There’s a new petition that has hit the web and it addresses racism at the world cup. If you have been enjoying everything there is to offer that concerns soccer, then world cup is your life right now. It’s a time where the world seems to all be concerned with one topic and its a sort of love spread throughout supporting countries.
Now the love for soccer has become a time for social ignorance as well; in the form of blackface. While this is not the first time I have heard of racism in the world cup games, I’m somewhat relieved there is at least a petition making its rounds around the web. To be honest there have been reports of far worse racism, like a banana thrown at a black soccer player. These types of alarming racist taunts need to stop and I have the petition here to sign if you support the call to end blackface at Fifa.
Update: Fifa is now opening a case and investigating photos of blackface.
