When will it end?

Racism runs amuck over in Europe still and if you don’t believe us, ask Italian player “The Gooch,” Mario Balotelli and US midfielder DaMarcus Beasley.

DaMarcus Beasley’s car was just blown up outside of his home in Glasgow, Scotland.

United States midfielder DaMarcus Beasley’s BMW has been set on fire outside his home in Glasgow. The incident happened Monday in the Scottish city. Beasley said Wednesday on Twitter that “someone blew up my car.” He added that he was “glad no one got hurt.” Strathclyde Police says it is treating the incident as “willful fireraising” and that inquiries are ongoing.

Another player, Balotelli, is still going through racism in the Italian Serie A. Rival team, Juventus, has had fans suspended this year because of racist chants to the youngster.

DaMarcus plays for the hometown team in a totally different league! Will racism ever desist?
