WE REQUEST A FORMAL APOLOGY AND PUNISHMENT IF IT IS REQUIRED FROM TRIPLE M TO MATT TILLEY AND JOE HILDEBRAND FOR THEIR RAICIST RAMPAGE AGAINST COLOMBIA AND COLOMBIAN PEOPLE.

In less than 8 minutes at 5pm on the 18/Jun/2014 2 Australian radio commentators have bullied Colombia and its entire people airing massive Racist comments during one of their live transmissions. It is clear there is a complete lack of understanding, of deep issues that hurt enormously a country like Colombia. Matt Tilley and Joe Hildebrand from Triple M went on making jokes about the drug trade which has seen a lot of deaths and devastation of the people of Colombia, diminished the fact that Colombia is one of the best producers of Coffee in the world and mentioned about the death of Andres Escobar, in a time where the country was swept by violence. Not only that they also appear to be making fun of Rene Higuita relating his famous hand stand saves to that of a donkey.

On the Drug trade side, they go on to affirm that EVERYBODY in Colombia, owns, sells and do Cocaine. Saying this is a public insult as that is not the truth and we do not want to be associated with it because of the devastation that this has brought to our country. No Matt Tilley and Joe Hildebrand ALL COLOMBIANS ARE NOT RELATED TO DRUGS saying this is insulting all Colombian people and those whose life has been devastated because of this.

Yes we do have a history, yes we do have a reputation but it is not something to be laughing at in public. It is a sad fact that we Colombians have to live with that reputation, but we will not be laughed at and we will not tolerate such racism let alone in public, without us making our voices heard. BECAUSE COLOMBIA AND ALL COLOMBIANS DESERVE RESPECT.

Please sign this petition to make our voice heard, share it with everyone you know will or has also been hurt by these comments:

“I think what we have got to remember is that they have a sort of ragged history, remember the guy that kicked an own goal for Colombia once and then was killed”

“Then they had Rene Higuita the goal keeper who famously could do a handstand and flip his legs up and save it that way. Hands? Too easy! Chimpanzees could do that, I’m going to do a donkey kick”

 “The Colombian team has been described as Colombian coffee growers” ” Is Colombia really famous for his coffee?” “Are you suggesting that there is another stimulant beginning with C that Colombia is more famous for than caffeine” “I just want to say this; it seems to me that if you mention Colombia the next thing that people generally mention is cocaine”

"Oohh the coca cola, white lady, snow”

“I mean everybody has it, is on it, sells it, I hear of people who go there backpacking and say it’s crazy, Oh yeah a bit of blow everybody has some, (Laugh)”

“Colombian people who go, well you know what we are a bit more than that we have gangs and we kill people too you know and coffee.”

“Sometimes after you’ve done a big night on the blow you need a cup of coffee to straighten yourself out”

“We are saying that Colombians love it”

PEDIMOS UNA DISCULPA FORMAL Y CASTIGO SI ES NECESARIO DE TRIPLE M PARA MATT TILLEY AND JOE HILDEBRAND POR SUS COMENTARIOS RACISTAS CONTRA COLOMBIA Y LA GENTE COLOMBIANA.

 

En menos de 8 minutos a las 5pm el 18/Jun/2014 2 comentadores de la radio Australiana se han burlado de Colombia y de toda su gente, diciendo al aire comentarios supremamente Racistas durante una de sus transmisiones en vivo. Es Claro que hay ignorancia por parte de los comentadores, de la dura problematica que hiere profundamente un pais como Colombia. Matt Tilley y Joe Hildebrand  pertenecientes a la cadena de radio “Triple M” hicieron chistes acerca del tema de las drogas, un problema que ha dejado devastado al país; no reconocieron el hecho de que Colombia es uno de los mejores productores de Café del mundo y mencionan la muerte de Andrés Escobar, y aparentemente se burlan de la tremenda tapada de Rene Higuita a tal punto de comparar su famosa jugada como hecha por un burro.

Igualmente se atreven a afirmar que todo el mundo en Colombia, posee, vende y hace uso de la Cocaína. Decir esto es un insulto público, debido a que no es verdad y los Colombianos no queremos ser asociados con la droga debido a la devastación que esta le ha traído al país. No Matt Tilley y Joe Hildebrand TODOS LOS COLOMBIANOS NO SE RELACIONAN CON LA DROGA  decir esto es insultar a toda una nación y un pueblo que ha sufrido de violencia por esta causa.

Si lamentablemente tenemos esa historia, y esa reputación, pero no es algo de lo que nos sintamos orgullosos y de lo que se pueda reír en público. Es muy triste que nosotros tengamos que vivir con esa reputación, pero no seremos burlados en público y no toleramos semejante desprestigio y racismo en contra de nuestro pueblo, sin que ustedes lo sepan. Porque COLOMBIA Y TODOS LOS COLOMBIANOS MERECEMOS RESPETO.

Por favor firma esta petición para hacer escuchar nuestra voz de rechazo, compártela con las personas que creas que han sido heridas por estos comentarios:

“Yo creo que lo que hay que recordar es que ellos tienen una historia como tormentosa, se acuerdan del jugador que hizo un autogol y después fue asesinado”

“Luego ellos tienen a Rene Higuita el arquero que famosamente se paró de manos lanzo sus piernas atrás y paro (el balón) así, Manos? muy fácil, los chimpancés podrían hacer eso, yo voy a hacer una patada de burro”

“Los equipos de Colombia han sido descritos como los Cafeteros” ”Sera que Colombia es realmente famosa por el café?”  “Estas sugiriendo que hay otro estimulante que empieza por C por el que Colombia es más famoso que la cafeína?”  “Yo solo quiero decir esto; me parece a mí que si uno menciona Colombia lo primero que la gente generalmente menciona es la Cocaína”.

"Oohh la coca cola, white lady, snow”

“Si es decir todo el mundo (en Colombia) la tiene, la consume y la vende. He oído de personas que viajan allá y que dicen que es muy loco, Oh si un poco de aspirada todo el mundo tiene algo, (risas)”

 “Los Colombianos dirán, Bueno no nosotros somos más que eso, tenemos pandilla y matamos gente también, y café”

 “Bueno algunas veces después de una larga noche aspirando se necesita de una tasa de café para reponerse”

“Estamos diciendo que todos los Colombianos la aman”
