Last night, BBC Three aired Clarke Carlisle’s documentary on racism in football. If you haven’t had t
he chance to watch it, you can see it here.
Last night we asked for some comments from our followers on Twitter. Here are a selection of them:
“@KayCPage racism is more than a word, it’s about equality and lack of I in the higher ranks of football”
“@xavierlabat football itself isn’t racist, but within football their is racism to do with the opportunity to play the game”
“@adamwhite567 You can write essays on the topic. But as a doc, very informative, gets the issue out there. A lot more needs to be done That being said. Barnes part was questionable as his management record is poor which devalues a very plausible argument”
“@JoshStanton87 if football is racist, then its also ageist, size-ist, xenophobic, homophobic, shallow, judgemental and quick to stereotype”
What do you think? If you have a view, let us know and we’ll publish it.
