No Room For Racism In Premier League

The premier league launched its no room for racism action plan in February 2021, outlining many commitments for creating creater access to opportunities and career progression for black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups in football and actions to eradicate racial prejudice.Lookman has been a victim of racial discrimination on social media and is urging social media companies to put more efforts to minimize that bad habit. For Leicester's winger Ademola Lookman, racism is a sign of ignorance which he hopes will be eradicated as the next generation learn about the importance and value of diversity."I don't think it's right for somebody to hide behind the screen and to send all kind of messages and get away with it,"he says.

According to Lookman people should be held more accountable, especially people who are grown up enough to make their own decisions and yet they are still having habits of discrimination.

The premier league has dedicated the latest weekend and next round of match action to their ongoing No Room For Racism initiative, which includes an extensive library of free teaching resources available via Premier League Primary Stars.

Will racism end?
