Chapter seven assesses whether the introduction of ‘new aliens’ into Liverpool, in the form of the Afro/Caribbean and Chinese communities, may have provided an alternative focus for prejudice, which had ‘previously’ been directed primarily towards Irish Catholics. The chapter examines but also challenges this perspective, highlighting that Liverpool has some of the oldest and most established Black and Chinese communities in Europe. In doing, it is demonstrated that anti-Black and anti-Chinese racism became more discernible than sectarianism.
