i disagree with chris about racism being a problem at the same level in football as in the wider society. it's not. football crowds definitely don't reflect the general society accurately. and they are infiltrated by very idiotic groups. and they don't target just black people. which is the point some people are missing.

p.s. english people are cheering for real madrid in the place where and as i'm typing this
His intentions don't really matter. If he really did intend to paint Europe in a bad light, I don't think he really got very far with it. If this story leads some Americans to think Europe is more racist than they previously thought...well, that's either good or bad depending on what they previously though! Also, what they think (whether right or wrong) doesn't matter half as much as what is actually going on.

For that reason, I'm still thankful that this thread was made. It was a piece of news I might not have seen otherwise and it's always good to be informed

Although, now that I look at the thread title again, I'm finally noticing how stupid it is
