Discrimination against Latino players in football isn’t as obvious as it is when you look at black players who get racially abused on the daily, people yelling slurs at them or leaving racist comments on their instagrams and such but I feel like it takes place in different ways. One of which is fetishization among fans.

People will take Latino players and call them spicy, exotic, give them chitzy little nicknames like “my spicy latin lover,” “my little chili pepper,” and such, making little jokes about their names like when people call James Rodriguez “Hummus,” or leave dumb tags on their pictures like “haha yes papi hablame in spanish ;)” It’s usually the ones who look more “acceptable” or white, or have something that makes them more “desirable.” For example, people will squirt over Dani Alves

but will call Diego a monkey, an ogre, make all kinds of jokes about how ugly he is. But

They look dead ass exactly the same?? The main difference is that Alves has those ~exotic~ light colored eyes and appeals to people’s fantasy of what they want their sexii papi to look like. The argument that Diego “plays dirty” also goes out of the window when you consider all the dumb shit Alves does, thinking back to Barca vs Arsenal when he started some shit and then lied and said that Mesut taunted him with 7-1 jokes when he very obviously didn’t. There was very little backlash besides from Arsenal fans, there was 0 things about it in the media calling Alves a liar. If Diego did something like that, everyone who’s ever watched football would have had a riot and called him a piece of shit. They have extremely similar personalities as well, on and off the pitch. If anything I would argue Diego is more shy and humble off the pitch than Alves and they both play like cunts. It’s wild to me that people can be that fixated on how “”exotic”” dani looks that they’ll lose their shit over it yet shit on his (more or less) twin.

It’s not just Alves though, another popular one in the fetishization side of the community is Neymar. People will make dozens of posts about how sexy and funny he is but whenever he fucks anything up (which is semi-frequently, mind you) the same people who were calling him “”””caliente”” will turn around and shit on him and completely abandon him. Specifically mention last year’s Copa America and this past season when he had the incident throwing shit at other players and insulting them. Is he immature? Yes but the fact that the people who will defend ugly white player’s bad behavior up and down but then turn on Neymar for doing dumb shit thats in some cases less severe than said ugly white players just proves the point that y’all only like him because he’s your Free Pass, your “I have a X friend so I’m not racist” trump card so you don’t look bigoted. You can talk all about how sexy you think Kun Aguero is but the second you turn around and say Carlos Tevez looks like a serial killer you lose that cover you’re trying to build for yourself.

I don’t like Neymar and I’m not defending his behavior but if he’s your “fav”” you cant just turn around and shit on him for being a cunt and then in that same breath turn around and defend other players with shitty attitudes. More examples of such are the people who will take anything Diego says and does and use it to further their hate campaign against him and then turn around and crawl 10 feet up Zlatan’s ass. Does Diego have a bad attitude on the pitch? Yeah. But so does Zlatan and you’re 10x more likely to see people hate on Diego than him, even though Zlatan is arguably more of a cunt than Diego because of his stank attitude off the pitch.

Aside from that, Latino players are more often condemned for their playing styles than various European players. An example of such is the stereotypical Brazilian playing style that Neymar’s been condemned for for years since he moved to Spain, and more recently Arjen Robben flapping those papercut lips to the media about how he disapproved of Douglas Costa’s rainbow flick during that one Bayern match, talking about how it was unnecessary and wasting time/giving away possession while simultaneously trying to erase Douglas’ identity as a player and where he came from because he doesn’t like how “flashy” it is. People will watch Copa America or Copa Libertadores and complain up and down about how “rough” Latino teams are, getting and spreading this idea that it’s just one big fist fight and they’re all violent and have “fiery” attitudes.

The racism and discrimination against Latino players may not be as obvious and straight forward as racial slurs on social media and different players calling each other names (although it DOES happen) but the microaggressions they do face aren’t any less valid or prevalent. This goes back to the age old argument of POC getting harsher treatment from the media than white players and it’s still true. It’s no secret that Diego’s been the long standing scapegoat and person of interest in English media and the garbage they constantly spew about him only furthers harmful stereotypes and fuels racist comments and ideologies, not just against him but against other Latino players as well. 

Anyway this was kind of all over the place and it kept coming back to diego but what I was trying to say is that Latino players face a lot of unnoticed microaggressions and criticisms and it’s not fair to them, they’re people; they’re not animals, they’re not some zesty dish you can use to spice up your bland ass mayo nut platter. They’re PEOPLE and should be respected and treated as such. They’re not here for you to sexualize, berate, use for smear campaigns or otherwise dehumanize.
