Race and racism in Honduran soccer and society

haziq's insight:

I used to think that racism is never a common prejudice in most countries. but now, i think that racism is very common in countries, such as, Honduras. and i wonder how the people in the country handle this problem.

It is ironic how sports 

 

such as soccer and tournaments such as the world cup which is meant to unite people of different ethnicity and walks of life can result in so much hate a fine example would be this article where the Colombian player received astounding amounts of hate such as racial slurs after neymars injury thus proving how racism is a much more complex issue which need to be widely disscussed

Peng Han Ho's curator insight, July 21, 2014 10:31 AM

In sports, there should only be meritocracy and none of racism, but in this case, conflict has arose from simply the fact that a player is of a different colour. This brings the question of whether a fundamentally unsound society that is in Brazil, which still is largely racist, is fit to host this international sports event where people of different race, religion and culture come together to play a game.

but now, i think that there still is a handful of people who just had to offend other races.
