As opposed to trying to roll back voting rights, as in the U.S. Or refusing to admit anything happened, like IW.
Can't say the same about some of the posters on TF making excuses for why its acceptable.

Re: Scotland striker tweets racist rant

Williamsser, isn't griffiths showing the exact same attitude as all of those who are opposed to immigration? personally, i don't think such attitudes should be tolerated, but i wonder how many republicans, tea party morons, and conservatives throughout the world share in griffith's view.

if you're trying to show that racism exists in europe, then congrats, but there was no real need cos we all know that. just like we know it exists in the usa. if you're trying to show that it exists in football, then congrats, but we knew that already too. just like we know it exists in tennis.

Indeed, quite a few people were more than happy to share their negative stereotypes of football fans, despite the fact that millions of us enjoy and admire the contributions of athletes from around the world. I've also found that no matter where I am (outside of the US) I can strike up a friendly conversation over a beer about football with almost anyone. The idea that all football fans are racists is as stupid as the idea that no football fans are racists.

Anti-racism campaigners called on the authorities to punish controversial Hibs and Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths after he sent a racist tweet to one of his Twitter followers.

The SPL's joint leading goalscorer is being investigated by Lothian and Borders Police and the SFA - and faces separate disciplinary action from his club - after a heated exchange with one of the 13,000 Twitter users who follow him on the social network site.

Griffiths is understood to have told Livingston-based tweeter Zak Iqbal to: 'F*** off back to your own country ya clown' during a heated exchange on Thursday night.

The 22-year-old striker, whose loan deal at Hibs from English Championship side Wolves looks likely to be extended until the summer, later apologised and deleted the message before closing his account.

But Show Racism the Red Card last night described his comment as 'totally unacceptable' and challenged Hibs, the SFA and the police to dish out appropriate punishments.

A spokesman said: 'Show Racism the Red Card is saddened by Hibernian FC player Leigh Griffiths' tweet to one of his followers.

'We wish to see a Scotland free of racism and condemn all incidence of racism across social networking sites, in football and wider society.

'Online racism is as serious and damaging as face-to-face racism and the comments made by Mr Griffiths were totally unacceptable. We feel the negative reaction to these tweets are indicative that the majority of people in Scotland are in agreement with us.

'Mr Griffiths appears to have realised the grave error he made and apologised to Mr Iqbal and the general public.

'He'll now face possible punishment by his club and the Scottish football authorities. We hope the matter can be dealt with swiftly by the relevant authorities.
what's racist about this tweet?

you are probably speaking as an american. football will remain the most popular sport in europe no matter what. still, people here understand that some aspects of the football culture in europe are problematic. and i guess it is the tribalist, local patriotic aspect that attracts a disproportionate number of xenophobes and racists. who are still a tiny minority nevertheless. but they can ruin the fun for everyone, like at that milan friendly.

It's true, but nonetheless while in Britain, Europe and Mexico I've had many friendly conversations with locals about football. Most people, even football fans, are decent sorts who'd rather chat your ear off than bite it off. Not once have I had a bad experience.

White Sox games? Now those were scary.

I hear some of them like football, and even cheer for players of European and native descent.
