I will call you out on this, sorry! However, your point is irrelevant. Crime is not linked to race, rather linked to social status. It is more likely to happen in a very poor area than a wealthy one. We all know that overall, Blacks and other minority groups are on a lower social status in comparison to the dominant White majority in America. As an American, you should know why it is so?
Thus crime rate, gang life is much more likely to be higher in those poor predominantly Black neighborhood than predominantly White one which are usually wealthier. The so-called "Black on Black" murder are linked to that, since most poor people are Black there anyway. Nevertheless in middle-class predominantly Black neighborhood the crime rate is just as low or sometimes even lower than in White neighborhoods.
Shooting innocent Black people by the police is not right!! Stereotypes about Black people, the history of segregation, slavery are linked to those false perceptions. Using an excuse such as the Black on Black murders is complete nonsense to justify. This is coming from a White person.

I know EXACTLY where Britain is, I know EXACTLY what its like to live in 21st Century Britain and for your information I know Stamford Bridge INTIMATLEY, if you want a serious conversation about race relations in Britain, or a serious conversation about Londons extremely diverse population (or the other places in the UK with a very high diversity), or if you want to talk about football then I suggest you stop pretending to know things you so obviously don't know first. Tell me what do YOU think are the main differences for a black spectator between going to a Serie A game and going to the Emirates would be? I know damn sure I could tell you, but as you're the 'expert' perhaps you could 'grace us' with your knowledge first?
Chelsea fans love the Black people of Paris so much to stop them from even entering the train. They are hooligans , something you're familiar with.

Again, Saxonwold, that one incident was a caused by a small number of mindless bigots and does not reflect the general attitude towards black people in neither London nor the UK as a whole. Try again.

Crime (at least violent crime) is EXTREMELY correlated with race. All of the high homicide-rate concentrations in the U.S. are in black neighborhoods. Every single one.

Has very little to do with economics or environment. Many of the poorest, most backward parts of the U.S. have below-average crime rates, but they are poor white or Hispanic areas, with tons of social ills. Eastern KY is very poor, backward, drug-addicted, etc. but little violent crime.

Eastern KY has some high violent crime spots, though not as high as similar income black inner-city neighborhoods. Poorer black neighborhoods have much more violent crime than middle-class ones; its a stretch yo say the economic correlation is small

Economics is a significant contributing factor and so is the concentration of poverty(huge number of people densely packed with no prospects of employment) and the proliferation of guns.

Just place a bunch of rats in a cage with limited space and resources and they'll turn on each other. Humans are animals.

In Latin America (e.g. Mexico), it seems to be even more so.

We can see where Saxonwold gets his (facts) about life in the UK from! Must be the Daily Mail or Fox News!

The poorest counties in America don't even appear among the those with the highest homicide per capita rates. OTH, every single one of the top 25 in homicide per capita are predominantly black. The first step to fixing a problem is to acknowledge that one exists.

Now imagine countries where such things like that never came to light. What you might think is " excessively racist" in America might not be in some European countries.
Yes, I was sitting close to them when they were singing "we are racist"...it was in Line 9 in Paris. I was going home...
I was shocked. The UK is becoming more and more racist. It was not 5/10 years ago...
Racial agressions happen on a daily basis now in the UK with the surge of recent immigration. And now Brexit...
