Patrice Evra panda

Racism in European soccer is a sad part of its fabric, and the players are doing whatever they can to help kick it out; at least, a lot more than FIFA and UEFA are doing. Juventus’ Patrice Evra has found a creative way to help fight racism:

He’s wearing a panda costume and dancing to Desiigner’s “Panda.” As he said, you can’t possibly be racist anymore when you watch Patrice Evra in a panda costume… dancing? Dabbing? Dancing and dabbing at the same time? Then he takes off the costume and says “Be like a panda. I am black, I am white, I am Asian and I am chubby. I am full of love. I love this game, say no to racism

Whatever it is, it’s a cool gesture for a good cause. Hopefully more players will take up the cause, in hopefully equally creative ways.
