The black race, has, before antiquity was born, cried foul for being suppressed, oppressed, persecuted, abused, and generally considered inferior by largely, the white race.
Racism – the prejudice that members of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races, is a global pernicious and malign influence that is hard to get rid of, yet, must be condemned when exhibited by either race – whites or blacks.
Christian Atsu, the Black Stars player who currently plays for New Castle is married to a German, Marie-Claire Rupio and the couple seems to have defied all odds of racism to be together.
Having been together for the past 5 years, they have two very young sons who are the light of the family. The footballer, last week, wished his lovely wife a happy birthday – posted:
“I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful and supportive life partner like you.Thank you for coming into my life, Every year with you is better than the last. Happy birthday to you my love”
Unfortunately, his post was met with some uncouth remarks and a raw display of racism against Atsu’s wife.
