Today Max, Barry, Troy Townsend and John Barnes discuss racism in football and society, on the release of John’s new book – The Uncomfortable Truth About Racism.

Footballing authorities are struggling to deal with players racially abusing each other, fans racially abusing players in the stadium and anonymous online racial abuse. There’s a lack of representation in the dugout and the boardroom, and John’s book goes beyond football to look at racism as a wider issue.
