The world can be a scary place. Things are always changing as the old ideals are thrown away or re-jigged – sometimes it seems better just to stay in the house and cower behind the sofa waiting for death.
Unfortunately, there are also some things that will NEVER change, there will always be old ideals that are never thrown away or re-jigged – sometimes it seems better just to stay in the house and cower behind the sofa waiting for death.
Even more unfortunately, one of the things that shows no sign of changing any time soon is the huge problem of racism in Spain. There are some thoroughly depressing words from Barcelona’s Dani Alves after the jump…
Speaking to Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo about the racism in Spain, the Brazil full-back said:
“Unfortunately, I have learned how to live with it. Every match the crowd goes after me. They insult me, call me monkey.”
“I don’t give it a lot of importance. I think you are only offended if you make a big deal about it. My family gets sad. They complain, but I try to distance myself from it.”
And as if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Alves finishes with this stark message:
“They punish the clubs sometimes, but it’s uncontrollable. It will never end.”
The Spoiler’s good mood this morning is rapidly disappearing… Terrible. Sort it out, Spain.
