Is it cuz he is black?

Like the Express, the Star also has the same, intrusive Tesco ad on the front page. Richard Desmond must be coining it in.

But the story (and for once, they appear to have accurately reported what has been said elsewhere) is framed in a strange way. After all, would the headline have ever been written as 'White Prem ace held in 'race abuse' attack' if the attacker was white? The answer, of course, is no.

So why is do they feel it relevant to highlight that the attacker was 'black' here?
