Quote: he referred to Hamilton as "neguinho," (a Brazilian Portuguese word that literally translates to English as "little black"). Southwell's own discussions with other Brazilians revealed that while the exact intent of translation may differ amongst people, "all of them agreed it was racist and intended to be that way."

These insecure racists, sorry meant to say people, just wish they'd take their insecurities and jealousies elsewhere, out of sports preferably

What is this racism they are mentioning in the article?

I understand it was a Portuguese word, and there is some debate over whether it is racist or not. Its literal translation into English may appear racist, but I've read it's used widely in Brazil to refer to all kinds of people. Are there any Brazilians around that can clarify?

What is this racism they are mentioning in the article?

Are you serious? It is mentioned in the 2nd paragraph, and in today's world it's not all that hard to take a stab at just what "racial term" he was called.

Dont be so naïve!
