The WOKE soccer team is just not WOKE enough.
A BBC Sports presenter introduced a bizarre segment which expressed concern about the English female football team comprising of players who are all white.
The presenter praised the team for securing an 8-0 victory against Norway to book their place in the quarter finals of the women’s Euro 2022 tournament but then dropped the bombshell: that the British Female Football Team was ALL WHITE. - the absolute horror.
“But all starting 11 players and the 5 substitutes that came on to the pitch were all white,” lamented the presenter, as if this was a bad thing, or even a thing at all. “And that does point towards a lack of diversity in the women’s game,” she added. Implying that the women's game was racist, the BBC presenter then went to a piece by black presenter Alex Scott about the same supposed ‘problem’.
The 'problem' that the BBC presenters imagine is likely to become the latest campaign dressed-up as news. Expect "English Women's Football Racist" stories to be peddled by the BBC.
This comes after Lenny Henry made a similar statement about the Glastonbury crowd lacked black people. Others jumped on the bandwagon suggesting that Glastonbury had never had a black artist on the main stage 'because of racism' even though Diana Ross, Stormzy, Jay-Z, and Beyonce have all been headline acts in recent years.
Facts don't need to get in the way of a good social justice campaign though.
The BBC would only be truly happy if the team consisted entirely of 11 black transgender men who came here illegally, but then would claim spectators were racist and transphobic if they mentioned it.
