Dat was een raar beeld in de rij bij de kassa van de Albert Heijn: rijen met Chinezen die allemaal 1 potje Nutrilon melkpoeder kopen en zich buiten verzamelen, soms de pot overdragend om er nog één te kopen. Ik dacht dat die verhalen in de media enige overdrijving bevatten..... (zegt wat over m'n vertrouwen in de media hè)

Maar dit is dus het resultaat van het "beleid" van supermarkten om maar 1 pot per Chinees te verkopen en van de fabrikanten als Nutrilon om niet meer aan Chinese importeurs te leveren?

+The New York Times​: Anti-Semitism in the Soccer Stands http://nyti.ms/1yF6IQN

Schopt Nederland het weer eens tot de serieuze buitenlandse media, gaat het over diepgeworteld racisme bij voetbalsupporters. Beetje jammer is dat.

Ooit stonden we bekend als een open en tolerant land. Helaas bleek dat een farce, waarschijnlijk opgelegd aan hun achterban, door de baasjes van de verschillende zuilen. Wellicht om schuldgevoel voor de brede coöperatie met de nazi's goed te maken.

Met de ontzuiling lijkt ook de echte Nederlandse volksaard uit de fles te knallen, met als zichtbare resultaten de opkomst van extreem rechtse bewegingen als de PVV maar ook een ruk naar rechts van een middenpartij als de VVD (we sluiten de grenzen). En dus ook zichtbaar in het voetbal, bij de supporters!
