Solidaritätsbananen

Solidarity bananas.

For years, so probably decades, European soccer hooligans have been throwing bananas on the pitch as a racist insult, though sometimes they can make it clear the insult is nonracist yet still highly insulting.

Recently, a Brazilian player picked up one of these fallen bananas and calmly ate it. Now, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said, people are posting photos of themselves eating bananas as an anti-racist gesture. Italy’s new prime minister Matteo Renzi joined the meme, for example.

Achtung: this article contains photos of very good-looking men eating bananas.
