Re: Britains got Talent tonight
In 1972 two I worked in Reyrolles. My late father was a manager there but it cost me my job because I stuck up for a guy from Africa named Akimbobo Sobo who was a victim of racial abuse from a clique of nasty people in the same department. I was warned even by my own father to keep away from him but I defied them all and walked out of the factory alongside him because it was dammed unfair what they did to him. Even Akim warned me I would be sacked and a week later I was. A few years later I found out he had hung himself. He could no longer take the abuse. We know people play on racial issues but we must remember not all people are bad. The bad people in Akim's case were white.
