Well done, Wakefield

I recorded the games from last Friday & Saturday, just watched the Wakefield/Wigan game.

Well done Wakefield for "standing tall" before the game.

Ditto some of the catalan players.

Agreed this kneeling down is embarrassing and unnecessary. It is going on too long and all lives matter to be honest.

Another contender for thread of the year.......good to know the "pious" can tell others what they should & shouldn't be doing.

Embarrassing & not particularly subtle.
Good to see Ratboy missing the point as usual. Nobody is saying all lives don't matter (Though would be interesting to hear both of your thoughts on all the people try to cross the channel!), it's that black lives matter too.

Then why is the the movement not called "ALL LIVES MATTER" . The black power salute  should be banned. Nobody on this thread has told others what to do except you good self of course.

Because for this particular movement (Definitely more so in America than over here!) parts of the system are set up to not only not help black people, but also actively disadvantage them.

The best analogy I've seen is that if one of the houses on your street was on fire you wouldn't start shouting at the fire brigade "all houses matter".

There are loads and loads of examples of do-gooders jumping on bandwagons these days, just not in this case in my opinion.

And why is it "Well done for standing tall"?? Nobody is being forced to do anything? You can kneel if you want, or stand if you want, and it absolutely should be that way or what's the point.

It is interesting that some of the most discriminated people in the world are Muslims since 9/11.
Do their lives not matter or do they matter less? One million Muslims are currently in concentration camps in China, yet the world of sport kneel because of a scumbag criminal was killed by the police in America.

I still believe in all lives matter and Dawn Butler lied in her interview says it all. Esther Krauke a lovely black lady on a you tube interview is a must watch, as shows some black people are terrible racists too and causing trouble . Unfortunately BBC and Sky just so biased and reported what they want you to hear. I work with Napalese and Fijian soldiers and they think all lives matter too. This BLM group do have some terrible racist like EDL.

Of course they do, but that isn't the point of this movement, or almost all of the protesters!
Absolutely agree with everything else in the above, especially the ridiculously biased media coverage, which unfortunately just seemed to be pandering to certain stories/overly pushing an agenda. Perfect example being the protests where their choice of language was disgusting, as was their cropping of certain photos to help push said agenda. Dangerous game, and I would say the BBC is now almost as bad as Fox.
