Bernando Silva upsets Kick It Out (Mendy Tweet)

Kick it out have released a statement condemning a tweet the Man City player sent to his team mate in which he compares an image from a sweet character.

They say it's racist and have reported it to the FA.

Personally, I don't think it's meant to be racist in the slightest. I keep coming back to the idea if it was a black player sending the same thing to another black player or even to a white player with an equivalent image (such as a twinky) it wouldn't be looked at twice.

If it was a stereotypical or offensive image with a link to racist behaviour such as a monkey or a banana fair enough, but this seems like an innocent joke between team mates.

What about that picture wasn't an offensive stereotype?

What about it was???

Maybe I'm being naive, I just can see the idea that the image doesn't have any hair and his head is a little rounded which I'm guessing is the joke between the two?

With the current climate in mind its not a leap to say it was at best an ill advised thing to post, I can't say I would...

Is it really racist? Is there any animosity between the two or is it just a private joke? Whatever it is, it probably isn't the best-advised thing to do. There will always be someone somewhere ready to jump on it. If it is malicious, he deserves all the backlash he gets.

I tend to agree with Shipps on this one.

Just remembered we are playing them in a couple of weeks.

Nasty racist should be banned

Disclaimer: I do not believe Bernardo Silva is a racist.

Just people being offended on behalf of someone else who wasn't offended by it himself.

Probably not wise to send on a public platform though in this day and age...

If Mendy posted a picture of a white character that he thinks Bernardo Silva looks like, would that be considered as racist too?

Silva needs to get in touch with Hennessey's legal team. Then I'll await his next tweet saying "I didn't know that Mendy was black."

I feel Kick It Outs position is not based on the relationship between Silva and Mendy but between Silva and the millions of people that look up to him. It may be a joke between them, but will it be a joke when someone else is inspired to use it maliciously.

Make the joke, just don't do it on a public forum. I make completly unacceptable comments to my friends, but I don't publicise them

What was Mendy's reply?

We are in real danger of exaggerating offence where it is not warranted to the point real offences no longer have any meaning.

Mendy called the police and had BS arrested. When that happened they found BS in nazi uniform with blackface.
