    It's not racist. But it allows racist people to be racist more openly by blurring the line of what we consider to be acceptable.

    Rather than cut and paste my point, I'll leave you to your virtue signalling.

    I read your post, but I genuinely don't know what your point is. It seems that you are saying that young people today are waving their swords at imaginary foes, but then you acknowledge that the foes are real and need fighting.

    I'm not virtue signalling, I am attempting to explain how I think the FA arrived at their sanctions. I have been quite polite and not insulted anyone. I thought we were engaging in adult debate here - sorry for offending you dude.

    Not offended at all, and neither was Benjamin Mendy.

    I’ve seen the pictures of that “silly cow” after the spill and read the key points of the verdict.

    I’ll rest on the fact that justice was done.

    You can characterize her and the situation any way you please....and clearly have no trouble warping the facts. Carry on....

    And, as I've tried to explain, that is not the point!

    I think your point is, that while you meant no offence and I took no offence, somebody might have been offended.

    I though it was more

    "I may not be offended and you may not have intended to offend, but somebody else may think it is acceptable to do similarly and cause offence, and it is deemed unacceptable by FA policy to allow such potentially promoting actions"

    No mate, my point is that, whilst this message caused no offence and is not racist, taking bo action would make it easier for actual racists, who do want to cause offence, to be more openly rasist.
    It does this by blurring the lines of what we, as a society consider to be acceptable, allowing actual racists to easier justify their actually racist behaviour.
