Racism is still very real all over Europe.

An American soccer player has lodged a formal complaint in the player on an opposing team in what could be a landmark, precedence-setting case that could set a new standard for the behavior of people all over Europe in regards to racism.

American Oguchi "Gooch" Onyewu has stood up for the legions of African-descended players all over Europe.

Yet another reason to be proud to be an American.

Quote:
Onyewu "wants to contribute to eradicate such behavior in football," his court papers said.

"A great many lesser-known African players don't have the stature to publicly denounce the insult they suffer on the pitch," Dupont said. "With Oguchi, it is different."

Unlike the racist chants that cascade from the stands in some European nations, the racist taunts on the field are often whispered in a player's ear when referees are out of earshot.

Racism from the stands has been going for years, with fans making money chants and throwing bananas at black players. Soccer officials have long condemned it and fined clubs.

Throwing bananas? Racist chants? I am appalled! Sad times and no place for that for sure--but they PALE in comparison to what is happening in Africa right now--not just words--but ACTIONS--amazing how the media is IGNORING genocide against whites........

I cannot believe that S Africa was given the rights to host the World Cup next year--THAT is a travesty as well given the background of this crumbling country.

Yeah, you guys should be really proud of what you've done in the USA. Racism free for over ten years now, congratulations!

Anyway, the guy he's making the allegations against is named Jelle Van Damme.

Hopefully they'll find some witnesses willing to back up Onyewu's statements if this is true. Very hard to prove this otherwise as players can't be miked up in soccer so it's one guys word against another.

What a strange reaction you had to that.

Anyway, yes appalling, but racism is hardly dead here in the states. Look no further than the comments re: the sotomayor nomination

You would be crazy and ignorant to believe that racism doesn't exist in the states. As an African American, there are so many examples that go on in our daily lives that indicate racism still exists (and racial profiles because of your skin color, racial slurs between crowds, being thought of as stupid and uneducated, women clutching their purse when walking by, still being served last in bars, etc.). Only the most extreme cases of racisms hits the news such as one of the most recent the Jena 6 also.
Quote:
The Jena Six are a group of six black teenagers charged with the beating of Justin Barker, a white student at Jena High School in Jena, Louisiana, United States, on December 4, 2006. Barker was injured, but was released from the emergency room the same day.[1] He has since brought suit against members of the Jena Six, their parents, the school district, and others allegedly involved.[2]
A number of events took place in and around Jena in the months preceding the Barker assault, which have been linked to an alleged escalation of racial tensions. These events included the hanging of nooses from a tree in the high school courtyard, two violent confrontations between white and black youths, and the destruction by fire of the main building of Jena High School. The incidents were often linked in the extensive news coverage regarding the Jena Six.[3]
Six individuals (Robert Bailey, then aged 17; Mychal Bell, then 16; Carwin Jones, then 18; Bryant Purvis, then 17; Jesse Ray Beard, then 14; and Theo Shaw, then 17) were arrested in the assault on Barker. One, Mychal Bell, was initially convicted as an adult of aggravated battery and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery. His convictions were overturned on the ground that he should have been tried as a juvenile. Prior to a retrial in juvenile court, he pled guilty to a reduced charge of simple battery. The other five defendants still await trial.

I agree--her making the relation between her ethnicity and gender and an inherent ability to make better judicial judgements than a white male was truly disgusting and appalling.......and some people actually defended those statements as benign......

I thought there was only racism here in America. You mean to tell me it happens in grand old Europe as well?

Racism isnt going away people.

We all perpetuate it, regardless of our race.

Black people, hispanics, asians, whites, arabs. If racism were dead, then people wouldnt bother living in ethnic communities. It would be just fine to truly be mixed around.

However, I think the point of this thread, or what Im taking for it, is those uppity ****ing euro trash talk down about the US and how bad it is here but those dip****s are so decadent, and so downright snobbish that you wouldnt catch me dead anywhere in Europe.

Id be willing to just wipe the slate clean and get rid of the whole ****ing continenet. Piece of **** euro trash. Then they come over here and have the god damn audacity to talk **** about our country? Get the **** out fags.

Yet you only seem to take racism perpetuated by Caucasians seriously--your double standard is blindingly clear and not appreciated and it is racist in spirit...

It would be quicker to name countries where racism doesn't exist.

Good luck with that!
