Sir: Can Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (Comment, 11 February) explain why she keeps using the term "black and Asian"? If "Black" no longer means "people of African and Asian origins who experienced racism because of skin colour", why are those of us who are not Asian being described not by culture or heritage but by skin colour: black (lower case)?
