6285...You're Too Black For Me

Italy.  Italy.  Italy.

Reuters reports that on Friday the Italian Minister For Integration, Cecile Kyenge, had bananas tossed at her at a party rally Cervia, central Italy.  The bananas were tossed in protest against the minister's proposal to make anyone born on Italian soil a citizen.

Catherine Hornby writes that "Kyenge has faced regular insults since becoming minister, often from other politicians. Earlier this month a senior parliamentarian in the anti-immigration Northern League party likened her to an orangutan and only apologized after a storm of criticism."

Italy.  Italy.  Italy.
