I believe I’ve mentioned here in the past the sorry state of Spain’s attitude towards black footballers. This past weekend at a Zaragoza v Barca match was another item for the scrapbook. Soccernet has a decent piece on this: It Isn’t Rocket Science…
I also found the accompanying video to what happened (11mb-so right click/save as). The visible pain on Samuel Eto’o’s face is just gut-wrenching. The only remotely good thing that happened was Barca then banging in two and at least winning on the pitch.
UPDATE: Talk about a slap on the wrist…Zaragoza has been fined $10,000.
