"The fight against racism is often called a 'war.' Except wars, of course, generally have endings whereas this one may never have. Football has been reminded about that too many times but organisations such as Show Racism The Red Card are making sure it is always on the agenda and deserve enormous credit for their work. For the campaigning to work, it's incredibly important that the media are pro-active, too. The Guardian and The Observer have tried to be at the forefront of this and will continue to be so."
