Okay, the origins of bon fire night are discrimination against Catholics, do you protest it as promoting sectarian violence?

I don't accept that it is an impossibility for a white actor to portray a black role without it being a deliberate slight. The issue is the example you have picked derives it's comedy from dolphin rape not that the action of blacking up is racist.

Equally I question it as the origins, Othello has doubtlessly being performed with white actors playing moors, so at least 200 years before Vaudeville existed so no white actors playing black characters is not intrinsically linked to slavery.

Burnley have become embroiled in something of a Christmas firestorm after media reports in France appeared to suggest that the club was racist.

The usually reliable French media publication L'Equipe published an article about the biggest "surprise package" of the 2017/18 Premier League season thus far, but caused huge controversy over their insinuation that the Clarets were against playing footballers from black or ethnic minority backgrounds

Burnley, who currently sit seventh in England's top flight, will no doubt be shocked to learn of the article which calls them a "100% white team with players with flattened noses and big ears". A large portion of the piece states: "(They are) coached by a ginger Englishman, in a city who voted 70% for Brexit and which has been the breeding ground of racial tensions.

“Formed with 80% British players and 100% white players, Burnley is the surprise team of the season. 40 kilo-meters north of Manchester, everything is from another century. There is not a single black player in the seventh team in the Premier League, led by a red-haired Englishman, Sean Dyche. In fact, there was a colored player in the early season photo, Daniel Agyei, but he was loaned to Walsall."

Found it.

"LA PHOTO D'ÉQUIPE DE BURNLEY est un programme. Des gars au cheveu ras, nez épaté, oreilles décollées, prêts à se battre, qui semblent ancarpet-baggerr leur idéal du jeu, le samedi après-midi, et de la vie, le samedi soir. Il n'y a pas un seul joueur noir dans l'effectif du septième de Premier League, dirigé par un Anglais rouquin, Sean Dyche (46 ans), et il est aussi difficile de croire à la préméditation qu'au hasard.
En fait, il y en avait un joueur de couleur sur la photo du début de saison, Daniel Agyei, et il a été prêté à Walsall. Ce n'est pas la raison pour laquelle il a été prêté, évidemment, mais ainsi va le Burnley FC, une équipe qui ressemble à la ville, une enclave du nord à quarante kilomètres de Manchester, qui a voté à 70% pour le Brexit, et qui avait été le terreau de fortes tensions raciales, en 2001.
En cette première moitié de saison anglaise, Burnley figure une équipe d'un autre temps, par son visage pâle, par son jeu structuré mais étriqué qui l'a vu prendre 32 points avec 16 buts, et par son décor d'un autre siècle, cet antre de Turf Moor qu'il occupe depuis 1883, installé au milieu des maisons alignées, proche du centre ville. «Que les gens pensent qu'on puisse finir dans le top six, ou dans la première moitié, ou qu'on va se casser la gueule, on s'en fiche complètement.» - Ben Mee, capitaine
Un club qui a failli disparaître de la carte du football professionnel La gloire du club est ancienne, désormais : Burnley avait été la plus petite ville sacrée championne d'Angleterre (78 000 habitants, à l'époque), en 1960. Depuis, le club a failli disparaître de la carte du football professionnel, en 1987, et vit seulement sa quatrième saison en Premier League depuis quarante-et-un ans.
Mais c'est une saison parfaitement incroyable, dont la lourde défaite face à Tottenham (0-3), samedi, à Turf Moor, n'est pas le reflet : les «Clarets» avaient seulement encaissé douze buts en dix-huit-journées, et ils en ont concédé trois lors de la dix-neuvième. C'était peut-être parce que, pour la première fois, il leur fallait assumer leur position dans le top six, s'en faire une ambition à entretenir plutôt qu'une incongruité à revendiquer. «Je ne vois pas pourquoi ce serait irréaliste, assure pourtant Ben Mee, défenseur central et capitaine. Tout le monde doute de nous et prédit notre chute, mais nous sommes une bonne équipe, et on peut continuer à faire ce que nous faisons de bien.» Personne ne croit que Burnley puisse se qualifier pour une coupe d'Europe, qu'il n'a pas disputée depuis la Coupe des villes de foires en 1967, mais donner tort aux autres n'est même pas un ressort pour Mee et les siens. C'est encore pire que ça : «Que les gens pensent qu'on puisse finir dans le top six, ou dans la première moitié, ou qu'on va se casser la gueule, on s'en fiche complètement.» Quand il fait froid, pas de bas de survêtement, pas de bonnet, pas de gants Burnley est si anglais que Gareth Southgate, le sélectionneur, est déjà venu quatre fois à Turf Moor, cette saison. Il a offert sa première sélection au milieu Jack Cork, en novembre, face à l'Allemagne (0-0), et pourrait emmener le gardien Tom Heaton (31 ans, 3 sélections) en Russie.
Grâce à la saison de Burnley, Sean Dyche est devenu l'entraîneur anglais à la mode. C'est autant un titre de noblesse qu'un mistigri à refiler absolument au suivant : cela ne dure pas, cela finit toujours mal, que cela passe ou non par un séjour furtif dans un grand club. Ancien joueur moyen, capitaine du Chesterfield (D3) demi-finaliste de la Cup en 1987, il est monté deux fois avec Burnley, et n'est redescendu qu'une fois. Cela n'a l'air de rien, mais en mai dernier, Burnley s'est maintenu dans l'élite pour la première fois depuis 1975.
L'ancien gardien de l'équipe d'Angleterre, Paul Robinson, a récemment raconté à l'antenne anglaise de beIN, la façon dont Dyche maintient son autorité, ainsi qu'une certaine idée de la vie sociale. Quand il fait très froid, pas de bas de survêtement, pas de bonnet, pas de gants – et quand il fait chaud non plus. En cas d'infraction à ces règles-là et à quelques autres, le joueur incriminé fait tourner la roue de la fortune installée dans le vestiaire. Les punitions sont variables : tomber sur le « E », par exemple, implique de se déguiser en Elvis et de chanter devant les autres. Pas sûr que cela choque grand-monde un samedi soir à Burnley."

