17-Year-Old Ansu Fati Subjected To Disturbing Racism From Spain’s Third-Largest Newspaper

I don’t know if Spanish newspaper ABC is indeed as pathetically racist as it appears to be, but it’s hard to think otherwise after its recent game report of Barcelona’s Champions League win over Ferencváros on Tuesday. The author’s half-assed non-apology only heightens my suspicions.

Caden Clark scored the tying goal in the 77th minute and the visiting New York Red Bulls rallied for a 1-1 draw against league-leading Toronto FC Wednesday night at Rentschler Field in Hartford, Connecticut.
