    I wish I was born in a different time but not 1660. Bloody hell.

    What do you mean?
    I'm a West African so the 1660s isn't the ideal time for my kind of existence, especially at the time when the Europeans were discovering my continent.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't think the slave trade had really got going by that point, certainly not with the racialist component
    I think you're right, the Europeans were just discovering the rest of the world at that point. I just wanted to point out that living in England in the early modern period wasn't likely to accommodate anyone different.

    Wasn't it? It was a different world. Mainly sectarian rather than racist, as long as you were a good Anglican/whatever was in fashion that week and didn't associate with rogues, whores and cutpurses I get the sense you were all right

    It's no different to saying the Greeks were all gay
