Report by Jane Edwards.
Doreen Lawrence OBE is again commanding the subservience of the media in its backing of her latest campaign against the white community in general, whom she still insinuates sympathised with the murder of her son Stephen by white thugs. In the days when. Ken Livingstone was in charge, her organisation received £1.9m of taxpayers money from the London Development Fund to further her campaign.
She obviously has clout and her demands for a new and total enquiry into the death of her son and the role played by the police is likely to be met by Hogan-Howe, the new Commissioner of the Metropolitan police, who will recommend it to the Home Secretary. Hogan-Howe is the former Merseyside Chief Constable who was renowned for his victimisation of nationalists and pro-left stance on Merseyside.
I certainly condemn the murder of Stephen Lawrence all those years ago and would go as far as agreeing that the Police at the time were initially unconcerned as to how he died. But I equally condemn the manner in which our media, who always ignore the murder of whites by blacks, has persistently tried to present him as a wonderful student, full of good works, and destined to join the sainthood. He certainly did not have a police record, but his close mate Duwayne Brook, a registered drug addict, did and wore a tag at one period. Some local people at the time were quoted as saying that Lawrence also did some drug dealing and that he was noted for taking dinner money off other kids at his school. Admitted this could be hearsay. The rumour that still abounds in the area that his murder was not racist inspired but because he had tried to move in on some white youngsters drug-dealing territory can also no longer be proven.
It is also significant that the media did their best to hide the photo published here of St. Stephen giving the Black Power salute – not that that is a crime; merely an indication of his attitude. The photo is by courtesy of the Wigan Patriot site.
As I write, the media is waiting in the wings for the imminent death of Nelson Mandela . They have long prepared their panegyrics for the glorification of this former terrorists who was responsible, whether in or out of imprisonment, for the murder of numerous black and white men, women and children to gain Black rule in South Africa. It is not the recognition of a black leader who righted some of the wrongs that black Africans did indeed suffer that I object to, but the manner in which drooling white journalists and BBC commentators will take the opportunity to abuse their own kith and kin.
