Voice of The Sunday Mirror: The race louts demean us all.

THE experience of Saira Khan reveals the shameful truth about racism lurking beneath the surface of our multi-cultural society.

The undercover TV reporter posed as a shopkeeper for 12 weeks.

And the treatment meted out by racist thugs was both shocking and terrifying.

Spat on, threatened with being shot and taunted with racist abuse, Saira's ordeal exposed a wider problem that rarely comes to light.

Every day thousands of small shop owners face gratuitous abuse and violence from loutish customers.

All just to earn a living selling us the occasional loaf or a packet of butter. Most put up with it and stoically press on. But many give up.

What a sad reflection on society that running a corner shop has become a dangerous job.
