Its just fuelling racism and totally the wrong thing to do
i dont think this would happen in football or rugby if fans were in the ground
Career criminal or not non of us condone what happened to the guy in the USA at the hands of the police but its time to let this go and stop all the media coverage.

Stop all the media coverage of anti-racism protests or stop all the media coverage of racism?

I think bonaire meant stop all the biased coverage, BLM is important, so too are those that feel it has been hijacked to try and cause violence and unrest, as mich as I hate the right wing viewpoint, they have as much right to protest as BLM, but they get a much more negative narrative, especially from the BBC.

Probably both, until such time that everyone can sit down and discuss all the issues in an open and adult way.

Black lives matter, as a statement and a cause, as opposed to Black Lives Matter as an organised movement, being one of the main ones. Every person on the planet should be able to support the statement, but unfortunately The Movement has more, far reaching aims.

The biased coverage is getting out of hand.
The fact that flying a White lives matter banner near to Burnleys stadium yesterday is deemed to be racist and now subject to a police investigation sums it up.
As far as sport is concerned i believe players would not have been drawn into this had the public been able to attend matches.
It was all too easy for players.managers,referees and staff in attendance at recent matches to kneel in an empty stadium without fan reaction.
Also lets get players names back on their shirts and draw a line under this now before it escalates any further.

Again, I agree. Why are the Police investigating, are they going to investigate the multiple churches I walk or cycle past that have quotes from the Bible on boards outside, or Government anti-smoking messages, or in fact, anything that expresses opinion?
