…sometimes boring, sometimes dumb
…a wonderful game
…people don’t have to blame
…exciting when Drogba scores…
…and sadly sometimes full of racism
But football is …still…GREAT!
By Mariyana Stoyanova
IT’S SOMETIMES BIG AND IT’S SOMETIMES SMALLl
it’s sometimes big
and it’s sometimes small
some people think
it don’t matter at all
whether i‘m black
or whether I’m white
i know racism
sure isn’t right
By Felipe Arange
It makes you feel inferior and weak.
Racism is infecting and destroying
It makes peeps feel excluded and alone
Using words like nigga, paki and whitey
It makes you feel inferior and weak
but when you tackle it
you realize how strong you are
By Burton Josei
THE DISEASE OF RACISM!
Racism is the worst.
Racism is like a burp.
It comes from somewhere
That has no place in football
Racism is like a disease
It spreads around like a wind
The treatment is here
In everyone’s hands
Racism is to be stopped
By people saying “NO”
To you who want to hurt
And why I do not know.
By Yves Nahimana
Kick it Out Poems by pupils from Little Ilford School
Racism is one of the most abusive offences
and it should be ignored.
Once racist always racist.
If we try our best we can kick racism out.
Racism is one of the rudest things that I have heard of.
Why did racism come to the world?
Who knows, who knows.
Written by Hamza Gani
BANANAS… (Racism is Acrostic)
Racism is an outstanding arrogant cuss like you never heard before
A humongous life-time cuss
Can’t get away from it
It can’t get out of your mind you are trying to kick it out
Smack it out of you
Miss don’t being cussed
It should be knock out!!
Steaming up your head

When a racist person call me names,
It hurt my heart like when you punch someone.
I feel like hitting them but I don’t want him to get hurt like me.
Racism is rubbish,
It should be kicked out of the world,
like you kick a foot ball
so fast to get rid of your enemies.
Then you will have peace.
By Mohamed Zial Huq
RACISM IS WACK
Racism is a horrible thing
People get called names like black ape and allsorts
But they don’t know who it’s really affecting.
If the world didn’t have different coloured people it would be boring so god has done us a favor.
Just because someone is black doesn’t mean they are wack.
In the world we are all different colours but we are not different.
Just because people are black you torment them what is the whole point.
That’s all I have to say.
If you are racist then shame on you.
By Nicole Anderson Brown
THERE ARE RACISTS IN FOOTBALL AS WELLl.
Racism is bullying
Racism is cruel
It is also taking the
Mick out of other
There are racists in football
By Abu Amin
WE DON’T NEED IT (Racism Out Of Football-Acrostic)
Racism in football is definitely not wanted here
And it is also abuse what ever age they may be
Can’t you see it’s horrible – witness the hatred the fear
In gods eyes we are all equal but why can’t you see
Some of god’s creations are good at football some may not be
Mother’s father’s brother’s sister can all suffer the abuse
Out of order comments shouting out loud
Up in the stands shout boo see he’s black
The players have a job to do they only turn their backs
Only people cannot see the comments hurt
For stupid fool who are jealous of the comments that hurt
Forget them remember we don’t need it
On our football grounds
One day they will see
That everyone in this world
Black or white
All the same
Let’s realise it now!
Let’s kick racism out!
By Shereece Lee
RACISM IS UNWANTED IN THIS WORLD
Why is there no peace in the world?
Its only because of a very little thing
Racism is against our religion
and our culture.
Racism is rubbish
And racism is unacceptable
So many people have been crying
Because of racism
People in this world
Have to work as a team
Instead of being racist
People cuss each other
Because of their colour
Ignore them and report them
But show them
RACISM IS UNWANTED IN THIS WORLD
