Dead Rite chapter 165.12

“Not in Laverstone, anyway.”

“Not anywhere. There was still blatant racism on television. Enoch Powell and the National Front. The right wing newspapers advocated violence toward non-whites of any description. Even in America the civil rights movement was hapered by the prejudices of the people in power.”

“It still is, I think you'll find.”

“Yes indeed. Even a black president couldn't help there.” Jasfoup shook his head. “All those middle-class white folks walking four-abreast down the road to Hell. It's enough to make you cry.”

“Would a demon weep for humanity?”

“Of course. We don't want to see you all wiped out for something as simple as racism. Not when there are so many other sins you could be damned for.” He stared into the distance, a half-smile on his face. “Do you miss the old me?”

Harold shook his head.” No. Not at all. You were a jerk.”
