Abstract

Did you know that the well-known Slovak actress and diplomat Magda Vašáryová cut all her contacts with the journalist Fabiano Golgo during the Atlanta Olympic Games in the 1990s, once she had found out that he was gay? She even warned the other members of the Czech team at the Olympics against him. Did you know that members of the Czech team at Atlanta from Prague, Brno and Ostrava told Golgo that their colleagues from the other Czech cities were either "arrogant bastards" or "rednecks" and could not come to terms with what they perceived as their otherness? In connection with a wave of racism in the Czech Republic after the recent high rise fire in the Moravian city of Bohumín in which eleven people died, Jan Čulík talks to Fabiano Golgo about how extremely relative racism is and about the nature of Czech racism. The interview was broadcast by the Czech TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Friday 14th August, 2020.
