My ethnic group is ...

Today I finally got around to ringing these people, to offer my services as a reading helper. The application form will be in the post to me tomorrow.

The only thing of note about the conversation, which was otherwise most informative and definitely made we want to press ahead, was that they wanted to know – or warned me that they were going to want to know, I forget which – my ethnic group. Those, I suppose, are the times we live in.

I told them I was "white", the word "Caucasian" not being ready at the top of my brain. Just in case you were wondering.

Does this mean I'll be helping only white children?
