Luis Suarez:: is not racist ( The FA )
If Suarez is not racist then what is he ? and why do you the press keep on calling him racist. It strikes me that Ferguson is the one that really wanted to press this home because none of the incidents where reported during the game and it was not until Ferguson found out that he took him to the referees room to make a complaint. For once it seems that the Sepp Blatter was right and thy should have shaken hands on the pitch and call the matter closed.The whole thing has been taken out of context by the press and the media that where baying for blood like a pack of wolves or jumping on the racist bandwagon even though Luis told the truth and gets punished,where as Evra was the one that started the trouble with offensive remakes about his sister and gets of scot free even thou he was the first throw the first abuse as for the Independent panel that was a joke. Racism is a crime in this country so why have the police shown no interest because it would be thrown out off court for lack of evidence. It also shows kids that you are better of telling a pack of lies or just say nothing The punishment was already decided by the press and the media not the panel but the press and the FA. Patrice Evra should not be surprised that he would make a retort back in the heat of the moment the word used is reported to be Negro which in many parts of the world is not deemed to be offensive especially the country's they both come from some of his own team mates call him by the same name,all so his wife if that is the case thy should be ashamed of themselves for not speaking up and for letting things go this far. Look at Luis Suarez: South Africa documentary (2010) on you tube where he is helping young black “Negro” Kids and not just foot ball advises them about the importance of a good general education then tell me he is a racist. This episode has only made the race problem even wears as as it only got people that where already racist to do some thing about it because of a black person getting one over some one that is not black. I thought this country was proud to fight for what they thought was right there have been a lot of sent to jail on a pack of lies that have latter been found innocent after justice was fought for

The  word Negro is used in the English-speaking world to refer to a person of black ancestry or 
appearance, whether of African descent or not. The word Negro means 'black' in Spanish and 
Portuguese, from the Latin Niger, 'black', probably from a Proto-Indo-European root *nek^-, 'to be 
dark", akin to *«or- 'night'.f'lf^l 

The usage was accepted as normal, even by people classified as Negroes, until the later Civil Rights 
movement in the late 1960s. One well-known example is the identification by Martin Luther King, 
Jr. of his ovm race as 'Negro' in his famous 1963 speech I Have a Dream. 

During the American Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, some African-America
leaders in the United States, notably Malcolm X, objected to the word, preferring Black P^ because 
they associated the word Negro with the long history of slavery, segregation, and discrimination that 
treated African Americans as second class citizens, or worse. 

The term "Negro" is still used in some historical contexts, such as in the name of the United Negro 
College Fund^'*^^^^ and the Negro league in sports. 

"Negro" superseded "coloured" as the most polite terminology, at a time when "black" was more 

Since the late 1960s, various other roughly similar terms have been in popular usage. The latter 
seclude Black, Black African, Afro-American (in use from the late 1960s to 1990) and African 
American (used in the United States to refer to Black Americans, peoples often referred to in the past 
as American Negroes). 

The United States Census Bureau announced that "Negro" would be included on the 2010 United 
States Census, alongside "Black" and "African-American" because some older Black Americans 
nevertheless self-identify with the term.^^^f^^f'^^

Around 1442 the Portuguese first arrived in sub-Saharan Africa while trying to find a sea route to 
India. The term Negro, literally meaning "black", was used by the Spanish and Portuguese as a 
simple description to refer to people. From the 18th century to the late 1960s, "Negro" (later 
capitalized) was considered to be the proper English-language term for certain people of sub-Saharan 
African origin. 22/12/201
