Contrary to popular belief, Europeans seem far more racist than Americans.
A Tottenham supporter was arrested on Sunday after throwing a banana skin onto the pitch during the Spurs' feisty north London derby with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

According to a report from The Telegraph, the fan launched the banana peel toward Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the striker netted a 10th-minute penalty.

"Behavior such as this is completely unacceptable and the supporter in question will be issued with a ban," a Spurs spokesman said in a statement.
Imagine if someone threw a banana peel on the court of an NBA game at LeBron, for example. The national news would explode over it.

yeah when people try to hold them up as enlightening its ridiculous.

a few years ago I sat by a Brit on a plane, he said "why do your police kill so many black people" then when I said I liked London, he scoffed and said, its overrun by foreigners now and hardly "british"

:doofus:

Same type of deal with my Canadian coworkers. Appalled at our racism then will totally destroy their aboriginals. Widely accepted to talk about them as if they are the scourge of the earth.

I'd take the Juggs approach and point out how many blacks in America are killed by whites compared to how many are killed by other blacks.

It is a little different when the authorities - the sworn agents of justice - kill helpless prisoners with no consequences.

Well they did react too. I don't know if they are worse. That probably varies from region to region. Like here or Iran the more rural you are the more prejudiced you are likely to be. But yeah, overall I wouldn't say they were better.
