Italian football is going through the usual match-fixing scandal (the real scandal being the
Football Federation’s (FIGC) complete inadequacy and unwillingness to handle it
in a fair and honest way) but this is not what I want to highlight.
What happened on the FIGC’s Facebook page left me speechless. The picture below summarises it all.
As I’m writing this post people are bombarding FIGC’s Facebook page with comments asking for an apology because of the racist statement but instead the page administrator is deleting several comments and now in a cowardly move he seems to have vanished!
Today I feel ashamed to be Italian. Those people do not represent me nor the vast majority of Italians who are friendly and welcoming people.
