On November 21st 2014, South African President Jacob Zuma Friday called for global efforts to end racism in sports. Racism in sports has never left the scene, multiple color barriers have been broken, but sports has a very long  way to go. Over the years the world has formed summits to come together and discuss the issue of racism in sports. At one of the summits president Zuma stated “The world cannot allow sports to be used to perpetuate ideas which divide humanity and limit the ability of people to work together for development regardless of race, skin colour, creed, religion, gender and sexual orientation,”. He goes on to explain the idea if the barrier of discrimination in sports can be ended it may not solve all world problems but be a focal point to better the world. Going on to say  “because what happens in sports is a true reflection in microcosm of what happens in society generally. It is against this background that sports people must not just defend their sports against racism but must skillfully use sports to actively participate in the struggle to eradicate racism in society as pursued by the entire progressive humanity”.  With this idea from President Zuma it gives the idea of growth and a beginning of equality not just in sports but possibly to the world.

in a Article i found it was a newspaper article pressed out in 1969 explaining because of apartheid Black south African soccer stars are pushed out of country and forced to play somewhere else. when interviewed the South African soccer stars desired to play for their home country but because of theses harsh laws from apartheid have made it impossible to do so. When asking the stars about playing they said it represents more than just the game to play for south Africa but a sign of strength and gratitude they have for their homeland. But because of Apartheid FIFA, has penalized their country for the wrongs and now they have to leave and find their chance somewhere else. This creating a decline in winnings and performing better at the world cup for south Africa. not just affecting their team but economy in less money being brought in from the team because of less support.

Without fifa getting involved would Apartheid still be going on in south africa?

Was South Africa’s punishment of not being able to play in national games because of Apartheid a fair consequence?
