Maybe I’m missing something?
I was of the impression that this whole taking the knee was in support of the BLM movement (not to be confused with actual black lives as the BLM movement don’t seem to care about them) which found prominence as a result of the death of George Floyd at the hands (or knee) of a police officer.
So Football players take a knee for a week or for a season.......... then what? What’ll have changed? Will that have stopped racists being racist?

Your second point WRT Trinidadians of African heritage. I suggest you do a bit of research on that one. Racism is a global issue, and it’s just not whites that are racist.

 

Wouldn't hold my breath on that one.

Even if they all look the same - a mistake like this must mean ritual self-disembowelment for a Guardian columnist like Owen Jones. :death

Welcome to the forum freethinker. You should have joined a few weeks ago, there was a poster called Shull that had very very similar opinions as yourself, you two would have got on like a house on fire. 

Haha! Nobody's that brazen, surely it's just a coincidence?

That is utter hideous. Shooting an unarmed man 7 times in the back from point blank range.

Unfortunately many will find a way to defend the police officer and try to blame the individual.

Agreed or a way to completely miss the point. Reading through the pages of this post, some peoples ignorance on the severity of this issue and the importance of highlighting the problem is shameful

The police were called to a dispute between two white women but end up shooting an unarmed black man in the back 7 times!

I bet the first thought be many is still "what did he do wrong?"

I think the first thought of EVERYONE should be "let's wait and see what happens and not immediately jump to conclusions".

Aye, they who throw the first stone should show some consistency or shut the feck up. :wink:

PS Them dirty police done it.

@freethinker - Boris & Rule Britannia, what a pretty pair - neither of them what they really seem to be. The song was commissioned as a criticism of the then King's naval policy before Britain ruled the waves and was altered to a triumph by the Victorians although now with our rump of a navy in thrall to the USA it may well be appropriate again.

Anyway the battle has already been won - and not by your side!

The Last Night Of the Proms was watched by 3.5 million viewers on BBC One last year, with three-fifths of those watching aged 65 and over.

Outside of the "professionally offended" Alt-Right snowflakes you admire very few people seem to care and I doubt very much if that figure include many "freethinkers". :rolleyes:

One final thought it'll always be The Henry Woods Proms to me.

Didn't see anyone jumping to conclusions about what happened.

I was meaning in general and not necessarily this forum. However, you do have a point.
