What They're Saying: Rhian Brewster

"I love the game. I’m never going to stop loving it. It’s just disappointing to know it’s still in the game. If it wasn’t in the game, it would be so much better. You wouldn’t have to worry about playing abroad, worrying about what the fans are going to say, or what another player is going to say. I wouldn’t have to worry that if I score they are going to call me all types of names.”

-- Liverpool's 17-year-old star Rhian Brewster, who won the Golden Boot at the Under-17 World Cup in India for scoring eight goals, on repeatedly being the target of racial abuse, even in the U-17 World Cup final against Spain, since the age of 12. (Guardian)

    All of us must be vigilant in denouncing and interrupting and quashing such behavior. Oh that we could change hearts and minds. Sport does play a major role in breaking through racial barriers, reducing racial ignorance and bringing people together.
