Man Utd fans proved once again why they are the most pathetic fans in england.

Coming from an ACMilan fan, where racism is seen as normal and a part of everyday life. In Italy, they appointed a racist as head of the federation; in England police pursue a few idiots - speaks volumes I would say.

Racism in italy is way mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o oore less than any other country on the fuckin planet...


BUT IDIOTS live everywhere... expecially in england.

MajorLazer3059d ago

Way to judge an entire fanbase based on just a few fans. The people who were being racist are scum, whether they are Man Utd fans or not

KingPin3059d ago


he may be a genuine itallian, that wont stop people being racists towards him.

werent inter milan fined for racism towards him?
erm before that wasnt there racist chanting against him when they were playing roma?
didnt prince-boateng walk off against Pro Patria for racism aimed at him.

just three examples off the top of my head. i could google for more but id leave that for you.

please pop that bubble you living in and welcome to the real world. im not saying all italians are racist, but it happens there as much as it does around the world.

It's Twitter, you gotta let it go. Although, these trolls are really going to ruin the internet for everybody by allowing us to go into a heavy cyber police state.

asmith23063058d ago

Yup. It should be up to Twitter to sort them out, not the police. Just ban their email accounts from using twitter. It would be a right pain in the ass for these idiots to have to create a new email address to sign back up to twitter again. They will give up eventually or shut up.

Genuine italians are not black.

Genuine English are not black/brown.

It is not their people's place of origin.

xX_Altair_Xx3058d ago (Edited 3058d ago )

Your word choice isnt correct - I think you mean 'native' Italians and English are not black. But then again native Americans arent black or white, European or African, but they've effectively made it their home so that the term 'American' refers to them. Likewise black people in Europe have just as much a right to call themselves 'genuine' Italians, French, English etc without the racist abuse. Same goes for white people in Africa, especially South Africa where they proudly refer to themselves as African.

It's a global world - trying to group people into colours and nationalities is a thing of the past.

Sashamaz3058d ago

Did white folk evolve/get created in Europe?

windblowsagain3058d ago


Which begs the question. IF and I mean IF all people originated from Africa. Then why do people from all these places hate eachother and why do races not mix well.

That is interesting. 1.8million years old.


Racism was created by Governments to get people to hate and fight against eachother imo. At the end of the day. We all breathe/eat/bleed/live/die. The hate comes from mindsets over many years.

Look at it this way. People moan about a Minority placed in America/uk etc.

But place a White Minority in a heavily black/asian area and you will get the same problems.

People are entitled to their opinion, this football Ape is raking in millions and all at the expense of a local name calling. Big fucking deal, if he's crying over it, he should man up or leave the sport. This isn't highschool, this is the real world and he has to live in it as a black man.

xX_Altair_Xx3058d ago

Not sure why you're attacking him - he didnt report it. Twtr automatically report racist etc tweets to the police and delete the tweet and (potentially) the account. Suppose it says more about you and your white-supremacist views.

silvacrest3058d ago

showing your true colors again

you are a racist, own it like a man

silvacrest3058d ago

lol, if that's all you got prepare to lose all those bubbles racist

Stringerbell3057d ago (Edited 3057d ago )

Your point is moot since he didn't report anything. Racists btw are cowards, there is no room for it in modern day society let alone the game of football.
