The tragic picture of a 10-year-old girl below covered in blood kicked unconscious by her white Finnish classmates, raises a lot of interesting questions: One of these is why we’re not hearing what the victim’s parents have to say?
We have seen this play out before. The police are quick to claim that there is no racist motive in the media but they make no claim of this in their official statement.
Why would the police play down what happened Espoo, Finland?
The reason is simple: The police are anxious that what happened may provoke a reaction from the Muslim community. By stating there is no racist motive they are calming the situation.
Even if the police and the school want to brush this off as an innocent scuffle between children, we have to dig deeper. If there is a racist motive, the police must treat it as such and not deny it.
