Idiots have always been here in society the difference is now the Internet is cheap and we all have smart phones and have free to join platforms like Instagram, twitter, FB etc that gives them a very big public voice to spout nonsense, it simply is a different world digitally from 20/30 years ago.

I think anyone that sends a racist message to a lad in the street, or a Premier League football is scum.

It also gives you the platform to expose them.

So early in the day to be drawing false equivalences.

 

Remember kids, if you see someone getting assaulted tell them to grow up as 23 years ago someone else got hurt.

Hate crimes are treated as more serious than other crimes because they have a wider and more detrimental effect on society.  If someone in your town gets beaten up because they had a row over a taxi rank, it primarily affects one person. But if they got beaten up because of who they are - because they're black, because they're gay, because they're Jewish, and you're one of the only other black/gay/jewish familes in that town, that serves as a real threat and a warning to you specifically that there are people who don't want you there and want to hurt you. And sometimes that's the intention - gangs of Nazis in Russia film their attacks on immigrants because they want them to go viral and make immigrants feel they shou;d leave Russia, or not move there.

 

Hanging an effigy of Beckham is abhorrent, but it's an attack on him alone.  Nobody called David, nobody who's white, nobody who's got a floppy hair-do is going to look at that and wonder if they're next, if the people who did that look at them the same way.  When the abuse is directed specifically at black players and is racist in nature, and directed at them because of their race, it has a wider effect than just telling someone you hate them because they screwed up on the pitch. It's all very well telling someone to get over personal criticism of themselves, but when abuse is racist it's also an attack on your parents, your brother, your kids. On hundreds of other people who can't just be told "Oh, you're a rich young footballer I'm sure you'll get over it" if that was even a reasonable response in the first place.

Great post. Just wanted to add it doesn't need to be the same people. In fact most of the time the identity will remain unknown so anybody could inspire that fear.

It's like everyone's forgetting the long history of actual lynchings of white football superstars. For shame.

Sadly never came to fruition.
