    The BBC's Local News have an article. Sounds pretty low-scale.

    I'm not saying mainly made up of. If you read what I said, I said could. Even if it is highly unlikely it could still be a lot of uni students.
    yeah i was clearly generalising, like what i put. You have to generalise when talking about 1000's or 100,000's of people. Talking about what happens on uni campus isn't representive of all people. Particularly since uni students make-up very few racists that will be fighting in the street.

    everyone in birm hates each other.

    blacks and muslims hate each other the most.

    whites and blacks aren't too bad, whites hate muslims more.

    blacks and whites don't particularly like each other though.

    The midlands is pretty damn racist.

    All this riot will do is cause constant retaliation.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why would ANYONE disagree with a protest against "Islamic fundamentalism"? As the BBC calls it. Especially anti-fascists, I think, like usual, the anti-fascists, are a bit confused :p:

    This is exactly what i meant when i said the youth were to blame for today. No one in their right mind would disagree with protesting against Islamic Fundamentalism. But all the little Muslim teenagers got on their high horse and took it as an anti-islamic protest. Just an excuse for a barny. That's alls it was. Stupid, ignorant little *******

    Yes I know, no need to say what you already said. You're still not reading what I'm saying- I didn't say it was representative of all people. Where did I say that?

    It was the BNP march or some crap like that
    And it was arranged to happen around the time all the football is over so your going to have all blues, coventry, villa and other midlands fans up town which would cause more trouble

    This doesn't sounds nearly half as bad as the Birmingham, Alabama riots and to me, it just sounds like stupid racists and stupid islamic fundamentalists who were involved (and stupid teens) so it doesn't really come out as shocking.

    Yea it wasn't a big deal at all. Just mindless violence. I felt sorry for all the little kids who'd spent 2hrs in the Odeon, then came out to the sight of 2 police vans at the doors and hundreds of people screaming and running like wild deer!

    Why?

    Due to the fact that people think its a good idea to stamp on one another due to a difference of skin colour?

    More proof that idiots are idiots if anything.

    They must live in a bubble. Stuck in their cars, offices or houses all the time and don't actually really get out that much and see what goes on around the streets of this place

    Exactly. Get out there and experience it for yourself. The city's a dump anyway.

    what are you talking about they have a black friend and an asian friend in their group of friends, it must mean racism doesn't exist in brum!

    Brum is pretty divided. The most racist people i know have came from brum and talk about the divide.

    The most racist people i've known are 13-20yr Muslim boys and old Muslim women. I used to work in a predominantly Asian community in Brum, for 3yrs. The amount of racial abuse towards all other ethnic groups from those people was baaaad. It was the ignorance that was the worst of it. How they just assumed that every white and black person hated them, and how they assumed that ALL white people are Christians.

    It's the ignorance of people today that's shocking.
