    ‘He would have controlled it if it was a banana.’

    I know it is a minority and many fans told this fella to fuck off but the racist undertones to the treatment of Maja is very sad.

    I love Sunderland but our away following embarrasses itself time after time.

    Ah, one of the ‘it was fine in 1970’ crowd is still up. That makes it ok though, right?

    What makes you think it isnt ok now? Tell you what we have in this country - free speech. Try it sometime. If words are going to hurt you that much I'd suggest you wont be lasting very long on here or in England.

    The word "banana" and you lose the plot? Absolutely pathetic. FFS.

    Piss off.

    How are you upset at a one person comment that (apparently) got shouted down? Who else was racist since you used the plural in the title?

    Aye, clearly one of the more sensitive left wingers in our support offended by anyone and everyone. Imagine being offended by the word "banana". FFS.
     
  14. So did anyone report this to a steward or police officer?

  15. This. No level of racism is acceptable but if it's one knacker then, well, unfortunately there's not much you can do about it (other than telling him to fuck off). It doesn't reflect badly on other Sunderland fans, not as if it's a chant that a load have been singing. We have the odd arsehole racist fan, so does every club.

    It's the context in which it was allegedly used. There is no condoning it

    This.. . why do some people like to put our fans in the majority when it's the very very minority

    No one gives two fucks. And its only by raising such an insignificant issue from one person in the crowd that this sort of shite gets a platform. Ignore the fuckers and they will go away. Stop being offended over the slightest thing. Fucking ridiculous.

    Imagine thinking that saying that about a black player in this day and age is acceptable :D

    Thick as fuck.
