The role of immigrants and 'foreigners' has been a controversial subject in Europe, the United States and even in South Africa in recent times.
Many foreigners believe their rights should improve, and this is mostly a Human Rights issue across the world. Now, you see a famous African football player express his disappointed on being treated as a foreigner in the continent.
Here's what the former Orlando Pirates player, Issa Sarr had to say. What's even more interesting is the response from his fans, who are doing their best to support the player.
They have expressed how much they miss his services on the field.
Foreign” is an acceptable word when used to describe policies, but referring to a person as “foreign” or a “foreigner” leaves a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths. Think about it: would you like to be called foreign?— Issa Sarr🇸🇳 (@Noblesarr18) August 24, 2018
