Racism flares with cases in Lombardy and Umbria

'Kill the nigger' near Milan, 'ugly' black schoolkid in Foligno

Racism flares with cases in Lombardy and Umbria

Rome, February 22 - Racism has flared up in Italy with headline-grabbing cases in Lombardy and Umbria this week that have spurred commentators to suggest the national mood is hardening against migrants. "Kill the n**ger" was scrawled on the exterior wall of a family who have adopted an African man at Melegnano near Milan earlier this week. The phrase was accompanied by a swastika. The family, who have hosted the 21-year-old Senegalese for two years, said this was not the first incident of the kind. "What is happening in so many cases today in Italy is also amplified by politicians like (Interior Minister and anti-migrant League leader Matteo) Salvini," said the mother of Bakary Dandio, Angela Bedoni, who adopted him with her husband Paolo Pozzi. "We must build bridges, not close ports," she said referring to Salvini's closing Italian ports to NGO migrant rescue ships. She also said Salvini's recent migrants and security decree "is putting many people into difficulties today. And it is a question of culture too. It is important to understand what happened in Italy before 1945 and today". Salvini replied by saying "I respect the pain of a mother, I embrace her son and I condemn all forms of racism. "And the lady should respect the demand for security and legality that is coming from Italians, that I make concrete as a minister. "Blocking migrant smugglers and their accomplices, installing CCTV cameras and expelling criminals is simply justice, it isn't racism". On Thursday, then, education officials in the central Umbria region said that they were looking into reports that a supply teacher had bullied a black pupil. The Tuttoggi.info site reported that the teacher made the boy stand in front of a window with his back to the class at a school near Foligno and said to the other children "look how ugly he is". The teacher's reported defence was that it was all part of a social experiment, and he was trying to explain the Holocaust. "We have been informed of this alleged case and we are running all the necessary checks," Antonella Iunti, the director of the regional school office, told ANSA. Education Minister Marco Bussetti said "urgent measures" would be taken and ministry sources said the teacher would be suspended. On Friday The father of the boy said "it is an episode of racism and it was not a social experiment". The boy's sister was also singled out to be mocked by the class, sources said. Talking to reporters outside the school, the father said "both my kids are ill over this". The teacher apologised on Friday, saying the incident was part of "an activity for integration aimed at raising students' awareness of the concept of racial difference and discrimination". The teacher told ANSA through a lawyer that the episode had been a "misunderstanding", on which he "apologises to the parents of the pupil involved and in general to the parents of the whole class".
