BBC complains there are too few "Asian" football players in top league. Peter Klevius complains there's too much cricket on BBC!
BAME people are over-represented on TV: Ethnic
minorities make up 22% of actors and presenters while only representing
12% of UK population. However, being muslim seems to be the most

"Black" Lord Ouseley, founder and chair of "anti-racism" organisation Kick It Out, said: “These statistics do not surprise me and I expect the proportion to go on increasing in the Premier League. “Young black footballers know now that if they are good enough they will not be discriminated against because if managers are prejudiced they would be cutting off their noses to spite their face."

noses to spite their face."
Peter Klevius analysis:
The money goes to top leagues which are more vulnerable for PC

Peter Klevius won't watch England-Scotland in women's football world cup - before Scotland is independent or UK participates as ONE country!
Peter Klevius (the extremely normal) loves football in all forms (except American handball). But only when it's fair. It's not fair when UK participates as a country in the Brexit game, but as four countries in football!
