Racism has made victims in Italy: this week a far right sympathizer shot 2 men from Senegal and wounded others, always from Senegal, that were selling their goods in a marketplace in Florence before killing himself; last week as a consequence of a false complaint for a rape a group of people set fire to a nomad’s camp in Turin. For too many years, the last 18 I dare say, politics flirted with racism making acceptable the expressions of hate against those who seem different. Please don’t say that racism is just one of the many economic crisis consequences or that this could happen because someone has watched the wrong kind of film.

Il razzismo ha fatto vittime in Italia: questa settimana un  simpatizzante d’estrema destra ha sparato e ucciso 2 uomini Senegalesi ferendone altri, della stessa nazionalità, che stavano vendendo le loro mercanzie in un mercato di Firenze, prima di uccidersi; la settimana scorsa a Torino un campo nomadi è stato incendiato dopo una falsa denuncia di stupro. Per troppi anni, gli ultimi 18 direi, la politica ha flirtato col razzismo rendendo accettabili le espressioni di odio contro quelli che appaiono diversi. Per favore non dite che il razzismo è solo una delle tante conseguenze della crisi o che cose del genere possano capitare perchè qualcuno ha visto il film sbagliato.
