Saluting Sol

Section:

Sol Campbell should be saluted for participating in the Operation Black Vote campaign to encourage minorities to register to vote

 

“If you don’t register to vote, you’re taking the colour out of Britain”, suggested Sol Campbell in a caption to accompany a photograph of himself with his face coloured white. His bold move, as part of photographer Rankin’s campaign for Operation Black Vote, however, attracted both praise and criticism this week.

One critic claimed that the former Arsenal and England footballer turned anti-‘Mansion Tax’ campaigner “sees racism around every corner” and went as far as to point out: “WTF [sic]? So white people ‘blackening their faces is racist, black person [sic] ‘whitening’ is not? Where is the outrage?”

 

Frankly, anyone who shares this view entirely misses the point as in posing for Rankin, Sol Campbell and others such as David Harewood, June Sarpong and Tinie Tempah have encouraged an under represented group to participate in the electoral process. How on earth can that be a bad thing?

    1. Racism is never a good thing. If there were more blacks voting than white people in London then we should never say “vote otherwise we lose our whiteness”. Disgraceful campaign by Sol, who seems like a nice a guy.

      • Well said Jackie! If “sees racism around every corner”…….. “WTF [sic]? So white people ‘blackening their faces is racist, black person [sic] ‘whitening’ is not? Where is the outrage?” isn’t racist, I am Hilary Clinton.

    2. I would like to meet the person who made these comments. I am black and I support Operation Black Vote. This ignorant moron needs to understand how stupid what they have said truly is.

    3. Racist? Sol Campbell is the ******************** racist. He is a ****************** and a **************** and he should remember his ****************** rots. Instead, he supports the ************* Tory scum and lives in a £25 million house with his *********** white wife. He dated rich women and ************** previously and hangs around with millionaire **************** bankers. He speaks for no one and he definitely does not speak for me. He is black **************** and I am black myself. Do not support him and his ************** chums. [EDITED TO REMOVE PROFANITY]
