    Watched an English PL

    game last week and of course they took the knee.

    Given 16 out of the 22 players were black or mixed race,and they were probably earning between £100k and£200k a week, I found it ironic that they were protesting against white privilege.

    The second that racism stops they can stop doing that.

    I suppose you could argue that this is virtually the same as saying that when mental illness stops you can stop building psychiatric hospitals.

    How is the taking the knee thing not being called out as insensitive and offensive? The whole current BLM stuff all started because a guy was killed by a cop kneeling on his neck! I know the taking the knee stuff started in 2016 and it's dumb btw but right now isn't it a bit insensitive for all these sports stars to be doing this considering how George Floyd was killed!

    They will get booed when fans are allowed back in stadiums and the clubs will backtrack.
