What would you describe as being associated with Black British culture?
Please share your honest opinion. All answers will be respected.(But still debated )
Before you post, please consider these questions:

Do you generally associate the Black British culture, in this country, with rap, hip hop and sport?
Do you think your opinion is influenced by the media(e.g BBC News)
Depending on where you live, are the Black British people you know perfect examples of the stereotypes the media represent?

There's no such thing. It's urban working class culture that just happens to be wrongly attributed to all black people. The practice of labelling things as 'black culture' has created a self-fulfilling prophecy by which working class black youth buy into it, and perpetuate these practices. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with poverty, social exclusion, and lack of educational opportunities.

What lack of educational opportunities?
I'm British Black and I feel have an equal opportunity to those who are of the same social class as I am.

Probably rap but I'd say that's thanks to the fact most rappers I listen to are in fact, black.

The sort of black people that adhere to this notion of black culture are generally under-educated working class. The rest of us know it's bull****. I should have said lack of good education.

Outspoken, money fast, academics purely for pursuing high earning careers, strong focus on designer labels, superficial, mall culture, emphasis on physical fitness, beats rather than guitars, tribalism above common decency, heavy use of empty rhetoric....

Being white is great, i'm not saying its better. You can't deny its pretty great. We whites all prosper from white privilage. We should'nt feel guilty about it. We should recognize it though.

I think blacks do have it harder, not to say the good ones won't/can't succeed, but the bad ones are kinda trapped in a cycle of destructive behaviour and negative self perception.

There is no such thing as "Black British" culture unless you proceed with the notion of stereotyping. However, a unified black British culture does not really exist, unlike African Americans.
