When is it politically correct to beat gays and kill women?

Reason: Multiculturalism: It's Different for Girls "When is it politically correct to beat gays and kill women?"
Welcome to Politically Correct World, where acts that would merit unequivocal condemnation if committed by white males are viewed in a very different light when the offenders belong to an "oppressed group."
A gay man and his partner are beaten by Moroccan immigrants in Amsterdam - gay activists lament that the immigrants are an oppressed group and sometimes lash-out against gays. More ink was actually spent on the anti-gay problems in this country, than on the problems in Europe.

Honor killings, forced marriages, all hushed up by a media that does not wish to appear racist. (That's in Germany by the way.) We can't have that. It's better to sweep the unpleasant details under the rug. It would be horrible if the press just reported the facts, the unvarnished truth, and let each of us make our own conclusions. No they have to report only what they think is good for us to know - and being the press, they know what this is. </sarcasm> Unfortunately people continue to get hurt, because the press fails to do its job, which is to report the news.

All societies have problems. Certainly this one does, but excusing or hiding the problem when an "oppressed group" is at fault will not solve anything. It just enables the problem to get worse.
