    FIFA must caution "racist" referees against African side @Sometimes you wonder why African teams are caught off side but the other way round by the whites are on side.Sometimes you wonder why 50:50 in tackles most of them are always foul against Africa but not foul against the whites. Sometimes you wonder why Ghana getting into the knock out stage one key player is sent off, for example Michael Essien in 2006 and Dede in 2010 World cups respectively.We are now in 21st Century and i hope things will improve.

    @ A concerned citizen, I totally agree with you, that's why I tweeted Fifa about that. Tweet Fifa and make anyone you know tweet or email Fifa about that. Please the Hashtag #BiasReferees. Tweet to @FIFAcom and FIFAWorldCup. Just write them that Sentence: FIFA please stop those #BiasReferees specially against African teams. Let's put pressure on them. While we're on twitter, Twitter has released a Hashtag to support all the countries. Please support Ghana by using #GHA. Go Black Stars Go!!!!!!!
