A FEW QUICK NOTES ON THE BLACK AND POOR YOUTH REBELLION IN ENGLAND
These youth are of a forgotten generation.
They were born mostly in the 1980s and early 1990s.
They have increasingly little job and housing prospects, come from the poorest and most discriminated communities (mostly black and Asian)
They have seen no one of the older generations come to support them in any way, actually they feel, rightly to some extent, that they have been dumped on the scrap heap socially, and they are constantly admonished by their elders in their families, communities and society in general
They have seen guns and drugs swamping their community with no protection from the police, with many allegations that the police are complicit in this situation
This mass rebellion of the poor and black is historic, in as much this hasnt happened for over a generation.
Cameron talks about law and order and criminality, but just last night nato killed over 85 civilians in Libya including many children, who are the real criminals and who is really violating law and order?
If Cameron uses rubber bullets against the youth, the youth are largely armed with handguns and other semi automatic weapons, militarising the social riots will result in a very bloody mess.
