self-determination and their efforts for the region to become an autonomy state scott hodler al-jazeera. mexican immigration agents have detained over three hundred central american migrants of attempting to cross over to the u.s. this week it's the largest raid they've carried out in more than a year the detainees are part of a. that was travelling north through mexico and with immigration checkpoints now exhausted there around the south of the country people as a few more dangerous option they're resorting to sitting on top of a train though as the base seems easy to dial lose millions he's passed off to foreign oil all. manner of apollo has more from the day i got and saw the japs. were standing near the railroad tracks in the town of out of the agony in southern mexico just under three hundred kilometers north of the mexico guatemala border and it's kind of a surreal scene to my right is a freight train known as a lobbyist see over the beast in spanish and to my left
1:11 pm
a group of central american migrants and all i would say that there's some around three hundred central american migrants that are waiting to climb aboard this train now the reason that we're seeing so many of these people opting to climb aboard this specific freight train which has been known in the past to claim the lives of migrants who simply fall asleep and fall off the side of the train cars is that many of them are afraid to walk on the highway or hitch rides on the highway given a change in attitudes both by the mexican people and the mexican government themselves and i say this change in attitude because in the past when we would see migrant caravans making their way north across the mexican border with the wal-mart with guatemala we would see people welcoming these migrants with open arms who would see donations taking place and we would see mexican officials simply allow them through mexican government was even handing them humanitarian visas to allow them to transit freely throughout the country none of that is happening any more it's almost a night and day changed here that that's a train signalling for more people to get ready the trains getting ready to move
1:12 pm
now. most of the people that we've seen have already climbed aboard but what we're hearing overwhelmingly from central american migrants present predominantly from honduras is that they're afraid they're worried they're uncertain about what their next steps are going to be but they are determined to make their way toward the u.s. southern border. former u.s. vice president joe biden has officially entered the twenty twenty race to the white house it marks his third attempt to the presidency and as our white house correspondent kimberly hellcat explains his candidacy is not without challenges. so glad to be here with you today never before have the candidates to become the u.s. democratic presidential nominee been more diverse of the twenty running many are candidates of color and female joe biden is neither in the battle for the soul of this nation that might be one reason biden chose the issue of race in his

1:14 pm
given five and shifting positions many younger a progressive voters continue to support senator bernie sanders candidacy. they see biden as the old guard washington failed to stop trump any progressive see sanders as a consistent challenger of the democratic party's establishment wing joe biden has a wealth of experience decades of experience the problem is joe biden's record is all over the map but perhaps one of the best men. years of biden's vulnerability comes from his former running mate president barack obama america's first black president obama's spokesperson so far has praised biden's candidacy but stopped short of endorsing biden river windsors. when the moment joe biden will have to convince the diverse and useful members of the democratic party that
1:15 pm
a seventy six year old white man is the only candidate that can defeat president donald trump it's a paradox that biden will have to work to overcome kimberlee help at al jazeera the white house. by call phone troy is the acting director of the road walters leadership and public policy center at howard university he says joe biden has a good chance of winning the democratic nomination. it is a very crowded field and under ordinary circumstances i'd say his chances are not particularly strong but for what it's worth all of the polling that's come out of the course of the last few months measuring public opinion among democratic voters shows him consistently at the top of the charts now it's still early and there's plenty of room to mess up if you will but at least at this point he looks good the reality is there are too many candidates and it already is too many choices not
1:16 pm
enough attention being paid to some of the candidates who are credible in many ways but just don't have a lot of attention a lot of space to build a name recognition and so at this stage of the game somebody in joe biden's position is much better situated going for bernie sanders as an older white guy back bernie sanders is older than joe barton so are people who can gravitate toward bernie sanders and there's no reason why they couldn't do the same thankless job automatically though i think this election is going to come down to who who can be donald trump and all things wait i think it's more likely to be somebody like joe biden or bernie sanders than it is any of the others who are in the room in mozambique tens of thousands of people have been rescued from their homes off the cycle and kenneth made landfall on the north coast mozambique is still recovering after the devastation from cycling he died just

1:18 pm
