Italian Minister claims he is Cursed by African Spirits after Calling First Black Minister an Ape..."Lets Talk"

So racist statement lands this Senior Italian Politician in hot water with the African tribe leader. I thought the world was over racism now, it surprises me that my black brothers and sisters are still being victimized for the color of their skin. Surprisingly we even joke about it but it is not funny at all. These are some jokes i came across;
1.Racism will never end as long as white cars are still using black tyres. 
2.Racism will never end As long as white bread still costs more than brown bread.
3.Racism Will never end as long we still wash first white clothes, then other colors later.
4.Racism will never end if people still use BLACK to symbolize bad luck and WHITE for peace!
5.Racism will never end if people still wear white clothes to weddings and black clothes to the funerals.

This really worries me. Will it ever end, will we ever hold hands and walk together without discriminating the other? will a black man ever be in a high rank without someone pulling him down to shut the hell up?

This story is quite bizarre.
Senior Italian politician Roberto Calderoli who sparked outrage when he compared Italy’s first black minister, Congolese-born Cécile Kyenge to an orang-utan (a specie of apes), claims he is under siege from vengeful African spirits.
He is considering asking the Pope to recommend an exorcist to fight off the curse.
When Calderoli made the racist statement, he issued an apology and refused to resign. In November, he took legal advice after being charged with defamation aggravated by racial discrimination.
The trial, according to The Independent, is ongoing.
Calderoli now believes that Kyenge’s father, who is a tribal leader, has put an African curse – “macumba” on him as punishment for the remark.

Since his “orang-utan” comment, he has had six surgical interventions, the death of his mother, fractured bones and just a week ago, he discovered a 6ft snake in the kitchen of his house.

Last year, Oggi Magazine filmed Kyenge’s 75-year-old father Clement Kikoko Kyenge performing a ceremony in the village of Katanga in Democratic Republic of Congo. Clement allegedly prayed to God for the racist politician to repent.
Calderoli’s photo was placed on an enclosed termite mound during the traditional ceremony.
“The photos and the video were unsettling. They put a picture of me in the middle of a termite mound. That is not a friendly message,” said Calderoli to Oggi mag when he saw the video.
He said that after the video, he suffered the health scares and that two friends gave him a lucky charm supposed to possess mystical healing powers but “two days later, it broke in two by itself. A wizard has told me that there are terrible forces acting against me”.
Mr Kyenge later spoke to Oggi about Calderoli’s recent incidents.
He replied, “A snake in the house is not a good sign and I’m not sure Calderoli did well to kill it. If when he apologised to Cécile he was sincere, he can feel comfortable. If, however, those excuses were insincere, the ancestors might become angry.”
