With the news of fans being allowed back in the stadiums, it'll be the first time that the kneeling demonstrations will have carried out in front of fans in a stadium.I wonder if there'll be any vocal backlash up and down the country as this happens? We saw with Burnley doing it at Man City that an "All lives matter" banner was flown across the sky. I'd hope that fans from this city at least would be supportive and Everton players continue to do it.
In my opinion, there's not a great deal of support for that particular cause among our fanbase.
I really hope things have changed. One interesting aspect of all this, is that a lot of people thought we (everton and uk in general) had sorted out racism to some extent. Not that it had gone away completely, but in the example of Everton from when I first went to the games to when I left the UK 10 years ago there was a huge change, from hearing lots of racism towards our own players to not hearing much if anything. The interesting thing for me is that the racism never left, it just went quiet, or at least in the stadiums, which doesnt help long term. Will be interesting to see what the club and the players say regarding it, if we make a statement
I think the majority of those who did not particularly support it would be likely to say that their objection is unrelated to racism.
do you mean they would act as if it wasnt be really was, or you think people genuinely have an objection to it without being racist?
They'd probably accuse you of being racist for accusing them of being racist.
I love it.Every time someone says "Why are we still doing this?" it gives us the opportunity to talk about it some more.Too often we have a big push or a 'thingy week' or a 'thingy day' and then people like me can forget about it for months on end. That's the problem right there - I could easily forget about this because it doesn't affect me personally very much at all. But some people are taking this poisonous shit on a daily basis.I hope the plan is to keep it until humanity is healed because it shouldn't be a thing that can be forgotten about - ever.
