Racism in football - is there a problem?

Recommended Posts

Hades, might have got me misreading that. Was meaning it's same old tiresome level of racism. Not that the claims that it's racist are tiresome.

 

Bored of seeing cunts trying to explain away racism as a bit of fun.

 

Sorry, mate. If someone could rep to cancel out they'll also be owed a rep.

I’ve not heard the song. Does it negatively prejudge or discriminate against a person based on their race? Furthermore does it state or imply that the race of the singer is superior to the player for reasons based on that racial prejudice or discrimination?

 

If it does, it’s racist.

No one is hating on Lukaku cause of the colour of his skin, therefore it's not racism.

 

This type of pc shit does no one no favours.

How about asking the player what he thinks about this chant and how it makes him feel,he may like it? Chanting about eating dogs and people rummaging through bins,as said previously is fair game though?

I'm baffled as to how some of you lot don't see "Hahaha, he's black so he must have a big cock!" as racial stereotyping and therefore, by definition, racist.

 

Then again I've read Faneeee's views on gender issues and he clearly lives in Alf Garnett's 50's Britain so he's simply perpetuating his ignorance here.

A big "Super White Army" banner was taken down at Prenton Park prior to the England v Russia match the other night. It was probably (well, almost certainly) removed as part of the general corporate sanitising that the FA do for England games. (Can't have any input from fans compromising our brand!) Predictably enough, everyone on Twitter is assuming that it's PC gone mad; that the FA decided the word "white" was offensive and that's why they removed it.

 

Stupidly enough, the FA have declined to comment, so the racist shitspreaders are free to keep repeating their dangerous paranoid fantasies.

True this.

 

Likewise, when you shout "Get your tits out, love!" in town with your mates, it's not offensive, it's a compliment to a lady.

...still the song (and the fact that Lukaku has asked them to stop singing it) should be good ammo to use against the Mancs.

As a white middle-class male, I can categorically state there is no racism in football.

There's a thread on redcafe on this, popped over to see how their fans tried to make out this wasn't racist. Some pearlers on there including this

 

"It is true though that black people and African people statistically have bigger manhoods on average. It maybe is a stereo type but it is based on statistics. The same way that black people tend to be naturally more physically dominant than white people."

 

 

So there you go it's not racist their fans have studied academic papers before singing it

    • Trent Alexander-Arnold said that resilience is the key element that has made Liverpool reach the next level.

      When you are looking to achieve the ultimate prize as a team and developing your game on a personal level, there are bound to be some bumps along the way.

      The Reds have certainly suffered their share of heartbreak in the past few years, firstly in the Champions League final to Real Madrid in 2018, and then falling agonisingly close to ending the long title drought last season.

      But the old adage that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger would be something that Alexander-Arnold abides to.

      The Official site (via Premier League Productions) reported the Right-back as saying:

      “The players that we have in our side have all had failures before, we’ve all had setbacks and knockbacks.

      “We’ve really bounced back from there and got to where we are now and where we are as a team.

      “The biggest example of that is probably the fact that we lost the Champions League final the season before and were able to use that as motivation to get back there and win it the next season.

      “It’s something a lot of teams aren’t capable of, but we’ve showed that we are and we’re able to get better from disappointment.”


        The evergreen James Milner also related a story in the lead-up to the unforgettable Champions League semi-final triumph against Barcelona that speaks along the same lines.

      "I think the first game wasn't a fair result of the game but football isn't fair at times and when you've got that guy [Messi] on the other team it's very hard to run as fast as you can as well with your legs closed as I found out. He can make you look stupid.

      “We had to pick ourselves up from that first leg - we had Newcastle away at the weekend going for the league, it was a tough game, they fought all the way and we scored late, hoping Manchester City would drop points in the next game then Vinnie [Vincent Kompany] scores a once in a lifetime slice into the top corner so we have to pick ourselves up again against all the odds really.

      "It was one of those special nights at Anfield, the atmosphere was unbelievable and set the tone at the kick-off.

      “Put all that together with what had happened a few days before, the Newcastle game, the defeat and having to pick ourselves up within six days says a lot about the club and the fans as well but the team and the character within it."

      Another prime example of the resilience is how they have begun the new league season.

      It has been a common trait of previous Liverpool sides in the last 10-15 years to have a big dip in form after coming so close and you only have to look at 2009/10 and 2014/5 for proof of that.

      But this squad is on a mission, it is certainly not satisfied with what has achieved so far and wants to be the best it can be.

      While there is a awful lot of water to go under the bridge, as a fan you just have to be awfully proud about what we have become, and what we aspire to be.

    • Was fortunate to watch the game live last week when in the Rockies. Was discussing the game as we were driving through the hills and the slide rule pass Milner had sent through to Mane.   Was made up to pass this sign mid-conversation!    I think the icons explain the pass: * Continental Divide in class * Mane stood next to defender. * Pass allowed Mane to stroll away from the defender and be 500ft clear in no time * Kodak moment.
    • It’s maddening how we consistently play so badly there, our players touch goes to shit, people taking two or three two many touches, lofted shite aimless balls. Our front 3 have been consistently brutal there. We have nothing to fear here, they’re absolutely hopeless and it absolutely turmoil. Need front 3 to deliver here and ensure Trent and Robbo see as much as ball as possible and we’ll beat these. If we can score in first 30 I expect us to win comfortably, they will implode.
