Italian Integration Minister Cécile Kashetu Kyenge speaks at a press conference in Rome, Friday, May 3, 2013. The appointment of Italy's first black cabinet minister was initially hailed as a giant step forward for a country that has long been ill at ease with its increasing immigrant classes. Cecile Kyenge’s new job has instead exposed Italy’s ugly race problem, an issue that flares regularly on the football pitch with racist taunts and in the rhetoric of xenophobic political parties but has come to the fore anew as a shaky coalition government tries to bring Italy out of its economic doldrums.
