«I volunteered to help them, since they had absolutely nothing they slept on cartoons. I’m not here to fight a moral, social, race or color war. I have sent the money necessary so that we have a roof under which to sleep, to eat and clean clothes». The former Lazio striker Keita Balde, born in Catalonia but of Senegalese origins (in fact he plays in the national team of the African country), announces on Instagram that he has won his personal battle against racism and prejudices, and that he has found a roof for the 200 Senegalese laborers to whom LeridaIn Spain, several hotels had said no to refusing to host them despite the former biancoceleste offering to pay all the expenses.
Now, however, for 90 of these seasonal workers, 25-year-old Keita Balde says, a solution has been found. In recent days, after various structures had refused black workers, the footballer had vented via social media explaining that he was struggling “to provide a roof for those who do not have it.” We are in an unpleasant and ugly system, in which renting a house or something else causes problems for the color of the skin or for being from another country. I will not give up and keep my promise no matter what it costs! I ask you for a little patience and strength. ”
«We offered to pay in advance accommodation for 4 months – he explained – but most hostels, hotels and hotels have refused because of the origin of the people. It is a clear case of racism. ” But now Keita Balde, currently in Monaco, has made it, and her compatriots will have a roof.
