The white slaves - migrants rape British girls for years, police fears accusations of racism

Summary of Disinformation

Migrants rape British underage girls for years. Police knows what is happening but doesn’t do anything due to fears of being accused of racism.

Disproof

The article does not provide evidence to the claims and is based on anonymous sources. The effect of the misleading message is strengthened with an image from a rape and revenge -film. It links to an article in the Independent that in fact reports that "Police believe they have exposed a new grooming gang in London as officers warn widespread abuse is taking place across the country. Four girls between the age of 13 and 15 have reported being raped by a group based around a McDonald’s in Stratford, triggering a crackdown that has so far identified at least 30 potential victims." There is no evidence that the police would be reluctant to take actions against the grooming gangs for fears of being accused of racism. According to reports, victims of the grooming gangs come from different ethnic backgrounds. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/sep/10/abuse-asian-girls-missed-white-victims

The issue has been widely discussed in the UK after a scandal of large-scale sex abuse of children came to light in Rotherham in 2012. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-28934963
