Racism is a big issue in Europe, but people don't talk about it a lot. But on the Internet people dare to speak freely. The experienceproject.com has a forum topic called ‘I experienced Racism’. Anonymous blogger ‘Nightcrawler' tells that old ladies get scared when he passes by : ‘I am 18 years old, parents from Eritrea but I live in Holland. I often see old ladies grab their bag and white racist people probably don’t think we notice, but I can smell racism from a mile away. But its something we need to learn to live with. I had a conversation once with a teacher of mine, she actually thought racism was dead nowadays. I just told her to walk in my shoes for a day and she would find out that its not.’
Monkey sounds produced by supporters from his own club made Lyon defender John Mensa from Ghana long for home. He tells Equipe: "It ruined my career. After hearing their voices I only wanted to do one thing, to go home to my own country, Ghana, and to forget all this." John Nkebi doesn’t want to leave Köln, but the beating was a depressing experience for him: "It makes me sad that there are people who are just waiting for a black guy to do something, so that they can go out and hit him."