is interesting about this observation what is unique about this is that this colony is deep in the world will say it's an area where we expect to stay colder as the world warms so it's an area which we can think of as a refuge for and preparing winds so if in their refuges very are also vulnerable to severe storm of events and that means those safe places aren't too safe as we had previously thought. let's take you through some of the headlines here in al-jazeera sure lanka is revising the number of people killed in sunday's suicide attacks down by more than one hundred five days on the prime minister has admitted to intelligence failures and confusion over how many were killed in the blasts at churches and hotels

1:22 pm
a source near the training ground the a piece faced by ethnic and religious minorities in football has left clubs and governing bodies scrambling to find effective ways to combat it in late march black england international players face races chanting from fans of opposing side montenegro in the euro two thousand and twenty qualifier the european governing body is investigating racism is not just confined to one league of one country through eventis players including most k. and was subject to racist opinions from opposing fans throughout a match earlier this month that came just days after europe's governing body ordered a club shut down esc and that c.e.o. to close parts of their stadium because of racist behavior among their fans players are finding new ways to highlight the scale of the problem and call for action danny rose and raheem sterling two players who were abused throughout that england match in montenegro were among several professionals who joined a twenty four hour social media boycott on friday but we've reported cases of
1:23 pm
racism in football on the increased. more needs to be done we're joined by paul motorman he's a former english premier league footballer who is now active with anti racism group show racism the red card he's in london calling king is author of offside racism playing the white man he's also head coach of the black and asian coaches association he joins us from london also in london as p.r. a power executive director at football against racism in europe and completing our lineup lee wellings is in london he's now to c.n.n.'s sports correspondent who has reported widely on well football hello chad it's good to have enhanced sorry about the subject matter i want to play this to you because this is a game between last year and ac milan poor i'm just wondering what this does to you when you watch this have a have a look has a have a listen. you know. the only.
1:24 pm
thing. i like. this banana is fake you prove this this is twenty nineteen what is going on. it doesn't surprise me it's happening so much now that it's almost normalized you know to the three of the three other gentleman who will tell you that this is something that is being experienced far too often and for me i look at it i just think you know what i'm not surprised it's only it's prevalent i have a huge problem but it's not to say that we don't you england have a huge problem with your boys a kid was was racially abused and his own manager claimed he was partly to blame the victim he's partly to grab so if they are saying things like. i'm not surprised about what. is no surprise to me it's me asking you not in that.
1:25 pm
yeah i think what we say. in football grounds what's happened over the last month. i think you know why there's one element. that might just be a good thing i think the chaps will know what i mean by. high profile. people talking about it the having the conversation well why from what i'd like to see and that's proper action from fee for a new wife but these things happen all the time away from high level football that's something we need to make a distinction here this is top leagues throughout europe where mainly talking it happens week in week out across grassroots football where people are having to walk away from the guy because of racism and the fact that someone like it's brilliant to see rheims come out and talk about this particularly because it means that people are putting a spotlight on what has been there and it's still there it's not that much worse now than it has been for the past few years in the past few decades so i'm picked
1:26 pm
up on what you said lee as i think the line was what has been there and what is still there because we got this tweet from nestle on which we did the show off and i dedicated stream viewer and she writes the racism is making a comeback globally and the world of football isn't any different it's that idea of making a comeback and i'm hoping you can pick up on holland because you know you've been in this industry now for a while do you think this is something that has gotten worse or has it always been there kind of simmering under the surface. so i didn't quite get a question but i think it's always been there that diseases in there think the diagnosis of the z's is changed quite a bit the cli from the seventy's where we actually accept is which are the two focal merlin is no longer acceptable or so with no look at it from a punitive only view but if you look at it deeply transfer some of these lower than study the scientific beliefs about black people that translate from outside start to the rise of the popular. movement within the stadium and i think we need to take
1:27 pm
it this really quite seriously it was happening in those months they saw it in football in their relationship and this needs to be a collective strategic approach to challenging these issues of color as a young player here at sports extreme racism that put all of that in wanting to play football so you may have done some more cultural can you tell us about that story that made you realize how westerns football can bowl. well unlike poorly when you had that fortune of land a professional game disquiet your black plays in the seventy's who were actually with demonized and abused by the white coat in the structure of the game i was called the n. word which are quite dramatic i ended up inception under the method of facts and i think there's a lot of things that those experiences of but what i think caused post traumatic issues facing black players now and in the game of the structures i think is particularly difficult is that you can't locate racism superfan culture that's why
