Mate you clearly do not understand the notion of racism, it's not whites vs. the world it's singling out a group of people for the skin colour/nationality. I wasn't really offended by your first statement just confused really.

P.S. "thought police" is probably the biggest fail at humour/irony/cleverness I have ever seen, well done.
Racism: 'Discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race.'

I said the black players played well today, don't get vexed.

nothing to to with football manager and everything to do with how they had a spare man in defence and midfield all the time, which is what happens when you get 4-4-2 vs 3-5-2

well that was because they played for a draw so brought their defensive strikers back into midfield

The race issue: It was short-hand. He's not singling out black players because they're black. All the players he thought played well happened to be black. That's all. Stop sensationalising it.

Would you be on your high horse if he had said 'everyone with brown hair played well'? I think not. Stop turning it into a racist issue.

The game issue: Abyssmal game. Change of formation is definitely needed.

What A BLOW. Enlgand were supposed to be one of the 2 or 3 favourites, along Brazil and Spain to win this WC. And they are closer to being eliminated in first round. They just might as well share the plane with France and go home

Not really. It was a fairly obvious change that should of been made.

There's a difference. People with brown hair aren't considered a race, therefore it wouldn't be racist.

Listen bud, your argument and logic is pathetic.

Racism is having preconceptions about a race, or treating people of a certain race differently, or seeing them differently.

What he said isn't racism. What he did was group players by a common trait. He could have grouped them by the colour of their boots. Their race is something they had in common. Don't blow it out of proportion. He wasn't being malicious.

1. It wasn't racist as all I said is that I found the black players to be England's best performers.
2. It was to save time typing as I have stated numerous times.
3. If I said ginger players played badly you would probably jump on that (hypothetical)
4. In your misplaced frustration you have started a witch hunt against me on an issue that was besides my point.

I wanted to save time typing so I called the group of players black rather than calling them all by name because I didn't want the discussion to move onto the next point leaving my point to be late and invalid. :(
