    You can't be racist if you're the minority. This is the sad truth. Heard many minorities calling other people racist but uses such language with indiscretion.
    Racism is becoming overused and many have used it to harrass people.

    eg The Labour Party, in the not too distant past people were branded racist and bigoted if they uttered the smallest criticism about mass immigration and multiculturalism. Then they realised it was a vote loser..........................

    I mean, supposing it was Rio who called his brother Anton a "Black Berkshire Hunt", would he stand to be charged in the same way that John Terry was?

    Never heard this used before but assume it means the same as Coconut.
    I assume this has been used because Ashley Cole stood in a court room swore an oath and told what he perceived as the truth.
    Did the pathetic Rio actually think he should stand up lie because they were both black.
    Thank god he was left at home during the Euros and thank god he was never handed the captaincy because I could imagine a dressing room with blacks on one side whites on another and choc ices somewhere in the middle

    To be honest I don't know.
    But if the law is not an ass then yes he should stand to be charged otherwise that discrimination.
    Yes?

    Of course neither of them are black anyway.

    ONE of their parents' may have been.

    This is what happens when you have people with brains the size of peanuts being given a voice.

    The word Kn0bhead was bandied around a lot in the trial. A word that's often sprung to my mind viewing those painful episodes where a mike was thrust in Rios face post match - particularly on those thankfully rare occasions when he left the treatment room to masquerade as England Captain. Key words together, string, sentences, two, can't. He keeps himself and thousands of half wits amused on twitter though.