1:28 pm
i call the the kind of like overt thought that there are also of interest to tional so a lot of issues that we need to look at that relationship. i've collins is quite right i mean for me as a kid i experience racism where i live television was pushing a lot of the boy so i kind of lived around there was i had to navigate my way from school house and back again through areas that i knew i couldn't go through because i was a black guy so when it kinds of focal. was i'm ready for it yet did i experience a yes but a different life there was the other stuff where it was told to my face but there were also things like i had physiotherapist people who are positions of authority tell him a few things like well you know you don't need to do this for me today because i know black guys don't like to sweat i had people side to mate kowtow to sides of me
1:29 pm
you know what you're not going to be great over the next few months because the weather is getting cold you know it was it was things like that as well as stuff it was the subtle stuff where people you know because of my characteristics as you think i'm angry i was angry for example. that spells if i disagreed with someone and they say you have to agree your lot are at the agri are you so people start to look at that identify that with me because of my characteristic so it's not just the overt stuff that's in your face it's the susser stuff that people don't see that people are quite sure about. they are what i find one of the reasons that people haven't always say it is the media of course not reporting that sort of comment but. i'm guilty of this as much as anybody else in the i as a young reporter were posted on charlton crystal palace much as the pope died but we spoke about and invitees and then i think partly overshadowed by some of the
1:30 pm
hooliganism that was happening but people just weren't talking about a rights issue when it was happening it was happening supplies it was happening quite quite famous as well as i john bones and over decades these things are still have not been talked about over the last few weeks particularly and in english football obviously with the same kinds of months and i go as well but within the premier league there's been in these high profile case in the game what. you've said and of course the question is is this partly to do with the political climate in the country at the moment is it to do with the tension around breaks it actually some of it's filtering into the into the stadiums i'm quite sure what the chaps think about. dowd's i would say yeah i would definitely say yes because i did work for organisers cookout recently and when the referendum decision came out there was a spike in behavior where people literally it was far more as i could tell people
1:31 pm
to. go out to leave now the thing about you know you'd leave your job at range sterling and what happens in chelsea when he walks over to the side of the pitch to pick up the ball was racially abused for me that upset me because twenty five thirty years ago the exact same thing happened to me i was a guy played one of my teammates before the game said to me listen there's a certain section of the crowd ok with the ball goes out there do not go there and you know as a young lad i'm so close and said now i don't want to give up because well the ball went out there and i went out there and the abuse i got the heat of the high treats the experience when i saw her he. said yeah play me play me just play that so many that let me just play that moment. you know going to hear what people are same people who were that sang. it was racist and can you imagine not being your pace and having to go to work like that. lee just mentioned a very famous incident which was. playing in an f.a.
1:32 pm
cup game and he was kicking butt nonis off the pitch there's a banana there that was in the nine hundred eighteen but let me show you something that was just a little while ago and again here recent game. on the pitch i want to take us next you mentioned the media and that is actually something that we heard in our community as well and so i want to share an example of just one of the examples this is from sterling's actual instagram page document we mentioned his name a little bit earlier and he showcases two headlines really ripped from the headlines one about himself young manchester city footballer twenty on twenty five thousand a week flashes out on a mansion on market for two point two five million despite having never started a premier league match and then he shares another headline about a similar player who also bought a home for his mother and the headline is quite different manchester city's starlet
1:33 pm
phil gordon buys a new two million home for his mom so you can see the difference there but it's that idea that is making headlines itself so this is one from someone we actually got a video comment from this is from e.s.p.n. the undefeated and here is what the author of this piece told the story. research dating back nearly a century shows a strong link between races media messages and people's negative attitudes towards people who code. athletes in particular is so fish here again and even beastly that's what the readers across here who see people who make the monkey noises. at after we. hitch and even using racial slurs i'm going to caesarean start with manchester city. media company outlets are influential in how people view race and racism if british tattoos in particular don't change the way they
1:34 pm
