    I said this in another thread, and I'll say it again here. In isolation it would have, at the very best, show a fundamental misunderstanding of what Black lives matter means.

    To arrange to have the banner displayed during high profile event like a Premier League game where the teams are showing solidarity to BLM raises concerns that it might not just have been ignorance of the facts.

    Firstly, all lives do matter. Unfortunately, you're not allowed to venture away from the current bete noir of the SJW without being labelled a racist (much the way JK Rowling has been labelled transphobic for saying only women have periods).

    Mans propensity to hurt and denigrate his fellow man isn't unique to the USA and the Afro-american demographic. There are recent abuses of the Uighurs by the Chinese, the Rohingya by the Burmese and such desecration of indigenous sites in Australia and North Dakota, USA by European settlers. Therefore, all lives do matter, and we shouldn't focus on today's cause celebre.

    However, saying all of that, I don't think this Burnley banner is protesting the lack of media support for anything other than the BLM movement given they are, by and large, inbred backward cunts with a taste for racism.

    I'm not sure there is an agenda. The people that say it should be 'All Lives Matter' are the same people that think equal opportunities means treating everyone the same.

    From the Guardian.

    The stunt, which unfolded above the Etihad Stadium moments after players and staff had taken a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on Monday evening, has been blamed on individuals from a football hooligan firm connected with Burnley.

    They included a supporter associated with former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson. The supporter claimed responsibility online before deleting his social media presence.

    Another figure, who has convictions for football-related violence, was linked to a WhatsApp group where money was said to have been sought to pay for the plane.

    Seems like it may have been racially motivated after all.

    The BBC were creaming in their pants when they saw that banner - Another weeks worth of material to ram down our throat.

    Not at all, you're entitled to your opinion. A bit of reasoning wouldn't have gone amiss but I don't mind. In truth I thought it quite simplistic but it might have helped some that were struggling with the concept.

    Fair enough,

    The 96 weren't split down into colours, they were just the 96. Also I can fully understand why they focused their campaign on the 96, would have been plain stupid for them to try and cover the injustices of everyone.

    That's basically my reasoning
