Two incident took place in sport this week that made me feel the world still cares. Dani Alves had a banana thrown at him during the last game, he lifted it, took a bit and went on with his game. Players and football fans from around the world showed solidarity and started posting photos while eating a banana while referencing the hashtag #WeAreAllMonkeys. This sends a strong message to all the low life racist twats there! The fan who threw the banana was banned for life, and there are calls now to shame him in public.
In another story this week, a tape was leaked for Donald Sterling, the owner of the LA Clippers NBA team. In it he was allegdly speaking to his girlfriend who is half black, telling her to remove all black people from her instegram account and telling her not to friend black people. If i heard the tape myself. He had the audacity to tell her that she can sleep with “them” but she should not promote it, as in, do it, but don’t let anyone know. What a loser! So the NBA has banned Donald Sterling for life from attending meetings, games, training sessions or even entering the stadiums. They are also working on forcing him to sell the team.
Good week for the fight against racism.
