Harry Kane angered over abuse, and he isn’t the only one!

Harry Kane has shown his anger over the abuse of his teammates. But not just Kane, all the English leagues (F.A), politicians, the public etc., have condemned such behaviour.

Racist abuse was directed at Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka. Harry has said that those who abuse are not wanted, whether at national or club levels. And rightly so. Kane then went on to praise the players for stepping up in a high-pressured game. He also believed that the abuse players received needed the support of the nation rather than “the disgusting, abusive posts” they have been subject to since the Euro’s final.

Gareth Southgate also described the racist abuse as ‘unforgivable’ (Guardian).

The Metropolitan Police are now looking into and have said they will investigate the “offensive and racist” posts directed at players. Some of the abuse came from outside the UK, but a significant number also came from within these isles.

Tyrone Mings also took to Twitter to condemn the abuse and said, “Waking up today and seeing my brothers being racially abused for being brave enough to put themselves in a position to help this country, is something that sickens, but doesn’t surprise me.” He then went on to criticise Home Secretary Priti Patel, who described players taking the knee against racism as “gesture politics”.

Also, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Football Association condemned it as well.

Abuse of any kind should not be tolerated

My thoughts

I can’t understand why people need to abuse others for whatever reason. We should all stand together equally and united. Rivalry is one thing, but abuse is something else and should not be tolerated or accepted. That includes abuse over someone’s sexuality, nationality or sex; it isn’t acceptable. Apart from all that, if outed, it would have monumental consequences on your life, friends and family. The police do have the tools to combat such abuse.

We all should stand united and condemn racist abuse, homophobia, sexual abuse/ misogyny etc., which is not acceptable. We are all equal and should be treated equally, and we will be a better nation for it.

We must all stand up against abuse of any kind!

Peace and Love, Glenn
