Did you make me for a gap in the market
Did I make me for a gap in the market

Extract from the poem ‘Booking Khan Singh Kumar’ by Daljit Nagra

The most unwholesome ideas of ethnic absolutism hold sway and they have been incorporated into the structures of the political economy of funding black arts. The tokenism, patronage and nepotism that have become intrinsic to the commodification of black culture rely absolutely on an absolute sense of ethnic difference

Paul Gilroy (Small Acts, 1993, pg 110-111)
