And you can stick your taking the knee. Its pathetic…
Okay, three questions: –
a) Why is it “pathetic”?
b) If it is pathetic and ought to be stopped, then what should replace it in the fight against racism and injustice?
Or don’t you think that racism and injustice exist? Or do you accept they exist but don’t give a damn about it?
c) Have you taken part in the Northumbria University survey on athletes as activists, which is currently on the Blast Furnace board?
A: It is pathetic because, although it may well have started as a nice act of solidarity, it has now been going on far too long.
B: It could be replaced with an armband, worn on the left arm so as not to be confused with recent deaths etc.
I am fully aware that racism and injustice exists. But so does many other types of injustice, including bullying, trolling, modern day slavery etc.
I do give a damn, but obviously not to the extent that some of you do.
C: No, and I can’t see myself doing so any time soon.
