Not being racist isn’t enough. We must be anti-racist. #ASRoma players will wear a #BlackLivesMatter patch on their shirts for the final 12 games of the Serie A season. The first time #ASRoma will wear the #BlackLivesMatter patch will be against Sampdoria on Wednesday. The club will auction off match-worn shirts from each of the 12 games to raise money for a number of prominent anti-racism organisations.
Italian football is plagued by racism, with players of African origin often targeted for abuse.
