LEARNING HUB: Radlett Action for Racial Equality to host racism in football discussion 

 Published on: 16th February 2021   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

Radlett Action for Racial Equality (RARE) will host an open discussion on racism in football as part of their third Learning Hub.

On Monday, March 8, RARE will once again welcome anyone from Radlett or the wider Hertfordshire area to learn about, discuss and give their unique perspective on racism in football.

The talk comes after increasing reports of players being racially abused on social media or being criticised for kneeling in support of racial equality.

RARE co-founder James Crown, who is running the event, said: “Football provides a prime example that racism remains a current problem we face across the nation.

“It is important we continue to be aware of our surroundings so we can speak out against racism and fight this together.”

The group have highlighted local issues that have happened in recent years to do with the topic, including when Boreham Wood FC goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore bravely spoke out about his experience of racism during his career.

There were also five Watford FC supporters banned during the 2019/20 season for using racist or abusive language.
