FOOTBLL: Why Don’t Argentina Have Any Black Players? – Video

Whilst neighbouring Uruguay and Brazil have had plenty of black footballers, including their greatest players of all time in the forms of Pele and Jose Andrade, the same cannot be said for Argentina. Despite sharing a similar colonial past to their near neighbours, Argentina’s black population is a fraction of the nation’s around them, and following a question from a subscriber during the 2018 World Cup, HITC Sevens takes a look at why that is the case.

    It’s hard to believe that there are no Black soccer players representing Argentina and that the last time a Black player represented this country was almost 100 years ago.

    It’s also incredible that 97% of Argentina’s population is White, making it one of the Whitest nations on Earth.

    AND???

    Simple answer to your question… Argentina is very racial and prejudice towards Black people. They would be very happy if they could eliminate all Blacks from their country.
    Black people all over the world are being suppressed and unfairly treated. 🥲
    May Go have mercy on us!🙏🏾

      So it is true that the Nazis fled to Argentina and brought their white supremacy on the continent.

        Yes, thousands of SS officers and other Hitler collaborators fled to South America after the war.

        The bulk of them settled in Argentina. Others found refuge in Brazil and Chile and smaller numbers to Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

        Argentina is home to huge numbers if Germans and citizens from a number of European countries.

        Most of the Nazi criminals used forged International Red Cross passports to board steam ships to South America through ports in France and Spain.

        Only a handful were ever caught and extradited to face trial. The vast majority escaped justice.

    Big Professional sport tends to be blind when it comes to talent, play for the team, never invited to the BBQ How do you explain, racist to black, not to brown. How could the Government enforce any Legislation against black people, today, with out reaction from outside.
    Shows how little I know/care about our South American “cousins”
