Should all Yorkshire men be politely asked to leave the UK?

Ian Huntley from Grimsby, Yorkshire murdered and raped two girls. I think it was an awful crime but see know reason to generalise and say ALL people from Yorkshire are like Ian Huntley.

But why do people think they can generalise about Muslims because of the actions of an individual. (Look at this question)

That crime was awful and I feel really sorry for the family. But it riducualous to say that whites are the viticms of most racist crimes. There have been at least 68 racist muders since 1993. 13 were Muslim victims only one was white.

Here is a recent racially motivated attack against an Asian. Yet it got little coverage

Why is it when ONE muslim commits a bad act ALL muslims are blamed. You wouldn't blame all women for Myra Hindley, would you????

    I personally do not blame any whole group (unless its Al-Qaida all of them should die) for the actions of individuals, and yes that question you highlighted is just plum crazy.

    Its because of the usual anti-Muslim biases, you know half-baked &/or totally false ideas like all Muslims have given their blessing to Osama and Fiends, or all Muslims hate Western freedoms etc. Yes its wrong, yes its unfair, yes it has to be corrected.

    In this day and age however, asking people to drop their biases is about as easy as asking Osama bin Laden to surrender (i.e. next to impossible).

    Some of the answers to that question were truely disgraceful.

    I am still appauled at the blatent racism in this country, especially towards muslims. It's almost a badge of honour to be anti muslim in some parts of this country. Not that you can blame all of them personally, they are just naively repeating the biased drivle spouted by many tabloid newspapers.

    it's the 'if the sun says it's true it must be' phenomena.

    Sad, very sad. And I often feel ashamed to live in this country because of it.

    I think it's time for all white countries to stop letting Muslim and Mexicans into their country. They want so badly to come live in our country but yet they hate white people. Then stay out! But don't worry just keep doing what your doing and we will throw you out on our own.

    No, but I heard that most people think that terroristic religious zealots who try to spread their religion through lies, fake smiles and violence are not liked. Just what I heard.

    I think concerned UK citizens should probably contact their representation on the issue...illegal immigration's a global problem...
