Racism in football 2018

Once upon a time there was a words game called modern society.
Where an English footballer accuses the media of feeding racism.

Where, usually, the media accuse the politicians to do the same.
Where politicians point the finger at those who insult and attack.
And where those who are guilty of such ignoble actions deny it is racism, the cause of everything.
So, that fist is just violence.
And that offense is ignorance, at worst, idiocy.
That spit is rudeness.
And those “buu” at the stadium are just supporters chants.
That assault of many against one is a joke.
And that unpleasant epithet is an unhelpful phrase.
Because, at the end of the day, racism is part of us, or it does not exist.
And if it does not exist, we have not heard about “black players”, but just “players”.
Not even “black athletes”.
But only “athletes”.
In short, humans.
How I wish it was like that...
