"This August, the world watched on as the United Kingdom tore itself apart for five nights. The trouble began in Tottenham, in response to the death of a local man, Mark Duggan, at the hands of police. ... Given the presence of large numbers of young black men among the rioters, Britain’s tabloid media unsurprisingly wasted little time in blaming hip hop for the nation’s woes." (10/25/11)
