Whites have become Black ...WTF?



First let me say:

  • If the recent riot in the city of London was happening in Jamaica I wonder what the headlines in the British media would be. They would highlight all manner of things, how we are poverty stricken, corrupt, drug and gang infested, a third world hellhole with no future.  The British Government would issue a travel Advisory telling its citizens to stay away from all of Jamaica even if the riot was in one small section of the Capital.
     
  • If the recent riot in the city of London was happening Jamaica I wonder what the Jamaicans living overseas would say on the various messaging boards. They would declare how a shamed and disgusted they were,   not wanting anyone to know they were Jamaican, they would make it seem like a riot like that would never happen in the country they now call home and that Jamaica was a failed state and would be better off either under British rule or as a state of America, sometimes Jamaicans are Jamaica’s worst enemy. 
     
  •  If the shooting of an unarm man by the police occurred in Jamaica you would hear how corrupt our police force is because they carry out summary justice killings with no regard for life but when Jean Charles de Menezes was shot in the face or Mark Duggan shot in the back of a cab the British media tried very hard to spin the story even in the face of mounting evidence against the police version of the events. In fact since 1998 a total of 333 people have died in the UK while in police custody, but no officer has ever been successfully prosecuted.
Whatever I write here hold true for almost every society because I think we are suffering from some of the same problems, no country is immune to riots, violence and corruption. So we could easily swap out then name Britain and use Jamaica or the United States who have seen its fair share of riots over the years.


I will agree 100% that the rioters are, illiterate, no good troglodytes’ thieves and animals out to get their hands on flat screen TV, trainers, phones or anything else they can fine. I will agree that the riot was more about stealing and destruction, that it was mindless, without cause and if name calling helps, then I would gladly come up with a couple more but no amount of name calling will solve this problem.  These rioters, these troglodytes are a the product of a Failing British Society, these rioters were born, bred, educated and socialized in the United Kingdom of Great Britain, whatever they are, however you want to describe them or their actions you must accept the fact that they are product of their society, a society that failed to instill the proper values in them.  How can anyone in their right mind set a building on fire knowing that inside there may be man, woman and children, small babies who could burn to death? There was nothing progressive about the riots, it was a temper tantrum. 

It is my perception that most people in the UK are not looking at the riots as a sign of a deeper societal problem which requires further analysis and solution. People are not looking at the fact that society have somehow failed these young people. It is much easier to pretend that the British society is perfect and the people carrying out the riots are not seeds of Britain but suffer from a genetic disorder carried like a plague on the Empire Windrush.  It is amazing how people’s opinion differ when most of those doing the rioting are not white. And when white join the riots then the British media declares that whites have become the new black. As per that racist historian David Starkey.

The Daily Whine (Mail) immediately worked itself up into a frenzy becoming an extension of the BNP and EDL as it tries to start its own brand of race riot. As they declare look what these brown, mud coloured people are doing to Her Majesty’s perfect country. The British it seems are professional scapegoat artist they see everything that is wrong with the United Kingdom of Great Britain to be the fault of Immigrants and British born minorities.

Right wing Britain do not like to take responsibility for anything bad, they are professionals at passing the blame to some other group or entity. Britain is not only broken but a divided society with an open sore for the entire world to see and I am very disappointed about that because I expect better as Britain is my second favorite place on the planet. All I am hearing is “us against them, their community, my community, it is always someone else’s fault, its social media, its Blackberry, it’s the afro-Caribbean fault, it’s the Jamaicans fault, it’s the increasing influence of the black American culture”, everywhere it seems, there is a conspiracy by all to destroy Her Majesty’s perfect Britain. What I would like to know is when will the British Government and its people, all of its people take responsibility for its own failures.

The British must believe Jamaica to be the most powerful country on the face of this planet and that no amount of education and proper socialization of their young people can protect them from our most awesome powers, to bend the world to our will. If only that was true then we could use that power to better Jamaica instead of wasting it on Bad Breed British Pickney. 

