British journalism and racism
The climate of racial injustice that British journalists are
creating at present - especially against the Muslim community - concerns me.
I live in Milton Keynes and the local press is leading a subtle campaign against
Asians living in the city.
This certainly occurred in Oldham and other Northern cities. At a national level
white journalists seem intent on picking hotheads in the Asian community and
publishing their views. Shame they don't go down to a local pub and hear some
of the views I hear every day about the Asian community and publish them. This
is typical of a selective right wing-press. It seems to me that there are very few
non-right-wing journalists in this country. For every Brian Reade there seems to
be ten Sue Carrols, Peter Hitchens or Keith Waterhouses.
It is a sad and dangerous time especially for the truth.
