THE MAJORITY of victims of racial attacks are white, according to a report to be released next week by race relations watchdogs.
No whites allowed: Racism directed towards whites is increasing
The disclosure, days before the release of the findings of the inquiry, will provoke intense debate over Britain’s future direction as a multicultural society.
The Commission for Racial Equality, which has produced the report, called for detailed government research into the nature of racist attacks on white people.
CRE chairman Sir Herman Ouseley said: “It would be irresponsible for us to not try to take this on head-on and understand it better.”
He said: “It’s absolutely clear in our view that you can be black and racist. Clearly the evidence we have shows that this is not just a white problem.”
The CRE report, called Racial Attacks and Harassment, records that 238,000 white people told researchers they had been victims of a racial offence in a 12-month period, compared to 101,000 Asians and 42,000 blacks.
