An Animal's Vision


Italy senator lambasted over orangutan remark

A senior parliamentarian in the anti-immigration Northern League party has bowed to criticism and says he has apologised for likening Italy's first black minister to an "orangutan". 

Cecile 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 Saturday 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."

He said the success of Kyenge encouraged "illegal immigrants" to come to Italy, and she should be a minister "in her own country", according to media reports.

An animal only can see animals, how any animal’s vision  can see human as a human!
