Being a Historian, David Starkey should not be voicing his opinion over the England riots, as a Historian he should be presenting all the facts of the events. David Starkey thinks being a well-respected English Historian his words stand out. In the video he stated the “facts” of the riot started from a “Black protesting over the killing of a Black man.” As you notice he did not mentioned that the protesters were protesting the killing of a Black man by the police. David Starkey blames riot from the “destructive, nihilistic gangster culture” from the blacks and these black cultures alienated the white youths in England. When Owen Jones author of the book Chavs, as he tried to explained the continued stereotyping and outright discrimination faced by the young blacks in these poor neighborhood by the police, and the lacks of employments and educations ; David Starkey constantly interrupted and brush off the explanations. David Starkey was not convinced that the lacks of government support for the poor in the neighborhood has any to do with the rioting. He mentioned in the video that not one public building was burn by the rioters and that leaded him to think it has nothing to do with the government; of course again, he did not mention that riot polices were deployed protecting the buildings. The protesters were repelled by the police as they tried. David Starkey already tarnished his reputation as a Historian; he did not investigates and get all the facts. I think he will be surprise that the burning of the police car that started the riot was set off by a fellow white Anglo-Saxon.
