OkayAfrica explores Roberto Calderoli and Italy's anti-black, racist mentality

Just last week we reported on Italian politician Roberto Calderoli‘s racist comparison of Cécile Kyenge — the Italo-Congolese new Minister of Integration — to an orangutan. Now, less than two weeks later, it appears that average Italian citizens have been emboldened by the discourse of their political leaders, hurling insults, threats, and bananas on stage at Kyenge’s rallies, most recently in Cervia, a comune of Ravenna. As Kyenge continues to push for laws that make it easier for individuals born in Italy not of Italian heritage to gain citizenship before the age of 18, conservative political factions across Italy are continuing to show their face, upping the ante with a mantra that originally featured on the Facebook page of a 19 year-old Veronese boy: “Bananas at Cervia, hand grenades at Verona.”

Kyenge’s responses have remained determined and on message, admonishing the banana throwers for wasting food in a time of increased global famine and poverty. In yesterday’s edition of La Repubblica – a center-left newspaper that is roughly the Italian equivalent of the NYT – Kyenge gave an interview (translation mine):

“Minister Kyenge, after repeating that she has never thought of leaving her post “not even for a moment” then stated: “Italians are not racist. Italy is stifled, however, by voices that scream louder. Everyone of us – continues Kyenge – must contribute to the creation of a serene atmosphere in which it is possible for different people to recognise each other with respect. I therefore request the intervention of the leader of the largest party from which the attacks have risen against me [Roberto Maroni, President of Lombardy and leader of the Northern League]. A cultural shift is necessary – continues Kyenge – some acts of racism have increased because of the fear of diversity. This is why there is such a need for an informative campaign of the Other.”

The liberal pathos espoused by the papers has been echoed all over Italy, particularly amongst Kyenge’s political allies and those sympathetic to the laws she wishes to propose. Readers of this paper are presented with information about the racism in Italy in a way that spurs their righteous indignation while quelling the average reader’s self-loathing and fear. However, this will never spark the conversation that Kyenge demands. Instead the response remains along the lines of “Reading this I’m enraged by the current sociopolitical climate in Italy. I’m not like the people in this article, nor the Lega Nord (the Northern League). Italy is a provincial country, rife with brutes (scemi), and we should be ashamed of them

This holier-than-thou cycle of distancing, disidentifying and shaming, is far more sinister than the hurling of fruit during political events. It speaks to Italy’s inability to come to terms with the systemic cultural, political, social disintegration at the heart of its institutions. Additionally, the fact that those coming to Kyenge’s defense are mainly members of her own political party is telling. Her race and gender are tied to her politics in a way that makes insulting her race and insulting her policies equally fair game for her opponents. And because in Italy those who are outraged have yet to hear of intersectionality, Kyenge’s race, skin colour, and otherwise “foreign” origins are the only things discussed in the media.

Thing is, there is another naturalised Italian citizen from Africa working in Prime Minister Enrico Letta‘s coalition government: Khalid Chaouki. He was born in Morocco and raised in Campania (southern Italy). Chaouki is currently using his position in government to push for laws punishing homophobic rhetoric and violence, to support global human rights issues of integration and immigration, and to advocate for multiculturalism in Italy, just as Kyenge has been tasked with doing. There is little to no backlash against Chaouki, save for the mandatory trolling of online articles where he is mentioned. His religion is not an issue. Indeed, Italy has had history of commingling with Northern Africa and Islam; the Kingdoms of Sicily and Naples were partially or completely Muslim for decades, if not centuries. The fact is that Italy is not a racist nation, although this is putting it too simply. Italy is anti-black and misogynist. How else would the country produce an elected government official, a woman, who suggests in a public forum that another woman ought to be raped?

As a point of reference take Silvio Berlusconi, the man who served three times as Italy’s Prime Minister, who committed wide-ranging fraud and other crimes against the Italian people, and was convicted of these crimes (but will never go to jail). The man who had sex with underage sex workers in brothels and had sex parties called “bunga bunga” (how the play on words about a “bongo bongo” government came to be lobbied at the new PM). Put simply, Kyenge’s Congolese origins are more embarrassing to Italy than a man who stole, changed laws to prevent his conviction, made overt pacts with the Mafia, and had sex with underage women. Being black is worse, though, according to the conservatives of the Lega Nord.

Italy’s problem is not immigration, illegal or otherwise. If anything, Italians are as big a drain on Italy as ever, with a risible percentage of the middle-class population deeming it necessary to pay taxes. Here is where I disagree with Kyenge’s suggestion that Italy needs a campaign to raise awareness about “the Other”. When you have intellectuals and moderates fleeing to other countries because they cannot find work or effect change, and when they attempt to stay are accused of communism or homosexuality; when just about every day you read in the Repubblica or Corriere della sera about a woman murdered by a lover, ex-lover or husband but there is never an article linking these things to the overarching theme of systemic violence and corruption coming from the heart of Italy’s government; when you have Italians in the South not considered Italians because of their skin colour or the lack of industry, oblivious to the fact that Italians worldwide have been considered people of colour until only recently. Italy does not need an awareness campaign of the Other. Italy needs first to recognise who the Other is, and it should start with a mirror.

