Quoted from Rodley Mariner
There you go. Some black people have good jobs and Lew is naturally 'absolutely fine' with it. Job done, institutional racism no more, stop banging on about it.


And there you have it. Rodders putting his own interpretation on what I said which was certainly not "some black people have good jobs"

I am absolutely fine with the UK being one of the most diverse countries in the world with the most stringent equality laws in the world. I am also absolutely fine with the fact that people of all colours and races reach the very top in all aspects of society.

Just as a point of interest, when fans are eventually allowed back into football grounds should they be expected to "kneel " if the players do? What if some fans don't then will they be shamed and labelled racist?

Just like the players, you can do whatever you want.

That's what I thought but it does appear that footballers, and indeed other sportsmen, have been criticised for not "taking the knee".

I've only seen critism for taking the knee, I've seen nothing for people not taking the knee.  I would say you are making it up.

It's a personal choice - whether you kneel or not - club/league legislation should not enter into it.
Players should not be criticised for taking up either option - we are supposed to live in a free society.

Any ideas on why? If the players feel so strongly about kneeling it took 3 games for them to do it
