Persian is rhyming slang for drugs. Persian rugs=Drugs. So when Freddie said he was Persian, what he actually meant was that he was off his tits on some illegal substance or other.
Freddie was born in the east end of London and was fond of jellied eels, having a good old knees up and domestic abuse.

fatty.

Can anyone be fucking serious around here to someone asking a question? No wonder QZ has such a bed reputation.

Freddie's family were living in Zanzibar at the time of his birth, not India. The word written by "Race" is "Parsee". That refers to Freddie's religion. Parsee or Parsi's are followers of the Zoroastrian religion. Hope this helps to clarify things a little further...
