FIFA president Sepp Blatter told CNN Wednesday that on-field racism was not a problem in football. In his remarks Blatter told CNN World Sport anchor Pedro Pinto that players who have been abused should shake hands with their opponent upon the final whistle and move on.
Racism is not acceptable on the pitch or off the pitch and to tell people that they have to ignore and accept racial abuse reveals his true attitude to the serious issue of racial discrimination everywhere and more especially in football.
FIFA deserves a leader who is principled and respects the rights of all humans. Blatter has contributed all he knows to FIFA ,surely there is a more principled person to led FIFA into a new era of transperancy and decency.
Please sign this petition so we can give FIFA a chance to improve. All people of colour deserve respect and will not be told to shake hands with those who disrespect and insult them.
If you have ever admired players of colour for their skill, sign our petition and give players the respect they deserves for their abilities not insults.
I firmly believe fifa is killing the sport, keep corruption out. Bribery, lies and backroom deals are all things that relate to fifa. Even David Cameron has said fifa's dealings are “murky”.
With fifa officials being probed and qatar hosting a world cup I think it's time to turn our back on fifa.
The expose by the British media and the BBC Panorama programme on the 29th of November 2010 of the corruption within the FIFA Executive and the fact that they are largely ignoring it.
Since becoming FIFA President in June 1998, Sepp Blatter has committed innumerable crimes against the sport of football, blatantly disrespecting the game, its players, its supporters, and its officials.
Blatter has been involved in several scandals:
1. Allegations of corruption and financial irregularities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA#Allegations_of_financial_irregularities)
2. Blatant sexism towards female footballers in 2004 when he suggested that women should "wear tighter shorts and low cut shirts... to create a more female aesthetic" and attract more male fans
3. Refusal to implement modern goal-line technology to take pressure off referees and ensure fair play
