    Well did you read my reasoning? If so, what do you disagree with?

    That's an example that proves my point though.. If we found it unacceptable for anyone to say nigger, there wouldn't be hundreds of white people saying 'but, but they get to say it all the time! What's the difference?'

    And that's fine, but then there will be pages of discussion about how unfair it is thst people are getting treated differently for the same offence, and inevitably bullies will play of this to gain sympathy.

    So you didn't read my reasoning then, because I've said, several times, that I agree with that, but it does not matter - that is not the point.

    & I understand that but that does make it right for Bernardo to become collateral damage. I believe an educational piece to both Bernardo & Mendy offered but not enforced & a request to assist with educating others would have been a far better solution.

    I actually believe how it has been handled would actually give the message that “you can’t say anything” & then that dilutes real racism & will be brought up to prove it.

    On another note has anything been said about the company that uses the images, have kick it out written to them? Have they responded to criticism?

    I think his punishment was harsh - the ban was unnecessary. He made an honest mistake, and a slap on wrists fine would have been enough.

    It don't think it se ds the message that you can't say anything, just that you should think about what you say!

    And the journos using the image obviously get to hid behind the the shield of 'just reporting facts', so...

    Exactly this, maybe you should send these thoughts to kick it out as they along with the idiots who banned and fined the guy for being or not being a racist as they cant decide what one is are in need of educating a gell of a lot more than Mendy and Bernado.

    If you do however dont expect the courtesy of a reply.

    Funny enough I actually saw Bernado this afternoon at Faro Airport. We were flying back to Manchester and all the Portuguese were getting excited saying Ronaldo is here (no mention of anyone else just Ronaldo) Anyhow it turns out the Portugal team were boarding a plane to fly to Luxembourg which was taxying out behind us. Saw the players from the special assistance bus that takes the Mrs to the plane, hello of a lot of security.

    Thought it strange they were flying out of Faro as they played in Lisbon? Strange that they were flying on a Maltese jet with no airline markings but thats the plane spotter in me....

    Well I was very polite but alas no reply as yet.

    I can quite understand that your first email might not have been terribly subtle but all the same its rather telling and in my view adds further evidence to suggest kick it out may be a tad racist themselves.
