Red Card: Soccer and Racism (Tarjeta Roja)

This award-winning documentary about racism in Ecuador tells the story of Afro-Ecuadorian soccer player, Agustin "El Tin" Delgado. Arguably the best soccer player in the Ecuadorian national team, Delgado exposes the deep racial divide in this multiracial country and argues that Black Ecuadorians have been penalized both on the soccer field and in everyday life.

Reviews
"Recommended. Stories, incidents and language that demean Black and Indigenous people are an open part of Ecuadorian popular culture. Soccer player Agustín Delgado is the most visible Black Ecuadorian, but he is not naïve about the current racial divide in his country. Black Ecuadorians are putting their government and fellow citizens on notice that change is on the way."
- Educational Media Reviews Online (EMRO)

"Useful in courses on Latin American Studies, Sociology, or Anthropology."
- Jean Muteba Rahier, The Americas Journal
