Why is it the trouble is happening in the big citys in england wich all have large black communitys????
Why isnt their any trouble in citys in scotland, wales, ireland????
Dude, you said 95 per cent of people who were responsible for these were black, now tell me that isn't wild exaggeration when you can clearly see from the footage shown that there were also a comparable white, asian and other minority delinquent populations participating.
This is without taking into account that these riots occurred in deprived areas where there are ethnically diverse populations, so of course the proportion of blacks being involved will increase because most of them reside in working class towns and boroughs. Ditto Brum, Bristol and Manchester.
As has been said before, this is a class issue rather than a race problem, the people out there are from predominantly working class areas, which by no means justifies what has happened but understanding and solving the social issues relating to these riots can go a long way in preventing something like this ever happening again.
