    Britain was 99.8% white back then. 

    The leftists who drone on about how Britain has always been "multicultural" because there were black and Indian people in Britain in the 1800s always ignore the fact that they were an extremely tiny number. 

    60 years ago it was possible to live in London and Birmingham and never meet a single non-white because they were so few in number.

    I don't get why leftists can't just be honest about it instead of trying to gaslight the public by pretending we've already been multiracial. Even if you like how Britain is now, it's no reason to rewrite history.

    The Race Relations Act 1965 was the first piece of legislation in the UK 

    to address the prohibition of racial discrimination and followed previously unsuccessful bills.  The Act banned racial discrimination in public places and made the promotion of hatred on the grounds of ‘colour, race, or ethnic or national origins’ an offence.  

    The Bill received Royal Assent on 8 November 1965, and came into force a month later on 8 December 1965. It was introduced by the Government in response to the increasing number of people who had moved to the UK from other Commonwealth countries; at the time of the Act being passed there were nearly one million immigrants living in the UK. It was criticised for failing to address vital areas where discrimination was most prevalent, namely employment and wider aspects of acquiring accommodation. This led to the passing of the 1968 Race Relations Act, which made unlawful acts of discrimination within employment, housing and advertising.

    Because ethnic minorites were much rarer and we lived in a predominantly monochromatic society until 1965 so a race relations act was not required.
