I love how "British Chelsea hooligans" magically becomes "Whites".

Turns out the black guy is French and didn't understand everything they were saying. That's why he probably brushed it off at first and kept trying to get past. But then it says he realized it had something to do with his skin color. Later on.. I guess... when he probably turned around and finally quit trying

The man recounted: "I wanted to get into the carriage but a group of English fans were blocking me and pushing me off.

They were saying to me things in English but I didn't really understand the meaning of their words.


"I realised they were targeting me because of the colour of my skin. You know I live with racism, I wasn't totally surprised at what happened even if this was the first time it'd happened in the metro.

Like I said... no big deal... a handful of 20 something year old racist millennial guys with no girlfriends and small penises (probably hanging together) having a temper tantrum over it and taking it out on the black guy... thats not breaking world news. Nothing to see here...

On Thursday, the Premier League club announced that it had identified three of the fans who were involved and suspended them from Stamford Bridge while it continues its ongoing investigation. The three unnamed supporters could be banned for life if Chelsea finds enough evidence.

What happened on Tuesday was not some state-sponsored denial of basic human rights as blighted long periods of the 20th century in certain countries. This was personal, this was a handful of Chelsea fans, laughing bigots, preventing a black man from boarding the Métro.
 
Next....



 
 
*Can clearly see in the video only 3 guy's mouths singing the chant on the train who are all standing together. And just 1 guy doing the pushing. Figured at the most under just 10 (4 or 5), if you count a couple who might have been standing behind them off camera. Didn't sound like a HUGE crowd singing . Just 5 or 7 people at the most maybe 10. And no one on the platform singing. They're going after them now after charges were pressed because the amount is such a small group that they can. Doubt when this boring story is over you'll end up finding out it was more people than that. 5 or 10 racist guys, hanging together, PMSing over some guy they don't know because his skin looks different than theirs is not breaking news.

Now that they're getting in huge trouble for it, after being caught on tape, losing their jobs, getting outcasted by the media and being threatened with jail time the song is not at the TOP 20 hits anymore. They're completely denying all of it and are trying to change the lyrics to the song to try and save their a55. So that'll bring the head count down even more by the end of it. (shrug) Just another cheesey clip that'll be added later on to one of You Tube world's dumbest criminals

I've always felt that the frustration factor is what makes soccer fans so violent. You almost never hear of violence among North American football or ice hockey fans, and those sports feature much more sanctioned brutality than soccer does.

I'm glad those bullies are going to face the consequences of their hatred. Any situation such as this one has the potential to climax into injury of death and should be treated more seriously when it comes to for sentencing. If this was treated like a serious crime
maybe perps would use a little more of their brains.
