I cannot imagine a sadder and more potentially controversial subject than that provoked by the trial of the nine predators who abused young girls in Rochdale.
I have a few questions, to my mind, its simple this crime was possible because the men involved appeared not to view white girls as equal, although according to the independent "Despite far-right claims to the contrary, the police, social services and the Crown Prosecution Service do not link the offences to the ethnicity of the convicted men – eight of whom were of Pakistani origin, while the ninth was an asylum seeker from Afghanistan. Instead agencies said it was a matter of criminal circumstance.
One question bothers me most and it is this, it seems some incredible coincidence, that the men involved were exclusively from a Pakistani/Afghan community and extraordinarily they didn't chose girls from their own ethnicity, just what are the odds of that happening since the authorities believe criminal circumstance rather than a racially aggravated crime it appears to most of us?
Perhaps I just don't understand, anyhow, I don't think its just me and I strongly recommend this article by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown from Wednesdays Independent.
Can we talk is a question that always comes to mind when discussing cultural differences, due to half wit PC arbiters.
