Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier pens his thoughts on the role open conversation plays in the fight against discrimination

According to the official website of the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur star Eric Dier has made his thoughts on the fight against discrimination clear for one and all to see.

Discrimination has become a real problem both on and off the field. Despite numerous initiatives taken to combat it, the unsavoury incidents continue to pop up both on and off the field.

The Spurs ace believes a simple chat can at times work wonders. It is never easy to know what demons someone might be fighting but having a conversation could pave the way for that battle to become a little easier.

“Just being there to have a conversation with someone can be enough to help them in many different situations.”

Dier goes on to add those conversations with people who are different to one or have a different thought process to one can inculcate an exchange of ideas. This will give the ones involved a better education to the different lives that people may lead.

“Educate yourself; be open to listening to people and how they feel about something, and how that might make them feel.”

From his vocal comments, it is clear that Dier certainly takes his responsibility as a player highly. Hopefully, all will follow in his stead and behind the fight against discrimination, one bias at a time.

Teach them young

Dier also goes on to add that education against such behaviour should be inculcated in people at a young age. A child without inhibitions against different cultures or people is more likely to grow into a global citizen welcoming of all around him.

“We really have to focus on the younger generation and educating them in the right way from a young age so they have a clear understanding of what’s right and what’s wrong.”

Dier’s comments came ahead of his side’s match with Newcastle United. It is the first of two weekends dedicated to the Premier League’s ongoing No Room For Racism initiative.

The aim is to highlight the league’s long term commitment to addressing racism not just in football but society as a whole. The same is extended to any sort of discriminatory behaviour that can occur.
