Corriere dello Sport Editor Ivan Zazzaroni Defends Racist Headline On Inter’s Lukaku & Roma’s Smalling

Corriere dello Sport’s editor-in-chief Ivan Zazzaroni has defended his newspaper’s decision to run with the headline ‘black friday’ for a story relating to Inter’s Romelu Lukaku and Roma’s Chris Smalling ahead of the team’s meeting on Friday.

The Roman newspaper have come in for heavy criticism for the decision with many individuals calling them out on it whilst both clubs have also shared their disgust at it.

Digital platforms? I would say dustbins. Made up of noble grudges and cheap indignation,” he began a statement posted to the newspaper’s website.

“A nice thought a day keeps the doctor away. Armies of right-minded people flock to the web these days, to turn their beautiful souls white. Having identified the racist on duty, go, two strokes on the keyboard and the stain is gone. You feel like the better man in a better world. White, black, yellow.

“Denying the difference is the typical macroscopic stumbling block of the racist in the anti-racism. The mental suburbs of Sunday’s moralists, when Thursday has also become Sunday. ‘Black Friday’, for those who want and can understand it, was only the praise of difference, the pride of difference. If you don’t understand it, it’s because you can’t or because you do it.

It concludes: “An innocent title, however, perfectly argued by Roberto Perrone, is transformed into poison by those who have the poison inside them.”
