Really hope our lot do the same. And I知 not racist.

So you would be happy with our club getting global publicity for booing an anti-racist gesture would you?

And I知 not sure you get to qualify your own statements like that.

The footballers take the knee in support of Black Lives Matter. BLM. Why do you want to water that down? Why do you think you are privileged enough to insist that the words start with lower-case letters? Dont black lives deserve capitalising?

That is why they had the words on the back of their shirts. That is why they have the banners in the grounds.

BLM is political. And that is what the kneeling is about. Honestly, you whiteys are always taking things from other cultures and twisting them up. No wonder they hate us.

 


Now on GAB @Matov. Come and help build something.

Utter nonsense. Taking the knee is that matter is a show of direct support for Black Lives Matter. It is all part of the wider campaign of support the Premier League has organised.

Taking the knee is in direct support of BLM. What part of that do you struggle to comprehend?

It's your claim that's the nonsense. Few people are even aware that there is a political movement which uses "Black Lives Matter" as it's title and exploits the empathy that has developed over the events earlier this year.

It's the sentiment that black lives matter, and not that movement, that is involved and the players are uniting in a joint show to show they all care.

Whether it makes things better or has run its course, are other considerations, but the motivations of those involved ought not be questioned and those who boo them deserve all the condemnation they are getting.

This is precisely the reason most will not.

Dare I say Millwall are the only set of fans with the b***ocks to do it and to conclude the sentiments are limited solely to the supporters of that club is at best naive.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

This is beyond delusional. What did the players have on the back of their shirts? What did the banners inside the footgrounds proclaim? Black Lives Matter. BLM. s***, I think its even trade marked.

You really are the worst kind of white person. Me, I loathe BLM and I am sure I am not on their Kwanzaa card list either but at least I have enough respect to acknowledge them as a active political movement.

But you? You cannot even do that, instead trying to minimise its impact. Why on earth would you do that?

Thanks for confirming that this crap is perpetuated by spreading fear.

Think like us or else. How evolved.

It's actually worse than that. They don't even want to acknowledge what the kneeling is all about. Instead wanting to turn it into some feel good Pepsi advert where we all kneel and weave daisys into each others hair.

As opposed to wanting to defund the police, f*** up the family structure even more than it is and make us all work on collective farms and s*** before starving to death.

It is BLM. Not blm. And shame on anybody who refuses to at least acknowledge that. The real racists in all of this.

But most will not do it because they know it痴 wrong. Not because the Palace PR team have had a quiet word and said 惣ou know what mate, this might not be a good look for the brand.

You can not be in agreement with it completely and what it stands for. But to actively boo it is to say you believe the opposite in what it is for.

Dan, you are either winding everyone up or you have a very simplistic view of what is going on. You choose to ignore that virtually everyone on here has said they support booting out racism but you still bang on about support for an organisation that generates more hate than it does reconciliation. Have you ever stopped to think that the players should reconsider how they approach booting out racism so it appeals to everyone rather than something which is currently dividing opinion.

Again, ask any of the players doing it if the above is what they are doing it for.
