Racism at the World Cup

Forum Realisance says (Fr) of the World Cup: “What shocked the French is that June 27 at the end of the match against Spain, they were received with primitive ape-like screams by … Spanish spectators! And according to French and Italian papers, the same insulting screams were heard on Plaza Colon in Madrid. (…) It is time that monetary damages intervene and that Western governments stop hiding behind semblances of efforts that are meant to justify their failures.”
