BANANAS flying out of the stands, monkey chants being heard all over the place, unbelievable racial slurs being called out; it’s sad to tell you that these are what our African football brothers are experiencing in the European fields when playing for their professional teams. With blacks making up as much as 15 percent of the players in the top leagues, England has become the leader in the fight against racism in the football arena. Almost every country in Europe is guily of this sin, with racial signs and chants – even violence – that target blacks, Jews, and Muslims. It’s understandable to support one’s team against your opponent, but there ought to be limits on the actions taken against each other. Some demonstrators guilty of these stupidities confirm that they only do it to unsettle the opposing team, but there are evidence that this is not just team feud; this is full blown hate and racism. How else can you explain the fact that some of these racism acts have been even conducted by supporters against their own players? Italians fans have been racially taunting their own team’s players. When the French team on the World Cup, a politician openly branded the team “unworthy” due to the facts that they had more black payers than whites in the team.
