Dotun Adebayo asks are young black men disproportionately involved in nightclub violence? Guests include Mr. Play, DJ Spoony and Sara Myers.
Last night’s discussion is in response to Afia Asha’s controversial Facebook post that blamed young black men for the violence in south London nightclubs.
Afia who is the bar managing director for the Brixton Fridge Bar wrote:
“Unless and until young black people (18-35) learn to conduct themselves in a civil manner then the night time economy will be closed or severely restricted to you.”
“The minority know that they have the support of the majority who fail to call them out when their behaviour becomes awful,”.
“Chris Rock said in a comedy skit that there is a difference between ‘black people and niggas’. There is, but it seems that the decent black people of whom there are many are losing the fight.”
Afia later clarified her views in a toned down article published on The Voice website (Click here to read).
The minority of young black men who turn up to nightclubs to start fights are just low life idiots. But I often think that mental health issues and the mix of drugs/alcohol also plays a part in the destructive behaviour.
Anyway your thoughts please….
