Scottish Premier League footballer Gregory Tade has allegedly been racially abused in a message posted on Twitter.

The 25-year-old Frenchman is a striker with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Details of the tweet's contents have been sent to the Football Coordination Unit for Scotland (Focus).

Strathclyde Police, the force Focus operates from, and Northern Constabulary have been informed of the allegations.

The apparent tweet:

YOU'RE BLACK. AND SHITE AT FOOTBALL. GIVE UP LIFE!

Ironic given that the apparent tweeter should clearly take his own advise (minus the black bit obviously).

Can someone check if the perpetrator's cultural background allows the use of "black"?

Is there not an implication that he should give up life because he is shite at football and that he is black. Actually no it is pretty straight forward. I would say that is quite derogatory to be honest.

If I was to say to caledonia "You're thick and shite at spelling. give up life" then I would be having a go at thick people wouldn't I?

It's clearly racial.  Telling somebody to give up life because they are black.  Jesus wept.

Jesus was black and gave up his life.

If Jesus actually existed he would've been a Caucasian. The bible says he had skin the colour of a copper penny so he would've been an arab jew.

He didn't give his life. His dad sacrificed his life.

The Black woman in the dungarees is obviously a feckin' dyke, but the one in the grey skirt would get it. I wouldn't mind shoving my fist up her puppet.
