Not too long after the St Pauls 'race' riots.
St Pauls popularly considered as being a deprived inner city 'ghetto'.

His friends on his course were very similar.

They reeked of condescending evangelical missionary paternalism
in their attitude to the poor underclass folks
they would eventually be inflicted upon...
