PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
FFS. Pathetic.

"Gordon Taylor’s leadership of the Professional Footballers’ Association is back in the spotlight after it emerged a complaint was made that he referred to black players as “coloured” at an event arranged to promote diversity and racial equality.

Taylor has told the PFA he cannot recall using the alleged term when giving a talk almost a year ago. A spokesperson for the players’ union said: “Gordon firmly believes he didn’t say it and it is not language he would ever use. He has led in this area for 40 years and understands fully the sensitivities.”

There is no suggestion that Taylor is racist. The claims – if true – could further fuel perceptions that his time as the PFA’s chief executive should end."

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
My great aunt, who with her husband had run a farm in Kenya (when it was pronounced Keenya), used to refer to her native employees as "boys" even if they were older than she was. That shocked me; the word "coloured" does not (where it is an adjective not a noun) and it is hardly different from the current buzz words "people of colour".

There'll be a few red faces over this, I'm sure.


Am I allowed to say 'red faces'?

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
Taylor, who I am sure never meant to give offence, is way past his sell by date. The PFA needs a leader who young millionaires and the not so rich professionals can relate to.

You'd think that Taylor would take his millions and walk away the out of touch twerp.

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
'Their individual accounts claim that they were so aggrieved about the use of the word “coloured” a complaint was made to a senior PFA official who is involved with On the Board.....'

So aggrieved that they waited 1-year to make a complaint? I know that's what I do when I'm 'aggrieved' about something...

Well we have few, er not sure what to call thems now, at work withwhom I get on very well, workplace mates if you like

Maybe its an age thing or they are being polite, but not once have any showed any kind of negative response to my refererencing 'black' or 'coloured' as a descriptive in general dialogue

Surely its the context of such adjectives?

Speak to so and so, who is that, you know the black lad on the right - could be the ginger bloke or the blonde bird for all I care, and them it seems too, had the very conversation with a black lad and said I am beyond trying to keep up with trend titles and he laughed and agreed

But not those that spend their entire lives wanting to find division where there is nothing but concord, busy interfering cunts who are usually recognised by all around them as just plain grief

Fuck me there is a whole lexicon of redundant terms but whats wrong with calling a spade a spade?

Ooops

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
Older people do use the term coloured. And they do it out of politeness. I fucking hate cunts who jump on people for this. It's so pathetic. People that dig out older people for saying this are just sad pathetic cunts.

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
Basically a pathetic non-story.

People should stop pandering on this...he should say he doesn't believe he said it, but if he did then so what because people should focus on the real issues at hand rather than a term potentially misused in a perfectly innocent context, and with no less honourable intentions than had the 'accepted term of the day' been used.

Until people start to stand up against this kind of shit, the PC brigade keep being cunts.

Apologists for this kind of shit are what gives it the oxygen to breath.

My dad still says this. Just an age/generation thing really. I try and correct him just in case someone somewhere is going to be offended by him

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
I thought we'd gone full circle on this anyway. The phrase currently approved for usage when talking about non-whites is People of Colour. Not that much different from my grandad saying coloured. Though to be fair he was also prone to use the word that rappers use to describe their brothers too.

Re: PFA boss Gordon Taylor uses the C word
To the majority of people it's a harmless comment where no offence was meant, but there are many (especially the coloured's :o)) who want to find offence in everything.

I'm out on the piss with my black mate Al tonight and she would be horrified by this and always looks for offence and racism in EVERYTHING, even when it isn't there.

Could be an age thing as she's 50, as generally my younger black and Asian pals couldn't really give a fuck about such things, as let's be honest it's a non-story and there's only something to give a shit about if you're offended by nothing.
