Rome, July 31 - Italy's first black cabinet member
said Wednesday that the country was not by nature racist despite
a barrage of epithets she has had to endure since her
appointment in April.
"There are episodes of racism but you can't say that Italy
is a racist country," said Cecile Kyenge.
The Congo-born integration minister said she was "proud to
be Italian," adding she believed "a cultural shift" was taking
place in the country.
After months of brushing off attacks from members of the
anti-immigrant Northern League, Kyenge called on its leader,
Roberto Maroni, to denounce party members for their
"intolerable" rhetoric on Tuesday.
