Racist Facebook Posts Target Italian Government Minister
Italian winemaker Fulvio Bressan sparked international outrage on Aug. 22 when he posted a series of racially charged posts directed at Cecile Kyenge, Italy's first-ever Black government minister. Bressan’s post calling Kyenge a “black monkey" and “gold digger” prompted wine connoisseurs to boycott his wine. Jacob Kennedy, a British restaurateur went so far as to smash his stock of Bressan wine on the sidewalk.
