Papiss Cisse & Girlfriend Subjected To Racist Abuse
Papiss Cisse and his girlfriend, Rachelle Graham, have been targeted with racist abuse.
The charming website chimpmania.com, which is anti mixed race relationships, has called Cisse’s girlfriend a ‘despicable race traitor’.
Graham’s mother told her about the website and Rachelle told Sky Tyne and Wear;
Some of it’s really threatening, I don’t understand why people would say these things, especially as Papiss is such a nice guy.
I guess we just have to ignore it and move on.”
The website appears to originate in America but you would assume that whoever has posted the comments about Papiss Cisse and his girlfriend is likely to be more ‘local’.
Unfortunately, there will always be a sad minority of people who have nothing better to do with their time than spread hate but the best answer is for the likes of Papiss Cisse to keep on banging in those last minute goals and for everybody to help support great organisations like Show Racism The Red Card.
