    But not criticising those booing anti-racism is a Tory policy, and gives a green light ( a dog whistle) to racists, which the racists in the 'mob' will greedily snatch at.

    No I didn't, get you facts right. I said people take the choice to do so, whether it is right or wrong is another matter, just like people have the right to kneel.

    Noseall has already explained why JohnD is fed up of answering Bodd's repetitive requests.

    You compared the seriousness, and the illegality of both.
    Taking drugs is illegal, taking the knee, not booing is illegal.
    Sure people have the right to break the law, which potentially has legal implications.
    People have the right to take the knee, or boo, which incurs no potential 'legal' penalties.
    The two issues are not comparable, nor is it a useful analogy.

    Yours was a bad example.
    That's a better example.

    Marcus Rashford...... Has he ever said free school meals for Black kids....... No he sees its not just black families that are struggling......

    I most probley know more than most of the young footballers what injustices are, and you lot for that matter.... I remember my teacher paying for me to go on a school trip because my mum and dad could not afford it. I live in a working class council town... I see all sorts. I've worked on council estates in London... I see Black white and Asian living in poverty. Some houses where kids have missed the pot and piised on the carpet.

    So you're not happy with JohnD's answer, nor Noseall's answer, nor my answer, nor that from the official websites, nor that from Southgate?
    You specifically want IT Minion's understanding of BLM?
    Why? Do you think it'll be any different to anyone else's?

    Bodd has seen the answers.

    He has a point of view.

    He's quite happy with racist murders

    But he doesn't like people protesting against them.

    So poverty is a scurge so why vote for a party that has through Austerity cuts made it even harder for the poor.

    All the above is your virtue signalling nonsense - you say you care but then keep voting for a bunch who definitely only care about themeselves and their mates - Cameraon with Greensil, Hancock with his health contracts.

    I don't have all the answers that's why I ask others like you.why.

    It's unfair to call me a racist... America has got its problems. We know this.... America also has the NBA the NFL and the NLB. 3 of the biggest sports leagues in the world. Don't you think they have broad enough shoulders to cover this one... doesn't mean we don't care.

    The Premier league on the other hand is the biggest football league in the world, possibly the biggest domestic sporting league in the world (With the FA). Don't you think they have backed the wrong cause to protest for, when you have 6500 mainly men that have died building stadiums that they are going to entertain the world in....

    Think about it John we can't fight all the worlds problems but our footballers can stand up for this one.

    But it's true. You proved you're a racist in another thread. Nothing wrong with that - just don't try hide it next time. Having racist views is not illegal.

    What is your logic behind this?

    The players can stand up for any issue they want and agree together on. You righfully can disagree why and the how they do it. But your thinking is always the zero sum game mentality that for them to do A, it denies someone else. It's why you keep voting against your best interests as you get conned into this thinking. This is why you bring up the debunked "all lives matter" retort - it was painfully proven to you how it's rubbish.

    But do keep on going.

    Which is what most people say about BLM.

    And you disagree.

    Is it because they is black?
