Here’s a modern riddle for you.

Sometimes, in the headlines, it sounds like “I don’t know what it is, I just don’t like her” – when ‘her’ just happens to be the country’s first mixed-race princess. 

Sometimes, it’s in picking up a gun and shooting down eight people – six of whom just happen to be Asian women. 


This week, it’s in the lack of media outrage over a pregnant woman being attacked by a man as she walks home – a woman who just happens to be Jewish.


Often, it’s in the apparently random stopping and searching and sometimes shooting of young men – most of whom just happen to be black. 


What is it


It’s racism.
