Disenfranchisement.

Did you know that Asians are disenfranchised in the United Kingdom? No nor did I, but the New York Times helpfully tells this to US readers:
In July 2005, four suicide bombers killed 52 people on London’s transit system, and another set of attacks failed two weeks later, bringing home to Britain fears of homegrown terrorist attacks among its disenfranchised South Asian population. Witnesses said the two men in the Glasgow attack were South Asian.

I'm disenfranchised but I wasn't Asian last time I looked.

How so? I doubt that you are under 18, foreign, in prison or in the House of Lords so I'm confused.

how did we disenfranchise them?

i also wasnt aware that your average racist Brit was able to discriminate between Muslims, Sikhs and Hindhus.

Does the NY Times still print garbage such as this?
