    Malema was right, say some after Indian woman’s racist airline incident

    Malema has caused huge controversy with his comments at a rally accusing Indian and coloured people of being racist. “The majority of Indians are racists - they see themselves better than most of us. Even coloureds see themselves [as] better than blacks,” Malema said while speaking to a crowd of supporters at a rally held on Youth Day in the North West city of Klerksdorp. Some feel Malema’s assertion that most Indian people are racist and that many coloured people are too, itself constitutes racism.

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte could be sacked and replaced by Maurizio Sarri

    Antonio Conte is to be sacked as Chelsea manager within days and former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri installed as his replacement according to British media reports on Thursday. Conte is presently on holiday but is to be told he is no longer needed despite winning the FA Cup last season -- to add to the league title he won in his first season in charge -- and issuing a defiant message afterwards of how he wouldn't change his style of management. Both men will cost Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. Conte will be due £9million ($11.8million) if he doesn't take another job in the next year and Napoli will be due a payment for Sarri as he is still under contract with them, even though Carlo Ancelotti -- who knows how swiftly Abramovich forgets past glories as he was sacked a season after guiding them to the domestic double -- has replaced him.
