Tony Blair yesterday claimed the spate of knife and gun murders in London was not being caused by poverty, but a distinctive black culture. His remarks angered community leaders, who accused him of ignorance and failing to provide support for black-led efforts to tackle the problem.
In England, they don't throw the racist word around like we do. The black community is upset that black crimes have been separated from other crimes. They want them lumped into, well ... crimes. Here in the states we like to keep them separated so black activists can get rich.
Blair also went after political correctness.
He said people had to drop their political correctness and recognise that the violence would not be stopped "by pretending it is not young black kids doing it".
No word yet on whether Sharpton and Jackson will leave Imus alone, and cross the pond to whip up some hate ... racist style.
