I am not racist, far from it, but, the latest spin from the major public relations units is making a bad situation worse. It could not be more embarrassingly ludicrous, shameful, and out of touch.
Do the public relations people, working for the people in power, think that if they get the dummies (Senior police spokespeople) to say it often enough we will all absolutely believe it! They must think we are a nation that is so easily manipulated that we cannot think. Or maybe we are not meant to think; we are not meant to think what they think is the unthinkable, therefore we will not make utterances that could disturb the peace. There has even been very obvious selective research quoted, likely, out of context, to support their statements that there is no racial dimension to the sex vice ring currently in the news. How crass can it get.
Perhaps if I say this often enough, I will get a sensible response. If it baas like a sheep and it looks like a sheep, it is a sheep; if it quacks like a duck and looks like one, it is a duck. And as shown in my recent post, if it coos like a dove and looks like a dove, it is one. They may all be different colours and breeds, which differentiates them...but they are what they are.
Of course, the current case of the child sex ring is ethnically and racially rooted. As the judge said in his summing up of this frightening case, the men involved in grooming and using these vulnerable young girls, would not organise to do it to their own ethnic community girls.
The spokesperson for the respected U.K charity, The National Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Children,(NSPCC) was quoted with sensible comments, (at last) before the judge in this case summarised it. Apart from his comments on the race base of the offences, he added, there is a disproportionate representation of ethnic offenders in prison. To maintain a balance here, it has to be said, they are not all sex offenders, a term, which in itself is an umbrella description of a range of sexually motivated offences. However, there are various shades of white and other ethnic groups who traffic sex in the UK, some of whom have been caught and imprisoned.
When dealing with sex offending, you ignore the racial and ethnic elements of these offences at public peril. There is a lot of useful knowledge in understanding the various cultural backgrounds and, therefore, what additional distorted thinking supports the generation of these horrible offences. How you deal with sex offenders, will impact on everyone. A public denial of what we can see and officially hear, of what is obvious to a sentient individual, and is a denial by a section of the very authorities who are supposed to be fearlessly upholding the law, is totally unacceptable.
The message received is, the authorities are running scared. Because of the racial features of this current case,they are working the broken record technique to death, through the media, to lull us into believing there are no racial features. Bullshit!
