I have said in previous posts that I do understand why some people may have a problem with Tracey, because she does come across as being quite nonchalant (body language and tone of voice) when discussing her past. In this interview, you do get the feeling that she does miss her days causing havoc on the streets of Brixton with the Younger 28s and the notoriety that came with it.
Tracey seems to want to drive home the point that the Younger 28s were “serious guys” and not “moist” (soft). She speaks the truth, the Younger 28s were murderers, rapists, thieves and drug dealers.
“I believe that I’ve created a platform where a couple guy’s that I’ve mentioned in the book, they can step up and tell their own stories and do what I’m doing.”
We don’t need to be flooding the mainstream media with any more of these types of stories. When the media chooses to pick up on these types of stories it’s not because they want to “help”, they have their own agenda and that agenda does not benefit the black community. If the individuals mentioned in your book want to tell their story, then they should find a way to do that behind the scenes with little fanfare.
Younger 28 Beaver, who also plans to flog us a book on gang life says “the Younger 28s, we just opened up the door blud”. Yes Beaver you are right, you all did open up a door. A door that opened and led the next generation down a path towards death and destruction.Good luck with that book .
