Football Fans: Under Their Skin
Robbie Lyle is Arsenal Superfan. He is also a YouTuber. Football is his greatest passion as well his job. But as a black supporter Robbie has witnessed racism and experienced it himself. Taking your son or daughter to a game is a rite of passage and bonding experience for most football fans but racism dampens the experience. Robbie meets with other black fans – all who had experienced overt racism at a game to one extreme or another. Robbie remains optimistic and resilient (and loyal to his team) in this gentle slice of life that underlines how racism can affect everyday pleasures that most take for granted.
