GOOD NEWS! Footballers To Boycott Social Media Over Racism

0

Professional footballers in England and Wales are to boycott social media for 24 hours on Friday, to protest against the way social networks and football authorities respond to racism.
It follows a number of high-profile incidents in domestic and international matches this season.
Earlier this week, Manchester United captain Ashley Young was racially abused on Twitter.
And Watford captain Troy Deeney said “enough is enough”.
“On Friday we are sending a message to anyone that abuses players – or anyone else – whether from the crowd or online, that we won’t tolerate it within football,” said Deeney, who disabled comments on his Instagram after abuse earlier this month.
“The boycott is just one small step, but the players are speaking out with one voice against racism.”
