AC Millan's Boeteng and team-mates amazing stand against racism.


AC Milan and Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng took a stand against racism during a friendly match between Milan and four-tier side Pro Patriaon Thursday. Boateng led his team-mates off the field after black players were subjected to racist chanting from fans; he reacted to the abuse by picking up the ball and kicking it at the crowd in the stand behind him. The 25-year-old player removed his jersey and walked off the field, he applauded the opposing fans on his way out as they reacted with more angry chants.
The game which took place in Busto Arsizio came to an abrupt stop just after 26 minutes as Milan decided to take a strong stand against racism after Boateng and three other black players — M’Baye Niang, Urby Emanuelson and former Portsmouth midfielder Sulley Muntari were subjected to monkey chants from a section of the crowd, the fans continued in their abuse even after being told by the stadium announcer to stop.
WHEN WILL ALL THIS CRAZINESS STOP, RACISM SHOULD BE BEHIND US.
