The BBC is reporting that race crime charges have risen by 28%. They go on about anti Muslim violence then go on to say:
In race offences, the number of defendants pleading guilty rose by 2% to 71%. Overall 87% of race cases resulted in a conviction, while for religiously-aggravated charges, 98% of defendants were convicted.
Mr Macdonald said: "Racist and religiously-aggravated crimes are particularly nasty because victims are targeted solely because of their identity or beliefs.
What the BBC fails to mention is that most victims of racist crime are white. They should know about it. They reported on it in November.
