Nike Raheem Sterling Advert – Not Surprise

I wasn’t surprised to see that Nike has an advert ready to reward Raheem Sterling. Meanwhile, white people who tried to expose anti-white racism, such as the decades long grooming scandal, are more likely to be persecuted, and end up in prison; as Tommy Robinson was – no Nike advert for him!

Subtle Anti-white Racism

I watched Football Focus yesterday and a non-white discussion group were saying how racism isn’t always obvious, and is sometimes subtle; and I think that includes anti-white racism.

I was watching a BBC news report from the Nelson Mandela primary school in Birmingham during the summer, at the time of what would have been his 100th birthday (18th July). There were only one or two white children there, which wasn’t a surprise. What did shock me was that in a school book they were reading it talked of the white South African government while Mandela was rebelling.

You may be wondering why that shocked me – it’s because it talked of white, rather than using the political correctness non-whites expect (not discussing Prophet Mohammed’s 6-year-old bride, saying ‘terrorist group who call themselves ISIS’ etc), by calling it the apartheid government or something.

So, it seems they are starting the anti-white brainwashing young now – in a primary school named after a revolutionary black leader, with hardly any white children!

Is there a school in the UK named after a white conservationist killed in Africa, such as Dian Fossey (Gorillas in the Mist) or British couple George and Joy Adamson (Born Free), who were all killed by Africans while trying to do good work.

See the source image

There are lots of Africans doing great work for conservation too, and unfortunately lots of ‘big white hunters’; although the damage tourists do is nothing compared to poaching gangs and locals with machine guns!

This isn’t a criticism of Africa or Africans in general, more the British media/Establishment bias, in trying not to be ‘racist’ (if they don’t just hate the white working-class, and I know there are some who do) – like the police who didn’t investigate the grooming scandal, or the children who didn’t know how to say no – they become anti-white racist.

The BBC have another slave drama starting over Christmas, which will likely create more white hate! What about a white slavery (whites being enslaved by non-whites, as was also common) one; or even an Arabs enslaving Africans one, as was happening a long time before the white European operation began. Not enough interest without some white baddies, and a lesson in white evil, non-white goodness?

Stormzy Scholarship

The same kind of criticism can be levelled at Stormzy, who created a couple of university scholarships this year, and specified they were only for people of his ethnicity.

After years of British society having quotas and trying to be ‘fair’, Stormzy comes along and rips up the rule book, totally being ‘racist’.

If I hadn’t been persecuted out of academia I could have helped some of my demographic, and maybe even get them off the bottom of the league tables as they are now.

Return to Raheem

Maybe they’ll give Raheem Sterling an honorary doctorate in Media Studies now, after the establishment seem to love his research, which I wouldn’t have been too happy about if I was Phil Foden: could be considered snitching, which Sterling shouldn’t like, with his gun tattoo – like one of the independent-white-girl bullying Little Mix (Black Magic video)!

At least Sterling made his racism claims before the end of his career, when ready for a presenting job, like Rio Ferdinand and Eni Aluko.

Yaya Toure and Pep Guardiola

Funnily enough, Yaya Toure called Pep Guardiola racist at the end of last season, when leaving Manchester City, for not picking him enough, and I saw this week he’s just been released by new club Olympiakos after a few months.

Nike and the BBC will probably offer him contracts as he’s made an anti-white racism complaint.

Maybe that’s why Pep Guardiola kissed Sterling on the head while substituting him last season, trying to avoid looking racist; although he could have opened himself up to a complaint of inappropriate behaviour!

Apologies to Manchester City club and fans again, and good to see you return to winning ways yesterday, with Jesus, Sane and Sterling on form, although I like the Everton blues too.

Clarke Carlisle is Cool, Rio Ferdinand is a Herbert

Hi, it’s Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno, fashionista suprema at the Greenygrey, with a mix of serious reporting and satirical fashion for you today. I’ve been chosen to write this blog because there’s some greenygrey fashion later, as well as the fact that Voyager has left our solar system to become the first human object to travel in interstellar space after thirty-six years.

To me, interstellar space usually means keeping my distance from two of my closest rivals in fashion, Stella McCartney and Karl Lagerfeld. Or time between pints of Stella Artois. Anyway, enough about me, and on with the footie.

Football Needs Clark Carlisle, not Peter Herbert

Clarke Carlisle seems to take a balanced honest rational greenygrey view on his life and football in his new autobiography, You Don’t Know Me, But …: A Footballer’s Life; in which he has provoked controversy for criticising more extreme anti-racism campaigning footballers like Rio Ferdinand. We supported Carlisle’s Kick Racism Out campaign last year.

While the Greenygrey doesn’t want any prejudice in British sport and society, it also doesn’t want selfish and greedy people stirring up trouble where it is not needed.

Last year, Rio Ferdinand led a campaign that seemed totally out of proportion to the problem. After a couple of racist footballer cases, one of them by a South American, Ferdinand seemed to take inspiration from Malcolm X‘s black power movement, while Clarke Carlisle seemed more like Martin Luther King.

Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, Ferdinand’s raising of the agenda to critical point in the media led to some crowd incidents; with Ferdinand, the media and crowds like a perfect storm feeding off each for a while.

This was in a modern football culture where Congolese Fabrice Muamba had been cheered at every ground after surviving a cardiac arrest on the pitch while playing for Bolton.

Moreover, England goalie David James said he’d never experienced any racism in English football during his long career. James also said in an Independent article that he thought anti-racism groups were just trying to stir things up to justify their existence.

Peter Herbert’s Society of Black Lawyers

Into the perfect storm appeared Peter Herbert and the Society of Black Lawyers. While Herbert might be a good lawyer, and done good things in other cases, he apparently suffered racism in his childhood, and admitted he knew nothing about football. So he was hardly likely to take a greenygrey balanced view like Carlisle. However, the British media has still given him wide coverage.

Moreover, Herbert’s also caused trouble for Tottenham Hotspur’s Jewish fans, citing them as racist for calling themselves a ‘Y’ term I don’t want to use because I’m not Jewish, so would almost certainly be considered racist by Herbert and his cronies. 

The Jewish fans use the term as a self-defence, in the same way as some black people use the ‘N’ word; and Marc Latham uses the ‘C’ word. So Herbert diving into the football world without much knowledge criticising the Spurs fans as ‘racist’ is like a Jewish lawyer diving into the music world and calling black rappers racist for using the ‘N’ word.

Anyway, enough serious stuff for now, and there’s been some great greenygrey news in the football fashion world this season…

Greenygrey Football Kits

Andrii Piatov kept a clean sheet as Ukraine drew 0-0 with England. Piatov wore a mainly grey kit with green stripes.

Asmir Begovic has helped little Bosnia and Herzegovina to the brink of World Cup qualification in a green shirt, and grey shorts and socks.

Begovic plays for Stoke in the Premier League, and in a first for the Greenygrey, their away kit has been passed as greenygrey by the Board of Greenygrey Quality Control.

The main colour is definitely grey, described as dark shale. The second colour is described as electric. Electric can look green or yellow, so is quite controversial, but it has now been passed as green enough; with this greenygrey little and large Owen and Crouch photo clinching the case.

There’s lots more greenygrey mixing of serious observations and humour in Doctor of Philosophy Marc Latham’s  books available on Smashwords and Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham), with Werewolf of Oz and 242 Mirror Poems self-published to create bargain prices.
