“Papers fuel racism”

Raheem Sterling:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46498849

Do the papers have an agenda against Sterling? Or young black players in general?

This was something we discussed over the summer when the World Cup was on, and there was a fairly mixed response.

This is a good article though and I really hope Sterling pursues it, because the mainstream media fuelling racism is a problem which spans far beyond just football.

SPOTY's racist.

actually, whereas I think the newspaper stuff is a load of nonsense, I genuinely do think that voting in SPOTY does reflect a degree of racism in the population.

then again, the bbc seem to have countered that with their selection of some of the finalists, which arguably seems to be an attempt to create winners from minority groups.

in doing this, are they implicitly acknowledging the public's inherent racism and trying to balance it out ?

is that justified.

tricky one. a more genuine conversation imo though than the newspaper contention.

You've been on this thread yet unable to answer most questions put to you (that's running away).

You choose to not listen, as we saw when you didn't read the Times article and then said you won't agree with it anyway (that's shows that you only want to read things that confirms what you believe, not anything that may challenge it).

You ask other users to provide things (i.e. Links, questions) for you and then ignore them when they do or ask them to post it over again, and again.

Instead, you type in abuse as a response and expect others to post the questions again. Something you could do yourself. Or you could have answered them when they came up instead of spouting abuse as a response.

I'm not going to be repeating my questions like other posters have. We've seen how you respond to them in this thread. You can use your own time to find the questions and, if you are able to, answer them.

You couldn't even answer my question. And, as MBL said, you calling that to anyone is a joke. All you were able to do is fail answering questions and points raised and resorted to name calling since you were unable to reply in a sensible manner. Its why I called you stupid. Your lack of intelligence is on display throughout the thread. If you have friends, you're probably the idiot one of the group. But I seem to doubt you can hold any kind of relationship.

Plenty of friends thank you.

I like the way you feel that you have to answer this question, but not the others.

sorry. joke in poor taste. can think of a much more likely candidate. would be a certain irony to it though, albeit that there's no grounds to suspect it is.
