There’s a photo accompanying mainstream news accounts of the riots (saw it at Guardian and Spiegel) of a lone young White man carrying a small can, wearing a kerchief, and walking past a burning car. The can could be a beverage, and the kerchief could be for making breathing easier, and I find that likely if he is indeed ethnically British, but the intended message to the average reader seemed to be that he was a White Briton carrying some type of fuel and shielding his identity. That coupled with the lack of any mention of race in the articles would leave a naive reader to think young White Britons are rioting across London and the UK.
