Except one idiot amongst 30,000 makes monkey noises at a minor league football game and it's national headline news.The thing I don’t get about anti semitism is the attention it gets compared to other forms of racism.
I bet every town in the U.K. has a wall with “pakis go home” or some such scrawled on it.
Likewise I bet political parties across the spectrum have members who have spoken out against Islam or immigrants. Yet inherent islamophobia in our main political parties, isn’t anywhere near as fashionable as anti semitism in the Labour Party.
For some reason anti semitism appears to be particularly unacceptable and gets more air time. My Facebook feed today is alive with people spouting outrage over this anti Semitic graffiti.
I’ve never seen these same people decrying racism towards black people.
Just to clarify, I think all racism is equally disgusting, I’m just struggling to see how this is any different or worse than what is going on up and down the country every day.
Why does it get so much more attention than any other form of racism?
