    If they renamed them all "the white boy" and replaced black faces and black heads with white ones, people would say that was racist too

    plenty of people seem to have misunderstood the reference before and put picture of African boys on the pub signs, now replace those with a picture of Charles II and Tom is your uncle!

    Nigel Farage has made various complaints over the years that he feels ridiculed by the pub name "The Cock Tavern".

    This is getting silly. So are they going to rename my local next? I enjoy a good pint at The Klansman.

    If the phrase white boy was about a king and it is what his mum called him then I don't think so.

    Yes, that's true. But it was because of his slightly dark and swarthy complexion.

    Oh dear ..

    Also, his family name "Stuart" actually derives from the same root as "swarthy" (like the German "schwarz" come to think of it).

    So his paternal ancestors must have had dark complexions as well.

    or Steward. That seems to be disputed.
