My first real encounter with racism/racial profiling was in the course of my post-graduate studies.
In the city I lived and schooled, the Black people were so few that we all knew almost one another, and would acknowledge each other with a smile and a “hi” whenever we walked past each other.

(Act 1, Scene 1)
Boy-Boy: Good-morning Sir.
Small Oga: Good-morning. What is in the News today.
Boy-Boy: Oga, it is Death.
Small Oga: Who is that?
Boy-Boy: Oga, people have been killed. Plenty of them. Reports say it is the animal keepers at work again. Big Oga’s first cousins.

Hello. Happy New Year.
Did you put on weight over the holiday period?

(Pray tell: what is the point of depressing myself with figures, when I have the facts?)
