    What does it say about “ the liberals “ who have accused the company of racism by automatically putting a black boy in a hoodie with the word monkey on it as swinging through the trees in a literal sense. I know loads of people who use the word to describe something as useless or dodgy “ what a monkey ca rnt Danny Dyer is as an example, hung drawn and quartered if it was used to describe a person of colour in that manner but without truly meaning to be racist.

    Yes, it's all about the intent surely, which is often a harder thing to prove when the language is more opaque. However we are now being lead to believe that we all have unconscious biases; and we carry out 'micro-aggressions' - all of which need challenging too.

    If we’re honest the game is still awash with racism, homophobia and corruption throughout the leagues it’s just not in your face how it used to be it’s more covert

    Stuff like kick it out and rainbow laces although with right intentions is pretty pointless it’s all lip service

    It's a storm in a teacup that H&M advert. Poor judgment by whoever picked the model, but at really not worth all of the fall out that has followed. Whether you can say the same about Peter Beardsley remains to be seen. But where do you draw the line between being 'Old School' or not very PC, and being a racist?

    Personally I think a lot of the stuff that gets branded as racism in the West really isn't. Cracking a joke about lads of African descent being better at climbing is of course inappropriate, distasteful and disrespectful, but not really racism in my my eyes. True racism is believing that one ethnicity is fundamentally better than another, or acting in a manor to persecute or victimise another person purely because of their race.

    Down here in SA we have state sponsored racism. We have something called Black Economic Empowerment where companies are incentivised to hire non-whites. It is also impossible to win government tenders unless you have a high BEE rating. But apparently all of that is OK because they are trying to undo the wrongs of the past. Absolutely bonkers in my my eyes.

    They probably didnt have a white kid there for the h&m photoshoot. Its all about diversity now for every single form of advertising.
    The mum was fine with it. People just love being offended, this country is by far the worst on the planet .
    The leader of the free world cant visit ffs, cant buy the mail on a train, cos the country is totally run by far left liberal social justice warriors.

    Yeah sa has gone silly. Its now swung too much and it's the whites that now suffer. My mates gf lost her job as a librarian to a black male. All very well but this gentleman couldn't read, most bizarre but very true.
    I played sunday league football today.

    Clearly I was the best player on the pitch.

    I scored 5 and made 7 last ditch tackles.

    We lost 5-0 but the rest of my team were sh it!

    Think graham rix has done literally everything against the book. He represents Chelsea really well who we know are a club that have and always will be a racist club.
