Thierry Henry joins his voice to the protests of the sports world after the death of George Floyd, a dead black man smothered by a white policeman on May 25 in Minneapolis. The former 42-year-old French international, currently coaching the Montreal Impact in MLS, posted a message on Twitter on Wednesday.
“We urgently need change, we demand change and, most importantly, we deserve change” , writes (in English) the former Gunner. “Make it happen now”, urges the player born to a Guadeloupean father and a Martinican mother. ” Enough is enough. “
” This goes on for too long and this has gone too far “
” Why the same racists who applaud any ethnic minority who play for the team they support insult the same minorities once they are in the street? “, questions the top scorer of the France team (51 goals in 123 matches between 1997 to 2010). Another question asked by Thierry Henry: “Why don’t all the methods we use to eradicate (racism) from our society work?” It has been going on for too long and it goes too far for it to be tolerated in today’s society “, he concluded.
