Racism

A Twitter spokesperson said they’ve removed more than 1,000 tweets and suspended an undisclosed number of accounts that perpetuated racist attacks against the players. British police have also opened an investigation into the “offensive and racist” social-media posts.

This is in relation to yesterday's football.

Has the time come to closed down Twitter, banned it from our shores?

Re: Racism

Time to ban this "racism" nonsense. It's gone FAR FAR to far.

Re: Racism

No I don't think it's time to ban Twitter. It's time to face facts that people should be confronted with their prejudices and encouraged to be more tolerant. It doesn't go away just because you ban a social media platform. After all wasn't the Marcus Rashford wall mural defaced? At least this brings it out into the open.

Oh I didn't hear about that. I only saw beeb six o'clock news where they muttered something about racism without really explaining what's going on.

Yes I think I heard this on the radio. A doodle of a penis was spray painted over his mouth. Now covered over with cardboard. Then some members of the public put hearts over the cardboard.

Re: Racism

It wasn't a very big penis so perhaps the artist was doing a self-portrait.

Re: Racism

I honestly fail to see what is blatantly obvious, races of people are NOT equal one to another.

Hi

I object to being called a Honky, it works all ways.
