No place for race hate thugs in Glasgow

LIKE most large cities, ­Glasgow's history is one of wave after wave of immigration, whether from within Scotland and the UK or from countries abroad.

The city takes pride in the welcome it has afforded to people this century, whether they are refugees from places torn apart by war, or people coming from the other European Union countries to build a better life for their families.

Sadly, we have seen and heard of many unacceptable racist attacks on people in our city streets, whether it is the violent attack on the busker seen on television, or MSP Humza Yousaf verbally abused while selling the Big Issue for a day.

In a few months, we will see people from all around the world coming to the city and, for the vast majority of citizens, they will be welcomed regardless of their race, religion or skin colour.

The same can be said of the people who come here to build a new life for whatever reason, Glasgow is a welcoming city.

The drive to eradicate racism cannot be left to the police and we can all help stamp it out by reporting incidents and standing up for what is right.

Before, during and in the years after the Commonwealth Games, there is no place for racism in Glasgow.
