Euro racism: alive and well


Dodgy quality pic from Madrid last week that I meant to post sooner. I'm not even sure what these posters were for but they certainly grabbed my attention...


Edit: Maybe I shouldn't be surprised

In one of my bosses seminars last week students had to bring in an item they considered kitsch, the uni is probably 90% international students and the home students are diverse but white british students are in the minority, one girl brought in a gollywog doll with no shame cause she had no idea that is was anything other than cute and kitsch. I understand the first few minutes were very tense. Outside of taxis, I have found Spain to be one of the most overtly racist places Ive been with most of it put across in 'joke' comments.

there was a dude in full blackface at a halloween party i attended last night. he had a minstrel outfit and white gloves. He kept saying "yes massa" and "no massa". I asked him if he was not worried that a black person might have been at the party and seen his horrid costume. "no massa" he replied in character.

Lots of monkey noises being made in a certain pub in Temple Bar as Hamilton clinched it on Sunday. It was full of about 50 Spanish. In fairness only about 3 or 4 of them were making the din. But they eh, fed into what is fast becoming a commonly held perception of the spanish
