“Let them try to do it in Russia” – Sport – Kommersant

Former Formula 1 promoter and actually the creator of the world’s most prestigious racing series in its current form, Bernie Ecclestone has responded to allegations of racism that fell upon him after saying that “many blacks are more racist than white.” According to Mr. Ecclestone, it is not his fault that he is white, or that he did not come out tall. “I realized that I had to put up with this. And Black should take care of himself, ”said Bernie Ecclestone, noting that he was not afraid of threats to deprive him of access to the race. “Let them try to do it in Russia. I’ll somehow get a pass, ”he said.

Bernie Ecclestone’s statement that “many blacks are more racist than they were before” provoked the expected sharp reaction in Formula 1. So, six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton called the position of Ecclestone “sad and disappointing.” “Bernie left our sport, and he is from another generation. But it is precisely such ignorant comments that show how far we are from making real equality possible. Now I understand completely why nothing has been done and said in our sport so that it becomes more diverse, and in order to respond to the racial harassment that I have encountered throughout my career, ”said Hamilton.

In turn, the current head of “Formula 1” Chase Kerry hastened to disown Bernie Ecclestone, calling his position unacceptable and saying that the status of honorary chairman of “Formula 1”, which Ecclestone received after the control over the series passed American Liberty Media , “Expired in June.” Also, the leadership of Formula 1 discusses the possibility of denying Ecclestone the right to attend races.

“Prohibit me from appearing on races? “I would not advise doing this,” Bernie Ecclestone told the Daily Mail. “They can try, for example, in Russia.” I think I’ll get a pass. ”

Bernie Ecclestone spoke more than once flattering about Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whose assistance it became possible to host the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi.

We also note that Ecclestone still has good relations with team leaders and national stage organizers. That is, in fact, excommunication from his presence at the race is really not easy.

Bernie Ecclestone also touched on his relationship with Chase Kerry and his words that he is no longer the honorary chairman of Formula 1. “When Chase asked me to resign, he talked a lot about how important my title was. He said that in the USA people are ready to kill for such a thing. But that doesn’t matter to me, ”said Bernie Ecclestone.“ I got my doctorate from Imperial College London 20 years ago. But I do not introduce myself as Dr. Ecclestone. And I’m glad that I have no relation to the management of Formula 1. After all, now I can’t be blamed for everything that they did. They raised this topic with racism because of what is happening in America. But maybe Chase will do something that could please the shareholders? COVID is luck for him. All failures can be blamed on a pandemic. ”

As for the allegations of racism, they are sure, Bernie Ecclestone, unfounded.

“I am not against blacks. On the contrary. I always helped them. In my life I have met many whites that I did not like, but not a single black. I was robbed a couple of times. Once they were three black guys. I got to the hospital then. But even after that, he never opposed black. Yes, and I do not perceive Hamilton as black or something else. He’s just Lewis, ”said Bernie Ecclestone. However, he believes that “if a person was refused work, then you must first find out why,” and not go straight to the marches, which, in his opinion, are now “quasi-Marxists”. “If you ask them what exactly they need, they won’t say it,” says Ecclestone.

“It’s not my fault that I’m white,” continued Bernie Ecclestone. “As well as the fact that he did not come out tall. At school they called me shorty. But then I realized that I had to deal with it. So Black should take care of himself. ”

Charles Ehlinger, great figure of the Catholic edition, carried away by the Covid-19

Charles Ehlinger died on Saturday, May 2, at the age of 92, of the coronavirus that affected him after his general health had deteriorated significantly since last winter. Assumptionist for nearly forty years, he was a remarkable publisher in the religious field. He is notably responsible for many works by the Jesuit François Varillon.

Born September 15, 1927 in Urbès (Haut-Rhin), he made his first profession with the Augustinians of the Assumption in 1946 and made his final vows in Lyon on November 21, 1950. Ordained priest in Lyon in 1954 after studying philosophy and a bachelor’s degree in theology and scripture, he was responsible from 1959 to 1964 for the year of pastoral training for young priests of several religious institutes and dioceses.

An engaging and influential man

Gifted with a keen sense of discernment, he leaves fond memories for those who approached him. The intellectual curiosity of this hard worker made him a reference. Charles left behind a beautiful and noble life, even if it was not always easy. The concern for truth which always animated him pushed him to courageous decisions, says Father Michel Kubler, assumptionist, former religious editor of The cross. He wielded – without really realizing it – an important influence on many people and a kind of magisterium in the world of religious publishing in his time.

Same emotion for Marc Leboucher, editor at Salvator who was previously responsible for DDB editions: He was a very big publisher, a true birth attendant. Her natural discretion went well with the backstage position inherent in this profession. It was a sharp mind, always kind, but never complacent at work.

A committed publisher

Director from 1964 to 1983 of the Centurion editions which then formed part of the Bayard group (publisher of The cross), Charles Ehlinger put together an impressive catalog of notable books and important authors. He translated the very controversial Dutch catechism (1968), launched the pastoral translation of the Bible in 4 volumes, The Bible of the People of God (1971), as well as the publication of the Acts of the Council with 200 pages of analytical table, thus constituting a first synthesis of Vatican II.

A man of encounter and dialogue, he created a collection of interview books with religious or lay people such as the Dominican cardinal Yves Congar, cardinal François Marty, cardinal Etchegaray, but also Alfred Grosser … and Georges Brassens! The author of major interviews himself, he was also a scrupulous translator of works of theology and exegesis in German or English.

He has mainly published successful works that have nourished the spiritual life of thousands of readers, with authors such as François Varillon (The humility of God, then The Suffering of God ; Joy of believing, joy of living; Beauty of the world, suffering of men…), the assumptionist André Sève (30 minutes for God, 1974, Try to love, 1976) or Pierre Talec (Things of faith, 1973).

Crossing the trials

In 1984, after a painful and old reflection on his faith, and after two years on leave from the congregation, Charles Ehlinger renounced “for reasons of conscience” his ministry and religious life without breaking the constant ties with the Church and with the Assumption. He then joined the Desclée De Brouwer (DDB) editions as editor and collection director, until his retirement at the very beginning of the 1990s. Finally in 2005, Charles Ehlinger, published with Michel Kubler, a last book of interviews produced with Mgr Joseph Doré under the title The Grace of Living (Bayard).

After a few years of solitude in the Paris region, he had moved closer to his family in Alsace and settled in Thann (Haut-Rhin). In December 2019, he had to leave his apartment and the thousand pounds he had left to be hospitalized in Oderen, before joining the Ehderen d’Oderen from where he was again hospitalized in intensive care for the last three weeks in Thann.

As a result of the economic crisis associated with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic, the middle class could slide into poverty. This was in an interview with RBC, the rector of the Higher School of Economics Yaroslav Kuzminov.

“Most likely, incomes will fall among all sectors of society, but if the impoverished rich will still remain rich people, and the poor will still be poor, then for the middle class, which is now taking the brunt of it, there are serious risks of falling into poverty,” – said Kuzminov.

He noted that this trend concerns primarily the economy of services, including intellectual, and the economy of impressions, which provided space for the development of new creative projects.
