What Is Going On

I wholeheartedly condemn what happened in France with the Chelsea fans. What I can’t understand though, is the wider angle of what those people did. They bullied and harassed a man going about his daily business, they treated him as less human than they; less entitled, less. That troubles me. It is reminiscent of the holocaust. Whilst on the surface it is about racism, that label is masking a much deeper, more worrying problem: the differentiation of classes of people and a resulting persecution. Replace ‘black’ with ‘Jewish’ or ‘Polish’ or anyone else that has been persecuted. How different is it now? #bemorehuman
