Thank you! You're too kind.
I’m always amused when some (often conservative) white people say ‘we don’t even think about race/ethnicity/skin colour’.

Erm, it’s called ‘privilege’ for a reason!

You could have just tweeted ‘Schumer should step aside...’ and left it there.
Maybe Trump is soft on Russia because a la China he is making money off of them. Maybe it’s coz he likes/envies strongman Putin. Maybe it’s coz he did collude with them to win the election. Whatever it is, he is unusually soft on Putin/Russia & I’ve seen no good reason for it.

@KarenAttiah It’s not just about African angle though - Islamophobia is rife in France & this goes beyond anti-black racism. The fact that a proudly Muslim player scored Sunday matters a great deal to a lot of French Muslims who I know who face massive discrimination that goes beyond race.
