If you haven’t seen it yet I’m sure you’ve heard about Sepp blatter’s latest brain fart. Apparently racial abuse can be absolved with a simple hand-shake and despite the numerous incidents of racism in football in recent times, racism doesn’t exist in football. It may seem like there is but there isn’t. Sepp Blatter said there isn’t so you can just shut your stupid face.
I’m not even sure this is the most ignorant, dumb-headed thing I’ve heard him say, the only surprise is that he is the head of the largest and furthest reaching sporting organisation in the world but fingers crossed this latest gaffe will motivate the only people who can remove him from his position to do just that. So come on Adidas, Coca-Cola, Kia, Sony, Budweiser, Emirates, Visa and the rest, take a stand and do something for the good of the game rather than all those things which you pretend are for the good of the game but are really just methods of promoting your brand by aligning yourself with something people love.
