Things like what people lived with these days Vinicio Jr. In Spain They are used to reflect. Ask yourself some questions, uncomfortable in this case: what would happen if the Brazilian played on the Argentine soccer fields? So obvious, the answer came by itself, on TV, and within hours.

Tuesday night, Gymnastics and Fencing of La Plata received Independiente Santa Fe from Colombia in the forest for the Copa Sudamericana and, according to the footballer Hugo RodallegaThey shouted “monkey” and “black” at him, as if to copy the fashion imposed by Valencia fans (and all the Spanish teams who mistreated Vinicius during the season).

“We are not improving as humanity, it’s a disaster all over the world. The issue of racism is already tiring,” commented the veteran Colombian star, calmly but with eyes on the verge of tears.

The passion for football is so wide-ranging and beyond any logic that a club like Gimnasia can be proud to have had a fanatic Lupo fan like Dr. René Favaloro, as well as being ashamed for these madmen (still unidentified) who have a disservice to Colombian footballers .

These kinds of scenes hurt and anger, but they’re not surprising. Last year, in the Libertadores, other crazy people (they are not fans) but of Mouth AND River they gestured to the Brazilians and had both clubs sanctioned with economic fines by Conmebol, which tends to speak out a lot and do little against acts of racism.

We get used to (wrongly) accepting that it’s okay to say anything outrageous to the other team, to other fans, and to the authority of the referee; now it seems that it continues to harm the human being. It is a dead-end and sloping road, from which one can only get out with education. A reality that goes far beyond the sport itself, it is true.

“Spain is a beautiful nation that welcomed me and that I love, but that has agreed to export the image of a racist country to the world,” wrote Vinicius, accused of being a provocateur but with a courage not common in big stars of football. And he added: “I’m sorry for the Spaniards but today, in Brazil, Spain is known as a country of racists.”

Back in the humid night of La Plata, Rodallega said in his defense in front of the cameras: “In Bogotá we treat them well…”. What image will you take from the Argentines?
