Grosseto, February 20 - Italian police said
Wednesday they are investigating the bullying of a young woman
of colour who suffered a beating and endured racial slurs - all
captured on video and later shared on the Internet.
The incident, involving a foreigner living in the Tuscan
town of Grosseto, has outraged politicians as far away as Rome,
who are now calling for greater awareness.
In the video, according to local newspaper Il Tirreno, a
group of young women is seen slapping the 17-year-old while
shouting racial slurs such as "nigger".
Andrea Riccardi, minister for integration, called the
report "extremely serious" and far from a simple prank.
Police say that with the video in hand, they can begin to
investigate.
Such attacks cannot be tolerated by Italian society, said
Raffaela Milano, Italy-Europe program director Save the
Children.
"This episode of discrimination and bullying shows how, in
a country where there is almost a million foreign minors...
integration is still a distant goal to be achieved".
A recent survey conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Save the
Children found that approximately four out of 10 young people
have witnessed cyber-bullying, most often related to physical
appearance, followed by nationality.
