The Truth About Racism In Britain

In 1995 (just 2 years after Lawrence's murder) The British Crime Survey estimated that, 382,000 offences were racially motivated. Of these 238,000 were against white people. Be sure to include this fact in any debate against a liberal.


Racially motivated incidents (Table 8.1)

8.2 The British Crime Survey (BCS) (Percy 1998) estimated that, in 1995 382,000 offences (2% of all incidents reported by the survey) were considered by the victim to be racially motivated.

Of these 143,000 were committed against ethnic minorities and 238,000 against white people.

Nine years later in 2004:


The most recent analysis shows that in 2004, 87,000 people from black or minority ethnic communities (BME) said they had been a victim of a racially motivated crime. In the same period, 92,000 white people said they had also fallen victim.

Focusing on violent racial attacks, 49,000 BME were victims. Among whites, the number was 77,000.

Of those that involved wounding 4,000 were BME. Among the white population it was 20,000.

Of those 'racially motivated' offences:


Describing an incident as racist may say as much about a victim's mindset as the offender. How else can one explain the British Crime Survey finding that 3,100 car thefts from Asians were deemed to be racially motivated?
