Things that make you go 'hmm'

Interesting tidbit from the BBC soccer site.

The vice-president of the Ivory Coast Football Federation, Idriss Diallo, has told BBC Sport that he hopes racism will not be an issue when they play Spain in a friendly on Wednesday.


"Most of the Spanish people are more intelligent than those people involved in racism," he told the BBC.

Ironic coming from Côte d'Ivoire, a country where intolerance and xenophobia has become the governing ideology of the state.
