Personally I don’t see what’s wrong with sending a message of solidarity to players who belong to an ethnicity which has been victimised and racially abused, which still occurs today. I don’t like the enforced nature of it, but there are positives and negatives to anything. I wonder if it’s needed now, since the point has been made and it is unlikely to change anything in of itself, but if players are for sending a gesture of solidarity with black athletes I am not going to complain. There are bigger things to get worked up by than a knee take.
I certainly have nothing against messages like the Rainbow Laces campaign. There will be gay footballers and gay fans out there. Sending a message to a group who have been bullied and abused for their sexuality is good. Things like this mean a lot to those who are gay, and how does it harm anyone else?
Those who get het up about such things need to get a grip.
