Hi everyone,
I am currently conducting a research report into racism in English football and whether the rise of social media has caused a rise in racism. I would be very grateful if you could take a couple of minutes of your time to fill out this short survey for me please?

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XRM2SV8

Thanks and good luck for the rest of the season.

Done.

 

Thankfully that dismal I'd rather be a (   ) than a blade chant is a rarity these days.

 

I did nearly get my face smashed in during 2011? season for 

objecting to it being chanted in a pub in Rochdale.

 

As per above posts i don't think racism is a problem at Hillsborough these days.

I do remember sporadic monkey chants at Hillsborough back in the 70's and 80's but it was never thankfully the norm, unlike some grounds.

 

Only, incident I recall is travelling on one of the football specials from Pond Street and the West Indian conductor was verbally abused by some 20-year-old lads when he offered to discuss it with them off the bus they went strangely quiet, he was I'm pleased to say well supported by many of his passengers.

 

Pleased to say that racism at Hillsborough is virtually a none issue.  

 

We are all gods children.

I remember a banana being thrown at a black player taking a throw in during the mid 1980s. It definitely happened once, my memory is cloudy over whether it happened a couple of times. But the monkey chants didn't seem to be anything like as common as they were elsewhere.

Survey done.

For what it is worth, I think social media is helping to stamp out racism, not increase it. Yes it gives idiots a voice but they would have a voice in more damaging ways anyway.

 

What social media is very good at is getting people who hold those views shot down by the general populus. 

 

In my opinion, social media teaches people what is unacceptable much more than it does make things acceptable.

Bit confused. Why can't he touch him? Was he searched? Was it because he is British or because he was travelling by air?

It looked like he was shoving him out from airport arrivals. 

 

Unless they think you are carrying narcotics or explosives then no they can't touch you.
