ok im from South Africa( currently living in Canada), and i can honestly say im not surprised by the supposed meaning behind the logo. The whites in South Africa right now are danger, as soon as Mandela dies the Cafers will go on a rampage!!

One of the operations planned entails 70,000 armed black men "being transported to the Johannesburg city center within an hour" in taxicabs to attack whites.

The plans are variously dubbed "Operation Vula," "Night of the Long Knives," "Operation White Clean-up," "Operation Iron Eagle" and "Red October campaign."

Operation "Our Rainy Day" was to be carried out after the death of Nelson Mandela and would have entailed blacks being transported to the largest cities in taxis.

go on Youtube and search "kill the boer" blacks singing about killing the whites

Ok, I think this is bleeping silly, the guy is obviously trying to kick that soccer ball, if you were to look at the reach of his kick, he wouldn't even be able to touch that eagle. So what the hell are you all tripping out about? And if this was all true, why does it come as such a surprise that black people hate crackers? I don't know, slavery? Or just plain ignorance of an entire culture and race? This poo is ridiculous, am I the only one that sees that?

Holy crap! The "black" man is representing [/i]all[i] humans. It's a silhouette/a shadow, merely implying that all people are equal- ergo; as they all cast a shadow.

The "eagle" as everyone is calling it. Is in fact this years incredibly [/i]modern[i] logo for the world cup. It show a man/woman (human) holding up the world. [I am talking about the picture within the blue ball]. I know this for a fact seeing as I'm studying advertisements in my Photography AND Art classes. This image has come up more than once- and we've discussed the logo.

It isn't some "hidden racial message". It's a completely innocent logo that people have analysed far, far too much.

If, in fact, I'm wrong- and it is a racial message. Don't you think other authorities would have picked up on it by now, and have tried to change it? I mean, it has been all over the internet for a while now,

Are you trying to tell me that 12-16 years of international football has some racist message about whites in their logos?  Is the white guy greedy and covered with gold in 2002?  Is everyone laughing at the white guy in 2006? Is he being carried away by a giant bird, never to be seen again, in the future 2014 tournament?  White guys just can't catch a break in football!

Are you talking about the logo, on the top right hand side, if it is, that's not eagle, obviously people aren't soccer fans when they see this, that's been fifa's world cup logo for a while, look that the 2006 and 2002 world cup logos, they will have that thing looking like an eagles beak, but its just the cup,

you guys are just dumb, with you messages, when there really isn't one, the dude is black because its south Africa, represents an African, and the background of different colors, showing other race, all fifa logo, have that same thing,

UGHHH!
what flipin' EAGLE?!

compare that small "eagle-looking" logo to the logo from 2002

it's not a flipin eagle. they just used the same logo this year. they didnt collored it up cos it would be too collorish. and the white backbround is white cos it looks clearer. africa is collored cos you can mix some collors and you will get some country flags

"flip" you guys and the racism,  it drives me crazy "oooh look , he is sooo racist , he said you people","you dont like me cos i'm black?"

silly americans

Cant see any eagle not to talk of a sad one,yet it doesn't make sense. The south Africans should be thanking the whites that they stayed that long if not this wc will not be hosted by them.

Ohh?

I hope you realise that over 90% of the stadia and hotels were constructed under black majority rule

Dumbass cretin.

I guess Nigeria has to ''thank the British for staying until 1960'' or we couldn't have hosted Nigeria '99 and Nigeria '09.

In fact some of you here are really dumb.

HI there i was browsing internet and this topic caught my eye.  I was reading the comments on the logo and i thought i wud leave my interpretation of what i think the logo represents,

To be honest the figure in the logo to me is a SHADOWED image of a footballer be him of white or black race is of no significance.  It shows a football in the logo but not having been kicked but the figure actually in the process of making a scissor kick to the ball. Which is a great image to use as its a spectacular style of goal scoring used mostly by world class players

I see the colours of the South African flag in the shape of the country in the background on to which the SHADOWED footballer is set .  All of which is against a white background but it couldn't be done against any other colour and still be as vibrant as it. And could the other colours on the logo not be viewed as a representation of all countries participating in the tournament?

This brings me to the "EAGLE" image at the top right hand side of the logo.  I struggled to see this "EAGLE" and had to resort to actually turning my laptop on its side and still cudn't make it out.   All I can see is the abstract design of the World Cup Trophy used in other World Cup tournament logos

I dont think there was any racist intention meant from the artist or in any part of the logo which in my view has been over analysed and extremely mis-interpreted by some narrowminded and shallow individuals who are now using this "shocking hidden racist message" discovery as a window of opportunity to bring a new angle of racist speculation,  which can be used to add more fuel and controversy to the volatile situation already in the country.

Just adding my thoughts to the subject.
