    Indeed it does not matter, I just find it hilarious how so many people jump on the fact you mention ethnicity these days. OMG YOU SAID BLACK. Yeah...They were black!!

    I actually seem to think you are more likely to describe someones skin colour if its different to your own. I believe a black person for instance is more likely to describe a group of all whites as exactly that.

    Its not really prejudice, just a strange way we separate groups in general chatter

    It becomes racist when you ascribe that behaviour to the fact that they are black as some posters have done or alluded to in this thread. As a matter of identification saying you were mugged by a man who was black is not racist.....however saying you were mugged by a man because he was black is.....

    The Police will actually ask you the colour of an assailant as a matter of course along with any number of identifying factors......Someone tried to steal my sons bike as he riding home from school last month, whn we reported it he gave a description of the person and the interviewing officer asked whether the person was white, for example.

    Well yeah but when you have people out to do anything to commit crime and murder and not get caught, things go wrong, its not like he was an innocent person, the black community support these criminals, they hide them, hide guns, it could be stopped ove night if everyone in the black community shopped them in, its like some sort of brotherhood, dont involve the police just shoot or stab each other instead.

    That is also true of many, if not all Estates, where the gangs, whatever etnicity they are, are accepted instead of reported.....partially this is through fear of retribution and partially through mistrust of the Police or their ability to effectively combat the problem.

    It is not unique to the so called 'black community' whatever that is.

    I can see why they may have struggled to prosecute them, so a not guilty verdict for planned murder, but surely it was more than an 'accident' given the trouble going on.

    Anyone know what the deal is with the BBC having a documentary on the riots banned? I saw a news article about it on some foreign news channel while I was in the gym. The government isn't allowing them to show it and they intend to challenge them in court over it. I wonder whether its due to showing the country up just before the Olympics?

    I believe so. I also believe someone from Whitehall urged the BBC to downplay events during the early stages of the riots. There was absolutely no reporting from the BBC on the first night. We had to rely on social media and some random London radio station for news. They aren't that inept.

    well if it stays wet and generally coolish i cant see it happening again. but if we get a couple of weeks of high temps again i wouldn't be surprised if a few idiots tried to start something. especially if its during the olympics with the security issues.
