Taking the knee Yes/No - do you agree Vote

Let’s have a vote instead of a conversation as seems like these articles always descend into arguments so let’s have simple vote to get the general consensus and opinion of the people on JA.

Don’t want it to look like I’m trying to get 5 stars so let’s use the following

4 <stars> If you don’t agree with players still taking the knee

2 <stars> if you do agree with players still taking the knee

I think the problem is this whole taking a knee thing has become a complete and utter farce and circus now, and Football is getting dragged into too much political BS that it doesn’t need. Originally I was all for it, but after a few weeks it kind of got a bit silly and went from being serious and highlighting a problem to becoming like a joke charade and facade and it’s been a bit killed to death now and I don’t really get the point in it and I don’t believe the players or clubs still want to do it but they feel they will look bad to a minority of snowflakes / fans if they come out and say they’re going to stop, they then think these minority of snowflakes will cause uproar by lambasting them for not taking the knee.

So yeh tricky one but think the reality is it’s been way too long know it’s been kneeled to death and football doesn’t need constant politics, this is football, gestures like we do with minute of silences are excellent, you make your point raise awareness and then you move on, you don’t carry on for like a year or however long it’s been with the same gesture because it just becomes embarrassing for all quite frankly but I don’t think anyone has the balls to just be honest and say they don’t want to do it anymore because they don’t want the snowflakes of the modern world to be in uproar

But let’s see what the general consensus is on JA

Vote away chaps and have a great weekend and come on the ENGLAND OIII OIII !!!

Quite telling how the voting on here has gone.

Reminds me of Brexit. People screaming racist at people when they don't agree.

Think I’ve seen one poster do that. You still have trouble comprehending I see

Bolloxs, brexiteers were forever being branded racists, the likes of Hector and Sizzle were but 2.

Just look at the same article on the Tottenham board almost everyone sympathetic to the booing was called a racist...100s of examples in that particular thread... Anyone not following the woke way is racist, so much so the word has completely lost its potency.

As I awoke one morning,
when all new things are born,a robin perched upon my sill,to greet the coming dawn,
I arose and listened for a while,
and then slipping from my bed,
I slowly closed the window,
and crushed it's f'kin head .

Sorry about that lads,I love robins,but can't stand f'kin wokes !

Of course BLM is a divisive political movement. It’s supposed to be. It’s combating the very concept that institutional racism doesn’t exist when there is so much evidence that it does. Funnily enough, people don’t like being told that the very foundations on which their society is built is unfairly balanced towards one set of people. So let it be divisive and hopefully enough people wake up to the idea that something needs to change to help people who would be left to suffer if the people who are ignorant to the realities of the world are allowed to meander into apathy.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a happy co-incident that the founders are all trained marxists and have set BLM goals that align with a Marxist approach of undermining the West then.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, you really misunderstand the whole idea of what they stand for.

This is your friend ^^
----------------------------------------------------------------------

So to summarise, yes the founders are Marxists
----------------------------------------------------------------------
BLM Founders living in x million dollar mansions surely can't be Marxists ... Perhaps opportunists at worst.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Marxists are like socialists, they all want to share their misery until they hit it big that is.

In what way?

Can you explain what ‘wokeness’ is in your own words, and why it is akin to a plague, please?

In essence, a plague cares only about itself.
Virtue signalling doesn't count. in the real world

So you’re arguing that ‘woke’ people only care about themselves?

Agree I feel like sadly it’s got to the point where it’s actually doing more harm for reducing racism than good, it’s just turning into constant arguments and debates about taking the knee every game. We are not talking about reducing racism anymore and how we can tackle it it’s all the talk about the knee and if it’s right or wrong every single game every single week

And as I said originally I think it was good but now it’s just turning racism or making it look like a joke which it shouldn’t be and is totally wrong
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Racism will not end before we stop talking about it all the time.
