Show Racism the Red Card Education Worker and Football Coach, and former England international, appeared on the Islam Channel.
Show Racism the Red Card Education Worker and Football Coach, and former England international Luther Blissett, appeared on the Islam Channel on the 21st November discussing recent events.
Luther was joined by Murad Qureshi (member of the London Assembly for the Labour Party) on the 'Politics and Media' program - hosted by Salma Yaqoob (leader of the Respect party) - where they explored the issue of racist incidents within football and wider society. They also went on to discuss comments made recently by Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA, who stated that incidents of racism on the pitch could, and should, be settled with a handshake after the game.
Show Racism the Red Card vehemently condemns Sepp's comments, and have released an official statement calling for his resignation.
Our educational resource, aimed at tackling prejudice towards Muslims, as well as those who are perceived to be Muslim, 'Islamophobia' also featured on the program. The 'Islamophobia' DVD and education pack is available in our online shop.
