A disturbing racist video has emerged of three angelic-looking girls singing “if you all hate the p****s clap your hands” – while apparently being filmed by an adult.
The three blonde girls – aged between five and seven – are sitting in a circle clapping their hands while singing the hate chant – a favourite with the EDL.
A toddler boy wanders around the room while the little girls sing to the tune of the nursery rhyme ‘If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands’.
It appears as if the unidentified girls are being watched by an adult whose legs can be seen at the bottom of the clip.
The upsetting video – which is circulating online – is believed to have been filmed in the Manchester area because of their accents.
It has been slammed by anti-racism charities, who have blamed the parents for warping their children’s minds.
One appalled man who saw the footage online said: “It’s disgusting. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.
“Of course you can’t blame the girls – they’ve been taught this by people much older than them.
“It shows a whole new level of racism. How can we expect them to grow into tolerant and respectful adults, if they are being taught songs like this at such a young age?”
The 13 second clip is understood to have been filmed in a living room in the Manchester area sometime this year.
The three little girls sit in a smart-looking carpeted living room with a large leather couch and draping curtains and in the background.
It has been slammed by anti-racism educational charity Show Racism the Red Card, who use football to stamp out intolerance in the wider society.
A spokesman for the charity said: “The fact these young people are using such an offensive term so freely openly shows a lack of understanding about the nature of the term from their guardians.
“When it comes to the use of racist language, the intention isn’t always relevant.
“It is a word we know people find offensive irrespective of intention.
“We believe education is key to tackling racism in society.
“The fact young people are using this word doesn’t come as a surprise given a study from Show Racism the Red Card Wales found a quarter of people believe calling a Pakistani person a paki was acceptable.”
Charity Stand Against Racism and Inequality (SARI) said the video “fostered hatred and fuelled divide” and the children had been “manipulated” by adults.
Interim director Alex Raikes MBE said: “Social media can be a tool that tackles inequalities and promotes human rights, tolerance and respect or as in this case can foster hatred and fuel divide.
“Aside from this potentially breaching the law by inciting racial hatred, what is particularly upsetting about this film is the abuse of young minds – children are not born racist – they are taught.
“Here we see this in action. This is a form of child exploitation.
“These children have been manipulated by adults who have taken advantage of their innocence and then disseminated them on film to the wider public – have they had a say in this?
“This can label them in the longer term.
“Children are like mirrors and they reflect the culture in which they live and are captive to their parents’ viewpoints.
“In a week where we have seen events that show both the value we all place on freedom of speech, and at the same time how people can be indoctrinated and manipulated to perpetrate atrocities – here we may believe this is simply freedom of expression albeit unpalatable to many – but actually this is nothing short evidence of indoctrination on film.
“Moreover, whose freedom of speech is this? These children had no say in this.
“For SARI, films like can be also very distressing to the members of our community that these children have unwittingly maligned.”
The clip – which is being circulated via Twitter and Whatsapp – has provoked an angry response online.
