Laws 'are stifling DEBATE on White Flight.

Which threatens to segregate
communities, a Government adviser has warned.
Professor Ted Cantle claimed laws
designed to stop extremists stirring up racial hatred were becoming
'part of the problem'
-because individuals felt unable to
voice unease over changes in society.
He called for 'greater tolerance' for
those expressing fears and warned unless such concerns were debated
openly they would be driven underground.'
Professor Cantle, who was commissioned
to write the Government's report into the 2001 race riots, spoke out as
a BBC Panorama investigation highlighted evidence of segregation between
white and Asian Muslim communities in Blackburn.
Producers found many white residents
who had misgivings about their neighbourhoods being 'taken over' by
Muslims, but refused to speak on camera for fear of being branded
Professor Cantle said political
correctness and race relations laws were partly to blame.
'I think it can become part of the
problem if it has the effect of limiting debate. Most of the legislation
we've got stems really from a position 40 years ago where we were very
concerned about the rise of the extreme right.
'We're now in a different position. I
think we actually need to loosen some of those ties so that we can have
a more mature debate. 'It will be painful, but the longer the process
will be, I think, a much better level of understanding.'
The laws against racial discrimination
were 'sound', he said, but those covering inciting racial or religious
hatred were preventing discussion.
It is an offence to use 'threatening
abusive or insulting words or behaviou' to stir up hatred against anyone
on grounds of colour, race, nationality or ethnic origin. New
legislation will shortly add religion to the list.
Professor Cantle said: 'I think there
is a perception at least that there is too much political correctness
and people feel unable to express their views.
THE FEEL THEY'RE ARE GOING TO BE
CONDEMNED AS RACIST.'
In the case of Blackburn, he said there
were signs racial segregation was
'probably getting worse'
-both in terms of residential ghettos

Professor Cantle was praised for his
report into the 2001 race riots which he warned white and Asian
communities were living
with little or no contact.
Panorama producer Stephen Scott said
the programme found residents felt unable to speak openly about their
unease over the way things were changing. 'They struggled to find a way
to say they didn't want

believed legislation struck the right balance between freedom of

Government policies over the last decade exacerbated an already
dangerous and volatile situation and literally they themselves lit the
fuse by their
policy without being selective in
ensuring ONLY those who were prepared to integrate would be welcomed
into our already overcrowded country.
The politicians over the past four
decades have ALL contributed to the unstabling conditions in many
of our towns and more especially our cities by ignoring what should have
been obvious from the beginning particularly with our country's
experience in India where Muslim and Hindu slaughtered each other and
the situation in that same country today is becoming even after almost
60 years racial outbreaks are on the rise.
It is so ironic that we have citizens
of Asian culture who have bridled us on being

the right nerve and illustrates our point.
