Seems my post was deleted. Is that because it included a certain word?
The post was a YouTube video of Stewart Lee on Context free words.
Arrested and thrown in jail, just for posting a Stewart Lee video.
Yes. Myself and @TAFKAP discussed this and are agreed that the 'n' word isn't acceptable in any context.
That's fair enough. I thought I'd get like a notification or something. Thought I'd lost the plot at the time.
My apologies for that.
It may surprise you to learn that Stewart Lee is probably my favourite stand-up, and after seeing the video you posted I ended up watching a load of his stuff on YouTube, even back to some of the Lee and Herring stuff, which I wasn't really a fan of. I even rewatched the whole of Carpet Remnant World.
Not really thought this through have you, the powers that be know plenty about us already. Don't really want to add to it . A few racist trolls online is no need to hand over such power to ANY government . Will it get rid of the racism no will it hand over the power to track us investigate every micro taste political opinion etc to the powers that be .You'll be telling us that we need id cards next ."Governments should be afraid of their people not people afraid of their governments."Racism should be nipped in the bud in schools etc .From someone in his 60's i can tell you it is better than it was just does not feel like it sometimes.
It doesn't help when politicians, world leaders etc politicise race giving ignorant people false validation to be racist.
I dont think clamping down on social media is the answer though, yes it will make some people think twice before posting racist abuse online but it won't change their mindset and will probaby enrage the more extreme to feel like they are being oppressed possibly taking their racism to more extremes.
Thankfully my parents/grandparents brought us up to judge people by their actions, not their race or religion and i think this is where the solution lies, yes institutions, schools etc have an obligation to drive home the message that racism is not acceptable, but ultimately it has to start at home, if you grow up in a household that has racist views, even so called casual racism then you are far more likely to adopt the same attitude.
It will probably take generations to weed out but unfortunately every so often someone or something comes along and resets it back years then the whole thing starts over again.
I read somewhere once that racism will completely disappear due to cross breeding meaning eventually everyone will be the same colour but that could take a thousand years plus and to be honest by then there will either be no people or they will just have replaced it with another reason to be prejudice.
Liverpool angry after Alexander-Arnold and Keïta racially abused online
Just a common thing now unfortunately.
Do these idiots tend to be from here or counties where racism is almost deemed as acceptable or certainly not seen as it ought to be ?
Both - just faceless trolls online who think they can get away with it, and they usually do.
Unfortunately this is straying further away from isolated incidents and more into a morbid expectation after every game.
I'm sure it's both but I'm willing to bet the majority are just trolls, kids or angry betters from Russia, Middle east and Asia where racism is a lot more common
Shameful, I'm of the opinion that a lot of these racial comments come from either disguised opposition fans or random wind-up merchants. I'm sure you get the odd weirdo but with all these cases across all of these teams, I doubt many of the comments made are from actual fans.
Rangers boycotting social media too along with Swansea.
Maybe be the start of many ?
They are playing catch-up. I've been boycotting twitter since 2006.
Would be a help if a fair proportion of Rangers' fanbase were removed as well tbh.
