Manchester United fans use Sikhs to abuse Chelsea and all other racists
Sky News has been discussing racism. And that always means racism in football, the obvious stuff when white, working class people in man-made fibres are filmed ranting and raving about a soft target.
Eamonn Holmes, the Sky News anchor, was chairing the debate, which quickly turned to Chelsea fans (club owner: Jewish Russian; supstar striker: black African), a few of whom had been filmed behaving badly on the Paris Metro.
Holmes, a Manchester United fan, puffed up, sat up straight and told viewers that things were rosy at Old Trafford, because sat close to the manager’s dug-out are a few obvious ethnic fans. Said Holmes:
“The group of guys in turbans at Manchester United sends out a lovely message.”
Hear that, lads. You thought you were just watching the game. But it turns out that you are making Holmes feel morally right-on and showing Chelsea fans (all of whom are racist) just how super anti-racist Manchester United is. TV cameras used to just pick out blondes in the crowd; now
they scan the faces for signs of an ethnic minority. (Maybe that’s why they’re called Sikhs, Eamonn, because you seek them out?)
PS: If one of you tuban wearers can come out as gay (sport dog collar, leather merkin and rainbow turban) and invite a Muslim friend along (and please make sure she wears a burqua), then all the better for it, guys.
PPS: You are Sikh aren’t you, and not Molly Parkin fans (see below)?
Andy Gilderasks: “When will the moderate, City supporting members of the Sikh community speak out against these United extremists?”
Not soon enough, Andy…
