I personally think it's losing it's affect, it's served its purpose but it can't carry on indefinitely. The look on most player's faces tells you all you need to know, they are doing because they have to, not because they want to. It has become a token gesture.

Time to move on me thinks.

Has it served it’s purpose? How has it been successful?


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.

In point if fact it hadn’t served it’s purpose. Just look at how many complaints that act got on that talent show. 15,000 was it? I bet most of them claim not to be racist. As if!

Made me laugh on the match thread.  One bloke said, that it shouldn't be in sport yet he kept banging on about it in the match thread. The ten second action lasted the whole match.  He also said, he would turn his back on Town - the sooner the better I think .   If you really want to turn your back, you'd just do it not keep talking about it.

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.


How simplistic your views are, oh there is plenty of racism in the world, having lived in moss side and stratford and witnessed it first hand, black people are not the only victims but who wants to hear about any differing views other than the media driven BLM.

So many folk bang on about it not being a football issue blah blah yet so many get their knickers in a twist about it.

To be honest, when we did it on Saturday it just made me laugh because I could see the non believers and so on getting raged at it...ironic given they justify why it should happen becauee football and politics should be kept apart...which is impossible.

What annoys me about this whole thing is the fact that many of the players are now bringing the Black Power salute into play when they take the knee.  What next?

Spot on. Unfortunately there are many people on this forum who fall into the category of denying they are racist, when everything they type would suggest the total opposite.

This reminded me of many Fishy posters when I saw it.
