Most of the Black and White kids went to school with each other, And some friendships was more powerful than gang rivalry, But in general we just tolerated each other, at the end of the day people by and large wanted to hang around with their own. The Blacks would come in our clubs, but it was when they tried to pull White girls that caused problems, Back then like now their has always been White girls who liked Black Lads, these particular girls would go to Black clubs which was fair enough, But in our clubs the Girls did not like Black lads coming on to them, So it would cause aggro. Once trouble started people mostly sided in with their own, but it was complicated as i said I was loyal to my mates who happened to be Black, But at the same time I was involved in a Race War. Life back in the 50s/60s/70s was so different too now, Minorities had no real rights, and they knew and accepted it, You had to live through it to really understand it, We use to get in a club in Golders Green NW London , One night the DJ said their was a load of Blacks waiting for us outside, most of the club was filled up with Kilburn Skinheads, But their was also other Skinhead Gang rivals in there that night. Rivalry was put aside and they all piled out, They just steamed into the Blacks, The Black lads just run, Skinheads chasing them down the road, Catching some of them and people was getting hurt, the Police was all over but allowed the Skinheads to get on with it, Plus the coppers was nicking the Black lads and leaving the Skinheads alone. The thing back then Britain was a racist society, People then knew no different, But i do not think people as individuals was that racist, Once our little race war ended, One of the black lads who i was fighting only a couple of weeks before came to the Tottenham Royal with me one night, We got to the door and the fcuking Bouncers would not allow him in..Cnuts.. so we went Home.
