International racism in football

Post by Mikins » Sun Oct 27, 2013 12:44 pm

So after commenting on how well the English are doing in terms of combatting racism at the 150th anniversary there was an odd hijacking where they felt the need to bring up other countries and their lack of action and what they feel disciplinary panels should be doing (kicking teams out of the champions/Europa league deducting points etc.) Whilst not saying much about the people responsible for the abuse or taking actions again clubs whose fan charters have paragraphs complaining about having "black players forced on them" amongst other nonsense, if it isn't illegal in those countries do they really have a leg to stand on punishing teams in the strongest way or are they on a legal hiding to nothing that will only see major clubs with idiotic fans fighting FIFA in court every year because they don't feel responsible for policing the thoughts and deeds of their fans. - as some clubs have already said they just will not do.
Sorry about your damn luck!

Surely having "black players forced on them" is just the same as we've had multiculturalism forced on us? Any sort of national pride is greeted with screams of "racist". Out and out racism is wrong, but you can't say naff all nowadays.

It's about time FIFA/UEFA cracked down hard on Clubs & Countries where abuse of black players is the norm especially in Eastern Europe but also Spain, Italy, Turkey where black players are often given a rough ride wrongly.
Fines & strongly worded statements have little effect so expulsion from Uefa tournaments should be the punishment; in League matches points deductions should be implemented as long as it is proved conclusively who is guilty.
Oh & Qatar shouldn't have the 2022 WC especially given it's attitude towards gays (I am not gay or have particularly strong feelings but they shouldn't be discriminated against - nor should anyone else!)
