I’m Mario Balotelli. I’m 23 years old, and I didn’t choose to be Italian. I strongly wanted [to be Italian] because I was born in Italy and have always lived in ITALY. I was really motivated for this World Cup and I’m sad, angry and disappointed with myself. … I’m not going to allow the blame to be placed only on me this time because Mario Balotelli gave his all for the national team and didn’t do anything wrong [character-wise]. So look for another excuse because Mario Balotelli… is prepared to move forward stronger than before and with his head held high, honored to have given his all for his country. Or maybe, like you say, I’m not Italian. Africans would never cast aside one of their ‘brothers.’ NEVER. In this sense us blacks, as you call us, are light-years ahead. There’s no shame on who misses a goal or runs less or more.

I read the original (italian) version and the second from last sentence was “noi negri, come ci chiamate voi..” Negro is the Italian equivalent for nigger! So it should read “us niggers, as you call us…” just FYI.

I don’t hate any race of people, and it pains me to wake up to other young people being misled to believe I do. I am for unity and equality.

…..when it may have an impact on whether or not I can sell my shitty “rap” albums and collaborate with artists of color in order to solidify my “street cred”.

I love when AFRICAN photographers capture images like this one!

Meet Your Photographer is a series that introduces you to the contributing photographers to yagazieemezi.com. Yagazie Emezi began this website as a project to locate young and upcoming photographers with the intent of providing a platform that showcases their work and points of view of Africa. This is part of a concerted effort to encourage the creative arts movement within Africa and the Diaspora, to provide us with spaces to tell our own stories, support our creative entrepreneurs, and view ourselves through our own lenses.
