Man injured after ignited accelerant thrown in Walsall shop
A man, described as white, 6ft tall and wearing a blue jacket, went into the store and threw the bottle at a member of staff inside the premises. The bottle struck the man causing bruising, some fire damage was caused to the shop after the bottle ignited.
Chief Constable David Thompson said reports of hate crime were being "carefully monitored", adding it is "no surprise people are feeling insecure" following a referendum debate "that has had a forceful debate on immigration, our relationship with Europe and national identity".
"We must offer strength and friendship for those feeling vulnerable and show intolerance to hateful behaviour in our communities," he said.

Of course we all know "hate crime" means it was a white guy.

Brecht has set race relations in the uk back by 20 years. I guess this is why we have parliamentary democracy rather than mob rule? you have your country back, but just not the hope the brexiteeers are happy with the Frankenstein monster they have created with their misplaced jingois. The perfect home for those sunburnt beer bellied England fans to continue their abuse of racial minorities, now they're back from trance. After their ambassadorship is no longer required
Yes I'm a massive racist a traitor some might like to call me. You know the type. Not much pride in my nation at the moment to be honest. Probably need some more immigrants to help put this nation back together in working order

I get what your saying but why would the media assume more racial discord? Why would far right loonies feel they can get away with crap they couldn't before? Have the laws of the land suddenly changed over night or what?
The Jo Cox murder was carried out before the vote so can't be related, yeah there are nutters on the far right, but I think the media will find that to be the case with all extremists, whatever their twisted belief system. As they are after all, always banging on about the extremists!
How do you propose we stop the media from whipping up a storm? Personally I try to point out to others the propaganda where I see it. But I can't stop them from publishing it in the first place...
