Always A Dead Giveaway…

Tributes have been paid to a young man who was stabbed to death in Thornton Heath last night.
First, street names:
Mujaahid Wilson, also known as TS or Tiny Sneaky…
Then, friends who are notorious, or who need to remain anonymous:
Brixton rapper Sneakbo tweeted: "The streets don't love you...Smh Rip TS!" One friend, John, who wished to be known only by his first name, said Mr Wilson was a "great person."
Next, hints about what the victim was really like:
"My bike was stolen once my sister called him and he helped me get the bike back within half an hour and he got the boys to apologise."
And then the authorities giving the game away:
DCI Reynolds said: "It is clear the victim argued with one suspect, who we believe must have been known to him, and the rest of the group were not involved. They are being treated as witnesses and we would ask them to contact us in confidence."
Nothing to see here, move along…

The use of the phrases 'aspiring rapper' and the 'street names' are almost a guarantee that it will be a 'no humans involved' case. A pandering to and acceptance of the Black street culture followed by a minority of Britain's black population, by the authorities has done a grave disservice to Britain's Black citizens. By elevating the 'street' scene, and not condemning it, the do gooders have helped to condemn young Black people in Britain to a life of crime, low achievement and failure. Role models matter and if you are promoting whether actively or passively an anti-learning ghetto culture then you are going to end up with ghettos dominated by the violent and the uneducated who end up preying on those Black families who are trying to do their best to bring their children up properly.

"Promising footballer who had had trials with...(insert name of crappy League Two outfit here)" is another.

I think the Evening Standard meant "aspiring thug who bit off more than he could chew".

I always thought 'promising footballer' was a polite way of describing some kid as thick.

I expect it's encoded into a keyboard shortcut. Got to prevent RSI somehow!

"In related news, I also disposed of some rubbish today."

:D

"Role models matter and if you are promoting whether actively or passively an anti-learning ghetto culture then you are going to end up with ghettos dominated by the violent and the uneducated..."

Our intelligentsia sneer at the US states like Chicago, but they showed us what happends. And we didn't listen.

"I always thought 'promising footballer' was a polite way of describing some kid as thick."

It's pretty good shorthand, isn't it?
