And I know you aren't seeking sympathy either. Neither am I. I'm just illustrating (my at least perceived) disparity in the management of different types of abuse in our game.
Unless someone can explain to me how anyone suffers more from black/asian abuse as to abuse on other races or abuse re country of origin/hair colour etc???
This is a genuine question. Not a knee jerk counter-response or provocation in some EDL type stance!
So what are you saying Robin?, that racial abuse is on parity to abuse about hair colour?. Or that we should let it happen without any punishment?. Any abuse is not really acceptable, but that which is particularly bad for me, is that which leads to hate crimes and worse.
For me racial abuse is the thin end of the wedge, and as well as demonstrating a persons utter ignorance, fails to take into account how throughout history this kind of division has led to murder and genocide, not the case with hair colour unless I am mistaken.
I for one am in support of the club for sacking this player.
