Left4Change, a Labour backed Quango is notorious for campaigning against British Institutions with the word ‘black’ In it but this time they’ve angered Blackburn Rovers fans with their latest politically correct campaign.

Left4Change stated on their website, ‘The term Blackburn Rovers is potentially racist to black people and we view this as a blackism. It’s important that we outlaw this kind of racism if we are to live peacefully in a multicultural society. We have created a petition with the European court of Human rights to force Blackburn Rovers football club to change its name’

Angry football fans hit back at the petition and attacked the groups twitter page @Left4Change branding it ‘ludicrous’ and ‘outrageous’. 

Is Blackburn Rovers a racist term?

  1. I THINK THIS IS SO STUPID BLACKBURN ROVERS ARE A PROUD FOOTBALL CLUB WHO HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE 1875 SO FUCK OFF YOU SILLY TWATS BLACKBURN ROVERS WILL NEVER CHANGE THERE NAMES

  2. IS BLACKBURN A TOWN FULL OF RETARDS HOW CAN YOU FALL FOR THIS .SORRY I HAVE BEEN TO BLACKBURN AND IT IS FULL OF RETARDS

  3. What a load of bollocks! I notice that the idiots are claiming that the name could be potentially racist so this leads me to believe that this group is nothing more than a bunch of inept scaremongers.This is nothing more than some penile challenged idiot making a banal attempt at glorifying himself at the expense of others. Having lived in Blackburn all of my life without any problems whatsoever this just seems a futile argument from beginning to end!

  4. Which Rovers fan is sharing the club braincell?

    It’s clearly a wind up. The ‘Daily Bale’ ffs.

    You’re doing the stereotypes of yourselves no favours. But hey, get all up in arms about something that is taking the p*ss out of you – knowing you’ll go mental at it.

    UTC NNN

  5. Yes I totally agree it is very offensive to certain ethnic origins and sounds totally racist the quicker they change it the better in my view so it doesn’t offend anymore people!!

  6. this is stupid why are we putting up with this i for one have had enough i have been supporting blackburn rovers for all my life and the idea of having to call the team of my home town something else is preposterous i refuse to accept this in any way this is proof that the british government and the eu ar scared shitless of being called racist proof of their fear is the fact that the eu human rights act states that the uk government cannot impose any sanctions against asylum seekers who have seeked refuge in this country regardless of the fact that the government will sanction its own citizens for fuck all we need out of the eu so we can stop the fucking asylum seekers coming here claiming our money taking homes from our citizens and then allowing them to change anything they deam to be racist i for one will be voting for UKIP next year I WANT THEM OUT its our country our football team and i dont give a shit what anyone thinks its our country we dont need to change anything fuck of home your fucked up genetal mutilating Freaks

  7. If they want to change things go do it in there on country, to change Blackburn rovers they will have to change the home town of Blackburn as well. Things like is we should stand against.

  8. This is pathetic I’ve lived in Blackburn all my life, and no one i know with a different ethnicity views this as a attack to them! Blackburn is a historical name, and has been there for years, there is no way they are going to change the name because its only a small majority or people that agree, try reading a history book or even take a trip there you self, you will find most places you go in Blackburn has a mixed ethnicity, schools, the college and six forms, the university work places and even Blackburn rovers fans and workers, also blackburn rovers have an anti- racism program that they teach to children, they encourage welcoming of different ethnic groups. So to who ever it was that suggested the football name change stop now before you embarrass your self!

  9. Nobody would have thought it to be a racist term, only you stupid c***s, who have nothing else better to do, if you dont like f**k off to somewhere where your s**t would be welcome, its nut jobs like you that bring the EDL and BNP to our doorsteps. Blackburn (in Lancashire) is recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as “Blacheburne”, and later in 1187 as “Blakeburn”. This placename, and all of the others, share the same meaning and derivation. This is “the dark-coloured stream”, from the Olde English pre 7th Century “blaec”, meaning black, with “burna”, a stream, nothing racist about that, come on you BLUES, oh f**k me that might hurt a few depressed people, jog on!!!!!!!!

This is rediculous it is just a name and to all the ones who think it is racist it is fucking rediculous u get treated so much better in this country and then winge about a fuckin name of a football team that represents the town its in how about fucking deal with it or go the fuck back home u are just pathetic

  11. I would understand if the team was called burnblacks, then that would be racist, but there is nothing wrong with the word black or Blackburn(Town or Team).
    This racism crap is getting out of control. This is racist, that is racist, I’m offended by this and that. Shut the fuck up or go back to your own country. Didn’t you move to get away from your country?? Adapt and integrate just like everyone else has done for hundreds of yrs. Why should we have to change to accommodate you, your religion, your beliefs, your rights. WHAT?
    YOU MOVED HERE! DEAL WITH IT AND IF YOU CAN’T, GO HOME!!!

  12. There is no rasicm about blackburn rovers you muppets you all need to get an grip and stop causing trouble idolts

  13. This is stupid what the F IN hell. Why don’t we call it Whiteburn Rovers or is that too racist too. It is the stupidest thing I have heard in football for years.

  14. Look at the twitter feed ffs, it’s someone on the wind up! Some folk will believe anything….

  15. i am not a blackburn fan and still believe this is just plain stupid this is what is wrong with this country what are they going to do next seriously if it was a racist term then why have they not already changed it they should be able to have whatever name they want as long as its not aimed at anyone which its not what are they going to do next change names of places including blackburn

  16. bunch of muppets should we also ban the MOBO awards or how about the fedaration of black police officers or Blackpool tower etc

  17. I think its silly the amount of things your classing as racist ‘blackburn rovers football club’ isn’t rtacist its a team named after a town, it is stupid anything with black in is racist, I don’t get how it can be racist because nobdy is actually black there usually brown so I don’t see the problem

  18. The term “Blackburn” derives from “Blache borne” , because of the “burn” or stream running through it (river blakewater).

  19. how can they campaign against the use of the word ‘black’ but support FGM .. backwards bunch!
