Racist Latin America?

Racist Latin America?
When the visiting team scores, River’s ‘barras bravas’ (hooligans) raise their arms, face their opponents and chant: “Go live in Bolivia, all your family is there”. La Bombonera quivers. “You come from Bolivia and Paraguay and live in a ‘villa’ (slum),” they continue. This is a “joke”, not a violation of the discrimination law, argued Luis Cevasco, an Argentine attorney, when the Bolivian embassy took the chants to court in 2009. Is this an isolated incident? The most recent poll by the Argentine Institute Against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism (INADI) found that 36% of the population think “Argentina should be only for Argentines”. President Mauricio Macri has recently issued a decree to limit access for immigrants.
