Black American military personnel contributed to this 1945 report on the racist slights they experienced at hands of our British allies:
According to Negroes stationed in London, there is a lot of discrimination in a subtle form. They say Negroes are charged slightly more for their drinks in some pubs to discourage them from coming, and are turned away from restaurants which aren't full and are told that public places are closed if the hour is late... But some also admit that they may suspect discrimination where it doesn't exist."
However, it should be remembered that prejudice was not as widespread as this article let's on: Black Americans sired as many as 2,000 babies with the women of Britain.
