    Today if there is a bomb blast perpetrated by a white person, the headlines is "Blast in City kills..." but if it's done by a muslim, there almost always is a reference to their ethnicity / religion. What's up with the news these days?

    You honestly think this is only a recent phenomenon?

    Just did a search for 9.11, 7/7, the Paris attacks, and the Brussels attacks.

    The only headlines I could find with Muslim or their ethnicity in the title are those referring to backlash against Muslims, and not the attacks themselves.

    So you are wrong.

    It's been very bias in favor of Muslims, the mass rape of young women and girls has been repeatedly covered up and avoided by the media because the perps were Muslims.

    Whenever any of these terrorist attacks happen heads of state come out to say 'it has nothing to do with Islam' even though we have those that did it on camera saying they do it for Islam. They do this to obscure Islam as a motivation or Muslims are the perps. Doesn't fit your narrative now does it.

    Likewise when attacks happen, and they are happening in greater frequency, almost as if the rate of attacks is correlated with Muslim populations which is just crazy right, when they happen the newspapers and politicians say that we need to establish a motive when not deliberately sitting on the identity of the perps, when they are Muslims.

    By far my favorite, is when they describe Muslim pedophiles as Asian, or British Asians, or British Asians from Pakistan, specifically to obscure the fact the these people are Muslim. Asian communities in the UK have spoken up about this, because it is very unfair.

    This pretty much sums it up. The bias is very much in favour of Muslims, at the moment (despite the self-victimisation many like to use).