My French isn't good enough to translate it, but the tone isn't anywhere near as racist as the article goes on. Seems to be just a bit sensationalist.

>Peter Beardsley has been suspended from his role as Newcastle United Under-23s boss while the investigation into allegations of bullying and dolphin rape continues.

>Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday morning that Beardsley had arrived to take training at the club’s academy but was immediately called to St James’ Park. And it has now been confirmed that Beardsley will not be working with the players who have brought the complaints against him until the matter is resolved.

>Sportsmail reported on Monday that Newcastle’s hierarchy had heard how Beardsley allegedly made a racist comment to one of his players during a trip to the Go Ape adventure course. It is claimed Beardsley said to an African player struggling to climb on some bars, 'Why are you taking so long? Your lot should be good at this'. He is also alleged to have questioned the age of African players.

There's long been question marks over the ages of African players. For example, Kanu was allegedly just shy of his 17th birthday when he signed for Ajax and was just shy of his 20th birthday when he left them for Inter.

Black boys generally physically develop faster than white boys, but the lack of proper birth certificates in parts of Africa means there's a suspicion that older players have been gaming the system to try and get recruited by youth academies.

No doubt there's some who find this suspicion to be racist.

Disgraced footie carpet-bagger Adam Johnson hopes to join 'CONFERENCE club' after prison stretch

The ex-Man City and Sunderland player is said to have turned down an offer to play in China, preferring to stay in the north east. An insider told the Sun: “Adam has told people that Hartlepool is a likely destination.”

Johnson was caged in 2016 for six years on child sex offences, but is entitled to parole in March 2019. The carpet-bagger’s career unravelled when he met and sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in his car, in County Durham.

Rumours swirled last month that paedo Johnson could be out of prison as early as October after vowing to coach local teams. A source told The Sun: “Adam Johnson is positive he’ll be home as early as October, and certainly by Christmas. A lot of work has gone in to demonstrating to the relevant authorities why he should be allowed special dispensation for an early release. He has vowed to coach football and support his local community.”

