Wonder why they let backward thinking people in the EU

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

Why does soccer in Europe and the UK seem to attract so many racists? We saw it in the Euros with some English people abusing their Black players after the penalty loss in the final, the attacks on Italians in the stadium, and now this.

I hope Hungary is banned from all international competition.

Despicable. Kick Racism Out!

Wonder why they let backward thinking people in the EU

And here it comes the non sense comment of the day.

The European Union is made by 27 sovereign countries and can total about half billion people,so to generalize it is mean and ignorant,Europe is similiar in value but also each country has it’s profound differences.

Also most of you forgot how English supporter badly behaved at the Euro cup,drunk and violent.

In the finaly vs.Italy after lose they waited for the Italian supporter in the subway and assaulted them.

Besides,any form of racism is not tolerable and I’m sure it will be dealt with.

It didn't really happen, not like the media says it did. The media told us that the English fans abused their black players, but in the end there were just 34 racist messages on social media from inside the UK (as deplorable as that is), and all the rest came from outside the UK. But that doesn't fit the media's agenda.

FIFI need to give a firm warning and a substantial fine and the threat of being thrown out of the competition if the racism continues.

The IP addresses of the 34 British based people who posted racist posts have been given over to the authorities. No one knows if they were real football fans.

Of course, not all futbol/soccer fans are racist, but a lot of racists enjoy futbol/soccer like NASCAR!

As an Urawa Reds fan, you’ll know that racism in football isn’t limited to Europe. Also, as an Aussie, you’ll know that racism in sport isn’t limited to football.

Racism is stupid.

Those who can be identified from photos and videos should be banned from international matches.

Hungry identify the offenders or FIFA bans all Hungarian fans from matches.

Hungary prime minister, Viktor Orbán is racist, homophobic and Islamophobic.

they took the knee as a gesture against racism.

Maybe that's the reason. Woke behavior is not appreciated everywhere.

Not Spiked Online please, they're the former the Living Marxism people turned ultra-libertarians and funded by dangerous far right American crackpots like Charles Koch.

Hungary prime minister, Viktor Orbán is racist, homophobic and Islamophobic.

And those Hungarians who are also racist, homophobic and Islamophobic wear black tee shirts and go to the games.

Right-wing Hungarian yobs need no lessons from their despicable English confreres and we would have seen much worse had the Israelis been visiting.

The photo is full of Hungarian fans wearing black t-shirts

The black t-shirts these shaved head scum wear display the Hungarian "Arrow Cross", the symbol of Hungarian Nazis.

Players like Sterling should not have to endure monkey-chants from these white supremacists.

Ban Hungary from all international soccer.

Hungary 0 - 4 England.

The photo does beg the question, what comes first, hair loss or ignorance ?

This is one aspect where America is so far ahead of Europe, the racist scumbags no longer have places in society, they are all herded or exiled to facebook and 4chan

Not Spiked Online please...

Okay, here's the BBC instead...... of 207 criminally racist messages posted online after the Euros, "123 were posted by people overseas, while 34 came from the UK".

Or is the BBC not good enough for you either?

There are black players on most of the European teams. The fans like to yell “racist” comments at the British team because they know the British authorities will emotionally react rather than just ignore it.

I think the walls have closed in on your knowledge here. This is an English team, not a British team.

Also, you’ll find racist abuse is thrown at players of pretty much all countries.

Furthermore, the British authorities can do very little, if anything here. This is a matter for FIFA.

Your post is one of those rare posts which has absolutely no redeeming features.

Not since a poster claimed to have read half the books on WW2 have I come across something like this.

European soccer's governing body UEFA in July ordered Hungary to play their next three games behind closed doors, with one match suspended for two years, after finding their supporters guilty of discriminatory behavior during Euro 2020.

These racist fans had already got their team penalized before - and that's why they deserved to be knelt

The English players had the best revenge on the racist fans, lol

They knelt in front of them, they mocked them with their own thrown plastic cups, then kicked their team's ass 4-0
