This is a really good and brutally honest documentary. I wonder what Timbaland’s wife thinks though…
Footballer John Terry has been charged with ‘allegedly’ racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand during a match earlier this year.
The Chelsea star and England captain was seen on television and later all over YouTube shouting abusive words at Ferdinand. He has admitted to calling him a “black c**t”, but denies that the context was racist or intended to cause offence, and says he used the phrase in the context of denying that he had used the offensive term in a previous exchange with Ferdinand.
In response to the news that he has been charged Terry issued this statement,
‘I have never aimed a racist remark at anyone and count people from all races and creeds among my closest friends.
‘I will fight tooth and nail to prove my innocence. I have campaigned against racism and believe there is no place for it in society.’
Hahahaha – yeah okay John! This isn’t the first time you have racially abused black players on the pitch though is it??? You got form son.
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas said,
“The only thing I know is that I will be fully supportive of John Terry, whatever the outcome”.
“He has my full support, he has the club’s full support. We know exactly his human values and personality. They are never in doubt.”
I bet John Terry is sat at home still recovering from the shock of being charged.
I have said this before and I will say it again, the Internet has grown to become such a POWERFUL tool. It is a BEAST! If it wasn’t for YouTube and the thousands of people voicing their opinions/outrage on countless blogs, Twitter and Facebook this entire incident would have just been swept under the carpet. Five/six years this is what would have happened and Anton Ferdinand would have been taken aside and “advised” by the FA (Football Association) to not take things further and bowed down to the pressure.
Liverpool FC player Luis Suarez has been found guilty of racially abusing French Manchester United star Patrick Evra.
Uruguayan striker Suarez has been given an eight-match ban and also fined £40,000.
During a match in October the following happened,
Via The Mail
Manchester United faced Liverpool in a Premier League match. In the 57th minute Suarez fouled Evra and tempers flared at the next corner. They squared up to each other and Evra asked why Suarez kicked him. Suarez said he should forget about it, these things happen. Evra claims Suarez then became racially abusive, using the word ‘negro’. Suarez denies using the word in that clash. Evra is clearly wound up, but nearby players do not seem particularly bothered.
A few minutes later Marriner calls the pair together. Suarez apologises and tries to pat Evra on the head. It is alleged Evra said: ‘Don’t touch me, you South American,’ to which Suarez replies: ‘Porque, negro?’
Evra catches Kuyt two minutes later and is booked. He allegedly shouts at Marriner: ‘You’re only booking me because I’m black.’
Suarez is bemused, saying: ‘I called him something his team-mates call him and even they were surprised by his reaction.’
Today it was also “revealed” that Suarez’s grandfather was black (LOL).
Patrice Evra has stated that he didn’t think Suarez was racist and the FA has accepted that he is not racist.
The word ‘negro’ means ‘black’ in Spanish and Portuguese and is used when talking about something or someone that is black. It is not deemed as an offensive word in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. So apart from calling Evra ‘negro’ what else did he say? Does anybody know?
Hmmmm…. I have a feeling that Liverpool/Suarez will appeal this decision.
Up next the whole John Terry and Anton Ferdinand affair where on this occasion there is video footage of England captain John calling Anton a “black c**t”.
Well this didn’t take long!
The Editor-In-Chief of Dutch magazine Jackie has resigned over the controversial article which referred to the singer Rihanna as being the “Ultimate Niggabitch”.
Eva Hoeke initially issued an “apology” but due to the intense backlash she has now released the following statement announcing her resignation.
“I realize that my first reaction through Twitter, in which I indicated that it was a joke, has been an incomplete description of what me, and also the author of the article, meant. The term ‘niggabitch’ came from America and we solely used it to describe a style of dress. Because of the enormous pressure through social media I was tempted to promise amendment regarding the language in future issues of Jackie. Apart from that I also offered a rectification. I have now come to the conclusion that rectification is not the right solution. I regret that I have taken a stand too quickly regarding an article in Jackie — which moreover had no racial motive at its basis. Through the course of events, me and the publisher have concluded that because my credibility is now affected, it is better for all parties if I quit my function as editor-in-chief effective immediately. After putting my heart and soul into Jackie for eight years, I realize that these errors – although not intended maliciously – are enough reason for leaving.
“The term ‘niggabitch’ came from America and we solely used it to describe a style of dress.”
See what you started America! Hahahahahaha.
NiggaBitch: “A style of dress” – I can’t…
Anyway good luck with the job hunting Eva.
I just hope that silly little fool Rihanna has learnt something from this incident and thinks twice before constantly referring to herself and others as “bitches” and “niggas” on Twitter .
