Although he tried to pull out at the last moment, the challenge on Suárez from Jason Denayer was not exactly subtle; the finish from Messi was, dinking in a gentle Panenka penalty to give Barcelona the lead.

14-Mar-2019

(Reuters) - Political grudges and racial animosity have divided students at U.S. high schools and President Donald Trump has exacerbated the problem with his rhetoric, a study released on Wednesday showed.

Those and other instances of racial hostility at high schools bear a resemblance to Trump’s rhetoric on immigration, the study said. To bolster their contention that some hostility at schools is due to Trump’s positions, the study points to a 17 percent rise in hate crimes across American society in 2017, the first year of Trump’s presidency.
