“I’m a naturalized Italian, but I’m from Ghana. I was abandoned by my parents and adopted by two angels. I suffer with racism everyday. I’m the first black to wear the jersey of Italy. I’m not angry, but my life experiencies make me act differently from other people. Then, try to learn more before you criticize me.” - Mario Balotelli

Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?
