The nation was behind the England football team as they broke the curse of 1966 and headed to the first major final in 50 years. Losing to Italy was hard, but to then witness the horrendous racial abuse of the wonderful players was hard to bear. The FA, the Prime Minister, Members of the Royal Family and every decent person has condemned this hatred and abhorrent behaviour that has no place in our society.
St Martin’s school community reaffirms condemnation of racism and this was also shared by Bayo Dosunmu, Acting Chief Executive in the statement below from Lambeth Council. Visit twitter to read the FA statement https://twitter.com/i/events/1414473844513861633
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28
