”I’m Black, so you don’t have to be” by one of my fave writers and heroes, Colin Grant for Granta magazine
I’d spent many years attending to the fragility of white colleagues like J.B., and he looked genuinely aggrieved and unsettled. No doubt, he’d grown accustomed to the idea that I, thankfully, wasn’t like those other angry black folk. In our rarefied world of broadcasting J.B. had never had to take recourse to saying, ‘Oh, you’re playing the race card’ (which in my experience is actually the card white people play when they don’t want to talk about race; shutting it down). Perhaps J.B. was disappointed with himself and with me for having forced from his lips such clichéd sentiments.”
