Tough episode to engage with. A reality is that racism, like any other prejudice, is impossible to eradicate in any nation, on any continent. What is possible to do is for legislature to be anti-discriminatory, for organisations to be anti-discriminatory and for people to receive a balanced education about our society and history, the good and bad bits. England is one of the least discriminatory countries in the world - and I challenge anyone that does not agree with that to state which countries are better and which are worst - one from each continent. And if there is to be a truth and reconciliation process, then that has to be anti-discriminatory too, all races, cultures perhaps in proportion. The sensitivity has increased towards comments that have a racial, cultural or colour component which I think, as society attitudes to race has matured, is counter-productive. if someone calls me a "Chinese *******" then the actual insult is the ******* not the adjective "Chinese". As a kid, without guidance, I'd have thought that racist, but as an adult, it is not. If someone complemented me or described me and included my "look", it might be a bit wierd, or normal, but its not racist. Back to football, clubs banning supporters who are engaging in clear racist behaviour, rescinding their season ticket and/or taking legal action - all is more than more or even all other countries. Racial discrimination is a global problem and England is doing a fantastic job of using every avenue to minimise it here.

Emotion in referees towards players is one thing - bias is another. It was shocking to see the cynical foul by Henderson and the far worse one by Milner, not result in a yellow card. The player they fouled landed on his head - which luckily did not result in serious injury. The referee bottled it at Anfield in that moment.

Couldn't agree more with Jordan Jarett Bryan. Let's stop giving these people air. They're wrong. Fully support drowning them out with applause. Fight their bile with support. The Wan-Bissaka interview where he was asked about those morons after the best moment of his life was more demoralising to see than the disgusting booing

Re the booing, pity that the right or wrong of it is not being discussed, this group of presenters are assuming it is wrong. The last time it happened was Brexit, where the media was overwhelmingly pro-Brexit and ignored what the public really felt and thought. Note the players are not being booed for their footballing performance or, good forbid their colour - but they are for their political stance, which the majority of fans believe it is.

The enthusiasm to take offence has become ridiculous and counter-productive. As a "person of colour" 50% Chinese, 50% Caucasian and 100% English. I'm coming to the opinion that the true offense in the phrases "Chinese b*st*rd" or "Indian b*st*rd" is not the descriptive racial term, rather the word "b*st*rd". The term where there is a racial adjective should not legally be considered racist. A "f*ck*ng monkey" said to anyone is pretty racist. As is calling someone a coconut or a demeaning word on race. Weekender there is racism on twitter, thankfully a very small minority, yes it should get sorted out, so put pressure on the managers of them, but why not just walk away from it? Twitter and Facebook are hoses of public opinion and always will be and there are all sorts out there. Trying to suppress those opinions you don't like, however a natural an urge, ultimately is pointless and counter productive. Better to focus energy on positive reinforcement, to change minds, to cultivate a deeper, stronger multi-racial English culture.

Quite recently the England U17s and U19s have won the World Cup and Euros respectively so there has been a winning mentality that should have been carried into the U21 and Senior setups. Boothroyd is evidently, on results, not up for the job. England can do a lot better. Replace him. Southgate still has credibility however, so will see how he does in the Euros.
