Extraordinary walk off highlights racism in European soccer
(Xavier Laine/Pool via AP)Players have taken a knee, unfurled slogans and demanded tougher action only to find European soccer remains infested with racism. Before the match restarted Wednesday, the players took a knee in unison as the Champions League anthem played, while some — including PSG star Neymar — raised a fist. Unintentional racism is still racism," Powar said. Meanwhile, the persistent racism infesting European soccer was on show again Wednesday in England, where a lower-league match was played with limited fans. The same thing can be said about a white man, but then it’s no longer a sign of racism.
