    Polish man hurt in Ulster racist attack

    Polish man hurt in Ulster racist attack

    Press Association
    Monday November 15, 2004

    The Guardian

    A Polish man was taken to hospital after being injured in a racist attack in Co Armagh, police confirmed yesterday.

    The attack happened in the mainly nationalist Ballyoran Park area of Portadown early yesterday. One man has been arrested. The migrant worker was injured in the face.

    It was reported that an armed gang burst into the house he shares with two others and assaulted the man at around 4am. Police said they believe the attack was racially motivated. The man has been released from hospital.

    Nationalist politicians and community representatives have condemned the attack.

    Sinn Fein Member of the Legislative Assembly John O'Dowd said those responsible were not representative of the community.

    He said: "Speaking to people in the area this morning, there is a very clear sense of anger. I intend to meet up with community groups, clergy and others to discuss what steps can be taken to prevent any re-occurrence and to try to re-assure other members of the migrant worker community."

    Breandan Mac Cionnaith, chairman of Drumcree Community Trust, said local people were ashamed. "Those responsible are hoods and thugs who prey on the most vulnerable within our community."

    I don't understand how it could be racially motivated if he is Polish.

    Perhaps a Gypsy?

    Perhaps, or simply because he is a foriegn immigrant. Considering that the Unionist and Nationalist communities consider each other to be "foreign", a Polish person doesn't stand much of a chance

    In mainstream thinking, race and ethnicity are frequently confused, or the terms used interchangeably.

    For example, a black person in England is an "ethnic minority" (as opposed to the more accurate racial minority) -- and a non-English white person is not an "ethnic minority", regardless of origin or how many of them are in England.

    This particular case can more accurately be described as violence against another ethnicity, not race.

    Does anyone know whether the "racists" were white?

    I don't believe it mentions the attacker's race explicitly anywhere.
    The statements have all been issued by the Nationalist/Republican community with regards to it, and thus article seems to infer that members from this community where to blame, however we are ultimately left to guess. It basically sounds as if they don't know who the attackers were, but as it happened in a Nationalist area, they are assuming it was the work of Nationalists

    If it was non-whites attacked, you can be sure that we would know if the culprits were white or not
