BLACKENING THE BLACKS…?

By ATWadmin On November 7th, 2006

Let’s be clear at the start of this that many individuals from Britain’s black population have made tremendous contributions to our society across a wide range of disciplines and many are looked up to as role models. 


So I was very surprised to hear a so-called spokeman for the “Black community” on Radio 5 this morning claiming that unemployment amongst the black population has never stopped rising, that the drug culture which infests some black areas is the direct consequence of (White)celebrities, models, popstars etc seeking recreational drugs from dealers within these areas, and that many young black people are attracted to drug dealing when they see the affluent lifestyles afforded to those who deal in this illicit trade.


I’m sorry, but this is almost complete denial of reality. Of course some of those with money will seek out their recreational drugs from wherever they can get it. The best way of dealing with that is by a tough crackdown on both dealers and those who buy from them however. But surely it is patronising beyond belief to suggest that black people just can’t find employment at a time when Government tells us we need to have hundreds of thousands of immigrants coming into this country to meet employment needs and have no moral compass to direct them away from the sheer evil of drugs.


And when we’re at it – what are these “spokesmen” for the black community doing to highlight the evil of drug dealers in their “own” community?


This guy was pleading victimhood. He was patronising British black people – but because he himself is black, and because the BBC desperately wants to belief in institutional racism – he got a sympathetic ear. He didn’t deserve it.

  1. Correct, DV.
    But next week another "spokesman," who has been nominated by…himself, will claim it is outragous that the Met stop and search any black yoof because it is "proven" that black yoof are no more likely to be criminals that white yoof.

    Cue meltdown as BBC try to support both views at same time.

  2. Bit of a chicken and egg bind this. Isn’t it remarkably close to the assertion that the Latin American drug trade is fuelled by demand by rich (and mostly white) Americans?

  4. Hmm. I had to post again from memory. Seemed like the first didn’t take.

  5. I’ve lived in Brixton and surrounding areas for about five years.
    I didn’t know any white people who would go to brixton in search of the drugs he mentioned. They would be too scared of being ripped off, beaton up etc. I’m not saying it doesn’t happen, but I doubt it could be a large scale issue.

    I do sometimes think the black community could do with a bit more self-analysis of its problems. (Its not the only community like this).
