Air China, a tOP Chinese airline, has sparked a race row after its in-flight magazine warned travellers to London to dodge the city’s ‘ethnic minority’ areas. The shocking article in the latest edition of Wings of China – distributed on Air China – has today been branded ‘racist‘, ‘outrageous’ and ‘insulting’.  The article, printed in both English and Chinese, said: 'London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people. Can the statement made by the Chinese airline be racist? Or simply a warning to alert the tourists?

There is some truth in it yes, but they didn't need to single out the Indians, Pakistanis or blacks...
Young hoodlum gangs patrol many ethnic areas and stabbings have been on the increase...
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
