    I remember the time when the average man/woman could go to a football match on a Saturday afternoon and forget about the shit that was happening in the real world, It didnt matter if you were black, white, brown, yellow or whatever you classed yourself to be.

    We stood shoulder to shoulder together on the terraces, hugged each other when we scored, cried over a post match pint after the game after our rivals scored the last minute winner .
    Now in the states where it is all kicking off after some poor guy death from those who are meant to protect us, Liverpool are now making a political stance against the injustice which is happening in another country.

    I can count on 1 hand where the situation has happened in this country, where a person has died in police custody.

    Do you think Liverpool are right?

    This is just a poll to see what your thoughts are about politics in sport :thumbup:

    Seems like a very “Liverpool” thing to do. It’s not that long ago they were all donning Suarez T-Shirts in support of him calling Evra the N-word.

    Let’s remember that a lot of African Americans in the states helped to vote that arsehole Trump into power.

    The protests began because of police brutality, they're not against Trump.

    Politics affects every aspect of our lives, as is evident from this messageboard. Of course these things are going to be commented on, especially in a sport where the assets are considerably more culturally diverse than the clubs and the fanbase.

    Trump hasn’t come out of this at all well though, with some of his comments about looting especially before it actually started

    Trump had the opportunity right at the start to condemn the police officers involved and say that his administration would fight to eradicate racism and police brutality. That would have sent a powerful signal to American right, and his voters that hang on his every word, much more so than Obama saying the same would have.
    Instead he fanned the flames with his idiotic tweets and now we have the predictable results.
    Still no ones really talking about 100,000 + covid deaths now are they. That’s handy for him isn’t it.

    Just seen on Facebook. White folk taking the knee coming to a village green near you soon.

    I do have plenty of sympathy for anyone affected by racism but this is just “look at meeee”

    Not defending Trump, but I can imagine there are African Americans who voted for trump and still protest against police brutality. In fact they may even have thought he'd help them as he campaigned on not being the status quo.

    WE Already know he’s an absolute idiot but people making this about trump are doing so because of the dislike/hate they have for him, this has been brewing for a very long time and black community had just had enough, whoever is president wouldn’t have changed a thing of what has happened
