Yeah it was a good episode.

But....I can't watch it sometimes. I think it's because of the subject matter.

I come from a mixed family. I'm 1/4 black/African, the rest of me is white/British and Irish.

I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I first watched that episode. The bigots....black skinned people beating white skinned people.....white skinned people beating black skinned people. <sigh> With so much anger in the world it's a wonder that we're all still here.

I got my mum to watch the episode....she's mixed. She used to watch QL when I was young, it was because of her that I'm the big fan I am now.

My mum was quiet all the way through. She never hardly flinched. Not like me. I kept shouting at the telly and getting very angry. The part that really got to me was that when Ray's mother said..."Bringing up your children won't be easy anywhere. They won't be black and they won't be white."

I looked over to my mum and I asked her which does she consider herself? She said does it matter. My mum would of been about 6 years old at the time this episode is set but in a different country.

Sorry about my rambling, it's just episode hits me on a personal level.
