The white man's burden?

Has the Education Department really delayed publishing a report into "witch child" abuse amongst African children as they are more concerned about upsetting race-relations than preventing child cruelty?

I think it is almost as crude as white, liberal, middle-class people thinking they can’t be seen to be telling black people what they are doing wrong. It is ridiculous when you are dealing with children’s rights. - Richard Hoskins, visiting research fellow in the sociology of religion at King’s College London

The establishment is not slow to point the failings of ethnic groups in other countries (e.g. Roma child abduction/neglect in Bulgaria), but makes it clear that such honesty when referring to any non-white group in the UK will be roundly condemned.
