Good morning I just want to say , I am not normally the person to talk a lot but when I think I need my point to heard I will speak up. Regarding what was said at the Chelsea game as you can see by my reaction I just had to laugh because I don’t expect no better. For example you have two young players starting out there careers both play for the same team, both have done the right thing. Which is buy a new house for there mothers who have put in a lot of time and love into helping them get where they are, but look how the news papers get there message across for the young black player and then for the young white payer. I think this in unacceptable both innocent have not done a thing wrong but just by the way it has been worded. This young black kid is looked at in a bad light. Which helps fuel racism an aggressive behaviour, so for all the news papers that don’t understand why people are racist in this day and age all i have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity an give all players an equal chance.

In addition, Raheem has been a victim of racism for quite a few time. After a Premier League match against Chelsea, during which he stated that he was racially abused by a nearby fan. Sterling took the help of Instagram to express his concern about the vastly different treatment received by black players from certain sections of the media.

The 23-year- old forward posted a picture of himself training with his England teammates ahead of the 2018 World Cup with a clearly visible tattoo of an assault rifle on his right calf which was a matter of concern for anti-gun campaigners.

"When I was 2 my father died from being gunned down to death I made a promise to myself I would never touch a gun in my lifetime, I shoot with my right foot so it has a deeper meaning and still unfinished."
