Daisy Osakue Attacked With Egg In Italy Over Racism by winkmart: 8:49am On Jul 31, 2018
An Italian-born Nigerian athlete Daisy Osakue, an Italian-born Nigerian athlete, on Monday, July 30, 2018, was attacked with eggs in an incident that has kicked up a racism row in Italy.

Osakue, born in Turin to Nigerian parents, was struck in her left eye when unknown assailants hurled an egg at her face from a car at Moncalieri, near Turin.

The discus thrower landed in Turin's Oftalmico eye hospital with an injured cornea but is expected to make a full recovery before next month's European Athletics Championships in Germany.

According to a report by The New York Times, Daisy Osakue is confident the attack was racially-motivated amid a spate of similar attacks on people of colour.

"I don't want to play the sexism or racism card, but people should be able to go out without someone attacking you out of the blue, They are just cowards," she said.

Police reacts to the Attack

Since the attack occured early on Monday, the European nation's far-right Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, has been accused of promoting hate against immigrants with his anti-immigration actions.

Former center-left prime minister, Matteo Renzi, took to his Twitter account (@matteorenzi) to blame the government for the racially-motivated attack.

He posted,

"Daisy Osakue. She's an Italian champion. Yesterday she was savagely beaten up by racist scum. Attacks against people of different skin color are an emergency. Now it is evidence, that no one can deny, especially if it sits in the government."

Many Italian journalists and sports personalities have also publicly voiced their support for Osakue and condemned the motive behind the attack, even though local police are unsure about any racial motives behind the attack as white locals have also been targeted by the assailants.

The New York Times reported that the United Nations has also reacted to the attack, with the southern European chief of the UN refugee agency, Felipe Camargo, expressing how worrisome it is.

"We can not tolerate this escalation of indiscriminate violence, which reveals an alarming racial matrix," he said.

Salvini has been defiant in the wake of the heat from the Osakue attack, using the opportunity to attack the left's immigration policies.

"Is there a racism emergency in Italy? Don't be stupid. I point out that over the last three days alone the police have arrested 95 migrants while 414 others were reported to prosecutors," he said in a statement on Monday.

"The mass immigration permitted by the left in recent years has not helped, which is why I'm working to stop human traffickers and illegal immigrants," he concluded.

He also condemned the attack on Osakue and expressed his wish to "meet her and see her compete as soon as possible".

"Every attack should be punished and condemned. I'll always be at the side of those who suffer violence," he said.

Salvini has been constantly criticised for his crackdown on illegal immigration that has included closing Italian ports to shut out migrant rescue boats.

Racism will never die until Africans start building their country to compete with other higher countries.

Afterall African parents will always discriminate a wheelbarrow pusher as a lower class when they come asking for their educated daughter hand in marriage but will smile when equivalent class comes

here is the only truth.

Lets be honest, how many people respect a poor, homeless beggar

Black Africans over time have made Africans look like poor, homeless, helpless beggar always seeking for one help or another cry

Africa, especially black Africans have proven to the white and other races that black people cannot lead themselves to prosperity in their own country.

It is a shame that we cannot govern ourselves and make our home nations compete with European, American and Asian nations in terms of infrastructure; good roads, steady electricity, clean water, adequate security of life and property, and also in healthcare.

Until we achieve these, racism against blacks will continue till eternity, sadly cry

Yes but even very rich black Americans face racism too, the whole world has a problem with black people but they still like our music and our dicks.

- The Asians used to be racially segregated, but years down the line... they developed their country beyond the nations that once racially segregated them and now every Asian is first seen as highly intelligent even if he/she is as dunce as a donut..

Stop with this we are all human race nonsence, only blacks and Africans think like this. This is why we are always at the bottom and mistreated by everyone, because we don't have racial pride in ourselves. Racism is a competition(race) between two groups and it's either you are in it to win or you will be a perpetual loser like Africans. No other race cares about all this we are the world, we are all human crap that Africans believe in.

Got your point. Human beings get problem. But if my daughter come home with a wheelbarrow pusher, I would first be impressed by the guy's gut and curious to know his plans.If he has big goals I will support him. Now, my spouse would need a lot of convincing. Mothers are usually the problem. I once was a cleaner at a McDonald's (though already with a degree). Now, you only need to Google my name to see the "little" things that came my way since then. Life is challenging but it's fun if you are up to it.

You probably hate another Nigerian that belongs to a different tribe but will preach one human race to the white man. You people hypocrisy is sickening.
