Chelsea footballer and German international, Antonio Rudiger slams a French TV for a racist statement on black-skinned saying that “Africans are not lab rats”.
Europeans are planning on testing the new COVID-19 drugs on Africans and they announced it on a French TV which is not cool according to Antonio Rudiger.
The German international didn’t sound cool with the whole video talking about using patients in Africa to prove the efficacy of the experimental vaccine. Antonio Rudiger believes Africans are not lab rats and should never have been considered as one.
Italy, United States, Spain and other first world countries have all recorded coronavirus deaths in thousands each whereas the total deaths in Africa as a whole is not up to a thousand. It is only improper to experiment these vaccines on Africans considering the fact we are not the ones in desperate need of it.
Antonio Rudiger have experienced several racial abuse even in the field of play. He allegedly faced on recently in Chelsea’s match against Tottenham football club in december, 2019. Thus it only right for him to empathize with Africans over such racist statements by the French TV.
In his words,
“… a terrible statement against all the black-skinned … How was this even allowed to be broadcasted on French TV?? #AfricansAreNotLabRats“.
