      Just had a look at that, his missus got sacked as well for airing similar views. They both had a funding page set up but they've been taken down by the funding page and now that little sh*t has got a PayPal set up so people can give him money.

      He's become the scrounging b***ard he has a go at online, ironic.

      Let's say I've got extended, not blood, family who think the sun shines out of that cu*ts arse. Winds me up to f**k, there's an agreement that they don't talk to me any more about that kind of sh*t just to keep the peace.

      Very Nasty individual, but unfortunately this is a reaction to BLM. The vast overwhelming majority of people aren't racist but the more the narrative of white privilege is pursued the more some people will be pushed into the arms of these far right racist thugs, that's what scares me.
       

      There is no narrative of white privilege,it's real.You can't see it because you don't want to.Robinson and his ilk need to be driven back under the rock they crawled out from.And any person that goes"into the arms" can f**k off to,even in Burnley the 'poor oppressed white man' is close to 80% of the population,stop whining and blaming those around you struggling to get by and look at the cu*ts running the country as the problem.

      Remember the same shitty arguments from Burnley-supporting reds and why they felt the need to vote BNP.

      There is a very worrying trend at the moment where freedom of speech is being trampled on and no debate is being allowed about racism or other topics like trans rights. For example Bernie Ecclestone, yes I know a difficult character at the best of times, but what did he really say that was so bad, he suggested that quite often Black people can be more racist than White, now instead of asking him to clarify that statement everyone instead instantly jumped on him and denounced him as ignorant and uneducated plus banned him from the sport which he in effect created, this includes that sanctimonious tax dodging multi-millionaire vain little sh*t Hamilton.

      Unless proper open debate is held about these issues then no lasting progress will be made, if you stifle free speech then you are in great danger of pushing a lot of people underground where the monsters lurk.

      Free speech is essential to any functioning society.


      I don't think that anyone denies there are a few racists in society but you don't solve it be denouncing all people as racist and you won't ever solve it without having a proper open discussion and that includes also looking at the Black community because the issues are not 100% caused by racism past or present, to think so is absurd, infantile and misses all the other factors like single parent families and poverty.

      Can you give me examples of systemic racism, I honestly want to understand, you are right that I don't see it although very wrong in suggesting I don't want to so please educate me.

      It's a shame then we don't actually acknowledge freedom of speech in this country, that is America.

      We have freedom of expression!!

      Football commentators must address racial 'bias' says PFA
      This from BBC Sport's Laura Scott :

      There is "evident bias" in some football commentary relating to the skin tone of players, according to a new study.

      In 80 televised games analysed across four European leagues, including the Premier League, players with a lighter skin tone were praised more often for their intelligence and work ethic.

      Meanwhile, those with darker skin tones were "significantly" more likely to be "reduced to their physical characteristics or athletic ability", such as their pace and power.

      The research, conducted by Danish firm RunRepeat in association with the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA), concluded that the findings showed "bias from commentators".

      Wait, so in sport, if someone speaks to your “pace and power” you are being “reduced”?

      Isn’t that what athletics are ultimately about? Athletic ability?

      You could turn this around and say that light skinned players are being “reduced” to their non athletic attributes those being intelligence and the ability to work hard.

      Sounds like confirmation bias to me.
