The racism of racism: a rant.

Jason Osamade Okundaye is a student of Sociology and Politics, and an organiser of Cambridge University's Black and Minority Ethnic Society. 

He's been defending himself against criticism:

'I stated that regardless of sexuality, class, gender or age, all white people are racist, i.e. not just one type of white person,' he said.

You have to laugh, you know. 

Word To Use Today: racist. Rather pleasingly, no one is sure where the word race, meaning a group of related people, comes from, but it got to England via French from the Italian razza
