English Coursework - Hooligan Report A Report On The Problems Of Youth Culture By Bryni Keeble-Morris 10th Feb 2007 Intended for: Bradford Council Stereotypes of Youths Today There are many stereotypes of youths today, but the main ones seem to be that most young people are all hooligans, yobs and slobs. If you delve closer into the matter though, you will see there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. If you go up to any youth in the street, 9 out of 10 of them would more than likely be polite to you and have an ordinary conversation with you. But many of the older generation seem to think that this is not so. I myself have come across this and it seems to confuse me. My grandmother is quick to rant on about youths being 'yobs' whenever she reads anything about the like. ...read more.


It seems that nowadays everybody seems to take things to extremes and in the case of youths this is quite prominent. Is The Media The One To Blame? Whenever we read any articles about youths, the negative ones seem to be made a lot more prominent than the good ones. For example, I recently read a newspaper and there was a big article about a man complaining about graffiti that had been done by 'yobs'. It showed a big picture of him not looking very pleased and a big heading saying that a village is to 'get tough on youths causing misery'. I then delved deeper into the paper to try and find any other articles that might be positive. After trawling through the paper I came to a miniscule article about two youths helping the charity OXFAM by raising money for them. Also a recent report on 603 articles about youths, 71% of them were negative and only 14% was positive. ...read more.


If there were more youth clubs still about then these youths would have somewhere to go and there would be no need for them to misbehave. The government should spend more money on clubs for youths to go to and ask the youths themselves what they want in these clubs so that they actually want to go and then they will. Us ourselves could take time out to get more involved with youths as there seems to be a barrier between the two segregations of youths and adults. If we were to just talk to them then the youths would see that adults are friendly, they would build more of a sense of respect for them, and with respect there will be no need for rebelliousness such as graffiti or destroying people's property. Overall I think what we need to do is to just get more involved. It would solve a lot of problems, but there is still the question would the two groups be willing to do this? We will never know until it happens! ...read more.
