There was a story recently on the BBC about racism in Australia, which hinged in the act of one person on a train near Sydney hurling invective at some Asian children not giving up their seats to older passengers on the train.
Of course, I noted a few days before this was brought out by the BBC, that Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe had disenfranchised people of European dissent in that country, and was confiscating their farms, home and businesses, yet there was no mention of this event on the BBC at all.
It struck me as odd that Australia was being the recipient of mudslinging over the actions of one person, yet what happened in Zimbabwe was totally overlooked by the BBC. Could it be that Britain has overlooked Zimbabwe because of trade deals with that country, or that it did not want to antagonize Africans in general?
To me it seemed like the BBC was ordered to omit any mention of what was happening in Zimbabwe, because of trade.
Let us reasonable, and call a spade a spade, when the facts can be seen in the light of day, otherwise it becomes a case of reverse discrimination on the part of the BBC.
Equal justice under the law should be the rule and not the exception.
