Popularity of Indian-bashing continues to grow

The Age reports on the "unprovoked bashing" of an Indian man assaulted by a gang of young Australian thugs, the attack continuing despite the intervention of onlookers. Bashing? As in struck a savage blow to the head with a cricket bat? Or perhaps knocked to the ground and then kicked and stomped as his attackers taunted "curry-munching c**t". Is this poor fellow in intensive care in a coma? Nope, his turban was removed and he was struck to the head but his injuries did not require medical attention.

Such an attack, racially motivated or not, is obviously inexcusable. But so is sensationalist reporting of a minor incident.
