One of the most iconic pictures of the most disgusting aspect of European football.
The legend John Barnes kicking a banana off the pitch that had just been thrown at him.
Although this picture is from the 1980s, with the John Terry verdict today it shows the racism is still there in professional sport. It’s even worse in mainland Europe.
Last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites.
4 Israeli Defense Force soldiers “detaining” a Palestinian girl, while posing for a picture with their rifles pointed at her head. Fucking outrage.
Io in questa foto vedo una ragazzina in ginocchio bendata e quattro soldati nazisti che le puntano armi alla testa. E voi?
(ecco, giusto per far riflettere certi bempensanti)
As Marx would put it, such a rising is a festival of the masses. The incidental harm is far outweighed by the fact that it raises the level of the struggle to a higher plateau. The wounds inflicted by the gendarmerie will be healed. The lessons will be learned: that a spontaneous uprising has to be supported with whatever means are available; that a great divide exists between the leaders and the masses.
