A mass brawl broke out at a horse-racing meeting on Saturday for the second weekend in succession, with fighting at Ascot, one of the most exclusive racing venues, a week after a battle at Goodwood involving fifty people. The footage makes shocking viewing:
The media has covered the fighting. But it’s interesting to note the entirely different tone used than would have been employed had those involved been members of an ethnic minority.
Metro, for example, quoted Ascot’s communications manager talking about an “irresponsible minority”. But none of the articles are talking about a “privileged white person’s problem”.
It’s not hard to imagine the headlines had two mass brawls, in successive weekends, involving black or muslim people – or the number of talking heads that would be all over the media instead of a few short mentions in the press.
