Why do you feel so threatened about other people having equality with you? Do you think giving black people equality can only be achieved by you having to give something up yourself? What makes you so angry about the idea that BAME are treated like white people?

Which is what?


That the mere phrase "black lives matter" has an implication that other lives don't matter. What the message is supposed to be is about equality, but what about Asian, Oriental, Native Americans, Mexicans, Eastern Europeans and a whole host of other people that could be deemed to be taken advantage of in some way or another by the "rich white man".

Why does destroying British heritage need to be a part of a movement for equality? Atrocities committed in our colonial past were absolutely wrong, but we shouldn't try to destroy all evidence of them, we should keep them as a reminder of our past mistakes and learn from them. Why does a movement that wants equality want to abolish the police?

You’ll not be taking part in any minutes silence for remembrance day then, and demanding the iron-on poppies are removed from players shirts then yeah?


Rememberance day is the very opposite of a political statement or demonstation you clown and for you to suggest it is shows a staggering level of ignorance.

let me take you back to a certain player named Tony Ford and certain Chants emanating from the Pontoon incorporating the N word we look back with shock and from my opinion with distaste.

ask yourselves is it ok to do that

Is he not a Town Icon a legend so why chant offensive words to one of our own ?

it seems to me that no one takes certain things that seriously.

All lives matter but why do people counter argue one against the other to prove a point, mammary for tat.

If the players want to take the knee fine It's their choice  No one get upset when a players runs on the pitch and they kiss the floor point to the sky cross their chest etc mumble and mumble little verse.

I must say I much prepare the Premier Leagues new approach which is more aimed at racism in general, not giving in to a BLM marketing campaign.

It’s a really slippery slope you get yourselves into when clubs like QPR have been chastised for not doing it. So now what, do you do it forever and hope that BLM don’t brand you as a racist club when you stop?

In my eyes BLM are an organisation who are intent on division and have actually caused more harm than they have good. You’ve got a brilliant opportunity here whilst the subject isn’t going away to make a change, yet BLM have peddled their Anti Police, Anti Semitic and Anti ‘white’ balderdash which has instead just alienated people. At some point people are going to look back on the BLM group and awkwardly acknowledge they were part of it and didn’t get involved in a decent anti racism campaign instead.

Interesting that les Ferdinand has come out today and said : o

‘that it was good PR but it’s message has now Been lost and is about as much use as a hashtag or a pin badge ‘

‘Taking the knee has now been diluted, much in the same way that the clap for carers ran its natural course’

The statement he makes is spot on in my opinion. It’s not that people don’t care about it, it’s lost any impact it had. For me, the likes of Lewis Hamilton have over played it meaning the good work that’s been done by the likes of Marcus rashford Is now not as effective. And if Marcus Rashford doesn’t get sports personality of the year or recognised in the New Years honours, something is amiss

“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”

Marcus Rashford will be overlooked in the new years honours list.

He hasn't donated any money to the Tory party, he only helps poor people.

Well said.

Its shocking what happened to the  Native Americans Indians though. Hence they lived in most of what is now the United States of America and colonists came and bullied and killed millions in that quest for power .Now only pockets of original Native American land remain as your most likely aware.

I think  those that support the abolition of the police that's  quite a crazy view and is linked to that of the extreme left. Hence in most  society's since the dawn of man law and order has always existed in some shape or another.
