London Most Senior Black Police Officer?

Courts Correspondent PaulCheston of the evening standard today wrote a article published on the frontpage of the London Evening Standard. The first line of article read “London’smost senior black police man was today convicted of misconduct and trying topervert the course of justice.” Intrigued by the headline and having readenough of the article my eyes scanned the front page for firstly the image andsecondly for the words.. article continued on page three. Low and behold theimage on the front page was a white man of Iraqi ethnic origin.  I had to do a double take because Ithought that the image was relating to a separate article. Am I the only onewho found this both ignorant and offensive?
