Britians' Race Riots? Shhh...

Great Britian is an example of the cancer of political correctness eating away at a once vibrant body. Now watch, as the whole liberal theory unravels before your eyes - Melanie Phillips is our narrator:

...a rumour spread ...that a 14 year-old black girl had been gang-raped by between three and 25 Pakistani men...in the disturbances that followed a black Christian was set upon by up to 11 armed youths and stabbed to death as he walked home from the cinema, a mixed-race man was shot dead and an Asian taxi-driver was attacked.

And the media exploded the way it always does when there are race riots, correct? Eh, no...

By any standards such occurrences are deeply disturbing. If this had been white on black violence, there would have been a media feeding frenzy and the newspapers would have been full of reconstructions, analysis and instant opinions and recriminations. Instead, there has been near silence. The reason is obvious. The cult of multiculturalism holds that all minorities are victims of the majority, and therefore minorities must always be blameless. When two minorities start beating each other up, therefore, politically correct Britain is paralysed. By definition, it cannot divide up the actors in the drama into good guys and bad guys. There can be no minority bad guys. It dare not investigate what actually happened, who started it and who was to blame because no minority can ever be blamed without incurring the dreaded labels of ‘racism’ and ‘prejudice’.

And our progressive betters help society thusly:

The result is that a serious and dangerous breakdown in community relations has not been investigated or analysed, the murder of two innocent people has been treated with near-indifference and the implications for multiculturalism all but ignored

Its implications are obvious - multiculturalism is a non-working social model. When you immigrate to a new society, to a certain degree you must conform to its norms. The striving of the media to ignore events like these has actually drawn more attention to them. Fine with me...

And yet, may it be too late to save Britian?

That kind of attitude explains a lot about Americans - if it is typical of the kind of attitude that prevails.

A word in thine ear, small isolated, and frightened friend...

Don't come down to NZ. You would not be able to understand us. You would not see the fundamentals of our society at all.

It is not perfect, it is not totally peaceful, it is not crime free. We do have our problems. We have gang wars between different races, from time to time. There is a murder and two attempted murder arrests today for a "riot" in South Auckland a week back. The perps are teenagers who think LA color gangs are "neat".

But if you were in Auckland tonight, you could join the Indian community in celebrating Diwali. Three months or so back, and the flags were out in the suburbs as followers celebrated Bhudda's birthday. Come December it is Christmas, and you will find cross-cultural participation in that festival as well. Then it is the New Year. Then the Lunar New Year in February. Some Christians follow the strictures of Lent, in the same way that Muslims in the community fast at Ramadan. Then Easter. Passover is celebrated in the Jewish community.

We like to think that we are multicultural. I think that we are lucky, extremely fortunate to have that diversity and colour.

I read a blooger recently expressing his joy at seeing an eight y-o girl selling lemonade in a park to raise funds for a charity. I would feel that same.

I was sitting at the traffic lights outside our local intermediate school yesterday. Crossing the road on the pedestrian phase were two young lasses, about 9 or 10. They met up at the school gate with another and skipped into school with their arms round each others shoulders. The two crossing the road; one was white and blonde, the other Chinese. The third waiting at the gate was African. Truly, that sight gave me great joy.

Feel free to visit NZ, I believe you would understand it better than our deluded friend.
You are correct, coming to America, or almost any country in the world one is expected to conform somewhat.
Using multiculturism as an excuse for violence, as does our friend from NZ, is ridiculous.
