This decade has probably seen us with more non white players than any other decade (and long may our diversity continue). 

Can anyone name all our players of black (or other non white) origin throughout the ages? 

I feel this should be celebrated

Holding mid vote out and I see Jamie Lindsay isn’t even an option. He was my first choice tbh - the ultimate defensive minded, box-to-box midfielder.

Think most Scottish clubs can say the same, definitely a step in the right direction

You feel it should be celebrated? What, that people are becoming less racist? :lol:

I've not once mentioned racism. 

Diversity, I think, should be celebrated and encouraged to reflect our changing society. It's just my opinion mind ye. 

Ultimately I was looking for someone less lazy than me to compile a list of our players that are non white? If you're offended by that then sorry.

Just about every trialist we had playing for us in the summer.

I can't be certain this list is conclusive.

Brian McPhee and Gordon Lennon too.

ETA We had a player in the 90's called Moses Apiliga but he only ever played in friendlies and probably reserve matches but he was a signed player so he can be added to the list.

Good of me to remember absolute nobodies like Arlan Mptata but I forget these two legends. For shame.

Moses Apilliga fixed the flood lights one day at Boghead I'm sure. 

Did we have any other black players before him?

That's the guy. Played about 2 games and disappeared IIRC. Have either of him or Obidele been found yet?

Chris Turner absolutely robbed there IMHO.

I'm Carsy's biggest fangirl, but that is crazy. Turner was the best part-time player in the country for that season where he was actually fit.

My team posted a few pages back would wipe the floor with this mob so far imo.

This team of the year is going to be absolutely honking by the time it's finished.

I'm predicting a Gary Fleming Prunty striker partnership to end it too.

Can't believe we didn't have the option of Jamie Lindsay as a CDM either. The fact that Jon Routledge won his group says it all. (Not a terrible player but should never be in the top 4).
