    Not the first time he says some lame racial joke. He does act like an ass, maybe he doesn't realize what he says, why would anyone want to say things like that to half the world?

    I don't pay the mofo, so to say "you guys have" is a bit out of line, you should take this over to the conmebol forum there it will get a better reception......:rolleyes:

    Raul Orvañanos is doing his thing from Mexico where racism isn't allegedly such a big issue as it is in the US, to him it was just a joke, was it racist yes it was, but I have seen worst on Mexican(or shows produced in Mexico that air n the US) TV than that, write a letter to FOX maybe you can do all of us a favor and get those guys fired.

    I bet Argentine Futbol made that video. :D Seriously though like vasco said that "you guys" comment was out of line, as if "we" hired the guy. :rolleyes: Fox Sports is solely to blame for hiring that old drunk, now start a petition to fire the guy if you like. You won't find too many people on the Mexico forums that dislike Orvañanos more than myself, therefore I would like it very much if he was gone.​

    The guy is an idiot and he said a racist statement.

    However, be careful if you are trying to paint all Mexicans or the regulars of this forum with the same brush.

    I'm going to let this thread continue because I believe that racism should be exposed, however, keep in mind that I will not allow the members of this forum ...or your forum...or entire nations, to be called racist because of the actions or statements of some moron on TV or radio.

    It has nothing to do with protecting our own. Tell me he is throwing banana peels, imitating a monkey, or insinuating that he is the missing link between man and ape and I would agree with you 100%.

    But given the context, the racial climate in Mexico,it is hard to even insinuate that he is a racist toward blacks. Raul has also been very appreciative of the black players that have come to Mexico and produced, especially the ones that have suited up for Atlante, like Cabinho.

    Perhaps looking it from a US perspective, it may not be politically correct, but should the use of other phrases that may cause hurt be abolished as well. Moreno, negro, chato, gordo, flaco, dientes, pelon, etc are all commonly used nicknames/words that describe players.

    He's wet for Joffre Guerron. I doubt he's really racist.

    The guy who started the thread must think being dark is a bad thing.

    bingo.

    I hate Orvananos though, especially because of his "pro-mexico" stance in every game he narrates. It's pretty obnoxious.

    That's racist? Everybody over there must be quite sensitive about this, I just thought of it as a bad joke.

    Does it offend you that we call some of our darker skin players "negro" too?

    More ignorance than racism. I thought that was pretty funny though. The only bad thing I saw was how Argentine youth seem to have predisposed hate for Bolivians for no real valid reason. It's not like Bolivians come into their country for the sake of eating some babies or some shiiit like that

    Meh, thats just being the typical Mexican.. What would make it racist would be adding a negative word to what he had said.. However, I can see how in the US of A it can be viewed like that..

    If we're all racists cause of one man then all ecuatorianos make mamonas canciones to profit from other people's tragedies. Kind of strange that Delfin Quishpe get's no mention from El Ecuatoriano...
