I believe you have to fight against racism when it occurs. You have to highlight the wrongs and cut them out.
I honestly don't care what others think - I will sleep well at night, as always..
How you fight the perceived racism is important. Stop with the inner chimp and gooz fra baa a little.

Just reported his post unfortunately, I would recommend others to do the same. No place on here for inflammatory and insulting language against another poster, especially when his insults have no basis in fact.
Orchestrating some witch-huntery astride your long leggedy steed, Tavares ? You don't really want to turn this place into an echo chamber, and silence all dissenting voices do you ? Hmm.

Dissenting voices no, unwarranted insulting and inflammatory language yes.
We converse respectfully enough on here despite our thinly veiled contempt for each other’s political views. 😀
Let you and I Elgy be the beacon for civilised discourse on these boards, come on you trot barsteward, are you with me? 😀

If i had to agree with you we would both be wrong
Thankfully I don't see them as I have him on ignore. I suggest others do the same.

I used to report him to the mods but they never did anything, so I gave up doing that too.
I normally do have him on ignore but tbh it was early morning and thought I would have a looksee at what blurb was coming out today , Seems I was right to look.

I'm thinking he's not taken to well to my postings around Marcus Rashford. And I stick by them. Instead of doing what Rashford did and throw his toys out of the pram, why not do something like Gary Neville & Ryan Giggs did with their hotel for the homeless? They knew homelessness isn't going away, so rather than jump up and down ranting while driving £80K cars to their £2 mill houses, they dug into their own pockets to do some good.
So let me get this right - you think that poverty and homelessness should be the responsibility of a few rich footballers, rather than of the government whose policies and ineptitude has led directly to the huge increase in poverty and homelessness over the 10 years they've been in power?

Tav, since chiding Stuffers with 'me old bucket of whale poo', any aspiration for civilised beaconhood I once had, is now shot.

indo lives in Indo for good reason - insulting and inflammatory language can often be highly subjective. Perhaps we should be mindful of that too.

Might well be a barsteward, but I ain't no Trot, now that's insulting to me ! Mods !! You miserable old git. :)

It's a very Conservative approach to starve children in order to teach their parents a lesson, then question the motives of anyone who speaks out against it

By the way, what's the problem with replacing a presenter with another "of colour". Whats the relevance of "colour"?
IF that person has only been given the job because of their colour is that right ? There have been instances of people of colour being given jobs over white people because that employer hasn't enough people of colour within their organisation.

Has there actually, or do you just think there has?
