Whether we're black, white, male or female, what decisions need making?
    Life is a lot more complicated today Mox...you can't have a **** without asking whether the paper was from a sustainable source. Every committee must have a complete range of representation to arrive at the most simple of decisions. It's a recipe, and perhaps even a desire for, obfuscation.

    But you aren't allowed not be "bothered".... The attitude you have is perfectly acceptable in every way, but positive discrimination is now the order of the day, discriminating in favour of a minority instead of a majority is still discrimination, but in our rush back to the age of Victoria, debate on such subjects are not tolerated...

    The good news for Hants_red and ramone and the wider ECFC family is that the Club's past is being documented and preserved whenever the opportunity presents itself. Not just for a particular month, but month on month on month!

    Every month, every day, every minute gives recognition to white history. It is the default position in a world run by white men. The point of Black History Month, like International Women’s Day and a myriad of other events, is to recognise the overlooked.

    People who ask questions like yours are generally a) not very bright and b) in danger of being thought racist.

    No it doesn’t. It might have in the past, but today everyone is (quite rightly) recognised. The world isn’t run by white men either - China and Japan are fairly major world players, the US had a black president, much of Africa, Asia and South America have non-white leaders and our current leader and monarch are both women.
