The race brouahaha resulting from MacPhersons grossly unfair report has, according to the Chief of Police, resulted in “his officers [being] so afraid of being accused of racism when dealing with ethnic minority colleagues that they found it hard to admit it when they made mistakes “for fear that by owning up to shortcomings they may themselves become the subject of allegation”. “There is a particular nervousness about dealing with issues raised by or about black and minority ethnic staff and officers,” he said.”
The inquiry heard that middle managers were so fearful of race they botched tackling minor indiscretions by ethnic minority staff. These officers were then hampered by a “failure to administer tough love” at an early stage. [Source: Guardian]”
Now if the police are scared of crossing their own colleagues, how can anyone still believe that they are persuing ethnic minority criminals with the same zeal as always considering the even greater risk of accusations they face from non-white criminals alleging racism?
It is sad to see the police so desperately trying to solve problems that are being created by the very “solutions” they are forced to implement.
For example, The MacPherson reports demands more minority police so the Met starts to frantically recruit minority police officers, no doubt lowering standards and overlooking faults in an effort to meet the targets. They end up with some minority officers who would not have been hired were they white. These officers have more problems, perform worse, get promoted less and are subject to more disciplinary actions.
These are then taken as evidence that the police is racist and discriminating which prompts more severe sanctions and targets…and the cycle continues.
Macpherson demanded that Lay advisory boards be set up to advise (well, command) the Met on race. Thewe boards are made up of people whose only real qualification is that they are not white. many of them are seasoned race warriors and police haters. I am not surprised that they force the police to carry out these foolish “measures”.
[Side note: It is odd that race relations in this country are trusted to radical non-whites when the country is overwhelmingly white. The point has been made to a tiresome degree but why is the Council for Racial Equality so overwhelmingly non-white, where are the white people to represent 75% of London’s population on the Lay Advisor Groups and why is it Mayor of London has as his “race Advisor” a black radicals and self-confessed racial separatist, Lee “Black Power” Jaspers?]
Whilst black and Asian criminals are out there doing their bit for race relations unmolested by race timid police (85% of muggers, over 50% of gang rapists and 90% street gunmen* are black or Asian). Londoners like me keep seeing Ethnic Minority crime and but only hearing about police racism. I see massive resources poured into fighting political correct causes like fighting “Hate Crime” or finding the killers of black victims (cue Stephen Lawrence or Damilola taylor) yet white victims of race crimes are not even acknowledged as victims of racist violence. I see a black drunk – subsequently convicted of disorderly conduct and resisting a police officer – attack police officers, but it is the police officers who end up in trouble because one them kicked at him whilst trying to arrest him [story]. And the “victim” was black. That is crucial. If he were white there would be no story.
The police meanwhile cowed by race are attending sensitivity classes, avoiding non-white criminals because of fears of being labeled racists and keeping quite about their non-white colleague’s wrongdoings.
This make me angry. I see an imbalance and an obvious double standard. Whilst I deplore racism and discrimination against anybody I am inclined to say to minority race baiters and white liberals who contribute so actively to these problems: Stop whinging. Stop attacking the police. Stop siding with
thugs and criminals just becuase they are from an Ethnic Minority. Stop being so paranoid about race and racism. Stop the thugs in your own
communities who prey on all of us. Fight racism, racial discrimination and racial favouritism within your own communities
(I think I may expand this in to “Limbic’s 31 recommendations to ethnic minority and immigrant communities” any suggestions for inclusion please e-mail me at email@example.com)