Whenever you attempt to analyze the problem, to get to root of the matter in order to come up with a constructive, objective solution you get accuse of being a liberal. Because these so called hard-noses beat them with stick types believe that the solution is to beat down anyone and anything who dares to step out of line, no analysis required. Most people do not behave like this, so SOD the rest just shoot them where they stand and before you know it you have a well armed underclass void of conscience beating down your door and setting your family on fire. The law is the law and dysfunctional people who break it must be punished with that I agree. No one is saying not to uphold the law what we are saying is that you cannot expect the poor and ignorant to continue to suffer in silent and out of sight, your world is perfect so long as you don’t see or hear them. It is the responsibility of everyone in society to try to fix the problems we face and so upholding the law is only one part of the solution putting in place preventative measures and finding long term solutions to alleviate poverty, suffering and ignorance (a lethal combination) will secure the future of any country.

  • Britain has one of the highest violent crime rates in the EU. Roughly 18 per cent of youths between 16 and 24 are jobless and nearly half of all black youths are out of work with a total of 2.49 million people out of work.
  •  There's income inequality, extremely high levels of unemployment between 16 and 24-year-olds and huge parts of this population not in education or training.
  • In 2008, there were more than 1 million reported cases of violent crimes in England and Wales alone. By comparison, there were 331,778 reported incidents in France and some 210,885 incidents in Germany. Violent crime carried out by children and teenagers is also among the highest in Europe.
  • The UK has the highest teenage birth rates in Western Europe - twice as high as in Germany, three times as high as in France and six times as high as in the Netherlands. So now we have the young rising the very young and I wonder where will they get good values from?
  • In the UK young people aged 16-24 years are most at risk of being diagnosed with an STD
  • Britain is the binge-drinking capitol of Europe - The prevalence of binge drinking in the UK and Ireland compared with other European countries is also evident when looking at the proportion of 15-16 year old who report binge drinking. 
 "I wonder where is Ian Thomson (author of Dead Yard) to document all of the above... he would probably blame it all on us Jamaicans anyway..."

Article on Drunken Broken Britain 


What can we say about a society that cultivate, socialize create people with such destructive criminal mindset, clearly one must realize that a problem exist and must be tackled. Young people live what they learn, it is the British society that created that mindset and that mindset is not unique to the UK almost every country including Jamaica and the United States of America suffer from the same problem and need to find a solution. This riot is not unique as a quick research on demonstrations in Britain will show that they do have a tendency to quickly turn into mindless destructive riots, from students to BNP/EDL, to football hooliganism, to G20.  

The people who were rioting in London are not all immigrants, most are British citizens, some may be descendants of immigrants but they are British. If the Government of Great Britain allows people from others countries into the UK then it is the responsibility of that government and its people to treat these people as equals. By not doing this the British is in a sense, “cutting off their nose to spite their face”, as once immigrants are already in your country and have been for way over a century then they cannot and should not be called immigrants anymore and it is in everyone’s best interest to make sure that they are treated fairly and become Good, Valued Citizens who will join mainstream society and contribute to the greater good. These British citizens must be accepted as equals they must be given equal opportunity with equal access to everything Britain have to offer, to do otherwise would be inhumane and would condemn British society to a never ending struggle of inequality and crime.


The rioting in England represented the worst case of policing that I have ever seen, the police was totally worthless on the night. What the hell kind of tactics was that, stand and watch, no taking charge. A far cry from how the English use to put down riots in the colonies, a volley of shots from kneeling and standing position: Riots Here: Send Help At Once: April 5, 1902 Riots, Montego Bay Jamaica 

The very idea that, if white Anglo Saxons British citizens treated the non-white British citizens as outcast, that if treated badly for a prolong period of time, prevented from getting a proper education, prevented from getting proper employment, excluded from mainstream society without the means to support themselves. That these none-white British citizens will pack their belongings and go back to a country they never came from and know nothing about, is flawed and mistaken. This line of action will only serve to create a subclass, a sub society which will separate themselves from mainstream society and find alternate means of supporting themselves, whether it is by honest or dishonest means. It has been proven over and over again that people who are rejected by mainstream society do not pack up and leave their homes, especially when they have no place to go and nowhere else to call home but will  turn to all forms of anti-social behavior to make ends meet.   

