Italian Politician Calls for First Black Minister’s “Rape”

Dolores Valandro, a former member of the anti-immigration Northern League party in Italy, was recently expelled for suggesting that someone “rape” Cecile Kyenge, the country’s first Black minister. Having since been expelled from the party, Valandro apologized for her remark and insisted she is “sweeter than candy.”
