    Most of the time when we are in the country of the caucasians we tnd to forget that racism is part and parcl of colonialism. When Mikel Obi was making all the noise he forgot where he was coming from and where he was. You might enjoy the benefit of the place and laws for as long as you do not come against their own. You could be born there, marry there even have one of your parents from there, but do not come against their own. Hard lesson though for those who think the system fully accept them. Learn to handle fame better Mikel.

    This is not racism. Mikel Obi was duly investigated and was discovered that the allege comments were revealed to him by a third party who denied having heard the referee make such racial comments. That serves him right and to teach him not to rely on rumours to make allegations.
