It has been tragically reported that ex-AC Milan youth player Seid Visin, 20, committed suicide after suffering constant racial abuse.
The Ethiopian-born youngster moved to Italy for better opportunities but was sadly found dead in his home after penning a powerful letter.
In his letter, Visin wrote: “Now, wherever I go, wherever I am, wherever I am I feel on my shoulders, like a boulder, the weight of people’s skeptical, prejudiced, disgusted, and frightened looks.”
Seid Visin, in the letter recounts how racism increased after more migrants settled in Italy. There was also an incident where a white woman refused to be served by him.
Late Visin recalls how he felt he had to “prove to people, that they didn’t know me, that I was like them, that I was Italian, that I was white.”
Sadly, if this does not prompt the perpetrators from questioning their actions, perhaps nothing ever would!
