” You can’t call them Black any more it is not PC”

Lionel Richardson, was born with three eyes, two of which were hazel blue, and one dark black with shades of red and blue. There was many visitors who came to witness this remarkable child, but non uttered that new-born nonsense, what a beautiful baby. A few days before Lionel’s birth, his mother had being drinking at a local shabeen, and her mouth had got her into an argument with a drunken man, who put the boot to her belly and the result was Lionel’s third eye. A black shiner, that covered half his face.
