Just so you know I added a bit more content to my post just before you replied.
A Horrendous incident ? He had a heart attack ( In total, 146000 people have a heart attack every year and 94000 of them die. ... 179 people
lose one of their parents every day to a fatal heart attack)
I would hardly call it a horrendous incident.
Yes, and it's still a horrendous incident. As is any heart attack. Obviously.
Bear in mind the person in question here was only 23 years old as well. So yeah, I do stand by what I said.
My point is that due to him been a footballer the man has been jailed for racial comments. If he was not a footballer and just a average joe
would the man have been jailed ?
Yes he still would have been jailed. But I see what you're saying still. Because Fabrice is famous and is a footballer the abuser has received much
more attention for his comments. In fact I don't think I, or anyone else for that matter, said otherwise. And of course that's not fair to everyone
else, again no one said otherwise there. But so what. This is a racist and he's facing punishment for his racist comments and we're shining a
spotlight on him and what he's done.. how you, or anyone else, can defend him is beyond me. The fact he's facing punishment is a great thing. I hope
this incident causes us to look closer at other incidents going on and put a stop to them - Like I said before, there's no room for such hatred in
our world in my opinion.
You should know though, if anyone's ever being racist, whether it be face to face or through any social network out there, they can still be punished
by the law if the incident is reported. It may not get all that much publicity, but people will still face punishment for it.
