Racism is bad - so is self-delusion

by Mark Styen writing for the Telegraph. Thanks Krishna109 for bringing this to my attention.
What's the deal with these riots in Sydney? You switch on the television and there's scenes of urban conflagration and you think, "Hang on, I saw this story last month." But no. They were French riots. These are Australian riots. Entirely different. The French riots were perpetrated by - what's the word? - "youths". The Australian riots were perpetrated by "white youths". Same age cohort, but adjectivally enhanced.
Guaranteed you will read the article in one gulp! Gulp away.

I took a particular liking to this bit;
These days, whenever something goofy turns up on the news, chances are it involves a fellow called Mohammed... Maybe all these Mohammeds are victims of Australian white racists and American white racists and Dutch white racists and Balinese white racists and Beslan schoolgirl white racists.
Golden material. All ye, hail Steyn! I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! Yeah I know I'm getting a bit of Deja Vu too, but Steyn out does himself this time!

    What unites both incidents, is not having political organization. In France there is no Martin Luther King or malcolm X, in Australia the rioters need to read a blog like this, which can show how to channel the rage.
