Reaction: We are all monkeys

              Last month, we had a surprising news. In a European soccer game, an audience threw a banana at one of the player who is from South America, and the player protested against that by eating that banana. Actually, in soccer games in Europe, there sometimes occur such kind of racial discrimination. And now, many people all over the world are also protesting by posting pictures or videos of eating bananas on the Internet, including the 3D teacher in our university.

              I watched his video and rethought about racism. Every people is created equally, of course, and in terms of sports, we have to enjoy that without considering race. I think one of the important role of sports is to attract people and overcome the differences between nationality and race. I felt sad about this news but many people are taking actions, and I hope that people from all over the world can enjoy sports equally.
