Vinicius was in almost all the media headlines after the Valladolid-Real Madrid match.
as an active subject.
The first in Google News: "Vinicius denounces", "Vinicius accuses", "Vinicius points out", "Vinicius charges", "Vinicius explodes".
As if it was his thing.
The reason, public and unquestionable, is that the black Real Madrid player once again suffered racist insults from opposing fans.
When leaving the field, Vinicus complained on Instagram that the racists were still in the stadiums and LaLiga continued without doing anything.
"In the end, it's my fault," he finished.
Not to blame, but the verbs in the headlines are his: it is not a way to blame him, but rather to create a favorable framework for him to be blamed.
Accuse, charge, explode.
There are many more slyly ignorant than racist arguments to accuse Vinicius of being insulted.
One of them is his attitude or his game, which apparently offends.
"Why don't Rudiger, Alaba or Mendy receive racist insults?" Many ask to justify their hatred of Vini.
Why was Cristiano Ronaldo, who aroused so much sympathy in the stadiums he went to, never called a "white shit"?
Why is it that when a black player from the English (or French, recently) team takes a penalty, is he exposed to twice the sentence than if a white player takes it if he misses it?
Why, when a racist comes across a black imbecile, the first thing he notices, to insult him, is not his imbecility, but the color of his skin?
A month ago there was shocking news in relation to Vinicius.
She was referring to the chants dedicated weeks before to the striker in Real's derby against Atlético, chants that led to a complaint (several hundred ultras Atlético chanting before the game "you're a monkey, Vinicius you're a monkey") from the Movement against the intolerance.
The Provincial Prosecutor's Office of Madrid filed that complaint.
As always, the interesting thing about the file was his argument.
The chants were "unpleasant", "inappropriate" and "disrespectful", but they occurred within the framework of a "highest rivalry" football game along with other "derogatory" or "mocking" allusions marked "by that sporting competition".
The chants were not produced again on more than two occasions (a medal?) "and they lasted a few seconds."
“Someone who murders spends two hours stabbing?
Or two minutes?" Esteban Ibarra, president of the Movement against Intolerance, Racism and Xenophobia, told Eleonora Giovio in this newspaper.
That the Prosecutor's Office includes racist chants with other "derogatory" or "mocking" allusions shows that there is still someone in there who has not learned anything.
That he doesn't know that the worst insult coming from the head of a verbiage fan has nothing to do with being called "monkey", among other reasons because the second would still be an insult and, the first, pure hate speech.
There was one more reason that the Prosecutor's Office put forward: indeed, the ultras sang "you are a monkey, Vinicius you are a monkey", but none of the people who chanted could be recognized, "since there were a considerable number of people gathered there."
That means that if a neo-Nazi ever wants to call a black man a monkey, he must gather two hundred to sing it at the same time.
For two reasons: to be sure that he has heard you,
and so that no one accuses him of anything.
And if they set the timer so as not to exceed the time stipulated by the Prosecutor's Office, even better.
