Football player, the best of his generation undoubtedly, if not the best player of all time (cetainly the best I've seen and i've been watching football since 1974).

Famous for the so-called 'hand of god' goal against England in the 1986 world cup, demonised ever since, not as if English players ever cheat now is it?

Pathetically, was voted Scotland's 'sportsman of the century' in 1999 but this is just typical of the small minded attitude and low-level racism of most jocks.
Maradona was a great football player. What he was and is as a man is irrelevant.

a dreary town in the even drearier east midlands whose only claim to fame is the non-existent 'outlaw' Robin Hood who was a victorian work of fiction came from nearby. Every where you look there its robin hood this robin hood that and yes, you've guessed it robin hood the other.
everyone in nottingham is proud of a non-existant person because they bizarely think tourists will want to go there.

Driving While Black.

The metropolitan police and other UK police forces will often try to arrest any black motorists, especially those driving expensive cars, for no good reason other than the colour of the driver's skin.

A motorist in Birmingam (England, not Alabama, but the attitudes are the same) was stopped for DWB ***35*** times in a year, and not once did he have as much as a faulty brake light. He did not break any speed limits and his car was in perfect order.

This is yet another example of the police being institutionally racist but nothing is ever done about it.
'Look sarge there's a nigger driving a sports car, I bet he stole it, thieving bastards the lot of them. And the bastard has got a white women in the passenger seat it ain't right is it'

'You know what to do son, pull him over for 'driving erratically' and plant some drugs in the glove compartment'

What happens to black people after they've been arrested by the metropolitan police but even when an inquest records a verdict of unlawful killing, no policemen are ever convicted (because criminal charges are assesed based on evidence gathered by, you've guessed it...the police!)
'sarge, I just beat a nigger to death in the cells. But he had it coming, he was giving me lip. Or he would have done if I hadn't hit him first, you know what they are like'

'don't worry son, I'll have to gather the evidence myself and of course i won't find any *wink wink* and of course there were no witnesses in this busy police station were there'

A drake-brockman is an absurd belief that goes against all rational evidence, because it reinforces one's bigoted view of a race or particular group of people. Usually, a drake-brockman is the result of deliberately misrepresenting a source to make them fit your world view.
Cherry the elderly papergirl believed the drake-brockman that asylum seekers are given £300 a week and a pat on the head by the Government, after someone told her this in a post office queue one day.

the de sica believed the drake-brockman that 'many asylum seekers are guilty of serious crimes in their own country' despite the fact that when she was repeatedly asked for evidence she failed to provide any.

Favoured pastime of the metropolitan police and other UK police forces. Victims are usually black, and other so-called 'public servants' who witness these terrible crimes will invariably keep quiet about them.

The day before this definition was posted, it emerged a london police officer who deliberately drove his car at an innocent member of the public inflicting serious injuries, was only fined 17 days pay, kept his job, and faced no criminal charges. This is typical.
'is anyone watching sarge? I fancy bit of police brutality with this passing nigger'
