Top French soccer club fined for racially profiling players

(CNN)French football club Paris Saint-Germain has been fined €100,000 ($114,000) for racially profiling youth players.

Investigative website Mediapart published leaked documents in November last year revealing that PSG detailed the ethnic origins of potential recruits, listing prospective players as French, North African, black African or West Indian.
It is illegal in France to collect data based on an individual’s race, religion, or ethnicity.
