Race and foul judgments in football - it's not black and white

More from the British Psychological Society.

Complex findings suggesting racism (including fear of being thought racist) in football refereeing of fouls.
Compare perhaps with findings of police use disproportionate stop powers on the streets (see Stopwatch).

Interestingly Pascal Gygax and his colleagues presented 43 White football players, 17 White referees and 22 White football fans with 64 challenge sequences created with the Xbox 360 console game Fifa 2005.
