Is Race The Problem Or Is Using It As Excuse Damaging Britain

In the UK, it is very common to propose punishments for criminals based on their racial heritage. And the more complex that heritage is, or the farther away that heritage is to what is considered 'Britishness', that elusive indefinable term, the worse that punishment, wrapped in hate of all manner would be.

Although I know of no research about this, it seems the legal professional is the only sector in the UK bereft of this stupid approach to solving problems. But I wont be shocked to find out that some atom of the above can be found in that field too.

Take for instance, when two young black heritage British men (Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale), hacked a fellow British [soldier] man to death on the streets of Woolwich in Southeast of Greater London, on 22 July 2014, the tripe that followed were unbelievable. Some called for the 'deportation', some blamed Islam, others blame political-correctness, a few accused all immigrants while almost all the above heaped it on immigration.

However, what you may not have thought or considered, is that just 8 months prior to that horrible event, on the 18 September 2012,

Ice Bucket Bandwagon: Cheap Publicity For Insatiable Public Figures

There's a new craze in town. Actually, not just in town but almost across the world. Everyone that want to be seen or heard must do it. And yes, to re-emphasize on that being seen or heard, they go the extra mile not just to video it but also to inform the media through their connection or even post the video to them and surely pull all the strings to ensure it makes the headline.
But of course, editors are chief favour granters; they have and run the propaganda machine anyway so they can feed us what they chose while fulfilling theirs and their ilk's silly little games. But hey, before you mind it, they of course do it in a way that subtly tug our our emotions. Why not? They almost seems to love it that some of us are in trouble; be it for being i  war zones or living with HIV or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It really doesn't matter so long as that condition scores them some expensive selfish fame to further their career.

This time is the pouring of ice bucket and trailing it in the media; all media. So much like a plague one

The West's Unfair Solutions To Unfair Situations Is Biting

Yesterday, saw the President of America and the Prime Minister of Britain rattled but at the same time controlled, if not unsure of what to do, after the horrible killing of American journalist, James Foley. Like on 22nd May 2013, when two British young men killed another British young soldier man in broad daylight on the streets of London, the response was to attack extremism.

The sad news is that, both governments has got it utterly wrong. In fact, the more threat to reel out the more radical [young] people will become. Com'on, we all know that we like to attempt things when our parents threaten us not to. Perhaps, that analogy is too simple, they it is truth and the stark reality. For govts however, policy usually have take a top-down approach which is why majority of policies fail in actual sense.
