The student head of Cambridge University’s equality group termed “all white people are racist” after lauding rioters in Dalston who lit bonfires and threw petrol bombs at police, according to The Independent.
Jason Osamede Okundaye, who runs the Black and Minority Ethnic society at the elite institution, posted the shocking tweets amid violent protests in east London last night over the death of Rashan Charles.
He said that white people had “colonised” Dalston and ordered them to “go back” to areas such as Exeter and “Solihurs” [sic].
Okundaye, 20, wrote to his thousands of Twitter followers:”ALL white people are racist. White middle class, white working class, white men, white women, white gays, white children they can ALL geddit.”
The student at Cambridge’s Pembroke College also claimed it was “absolutely delicious” to watch”middle-class white people despair over black people protesting in their colonised Dalston”.
Last last night, demonstrators barricaded part of the area’s Kingsland Road – close to where Charles died last week following a struggle with a police officer – with wheelie bins, mattresses and household debris.
The 20-year-old died after he was chased by an officer who attempted to remove an object from his throat, according to an initial probe by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Footage on social media appeared to show at least one police officer attempting to restrain the 20-year-old in a shop close to where the protest is being held.
Dramatic video taken last night showed more than a dozen officers retreating from protesters who launched objects at them.
The violence has drawn parallels with the London riots in 2011, which were sparked by the police shooting of 29-year-old Mark Duggan in Tottenham.
And as night descended, worrying videos showed youths setting fire to mattresses in the middle of the road and pelting police vans with objects.
The windows of several shops in Kingsland High Street were smashed as the violence extended beyond Dalston Kingsland Station.
