Stephen Lawrence pair face murder trial

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13438629

"Gary Dobson, 35, and David Norris, 34, are accused of killing the black teenager at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London, on 22 April 1993."

"They said: "The murder of Stephen Lawrence, a young black man of great promise, targeted and killed by a group of white youths just because of the colour of his skin."

Obvious emphasis on the fact that it was a White-on-Black crime

However, contrast this with:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/2946152.stm

Six Asian guys murder 1 White guy, not a single mention of race in the entire article.


Just seems like a perfect example of one rule for X, another for Y rule. I just wish that people would treat all races equally, is it so much to ask?

It was a racial attack. Details of skin colour should be reported when race is what caused it.

Second attack seems to have been theft rather than deliberate race based murder

Media sensationalism is nothing new, be it racism or the next deadly flu.

Because justice is only now being served. It has been taken back to retrial,apparently they have found 'new' reliable evidence.

Racists like this person I quoted are exactly the reason I made this thread - they think that racism can only apply to certain races.

What's an Asian? Asia's a pretty big place. Bottom line is BBC doesn't want to say Pakistani. So they lump Indians and Bangladeshis in to make the Pakistani community feel better, even though Pakistanis commit most 'Asian' crimes.

Oh FFS this was a racially motivated crime so race should be mentioned. Had it not been racially motivated itd be a different story. May i aslo point out that this was 18 years ago when racism was even worse then it is now. These men never got punished. It really pisses me off when people try and moan at how hard the White man has it. People like you op don't reAlise how good you have it. Yes some black and Asians can be racist towrds whites but I doubt that it has ever been on the scale that black and Asian people have had it. Like someone said you don't know what racism is.

Another racist I see.

Unless you're going to actually address the point made in the OP, take your racist rants elsewhere.

Oh so anyone ho disagrees with you is a racist? Like I said you donut know what racism is throwing it around like that. I dis adress your post. You are a stirrer as can be seen by your highlighting of only certain parts of my post. You said that the BBC was being racist and I am pointing out that it is not racism but fact and that your concept of what is racist is flawed. I also pointed out the black and Asian people can also be racist. I find you very juvenile. I truly hope that you never have to face real racism.

Only because they are anti-white and trying to get the point across that all white people are evil.

I'd have to agree and disagree. I think the same things happen with 'Asian' and most notably 'Muslim.'

But yes, I hate it when they include pedantic deals just to fuel hatred/other reasons. Like when Zidane head-butted that Italian dude, the news report spoke about whether he was a practising Muslim or not??

Treating one race differently (with a negative bias) relative to another race is racism. Get that into your skull, racist.

I know. It is quite shocking. Especially as literally everyone knew/knows who the murderers were/are. The Media made such a huge deal out of it (rightly so) I'm sure names and addresses were even published. I hope this time the evidence is actually substantial and those pigs get put away