Hmmm… *still scratching my head*

“The fact is that Italy is not a racist nation, although this is putting it too simply. Italy is anti-black and misogynist.”

Excuse me, but, what is racism exactly if not the conscious decision on the part of light-skinned Euro-descendents (so-called “whites” by their racist ancestors) to think that they are “racially” superior to so-called “blacks” (according to the racist classification of northern Europeans in the 18th and 19th centuries ? Hmm ?

Racism is racism and being “black” is what prompts racism in racists ! So many Italians are racist. It’s quite simple. Indeed.

    And exactly how many Italians are racist then? The media is bound to zoom in on any actions against Kyenge, but I hardly think these ignorant people make up the majority of the people in Italy.

    People like this are everywhere, unfortunately. But you can’t just go around and accuse whole countries like that. Worst things have been said in the US (which is made up by those same euro descendants you talk about btw 😉 ). Racist people like Roberta Calderoli are treating a whole race as one, that doesn’t mean you should stoop to their level and do the same with all Italian people.

In Europe they are the leading candidate for welfare, which while I do not object to welfare, it’s essential in capitalism, it will bankrupt these nations when they are supporting 20 and 30% of their population, permanently, on welfare.

In fact the situation is now so bad that black women are more likely to be employed than a black man, in some states its a 2:1 ratio. The self destruction of culture is all around us.

    Racism is when any group of a particular colour discriminates against another who is not the same colour. There is Chinese vs Indian racism (and the reverse). There is Black vs White and Black vs Brown (African vs Indian), and of course the other way round. There is of course White vs Black/Brown/Yellow and Red. But what you may not realize is that there is also Black vs Red. Any combination is possible and there are countless examples of each. Failing to realize this is mere foolishness.

    Italy has had thousands of years experience with North African cultures coming ashore and raping and killing… from the time of Carthag to the time of the Muslims, but most especially the muslims. They only learned to defeat the Muslims, on Sicily no less, by retaliating against the Muslims in the same way the were being attacked. This later enabled them to defeat the French who occupied Sicily. And later on Sicilians would become famous the world over for their Crime Syndicates and Mob Families. They learned it from the Muslims. Read your history, it’s better than television.

Now looking back at their ( America and Europe ) action against black people whose only crime is their color I feel a sense of justice and retribution on what is done to them by the so called terrorist .

This article would garner more credibility if it fairly presented the stance of the Northern League.

A fact none of us can avoid is that blacks do not integrate well with whites. Whether it be a cultural factor or an evolutionary factor, they do not educate themselves as well as other immigrants (specifically asians) and they commit more violent crimes in comparison to other immigrants upon entering “White European Society”.

Blacks are short-sighted, socially irresponsible and pose a serious threat to the cohesiveness and success of white european societies. To support this argument I use Detroit, South Africa and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) as examples. After their white rulers were ousted and replaced with black leaders, they slowly degredated into some of the poorest run places on the planet. Detroit, once the wealthiest city in the USA has become an American slum, a violent Africa-like place that was inconceivable in the 1950s when 90% of its residents were white.

This is what the Northern League fears, they are addressing this fear fairly (in my opinion) and it is unfair to zoom in on the aggressive actions of fringe elements in Italian society.

If this article is to be considered a piece of “journalism”, it would hae at least addressed one reason the other side (Northern League) is reluctant to accept immigrants into Italian society.

Their socialist policies are their undoing. Also, Blacks weren’t brought there to do anything. They came to these cities (freely) after World War II. They all had great paying union jobs with pensions. The downfall is how they were run and WHO they were run by. (Hint, hint) BLACKS.

    The outsourcing wouldn’t have mattered much if your dumbass negro leadership would’ve explored other areas of commerce aside from cars. Additionally, when you have too many welfare kings and queens (which is what all of those towns have), and very few taxpayers, it makes it rather hard to succeed. I wouldn’t expect you mindless negros to understand basic economics, however. Outsourcing wouldn’t absolutely destroy cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, or New York, because they have thousands of industries. Again , to simply ignore the fact that the cities I mentioned in my previous post are populated by at least 90% black people is just another part of your insecure denial. The truth hurts. It’s also a historical fact that Blacks did move freely to the north after the war because there were more opportunities in the big cities of the north. Do some research, simpleton. You might want to stay away from the Afrocentrist b.s. You also have very little substance, so there’s really nothing to debate.

