Are you 'not consciously racist'? Take our fun quiz

AN FA panel has claimed ex-Crawley Town manager John Yems was ‘not consciously racist’ despite comments like ‘curry muncher’. So are you unconsciously racist?

A South Asian family moves in next door. Do you: 

A) Put up a BNP poster.

B) Congratulate them for integrating successfully, because a lot of them don’t, and say ‘No, where are you from really?’ when they claim to have moved from Peterborough.

You are a police officer. A young black man approaches you to report a crime. Do you: 

A) Taser him.

B) Say ‘Yo, what time is it? Fancy a breakdance, blud? I’m a big fan of Kanye Z.’

Two young Muslim men board the underground, wearing rucksacks. Do you:

A) Run off screaming ‘He’s reaching for a detonator!’

B) Ask if they’ve got any tips on making a curry.

You encounter a family of Orthodox Jews while walking through Stamford Hill. Do you

You are watching Football Focus and one of the presenters is Alex Scott. Do you 

A) Write a post on Twitter inanely claiming it’s illegal for white men to be football commentators. 

B) Write a post on Twitter protesting that having a black woman fronting Football Focus is ‘box ticking’ – and your imaginary black friends agree with you.

Mostly As. You are a racist, not an unconscious racist. Except when you’re asleep, then you’re an unconscious racist.

Mostly Bs. You vaguely mean well but you have quite a few racist bones in your body. Try asking yourself: ‘Is every person of the same skin colour exactly the same?’ You might be surprised by the answer!

Man successfully acquires all five herbs and spices

A MALE amateur chef is delighted with himself after obtaining all the five herbs and spices that exist.

Joe Turner, 36, who describes himself as a ‘self-taught culinary wizard’, went on a mission to collect all the rarest and most interesting ingredients from around the world.

Turner said: “I got into cooking during lockdown and I was a total natural. Early on I realised herbs and spices make food taste better. It’s a chef’s trick of the trade not many people know about.

“Before long I ended up collecting every herb and spice known to man. Basil, rosemary, really obscure ones like garlic granules. And that’s not including salt and pepper. It was a lot easier than I thought, to be honest – but then I do have a chef’s mind.

“You wouldn’t believe the look on people’s faces when I tell them I’ve got exotic ones like paprika. They probably think I’m mad or making the whole thing up.”  

Turner has now installed an impressive single-shelved spice rack in his kitchen to showcase his seasonings.

He added: “There are so many exciting, exotic dishes I can cook at home now, like spag bol. The gastronomic world is my oyster, although obviously you can’t eat those.”
