Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: We should be proud of how far we've come

The crafty king of FIFA acts like the hapless Louis XVI. Poor Sepp Blatter. So old, so paternalistic, so disconnected from the values of the egalitarian modern world. So European. So unlike the Brits, who this week have every reason to feel mighty proud. Here Blatter was excoriated for his obscene dismissal of racism on the pitch as something resolvable with a handshake. In other EU countries not an eyebrow was raised. They do not care. Britain has its own ignoble history of imperial exploitation but it has always produced extraordinary resisters and, after the US, has been at the forefront of legal sanctions against discrimination. Good black and white people together have struggled against racial iniquity for centuries.
