Germany walks out of Olympics match after racist attacks by Honduras team.
Shame on Honduras. Such overt racism has no place in the Olympics. Good for Germany for standing up for what is right.

WAKAYAMA, Japan (AP) — Germany’s Olympic soccer team walked off the field during a preparation match for the Tokyo Games on Saturday in response to alleged racist abuse from an opposing Honduras player toward German defender Jordan Torunarigha.

The players left the field together with five minutes remaining in the game after Torunarigha was “racially insulted,” the German soccer federation said on Twitter.

“If one of our players is racially abused, it’s not an option for us to keep playing,” Germany coach Stefan Kuntz said.“It was hard to get him in, he was terribly upset because he said he was repeatedly racially abused,” Kuntz continued. “For us it’s clear, this violates our values, we cannot tolerate it. We’ll take our player completely under our protection.”


Racism (ray-siz-um) noun A phenomenon that started in 1981 at the inauguration of Ronald Reagan, skipped the years 1993-2000, reappeared in 2001, disappeared again in 2009, and reformed in 2017. Uniquely American phenomenon - no other country in the world is racist or has racists living there.


(Phil Leotardo voice, gesturing to Germany: "Martin Luther King ova here")

Seriously - GERMANY complaining about racism? When other countries forced you to build grim museums of your own racism and hatred, you might want to sit a few out. Might be a few bloodstains left in Munich to clean up, anyway.

Back to the point: DU still believes that racism is an American creation.

3. After Berlin in 1936, German athletes have tried to show exemplary behavior at the Olympics

I wonder what the Hondureños were thinking when they brought this guy along with them. They must have known about him before they let him board the plane. Did they think he would remain quiet, or that no one would notice? German citizens born in Africa, Asia or the Middle East hardly raise eyebrows any more in most of Germany. If members of a soccer team from Central America aren't aware of that, it sure as hell isn't the Germans' fault.

Yeah, just that ONE guy.

5. Not the first

I have watched a lot of soccer over the last 2+ months. Many international tournaments and Friendly matches. (I so love commercial free) Multiple times games were temporarily halted because of fans chanting racial slurs at opposing players. The world has been “trumped”. Fans could not wait to return to live games, and this is how they act. Invisible Sky spirit mist be so proud of his image.

7. Republican "values" Honduras style

As role models, the Republicans have pissed upon and poisoned the very ideas of decency, honesty, and respect. Wanker slobs around the world--like this Honduran a-hole--have taken notice, and mindlessly mimic Republican boorishness.


DUmmies: you claim to be world travelers. Please, do us all a favor and spend some time in, say, Seoul, and tell me if racism only exists in the US.
I am not a fan of Donald Trump, but I trust his advisors to steer this country in a more prosperous direction than the Dem monkeys pulling Biden's strings. Is that clear enough?

Typical DU circular logic. The question isn't "Why are things the way they are?", but rather "How does Trumpism/republicanism explain the way things are?"

Let me guess ... a Hispanic Honduran racially insulted a black player on the German team. If I'm correct, it kind of messes with Prog- and DU-Dogma that only whites can be racist. Too bad Pretzellation and Mental Gymnastics aren't Olympic sports. DUpipo would dominate those medal platforms.

These Hondurans sound pretty racist.

We should keep them out of the country.

Yeah, "Torunarigha" doesn't exactly sound Germanic.

You mean Latinos and blacks sometimes don’t get along and generally don’t like each other? I thought they all understood they were collectively being abused by the whites and they are all to cooperate as one in that regard.

That must explain why even when I was in HS the worst fights were always between groups of Latinos and groups of blacks. It’s was all the love they had for each other. How could I miss something that obvious?

Both groups (blacks and Latinos) are taught from birth that welfare is a zero sum game. So the more the other group gets the less you get.

They hate each other much more than they hate whites.

Especially since trannies knocked then down a notch on the victimhood totem pole.
