not so sure it's a "debate". sheesh was posting a news article which is worth discussing to a point but, to be fair, that point doesn't go much further than "yes, it's disgusting and, sadly, doesn't seem much of a surprise".
Just thought it was worth sharing. This thread doesn't have to be specific to that article as, sadly, racism is still alive and well in the game.

In my experience and opinion I see no racism in the game , both in attending and game and playing the sport I am convinced that any incidents of racism are minute ( wrong as that is ) but only on par with any other anti - social behaviour.
And I have never heard anyone shout across the road the ' N' word ever although I am in no doubt it has been done.This forum almost seems obsessed with the subject, which seems strange.

Bullying in all forms is a much more important agenda in 2018 from the schoolyard to the workplace in social media indeed even in the home in life I see that almost on a weekly basis .

So, pint... Have you not seen those incidents of people throwing bananas or making monkey noises at black players in other leagues. That's "the game" that you're not seeing any racism in. Not really sure why you feel that there must be a level ("minute") where it's evidently so negligible as to not have any effect on those that "minute" amount of racism is directed at.

If you wish to start a thread on bullying, please use the off topic forums or, if it's related to bullying in football, please start one here. This isn't a thread about "bullying" and you'll find that the clue is in the topic title.

I did witness a United fan being racist once. It was at Fulham v United (where Ronaldo scored in the last minute). Some moron had a pop at Papa Bouba Diop using the 'N' word but the stewards did nothing.

I assume that's the sort of "minute" incident that pint suggests racism in the game is limited to... Tell us, sheesh, how did it affect you, as a non-white United fan? It's obviously stuck in your memory and it doesn't sound like you consider it "minute" or trivial.

I bet it's rife for the whole tournament and not just in games featuring the Russian team. I bet, also, that fuck all action is taken despite there being numerous complaints.

let's just get this clear, Davel. You're condoning racism so long as it gains "an edge" aren't you?
