Football and racism: European when we win
“Germans when we win, immigrants when we lose.” After top football player Mesut Özil resigned from the German national team, a huge debate on racism was sparked under the hashtag #MeTwo. Are we finally coming to terms with the fact that xenophobia is present everywhere, in Germany and in Europe alike?
Our series WHO CARES? is all about (g)local debates. What's going on in Poland that no Spanish person has ever heard about? What's blowing up the internet in the Netherlands and not in France? Well, as a European magazine, we care. WHO CARES? brings you news you haven't seen on your newsfeed yet.
