Craig David recently spoke about growing up on a council estate with his Jewish mother and visiting his West Indian father on weekends. He said he was 'pleased with the breadth of his gene pool.'
The young singer says he never experienced racism at school, indeed, he doesn't seem to have encountered it at all, apart from the time US promoters wanted him to ditch his white guitarist for a black one to appear more urban. ‘At school, there would always be banter, people trying to gang up, but for me to talk about the colour thing, I might as well go home and diss my mum. I'm never going to talk about a colour thing, because I'll always be in the middle of it.'
