Is racism a problem at City games?

It is isn't it. Can you imagine if Christians, Jews, Hindus etc didn't follow the strict rules that Muslims counties have of living there. They wouldn't last 5 mins there 

This is an example of someone who knows very little thinking they know a lot.

If you are taking the piss out of someone because of their race.....it is racism.

If you are taking the piss out of a town because of the high numbers of a particular race.....it is racism.

Its very simple. If you cant understand that then your just not very bright.

Absolutely. People who sang “small town in Asia” are racists. People who sang about Tommy Robinson are almost certainly racists too.

Because Muslim based countries have religious laws that everyone has to abide to. 
 

Our country doesn’t have a majority religion. 
 

There’s no similarity

You seem to be implying that Muslims are breaking UK law and getting away with it? If not I don’t really get the point you’re making here.

All the people I know that have visited and live in Dubai and attend some of the famous all day brunch piss-ups still seem to be alive and well.

Well that’s not true, it’s clearly Christianity. 

Religion in Great Britain (2011 census)[1][2][3]

  Christianity (59.5%)
  No religion (25.7%)
  Islam (4.4%)
  Hinduism (1.3%)
  Sikhism (0.7%)
  Judaism (0.4%)
  Buddhism (0.4%)
  Other religions (0.4%)
  Not stated (7.2%)

Between 50-60% of brits never attend church, therefore Christianity isn’t a majority religion. 
 

Anyone can claim to be a Christian, but if you don’t have anything to do with it even on an irregular basis it doesn’t count imo

To be fair Dubai is quite modern and does try to attract the western world. I'd be referring to places like Pakistan, Iran, Yemen and maybe Saudi Arabia

India is home to nearly 200 million muslims and has had a Muslim population for over 1,000 years. 

And has huge problems, they also use the P word to describe their neighbours, who they really aren’t keen on, this is obviously the areas where the Muslims aren’t a majority.

A chant is not the same as chucking racist abuse at a player like happened today at Yeovil 

 

4 hours ago, joe jordans teeth said:

So it worse then people shouting you black so and so at a player

That is yes,the chant isn’t 

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

A new tactic from the right wing maybe...?  An "I'll see you outside, if you want some" approach   . Novel. Tommy would be proud.

Tribal intimidation tactics. Want to leave an impression on home fans we are Bristol City and they wont forget us. Pretty tragic really.

Its not a new tactic it's how the far right work. They manipulate thick people who dont understand how society functions. Uses them in the process.

That's why its embarrassing for the far right on here who fall for it.

Ol' Donald himself hasn't "done bad" for himself, but he's still a grade A cock and talks a total load of shite... what's your point?

I was in Thailand in June and met a few groups of Indians while on nights out. They absolutely hated Pakistanis and were very open about it. I had a few drinks with a Pakistani guy who spoke to me in a bar who actually worked in primark in town while at uni here. We ended up in a club and he was pretty friendly and trying dance with people. Most would play along apart from the Indian girls. I spoke to 3 later on at the bar and they said they didn't dance because he was Pakistani. Another night I took  an Indian girl back to my hotel which was owned by Bangladeshis I think. She was pretty quick to say how she didn't like them

**** 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.

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.

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 .
