we know the UK CEs are bonafide massa's house boys .. they've been so bamboozled, that they cannot identify hidden racial comments because for them eyes , they only want and believe the WOWO ways ... i am sure they would have attacked Mr Willams for standing up against hidden racial connotations as well

Once you come out a 2nd time to try to explain your comments to the media , then you know you've messed up
.All klopp needs to do is apologize instead of digging. Everyone knows the epl mangers etc cry always when it comes to afcon... the fact he made those comments and claim he was taken out of context is the koko of the matter.. dude should be glad he made such a comment in the UK.... nah damage control bobo for dey on . This is unconcious bias ..

Exactly, someone in Klopp's position should understand this. I applaud the journalist for putting him on the spot. Klopp must regret it and it shows. Someone in his position should have known better.

Is that a complement to those 2? :D

I don’t condone racism or bringing down a race but there was nothing in that remark from the first presser that’s in any where near a talk own or racist. He was being ironic by pointing out the err of the questioner in disregarding AFCON.

Kai, this is sad on so many levels. There are a whole lot of things out there to get offended over but this is not one of them. If one is to be offended, be offended with Ojoro Babantunde for exhibiting such high level ignorance and proudly wearing it as a badge of honor.

You guys need to see the interview. It wasn’t jest, it was irony. He was actually making the point that it is a big deal. If you watched it, you would understand. It was like the phrase “there’s only the small matter of x y z”.

I’m all for holding people to account, but we water down the point and come across as shrill when it doesn’t chime with reality.

There's nothing wrong with what he said which is why he didn't apologise. The problem is too many natives don't really understand the nuances of the English language. The journalist came across as a *little* foolish.

PS: When I say a little, I mean a lot.

“Mr Babatunde” is a bit of an embarrassment.
And the even worse thing is that he doesn’t even know that he doesn’t know. :cry:

Chief, it wasn’t in jest….unless you classify irony as “jest”, which would be a mistake.

You've likely misunderstood the context around his use of the word "little".


… and there it is. There has to be at least one native running interference for massa. Never fails❗️


Cheers.
I have a track record on this forum on this forum for calling out racism and incidents where non-Africans insult or disparage Africans or African institutions.

You, on the other hand, have a track record of stupidly and banality. On the rare occasions I've found myself agreeing with your posts I will immediately take the opposite position just to distance myself from you.
The only record you have on this forum is hiding behind your facelesness to be insulting and abusive. You are an unrepentant coward. I hope that one day, you and I will meet face to face and we’ll see if you have the guts to be as verbally abusive as you are on a faceless forum❗️


Cheers.
mehn i would love to watch this fight, man go tanda for corner with one massive turkey , watching two grown men panting and throwing air punches left and right with no sense of aiming coordination :biggrin:
Who the f—- says there’s going to be a fight? I will have my posse hold him down while I flog the living daylights out of him🕵🏿‍♀️🤐😃❗️
