Apparently, Moscow soccer authorities punished a Black for swearing, without punishing those who were doing a racism against him.
How can we possibly allow the World Cup to be held in the most homophobic and racist nation on the planet, presently engaged in trying to take over the world so they can gas all the homos?
FIFA has asked the Russian Football Union to explain why it banned a Ghanaian footballer for two matches for his reaction to fan racism and did not sanction the alleged abusers’ team.
In video from Friday’s Russian Premier League game, Spartak Moscow fans could be heard racially taunting FC Ufa midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong. The former Arsenal player is black.
Reacting with a finger gesture to the fans led to Frimpong being banned for two games, while Spartak escaped punishment over the latest racism incident to blight Russian football ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The RFU found no evidence of racism.
But FIFA sustainability head Federico Addiechi, whose brief covers racism issues, said Thursday that the Russians have been given until Tuesday to respond to the governing body’s disciplinary department.
“We don’t have a direct responsibility for what’s happening in the Russian league,” Addiechi said in St. Petersburg. “But if the Russian Football Union are in need of our support, and I think they are, then we can provide certain support.”
Russia’s second city on Saturday hosts the qualifying draw for the World Cup, which has increased the spotlight on the country’s struggle eradicating racism from football matches.
“It is up to us as the organizers of this event to make sure this event is welcoming everyone, it is safe for everyone — not just for the players and participants but also for the fans,” Addiechi said.
Are you actually supposed to punish a team for having racist fans?
I think I have heard this somewhere else.
How is that possible?
Couldn’t a team send a team of agents to dress as fans of the opposing team, do racism, and then get that team punished?
Who makes these rules?
Wouldn’t it be better if Putin himself was making these rules? Perhaps a team of Donald Trump and Putin, making all rules for everything?
