A serious message

Frank Lampard, Ledley King and others appear in anti-racism video

The video is question…

Here’s a new video from the chaps and chapettes at Lets Kick Racism Out of Football. It’s been written by David and Ivor Baddiel to raise awareness of the ‘Y-word’.

David said this:

“The film is not intended to censor football fans.It’s simply to raise awareness that the Y-word is – and has been for many, many years – a race hate word.

“It’s our belief that some football fans may not even realise this, and the film is designed therefore to inform and raise debate.”

    Everytime I see Gary Lineker feature on an infomercial such as this, I’m reminded of when he was hoodwinked on Brass Eye: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7k9UxXgmQg

    Brilliant.

    Arkan – If you think that it is acceptable to chant anti-semitic songs and that trying to dissuade people from doing it is “PC bullshit” then you are clearly an idiot. And most likely a Daily Mail reader.

    Glad to see someone saying something about this. There’s no place in football for this crap.

    I’ve always heard the term but never knew what it meant. It’s quite sickening really… Good video.

    What’s the P word?

  • jittah // April 15, 2011 at 3:40 am

    I don’t know what the P word is either, but calling people yids or anything racist is pretty fucking stupid, those chanters are out of their tiny little minds

    P word is Paki, no?

    Didn’t think it was a big deal, but that Auschwitz chant was awful.

    Just to clarify, I didn’t know what “the Y word” meant before the video.

    Oh looks a little disturbing haha. Ledley King is having a son which is due anytime now I guess another baby boy for him to join the baby baller brood. His daughter Tianna will have a life long play mate! Arrrrrrr. This is her Twitter @EmmaPaton25 and fb page http://facebook.com/emma.paton2 , so adorable.
