Argument: Vuvuzela ban would impose Western values on World Cup

Issue Report: Banning vuvuzela horns at the 2010 World Cup


Ryan Bailey. “Vuvuzelas might yet be banned from World Cup.” Yahoo Sports. June 13th, 2010: “we should not impose Western values on South Africa. A ban would rob the tournament of part of its cultural identity, leaving thousands of locals perplexed: could you imagine being told by an international body that you could no longer drink beer at American football games, or fall asleep during baseball? The South Africans wouldn’t take too kindly to having a national institution removed.”
