The perpetrators were a small portion of the larger Pakistani community and white political leaders and social workers looked the other way. Okay, then people should not have a problem prosecuting those who committed crimes and holding those responsible for covering up for them. So far, no one has been disciplined for failure to stop the abuse.
Other forms of prejudice seem okay in England today. And if you protest how things are going, they may target you.
There have been conflicts between the English Defense League and the neo-Nazi National Front in Rotherham, but how about addressing the underlying sexual abuse issue? Could this double standard explain the growing anti immigration backlash in Europe?
Can the media cover up/downplaying that allowed Rotherham to go on so long happen in the USA? Perhaps. There is a group that gets selective coverage by the media when it comes to the sexual abuse of under aged kids: TOM: HIV infected music teacher arrested for sex with 15 year old boy.
