Death Threats, Protests Greet Italy’s First Black Cabinet Minister

Cecile - ItalyThis post made me cry… not with sorrow.. pure laughter. Go on,  Sis…

AFRICANGLOBE – Italy’s first Black Cabinet minister is facing Internet death threats before a visit to a region known for its anti-immigrant political base.

But Cecile Kyenge says she’s not afraid and challenged Italians to respond to such intimidation themselves to prove that Italy isn’t racist.

Kyenge, a Congolese-born doctor who has lived in Italy since 1983, has been the target of racist diatribes ever since she was named integration minister in April. She has been called “Congolese monkey,” and a member of a “bonga bonga government.”
