Did any of you watch football this weekend? Happen to catch the Manchester United V Liverpool game? Did you hear the boos every time Patrice Evra touched the ball? Did you see the charming actions of the crowd, specifically the man making monkey gestures? Did you read about Anton Ferdinand getting a bullet in the post? No doubt from some delightful Chelsea supporter outraged that John Terry should be held to account for his racist bollocks when he gets away with just about everything else.
I thought we, as society, had moved past this kind of thing, oh sure we have the occasional wally mouthing racist dirge, but they usually get slapped down fairly sharpish. Although having said that, there were plenty of keyboard warriors out in force, defending his comments too, now that I think about it.
Hard to watch, hard to fathom, and I hope that monkey making muppet is banned for life from all future games. I hope Liverpool come down hard and heavy on this kind of nonsense. They need to do something other than wear questionable t-shirts in support of the unsupportable.
