The mother of a schoolboy who was
asked whether he was 'brown because he's from Africa' today blasted the
school for turning the innocent question into a 'racist incident'.
Nicola Allen, whose son was four at the time of the incident, said the matter had been blown out of proportion after Griffin Primary School in east Hull launched an investigation into playground comments made by Elliott Dearlove.
She insists she never accused seven-year-old Elliott of being racist following the comment. She also says she believes the child is being unfairly treated.
But Ms Allen insisted she had never accused the child of being racist.
'Not at any point did I feel he was racist,' she said.
'He is seven years old. The race thing has come from the school. It is not the case that I said Elliott was racist.'