    Let me ask you a question. Why is it that redlining was one of the factors in the downfall of Detroit? If blacks actually took care of their neighborhoods this wouldn’t really matter much because the homes wouldn’t lose value if you people were pleasant to be around. At the end of the day, there’s a very good reason people don’t want to live around most of you, and it isn’t because of your skin color. It’s because you’re all mostly horrible people to live around that have zero respect for anything, and anyone. That’s why. Crime goes up, and morals go down. Why would I, or anyone else, want to live around that?? And, fuck you, you worthless shit-for-brains, negro leach. Why is it that your own people don’t want to live around you?? Why do all of you follow white people everywhere they go, like a lost puppy?? You don’t like us, and we don’t like you. So, separate, and stay in your own neighborhoods. Simple. Like you.

Historical colonizers rebuke sharing. Italy is not immune to the rabid fear/hate disease. A superiority complex/bigotry is a filthy myopic form of humanity. Blackness, womanness, and change have poked the dirty Ape that is Italy. His Apeness is not pleased. Throw bananas of subservience, indifference, silence, staying in your place … He will then behave and mimic being human.

    Political systems and laws that Europeans copied. To be honest white people couldn’t do anything theirselves they were too lazy to get off their asses to do stuff so they captured Africans and made us do everything they were too lazy to do. What have white people brought to the table. All you do is take, steal and take credit for other people’s achievements and then get offended when people call you out on it.

You people live like savages and have no morals. We don’t want you here in Europe, and you’ll never be accepted here. Italy is for ITALIANS. Greece is for GREEKS. Norway is for NORWEGIANS. Get it?

There’s no such thing as racism. This was a term invented by the Marxist/Communist Bolshevik’s in Russia as a mind control mechanism. Its intent was to erode “pure” countries by making the native people feel guilty for loving their own culture, beliefs, history, and people. Communism is all about taking control of the population by any means necessary. They love to flood 1st world countries with 3rd world immigrants, that they know can’t assimilate with the native population. This creates public discontent, and moral decay. We were all put in separate places on the earth for a reason. It’s what nature intended. Everyone is primitive and tribal by nature. EVERY human being on the planet is primitive and tribal. It’s a defense mechanism that’s built into our brains for the survival of our own race/species. EVERYONE is “racist” and that’s okay. I like my family more than yours, does that make me a “familyist”? Now, do you see how ridiculous the term “racist” is? No one should ever feel guilty for wanting to protect their people, country, pride, traditions, customs, moral code, and land. PERIOD. End of story.

especially. African origin oppose France not racism. Nationalism everyone
cannot expect to receive. So called welcoming gather source. When emigrate to nation your. Struggle is retain your heritage those. Questioning
immigration in Italy are become. New business elite? Hello going Italy receiving federal assistance. High inflation for EU presently. Now reverse this if Italians immigrate. To Africa would or could they. Be culturally accepted now the paradox. Prostitution,drug mules and car jacking usually.
Africans yes nationalist going blame. Race so get facts together! Never mention exploiting masses Africa. Dictators protected by EU bankers!!!!

    Is it racist to want to live amongst your own kind. Multiracial society is inevitable especially today worldwide, and it opens peoples minds in countries but a limit is goid, an excessive amount of non white immigration that is going to pose a threat to thousands of years of race, history and culture of countries like Italy And od course the Italians want to protect that. The people who are to blame are not so much the Africans but the government for not tightening their borders abd controlling immigration. Also the money whites are exploiting you for cheap labour and you think they are doing you a favour. Do us all a favour go back to Africa Zambia, Namibia, Nigeria have good economies better than some European ecpnomies in dact qhich have been destroyed by the eurocrats. And you-ll be amonst your own kind which’ll rid resentment and racial tension. Why so you want to move to Europe for anyway?

    There is no doubt there is still a Nazi legacy in Italy, a sexist racist mentality that still permeates Italian society, but give them time, this kind of ignorance takes a few generations to change, they’ll grow up eventually when hopefully the ignorant bigots die.
    But really with austerity these fascists creep out of the woodwork trying to point fingers at who is to blame and there is a nazi stink that has grown since the economic crash across all of Europe and certainly in the UK, don’t give in and don’t give up the fight.

    These immigration policies are insane. What is at the root of the problem is that Islam has blackmailed or bribed or otherwise coerced politicians to let them in. The Muslim threat of violence is known the world over. It’s why so many police never processed the epidemic of rape in the UK, for example. They feared for their lives: the police that is, not the vicitims. Muslims are not economically productive enough to build an army of tanks and planes, so they need another way to get past the boards, and this is it: they immigrate. And then the real war begins. Just wait, you will see, it will be the same as it has been in every other nation they have conquerored or rather immigrated to in the past. From India to Morocco. Now they want it from the UK to China to South Africa. Be warned.

    But I agree we should cut off all interaction with Africa and let its population plummet to its natural levels.
