Whitewashing Black-on-Black Crime By Richard Miller
Can it be? The BBC whitewashing black knife crime? The image is of puny journalists with a cans of white paint, going to a knife crime scene, and painting everybody, and everything, white, struggling with each brushstroke, with their fragile muscles burning. But, that is just a metaphor, of course.
“Trevor Phillips has accused the BBC of “whitewashing” crime stories by not addressing the high number of black-on-black stabbings, and warned politicians and police to stop ignoring the links between race and gang violence. Mr Phillips, the former head of the United Kingdom’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (ECHR), made the comments in an opinion piece in The Telegraph on Friday, following a string of stabbings in London and Birmingham. Referencing a report released on Thursday which revealed that some 27,000 under-19s in England identify themselves as being part of a gang, Mr Phillips noted that in terms of youth gang violence, “black boys are more than 20 times as likely to be involved in serious attacks compared with their white peers.”
Oh, that Trevor Phillips guy must be a white supremacist … no, pinkos, he is Black. Oops!
