I follow Hull City FC, and have done for many years. When I saw the above post on Facebook it made me angry. Professional Football, like so many other sectors in society, are proficient at deluding themselves into thinking that doing nothing some how equates to doing something. Remaining silent on issues of social injustice does not combat them, it is simply an expression of apathy. It is the same as doing nothing.
Choosing not to speak out never achieved anything positive when it comes to improving the society in which we live. Indeed, many in power see the silence of the majority as tacit approval for their not doing anything about matters such as the hatred aimed at certain groups due to the innate prejudice inculcated in other larger groups.
In posting the above on Facebook I am sure that Hull City FC felt very good about themselves, and why not, they were not alone; all of the English Football League did exactly the same. Their collective delusion is that they have done something positive, taken a stance, stood alongside someone. They have done no such thing. They have achieved nothing. That is the sum total of every such post that appears on social media platforms like Facebook. It looks like you did something when in the real world you did nothing at all.
