West African Teen Taunted With Chants of ‘Ebola’ at High School Soccer Game →

ourafrica:

One Pennsylvania teen, who is originally from Guinea, recently had to endure his high school rival’s soccer team chanting “Ebola” at him during a match, WPVI reports.

According to the station, Ibrahim Toumkara, a Nazareth Area High School student and soccer player, got into a fight last week after he heard players from rival Northampton High School taunting him about the deadly virus, which has killed more than 4,000 people across West Africa, including in his home country.

"Being from western Africa and having family in that area, he didn’t take too kindly to those remarks and went after one of the players on the Northampton team," the boy’s coach, Edward Bachert, explained. Bachert is also Ibrahim’s legal guardian, as well as a police chief for Lehigh County. 

The 16-year-old moved away from Guinea three years ago, the station notes.

"There were tears coming down his eyes. He was visibly shaken by this, that it got to that level on the field," Bachert added.

Ibrahim’s parents are still in West Africa, and according to WPVI, he is constantly worrying for them.

After the tasteless incident, both Northampton’s head soccer coach and its assistant coach resigned. Some of the student athletes are also expected to face disciplinary action, according to the station.

"This is part of the educational process to make sure that students are understanding sportsmanship and what’s happening out there in the world," Northampton Area Superintendent Joseph Kovalchik said.

Since when is a deadly virus funny? When will African lives not be nothing but a comedic piece to westerners?

He admitted to it. On fucking camera. He and another boy recorded the rape and that of a 13-year-old girl.
Why aren’t they in prison for sexual exploitation of a minor and production/possession of child pornography?
Oh, right, because they’re popular football players and Matthew Barnett is related to a politician! Therefore, nothing they can do is wrong or bad and they should never face punishment and should instead be rewarded for raping young teenage girls and filming their assaults.

I just looked this up; it gets worse.

raise awareness to this shit and change something about it.

This pisses me off.

Not only were he, the other rapist, the person who recorded the video, and everyone who spread the video not punished in any way, but the fourteen year old victim was kicked off the cheerleading team, her mother was fired because her boss was somehow connected to the rapist’s family, and her family was harassed so much that they were driven out of town. And when they left town, the house they left behind was burned to the ground.
How fucking despicable can people be?

How the actual fucking fuck does the victim pay for the wrong doings of a criminal ?, PATHETIC ! ; I hate people.

Intimacy is not who you let touch your genitalia. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are.
