MLS fans across the continent are set to make a definitive stand against racism.

Immediately after the anthems at the Vancouver Whitecaps v DC United match this weekend, members of the Vancouver Southsiders will raise red cards to show their opposition to racism.

In Seattle, members of Gorilla FC will do the same at their March 31st match with San Jose Earthquakes.

I love when fans, organized by their fan clubs come together and display bold messages like this one. In Germany fan clubs create big campaigns against neo-nazis. Big gatherings create strong emotions and this can sometimes lead to wrong impressions and people on the fringe can ‘poison the well’ by using large groups to push the wrong message.

Take a stand.
