Mesut Özil Quits German Team
The star of the German football team has resigned in protest over the racist treatment he has received following this year’s World Cup.
Following this year’s competition, Özil was the chosen scapegoat of the German people for their team’s defeat in this year’s World Cup.
“I am German when we win, but I am an immigrant when we lose.” — Özil
His resignation comes amidst international criticism directed towards France, whose primarily Muslim-immigrant team carried them to victory despite the harsh policies the French government has enacted against Muslims and immigrants.
