He was described as Asian in news reports at the time.

Now he has been sentenced, the media are noisily referring to the incident as a racially-motivated attack on a black teacher, while failing to mention the race of the pupil. I'll leave the obvious inference by omission to the reader.

I get your point. The inference is than it must have been a white to black racially motivated attack because all whites and only whites and racist and everyone else is the victim.

But why did the media describe his race at the beginning then drop the reference later?

From the Guardian Article;

the boy, who is of Pakistani origin,


I doubt they are referring to a white Pakistani.

He's referred to as Pakistani in the article. Remind me again how many white, latino, or black Pakistanis there are?

Well during the Rochdale and Rotherham outcries, Muhammad Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Asif Muhammad and his mates, of Pakistani origin, might have been Christian, Buddhist or a believer in the Norse Gods for all we know and if you disagreed you were racist.

At the time I made my comment no news media was referring to his race. It's almost unnerving that the Guardian of all places has edited it in.

I understand the point OP is making, in modern society when the media talks of a racist murder of a Black man, the implication is that the racist murderer was White rather than Pakistani.

Some creative spin here:

An anti-racism charity claims the racially motivated stabbing of a black teacher is linked to the anti-immigrant language used by politicians.

A teenage boy who stabbed a teacher, Vincent Uzomah, and boasted about the attack in racist terms on Facebook was given an 11-year sentence on Monday at Bradford crown court.

Laura Pidcock, education manager at the anti-racism education charity Show Racism the Red Card, said the incident, on 11 June, should be seen in the context of derogatory remarks about migrants made recently by politicians and the media.

Of course, because even when it's not a white person doing it, it's still white people's fault, somehow.

Haha I was being facetious but they were obvious Muslim names (I think half of them were literally called Muhammad and their names were published at this point) but people on here were trying to tell others they were racist for assuming they were Muslim.

Wtf, why would a British Pakistani, probably first or second generation immigrant in a hugely diverse city, stab a black teacher in response to language on migrants?

He is pakistani. Its not that surprising that he'd be racist to the black teacher. There is a major problem when it comes to racial discrimination towards those with darker skin in India and Pakistan, it stems from hindu caste system.
