Sir: Roy Kerridge ("Single black female", Magazine, 23 August) peddles the old myth of "black culture", a device used by race supremacists through the ages to marginalise ethnic groups. The idea that all the peoples of the African diaspora participate in a particular set of customs and practices derived from a common heritage is as absurd as a common "white ethnic" culture stretching from the Urals to Cape Horn.
