I HAVE heard and read an awful lot about Dani Alves since Sunday night when he ate a banana.
Nothing wrong with that you might think, except he (a mixed race gentleman) ate it after it was thrown at him by a moronic waste of oxygen called a Villareal fan.
I won't insult anyone's intelligence by explaining why this is a hateful gesture but the column inches and debate since then has been staggering.
Many footballers and people in public life have eaten the yellow fruit to show their support, instead for the rich levels of potassium!
But some, ironically including anti racism campaigners, have said tougher actions should have been taken and the incident reinforced the problem of racism.
Rubbish! Dani Alves made the idiot who threw the banana look like a complete moron, if we as society make people who do things like this look stupid they will stop doing it.
No one wants to look like a tool on a public stage! If you feel the need to point out someone is different because of the colour of their skin, creed, sexuality or beliefs then I am sorry you are part of this progressive world.
To Dani and everyone else who has or is encountering racism, take them on with gestures not violence.
Whether its becoming President of the United States or eating a banana and then taking a corner kick, showing that vile insults won't stop you is the best way of getting back at the Neanderthals.
They'll die as morons, you might achieve everything you dreamed of!
Bravo Dani, bravo!
