Teen gang bash couple over rubbish bin dispute

Paul said he suspected his attackers to be of African and Asian origin and urged them not to be drawn into the same sorts of problems that they might have fled in their homeland.

“These people that do these things, have got to think of the other people living here, that come from the same background, and for their parents’ sake and for the younger ones coming up. Their future is here, not back where they come from.’

As far as I’m concerned, it’s the Africans who fled their countries. Most of the Asians are children of immigrants/second generation chinese from South East Asia. They’ve never experienced war.

In the words of one of the African attackers:

“Don’t worry Paul, you have proved you are a bigoted idiot.”

    ermm perhaps there is a difference between a bigot and someone slightly ignorant? A bigot may have had a less understanding reaction…however misguided Pauls reaction may be, it is not deserving of your scorn. The man has just been beaten up by thugs, judging by your comment I doubt you could be as forgiving! Shame on you.
