Driving back from training today while listening to TalkSport discussing the vile racists comments this weekend made towards Zaha and McGoldrick on social media, listening to their reaction of disgust at it and rightly so for that matter because it is horrendous and nobody should be subjected to that and people need to be held responsible for their words and actions.
What leaves a sour taste tho in my mouth and not only this but with everything else of late, i receive and have received more abuse than other player during my 9 years in England wether that be, death threats, bullets sent in the post, birthday cards, letters etc! this is not a cry for sympathy but one to ask the question what is the difference ?
12 year old boys gets arrested for posting racial abuse online to Zaha again rightly so, has anyone ever been held accountable for mines ? No!
Have i ever had my abuse condemned by the media ? ( sky sports, talk sport, newspapers ) No! In fact quite the opposite, the slightest thing that i do that might cause offence to any one is highlighted by them.
I have seen some of my fellow Irish team mates post a black square in support of anti racism as well as post condemning the discrimination and AGAIN rightly so! Have i ever seen any of them ever post a public condemnation of the discrimination i get which funnily enough is a discrimination against them also ? That would be a no!
Does one kind of Discrimination hold a higher bearing over another act of Discrimination ?
I would say am confused but thats the wrong word because confused means not fully understanding something, in this case its quite clear!
