I had intended to take a break from commentary on political and social issues and limit my self to the World Cup.  But this sort of racism is totally unacceptable.  Something must be done, especially in a country that deems itself "cosmopolitan" and a tourist destination.

I hasten to add that once when I filming was in Sudan on the banks of the Nile I saw some kids approaching gathering all sorts of plastic bags and rubbish.  I asked the old Sudanese man I was interviewing who the children were.  "Pay them no attention, they are Negroes," he said!
