Feeling down about the economy? Upset that American seems to be slipping through the cracks? Well, now you can feel comfortable knowing that other civilized nations are equally racist: According to THE SUN (via the English soccer blog THE SPOILER), Everton star Victor Anichebe was the victim of outright racial profiling up the trendy English hamlet of Chesire at a high-end jewelry store, where police accused him of planning to rob it when he was just staring at a display case.
(Does this man look like the kind of guy who would steal a Rolex?)
In fact, this is worst than just a simple profiling case, it looks more like British cops preying on a weakened victim. The 20-year-old Anichebe was hobbling on crutches after suffering a career-ending knee injury in recent weeks, and police still thought he was “casing out” the store for a future robbery.
