Historian David Starkey remained defiant last night after provoking a race storm by claiming the recent riots happened because too many young white people had ‘now become black’ The broadcaster was branded a racist yesterday after an appearance on Friday night’s Newsnight programme, when he blamed the riots on a ‘violent, destructive and nihilistic’ gang culture, which he said was being embraced by many white and black people He stunned his fellow guests on the BBC2 show, writer Owen Jones

One black man gets executed by the police. This man was known to have gangland links all over England. A riot ensues, then is used as an excuse for criminality.

What David Starkey said on newsnight is a completely valid and well made point.
The response it immediately had on the rest of the panel and presenter is of far more
concern to me, it shows that Political correctness has now become an institution in
this country and that real debate on very important issues is being stiffled and killed off.
Anyone brave enough to question the indoctrinated/hardwired thinking of this ultra lefist
regime is shouted down and branded racist ect ect, Starkey's career in the media is now
finished because he dared tackle a complicated issue by speaking plain truth, is this not
a form of fascism by any definition?

Really.. why is anyone surprised at what this guy said? You see right there what he just said? It just goes to show that even highly vaunted historians have no idea what they are talking about, black culture my ass. You know what, it's starting to get sickening just to prove my point that dark skinned folks.. including black folks are just like everyone else on this dirtball.
As for this person, he's just ignorant. And he obviously forms to the common stereotype that prevalent in here in America.. all black people are "gangsta" or wanna be gangsta (wanksta) and are therefore violent, emotional and destructive.
So, this guy has no idea that this "gangsta" theme is only show cased by the youngins in school and the obvious thugs. This guy has no black friends, because if he did they would have broke it down. That "gangsta" stereotype is only supported by the low earning, poverty stricken areas here in America. But you know, it's really not worth breaking it down because like i said.. it's getting tiring just to show that black folks are just like everyone else. And their are constant research, studies, sound bits etc just to show to the world that we aren't.
Oh boy, i'll add more later i think.
