Well, we’ve done the religious thing and also the PC Transgender thing so, what the hell, let’s do the race thing …
During today’s Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur one of Chelsea’s players, Antonio Rüdiger was subjected to racist abuse.
The referee immediately followed protocol, halted the game and went over to the touchline where he alerted both managers. An official investigation will follow and if CCTV cameras identify the person or persons responsible they will be arrested, fined, and banned from all soccer games for life.
And Prof has reminded me a few minutes ago there were even stadium announcements!
I hope they catch the ignorant bastard/s.
But what is equally ridiculous is that, Spurs, like almost every soccer team these days, has players of all creeds and religions. and of course, colours.
So if a (presumably) white Spurs fan is racially abusing a black player on the opposing side what does this say to the players of colour on his team?
Personally, in this day and age, I can’t wrap my head around the mentality that drives individuals to behave in this manner – and I live in South Africa!
I have no answer to this racist crap, but this advert, from South African fast food restaurant chain, Nando’s Chicken, might help.
