Dani Alves

 

Barcelona defender Dani Alves may not have intended to start a movement against racism when he spontaneously rejected a fan’s attempt to humiliate him by eating the banana that was meant to be a racist gesture, but he did.

The soccer world showed their support for the Brazilian when various stars like Alves’ Barcelona teammate Neymar, posted pictures of themselves enjoying a banana. This is definitely the type of ubiquitous unity that is needed to get this ugly stain out of the beautiful game.

By the way, the fan guilty of the racist act was banned for life from the El Madrigal stadium by Villarreal.
