Most race attack victims `are white': The Eastender
Monday 08 February 1999
I lost some money, a purse, an umbrella and a rail ticket. If I had been an Asian woman of my age I don't think they would have done it.
There is quite a lot of racial tension around here. I'm not a racist and I know white boys also do bad things but most of the things [attacks] you read about in the East London Advertiser every week seem to be by black people and Asians. I heard the same thing happened to an older lady who broke her collar bone. If I see a few boys around I get a bit nervous. I wear a coat with pockets now to carry things in."
Mrs Woolf added: "It really shook me up. I was lucky I wasn't hurt but it still took me a long time to get over it. Even the other day there was an Asian boy in front of me who kept turning around and looking at me. I wondered if he was waiting for me so he could take my bag."
