No Me Gusta La Negrita

by on Dec.21, 2011, under Epic FA-ils

I could this of a lot more words which could describe Patrice Evra and none of them have anything to do with race. For example: c*nt, faggot, f*ckbiscuit, cheating tw*t and prick for starters.

Suarez ran rings around Evra, so Evra plays the race card

So it turns out that, throughout the midst of this over drawn out furore of absolutely nothing, that the “racist” word used by Luis Suarez towards Patrice Evra which has caused Evra to whinge a tsunami of tears out of his vagina was nothing more than the word “negrita“. I’m sure my Spanish speaking compatriots here will help me out, but I’m pretty sure colloquially means “little black girl” in Spanish, and is used as a term of endearment, in this case, ironic endearment, mainly because the rest of us recognise that Patrice Evra is a whiny little gimp. But lets look at it this way, have any of you actually heard of this phrase prior to me mentioning it just then? This is up there with the retards who deemed it more politically correct to sing “Baa Baa Rainbow Coloured sheep” in schools rather than the word “black”, because the new version doesn’t sound completely stupid at all does it?

But it’s hardly offensive is it? I do believe that The Rolling Stones had a song called “Hey Negrita” and searching around the internet, I find hispanic restaurants called La Negrita as well as a brand of rum. I know the defence of the term is that it is used around South America and it may not be allowed here in Europe, but considering it means a little girl,  I cannot understand how it can cause offence. And certainly Mick Jagger and co would not be a band of whom you would associate with racial connotations.

If Suarez is charged by the FA, then The Rolling Stones must be banned from being played in every football stadium in the country as the FA cannot be seen to be promoting a “racist” band if they’re going to be consistent. Naturally they will subject him to a ban, quite frankly because Alex Ferguson says so, and you know everything which Old BaconFace says is followed dilligently by the FA hierarchy in fear of him raising his voice.

Aftermath – Tuesday Night

Ok since writing the first part this article, it has emerged in the news that Suarez has in fact been charged and been given an eight match ban. My initial reaction is that this is more f*cking stupid than anything previously considered. The FA have announced:

“A hearing took place from 14-20 December 2011 before an Independent Regulatory Commission of The FA to consider the charge.

“The Independent Regulatory Commission announced its decision on 20 December 2011, which is as follows:

1. Mr Suarez used insulting words towards Mr Evra during the match contrary to FA Rule E3(1);

2. the insulting words used by Mr Suarez included a reference to Mr Evra’s colour within the meaning of Rule E3(2);

3. Mr Suarez shall be warned as to his future conduct, be suspended for eight matches covering all first team competitive matches and fined the sum of £40,000;

Firstly, this is a complete joke and this is beyond comprehension of a normal person if you look at the evidence here as the FA have gone completely insane with the length of this ban.

Secondly they have taken one person’s word over another. The integrity of the evidence is flawed for a start because the integrity of the person is greatly flawed. Apart from people with Man U tinted glasses, it is blatant to see that Evra has actually no itegrity whatsoever, seeing that he was one of the main “revolutionaries” during France’s WC campaign. Granted that Suarez did the handball against Ghana, but if you were the FA, would you seriously take the word of someone with THIS level of honesty:

Granted though, that Evra did probably hurt his vagina from falling down too fast, so I guess the FA will condemn gravity for that, or give Isaac Newton an eight game ban. But this is evidence right here of Evra attempting to get Suarez in trouble with the referee dishonestly. The fact of the matter is that if these allegations are as frequent as Evra has made out, then why did no one else corroborate these allegations? In a packed penalty box, at least someone else would have overheard surely? Unless a penalty box is akin to a silent disco, I can’t see how no one else has given evidence. Evra also only decided to bring this up after the match had finished, if it were as “insulting” as he’s incinuating, then wouldn’t he have approached the referee during the game to make him aware, and then the referee would have taken the disciplinary action appropriately there and then? Plus it’s hardly as if he isn’t vocal towards match officials in the first place.

