Another Unfortunate Headline (and one of the more potentially racist ones out there)

Europe's refugee crisisI looked down on the BBC app on my phone and this headline loomed out at me:

Clearing the rubbish at migrant camp

I know what they meant – the accompanying picture (not the one displayed here) was worth more the headline words put together – but, lord, this one comes off a rather scandalously at first glance, particularly in light of some of the nationalistic comments that are starting to swirl through Europe.

Just brings the point home that we need to be careful how we phrase things in the public eye.
