” Football players need to think about playing not bowing to this truly racist propaganda they call ‘Black Lives Matter’. They should call it ‘human Lives Matter’. We live in a ‘democracy’ ”. This is what the singer Giuseppe Povia says to Adnkronos when commenting on the choice of the Azzurri to kneel before the match against Belgium at the European Football Championships. ” Human lives all count, there is no real official count of deaths at the hands of the police but for example in 2019 – he says, citing data from the ‘Washington post’ – at the hands of US law enforcement agencies there were 654 deaths: 405 white, 249 black. Racism must not be selective – Povia continues – I think of Daniel Shaver, 26, killed while he was crying. He hadn’t done anything. The policeman was acquitted and nobody moved. We live in a tontocratic system. I am neutral – concludes ironic – I am for Switzerland ”.
