I'm just watching this on the news and feeling so very sad.

His family asked that his friends wear football shirts. No one was allowed to wear black, it was to be a celebration of light and life and colour.

Stabbed for being black. It's a crying shame

I've just seen that as well Mars. Makes me feel sick that people can do that to such a bright young lad because he was black.

It's appalling, is what it is. It makes me so & incredibly that in our so-called 'civilised society' people are still persecuted for their skin colour. My thoughts are with the boy's family, I hope they can find peace and justice.

what an horrendous crime this was - there seems to be a lot of knife attacks currently

I think it was the same week that lad got stabbed to death on a bus cos he asked someone to stop throwing chips at his girlfriend! - what is the world coming to?
