(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND WINGER, RAHEEM STERLING, SAYING: "Yeah I think, you know on the topic of racism, I think a lot of it's to do with miseducation.
I think a lot of it's to do (with) not knowing a lot about other people's cultures and I feel especially in our country where it's really diverse, getting to be around different ethnicities, I think that makes it a lot easier.
You know other parts of the world you go, you might not have as much diversity, but as I said a lot of it is down to not really understanding people's background and cultures and kind of feeling threatened by it.
But it's one where if you kind of open up and show the love and respect and learning new cultures, you find out like everyone's just exactly the same really." STORY: England winger Raheem Sterling believes that racism stems from "miseducation" and a person feeling "threatened" by a culture they do not properly understand.
