I was very impressed with the way that the 'Respect' campaign was integrated into the Euro 2012 football championships and would like to add my small voice in support of it.

In case you don't know what the campaign stands for this is a quote from one of its ambassadors:

"Football today more than ever needs a strong reminder that everybody is equal on and off the pitch, regardless of their race, religion, skin colour or gender."

Of course the real point is that this sentiment should not just apply to football but to every aspect of our society.

The differences are slowly disappearing as different races intermarry and produce mixed race children. If only we were all one colour there wouldn't be a colour issue.

Here is another quote, a favourite of mine, this time from the lyrics of "Melting Pot' sung by Blue Mink:

"What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got 
Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee-coloured people by the score."
