Amid the whole Black Lives Matter campaign of the last few weeks, where people worldwide have taken to streets rightfully calling for an end to racial inequality and injustice, I look at issues on our continent – Africa – in a slightly different perspective.

Looking at the wide disparity in the treatment of black people in ‘foreign lands’ takes us back to how we see our fellow black people (especially in Africa) on home turf.

As usual, my world is football, and I cast an eye on what football can do more of, to change the trend and explore a way out of this.

Every little does help…..and as the saying goes, charity begins at home.
