I just saw a blatant example of racial discrimination in a well-known British Institution. What happened?

"I" = you, Admin?
Racial discrimination: against a black? Jew? Other foreigner?
Relevant exactly which race was being discriminated against?

British institution: a university? Place of government? Museum of some sort? Library?

Is it some kind of office? For example, a registration office? DMV (not sure what the British call it or if it exists at all - the office where you get your driver's licence etc)?
A hospital? a school?

Passports relevant? Other official documents?
Was it discrimination against a specific person? Blacks in general?

Was simply the colour that suggested discrimination, or it could have been applied to anyone (a white Arab, one from Asia, someone else perceived as an immigrant by the folks there?)

Is it anyway an immigration office?

Public money -- some office funded by the city hall? A hospital? A church?

did they have an apparent reason for the discrimination?

is there an attribute of black people which makes them unsuitable for something? more suitable for something? don't know where I'm going with this but my first thought was colour blindness and then the freqency of sickle cell anaemia

Was this a single act of discrimination?
An ongoing situation?

Anything to do with weapons?
Machinery?
Military parades? Or other rituals?
Uniforms?
Camouflage?
Haircuts?? (I think Nimue once did a puzzle about this)

Painting your face/body to blend in with the surroundings? Was a black person's face not painted? Because the black skin would blend in with the dirt?

Correct. I saw a group of soldiers going on a training exercise in the woods. They were in camouflage kit and carrying rifles and packs. The white soldiers all had their faces smeared with black paint (or mud) while the black soldiers did not. A clear case of differential treatment based solely on the colour of their skin. Shocking :]
