someone says something smart about suarez; someone else says something dumb

Cultural differences is no defence for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, says PFA chief Gordon Taylor

Asked whether the PFA could do more to ensure foreign players are educated about what is deemed to be racist in Britain, Taylor argued it already does enough through highly visible and far-reaching campaigns such as Kick It Out and Show Racism the Red Card.

More damningly, Taylor questioned Suárez and Liverpool’s claim that the player did not understand that using the word “negro” in his verbal exchanges with Manchester United’s Patrice Evra was abusive as it is not deemed to be such in South America.
