Just as the empire ended, when white princesses waltzed with new black heads of state in celebration of independence from colonial rule, the registers of racial whiteness in the home society quickened, and racial segregation - the colour bar - became ever more pronounced. Where are the connections to be located between the racial dimensions of decolonization overseas, and the colonial dimensions of race at home? Working back from the peak of Enoch Powell's influence in , Memories of Empire seeks to illuminate the impact of decolonization on the political life of the old metropole.
Decisive in this respect is the question of race, or more particularly the shifting dispositions of racial whiteness. The long colonial ordering of the idea of the white man, and of its various derivatives, constituted a powerful component in the ways that the empire came to be remembered: far from disappearing, the figures of white Englishmen and Englishwomen took on new force in the immediate aftermath of decolonization.

Our political correctness gets in the way of comprehending their realities. Take as one example, the Hon. In just two pages in the Eugenics Review, he noted the difficulties in classification of racial groups, describing Eurasians before as falling into roughly three groups — Portuguese, Chinese or British. Where they fell depended on dress, education, occupation and least of all on admixtures of actual blood.

After , he believed, rising Chinese nationalism and the greater education of more Chinese in Hong Kong would change definitions radically, faster. That conclusion was not wrong but some of his language in getting there might repel. The interesting point for modern students of Hong Kong history is that the subject of race has rarely been tackled in a systematic way. Other colonies and their imperial metropoles have produced reams of scholarly debate on the various racial and other groups within the colony, the treatment they received from their rulers, what rules and taboos existed that governed daily lives in often unexamined but hugely discriminatory ways, and, what was the fate of those people who crossed the taboos.
The Dutch, for example, have a rich culture of research, debate and publication on the Indos — the mixed-race or mixed-culture product of the union between Dutch and Indonesians. One point to come clear is that race, in such contexts is not about blood. Perceptions of a racial category often relied on things that were not racial at all, but were about language, dress, behaviour, and class. In British empire studies, fleeting attention has been paid to non-Britishness, but largely only to Anglo-Indians.

This matters in Hong Kong because there is almost no historical attention paid to what is perhaps the most important factor in making Hong Kong the cosmopolitan society it is today. As in other empires, such study requires a confrontation with past taboos, many of which are still held today, most strongly by the victims of them.
In Hong Kong, the earliest example of racial conflict within the British establishment occurred in the case of the Government Interpreter, Daniel Caldwell. He was a valuable civil servant thanks to his proficiency in Cantonese, Hindustani, Malay and more. Analysis of race in Hong Kong history has yet to be done and integral to it must be an attempt to define class distinctions which were often more significant.
Poor people of all races mixed closely at the raunchy bars of Taipingshan. Wealthy Parsees and other Indians mixed socially with Europeans, and the business community was racially mixed; only the top of colonial government was strictly British. More work is needed.
