  • Player joins racism alert (Italy) | Show Racism The Red Card
    graffiti were also found near Milan Friday about a Romanian boy who burned to death in a shanty last week Italian human rights groups and the Catholic Church have for months been sounding the alarm over what they say is growing intolerance of immigrants in Italian society Earlier this week a case in Parma made headlines when a young student from Ghana was allegedly beaten up by traffic police who reportedly mistook him for a drugs pusher Last month an immigrant from Burkina Faso who ran out of a Milan store with a packet of biscuits was killed by the shopkeeper who allegedly beat him to death with an iron bar after hurling racist insults The death brought thousands of African immigrants onto the streets of Milan in protest Earlier last month the African community in Castel Volturno near Naples rioted after the Camorra mafia mowed down three Ghanaians two Togo nationals and a Liberian A poll of readers of the left leaning newspaper La Repubblica on Thursday found 86 agreeing with the proposition that Italy has a racism emergency This summer the Italian government was widely accused of racism because of a survey of Roma gypsy camps which included the fingerprinting of children The government insisted the census which was eventually OK d by the European Commission was not aimed against any specific ethnic group or spurred by a wave of crime linked anti immigrant feeling In the face of protests Italy agreed with the European Union to make sure the scheme complied with human rights norms It also announced it would require all Italian citizens to have their prints put on ID cards starting in 2010 But the Council of Europe CE Europe s rights body claimed that Italian politicians had lacked the moral leadership to face down