Yes, yes, Ronaldo's a bumder, very droll. However, more seriously, this does seem to very likely be true and frankly that depresses me. While Ronaldo's obviously a nutter, with an on pitch personality not disimilar to that angry German kid smashing his keyboard while playing Counter-Strike from ten years ago, I still found him an entertaining player, and if it's not too fawning, his manicial dedication to being an athlete a bit inspiring. I'm certainly not one of his rabid fanboys, but I did like the bloke, in a roundabout sort of way.

I don't know, I just wish people could stop being rapists. Is it really that difficult not to rape women? Ethan Kath, Ronaldo, every other English YouTube "personality"; it's all a bit much.

The lawyer representing a teacher who claims she was raped by Cristiano Ronaldo has told The Mail on Sunday that he has been contacted by another women alleging she also was sexually assaulted by the footballer.

Leslie Stovall, who is acting for former model Kathryn Mayorga, who made the first accusation, said: 'I have had a call from a woman who claims to have had a similar experience.' He declined to name the American woman, but said he would hand her details to Las Vegas police who have reopened the 2009 case of alleged rape brought by Ms Mayorga.

It does seem that anyone with a modicum of fame finds it nearly impossible to not molest women.

Either all men are a bit rapey and only the famous ones get called out for it, or there's something about being a bit famous that makes you think you can get away with it. Or the third option is that having a high profile and a bit of money makes everyone want to pretend you felt them up so they get money out of it. I feel like the latter is by far the least likely, just so we're clear I'm not trying to go down that avenue.

Call me cynical but I'm starting to feel like the last option is happening more than we'd like to admit, precisely because we feel like we'd be horrible people for even pursuing that line of reasoning. I'm not saying it's the most prevalent reason but we shoudln't discount it.

I mean if I was a women I would absolutely sleep with a premiership footballer and then blackmail him with rape allegations. Probably 90% of one night stands occur under the influence of alcohol which is enough alone to give your claim merit. "I felt pressured into saying yes your honour." Bam, rape.

I'm technically a 'bit famous' in my industry too (probably more accurately just very recognised in my industry), but other than shagging some birds I probably couldn't have if I was just some office manager somewhere, I don't think I've managed to do anything non-consensual.

I saw something just now on twitter that said something along the lines of '1 in 3 women are sexually abused, 1 in 100 men are falsely accused of it'

I don't know if that's a real figure or not, though, and to be honest it doesn't address any man who has still been convicted of a sexual crime he didn't actually commit. I'm sure it does happen more than we'd like to admit. It's definitely tough as it's hard to question someone who's coming forward with what you'd assume to be an incredibly difficult recounting of a traumatic event.

I dunno. My first girlfriend decided to tell people we broke up because I hit her, when in reality I dumped her because she was cheating on me. She didn't go to the police, thank fuck, because I have no idea how that might have gone down. What could I have done other than say "no I didn't, honest". I'm sure there's still people who believe what she said, because why wouldn't you? Blokes hit women all the time. This was fifteen years ago, but all it would take is one of her mates to see that I'm doing quite well now and suggesting that maybe it's time to get VEnGEaNce.

Those type of figures tend to have a very wide ranging definition of sexual abuse, which can include things like unsuccessfully coming on to someone or even just looking at them. A few months back there was a rather flawed study, using a self-selecting sample, which was extrapolated to claim that sexual harassment at universities is rife; the Graun got a lot of mileage out of it.

Zenit St Petersburg have condemned star striker Alexander Kokorin, who faces criminal prosecution for hitting a government official with a chair in a Moscow café.

Russia international Kokorin, together with Krasnodar midfielder Pavel Mamaev, was captured on security cameras attacking the man as he ate breakfast at a table in the corner of the room. The pair were behaving rowdily and café employees thought they were drunk and had taken drugs, according to a report by Russian daily newspaper Gazeta.

Gazeta also reported that two high-ranking government officials ended up in hospital as a result of the attack, with one losing a tooth, and Moscow police are investigating.
