After watching the news story from ESPN called “Beautiful Game Turned Ugly: Racism in Europe’s Soccer Arenas”, I am truly shocked by some of the featured information. To an extent, I am aware that racism is still present in our world, but hearing about the racism in soccer was new to me. There are always going to conflicting opinions in our society, especially with regards to race because many believe they are the superiority in a racial or ethnic group. Because of this idealogy that one race is better than another, races often discriminate against one another. In European soccer, both discrimination and prejudice are present.
Yet, a closer examination shows that racism has not been eliminated from the sports world any more than it has from American life in general. While a majority of sociologists would base racism in sports as being primarily an American issue that is just not the case. Racial undertones affect sports on a global basis; this includes the most recognized international sport, soccer, as well.

In the fans eyes, these players tarnish the game. They are branded with the scarlet letter of D for being dumb, doping or druggie. There are many reasons why athletes use performance-enhancing drugs.

Technology is becoming our main lifestyle and people are caring less and less about the world around them. Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451, greatly foreshadows what our world might soon turn into which makes this novel very believable and scary. To avoid this, we must continue our research and study of new ideas and beliefs and share them with the world. People need to care more about their society and the fundamentals of living properly.

It could be through the news or personal experience; racism is all around us. It appears as if racism has been accepted as being part of life. It does not seem like people are ready to put in the effort that will alter the situation all at once.

He explained with the point with the idea that sport is about creating extraordinary moments and drug taking would simply be cheating.
