Posted in: Fans booing players taking a knee shows racism still a problem: Henderson See in context

No, this means many fans don't want political messages and causes thrown in their faces at a game

These are the same fans who boo other countries national anthems and chant about no surrender to the IRA and winning WW2.

If only there was a word for an anti-anti-racist.

I admire and respect your determination and empathy in the face of such vitriol.

You give strength to some.

Thank you.

@Joe Blow.

So by your logic every movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Audrey Hepburn, Omar Sharif, Yul Brynner, Liam Neeson, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Richard Burton, Keanu Reeves, Christian Bale (*ouch my aching typing hands) etc. should be in the foreign film category.

Back to the Dolph Lundgren movies for you. Oh.

Heartfelt congratulations to a thoroughly deserving winner.

Anyone who has watched his progress over the last few years could see it was only a matter of time before he won a major.

Having said that I am sure he benefited from the lack of Japanese media circus at Augusta.

Japan’s chronic self-obsession and the crushing weight of expectation has broken many before him.

Yet to find perfection but enjoy the searching.

Vancouver is a wonderful city with a vibrant culture and stunning surroundings. But it does rain a lot and the transport connections to Seattle are almost third world.

Galway is also lovely, especially when one of the many festivals is on.

This guy has adopted a kawaii gaijin schtick like most of the foreigners on TV here.

If they’re cool playing cartoon humans that’s fine. I just can’t see any connection between a handful of ‘entertainer’ foreigners in the media and the wider subject of acceptance in Japanese society.

This is the sub-human who espouses the belief that Sandy Hook was faked and the traumatized children (yes, children) and their grieving parents are paid “crisis actors”.

Defamation of Character, libel.

This is not just a point of view. It is illegal.

It is quite revealing how certain Americans treat the constitution like the 12 commandments. Cast in stone from Mt Sinai.

An amendment is a formal or official change made to a law, contract, constitution, or other legal document. It is based on the verb to amend, which means to change.

The law just needs amending again.

Canada does seem to be leading the way on this issue.

Maybe the lack of fundamentalist Christians in Canada means they can legislate effectively rather than being anchored to two thousand year-old orthodoxy.
