Lol what real 1960s racism? 1960s racism in America was horrific, have you been to England for example? It's got racist areas but I doubt it compares to America in the 60s.for about 9-10 years now watched messi come up through the juniors, was purely a xavi hernandez fan and only really saw the ronaldinho spark which was a lot of influence by my friends. messi coming up through the youth/juniors it was only until around that time 2004-2006 did my out of college friends start watching as a fan. i grew up in the usa but i had a lot of international friends in my adolescent / hs / college years so that's really where I grew my interest as a fan.
Eastern Europe as a whole is quite racist, places like Spain/Italy/Portugal can be racist/ignorant. France has a humungous black population. It varies from country to country and in those countries it varies from area to area, London for example is not racist at all. Usually as usual its lack of exposure to black people where racism seems the most rampant.
'and yes, I'm a big time BARCA supporter
VISCA BARCA MES QUE UN CLUB'
Be honest how long you been a Barca fan for?...
I'm sure you want me to say I've been a fan since the 2010 world cup because spain as a power house really didn't have anyone else out there to play that style of ball. I've seen my fair share of europe, eastern europe, and i've been to england both manchester and london I know what you are saying in regards to 60s america. I grew up next to a welfare hotel in the upper west side of manhattan (80s) post Koch around Dinkins era, I'm quite well aware of poverty and segregation. Anyways, so there's as much honesty as you probably wanted to know to validate my post.
I'm not a 06 WC soccer follower who made Zidane memes on the internet.
