England’s racism revealed in its Uefa Euro 2020 defeat

The shock of England’s defeat in the Uefa Euro 2020 games wasn’t so much in the defeat itself. That much could have been expected from England's poor record in penalty shoot outs. For many, the real shock was in the resurgence of racism that followed, directed at black English footballers, including the socially-conscious Marcus Rashford, who had failed to convert their penalties. But the cultural critic, Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, argues that it, too, wasn’t really a surprise, that racism and the encouragement of nostalgic self-delusional nativism lie just beneath the surface of English society and are tacitly encouraged and stoked by politicians in times of strife.
