Kevin-Prince Boateng Walked Off Pitch After Suffering Racial Abuse Playing For AC Milan

Kevin-Prince Boateng was the victim of racist taunting by fans during an AC Milan friendly with Italian fourth-division side Pro Patria. He kicked the ball into the stands, removed his shirt and walked off the pitch. Players on both sides joined him. Most fans applauded. The match was cancelled.

This is a positive development for Italy, where Samuel Eto’o and other black players have complained about racist fan activity. Whether such a firm stand would have happened during a Serie A match is another question.
