Ok, in that case please can you give us some guidelines as to what age it's OK to say the 'N' or the 'Ch**k' words? From what you write there, you imply it's ok to say them before 18, but not after. Would be good if you could clarify what is good vs bad racism, thanks.The cricketer was representing England in a test which the ECB had chosen to take a stance against discrimination of all kinds.
In addition, he was 18 or 19 when he made the offensive tweets, while Ellish was 13 or 14 when she fcuked up. In short, the two situations are quite different.
For the record, I don't think Ollie Robinson should be banned from playing cricket but I can absolutely understand why he wasn't selected for the second test against New Zealand.
Also, don't you think it's possible that people can change their minds and attitudes from their early 20's moving into their early 40's? I don't see we should have 18 (or 16) as some kind of dividing line.
