It's the same with the owners as well. You never hear anyone say 'Yank Money' but you always hear 'Arab money/owners' being used. You see videos on Facebook 'City owners outside the Etihad' and it will be a video of Arabs rioting somewhere in the world.
Stones moved to us last summer and he has been in the spotlight in the media this season about his personal life rarely (think there was a story about him cheating on his girlfriend). But Raheem goes to Poundland and it makes he news?! Why?
There's still a massive problem.
Spot on, mate.
It doesn't quite add up - there are plenty of black players in the league and England squad who are not subjected to the same level of scrutiny from the press and other teams fans - so how does skin colour affect it?
That was my view as well, which was why I asked the question.
I still think it's because of him forcing a move from scouse1 to City, and being painted by our lovely unbiased media as a mercenary.
I don't think Stones attracts the same vilification, as he was always expected to leave Everton for a bigger club, whereas a lot of the media take the view that Liverpool is as big as you can get.
If it was the other way round, I think it would be Stones getting the shite.
