    Your sentence indicates racial bias. ;-)

    Love ya', Caine. Couldn't help myself.

    Clearly it happened because Black/Asians asked to get stop and searched 70% more. That means nothing

    The police are still instititionally racist, not much has changed except it's just more undercover.

    Police 'still institutionally racist' - Telegraph

    But to be very fair to the police, it has changed from the time of Stephen Lawrence. I mean, now they actually investigate when someone dies rather than be 100% incompetent. Always a thumbs up and who says I don't give kudos
    So you believe all news articles written with a bias?

    LOL... Your article accuses these departments of racism because they fail to meet Minority Hiring quotas..

    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I give respect when it is due.
    No doubt it is the same for any other individual.

    Actually I gave you links from BBC, Independent, Guardian.

    Independent is highly respect.
    Would you prefer daily mail?

    This is not a 'one paper' thing. All papers say the same thing, even those scary right wing ones :P

    Re: Are White People an oppressed minority?

    .... the overuse of stop and search techniques against black and multi-ethnic groups.

    And some police forces are still "dragging their feet" when it comes to recording and reporting racist crimes, it was claimed.


    It raised concerns about the disproportionate number of black and Asian people stopped and searched in most force areas, the high proportion of black men recorded on the DNA database

    Must have missed it.
    No problem tho.

    you would be sadly, incorrect. the problem is that too many minorities are totally clueless as to when respect is due. they don't think that anyone but themselves are due respect

    Re: Are White People an oppressed minority?

    Here's my beliefs and experiences with this.
    White people (great how I'm labeled as nothing more than a generic color) aren't oppressed in most instances, although I do think we get a raw deal in the blame department.
    Often, the crap our ancestors went through is marginalized, which in many instances mimics the often cited Jim Crow laws.

    In the end though, I think it's 80% culture you're raised in, which determines your likelihood of success and little has to do with race.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    big freaking whoop, if you are stopped and you are not guilty of anything then what real harm has been done?

    as for the DNA database...if so many black men weren't criminals perhaps they wouldn't be so highly represented on the database. furthermore, unless you plan on being a criminal, what is the problem with your DNA being on file? It is standard practice in the military. My DNA has been on file since 2000 and I have somehow managed to not be wrongly convicted of a crime.
