In a shock of shocks, PM Tony Blair has blamed "black culture" for a series of murders in England.
He must be a racist for mouthing the truth, dammit.
Blair blames spate of murders on black culture
Tony Blair yesterday claimed the spate of knife and gun murders in London was not being caused by poverty, but a distinctive black culture. His remarks angered community leaders, who accused him of ignorance and failing to provide support for black-led efforts to tackle the problem.
One accused him of misunderstanding the advice he had been given on the issue at a Downing Street summit.
Black community leaders reacted after Mr Blair said the recent violence should not be treated as part of a general crime wave, but as specific to black youth. He said people had to drop their political correctness and recognise that the violence would not be stopped "by pretending it is not young black kids doing it".
Just imagine if a politician in the United States did something like this. He would be murdered outright. But he would be perfectly correct.
