Topic: Luis Suarez -Patrice Evra
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is accused of making racial slurs toward Manchester United’s Patrice Evra during a soccer game on October 15, 2011, a Premier League match. Evra claims Suarez made several racial remarks.
Evra is from Senegal says the cameras support his claim. The British media says he may have used the word “negrito”; however, the director of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Politics at the University of California Los Angeles, Mark Sawyer says, negrito is not considered a racial slur in Latin America and Sawyer concludes with “It’s often a term of endearment,”
Suarez is suspended for 8 matches, fined £40,000 which is $63,000 US dollars while the incident is being investagated. Football Association said, Suarez has 14 days to appeal.
