If I had the stage footballers have I know that I would take that opportunity. It has a far bigger impact than you or I off the street.I'll get other people to do things so I can feel good about doing nothing myself.
But I agree with the sentiment that it takes more than just people in the limelight. It's an educational issue.
However the more it is shamed and highlighted the more the younger generations who are learning from what they see will understand how wrong it is.
If we continue to turn a blind eye then so to will our children. What I hope will come from this is a larger more robust approach from everybody (the ones that care) to speak out and not turn a blind eye anymore, don't ignore that 'harmless' racist joke at work, try to educate people with a naive stereotypical view of minorities. These things happen every minute of the day in every walk of life, what it does is dumb down people into accepting it.
There will always be racists but in 2020 it should be less prevalent, we shouldn't be seeing a group of white police officers allowing the slow death of a man whilst knowing they are being recorded - It's clear they felt totally in the right to commit this disgraceful act. I mean how can that be in 2020 in the streets of a modern society that professes to lead the way in the free world and set the example?
It's all of our responsibility to try to affect any meaningful change. To not accept it. It's made all the more important now because of the racist clown they have in power over there. Somebody of his inclination can set that country back 30 years in relation to the fragile progress they have made with integration.
