Seid Visin Commits Suicide After Years Of Constant Racist Abuse by ogbiwa: 7:52am On Jun 07
Former AC Milan youth player Seid Visin has killed himself after years of racist abuse.

Visin, who played for the youth academies of both Milan and Benevento, was recently found dead at his home in Campania, Italy at the age of 20.

After being born in Ethiopia, he later moved to Italy as a child and was adopted by parents Walter and Maddalena in Nocera Inferiore, where he would pursue his dream of being a footballer.

But in 2016 Visin decided to retire from the sport and focus on his studies, continuing only to play five-a-side football with Atletico Vitalica.

It was the latter club who announced his tragic death, with reports in Italy suggesting he took his own life at his family home in Nocera after suffering from constant racist abuse over the years.

According to Corriere, a heartbreaking letter Visin wrote was read at his funeral on Saturday.

It read: "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."

Visin also explained that he felt the racism he was suffering was a result of the increase of migrants moving to Italy.

The youngster even recounted a story when an elderly white woman refused to be served by him while he was working as a waiter.

Visin said that he felt like 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".

He added that it was as if he was "ashamed of being black, as if I was afraid of being mistaken for an immigrant".

Reports in Italy claim Visin first penned the letter, which was sent to some of his friends and his psychotherapist, back in January 2019.

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was roommates with Visin while he was at Milan.

Hmmm...

I still don't understand this race thing with the so called white people.. They are not white in anyway so where did they get the White People toga?

In fact, I think they are better called colored people... Becos you see them in different shades. Light yellow with blue eyes, yellowish white with green eyes, etc.

They turn blue when you hit them, green when they are envious, red when they are angry, etc...

So they are the COLORED PEOPLE!

Why would anyone commit suicide on the account of racial abuse?

In Nigeria, a particular race has abused more than 50million of other tribes and even maim children, brothers and potential fathers, rape women yet we continue to stand tall

so sad.

its kinda hard to shake off the racism in the western countries. I can still remember sitting in class full of white people back in college. its never been easy. We are still not accepted. We are being looked down with disdain.
but the problem is that home is even worse. That's why its very sad for a lot of us in the diaspora, dreaming of coming home one day seeing all the stupidity happening in Nigeria.
Africa should step up.

Maybe because I haven't gone outside the shores of the country.

If you abuse me racially, I'll only laugh at your stupidity.

I think it's better to relocate to countries that were once colonial powers in Africa for a long time, at least for a start. They may not like black people (no one does), but at least the racism experienced would be less severe and more subtle than the one you'd experience elsewhere.
Just saying.
