London Race Riots the Press Covered Up

The Economist Sep. 3, 2011 notes that:

Black people make up slightly less than 3 percent of the British population. But in the CCTV snaps of rioters that the police in London, Birmingham and Manchester have put on the internet, slightly more than half seem to be black. Many of the areas in which rioting took place, such as Tottenham, Hackney and Brixton, are largely black. In Scotland, Wales and north-east England, which have small black populations, there was no rioting...

Poverty can only be part of the explanation for this pattern. While blacks are, by and large, poorer than whites, Bangladeshis and Pakistanis are poorer still. There was no disorder in areas with large Asian populations, including in London.

65 percent of black Caribbean children in Britain grow up in a single-parent family; nine out of ten of those households are headed by women. Children brought up in one-parent families are more likely to take drugs, drop out of school and end up in prison...

What does the article conclude? Same old political correctness of discrimination and racism. Thus the rioters and criminals that looted and torched London and other cities are the real victims. There's not a shred of proof of racism - it's their culture and own self-inflicted failure.

Yet picture after picture from the Dailey Mail shows mainly black criminals robbing and stealing. That is what they do and that is why they are arrested in large numbers.

And their demographics are nearly identical with America. 69.4 percent of London's population is white and 10.7 percent black, London police arrested (Operation Withern) a total of 2,663 people during the riot. About two-thirds of the London rioters were non-whites. Of those 54.6 percent were black, 33.6 percent white, and 8 percent Asian mainly Muslims.

All of this started because a black gang banger named Mark Duggan opened fire on police wounding one officer and died in the exchange. The Left blamed all of this on cuts in welfare and social programs - nobody is buying it this time. Officials are finally dealing with the welfare crime class and holding them directly responsible for their action.

The Dailey Mail August 8, 2013 note that "Jonathan Mason, 37, joined a mob to burgle the HSBC branch in Lavender Hill, Battersea, south London, on August 8th, 2011. He was convicted of burglary and jailed for three years in 2012." And that welfare addled slime was "believed to be the first successful eviction carried out in relation to the riots."

Violent crime in general in the UK for 2011 finds that non-whites like in America account for most of the violent crime:

Rape and attempted rape - Total - 660 - Non-white total - 51.9 percent
Other sexual - Total - 1380 - Non-white total - 50.1 percent
Gun crime - Total - 791 - Non-white total - 67 percent
Knife crime - Total - 3430 - Non-white total - 65 percent
Personal robbery - Total - 6378 - Non-white total - 71 percent
Snatch - Total - 401 - Non-white total - 74 percent
Attempted personal robbery - Non-white total - 65 percent

Also in England like America most of the poor are white, so it isn't poverty that accounts for the tendency of particular non-white groups to engage in crime and violence. Until we begin to approach the problem from facts and not political correctness can we even begin to deal with the problem.
