    Military Cross for 1st Black Footballer

    How do you know it's treating Tull differently from any other veteran? It specifies that it's very rare for someone who had served for as long as he did, at the level that he did, not to be honoured. He has been treated differently until now (I would say discriminated against, but I'm sure that would raise hackles), and the petition is seeking to rectify that, and have him treated equally.

    This is equality, and this is the example we should set - that he should not be shown preferential or deferential treatment because of his race, but should be judged by his actions, and by the same criteria as anyone else.