It seems no matter how long a person has lived in the United Kingdom no matter how many generations have passed that some Anglo Saxons and media outlet will not consider their non-white fellow citizens as British or English. Imagine living in a country for over a century and still being called an immigrant, still being asked which country you came from and still being told to go back to where you came from. I sympathize for these British citizens who was born in Britain, grow up in Britain, educated and socialized in Britain, all they know and ever know is Britain and still being told over and over that they do not belong to their birth country and they are forced to listen to rubbish like “that just because a dog was born in a barn does not make it a horse”… the psychological toll this must have on young minds is unimaginable.


Whenever I meet some British minorities I find it very strange that they seem compelled to emphasize almost immediately the fact that they are British, as if they are trying to convince me or themselves, even thou I never considered them to be anything else but now I understand why. It’s simply because of the society they live in, a society that continue to push them away, to tell them they do not belong but these people want very much to belong, to be English, to be British and to play their part in building their country. How can you continue to tell people to go back to where they come from when all they know is the United Kingdom of Great Britain?

By 2020 the mixed race population is expected to become Britain's largest ethnic minority group with the highest growth rate.
Fact-> the United Kingdom of Great Britain is a multi-racial society, a destiny you created for yourself the day your ancestors decided to jump on ships loot, rape, pillage and enslave other countries and assume dominion over them. After centuries of convincing people that you were the greatest thing since slice bread, and that everyone should bow to your will and accept you as lord and master over them.

Fact-> the non-white population living in the United Kingdom IS NOT going anywhere so you will continue to be a multi-racial society and as such it’s best to embrace it and let it work for you, celebrate your diversity.



Now as far as I am concern Britain is still one of the best countries on this planet, my second love and will continue to be for a very long time and if the riots had happen in any other country except Jamaica I would not have written this but sometimes you must confront the people you love. I write about Jamaica because I love my country and I write about Britain for the very same reason regardless of our pass and especially because of our pass. So here is hoping that we both find solutions to our problem and we continue to work together for the betterment of both our people. 






G20 Riot

Student Riot


***John Cleese Update: September 2nd 2011 ***

British actor John “I hate foreigners” Cleese declared that London is no longer an English city and that it is very hard to find an English person in London.What John “I hate foreigners” Cleese  is really saying is that, there is a lot of non-white people living in London and since us white Anglo-Saxon do not consider people who are not white to be English then London is no longer an English city. I so feel it for non-white British citizens because it does not matter that they consider themselves to be  British or English to the core they are still not accepted by their fellow white British and English citizens and are still considered as foreigners. But I must say that what is important is not what these people think of you but what you think of yourselves, be proud of who you are, be proud of and embrace your “Britishness/Englishness” and do not let them define you. 

I met a nationalistic English guy at a pub in the east village where everyone watches football, he declared that he had to leave England because it was filled with foreigners, it was amazing that this white Anglo-Saxon English man left England because of foreigners and moved to a state, borough and a country filled with Foreigners, to be a foreigner himself and lived in Bed-Sty Brooklyn, a West Indian and Jewish enclave while talking to a black Jamaican in an English/Irish Pub in New York City, I was at a lost because he was saying one thing and doing another, apart from that he was a very nice bloke.

A documentary I watched regarding the recent British invasion of Europe, their lack of assimilation and the French resistance to the British taking over and transforming entire villages into “little Britain”, moving the native French population aside.  The English love to say “when in Rome do as the Romans do” but they never practice what they preach, historically and today, when the British come to town they Bring Britain with them, right down to the Union Jack shorts, fish and chips and sardines on toast, they assimilate as much as the next foreigner, in New York for example there is a little Britain in the west village, British pubs, British Meet up Groups everywhere, British culture and lifestyle spreading like wildfire, it seems like every second person you meet in NYC is British. 

