Google photo closeups feature a few white guys but the dead gunman, Mark Duggan and most of the crowd were black.
Birbalsingh had asked a police officer what percentage of gun crime involved blacks. The man, who had been addressing school kids about the Trident program, turned pink.
"He explained that about 80 per cent of gun crime took place in the black community. I smiled uncomfortably. But no, he said, it was worse than that. Then he told me that 80 per cent was black on black gun crime, and that of the remaining 20 per cent about 75 per cent involved at least one black person: black shooting white, or white shooting black. I pushed to know more. While he kept saying his stats were crude and he didn’t have scientific numbers, on the whole the whites who were involved in these shootings tended to be from Eastern Europe.Update: "Get it real, black people!
