(his father must have been half black i guess)

Have to disagree,he doesn’t have to be half.It does increase the chance of a white baby,but it’s not necessary.

There would be a whole lot more people like him in the UK,if they hadn’t shipped all those babies out in the 40’s to the U.S.Only the ones who could pass for white,were allowed to stay.

Any proof for this?

I doubt that. They allowed lots of Afro-Caribbeans (as well as Indian and Pakistanis) to come in to Britain from the late 40s onwards.

You can doubt all you want. However ones that look white like him,You wouldn’t know they were part black unless they told you. Even Martin didn’t know he was part black
