    I think the bottom line is, racism is bad (m'kay?) and racism exists ( though some seem to be sceptical on that point, but heyho).

    If I see someone mounting a protest against a bad thing, well I tend to agree with the concept of protesting bad things.
    If I think a specific protest is misguided or ineffective, but the cause worthwhile, I'll maybe say something like "I believe that protest is ineffective and/or misguided".
    I won't boo them for doing it, or get vexed, I'll let them get on with it.

    Anyway, as Aldo says, things that wind up racists please me.

    I don't believe that's why they've changed their minds.
    I think they decided to protest in a different way.
    But due to racists booing England taking a knee, they've decided to show solidarity by joining in.

    Mebbe they like winding up racists.
    I do.

    No
    But try being a football player who doesnít want to wear the strip with the compulsory poppy on it.

    The only one I recall getting slaughtered is the boy McLean, the Irish winger, but there's different agendas in play there.

    I really have no idea, how many have wanted to?

    Nobody ever will know while this ridiculous pressure to confirm continues
