« It’s racist to turn a blind eye to other conflicts », deplores Bellerín

Spaniard Héctor Bellerín regrets that reactions to the war in Ukraine are stronger than those to other conflicts such as Yemen and Palestine. The right side of Betis Sevilla even finds it « racist » to turn a blind eye to other conflicts.

Author of a « F**k Boris » (Johnson) in 2019 before the legislative elections, shareholder of Forest Green Rovers (English D4), « the greenest club in the world », Héctor Bellerín does not hesitate to defend his ideas out of the field. Once again, the side of Betis Seville did not mince words, this time to denounce blinders on the war in Ukraine, while conflicts elsewhere in the world take away so many lives.

« It’s complicated to see that we are more interested in this war [en Ukraine] that others. I don’t know if it’s because they are more like us or because the conflict can affect us more economically or about refugees, » the 27-year-old Spaniard asked in an interview broadcast on « La Media Ingles ». .

The exclusion of Russia from the World Cup? « Other countries have done the same! »

He also called for comparison with other conflicts that have less media coverage: « The war in Palestine was completely ignored, no one talked about it. In Yemen, in Iraq too. Russia was excluded of the World Cup… Other countries have done the same [que la Russie] for many, many years. »

« It is racist to have turned a blind eye to other conflicts and now to have this positioning. It also reflects a lack of empathy for the number of lives lost in many conflicts without the same importance. be loaned », concluded Héctor Bellerín, who had already published a tweet evoking the same critical speech, Saturday on Twitter and Instagram.
