Racism is perfectly acceptable in the UK now (Page 2)
lavendar_star: That was wrong of Diana Abbot even though her having a mixed race son i.e half white she cant be that racist. Also she has also been racist against black people ( who she plays to when election time comes around) n (who I dislike as I had personally encounter with her and received a racist response from her lol long story but I lived in Hackney) "only 7 months ago, in what is probably the most offensive incident she told a young, black, female conservative that she 'doesn't do the black thing' as she had joined the Conservatives"http://seanmchale.blogspot.com/2012/01/history-of-diane-abbotts-racist.html There was not much concern with that comment despite is racist assumption that all black people are the same.
like I said you only seem concerned with inequalities that affect white people????? As one should be outrages by all inequalities.
Perdurabo: Sorry for the late reply. The delay was due to me being extremely busy sowing seeds of discontent and division amongst the 'black community' as us white people are prone to do.
Back to the argument at hand....
Original post describes a violent racist attack.
Lavender with her reply justifies this attack and then explains that theer must have been some other contributing factor that made the attackers behave in this way because non-white people simply do not act in this way.
And to illustrate this point attaches a report that she takes at face value without applying the same scrutiny as she used on the original post and comes up with a rebuke that goes something like 'but look here, white people are doing this kind of thing all the time, therefore ur argument is invalid'
Also your figures from the Guardian are taken out of context and fail to take into consideration some factors that contribute to the high percentage of arrest rates amongst ethnic peoples, ie previous criminal history etc etc
'Also what if the attackers of the victim were white Muslims would you still be highlighting this crime or the victim was Hindu Asian??'
Also, those Somalians are in all likelihood unemployed and claiming benefit' as Somalians are one of the highest ethnic groups in the UK claiming welfare benefits.
OCD_OCD: Hate is wrong, but the fact that it is wrong has never stopped anyone. The point of division is where hate prevails over justice.
OCD_OCD: Hate does prevail over justice. The stoning death of a woman who has been raped is not justice.
lavendar_star: Peda-Lavender with her reply justifies this attack and then explains that theer must have been some other contributing factor that made the attackers behave in this way because non-white people simply do not act in this way.- Where did I say I was just trying to justify the crime or say non white people do not behaviour like that, I was to reasoning why the judge (just like Sarcastic Dot and Deep did but I didnt see you have such a sharp reply to neither of them!!!!!! or throw the same accusation at them, strange that) gave them a lighter sentence or no sentence as the case. Also the example I showed was to illustrate that injustices happen everywhere no matter the race of the victim or the person who committed the crime as you seem to be allured to.
Also, those Somalians are in all likelihood unemployed and claiming benefit' as Somalians are one of the highest ethnic groups in the UK claiming welfare benefits. - so there you are speculating yourself!!!! . For the issue was their religion not their race but now you say because of their ethnic group they must be claiming benefit what that got to do with the debate.
Please dont steer this into an argument based on race, as you are keen on doing. This is about inequality. Inequality is wrong without exception. Please you seen to have an issue with race yourself considering you opening statement, where did that comes from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!first Diana Abbott then that???????????why and for what reason, was that for my purpose and why!!!!!!!!
As I previous stated all crimes no matter the race of the victim or the race of criminal is wrong, as is any form of race crime, considering your statement, you seem to be obsessed with the issue of race, you first stated this was about religion and now your moving back to race again. hate is hate!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and is wrong
btw i would say we don't have black community in the uk especially black British Caribbean most are fully integrated i.e have white friends and from other races, partners ( 50%) and relatives and and most don't considering themselves to be separate or different from the mainstream and a part of a multi cultural community. One love not hate.
