Velma Posted June 23, 2020 Share Posted June 23, 2020 Burnley is “ashamed and embarrassed” not by their decisive 5-0 defeat by Man City but by a banner flown over the match by a plane, reading: “White Lives Matter Burnley.” n a statement, Burnley said that the banner "in no way represents" what the club stands for and that they will "work fully with the authorities to identify those responsible and take appropriate action". (Burn;ley represent black lives only.) "Burnley strongly condemns the actions of those responsible for the aircraft and offensive banner," the statement added. (Offended by 'white lives.') "We wish to make it clear that those responsible are not welcome at Turf Moor. (Only BAME welcome.) "We apologise unreservedly to the Premier League, to Manchester City and to all those helping to promote Black Lives Matter. (Communists.) "The club has a proud record of working with all genders, religions and faiths through its award-winning community scheme, and stands against racism of any kind. (Unless it's aimed at white people.) Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards said seeing the banner was "disheartening". (But 'open season' on whites isn't.) "After how far we've come in these last couple of weeks, it really does hurt me," he told Sky Sports.(How far backwards.) "I agree everyone should have free speech but when it looked like everything was on the up there's a small fraction who want to ruin it." (Everyone except white folks.) Asked about the banner, City boss Pep Guardiola said society could not overturn 400 years of racial injustice in one week but added "we are going to change the situation".(Bullshit.) "We need time, the racism is still there. We have to fight every day and condemn the bad things," he said. (Unless the victims are white.) 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
