Its only racism when the victim isnt white...

Not from Scandinavia, but I cant not blog it. From the BBC:

Christopher Yates, 30 (right - Henrik), was knocked to the ground and his head kicked like a football last November, the Old Bailey was told. ..

Sajid Zulfiqar, 25, Zahid Bashir, 23, and Imran Maqsood, 21, of Ilford, east London, will be sentenced on Thursday.

The court heard that after the attack Zulfiqar shouted, in Urdu: "We have killed the white man. That will teach an Englishman to interfere in Paki business." ..

Mr Yates's head was stamped on and he died from multiple injuries to his face, said Anthony Leonard QC, prosecuting.

The victim, from Barking, described as a quiet, harmless man, wandered into the university where he had been a student, after hearing music.

Mr Leonard said a teenage girl standing nearby heard the remarks in Urdu made by Zulfiqar. ..

After attacking Mr Yates, the group, all unemployed (and their mugshots all ont he left - Henrik), moved on to Ilford where they shouted racial abuse at a black resident who remonstrated after they damaged vehicles and set off car alarms.

An Asian member of staff was assaulted at a local curry house before Zulfiqar attacked another black man in a nearby street.

The prosecutors comment:

Mr Leonard said the reason for the attack was unclear, but the defendants had all been drinking all day.

You see, it isnt racism when whites are attacked. Useless nitwit

As of today, the sentence is life. (News item on BBC) Of course we will see what that means in real time.

And yes the news report did state that the court decision is that this was not a "racist" murder, and yes I am getting quite cycnical too. It's only racist when the person involved is of colour. Maybe that decision is racist in itself.
