I don't think it is racist, it is crass and weird, and it is a sign that they are probably racist that they are so facinatied with the colour of the baby of a mixed race couple. But using choclate and milk to refer to the colour of people themselves isn't racist.

I suppose technically, it's not a racist comment. However, it is a comment only a racist would make. Or someone with severe learning disabilities.

Am I missing something glaringly obvious, or are you just making a racist comment about black people all looking alike?

It is indeed the fault of the Irish Herald making a glaring mistake by using a picture of some rapper instead of the footballer they are referring to. Mind you, it is sometimes difficult to tell people apart.

A newspaper in Ireland has reported on Romelu Lukaku's imminent transfer from Everton to Man Utd using a picture of Stormzy.
It's largely manufactured outrage; Stormzy himself has commented on their likeness on several occasions.

>The Football Association has charged former Sutton keeper Wayne Shaw with breaching betting rules after he ate a pie in the FA Cup loss to Arsenal.
>Shaw resigned after being shown eating the pie during February's fifth-round defeat, after a bookmaker had offered 8/1 odds on him doing so.
>The 45-year-old has been charged with intentionally influencing a football betting market, and improper conduct. He has until 18:00 BST on Friday, 21 July to respond to the charges.
The poor guy just wants to earn a crust and he's been driven out of the sport he loves.

Grimsby Town fans asked 'to show bras' to Stevenage security
Female football fans were asked to show their bras to stewards during security searches, a supporters' group has said.
Grimsby Town fan group the Mariners Trust made the allegation in a letter to Stevenage FC after the two sides met on Saturday. It said some fans wearing underwired bras were also asked by stewards at the Lamex Stadium if they could feel them.

It is one of the oddest football stories I've heard for a while. They also banned inflatables toys - I mean wtf?

>Mark Sampson, the manager of the England women’s football team, is alleged to have told one of his black players to make sure their Nigerian relatives did not bring Ebola to a game at Wembley, according to extraordinary new evidence the Guardian can present as part of the Eni Aluko hush-money case.
>Aluko tells this newspaper that the Football Association has known about the comment – described in one letter from the Professional Footballers’ Association to the governing body as a “racist joke” – since November 2016 but chose to ignore it despite a previous allegation that Sampson had asked a mixed-raced player in another England get-together how many times she had been arrested.
>Aluko, who was born in Nigeria but moved to England with her family as a young child, was paid £80,000 by the FA to sign a confidentiality agreement but has now obtained consent to tell her side of the story and in an interview with the Guardian she alleges that Sampson made the comment to her about Ebola before England played Germany in November 2014.
>“We were in the hotel. Everybody was excited. It was a big game. On the wall, there was a list of the family and friends who were coming to watch us and I just happened to be next to Mark. He asked me if I had anyone who would be there and I said I had family coming over from Nigeria. ‘Oh,’ he said. ‘Nigeria? Make sure they don’t bring Ebola with them.’
Is it racist to make a joke about people travelling from a country which had a confirmed Ebola outbreak during the height of the 2014 epidemic? It may not have been in the best possible taste, but that doesn't make it racist.
Were jokes made at our expense about mad cow disease racist? Were jokes made about Asians during their outbreak of bird flu racist?

It's a bit of a saga.
Two years ago, a Grimsby Town fan was kicked out of an away match against Forest Green Rovers after refusing to hand over a giant beach ball to the stewards. In protest, Grimsby Town fans started bringing inflatable toys to away games. Shortly afterwards, a fan was charged with assault for hitting a steward with an inflatable shark at an away game against Barnet. Barnet banned inflatable toys to prevent a repeat incident; Grimsby Town fans protested this by hiring a Mariachi band for their next away match against Barnet.
Basically, Grimsby Town fans are fucking mental.

>I remember laughing but in a very nervous way. I went back to my room and I was really upset.
>I’m not a sensitive, precious person ... but I can recognise something toxic when I see it
I think we have to acknowledge that as white people we're probably never going to understand what remarks are and aren't racist because they are received in a very specific context that is alien to us. If I take Aluko at her word, and this was dolphin rape, I'm trying to mentally put myself in her shoes and understand how she interpreted it, and I can sort-of grasp the degree of hurt felt, but it's quite difficult.

