Britain's race body to help disaffected whites
By Jeremy Lovell
LONDON, May 18 (Reuters) - Britain's Commission
for Racial Equality, charged with fighting bias against ethnic
minorities, is ready to take in disenfranchised whites as
the resurgence of the far right sends political tremors across
"Unless society begins to tackle
the problems of young, disaffected white men, we will not
reduce race violence," CRE Chairman Gurbux Singh told
Saturday's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
"I believe that if we are to create
social cohesion, we have to be concerned about all communities,"
His remarks showed how conditions have
changed since the Commission was created, at a time when racial
discrimination was seen as bias purely by whites against ethnic
minorities during Britain's absorption of immigrants from
former colonies. "The Commission is shifting and repositioning
itself," Singh said.
The far-right British National Party won
three seats in local council elections in the central city
of Burnley last month -- scene of race riots which struck
several cities in the region less than a year ago.
That the party won
its first ever seats in local government shocked a political
mainstream already reeling from the large minority vote for
right-wing extremist Jean-Marie Le Pen in France's presidential
Supremacist ? ? ?

A further shock this week was the huge
vote in the Dutch elections that thrust the anti-immigration
party of slain right-winger Pim Fortuyn from nowhere to second
place and a probable role in government in that normally liberal
"There are some deep divisions in
our communities, often fuelled not just by race but by poverty,
poor housing, poor education, no employment opportunities,
by people feeling that the existing political system is not
seriously responding to their need," Singh said.
"Some communities, white as well as
Asian and black, are inward-looking and insular. They need
to change. They need to open up and become part of the wider
community," he added.
