On account that you don't view monkey chants aimed at black players to be racist, I certainly don't doubt that you haven't witnessed racism. What happened is an example of people being abused due to their race now. so nevermind the 70s.

I've told you that if I saw it I'd say something. Apparently if you heard it you'd see it as childish and be unhappy at anyone voicing objection. Well, that's for you isn't it. The easy way out vs standing against something that most would and rightly do view as out of order.

Please don't be daft.
I have never heard a monkey chant at any match.

I did once nearly get stabbed with a very big knife defending some Asians guys in a takeaway. Does that count?

It's actually either and it was originally with the Y.

A little knowledge....

Please don't reply unless you have something interesting to say.

Was being the key here. Even someone as backward as you canít claim to be from the 17th century. That said Iím sure youíd prefer to speak exclusively in Olde English if you could, fair enough.

And Iíll be a disinteresting bore if I feel like it. Hard to reach the depth and consistency of some of the specialists on here though.

I'm not sure you have a choice.

I haven't said you have. At the end, most people simply don't want to see this stuff so there will always be a reaction to it. It's thankfully a rare occurrence in countries it's clamped down on, that's one reason you don't see it. Saying that it isn't even racism and instead criticising the reaction to it is not a position most would hold, but we all have our own approach of course.

Be a pal someone and summarise what's kicking off, saves me trawling back through.

I'll take a stab at a guess as it's been all over the radio all day:

Everyone is out doing themselves to prove their outrage is the most outraged over, surprise, surprise, a Balkan nation hurling racist abuse, again.

Then someone popped up with some perspective and all the militant lefties on here lost their s***?

Is that close?

I think racial issues such as monkey chants in football, in society at least, are not purely viewed along political lines. Portraying the idea that it's not a problem as 'perspective', and is one as 'militant lefties' may fit here, but it doesn't apply on a wider scale.

Yes, but the coverage on our premier sports channel is endless. It is every day all day.

It is absurdly disproportionate.

Sky Sports News now is predominantly political. It is a vehicle to promote minorities and feminism first and a sports channel second.

They had a story about Donald Trump playing golf and the angle was that he was a terrible cheat. They then likened it to Kim Jong Un claiming to be an impossibly good golfer.

It is beyond satire.

Yeah, I remember Sky News and Sports when it was actually watchable. Now you have to be a 'progressive' and at the least a fully signed up neo liberal.

Good grief. As I post, yet another full programme about racism on SSN.

I might have to cancel my subscription soon. It is becoming a joke.

Perhaps you should they obviously don't want your custom.

I'm very surprised you continue to watch it to be honest

Whenever someone uses a playersí salary to justify this sort of thing, I canít help but switch off completely.

The idea that rich people are fair game for any type of abuse, because theyíre rich, is just so silly itís difficult to comprehend.

Whenever someone only reads the first line of a post and then has a flounce, I switch off too.
My point is that the moral high ground can be taken here. Our outrage will change nothing in these overtly racist countries - which is exactly what Montenegro is.
Go there or to any of the surrounding countries and have a pint in the pub.
Talk about black people and you will soon hear the locals' opinions.
