Enough is enough as far as I'm concerned. Any decent human being would agree that all lives matter and that you should treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself.

I just don't understand how watching Raheem Sterling and 21 others taking the knee every Saturday is helping any black people involved in knife and drug crime in Haringey and Hackney.

I dont even think that the BLM protesters know what they want. Having lost the Brexit vote and the election, rather than sit around drinking skinny latee's in Clapham they have decided that this is the next opportunity to cause chaos.

From what I understand the BLM requirements are as follows:


1. BLM wants to ‘dismantle capitalism’
2. BLM wants to abolish prisons
3. BLM wants to get rid of borders
4. BLM says unemployment is 'violence'
5. BLM condemns stop and search
6. BLM wants to get rid of the police
7. BLM says the government appointment of a Pakistani heritage woman is 'racist'
8. BLM condemned the suffragettes
9. BLM said Churchill is 'staunchly racist'
10. BLM describes big charities as 'colonisers'

Good luck with that lot !

I for one would just like to watch a football match minus the politics.

You reckon some league 2 footballers kneeling down for 10 seconds in an empty stadium is a step towards the removal of the concept of nations?

Or maybe they just want to show support for a just cause.

Quoted from RichMariner
There is racial injustice in the world and I will quite happily support those who choose to protest by taking the knee for as long they want to protest in that manner.

It's a peaceful, non-invasive protest. It's what a protest should be.


It’s not racial injustice at all mate. It sanctimonious bullsh1t.

Every race and religion has felt persecuted at some time. It doesn’t matter ether If it’s the Egyptians, the Irish, the Bolivians, the Eskimo’s or the Tibetan monks. Unless you are ruling an empire or are wining a war, then you are a victim to atrocity



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

What if a white supremacacist (*sp) went into a mosque and blew themself and innocent people up?


This feels like an easy one unless I'm missing something....unless you think that would be bad it kind of feels like you're pinning your colours to the mast.

Re the fox hunting African I think I'd need more detail. How did he die? Did the fox have any far right sympathies? Background detail like that.

That is your right to disagree, there is no mandate set for everyone to be seen to be in agreeance with these thoughts.

I think it’s the total opposite. Maybe am wrong.


So you think people are taking the knee because they are pro-racism??!


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Quoted from sam gy
So, so many snowflakes crying about some footballers taking the knee. Again.

Wahh wahh wahhh. Pathetic.


You’re tight. Ironically it’s the people who often call others for being snowflakes. The biggest who gets out there.

It’s quite simple really. If you think there is no racism you need to switch your senses on. If despite all the evidence about racism you deny it, you’re a lier.  If you think it’s OK you’re a racist. If you have a problem with anti-racism you are probably a racist. If you think people are being bullied into opposing racism you need to get real.