Diversity is wonderful, diversity in Jamaica is a welcome change, the chance to experience other culture and food while not leaving your country is great.  


Below is link I found regarding the British in New York:

  1. EXCELLENT post and I mean EXCELLENT. Necessarily challenging to the core, and such confronting observations and the investment of such a candid and uncomfortable analysis can only come from love. I feel you on this one because I am an African expatriate (Sierra Leone), a Jamaican expatriate, and a Brit-o-phile from much time spent there in my childhood and adulthood, and now struggling with all these very issues while assimilating as a 'minority' in the US. It's hard to throw stones at the beloved kingdom and queen, but throw we must. The world is so enamored and seduced by the customs of this Empire, that as you rightly observe, we dare not criticize it. But my God must we ever, and yes again as you rightly put it, THEY started this conversation imperially for centuries, and claim to have ended the separatist point of view with abolition laws...only to be running their country this way now. Tsk. This all said - in your second bullet point in your opening argument, I must disagree - at least for myself, with a perhaps naive defense of other yardies. The impulsion of most I think is to defend the image of our nation, rather than to distance ourselves from it in shame. I personally do no tolerate any lazy conclusions about our nation, ESPECIALLY when under the spotlight of biased press.

    I'm sorry to be so lazy in doing this, but I am compelled at least to share with you two comments I posted on FB (in StooshPR) during these riots that I somehow feel you may appreciate. They're a bit emotional - but are also appropriate responses to your most important findings above methinks - with regards to the UK, but also addressing the disconnect of the 'haves' and 'have nots' which I think is creating a tsunami of riots the world over.

    REPOST of my comment StooshPR: "Relevant to these riots, but more broadly methinks to the world over, the bottom line is, contrary to 40 years ago, the divisions of wealth and how that affects rights and distributions of basic services and commodities has become so OBVIOUSLY wide. The underclasses - irrespective of their outer representations in race, culture, nation, religion, etc et al - are slapped up against a clear screen of vulgar wealth. Once upon a time, what created the separation was not so obvious; NOW, we KNOW why we pay $3 for a bottle of water for example (vs once upon a time not having to bottle, or buy bottled water AT ALL!!) , it's to line the pockets of the wealthy who could give a toss about who suffers for their profit. Look at the wave of riots worldwide? Look at the crap our President here just dealt/is dealing with?!! The division is now vulgar. And the underclasses KNOW it. And all there is to see is RED. It's a wave that's been swelling, and is redefining at this very moment what activism will look like - and it's unfortunately near past open dialogue; it's emotional; and it clearly ain't gonna be pretty. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh."

    2nd REPOST: "The whole thing just pisses me off. politics and big biz corporations have pulled a fleetwood mac on the world - they're so comfy in bed together, and left everyone else not only out of the bedroom, but out the gate of the yard!! When you have an overpopulated world and a real (check the numbers with UNFPA and others) food shortage - you got a planet ready to go nuts for food and water!! How stupid can these corps be?? you can't control a mob fight for food and water - esp when 'building down' to this point, the people at large were left OUT of the conversation in the first place! They're not ready to talk therefore, they're ready to burn, pillage, and loot back - as they were..."

    Thanks again for an amazing, provocative, and most necessary post. Bless up.

  2. One more thing - my Jamaican friend - feminist, musicologist, psychologist, Richard Wright, currently based in Oakland, CA, flew to the UK for the first time in his life, days before the riots. We met beforehand in NYC, and like a faithful Brit-o-phile, I sang the praises of her majesty's country, squealing with excitement that he was finally going to stay in my beloved city of London. Where was he going to stay...Hackney. 2 days after arrival...riots. This was his introduction - and he happened to be interviewed on the Italian press for this - please do watch. Most interesting note - was not a single British press source was on the streets to dialogue with the very people whose voices need to be heard:
