    I enjoyed that actually, quite funny

    I don't quite agree though, he says you cannot seperate the phrase BLM with the orgnaisation, fair enough, but that would mean (imo) your average football fan who booed is not motivated by racism and is politically switched on.
    Do you recall fans booing previous Kick it Out displays at matches? Of course some fans are racist but I believe the vast majority of fans aren't including some of the booers. (is booer even a word?)

      I disagree.
      I believe that the traits of tribalism displayed by football fans, crosses over into racialism. Within the UK, there is a lot of antagonism between the Home Countries. The English being widely disliked by the Scots, Irish and Welsh and many English fans feel similarly disposed to dislike their neighbours. Its historical and inbred. Its replicated all over the world. Its not a small minority, its general. Too many people confuse racial prejudice with colour prejudice. Anti-Semitism has nothing to do with skin colour.
      A racist is someone who believes in the superiority of a particular race and participates in antagonistic behaviour toward other races. The KKK and the Nation of Islam are racist organisations, one believing in white supremacy, the other in black supremacy. When the President of the US delivers a eulogy at the funeral of a close friend who was a KKK member, then we still have a very long way to go.
      There is racialism and racism in every walk of life and there has been since man first appeared on this planet. It will never disappear but the hope is that, tiny bit by tiny bit, it changes and improves. Footballers are telling us that they want to educate and inform, on the subject of discrimination. Well thats fine, to some extent, but if you are putting yourself forward as leaders and role models, then start trying to display some basic integrity yourselves, when carrying out your profession.
      The only real role models in life are parents. They are the movers and shakers. They set the example for children to follow.

      Point of order, how come the Scots didn’t grovel on the knee to a career criminal and a movement that wishes to defund the police before they had their pants pulled down Monday, but are doing so tomorrow night at Wembley? Very odd.
