Yeah Laz, I am sure that Anthony Hamilton made the whole thing up! Just like he made up StepneyGate!

Your act never ceases to amaze!

People listen up - ANTHONY HAMILTON CONTROLS F1!

As usual .. 5 ignorants spoiled it all !! instead of ignoring them they became the center of all ... but even if we think it's too much (there are lots of abuse everywhere ... but not classified as racism and then not taken so seriously) it should be stopped ... in sports this shouldn't happen !!

But is one actual incident and one reported incident actually worthy of a clamp down as if its a serious problem?
It's just pandering to one driver who is increasingly being placed above all else in F1.

Yes, my first impression was that ... don't disturb young Lewis !... it was a pity they didn't have "shut up and drive Lewis" instead of their masks !!

Ah but now any sign of dissent against Lewis will be made out to be racist, another Hamilton victory over the FIA and F1 in general.

Come the end of next season F1 will be split into two classes, The Hamilton class (where only he races) and the rest, that way Lewis will always win, unless he messes up like he did last season.

What about all the dumbasses on this forum who have cried foul about the supposed racism shown by the English against Alonso. I have heard things along the lines of I hate Hamilton, I wish he was hit by the bottle thrown at him...now how nice is that. You cry foul that everytime something is said it is to try revive his name or his hype. Certainly I don't think he needs it. In fact the problem is on the other side, Alonso is really not being spoken about much, possibly because he was a marketing nightmare last year. Sportsmanship was sadly lacking, he was getting his ass kicked by a rookie, and instead of acknowledging it, he cried to the Spainsh press about English favouritism, and the Alonso-sits gobbled it all up, after all it is impossible that anything he does is wrong. Which is why I laugh when I hear things like "Alonso was the real winner last year or he was the moral winner. Bullshit he was a loser like all the other drivers who finished behind Kimi. So get over it now, Alonso certainly does not walk on water, actually based on what he did to Macca last year he probalby was the one walking around with the 30 pieces of silver in his pocket.

Yes what about them?, the British press did mount a campaign that basically amounted to racism.

So you don't see all the 'I hate Alonso' nonsense, thats probably because you are part of that little gang.

And I've lost interest in the rest.

Yes yes and Baseball is the only situation where the black man can wave a stick at the white man and get away with it.

Laz, unlike your sacred game of football where it's ok for skinheads and twisted freaks to go to other countries and burn the place down just because their team loses. But Laz, you just lost the plot, what the f***are you thinking to make a statement like that, wave a stick at a white man and get away with it. that was plain stupid. This clown from Kissymeass in Florida is a fool.

As for you, "the truth" why not crawl back into your prehistoric world and stay there. obviously living where you do, you have been exposed to too much of the magical world of Disney and it's affected your judgement. Funny though I always wondered if those Pictures of Edison, bell and Einstein were fake.

Whoosh.......You fail to realise the sarcasm in my post, its saying what you go on to say in the second bit of your post, I am mocking someone who has that mentality.
Like your post alluded to.

As an aside, when I went to Florida my hotel was in Kissimmee, just down the road from the prison.

Oh and redneck, the bit you had a over the top reaction to (The baseball comment), its a quote from the film Mississippi burning.
Thought you would have known that one.

1.Spanish Newapaper Marca claimed shouts of "Puto Negro"(F**king Black) and "Negro de Muerda"(Black Shit) were clearly heard, and that LARGE SECTIONS of the crowd were involved.........only 5 ignorants.

2. Circuit Director Ramon Pradera installed staff to erect barriers around the Mclaren team paddock, because of fears for Hamiltons safety.........only 5 ignorants.

3. Stands directly above Mclaren garage were cleared of spectators to ensure that no debris could be thrown down when the car returned to the pit lane.........only 5 ignorants.

When people close their eyes to incidents like this, they play their role in enabling the reoccurance of such ugliness
