AC Milan coach says, “Walking off was the right choice when faced with something like this.”
Kevin-Prince Boateng, a black soccer player for AC Milan has decided to take a stand against the rampant racism in Soccer, and his team is backing him 100 percent. Newser reports that Boateng became so tired of the racist taunting from the fans he stopped the game by booting the ball in their direction, pulling off his jersey and walking off the field.

The choice his team made to follow him off the field shows not only support for their teammate but it shouts louder than words that it is time for some real change in the sport of Soccer.
