A little while back, a few left-wing blogs (including this one, kinda) revealed how the rules on treating suspected terrorists change depending on whether or not the suspect has white skin. A number of very tenuous claims of a terrorist threat have attracted screaming tabloid headlines and provoked chin-stroking looks and liberty-snatching measures from politicians when said tenuous claims are about Muslims. A very real terrorist threat was overlooked by the same media and political establishment because it was planned by a caucasian Nazi.

Just in case British readers feel that they, as a nation, are unique, cast your eye over this essential article about a very similar situation in the US.
