Post 1: Response to Darcus Howe BBC Interview- London Riots

It is very clear by listening to Darcus Howe speaking to this reporter that he is utterly fed up with what is going on in this country regarding stereotyping and for good reason. People are being stopped and frisked on the street solely because of the color of their skin. I think this is a clear example of what is wrong with this world. To assume someone is a criminal because of what color they are is not only ignorant but completely wrong. Color has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you are more prone to commit a crime or be a bad person. I agree completely with Howe in that I do not condone riots which involve violence and force. However I do believe that there comes a time when something needs to be done in order to make a statement and stand up for what you believe in. These people that are being targeted for no reason felt it was time for them to revolt and hopefully put a stop to this wrongful treatment.
