Video: ‘green man’ reply to racist Chelsea ‘fans’ who pushed black man off train

By Tash Shifrin | 25 February 2015

The appalling footage of Chelsea “fans” pushing a black man off a Paris metro train, while chanting: “We’re racist, we’re racist, we’re racist, and that’s the way we like it,” has rightly provoked widespread condemnation. It has also prompted this nice anti-racist – and non-partisan – reply video.

It’s one for all of us who love football and hate racism.

We will have a longer post about football, racism and anti-racism soon – a series of recent events means there’s a lot to discuss. And while the video above is a fun response, there are serious points to be made too.

For readers who may not have seen the footage of the original incident in Paris, you can see the footage and read an early news report of it here.
