Are the Mail trying to create a "racism" story out of nothing here or is the journalist right to ask the question?

Simply just a natural coincidence of a situation that might occur all over the country in whatever line of work?

At first glance, they look like any bunch of young lads sitting down to a meal. In this case, they happen to be the England Under-20s football squad. Look more closely, though, and you will see a startling fact: one table is entirely inhabited by black players, the other by white.
The same pattern can be seen in other pictures taken at the squad’s training base during a tournament in France last month.

Exercising in the swimming pool, six white players line up alongside each other, while the black youngsters gather together at the other end of the pool. And on a line of training bikes, it is the same story. Black and white separated by colour.


So what are we to make of it?

I really wish someone would burn that shit rag down to the ground once and for all.
But where would we get our news about gypsies, migrants , the royal family and mega , mega death ice storms from if there was no daily mail ? ( oh and house prices ) :dk:

I've played for teams that were half black half white and generally that's just what happened. For example if it was just a case of hanging about before training usually the black lads would be chatting in one group and the white lads in another. Don't get me wrong everyone in the side got along well, regardless of colour but that's just how it went, nothing wrong with it

Absolutely stupid article.

People from similar backgrounds tend to hang out together as they relate to each other and like similar things. In any kind of sporting teams there will be people who are closer friends with some people than others. This is just a terrible attempt to create a racial debate that is totally unnecessary.

Don't dignify it by giving it clicks.

Opposing the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre!!!!
This is a newspaper that supported Moseley's fascist Blackshirts. They've toned it down a bit since then, but the general narrative is the same when it comes to race.

But then you'd have to put up with Diana/new wonder drug articles as well.

And where would we be without The Express's regular doom and gloom disaster weather articles by the inexecrable Nathan Rao? The man who truly puts the piss into 'piss poor journalism'.
