Shame and sorrow?

Is there the same sense of "shame and sorrow" in the Lozells area of Birmingham following the racist murder of Isiah Young-Sam as there was in Huyton, Liverpool, following the racist murder of Anthony Walker?

Unfortunately, Isiah's murder seems to be an opportunity for urban regeneration rather than a moment for reflection.

A march and meeting are being organised to discuss the underlying causes of the tensions in the Birmingham area and find "ways in which we can move together against the neglect and deprivation that all sections of the community face"
