“I would deny it. There is no racism. There is maybe one of the players towards another, he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one.”

~Sepp Blatter, FIFA President

In an interview today with CNN’s Pedro Pinto, those words were uttered by FIFA’s (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) president, Sepp Blatter. [Article with video can be found here from The Daily Mail.]

It was only a short time later that it was announced that the English Football Association (FA) was bringing charges against Liverpool’s Luis Suarez for a racial incident last month. The incident occurred during a Liverpool-Manchester United match. Suarez is accused of making racial remarks toward United’s Patrice Evra.

How ironic isn’t it? On the very day that “President” Blatter says there is no racism in football, a football association brings racial charges against one of their players. Hmm. Absolutely makes sense….in the world that is Sepp Blatter. But to the common man, a leader who makes that type of statement knowing that there IS an issue, does not deserve to be leader any longer.

I think the Twitterverse agrees:



Since Mr. Blatter was re-elected by the world’s football associations (including the United States) this past Spring, despite allegations of corruption, I firmly believe there is only one way to bring about change in this or any other sport: Sponsors. Sponsors bring the money that sports require to continue “doing business” as usual. Fans, of course, buy the tickets but unless the sponsors speak up against the actions of a sport, or in this case, a sports figure, ‘business as usual’ will continue. Allegations of corruption will proceed and heads will continue to turn a blind eye to the truth that lays before them. This tweet agrees:
