Default Italian football (soccer) league's well-intentioned racism protest

I'm not sure if it should go here or the Community forum... it's about a sports team, but it's about fighting racism... while wearing black face as a sign of unity/protest to it.

I'm also confused of what to make of this. Their hearts are in the right place but damn, could they find a more inappropriate way to express their unity?

After the disgraceful racist abuse Yaya Toure suffered during Manchester City's clash with CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, pictures have emerged of a lower league Italian side's misguided protest against racism in football.

Rioveggio, a lower league club near Bolgona, decided to make a stand after their Togolese player Teibou Koura was sent off for shoving an opponent who had reportedly shouted "shut up n*****" at him.

However the manner of their protest was a decided own goal as they chose to black up their faces in a rather mistaken sign of unity.

The players and coaches held a banner that read 'NO to Racism' although the fact that they had all painted their faces black slightly undermined their undoubtedly good intentions.
