The racist abuse towards Kyogo Furuhashi shames the Rangers support. I’m not one for buying into all the support are the same because they are not.
But there is no doubt there is an element within the fan base that continually and ritually dish out racist and sectarian abuse at will and think nothing of it.
Not less than six months ago, the whole of football united behind the club, including Celtic and their supporters, after Glen Kamara was allegedly racially abused on the football pitch.
Their support screamed from the high heavens about that incident, and quite rightly so, and there was a feeling of togetherness amongst the Scottish football support that racism has no place not only in football, but also society.
Which leads to me this thread on Rangers Media. Simply titled “The Sun running a story about racist chants on a supporters bus up to Dingwall” there was an open discussion about the racist chants towards Kyogo.
Now, let me start off by saying, there were members in this forum that completely denounced those fans on that bus and said they were mortified that they had shamed their support and club. But for every fan criticising the abuse, there were two or three others either denying the chants were racist.
But interestingly, a large proportion of the discussion was focused on the person videoing the chants and criticising breaking some sort of moral “bus code”.
Yes. I know. The moral of a bus code compared to the moral of being a decent human being is deemed more important.
So let’s have a look at some of the replies:
There are many, many more on this thread but I want to also offer balance because as I said before, not all are like this:
There is nine pages of it if you can be bothered going through it. I have and I advise you don’t.
Everyone Anyone, anyone?
