The following Channel 4 “Dispatches” documentary (broken up into five parts for YouTube) takes a look at the growing phenomenon of gang rape among underclass youth in Britain. Black teenagers are grotesquely over-represented among the perpetrators of these crimes.
But the victims of these rapes are also overwhelmingly black, as is the reporter who presents their stories. Thus — unless it constitutes racism simply to reveal such unpleasant facts — the makers of this documentary can hardly be described as racists.
The reporter, Sorious Samura, is a relatively recent arrival from Senegal, and did not grow up in the behavioral sink of the suburban housing estates where most of this documentary was filmed. He is patient and calm throughout, but his moral outrage at what these kids are doing shows through repeatedly — he finds it difficult to comprehend how boys could turn into violent predators at such a young age.
WARNING: These videos are disturbing. The language is not explicit, and no violence is depicted, but the actions that are described and discussed in them may upset sensitive viewers:
