David James, who was the first ever black goalkeeper to play for England, has claimed racism in football doesn't exist anymore, as it is a talk of the past.

James also accused anti-racist groups of stirring up talk of racism to keep their jobs.

"I struggle with the racist issue as I don't see it. The game's changed," the Sun quoted James, as saying.

Anti-racism campaigners such as Kick It Out have been prominent in recent weeks, with cases like the one involving John Terry and Anton Ferdinand. (ANI)
