In class today we learnt about community cohesion and how things like the London Riots of 2011 might wreck our idea of what a strong, united community looks like.
Plan B’s Ill Manors is a great song showing how poor investment in community initiatives like community centres pushes young people to do things they shouldn’t, like rioting. Listen carefully to the lyrics.
Then there’s a song by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip called Great Britain which again if listened to carefully explains how knife crime and gang crime can ruin communities.
Finally here’s a debate show arguing about whether we should promote a united British identity. Some might prefer us celebrating everyone’s differences whereas others think we should all blend together into some British identity.
