The Slavs were also killed albeit in smaller numbers, I found it shocking how many swastikas I saw spray painted on walls when I first went to Poland, I suspect its just an anti Communist thing that they don't think too deeply about.
As for the Jews its only the last 65 years its been socially acceptable to not hate them. Most countries in Europe bear some responsibility for the War.
England has done a lot of work to eradicate racism in the game even if it's still present as seen in the Evra/Suarez, Terry/Ferdinand stories..
The behaviour of Liverpool supporters was disgraceful but when passion is involved ,rational thinking is going out the window..
Racism is irrational..
How can you insult the opponent's black players when you cheer your own ?
Russia has a far right problem because people tend to accuse others of their own shortcomings..
It is human nature.
I also remember watching in Peckham a Jamaican woman calling a Nigerian man a black C... .
Surreal stuff ..
