‘We are probably the most evolved and human of most peoples/races. It’s our destiny to rule the Earth and everything above and beneath it. We can do something that must maintain our dominant hegemonic position, including acts of genocide. Afrikans are in the position they occupy (economically, educationally, militarily, healthwise etc.) due to their inferiority (genetic and cultural) and the benefits of European intervention in Afrika (despite any past wrongdoings) have outweighed any detriment caused.’
‘Europeans have proven themselves utterly ruthless, untrustworthy, imperialistic, racist and intent upon world domination. Since they’ll not and cannot accept the equitable sharing of the Earth’s resources consistent with the population sizes and needs of different sets of people on Earth they need to be confronted and defeated by us. History has taught us that we cannot rely upon any band of people to come to our aid.’
These very different psychological positions determine the collective or dominant, comparative; European and Afrikan responses to all aspects of people activity, including sport. Whereas Europeans have developed a whole lexicon of words and phrases which bring together the psychology of war/killing/violence and sport e.g. ‘killer instinct’, ‘finish them off’, ‘hammer blow’, ‘sucker punch’, ‘kill off the opposition/game’ to explain events, even yet in non-violent sports, Afrikans do only mimic this aggressive way of sport having no indigenous cultural reservoir of such extreme sporting hostility to tap into. One of the most famous quotes in British sport originated from Bill Shankley, a former manager of Liverpool football club. When asked about the significance of football, Shankley said,
Association Football is the most popular sport in the world. It is played in every country in the world and almost every country in the world includes a national team. Given this case; football generates a large number of domestic and international media coverage and success becomes the origin of a lot of national pride. It absolutely was even reported a ceasefire was called to the civil war in the Ivory Coast for the duration of this country’s participation in the 2006 World Cup. Team sports have emerged to represent a nation’s culture and character far significantly more than individual sport and therefore as the most popular sport on earth the way a national team plays football is presented as telling the viewer a great deal about who and what that nation is much like, their strengths and virtues, weaknesses and vices.
The media discussion around Tiger Woods epitomises this profound negative racial stereotyping of Afrikans. Tiger Woods’ ability to drive a soccer ball long distances has consistently been ascribed to his explosive attributes stemming from his Afrikan genetic ancestry inherited from his father. On the other hand his mental strength, ability to concentrate and perform under great pressure is just as invariably caused by his Oriental genetic ancestry inherited from his Thai mother. That is 1xbet зеркало рабочее the fact that his father has played the major role in developing his golfing talent and is on record as stating he used the psychological techniques he learned as a soldier in the US army to simply help develop his son’s mental strength.
When Portugal played Angola in the 2006 World Cup, great play was created of the fact that Portugal ruled Angola until 1975, however this was not presented in a negative light from either perspective and the commentators were quick to note how they had found sets of supporters from each country who mingled together and said that their nations were ‘brothers’ ;.Of course you can always find slave minded Afrikans if you try and it really shows you how your head may come to rationalise a violent relationship. This inferiority complex, which can be one of the real factors retarding the development of Afrikan football is manifested in how many high profile continental Afrikan footballers – particularly star players – sporting ghastly chemically straightened and/or dyed hair.
