What Vinicius said 

In an interview with France Football, the Real Madrid winger stated that he is looking to make a difference in the fight against racism. 

He, however, conceded that he has no power to change the history of racism but says he wants to change the future. 

“I know I won’t change history. I know I can’t make Spain, or the rest of the world, a place without racists, but I know I can change the future so that those who succeed me don’t experience that. For them, I will do what I can,” he said, per GFFN.
