Abstract or Description

Why has British cultural studies had so little to say about the political activity of the adult black working class population in Britain? Why has social anthropology seen blacks in Britain as lacking the cohesive culture which is believed to underpin ethnicity? And, relatedly, why has sociology especially of 'race relations', conceptualised blacks in Britain primarily as a set of social problems?
