Nottingham Forest striker Lyle Taylor's comments on Black Lives Matter sparks debate
Reds forward Lyle Taylor says he supports black lives matter as a message but not the organisation promoting it
It wasnít your typical post-match interview after Nottingham Forestís FA Cup win over Cardiff City on Saturday.
And comments made by Reds striker Lyle Taylor have generated a considerable amount of debate.
The 30-year-old, who scored the only goal at the City Ground, spoke about the Black Lives Matter group and his decision to no longer take a knee before games.
"My support for what it is that we're trying to achieve is absolute, but I do not support Black Live Matter as an institution or organisation," he told BBC Radio Nottingham after the game.
I would request anyone looks into Black Lives Matter to look into what that organisation does and what they stand for because it's scandalous that the world and the world's media has got behind Black Lives Matter.
"Not the message, of course black lives matter. Standing behind Black Lives Matter and all the institutions that have done that - the BBC, Sky, all of them saying Black Lives Matter, it's not a good idea because of what the organisation stands for.
"The message overall is 100 percent important, don't get me wrong on that. You see what is happening - I'm not going into my beliefs into what went on in the Capitol building (referencing the attack on America's congress) because I've done my fair amount of research into it.
"In terms of black lives actually mattering and black people being killed by police more frequently, that's not a good thing.
"Black lives do matter, but you'll never hear me say Black Lives Matter again in reference to that company"
