It is well established that the white ethnic minorities, particulary Jewish are treated differently and media comes to their rescue (it does not mean they should not) but when non-white ethnic minorities are treated badly media plays duff. In fact, people like Prof Ian Gow was given an OBE despite the fact he was found guilty of racial victimisation by a Nottingham Tribunal.
Finlay with out cry in the media, a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old boy have been held following vandalism which left windows smashed on homes in the Donegall Avenue area of south Belfast. However,when Steve Lawrence was murdered, "there was more tolerance of racist attack in England too", but not reported by media until Nelson Mandela voiced his concern during his visit to London when he was released from South African jail after 27 years (apartheid regime supported by civilised superpowers).
More than 100 Romanians left and were put up overnight in a church hall earlier this week and have since been given emergency accommodation. Earlier, police searched several homes in the area in connection with the racist attacks.
A Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) spokeswoman said: "Police investigating the intimidation of Romanian nationals between June 11 and 15 in the south Belfast area have conducted two search operations in the Donegall Avenue area this afternoon." However, in November 2007 Dr Deman was attacked in the Fair Employment Tribunal Courtroom by a Roman Catholic Barrister of the University College Union but despite eye witness evidence to date no arrest has been made.
Romanian ambassador Ion Jinga met Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness at Stormont on Thursday.
He said he was encouraged by the response from members of the public, with food and blankets donated and the perpetrators condemned.
