"July 7 Tube bomber" argued with cashier

31-10-2005 19:00

Killing Each Other

31-10-2005 14:12

I was reminded this week at a film showing of ‘Handsworth Songs’ by a colleague, ‘Oppressed people internalize their oppressor’s contempt for them, acting on it first by killing each other,’ quoting Franz Fanon. Immigrant communities have always felt segregations amongst each other since their arrival into the ghettos of major European cities.
