    I like it and there are some really good points in there too. I particularly liked the point about appreciating colour and race, as we are all different,and it's ok to recognise that, but we can still treat each other with respect. I also liked the point about making a stand and being a good example for others. Nice work.

    Hello Dave the Wasp 
    Thank for your feedback on my poem
    I was thinking about sending my poem to the football association to get them to put on their website as part of their campaign to kick racism out. 
    I would appreciate to hear what you think about my idea Dave the Wasp

    I think it's worth a shot, although I don't know much about the FA and how they deal with content submissions, but i guess you never know until you try. Also, I think a lot of organisations are quite active on Twitter, I'm thinking that they might have aTwitter account or something like that, which might be worth a thought. 

    I'd also like to say that I admire the fact that you share your work with the community, I used to try and write short stories, but was never brave enough to actually show them to anyone.

    Hi @Globster, I really enjoyed reading your poem about racism.  It is really good and thought-provoking.  We need to all stand  together and try to stamp out racism and that's what you are clearly conveying in your poem.  Well done!  I think that is a really good idea about maybe sending it to the FA to see if they can use it and a good point about Twitter that @DaveTheWasp has mentioned too.  Have you ever thought about getting your poems published?  They really are great and very engaging.  I wish you all the best with them.  :smile:

    Hi @Globster
                           Thank you for sharing another fantastic poem with the community. You are absolutely right there is no place for racism in society just as there is no place for any form of discrimination. Well done for sharing your poem on Twitter and I hope you get a positive response. Thank you.

    Hello 
    I have even tweeted my poem about standing up against racism to ex football player asking him if he would not mind retweeting my poem to his family members and friends and football colleagues
