Hardly a week goes by without ex-football and now writer Stan Collymore manages to criticise somebody without knowing what he is talking about.
This week he decided to take a dig at Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson for his recent interview in which he back Luis Suarez and said Evra never wanted to shake his hand.
Collymore claims that he is 'angry and frustrated' at what Johnson says in the interview calling the England star 'bang out of order', reading this you must be thinking that Glen Johnson had done something horrific.
It's quite the opposite, he spoke sense, which has what has been needed in this whole Suarez-Evra saga. 'I can't understand how people don't get that, in his culture the word 'negro' or 'negrito' is genuinely normal' is what Johnson said, but Collymore finds this offensive.
The former controversial Liverpool player goes on to say 'it is not OK to continue to live by the rules of your own culture' and calls Johnson 'detached from reality.
In effect what Collymore is saying is that only one culture is allowed in Britain and no other culture is accepted, yet later on in his rant he says Suarez should 'start interacting with multicultural Britain' therefore contradicting himself as he says many cultures should be accepted in Britain.
The next piece of writing is even more unbelievable, 'If I go to Saudi Arabia and walk around the streets with a can of Budweiser or let my girlfriend drive us around, I'm going to get into big trouble' comparing the English government to that of Saudi Arabia.
Collymore is suggesting that because in Saudi Arabia only their culture is accepted and they have zero tolerance of any other culture that's what Britain should be like, despite earlier claims that Britain was 'multicultural'.
This is coming from the man who calls Glen Johnson 'naive' and having the 'little England mentality', yet he does not even understand 'multicultural' which Prime-minister David Cameron was slaughtered for saying 'multiculturalism has failed' when Collymore's understanding clearly proves he was right.
He takes Johnson's own word out of context which as a former player he should know is wrong to do, as he claims that Johnson is saying 'We can go abroad and do what we like' which is not what he is saying. In fact he is saying that we should embrace every culture in the world and not force them to forget what they know.
It's sad that a person who fights so much against racism in this country, is actually so naive about the current situation and is using his power in the media to get across the wrong message to the people of Britain.
