Uh... I played soccer 6 years. You don't need to question me on sports. But I know right from wrong, and while trash talking can occur and is almost expected, racism is not. From what little I know, admittedly, of the world cup, but learning about this whole thing Materazzi has a bad history himself.
And it isn't just France that is supporting him.
This has been discussed before I think you should scroll up some pages to refresh the discourse that has been going on here.
