    Nicely dressed up-What's your point? This is your way of saying that Taking a knee is bullshit, isn't it?

    I think he's saying "all lives matter", which is just another way to not acknowledge racial injustice.

    But I can't be sure.

    I think that he's comparing abuse in the workplace with systemic violence towards a group of people, due to their skin colour. Basically, he's sort of referencing the Health and Safety at Work act, i think. As for the Murder of Jews by the Nazis, well, there was some progress on that front. Germany was annexed and occupied with a depleted military and the geneva convention was brought into play which meant that countries that signed up to it, had to take refugees and those fleeing persecution. Although Anti Semitism and hate towards the jewish community still exists-At least LOM is an advocate for those who are seeking refuge in our country-Good man.

    It's a bit like interpreting the paintings of Van Gogh just before he cut off his ear but your guess is as good as anyone's when Jack Daniels is in full swing I suppose.

    Anyone else trying to decipher we have two posts. One of a despicable massacre of Jews by the Nazis a and the other an old BBC report suggesting the current government will legislate for higher penal crimes against anyone assaulting emergency workers.

    The crime of genocide and the second post about crimes against emergency workers I presume are a juxtaposition to the crimes that led to people having enough and taking a knee.

    As he started the thread perhaps he could clarify?

    I don't know what LOM is attempting, rarely do i understand what his point is. I'd get more clarification out of a bowl of Alphabet soup.

    It's common place these days It seems. Even posters like Nugent who have made racist remarks on football forums numerous times, regularly take the knee these days. Although his is usually done in the toilets on Clapham common.

    You're quite right of course Dorcus. It's not a subject to make light of. Racism is abhorrent in all it's forms, and if some people feel they want to kneel down so that other people can see that they do indeed recognise that racism is abhorrent, then I think they should do and people shouldn't get cross about it.

    I'm not sure I understand you LOM, what's the death of 33,000 Ukrainian Jews got to do with taking the knee, or paradoxically has it got everything to do with it?

    This reminds me of the Burnley “white lives matter”.

    Very infantile and slightly worrying.

    Why couldn’t this poster just post a thread on this event in the Ukraine without comparing it to BLM ? Does an injustice to both. V offensive.

    Ethnic cleansing ?

    Genocide ?

    The white settlers did it to the red indians

    The white Australians did it to the aborigines

    The Russian Red army did it to millions of Jews and Polish people as they forced the nazis back

    What the hell has racism got to do with whether you're working class or not?

    You're turning into an overall police matter. I'm talking about racism in general and the fact George Floyd was killed was the spark that ignited this.

    The fact people are trying to put a spanner in the works by focusing on how people are choosing to raise their concerns about racism just proves to me how much racism exists.

    If sportsmen kneeling offends you more than someone dying from their neck being knelt on, or racism in general then I really don't know what to say.

    Well Elton John once said "Soros seems to be the hardest word". There's two for starters!

    Anyway this thread called Taking A Knee is supposedly about Jewish genocide in the Ukraine and attacks on emergency workers according to the guy that posted it originally so try to stay on message.......whatever the hell that is!

    Soros is indeed evil, unfortunately the spoilt brat millennials cant see the wood for the trees. The most narcisstic generation ever seen
