Dienstags Three Old Hacks

Of course the booing of footballers is racist

von Three Old Hacks | Vom 2021-06-22

Mihir Bose, writer and broadcaster, writes primarily on sport. In the seventies he was always the only non-white reporter in the press box and often the only non-white spectator in the whole football ground, so he is well placed to comment on the current controversy over the booing of football players who take the knee at the beginning of matches in support of Black Lives Matter.He shares with old friends David Smith, Economics Editor of the Sunday Times and political commentator Nigel Dudley, how he was abused by football hooligans on a train and decided he would drive everywhere for his own safety.The Three Old Hacks discuss taking the knee and whether it’s now becoming an empty gesture, and the disastrous launch of GB News in this week’s Three Old Hacks podcast.Get in contact with the podcast by emailing [email protected], we’d love to hear from you!
