    Yes... doesnít mean that you need to be invisible. I publicly show my support. I live in a small town of 20,000 people where people see that. You live in New Jersey

    SKY are clueless, giving QPR of all teams a hard time.
    L
    This is a club that changed the historic name of their ground, to that of a murdered black youngster.

    Have possibly done more than any business or football club, to help with Grenfell.

    Plus, have a black Director of Football.

    Generally the best way of stopping racism is just by not being racist?
    Would work well if people were actually aware that they were racist. Some people think they're not racist just because they don't hate minorities.

    If the grounds were at regular capacity’s supporters would start booing, and all this taking the knee would stop.

    Reason being the vast majority of supporters already abhor racism, and don’t want this rammed down our throats week in week out, with the BLM fist in the air.

    Plus, sport for many of us is about escapism, not political statements.

    This will never change racism, it needs to come from the way parents bring up the children of future generations.

    The fact some supporters would boo any attempt to highlight and promote anti racism says it all. 🙄

    The fact is most people that have a real problem with this are middle aged white men with fragile identity and egos.

    The sport isn't where we should raise things like this line is rubbish too. We need to raise it as a discussion point across the whole of society

    They don't have a black owner though.

    I think it does an awful lot. I'm glad you have no issue with it but why on Earth would it cause division? I mean it's not like having a red hot poker shoved up your arse!

    Now if the slogan had been "ONLY Black Lives Matter" I'd agree with you totally. Just like if the slogan had been "ONLY White Lives Matter". So, all in all, it's a very worthwhile campaign, I'm sure you'd agree.

    Isn’t he ‘BAME‘ though, born in Malaysia.

    I’m sure that qualifies fir the current narrative.

    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.

    Need to move on now , lots of folk irritated , lots of things wrong in the world.

    So why exactly are they doing it?

    Because of American career criminals?

    Here’s a suggestion as regards the statistical misnomer that the American police are victimising and murdering black people.

    * Don’t commit crimes

    * If you do commit crimes and the police have to address the issue, don’t resist.

    Here’s another statistical fact that doesn’t fit the current narrative. In America a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to lose their lives at the hands of a black person, as a black person is to lose their lives to a Police officer - FACT!

    Google and read a few articles in the Wall Street Journal on the subject, in June.
