Once again, I reiterate:

Players aren't kneeling because they are Marxists. They aren't kneeling because they are part of the BLM group.

They are kneeling to raise awareness of racial inequality.

They are doing it in a show of solidarity for each other, and for the millions of people who still suffer from racist abuse.

If you want to attribute any other meaning to it, you're entering a world of speculation and rumour. That's fine, but you've got to ask yourself: why are you searching for an alternative meaning?

Quoted from Marinerdan
Got to say I love Croatia, its a beautiful country.

There's definitely a racist element amongst their football fans, the national team was playing behind closed doors last time we where there. However, we didn't experience any racism, even outside of the main tourist areas. The people we met were universally lovely.

I know a lot of people are only against the 'Marxist' element of BLM rather then the anti-racism element. Not sure how much you know about Croatia but there is a huge amount of 'Marxism' left over from their communist past. Their education system is free all the way up to masters level, their healthcare is free and of a very good standard and most of the major industries are still state owned (oil, transport, telecommunications, water and even a chunk of the tourism industry).


Yes these are the disgusting remnants of a Marxist past and they would undermine any right thinking country like ours. We would never accept:

Free healthcare
Free education (not to masters level but not far away)
State owned industries (UK government is primary shareholder in a number of banks [for example])

And we would never accept other Marxist constructs like:

Paying the majority of the wages of people forced out of work by a pandemic
Subsidising restaurants hit by a pandemic
Subsidising industries hit by a pandemic

Socialism/Marxism is unacceptable to Britain. Let's get back to talking about the Queen's picture being taken off a university common room wall.

Not doing it doesn't make you a racist. Booing it at least raises some question marks though doesn't it? Can't think of that many reasons why you'd boo an anti racism protest of 3 seconds even if you claim it's because you think Jordan Henderson wants to defund the police.

And meanwhile, as we debate taking the knee again....

A government minister is found guilty by a judicial review of giving a government contract to a company with friends in the Cabinet Office.

And Jordan Pickford is demanding a workers revolution and class war to smash capitalism.

If you mean Cummins then he was never a Government Minister.

It’s a mystery how some of you thick fúckers have reached your 60s and 70s. Some of you haven’t got the sense you were born with, unless you just act performatively stupid on here as a hobby?

There are children more clued up than some of the biggest whingers on here.

I mean Gove. He still is a government minister. They were Cummins friends.

Quoted from Grimsbynewhope
Spin it how you want, make excuses how you want, blame everyone as much as you want.you know the real reason why you’re so against a simple protest.
It’s all in black and white.


So if I don't or refuse to "take the knee" does that make me a racist?

Well I'm 73 with a university education so explain to me what you mean?
