Would it be fair to characterise the situation like this? : Paeodophilia is a crime committed within all races and cultures, but the particular form that the crime takes often differs along cultural/societal lines. Institutional paedophilia (for example in the catholic church), or sex tourism (Garry Glitter types going to Thailand, etc) is primarily a white phenomena, whereas street-grooming gangs are primarily Asian. Furthermore, the make-up of the victims is shaped by the cultural and social situations that are existent at the time and place. So given that the pool of vulnerable women available to this grooming gang was mostly white, white girls were disproportionately victimised as a result. Similarly, if we take paedo-tourism, the crime can be seen as being relatively powerful white men taking advantage of vulnerable Asian women in their home country. I certainly believe that an understanding of the social and cultural dynamics is neccessary to tackle the problem, but a narrative needs to be formed in the mainstream that is balanced, non-divisive, and productive. If this narrative is not formed, then the far-right will take advantage of this issue to push their agenda. Also, I would like to say that explanation is not the same as justification. Explanation is a good thing as it can help resolve an ongoing situation; justification amounts to moral cowardice. Sticking our heads in the sand is also not an option.
