Following the sacking of manager Chris Hughton after four and a half seasons of unprecedented success at Brighton and Hove Albion, hard-working journalists have concluded that the Club must be institutionally racist. This conclusion has been reached by interviewing some other black people who have no connection whatsoever with the Club but clearly know all about the racist agenda that exists there.
It is claimed that, in order to deflect attention from the bigoted ethos at Brighton, a large number of footballers of various colours, creeds and backgrounds have played for the Club over the years, and continue to do so. In addition, the Club disguises its homophobic attitude by actively supporting the annual Pride parade in the city, and wearing rainbow laces and having a rainbow captain’s armband. This outward approach to inclusivity is reportedly fooling nobody within the press.
The search for Hughton’s replacement is underway, and several of the journalists reporting on the story have referred to the so-called Rooney Rule. Their in-depth analysis believes that this rule means that Brighton are obliged to interview at least one thick Scouser for the role.