present black athletes are we different harassment. so paul about one over to you do you think that this is something that is being looked at is this needs to change. well hugely you know. that's the kind of the kind of dream faded of of of racist language that i'm talking about i mean you know the way the media represents black and minority players is you know unintelligent it's about their physical abilities not their mental agility you know that's how that's how they view big and black and strong and could rather know never anything to do with their intelligence and if they if they're successful i look at paul pogba people like that for example he's treat this white because he's a successful black man ok who actually is just being himself now you have people out that they never get that kind of negative press that someone like
1:35 pm
paul problem in the early you know through want to budget airline he was too cheap you know splashes out on a house he said flash. not really see why play is being represented in that way and it's not such a little you know very very how trading changed it's so obvious. that no you are simply just taken at it is to say hey we know kind of nice language anymore let's start let's move on well the kind of the you have is is there's an underwear percentage of black and ethnic minority journalists you see out there is there is this program that comes on our local i think u.t.v. supplement thing where all the journalists more mature the journalists are why you know you have this situation where for white men outspoken about racism you know until there is a proper representation of black an effort by lots of people within the media within the rich and vocal press nothing will change because you need to be able to
1:36 pm
challenge those editors their understanding of racism you look at them and you look at possibly house i grew up the people that i grew up with how they've been so. so if you block an ethnic minority people off the they've never seen them in positions of power in fact the only probably out of power they see black the minority people is is that the asian cause about the coffee shop that's about it that's not seen people like you know me in positions of authority so why would i give up some of their power to someone with those characteristics p.r. i want to bring you into the conversation here because paul makes a radical point it's what i who are the gatekeepers who are making decisions and how comfortable are they with making decisions let me just play you a little clip this is our south gate here is the manager of england's national team and he's been asked a question about racism what to support the language what's his comfort level i
1:37 pm
think i try to protect my players as much as a possibly can. i'm not. i'm not your sorority on on the subject. i'm a middle aged white guy speaking about racism it's it's not something i really have . and i just finding a really difficult subject is to broach because. i want my players to to enjoy playing football and not be scarred by the experiences and if people feel i should have done more than then i can only apologize to our whole mess feels like he wants the ground to swallow me he doesn't want to talk about racism of can possibly help it but talking about the governing bodies that were at salons of of the sport how much does that change and i know that some of the you are wet and everyone hot to at impact but how much is
1:38 pm
a child what i think you can just use very interesting idea of power we will power in school. in society that you live and learn is directly related to some of the you know the pitch ratio racist ideas everyone you know whether it's an individual a young guy who's on social media and just throws a racial slur or whether someone who goes. by is a bag of bananas to deliberately whistle about their conception of release powerful who is not. and how very occasionally. i was being made out to learn it's true and i think the lack of. diverse leadership whether it's in the media newsrooms the media hierarchy whether it's governance or whether it's you know the macro coaches and managers we have and it's control it's a very stark issue and i think it's one of those things that does and i'm
1:39 pm
questioning the to the some of the conceptual conceptualization that we've got out of other people in this country the way in which all this is too great to wait and see where he was playing the way to collingwood so you can what you seen as coach is one of those things or about power and they are about the inability of people who are in power at the moment to share to recognize other people have a contribution to make to recognize through diversity we could do better and not going back to just miss what about god i was surprised actually that he felt so on can't really like most people i took his so the plea is he's is me a couple if you like that he didn't do more. at face value but i was surprised to see somebody who's played with players since he was a child you know they're at ease not many many like him as a player probably socially as well so surprising still feels uncomfortable talking
1:40 pm
about race and particularly as it will be i'm not going to feign care of southgate verify para i'm going to i'm going to jump in to defame cats are no you're not attacking him i want to actually make a distinction for very passionately about this the garcelle there are members that well remember his attitude demeanor about what was happening with his players and i think the thing about golf southgate is he speaking very honestly and openly you can see the honesty dripping from him and you can see his taking on a sense of all my shame about how we deal with these issues and i think there's a big difference in how gaffe southgate has dealt with it and what paul was talking about a moment ago with the kind. prog on the has four grumpy white male middle aged journalists who have the change to psion that program in the u.k. you know who wanted to talk about this you know we're just well you know boy are there for white men on this program or guess what it is you you want there so what
1:41 pm
