I have just read a yahoo article on the ‘diski’ – the goal celebration dance craze in South Africa. The article itself was innocuous enough and the little video to show the dance moves was cute. However, the comments that followed the piece were quite distressing. Spammers popped up all over the place, followed by racists and bigots who were counter-commented. There were very few genuine comments about the article itself. It is a sad world when a piece about a celebratory dance, something depicting joy, is used as a forum for negative comments to incite hatred.
I hope the rest of the World Cup progresses with a better sporting spirit.
