I'll always be black and proud: Wilfried Zaha

Ivory Coast and Crystal Palace Forward Wilfried Zaha received racial abuse during the game against Manchester City. He wrote a post on Instagram and said that he only wants those people to talk to him about this who are serious. He said he is done with all the disgust and sympathy and has understood that his skin color will always cause such issues. Zaha led his team to win against City when he nailed a goal at the sixth-minute mark as Crystal Palace took an upset victory.

I'm not here for all the nonsense that is being done instead of fixing the actual problem! This message isn't for me to get a million messages saying we stand with you and it's disgusting or about me getting sympathy. I don't mind abuse because nowadays it comes with doing the job I do even though it's not an excuse but my color will always be the real problem, it's fine because I'll always be BLACK AND PROUD! Speak to me when you actually take this issue serious. Growing up, my parents let me know I should be proud to be black. We should stand tall. With taking a knee, sometimes people forget we have to do it. It is becoming something we just do. That is not enough for me.
