If you're referring to my post, because at the time there weren't many photos had been released (because SkyBet apparently broke the 5pm embargo after which photos were supposed to be released) so this was the only one I'd seen that clearly had Doyle in it and Audrey was asking if he was there. No other subtext, no need to get triggered.

Even in a thread that celebrates us being champions, there has to be a cunt that acts like a cunt. What a cunt.

Can we just ignore the cunt and focus on being champions instead?

Fantastic image. Really encapsulates a unified solidarity and togetherness of the squad. Can't really see why anyone would get a little snowflakey about it. It's a fucking awesome shot.

He's on about Pauld's post when they are kneeling.

Post by: bamboonoshop on Friday, June 26, 2020, 22:12:00
Actually the only "criticism" of the image is the minor oversight the photographer made. For that shot all players in the frame should be kneeling on the same knee. Would have more symmetry and be a better composition as they are all raising the same hand (except the guy far right (hmm), at the back). Just looks a little untidy. Wider shots, not so much a problem.

Having said that, getting 16+ footballers to follow direction is probably much easier to be a little more relaxed, after all you want them for it to not feel like a shoot and to just enjoy the moment; they're definitely doing that.

Calm your beans man. One person moaned due to be a bit out of touch, that's their issue.

Does someone who reproduces a montage of the last time we won L2 sound like a cunt who moans about us winning it again? Nope, I've been (likely we all have) waiting for this day for a good while.

We're fucking Swindon. We are the fucking champions.

Especially so because we have a "double figures" amount of footballers on our professional books this last season with black heritage.

Reid, Bancroft, Fryers, Woolery, DJ, Anderson, Grant, Muskwe, Hope and REG also the ones who have left Toums, McGlashan, Zakuani and Sanokho.

Chris Kamara was the first black player to make a first team appearance for Swindon Town, scoring on his League debut soon after signing for the club in August 1977. He went on to total almost 300 games during two spells at the County Ground.

If you expand the definition to BAME, then Power gets in as he's Irish.

You've misunderstood the term BAME: it is specifically used to refer to non-white minorities, that is the whole point of it. So it may include non-white Irish or Jewish players but would not include Cox or Morris

Not so much a misunderstood term. It is an adapted term and everyone (unless under somewhere monolithic) understands why it has and the usage of BAME. Like all language and acronyms, they are ever evolving. What one meant some time ago and it's context can be expressed entirely different today. See my post (as it happens) regarding the word "Negro". A word such as gay, meaning and use is much different to the original use.

I don't understand why people have to be categorized, will never help us move forward.


Title: Re: People kneeling
Post by: bamboonoshop on Saturday, June 27, 2020, 21:45:42
There will always be categorisation, look at your passport? For as long as people look different, practice another faith, are a different gender and so on it will exist. Surely you want to know you exist? By design we categorise ourselves, even if that is merely as a human or inhabitant of earth. You still separate yourself from other species or identifying a planet you are on.

I've always found the categorisation argument a little moot because we all do it. For ourselves. People want to be BAME and proud. The issue isn't about people from that (or any) background wanting to move on and celebrate their own heritage as equally as anyone else, it is that some people do not want them to be able to  :)

Here's what the Jews say about Covid and disproportional BAME deathrate....

"However, these statistics also affect the Jewish community, and we’re being left out of the conversation — falling through the cracks of race — again. According to the Race Relations act, Jews are a protected ethnic minority in the UK, being classified as a BAME community. However, Jews are often mistaken for a solely religious, not ethnic, minority by the general public and corporations, such as the BBC (ּBritish Broadcasting Corporation). This was apparent when Savid Javid was hailed as the first BAME Home Secretary in the UK, when there had previously been Jewish Home Secretaries.

Despite being 0.3% of the total population, the latest reports state Jews make up 2.1% of COVID-19 fatalities. We are over four times more likely to die of COVID-19 than the general public.

As I said there's some misunderstanding of the term, which is largely a catch all to look into deprivation, discrimination and inequality. So yes, I don't think your mistake makes you an anti-Semite.

The fact you have used that help to post something totally outdated and very knowingly provocative just shows the measure of the kind of person you are. I can only hope that any children or grandchildren you have grow up to have very opposing views to yours. The world doesn't need people like you and it's thanks to people like you that we have to have these movements regarding rights and equality. I bet your wife is fucking terrified of you.

What exactly are BLM in the UK actually looking to change? As far as I am aware the laws in the UK are the same for everyone,  there are equality laws in place too. Perhaps it's the attitude of prejudiced individuals they want to change?

BLM is a pretty disparate movement and was absolutely necessary and correct when started in the USA.  Palestine has f.a. to do with BLM.  In the UK, it has clearly been taken over by the usual assorted far left and Corbynista types.  They are entitled to their views but they are unhelpful to the original aims of BLM.

On the other hand, there is a certain type of right wing racist (more cerebral than dear old Mother Brown who seems trapped  in his 16 year old persona) which seeks to undermine anti racist views by confounding being broadly anti-Israel  with being anti-semitic.  Other forms of racism are then discredited.  

You are either anti ALL racism - or a c unt.  IMO, natch. ;)

Firstly for the 10,00000,00000 time on here BLM is not a group with an overarching objective either in the UK or USA, its a disparate banner to cover a wide range of interested parties and individuals, thus any message put out via social media accounts should be given as much weight as nonsense posted on here, nothing to stop me going on Twitter now and setting up a BLMUK account and posting whatever shit I like, much as there is evidence in the UK of far right groups doing just that to tey and discredit the cause.

On a more personal level whilst supporting their aims, the whole BLM movement has served a much more useful purpose in smoking out the closet racists on social media, one former friend has now flounced off Facebook (probably in favour of parler) after being called out by various people.

I'm sorry, but can't we ban these racist fucks completely, 7 days is a token measure.

Give 'em enough rope to hang themselves. Give warnings, then incremental increases in bans. No complaints then, fair's fair.

They have been banned for 7 days, a repeat offense makes the ban permanent.

My Mum used to say 'If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all!'

I think a lot of people on the internet could learn from this.

You do however bumble around like Boris, if only had the same hair you would be a dead ringer.

I suggest some people would occasionally do well to take a few days' break from this forum. Some seem obsessed & comment on here several times per day. Why not dip in every few days? It's just a hobby, surely?

It's actually not a bad shout. We live in a nation that that votes on naming a research vessel Boaty McBoatface which shows there is some harmless humour in our society. I know it got changed but you can't really argue with it being changed to Dave Attenborough (well you can but it would be a bit cuntish).

I do like pubs that are animal based with another random word. Like the Frog & Sprocket. It shouldn't work but it flows, ya know  :pint:

Edit: That got me thinking about the band Toad The Wet Sprocket. Maybe that's where I got it from?  :hmmm:
