Nailing The BBC's Inverted Racism

It's been a bad weekend for race relations.
There appear have been racially motivated white on Asian murders in both Preston and Huddersfield.
In another incident in London, the BBC reports that,
"A woman has been shot in the face by a man who opened fire on a group of people in south-east London.
The 25-year-old woman was in Kennington when two men approached the group in a black Fiat Punto on Friday evening.
A man left the car and fired shots into the group before the pair drove off. Police believe the attack followed an argument between the men and the group.
The unnamed woman was taken to a south London hospital with a gunshot wound to her cheek. She is recovering at home. "
But given that the BBC duly reported the racial element in the murders, why didn't they report that the London gunmen were black?

Because that would be wrong?

CA,

The report indicates that the crime is being investigated by a Metropolitan Police unit which deals with 'black on black' crime.

If race were not critical to the offence, then it seems pretty critical to its detection.

I was just being silly, actually. The same kind of thing happens here. It's stupid, but like I always tell you, there are some thing you just can't say here.
