Racism in Football
Football grounds have provided one of the largest public arenas in which racism can be openly expressed.

There have been numerous incidents of racism but what has been done to combat this issue?
1970's and 1980's
Racist chanting took the form of members of the crowd making monkey noises at black players on the pitch, which still happens today.

“Racism makes me feel alone, I’ve changed my mind and if it's going to happen one more time, I’ll leave the pitch.”
Dani Alves
"Someone in the crowd just threw a banana at Dani Alves. Picked it up, peeled it, ate it, and proceeded to take the corner. Top response"
- Gary Lineker
"With my mate Phil Coutinho #SayNoToRacism #WeAreAllMonkeys"
- Luis Suárez
"Racism has no place in football or society. Join me in rejecting discrimination #WeAreAllMonkeys #NoToRacism"
- Martin Schulz
Supporters' Perception's
A survey of 2,500 football fans suggests the vast majority believe racism has never left the British game.

The survey also suggests fans want anti-racism campaign Kick It Out to do more, with 79% claiming the campaign had only been "partially effective".

Current Developments
Cases of Racism
Institutional racism can be defined as “the collective failure of an organisation to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture, or ethnic origin” (Cole 2009, p.91)
Individual Racism can be defined as “individuals acting upon their belief in their own racial superiority and the inferiority of other races” (Alvarez 2009. p. 401)
Overt racism “operates on a personal level, whereby one individual hates another individual because of his or her racial origins.” (Wilson 2005, p1)
“Covert racism may be viewed as racism which is hidden; secret; private; covered; disguised; insidious; or concealed” (Coates, 2011, p.1)
Symbolic interactionism is a sociological approach to society - it sees society as the product of people's interactions with others as opposed to the structural-functional and social-conflict approach.
