Why do you keep saying behind a computer. We're all on the ******* computer. What are you saying? You want to punch the guy's head off?

Chill out and try bit of love. It did no harm , mate.. we are all just human beings at the end of the day

**** me, the indisputable fact here is these songs were sang in a racist manner. Have these songs appeared at any other away game? Would they have been sang at somewhere like Reading? Bo**ocks would they. 
 

Utterly ashamed that anyone associated with my team did this today. 

Would hope not because readings ground is in the middle of nowhere

You know for certain that happened? It appears it probably did, but no one has confirmed what was said so you’re making things up at this point.

compared to a chant that definitely happened, and presumably was from a large number of people rather than one or a small number of idiots?

You’re right that they aren’t the same, but both are terrible

So they walked off claiming racism for a laugh,what a pathetic post

Also stand by what I said a few days ago about it seemingly being reported/more prevalent at away games in recent times.

Don't know why however!

I think it’s that “away from home” day out / no responsibilities mentality. Like they feel less likely to get court, tends to be more alchohol involved etc.

I’m not saying that, I said it appears it did happen but there’s no proof or evidence yet. It’s also not been shared in the media exactly what was said, you’ve just guessed and made it up.

Yes I'd be more than happy to report and call out any racist behaviour, they are an embarrassment to the club. Hopefully as per Jon Lansdown's tweet the individuals or groups can be identified and reported.

I haven’t seen any evidence of the chanting today so I guess until I see it I will take it with a pinch of salt

Herd Mentality this - People will follow the crowd irregardless of personal opinion and rationality.

The best way to avoid it going forward is better education and condemning it when it happens, not excusing it because “half the stand were chanting it”.

@Dredd

Don't know about away but I do recall at home some similar well 'Small Town in Asia' I'm thinking of, chants v Leicester in 2010 and 2013.thread about each on here from back then anyway.

Quite possibly. No less abhorrent. 
Given the events in Bulgaria this week too you would have thought this may have been in the backs of people’s minds. Given events here and at Yeovil’s game today I guess not. Hope nobody doing this was spreading their ‘outrage’ on social media....

Completely agree, in fact his conviction for contempt of court , nearly let the perpetrators of serious sexual abuse charges a way out. 

That is not a fact. It is your opinion. It is a fact that the Attorney General felt that Tommy Robinson had not prejudiced the trial at Leeds. Hence after his successful appeal charges against Tommy Robinson were altered to reflect this .

When People start with the name calling, no matter what side there on, they lose the argument.  Abuse when nothing constructive to say and because you dare question  there perceived right to be always right. Some folk just dont like to get there views challenged. So of course that makes the challenger racist, thick, far right, ect ect ect.

Pretty sad really.

His actions, which he was convicted for and served a prison sentence for, came extremely close to collapsing the trial as one of the defendants appealed as a direct result of what he did outside the courtroom. That is a fact

Maybe i should report them to jon lansdown he will fix all the worlds religious problems.

This isnt saudi at the end of the day, you can attend a football match and feel free to discuss religion.

 

Saying it’s about religion is such nonsense. People are chanting ‘small town in Asia’ because of the town’s large Asian population. Lots of the other things reported (chanting England at Asian supporters, chanting Tommy Robinson’s name etc.) is racist. People pretending it’s all about religion and they’ve not prejudice towards Asian people but just Muslims - not that that’s ok in the first place - are deluding themselves. Far better to admit that a minority of our fans are racist, and that the club needs to be prepared to do something about that.

I totaly agree dave, therefore they are no better than tommy robinson.

One team in keynsham one poster here even suggested christians are quote fair game.

I dont wish to name and shame him, because this would be unchristian.

I even invited him to a church i attend twice a month in st pauls to discuss his issues with us.

This is documented here .

It’s difficult for me because I had family who grew up in Luton and were forced out and what has happened to that place is disgusting and if you go there and speak to the locals you would know,so no comment 

When you say 'forced out' what happened exactly?

So, based on the support shown at Luton,  and on here for known racists and racist organisations, the answer to the question from the original post is,

Yes,

racism is a problem at city games... 

This does reflect a wider trend in society- populism and vilification of foreigners- encouraged by the right wing media, which is supported by a lot of the population.
