    Its a cultural issue. Many Italians are racist. They dont see a problem with it.

    feck me. So if he didn’t want to be racially abused, he should’ve stayed at home.

    They’re not even trying to hide it anymore :lol:

    Fecking hell. I don't even know what to say about this.

    We talk about there being issues big enough to transcend football rivalries, like the Munich air disaster or Hillsborough. Evidently in Italian football defending racism is important enough to transcend rivalries.

    I have met three different people (Nigerian and two Ghanaians) whose family left Italy with racism playing a major part in their decision. These are well educated guys in high paying jobs.

    I don't see why black players would bother playing in league to be honest. The fact that the governing bodies do very little to stamp it out speaks volumes about how it's regarded by the nation from its very infrastructures. It sounds like racism in Italy stems from a "cultured" influence and when you integrate that level of stupidity / ignorance with sport you get what's in the headlines.

    To answer what the punishment should be any decent human with half a brain to function, would impose that a lifetime ban should be the minimal punishment.

    But this thread's been telling us that racism isn't really racism in Italy, in Italy racism = goading!

    For some it might be their home, some may be unaware of the issues, others may be unwilling be intimidated by racism or welcome the opportunity to raise awareness. And of course money/career advancement.

    It's strange how you can be racist when all of your white ultra friends are lowlife scum of the earth. Meanwhile you would think even in the eyes of them cnuts they would meet nice black people. And you still have a sense of superority. Of course they are stupid and insecure but even then. It baffles me.

    Uefa should just ban clubs or FA's who sit still and do nothing. But then again it's Uefa.
