Q) When Is A Racist Attack Not A Racist Attack. A) When The 3 Attackers Are Muslim
As normal, not a single mention of this young couple being the victims of a racist attack or the incident being treated as a hate crime by police. Had it been a Muslim couple who had been the recipients of the kicking by 3 white guys the press and the Muslim professional defenders would be screaming racist hate crime, baying for blood before the victim had reached A&E. Its about time people woke up to the fact that racism works both ways.

CCTV captures trio of thugs who attacked pair in shop
Police are hunting for a trio of thugs who beat up a young couple after following them into a Wolverhampton shop.
Security cameras caught the three attackers chasing the couple – both in their 20s andfrom Wolverhampton – as they entered Lifestyle Express, in Merridale Road, at around 5.30pm on Friday, August 16.
Moments later the male victim was hit across the head – causing a gash that needed hospital treatment – and stamped on after he fell to the floor.
His girlfriend was also assaulted by the men as she tried to pull them off her partner.
The first attacker – an Asian man of stocky build, believed to be in his late 20s and wearing sunglasses – was seen in the CCTV stills confronting the boyfriend before lashing out.
His two accomplices – an Asian man in his early 20s and a black man thought to be approaching 30 – quickly joined in the attack.
Investigating officer Det Con Manjit Gill said: “It’s understood there was some kind of argument leading up to the attack. It was a nasty incident that put one man in hospital and left his girlfriend battered and bruised.
“These three ganged up to assault a man in broad daylight and then thought nothing of assaulting his girlfriend as she tried to intervene.
“The security cameras have captured very clear images of the men – I’m hoping people will recognise them and contact us.”
Anyone with information can call DC Manjit Gill at West Midlands Police Force CID(Team B) at Bloxwich police station, or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
