Keith A of Hertford, my question is a historical one. I'm aware that most people living in the nations that now constitute the UK had little if any contact with People of Color in the 19 century and earlier.


The Borchester Echo, with regard to your comment that "Women nowadays regard it as insulting to be called "ladies" and deplore the sexist attitudes of those still lurking in the backwoods" , I'll take your word that this is true regarding the women of your acquaintance. And it may also be true regarding other women in the UK.

However, your comment is definitely not true everywhere in the world. For example, it's definitely not true among every population in the USA.
