Racism at Euro 2012

Much has been said about the documentaries and articles surrounding the degree of organised racism in Ukraine and Poland.

Quite frankly, I find it all a little ironic to hear people piping up about the subject yet they were fierce in their defence of the racist footballer Luis Suarez?

I’ve heard similar mutterings from fans about John Terry, will he be rejected if convicted? Discarded by the fans who consider him some kind of Mesiah? I doubt it.

Lest we forget Sepp Blatter and his silly comments about handshakes? If the head of FIFA believes racism can be solved that way, it’s no wonder FIFA picked the Ukraine as the venue for Euro 2012 in the first place?

It seems to be the latest trend to get on the bandwagon and have a dig about Neo Nazi groups in the Third-World Section of Europe; personally, I think we need to have a bloody good long look at the institutionalised racism in the UK and Spain?

I hope the tournament goes smoothly to prove the bloodletting media wrong!
