    How exactly isn't he a racist at that point in time when he specifically made reference to someone's skin colour when insulting them?

    Negrito is not an insult, it just gets wrongly translated to the N word in English. In SA Spanish, pet names usually include people's most striking traits, whether it's skin colour, hair colour, weigth, profession kr whatever. "Negrito" means something like "my little black" or "my darling black", which is quite common and has no racist connotations whatsoever. You will also hear e.g. Puerto Rican people referring to each other as "maronito" (referring to the brownish skin colour), it's normal.

    What Suárez meant to do was to belittle him by ironically calling him a pet name. He could also have said "pequeñito", referring to his height or whatever, main thing was not the skin colour but belittling him. So that doesn't show any racist intent. He might be a racist, I don't know as I haven't heard him talking about his views and I can't look into his head, but calling someone negrito is no indication for that. It just shows his cultural ignorance. Same goes for Higuaín, Heinze etc.

    Evra interpreted it as racist because in Europe, that's what it is, so it's understandable he felt offended.

    Negrito ....,understandable he felt offended.
    Funny that Suarez should lie about he incident after using Negrito in an 'ironic' way several times.

    Clearly calling someone my little black is a term of empowerment

    So, no, I'm not referring solely to that handball.

    Nevertheless, IF I had done this, I certainly wouldn't have viewed it as some noble, heroic act. It wasn't.
    Can't be arsed in general, you've got selective blindness or something, along with this moral high ground complex that perfect circle referred to.

    I don't know where nobility comes into football, certainly never a word I've heard associated with any sport. But Suarez's handball is most definitely heroic, admirable, excellent, whatever you want to say. I would defend it till the end of the world.

    Is it just me or does she almost sound as if she is enjoying the public attention?
    Of course she is. Most likely made enough £$£$£$£$ to last her 10 lifetime in those 5 minutes.

    I don't understand why are you comparing Giggs and Suarez? They paly in different position? Suarez is a forward and Giggs is a mid-filder. I don't think this comparison is right.

    Compare the person.

    Not compare the footballer.

    Suarez>Giggs as a forward.
    Giggs>Suarez as a midfielder.
    Giggs>Suarez as a defender.

    Therefore, Giggs > Suarez.

    Suarez comes across as nicer. I dunno really, to me Giggs comes across as quite callous and fake (his eyes never smile, but of course that could be an anatomical thing). It could also simply be that Giggs, just because of having been exposed to the English media for a long time, has learned to fake his image better than Suarez, and that makes him seem less likeable to me.

    Also, taking out a super-injunction. :rofl:

    Suarez is a silly wee boy who's still trying to grow up. Giggs, on the other hand, is a despicable human being. He's a disgusting man! :eek2:

    From the first page I count 9 condemnations and 1 saying they aren't bothered. Nothing about it being acceptable, not comparable.
