UK #HipHopEd I've just been rewatching Starkey on Newsnight - it's still difficult viewing..
@Dunfordjames
UK #hiphoped my thoughts at time were that dispossessed were striking at all they knew - consumerism and inequality. Can we widen minds?

UK #HipHopEd I watched Starkley & read a few articles & if I changed the names of the cities I would be in America!
Darren Chetty @rapclassroom
@Dunfordjames Have you discussed it with your students? Colleagues? Uk #HipHopEd
Darren Chetty @rapclassroom
@tdj6899 Is there a 'The whites have become Black' narrative in the US also? UK #HipHopEd
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
@rapclassroom Its broader than what is implied in the UK. It's the tanning of America from the reach of our culture. UK #HipHopEd
@Dunfordjames
@rapclassroom a little. At time Leeds had diff prob - tit for tat attacks leading to a fatal shooting. Profound effect on pupils #HipHopEd
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
@rapclassroom There was a term "wiggers" that was describing white kids that were trying 2B black UK #HipHopEd
Kate Ryan @MsKateRyan
The riots could have enabled great discourse surrounding causes and effects. It was unfortunate that hysteria prevented it. UK #HipHopEd
@Dunfordjames
@rapclassroom however, many saw police racism and pressure as a cause. Teachers blamed greed! Not all, but enough! UK #HipHopEd
@Dunfordjames
@tdj6899 @rapclassroom is it the formation of a new urban culture? Not white, black, Asian, but poor and excluded? UK #HipHopEd
@Dunfordjames
@MsKateRyan I agree. Media deliberately steered must away, and towards blame and both subtle and not subtle racism UK #HipHopEd

I was not surprised by the riots in the uk. History tells the tale. Tory govt = civil unrest. Everyone understands greed! #hiphoped
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
@MsKateRyan Sadly I'm not surprised at his views. I was surprised that his focus was on "becoming" & not "acting" black! UK #HipHopEd
Darren Chetty @rapclassroom
@Dunfordjames Most of my pupils were unaware that there had been riots before - this made them even more scared and confused! UK #HipHopEd
Kate Ryan @MsKateRyan
@tdj6899 That's an interesting point. Hadn't given that nuance much thought before... UK #HipHopEd
