Zenit St. Petersburg fans demanding all-white, non-gay team - ESPN FC

I totally buy that Russia was awarded the cup in a democratic, bribe free manner

Racism in the football supporter world is not uncommon in Eastern Europe...or in Western Europe for that matter.

In terms of FIFA corruption I am more concerned with Qatar.

Yep, there have been regular stories in the Flemish newspapers about how hard it is for Axel Witsel to fit in. Lots of players are jealous with his salary. Fortunately for him, there's another (white) Belgian player there, Nicolas Lombaerts, who is well respected by teammates and fans and who "protects" Witsel a bit. Hulk has it even harder apparently and would love to leave the team coming January. Nice club lol.

I said WOW too when I read this but for the majority of (especially older) whites down in the American South, the kind who wave Confederate flags are just as bad.

A lot of them like college football, but I've never heard of anything like an official Alabama Crimson Tide fan club demanding to get rid of all the black players. No comparison.

No comparison? How about a majority of white southerners who are still trying to come up with ways to disqualify our 1/2 black president? Politics aside, you can talk to most white southerners for 5 minutes and hear blatant racism and intolerance.

How is a "majority" of white southerners trying to "disqualify" Obama. Your comment is daft and nothing but hyperbole. NE, eh? Those white folks in Beantown sure were happy when black kids were bussed to white schools in the 70s. Racism is everywhere.
