Newcastle striker Demba Ba insists he will not become the latest player to boycott the Kick It Out anti-racism campaign.
A number of high-profile players refused to wear a Kick It Out T-shirt during last weekend's round of Premier League games.
Ba was allegedly subjected to racist abuse during Newcastle's draw at Sunderland on Sunday and police are thought to be investigating the incident.
Ba, who admits he has reservations about the Kick It Out campaign, says he will wear the T-shirt before next weekend's clash against West Brom.
"I have read a lot of things about the campaign, for example about Rio Ferdinand not wearing the T-shirt," Ba told the Daily Mail. "I do not know if he is right not to wear it but that is his choice.
"I am unaware of the campaign because it is going to give a signal that you see it and read it and probably people will think the players act like this, and we have to do our bit.
"Something is right about the campaign but a T-Shirt won't change a lot of things unfortunately.
"I will wear it because it is just kick racism out of football and it is a good message but I don't truly think that is going to change something.
"It is difficult to know the solution. You have to go to the source and when I say the source I mean the grown men who do it and it is going to be difficult to change them and their mentality.
"What you can change is the little boys going to school. We have to change the next generation and maybe the campaign helps to get that message out there."
