Racist Tropes 20:09 - Aug 10 with 3515 viewsKropotkin123

Calling Aluko a 42yo, because he is Nigerian. It's a racist trope and is unacceptable.

Also, what is with people putting lol on the end of Nsiala's name? Just grow up.

Anyone who should be listening. Both were said in the chat today. Seen the references to Finidi's age in the article when we signed Aluko. The lol for Nsiala is commonly thrown around.

Is it or is it relating to Finidi George and the questions over his age (or was that also a racist trope)? EDIT: Are you saying that associating the two due to them being the same nationality is racist?

The lol on the end of Nsiala is just ridiculous. What any fan thinks that achieves aside from attempting to undermine a player's confidence I have no idea.

Not seen either on here.

Just seems a bit patronising and not needed.

How has Aluko got anything to do with Finidi? Simply, it is correlated because he is ethnically Nigerian. Him signing should be no different to anyone else. And certainly shouldn't be used to put him down.

Fair point. Both actually Nigerian internationals who have finished playing for them so could be seen as the relation rather than due to their race.

Certainly unnecessary but unconvinced it is racist (although can see why it might be).

Linking them for having both represented Nigeria is fine, but I haven't seen the article.

No need to raise the age issue re Aluko, but age fraud was a genuine issue in the past and isn't a myth.

The 42 year old reference was to the Newport County player who is 42 years old.

Aluko wasn't born in Nigeria, he was born in houslow so his age is correct.

Kevin Ellison is 42, playing for Newport.
I heard that on the radio because I was impressed he was still playing at that age.

Finidi was a tremendous player. I don’t think Aluko needs to lose any sleep worrying about anyone drawing parallels.

It isn't just this one example though.

"Worried when a Nigerian international is mentioned" straight from the article when Aluko is about to sign.

Others have made "jokes" about it too.
