Daily Echo: Woman victim of racist abuse while hse helps wheelchair user Woman victim of racist abuse while hse helps wheelchair user

POLICE are hunting two women who racially abused another woman near a Hampshire park.

The victim, a black woman in her 30s from Southampton, was pushing a disabled woman in a wheelchair at the time.

As they left the park two white women, said to be aged in their 40s, prevented them from passing.

They then made racist comments to the victim, which caused her great alarm and distress.

The attack happened close to the entrance of a park on Bridgemary Avenue opposite Bedenham Primary School, in Gosport as the victim was heading in the direction of Gregson Avenue.

One of the suspects had a bicycle and the other woman was carrying two white plastic carrier bags.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information on the identity of the suspects in the incident, which happened on June 28 between 11.30am and 11.50am, to come forward.

Call Gosport Police on 101 or information can be given anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Sadly this sort of thing is to be expected when the bulk of the public are fed the bulldust that most people on benefits, and sick and disabled people in particular are nothing but benefit scrounging scum. A nation gets the population it deserves. They are led by example and with this particular government this is just what they are after

You might want to look up the origins of the word cretin.

Not everyone will agree with me but I don't believe it was intentionally racist, my opinion is that the woman just happened to be black and they would of been vile to any vulnerable person at that point. What they did is disgusting and unforgivable, the skin colour does not make it any worse. We live in a multi-cultural country and there are only a minority who hate on people due to their skin colour these days.
