If you kneel for BLM surely you are being subservient to it.

Soft Southgate is looking after his very well paid job, he's jumped in bed with the Bovril Boys know as the "woke" brigade.

I HAVEN'T SPOKEN TO ONE PERSON WHO ISN'T REALLY P****D WITH ALL THIS 'BLACK LIVES MATTER' CAMPAIGN. IT IS DOING THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT "THEY" THINK IT IS DOING.

I could not agree more, because it is making people who are normally very tolerant of other ethnic people in this country, and it is making them feel racist towards them, because they are sick to the back teeth of these people moaning about their lot in life, and blaming it on their race, colour, and creed.

Spot on there Admin, it's certainly pushed me away from them.
Before all this blm bollox black people didn't really bother me, I didn't see them, but now it seems that every time you put a modern day program on telly the screen is full of 'em.
So, there you have it blm, your not influencing me, your pushing me away.
Stick that in your"woke" box and smoke it.

We never hear any remorse for Lee Rigby, Philip Lawrence (headmaster stabbed outside his school), etc., etc.
Maybe supporters should hold up placards with the names of the whites murdered by blacks while players are "taking the knee".

Southgate has no need to worry for long. After a couple of games all the BOOS will be directed at him.

Croatia's players don't intend to take a knee ahead of their Euro 2020 opener against England on Sunday.
Replied: 9th Jun 2021 at 20:57
Can't remember who was playing? but a couple of weeks ago a foreign player told the referee that another player had said or done something. The referee said who was it? and the player said "that black guy over there" The black player accused him of being racist???? and the player was reported to his F.A. I don't know what the outcome was, but just goes to show how far we have come in all this B******S

TTS has hit the nail on the head, absolutely right.
Taking the knee has served its purpose, let it go. It is now having an adverse effect alienating a lot of people that would normally be sympathetic.

It makes you wonder if black people get top jobs because are capable of doing it or is it because of the colour of their skin

Basil you have answered your own question. Would Alex Scott or Micah Richards have got the jobs they have now if they were white? They are never off the screen. Alex Scott always on the "ONE SHOW", and taking over "QUESTION OF SPORT" and "FOOTBALL FOCUS" Micah Richards turns up on every football programme, and even has his own page in the Daily Mail You had never heard their names mentioned before all this B.L.M. malarky..
I bet when they go to bed each night they say 'THANK YOU GOD FOR MAKING ME BLACK'

I think therein lies the matter at hand. Historically some firms/companies would have overlooked people of colour for jobs for just that reason. Now, as things have moved on these same firms are now feared of rejecting these same applicants for fear of being accused of racism. Where before it would have been ' best applicant by far, but he's black, sorry ' now it's ' definately not the best we've interviewed but we can't not give it them ' The pendulum has swung completely the other way. It should be what an individual brings to the table, not their colour. As a personal observation, I played football many years ago with half a dozen black lads ( yes, I'm sure they won't mind me calling them that ) and they were a cracking bunch of lads. One or two rum un's but you knew that if it came to hey lad's hey, they'd have your back. It's not about skin colour, it's about what's beating in the chest. There's good and bad in everyone, irrespective of skin tone

It's fine being inclusive but where are the Oriental (yellow) people??? There are a lot of areas in the U.K. with a large Chinese population. How many of them do you see presenting TV programmes?

When I worked down the pit we all ended up blackIn twenty years down the pit there was one black pitman on regular nights and a couple of Indian lads who were going for their managers qualifications.

BB I think we have a fair proportion of disabled presenters.
There are thousands of people who have studied journalism at University and worked on News papers, and Local radio for years, who have oodles of experience. Yet these people who have no experience are FAST TRACKED into jobs they have no experience of doing, all because of the colour of their skin.
I have a friend who worked for SOUTHWARK COUNCIL for a few years and you wouldnt believe the stories he can tell..

'FREEDOM OF SPEECH' is a thing of the past in this country.

Freedom of speech seems to be ok if you have the right colour of skin.
Example; Anthony Joshua can address a crowd of b.l.m supporters and tell them, "only go in shops that are owned by black people," so let's put the boot on the other foot, if Tyson Fury had told a crowd of White's to only shop in places owned by white people he would have been slammed by the media and could have been thrown out of boxing.
That's the difference.

The chinese must be happy with their lot and feel no need to complain so they are ignored.
