WRITING ON THE racist incident in Madrid's soccer stadium: Deacon at PowerLine, Baldilocks ("How much more cultured they are than us poor, provincial racist Americans! (Could you imagine such a chant being raised in, say, the Georgia Dome?) I’m fairly certain, however, that a player of Arab descent would never be treated in this manner. Not since March 11, 2004, at any rate"), Fausta and Molotov ("Yet Euroleftists wanna preach to Americans about racial tolerance? Puhleeze. When you get a Condoleezza Rice or Ron Brown, then let's talk.")

Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph writes that, even though Madrid has apologized, the case is far from settled.
