An English historian sparked outrage Friday when he blamed Black and Afro-Caribbean culture for the London riots, despite the rioters being predominantly white.

The comments came during a BBC roundtable debate in which several of the guests disagreed with what they called Starkey’s outlandish comments.

“The problem is that the whites have become black — a particular sort of violent, destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become the fashion — and black and white, boy and girl, operate in this language together; this language, which is wholly false, which is a Jamaican patois, that’s been intruded in England, and this is why so many of us have this sense of literally a foreign country.”

Owen Jones, who was also on the panel and is a writer, vehemently disagreed with Starkey’s assertion.

“It’s utterly outrageous, obviously, what you’re saying. What you’re doing is you’re equating black culture with criminality.”
