Based on empirical grounded ethnographic observations, this paper sets out to highlight the rules of engagement which currently govern interactions across the minority/majority boundaries in middle-class professional contexts, and shows how commitment to currently conventional understandings of "anti-racism" amongst white professionals can nevertheless be wholly comparable with the systematic marginalisation and exclusion of their minority colleagues, most especially when those colleagues fail to conform to the unspoken rules of engagement.
