Is racism still a problem in your sport?

    In light of Sebb Blatter's recent comments that racism on a footbal (soccer) pitch can be resolved with a handshake and the condemnation of these remarks within the media. Do you consider your sport to be racist and Do you consider more can be done in future?

    Do you think racism can be resolved with a simple handshake? And has the media taken Blatter's comments too far?

      Sepp Blatter is a racist, sexist, corrupt criminal.  If the UK had won the rights to whatever tournament it was though - we would have no problems dealing with him.

      I honestly believe that ALL professional sport is corrupt.  That includes the bribery Olympics and so on.

      Was it always so?  Probably.

        Do you not see Blatter's behaviour as cultural based on age and upbringing? He's a 74 year old man!

        Has the media taken his latest comments too far?

    Racism is genetic; "That which is different is to be feared". As a society, we are headed in the right direction. Unless something comes along to screw everything up, we will continue to improve.
