This dates back to the latest controversy which has unfolded in United Kingdom, wherein 83-year-old, Lady Susan Hussey resigned from her royal duties, courtesy to unacceptable racist conduct. It came to be known that Lady Susan continuously kept asking a ‘black’ British charity worker – Ngozi Fulani about her whereabouts and history.

Made aware to the world by BBC, Ngozi revealed that Hussey repeatedly kept asking her, ‘where she really came from,’ despite many reminders given in an event on Tuesday. To be precise Fulani described the incident as a ‘violation and ‘interrogation.’
