Thats not really a fair comparison. At all. And people here would stop caring after one day if it happened. Nobody cared when the first black player played for the soccer National team.
What I really want to point is the contradictions. The contradiction of how people are constanty pointing out in one way or another the difference between races and its ok, but then some guy somewhere says the word nigger and the world goes up in arms.

An example would be when the Spanish team made a dumb photo with the oriental eyes (the idea was obviously to send the message "for a little while, we are all chinese for the olympics", bad idea thats true) and americans (nobody else) found it extremely offensive.
But then its completely fine to go "look an oriental guy that can play ball! thats something!".
