    You have proved what I was stating. There is a class system, not a race system. You come from a wealthier background than me and therefore got more privileges.

    I went to a private school (scholarship for poor backgrounds) and there were lots of Asians there who come from a much wealthier background and they had much more privileges than me.

    There is no race privilege. There is class/wealth/status privilege of course but that is the same in every country in the world FFS!!

    The problem with this kind of attitude is that we gloss over what the real issues are in these communities:-

    Drugs.
    Street robberies.
    Gun crime.
    Absentee fathers.
    Gangster lifestyle so kids don't go to school/work hard etc.

    Let's get real here and get back to dealing with the true underlying issues not some make believe White Privilege shite.

    I still disagree to some extent with you ken. We only need look at footie to see that ethnic minorities are not equally represented in football management.

    I'd go as far to say, there are more professional football players from working class upbringing than more privileged. Yet, more white players progress to management, where as a lot of ex black footie players move into punditry.

    There’s way more black rappers than white

    It’s disgusting and a clear example of black privilege in the music industry

    Sure and I have thought about this, let's name some BAME managers who have managed at a decent level.

    John Barnes
    Paul Ince
    Chris Hughton
    Ruud Gullit
    Jean Tigana
    Chris Ramsey
    Darren Moore
    Terry Connor
    Nuno Espirito Santo

    All of the above have been given decent jobs and, apart from three, they have been shocking.

    Let's look at it this way.

    Percentage of BAME players was 33 per cent on the opening day of the 2017-18.
    Percentage of BAME in UK was 13 per cent in 2018.

    The Premier League is racialist against non-BAME football players. Let's all take the knee, loot and pillage, burn down buildings etc.

    This guy took over as boss of Credit Suisse when I worked there.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidjane_Thiam

    Black, he had 50 000 mostly white employees under him.

    Race had nothing to do with him getting the top job of course, he come from prominent African family who were very rich. I could have done his job (I reckon so anyway) but wasn't given the chance. Do I blame my race, of course not, it is down to class/wealth/status etc.

    Anyone else remember that rule they brought in (not sure if it's still in place) that clubs had to interview at least 1 black person for the manager's vacancy? So even if the guy had very little credentials and limited managerial success as @huntingground stated then it was still mandatory to interview at least one?

    That was an utter joke. You get an interview if your CV is good enough and you get the role if you're the best man for the job. That should go for any profession. Black, white, rainbow coloured, doesn't matter.

    Do people honestly believe that PL clubs are THAT racist that they would deny their own team of success if it meant hiring a black man? Come off it. That's up their with David Icke conspiracies about lizard people and shape shifters.

    White/foreign managers just seem to excel more. Lets be honest here. Just like black people tend to be better at sprinting. Probably has something to do with their genetic make up. Is it racist to say that? Nope. Do white managers get more 'privilege' than black? Fuck off. They just tend to be more successful.

    Well said mate.

    Money and success rules in football so they would employ ANYONE if it meant they achieved that.

    That rule is retarded and I think it should fall under racial discrimination.

    I went to university with a lad who's father was CEO of Candy (Italian electrical manufacturer of washing machines etc : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_(company)). His Dad was a Knight of the Realm and very rich, his son was a fookin waster. He didn't finish his degree, came out of Uni and got a job as a trader for an investment bank in the City (my dream job FFS). I completed my degree, couldn't get a job and worked as a plasterer in Birkenhead for a year until my career got going (I paid for an IT course to kickstart my career).

    No race involved, of course not, it is down to class/wealth/status etc.

    @huntingground is not possible there could be racial privilege and a class system privilege in society?. Your posts read as if there can be only be one and not the other.
