Alves-Diop, racism also measured by classes
Levante beat Atlético de Madrid at the Ciutat de Valencia by two goals to zero for the third time in four seasons. Simeone's team, could have dealt a final blow to proclaim himself champion of the Spanish League. this circumstance, made thousands of mattress fans travel to Valencia to celebrate a more than possible title that was truncated after the unquestionable victory of the Caparrós team. So far everything would be normal if it had not been for what happened at the end of the game.
the minutes played 93 when Pape Diop approached the corner where the vast majority of the athletic fans were located to take a corner. It might be four, as they say in these cases, that they will not represent the fans or it may be that the tension of the moment when seeing their team losing a game in a place that did not enter their accounts but the truth is that an unfortunate event occurred.
Right behind the Senegalese Levante player, began to be heard those songs that have spread so much in recent years and that take us to times very far from what should be expected in the 2014. The cry of the monkey, it was heard and the Levante player began to dance, he messed up. Godín pounced on Diop and at one point almost all the players and coaches of both teams were involved in the issue.
The action, of racist overtones was regrettable, like a week ago with Dani Alves, but there is something that was even more so, the treatment of some media about the matter. If last week, after throwing a banana, a mega campaign was originated with the rigorous photo of the entire world of football and outside of it. In the case of the Levante player, the first thing we could read were things like that “Pape Diop cheats on the Atlético fans” O “unfortunate action by Pape Diop” among some of the best pearls.
Alves action by the way, thanks to media pressure and being the same, led to the demonization of a boy from 25 years to which it has not been enough to beat and be fired from Villarreal, club where I was in the lower but they have ended up acting (in my modest opinion in a populist and exaggerated way) the forces of Law and Order of this country while other much greater crimes have less punishment.
What saddens, It is to see how this same media press that defended the famous Barcelona player so much not only ignored the shameful fact about the African Levante player but also some and there were not a few, they dared to charge against him. By the way, The server who writes them was present in the stadium and a few meters from what happened, unlike many of those who suddenly charged the player who had to go out at a press conference to tell what happened and almost lost, sorry for having repelled the insults racists received in their own home.
With the passing of the hours, many have changed their version, but in the first moment, the treatment of the subject was what it was. A nice, opinions are like asses, everyone has one, as the great Clint Eastwood says in one of his films but this leads us to think that perhaps the hypocrisy of some media is evident or something much worse, that perhaps the level of racism is also measured by class. The final opinion as always, We leave it to you.
