Cécile Kyenge

Italian Minister for Integration Cecile Kyenge gestures during a news conference in Rome in this June 19, 2013 file photo. A senior parliamentarian in the anti-immigration Northern League party has likened Italy’s first black minister to an orangutan. Kyenge, an Italian citizen born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has been the target of repeated racial slurs since her appointment as integration minister in April. Roberto Calderoli, vice president of Italy’s Senate, said on July 13, 2013 at a political rally in the northern town of Treviglio, “I love animals – bears and wolves, as everyone knows – but when I see the pictures of Kyenge I cannot but think of, even if I’m not saying she is one, the features of an orangutan.” REUTERS/Tony Gentile/Files (ITALY – Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY IMMIGRATION)
