EYST director Rocio Cifuentes said:…"Through the Think Project we hope to work with young people who might not have had the chance to learn much positive stuff about immigrants, black people and so on, and to change this by giving them a chance to learn, experience and think for themselves, while at the same time recognising their grievances and helping them improve their own communities.Do they? Hmmm…
"Some young white people feel let down, as they feel the support is there for ethnic groups.

…has now been awarded a lottery grant of almost £170,000 to carry out a three-year project to help tackle the problem.Well, that’s money well spent, right?
ESYT, based on St Helen's Road, has been awarded the funding for its Think Project, following the success of a three-month pilot.In other words, offenders and those excluded from schools. Nothing like fishing in a well-stocked pool, eh?
It will allow staff to work with around 80 youths a year, referred to them by the Youth Offending Service and alternative education providers.
Ms Cifuentes added: "Unfortunately, despite developments such as Stephen Lawrence's killers facing justice at last, racism and support for the far-right are not history, but are very much alive and kicking in some parts of our community.Translation: ‘Give us the money or there’ll be a massacre! It’s for the sake of the chiiiilllldreeeennnn!’
"We know these attitudes are growing across Europe, you only have to look at the shootings in Norway."
