Thread: Sky making a big thing of QPR not taking the knee

    Sky making a big thing of QPR not taking the knee

    Watched the game yesterday and they mentioned it plenty of half time and full time. Tune in to SSN and they are talking it on there.

    I don't get the problem, was alright for a match when returning, even until the end of last season but are we making it an official part of the start of every match until someone says not to.

    I'm staunchly against any form of racism and fight against it daily but if QPR don't think taking the knee is the best way to display their support then that's their perogative.

    I can't for one moment understand why someone would fail to do it. Do these snowflakes think they'll get cramp or something? I personally think everyone should do it persistently until real change is brought about. And that includes politicians.

    It's made all the headlines it needed, it has just become the norm now, don't think the act alone will really add much to the cause.

    QPR have done it every match after lockdown and are probably one of the more diverse clubs out there.

    If people want to do it fine, but I don't get the media frenzy when someone chooses not to.

    How can you measure something that is immeasurable

    Yes every day, twice a day; it's improving my knee muscles.

    I get the media frenzy. I just don't understand why people wouldn't want to do it. It costs nothing and no, it doesn't induce cramp.

    Why would you want to?

    Generally the best way of stopping racism is just by not being racist?

    Of course you're right but not everyone isn't a racist, particularly some governments and institutions. To my mind it's a simple, free of charge gesture which keeps the issue in the limelight and gently pressurises people to change behaviour. I just think it's a no brainer.

    I agree. Even though it is regarding an American issue.

    Hopefully, weíll see similar protests for the uighurs and the Palestinians and child sexual trafficking........ but of course we wonít.

    American/Zionist controlled media and social media tell the western worldís masses what to think and how to act.

    Or do they?

    Is he televised to a world audience? And do most of his co-workers do it? The whole point of taking knee is to highlight racial injustice. No point in doing it if no-one is looking.

    I can't see why clubs are still doing it. It's like a learned behaviour or conditioning. I agree with the other poster above who said why don't we do it for other causes? You don't have to do that in front of an empty stadium where there's nobody watching, and do other occupations do it?

    How do you choose to highlight it personally?

    I think itís more people are afraid not to do it now.

    It's an empty gesture.

    I donít think think it does anything at all.

    I have no issue with people doing it, but I actually think itís counter productive by causing division.

    Well, we're all taking about it. So it must be doing something.
