    When labelling somebody as Racist, I thing they need to categorise it more.
    Similar to when people are asked about their religious beliefs. Are you a Catholic?.....” Well I was born and raised Catholic, but I’m not really a practising one now”.


    Practising – Is actively engaging in words/actions categorically racist or encouraging racism on a regular basis.


    Lapsed – Was brought up to uphold racist beliefs, but over time, has drifted away from the flock, only occasionally partaking (ie. still having racist mates / laughing at racist jokes)

    Casual - Either unaware they were being racist or brushing it off as just banter, with the defence (How can I be racist, my brother in-law is coloured. Or in Peter's case, "look at how many goals I unselfishly set up for Andy Cole" ).

    I think Beardsley is a lapsed Racist.

    Why do we need to categorise it more? He said to a Black player at Go-Ape, "You should be used to this?" WTF. That's not banter. Same as hissing sounds to Spurs fans, it's a fucking disgrace.

    There was a black player in the 80’s who played for Newcastle, Tony Cunningham, who was nicknamed “Wor Darkie”!
    Geordies have form for this kind of thing.

    I am confused by the comment in bold. is racist discrimination not the exact same as racism?

    Seems like a very odd defense.
