Liverpool’s failure to come down on Luis Suarez’s well documented racial abuse of Patrice Evra seems to have emboldened a LFC fan or a few fans to heap the same on Oldham’s Tom Adayemi in their FA Cup fixture. The right back was visibly upset and had to be calmed down by Steven Gerrard, his team mates, and the referee. Maybe the mindless morons were thinking doing so would somehow bring back Luis Suarez from his eight match ban. The police are now investigating the incident and Liverpool has promised its co-operation.
Even apparently reasonable people seem to have lost their moral compass. Here the author of this article seems to be using cultural relativism as an argument. It is apparent he couldn’t be bothered to read the FA commission’s report. There is no relativism when Suarez tells Evra,” I don’t talk to negroes.” And then draws attention to his skin by pinching it and mockingly calls him negro three more times. It is racial abuse whether you are in the UK or Uruguay or any other part of the world.
