I actually thought you was joking....thatís got to be the most ridiculous post of the year. Not even a hint of racism involved here...
The banana celebration of signing new players has been going for years!

Welcome to the Yid Burger
:banana: :banana:



Its new to me but in the current situation surrounding racism it seems absolutely ridiculous.

Thinking a planet spurs page somewhere in the ether of the World Wide Web is doing anything for or against racism by displaying or withholding emojis in case they are misinterpreted by a passer by or a misunderstanding member is ridiculous.

What’s the solution to your problem? Completely eradicate bananas from the dictionary and emoji bank in case they offend?

That’s more so ridiculous. To be fair you jumped to a racial assumptions over bananas based on the colour of the player we are signing. That’s on you.

Can we just enjoy the fact Levy is spending money now :spurs:

:clap:

To cut Griff some slack. There’s two things that may have happened here:

1. He’s not about during transfer windows that often
2. Levy has spent so infrequently over the last 6 windows, griff hasn’t noticed our trademark :banana:

Yes, just quoted some old threads replying to bananas on white/non black players to show Griff

Itís not even the fact itís a banana, itís all about his dance and delighted face that expresses how we all feel when levy spends lol :banana:

Just think you have to be careful with a word like bananas in relation to a black player because of the current racial abuse environment that we live in.

Why would there be any need to be careful of that on a small relatively anonymous forum tucked away in the corners of google...

Where the entire majority of long standing users, (several of whom are black or mixed race) are telling you repeatedly the emoji is the forums signing celebration emoji.

An emoji that has been used for Chiriches, Eriksen, Lamela, Jan, Lloris, Lo Celso, Toby, Jansen, Llorente, Foyth, Dier

You don’t get to be outraged on behalf of what others would think, were they here with zero context, context that we as a group are collectively black and white (excuse the pun) giving you.


Talk about putting a f***ing downer on the Burgerman transfer

The bottom line is few of us know the background colour or creed of each other on here....if there was a dancing broccoli emoji, it would be broccoli! Dancing in anticipation and excitement is the key.

I know a Dutch stalwart PSV fan and he was surprised and gutted over this transfer...time will tell.
