Grace To Change A Heart

Dani Alves eats a banana after a Villareal fan threw it at him while he was trying to take a corner kick for Barcelona. Barack Obama gets called a ‘wicked black monkey’ by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un – the White House furiously called the comment ‘ugly and disrespectful’.

Have you ever been on the receiving end of a racist insult? How did you respond? Have you ever dished out a racist comment? What were you really trying to say?
