Horseshit.

If Kamara feels like he wants to take a knee to protest against racism then why does he have to do with knuckle dragging idiots in our support booing him? 
 

They aren't booing him though

Next you’ll be telling me that the Tartan Army didn’t boo Ryan Jack, they just booed the concept of him being a Rangers player.

Obviously it was because he's a rangers player,

I genuinely find it hard to believe that anyone booing today believes that the players are doing anything other than protesting against racism - racism many of them have faced.

No one can surely believe that the taking of the knee by these, and every other footballer who does it,  is in support of some Marxist ideology. These players have said why they are taking the knee. 

I can only think of two reasons for booing the taking of the knee - one is that those booing are just fucking thick. The other is that they're racist.

The footballers most likely don't believe in the extreme ideologies of the blm, but trying to deny the links between taking the knee and the blm is very hard to do

Football had its own non political anti racism initiative, why did this political movement need to be introduced?

After the England debacle it’s quite obvious why players feel they should continue to take a stand and rightly so. I would question anybody’s morals that has a problem with people making a stand against racism. Also, not really a great start when we are trying to get Goldson to sign a new contract and some of his own fans are churning out that shite. Absolutely no need.

There’s no concept. He is a Rangers player. That’s why he got booed. Who’s  gonna take the knee for that and would it help?

It's dead fucking easy to do. The players say it's an anti-racism protest. End of. 

But you're trying to tell them how they should protest against racism? Fucking really?

I missed the start so can't comment on the what happened with taking the knee.

My thoughts on taking the knee are that it has turned into a novelty with no single meaning. Some think its political so object because of the aims of BLM. Others go along in support of the players and there may be other reasons. Its turned into a conflicting issue where I am sure there is no ill will towards any of the players but people may be getting tired of being lectured at so it could be having the opposite effect. 

In my uneducated opinion I would like for it to stop, assume most people are decent characters and deal with anyone that actually does something racist rather than always pontificating to the crowds.

 

Edit: just to add I would never support booing a player, even after bad results.

Exactly what do these scumbags think booing will achieve.

The players are doing it to protest against racism so that's what it is.

Irrespective of anyone's private thoughts on the BLM movement/taking the knee, booing players that have their own perspective on it given what we saw last year and across social media recently is fucking pathetic. 

Also baffles me that on one of the first games back at Ibrox in glorious sunshine on a Saturday night, with a lot to look forward to this season, some nuggets can get themselves that worked up and angry that they boo a player taking a knee before the game.