The lengthy ban confirms to the rest of us supporters that the FA have no idea what they're doing

Look, this rant may seem biased but I am aware of Suarez’s chequered past, especially with his eight game ban for biting PSV’s Otman Bakkal is probably right as far as suspensions go, but this is just too much. Since he has used “insulting” words, well that can’t be a stone wall rule because insult is based on the recipient’s perspective. Now you can feign being insulted by anything, no matetr how irrational it is, as soon as the race card is played, the politically correct brigade appear and throw their weight around. After a tiny bit of research, “Negrito” which is the masculine form of “Negrita” is actually a term to denote an indigenous Polynesian of small stature, or a “pygmy” to you and I, thus the inference of Suarez’s nickname towards Evra was more an amusing comment on his height, rather than his ethnicity. Again, this is mere ignorance on the part of Evra, who has completely misunderstood the banter from Suarez. I personally am only 5′ 7″, if Suarez called me a pygmy, it’d be quite funny! Then again I don’t have a chip on my shoulder like Patrice Evra does. Gustavo Poyet leapt to the defence of Suarez because he knew exactly that the FA are incapable of using the internet, let alone doing any research into what “negrita” actually means and due to the “NEGR-” prefix will automatically pan it for racism.

In accordance with the FA’s statement therefore under points 1 and 2, even if Evra did not fully understand the term, can you be insulted by it? Lets take that instance if Suarez, for example, said to him: “Thou art a pipe for Fortune’s finger to sound what stop she please” (which is a line from Hamlet), if Evra did not understand it (probably not because they don’t write Shakespeare in potato prints), would he feel justified in feeling insulted? No, that would be totally ridiculous. Thus not understanding the origins and completely misconstruing the sentiment qualify as abusive language? Of course it doesn’t, so why does it give enough creedence for the FA to slap a huge ban on Suarez.

But let look at the ban itself. It’s identical to Paolo Di Canio pushing the referee over (which in all honesty was very funny) or David Prutton man-handling the referee whilst verbally abusing the linesman. While we’re on the subject Wayne Rooney shouting “What? Fucking what?” into a LIVE SkySports camera only earned a three match ban yet I guarantee that that offended more people than just an overrated left back. Plus Rooney punted a player in an international match yet that ban was REDUCED. But he turned around and KICKED someone! The only on match ban I can think which was longer was Eric Cantona bullet kicking a Crystal Palace fan!

If it was as frequent as Evra claims, how was the ref unaware of such verbals?

It is glaringly obvious that this is the outcome of a Man United fuelled witch hunt, which has also sparked the whole “Suarez dives” bullshit, which is a little bit rich coming from a team which has had Cristiano Ronaldo, Dimitar Berbatov and Nani, who all go down more frequently than a parapalegic with spina bifida whenever someone is within four feet. Everyone has got on Suarez’s case ever since the match against Man United, which is glaringly obvious that they are trying to eliminate Liverpool’s biggest threat.

The FA’s stance here to stamp out racism has gone completely over the top and in a dire attempt to show assertiveness, have shown how grossly incompetent and inept their entire administration is. I’m curious to see how they handle the John Terry inquiry as I guarantee that despite having more evidence and corroborative accounts, they will not treat this the same way. Suarez’s words have been completely blown out of proportion and this is a worrying conclusion to an abysmally handled investigation. I am myself an ethnic minority and am fully aware of the implications of racial abuse and its ramifications and Suarez’s actions do not warrant anywhere near the punishment which has been so emphatically dished out.

But here’s the summary. In a court of law, one person of questionable integrity’s word alone is not enough to convict someone, let alone the diabolically harsh justice that has been administered here. The FA have really out done themselves again here by showing inconsistency and ineptitude when dealing with a straightforward matter. The FA had decided to pole axe Suarez even before Evra embellished to them, which makes me worry about the future of English football. Lack of evidence, maximum conviction. Total joke.
