Sowetan insulted German footballer

I AM not a regular reader of Sowetan. Nevertheless my ties to your beautiful country (my son has been studying in South Africa for three years) are close enough to get to know that you published an article attributing German players to horror and racist terms out of the darkest period of my country. Comparing Bastien Schweinsteiger to Adolf Hitler is senseless (Let's Go! July 7).

I express my abhorrence for this inappropriate act, hoping you correct the impression your readers may have that Germany today is still in the dark age, indulged in racism and fascist fantasies.
