    There are elements of football (soccer) fans of various different clubs in Europe that have affiliations with organizations that range from far right to outright Neo Nazi views. It’s not that common in the UK, although some sections of supporters of Chelsea & Millwall have been linked with Neo Nazi/National front movements, they tend to just be meatheads who are just looking for trouble rather than genuine football fans though.

    Ironically there’s an abundance of Neo Nazi football supporters in the Polish & Russian region, which just goes to show how thick these cunts are when you consider that the Nazis did their damndest to erase those peoples forefathers from the face of the planet.

    There’s a particularly blatant Italian team from Rome called Lazio, their supporters give the fascist salute at games

    they receive regular bans & fines from UEFA for it, the fans don’t care & you could argue the club itself doesn’t care as they do little to eradicate it from their ground. The club can easily identify & ban agitators, they choose not to. The fans claim they’re actually performing a Roman salute but the club itself is steeped in Nationalist history & Nationalistic fans are drawn to it (it was Mussolini’s favorite team).

    One player in particular was banned years ago as he enthusiastically saluted Lazio fans after a particularly fiery encounter with a rival team, his name is Paulo Di Canio & he was all about it

    It was a bit of a shame as he had previously played for the team I support (Glasgow Celtic) which has very leftist leaning support & views, no one at the time was aware of his political views, not publicly anyhow. I loved the dude when he was playing for us, he was skillful, passionate, almost childlike is his approach to playing beautiful, creative, inventive football.
    But it turns out he’s a fuckin fascist, so he can take a long walk off a short pier as far as I’m concerned.

    She, Andrea, fought her first fight int he UFC earlier this year and has been a featured Invicta fighter for a bit. She is fun to watch fight BUT yeah, her point of view was akin to "I seen the tattoos and asked him about them". Even in the off chance that someone has a Swastika or SS Bolts there isn't much to question there. Further, after that was put out there it was posted that her husband was in prison for shooting an unarmed black guy or something to that affect. So, yeah that's not something that can just be swept under the rug in conjunction with the tattoos.

    I am all about rehabilitation, I know plenty of people who have either been to jail or prison who turned their lives around and are productive members of society. That said, the jolly "I have plenty of racist tattoos on my body...but it doesn't represent who I am" shit is just outright dumb. There are racist folk who find people of the race they despise and make exceptions, because "You're not like them" or the more commonly known phrase "I have black friends", and that doesn't make them any less racist or an asshole. I am all about an open dialogue, but the moment he stated removing his tattoos are "not an option" then yes he is confirming to the world that he does indeed agree with those sentiments tatted on him and further those tattoos represent exactly who he is, as they would for any other person who refuses to remove them.

    I would say no. But having him around, on broadcast, etc. is not the best idea. I would also think curtailing promotion on her, given her lack of basic awareness would not be uncalled for.

    I don't want to see her fired but if I am the UFC, as Pointdexter pointed out, I wouldn't be too keen to promote her while he is on screen. Basically he can be in the back with her but I wouldn't allow him to corner her on camera. Think of it like this, Couture was not allowed to corner (UFC) fighters after he left the UFC for a bit. If they can prevent someone from cornering a fighter out of spite they can do so with a valid reason in front of them. This whole situation is weird because both of them acted stunned that the public is appalled that he has "a plethora of racist tattoos (his words)" like that is normal or acceptable.

    Couture was under contract with the UFC.
    As far as I know, only the commission can have a say as to whether someone can corner a fighter or not. The corner isn't contracted with the promotion, their licensed by the state.

    If I'm wrong, then I'd welcome more accurate information.

    I was going to let sleeping dogs lie, but given that others brought up this post again...


    In terms of research, it is important do decide what to condition on and what not. For example, this paper raises the issue of differences in crime rates which impacts the # of police/person interactions (among other important issues/correlates):

    http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1948550618775108

    "Is there evidence of a Black–White disparity in death by police gunfire in the United States? This is commonly answered by comparing the odds of being fatally shot for Blacks and Whites, with odds benchmarked against each group’s population proportion. However, adjusting for population values has questionable assumptions given the context of deadly force decisions. We benchmark 2 years of fatal shooting data on 16 crime rate estimates. When adjusting for crime, we find no systematic evidence of anti-Black disparities in fatal shootings, fatal shootings of unarmed citizens, or fatal shootings involving misidentification of harmless objects. Multiverse analyses showed only one significant anti-Black disparity of 144 possible tests. Exposure to police given crime rate differences likely accounts for the higher per capita rate of fatal police shootings for Blacks, at least when analyzing all shootings. For unarmed shootings or misidentification shootings, data are too uncertain to be conclusive."


    There is also an economist from Harvard that does a lot of research on this. His general conclusion is that there is not much evidence of disparities but that the data is not perfect.

    https://scholar.harvard.edu/files/fryer/files/fryer_police_aer.pdf

    His conclusion section:

    "The time has come for a national reckoning on race and policing in America. But, the issues are thorny and the conclusions one can draw about racial bias are fraught with difficulty. The most granular data suggest that there is no bias in police shootings (Fryer (https://scholar.harvard.edu/fryer/p...-analysis-racial-differences-police-use-force)), but these data are far from a representative sample of police departments and do not contain any experimental variation. We cannot rest. We need more and better data. With the advances in natural language processing and the increased willingness of police departments to share sensitive data, we can make progress. For those of us who desire a more perfect union, police use of force has become our Gettysburg. Of course, black lives matter as much as any other lives. Yet, we do this principle a disservice if we do not adhere to strict standards of evidence and take at face value descriptive statistics that are consistent with our preconceived ideas. ‘Stay Woke’ – but critically so."

    I hope you've gotten over it, because the rest of the class is assigning us reading material.

    It's super unrelated but if anyone wants a fun biography and cool papers, the guy Fryer cited above is the man. I forget the full story, but basically his parents abandoned him, so he lived with his grandma who was a drug dealer, etc. etc. Then he becomes one of the youngest full professors in Harvard history, does a lot of cool shit. And his research always has a fun lens. One of my favorites years ago (I read a draft, never saw the published version) was an argument that (amongst other things I'm forgetting) why the KKK is actually a pyramid scheme, not a political group. It was really interesting.

    Also, @VimyRidge , the idea of using NLP over police data is fun... I work in data science and would happily help setup the technical side of something like that. Let me know if you ever want to see if it's doable.
