The black cultureWatch
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?
mix of african/british/carribean culture but predominantly carribean cuz they were here before the Africans

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