Darcus Howe – on the Riots
This is how the news works when everyone is on the spot. They interviewed this writer about the riots, he gave a strong opinion and viewpoint and it turns out to be one of the great moments where a person got to speak his mind on a controversial topic. The BBC announcers were going for the gold against him, but he stood his ground. It’s not quite a Kanye West “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” moment, but this reveals volumes.
