George Weah on Racism

The brilliant George Weah (who almost became PM in Liberia) is standing up against racism in the game, and asks FIFA to intensify the fight against ignorance.
Weah said that people should not forget that only a small minority in European football is racist. “I believe it’s perpetrated by a minority of people who are ignorant, they see people of different colour on the pitch and feel offended,” he told the BBC in Accra.
Weah joins Zoro, Issa Hayatou, and Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o as they struggle to find a way to get Europe to clean up its act.
At Soccer Blog we believe it can be done. Today’s English game is a testament to what can happen when racism is fought on all fronts. Let’s go FIFA, it’s time to step up!
