It’s a question that we should all be asking, especially given that the leftist media have swarmed on this as though it’s the most critical news occurring at the moment.
Now many of us can agree that people are equal and deserve to be treated with respect. I don’t believe we should boo anybody and I include footballers in that.
The media have been swift in their condemnation of all white people, even ones who don’t like football and never attend along with white people who don’t know who Adam Goodes is.
This is supposedly the proof of our ingrained racism – white people that is and no other ethnic or national origin.
The media collectivises all white people together, as though we were ants functioning as one mind.
Why is this acceptable?
Because some white people have done wrong in the past.
The so-called “progressives” love these kinds of stories and that’s why the media is saturated in it. They always prance in declaring themselves as the mature adults who have come to chide the foolish children, represented by white people in general.
White racism seems to be the only acceptable form of racism because apparently only white people have ever wronged others based upon superficial features like skin colour.
We must be able to look throughout all history and find only a harmony of multicoloured utopia, where everyone accepted each other and civilisations rested at peace.
But that’s a total farce.
Consider how well non-Arabs are received in many parts of the Middle East and why the population of Japan is almost entirely homogenously Japanese for a start.
Does anyone really believe that different appearances were never a factor in the myriad of wars in human history?
As I have stated, there will always be people who judge purely by appearance and treat people differently accordingly and as I have stated, we should not do this because we are all made in God’s image and are precious to him.
But we need to stand against the constant barrage of lies about white Australians being the only racists that ever existed.
Former footballer Jason Akermanis has done just this in speaking out against Goodes and the media’s collective accusations:
Brisbane Lions great Jason Akermanis has told Adam Goodes to stop “playing the victim” and says those who label the booing of the dual Brownlow medallist as racist are kidding themselves.
As AFL and NRL players rally behind Goodes, who has taken extended leave and is reportedly considering retirement, Akermanis said fans had the right to boo anyone they like, whenever they like.
“Any stupid journalists who said that they’re racist is kidding themselves,” the Brownlow medallist and triple premiership player told Fox Sports on Thursday.
“I got booed and no-one ever said it was racist. (Former rugby league star) Benny Elias got booed when we were in Queensland because he was from New South Wales. Umpires get booed every week.
“Adam Goodes has got to stop looking like a sook and stop making it about him in this sense, and also he should stop trying to play the victim.”
Akermanis said it would be a shame if Goodes decided to retire over the controversy, outlining the 35-year-old needed to make a decision about “whether he’s for the club or for himself”.
“If you don’t play, who’s winning?” Akermanis said.
“For Adam and for me and for anyone else who’s been booed, which I have over many years and got called even worse names than what he did, you cannot let them win.”
While I certainly don’t agree with everything he says, he does make some valid points and I certainly remember watching Akermanis get booed time and time again last decade. If anyone can relate to Goodes experience, Akermanis is one of those people.
Interestingly, my recent discussions about this matter have confirmed that other people are getting sick of being lumped together with legitimate racists just because we all share the same skin colour.
I think that’s fair.
The reality is that plenty of other Aboriginal players are not getting booed any more than non-Aboriginal players so it seems to be more than black skin behind this controversy.
And if white player start sticking it to the crowd, they should expect to be booed just as Goodes has.
Condemnation can be rightly levelled at people who are actually racist but claiming everyone is to justify being racist against white people is as equally wrong as racism against Adam Goodes.
My white skin doesn’t determine my behaviour but to some people, skin colour seems to be everything and they just can’t move past defining people, both individuals and groups, by this superficial feature.
And I’m writing mainly about the so-called progressives and their bullying media empire here.
“Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:3-5 ESV
