Tension Within Sports + More!!

alves28apr14-472815-550x326During the soccer match between Barcelona and Villareal, Barcelona’s defense player Dani Alves was about to take a corner kick, when somebody from the Villarreal crowd throws a banana at him. He then picks the banana up and eats it. From the comments that we acquired from a YouTube video we saw, many seem to believe that it was an act of racism. According to many of these anonymous comments, they claim how Dani Alves is compared to that of a monkey. One of these comments say, “Spain’s white monkeys hates brown and black monkeys.   They hate them so much they threw away their food!!!” By the looks of it, and all the other comments, most support the reaction Dani Alves took, by eating the banana. They portray his character now with respect, going by the theme of; Saying No to Racism. It is said that the person who tossed the banana toward him was arrested and fired from his job. We cannot be so sure of this source, however. Many say that he handled this situation the best way by eating the banana.

The video of Dani Alves’ reaction to the banana thrown at him can be found here:
