Taking the knee at football games is anti-racist, so why is it being labelled ‘gesture politics’?

As a white, middle-aged man, I have no idea what it is like to experience racism in this country and it is unlikely that I ever will.

But what I know for sure is that racism is alive and kicking in Britain and that we must all stand united to wipe out discrimination and slurs of any nature.

This means standing up to online and physical abuse to everyone and calling out wherever we see it no matter how difficult that might be.
