Italian Soccer Team VP Calls African Player “Little Black Boy”

Paolo Berlusconi, vice president of the Italian soccer team AC Milan and brother of the former prime minister, is under fire for using a racist term to refer to their new star player Mario Balotelli, an Italian of African descent. “Now, let’s go see the family’s little Black boy, the hot head,” he said at a rally before going to Milan’s stadium.