That's the sort of football game everyone should go to though. They seem like a fun lot to me (but then I'm Pompey, who are also quite mental).

It's mostly a victim-complex. In reality these feelings were and continue to be under her own control.
Dispensing with the usual pretences of sympathy and to cut it short - people do not deserve to be sympathised with just because their feelings are hurt.
|>>|| No. 8157
That would be great in a world with no dolphin rape what so ever.
|>>|| No. 8161
Now if other people want to insult her, for whatever reason, it's not the insult itself that hurts but her own decision to be hurt by insults. The only solution for her is to learn to disregard as unimportant everything not under her control; other people's dolphin rape is one of these things.
|>>|| No. 8163
No but as a human being with all the abilities for reason that entails, she does have control over her own thoughts and emotions. What I'm saying is that people shouldn't be wasting emotional energy on things she cannot control.

On one picture they look like a pair of Christmas puddings, so I'd imagine so.
She seems to be making the most of her five minutes of fame, giving one interview yesterday saying they only kissed and she's not a marriage wrecker before giving another one later saying they were both up for a shag and the police spoiled the night.

>any woman he wants
This is Wayne Rooney we're talking about lad. He might be filthy rich but he looks like fucking Shrek.

I think what >>8167 is probably getting at is that women go for rich men, often regardless of looks. Just look at Jerry Hall and Rupe.

This. I know his previous form shows that he has very low standards, but he could do a lot better than a skanky 29 year old bar rat single mother with a mahoosive forehead.

Indeed, and I was getting at the fact he's so bloody ugly I don't think any amount of money could tempt me to part my legs. Hence why he has to settle for skets like that.

Have you ever seen the prostitutes he's slept with? Even with all the money he earns he kept going for £45 per hour troggmonsters.

Maybe it's good financial planning. Or maybe he just has a thing for munters.

Wazza's been given a two year driving ban.
I'm starting to be convinced that it was the woman in the car with him who actually tipped off the police, bearing in mind the way she's being desperately trying to cling onto fame.
|>>|| No. 8193
All those holidays etc, she's been on are obviously being paid for by the papers. I'm inclined to assume she'd be ignorant of such arrangements, but I don't know how people think or what they know.

>Mark Sampson has been sacked as England women's manager following evidence of "inappropriate and unacceptable" behaviour with female players in a previous role.
>The Football Association says that last week it was made aware of the full details of safeguarding allegations made against Sampson in 2014 relating to his time as Bristol Academy manager. But a 2015 FA assessment found Sampson did not pose a risk.
>Sampson was deemed fit to continue as England manager after the FA carried out a safeguarding investigation when the allegations were first made in March 2014. Glenn insists he was first told of the investigation in October 2015 and read the full report for the first time only last week when someone from outside the FA advised him to do so.
Sounds like a witch-hunt, to me. Sacking him due to unsubstantiated rumours and media pressure.

Hertha Berlin's players and officials "took a knee" to show their support for "an open-minded world" before their 2-0 loss against Schalke on Saturday. The Bundesliga club copied the protests, started by San Francisco 49ers NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, against treatment of black Americans.
Is this what people mean when they talk about virtue signalling?
|>>|| No. 8196
I'm rather wary of the term, as it's often used to denigrate solidarity. There's nothing noble about playing leftier-than-thou Top Trumps on Twitter, but solidarity is the most precious and powerful weapon we have.
I think that Hertha Berlin's protest was a humble and respectful display of solidarity for African American athletes, rather than a smug display of their lefty credibility. Colin Kaepernick has retweeted Hertha Berlin's protest and many others; he clearly believes that that the broad national and international support for the NFL protests has substantially strengthened their cause.
In times like these, I think it's worth remembering the lessons of Paul Robeson. He supported the working class movement around the world, from Wales to China; in turn, they supported the civil rights movement in America. His humanity and generosity of spirit helped to bind disparate causes together into a unified struggle.
|>>|| No. 8199
The problem with Hertha Berlin is that they always try to kneel it in, err wha...
