This ain’t a Jay Z, Kanye or “Watch the Throne” hate post. I’m listening to the album right now and it’s pretty good. But while we’re caught in the hype of 2 of Hip-Hop’s biggest stars coming together and all the #WTT tweets and reviews, it’s a lot more important stuff going on the world we need to be paying attention to, like:
Darcus Howe, a West Indian Writer and Broadcaster with a voice about the riots. Speaking about the mistreatment of youths by police leading to an up-roar and the ignorance of both police and the government.
Listening to the BBC’s ridiculous questions underscores the cause of Black frustration in London.
Darcus Howe, nephew to CLR James, member of the British Black Panther Party.
Doubts have emerged over whether Mark Duggan, whose death sparked the weekend’s Tottenham riots, was shot in an exchange of fire with police as fresh violence broke out in London.
