Seemingly so according to our London based media.

Quote
Englandís all-white starting XI taking a knee before the 6-0 defeat of Northern Ireland highlighted a big problem. It is a problem seemingly getting worse: womenís football is very, very white.

Let's face it - women's football is shite. Utter shite.

I read this this other day. The claim was that black London girls didn't have the athleticism for 11 a side and they only possessed the skill.

It is all shite. This will be more about elitism and nepotism. It was the same with selection for English school teams as it had a SE bias. Money and connections - not ability.

In this case it's not racism. But the knee taking is an even bigger fucking joke in this regard.

If this was simply in The Guardian's 'Comment is free' section it might be a fair point. When it's covered in numerous mainstream news outlets, it's beyond merely shit-stirring.

I class my self on the left and despise all this fucking rubbish. These idiots arenít working class labour voters, they are privileged idiots given a platform to spout shit. Their peers are too scared to say anything because they are scared of being called racists or bigots. Their Salaries are too big to complain. The media is run by cowards who think they have a handle on the countryís beliefs. Corbyns idiot followers were also privileged clowns with a warped ideology.

See Brexit for confirmation, millions of die hard labour voters voted leave.

Spot on, live in their own little echo chambers,  some absolute clowns setting the agenda that they see as important while in the real world people have much more important things to do and worry about

Yes, which is why I don't agree that it's simply journalistic shit-stirring. These racialised agenda-driven articles aren't merely op-eds.

If you take the shit stirring comment away, we basically agree, any it doesnít matter we are both entitled to opinions.

I think they have a point. I'm frequently appalled by the lack of white representation in the Olympic Men's 100m final.

If you can't see it, you can't be it.
