And the riots, condemnation, the "racist" overtones of this senseless killing that has caused rioting, damage and looting with another man shot on the anniversary.... BUT Funny how when it happens to a none ethnic person, nothing, no do-gooders jumping on the moral bandwagon, no looting and no riots...

Yes. I saw exactly the same comment republished in a British newspaper. The family of a white man shot dead somewhere in the US had expressed the same point. They asked why no fuss and public anguish from rent-a-mob etc.

Such is life. Minorities the world over grab the headlines the media are only too happy to provide.

What is a non-ethnic person anyway? Somebody with no ethnicity? Ethnicity noun the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition. TonyT is suggesting that non-ethnic people are under-represented when they are the victims of violent crimes, but given that everybody falls into an ethnic group I think it is fair to say that such people don't exist. Is this what happens when thick racists try to clumsily cover their tracks? :applause:

I am an ethnic person. My ethnicity is white british. A better title may have been 'anniversary of the black man being killed'
