Thanks Marty, there is no excuse for the way she is being treated. She does seem handle it a lot better than most people would.

Every time I think US politics are ugly, I need only to turn to Italy to find worse!

Cecile Kyenge could have been injured if hit in the eye, even with a banana. Sounds like the person who threw them is against all immigrants, whatever their race, but sad that they used violence instead of words to put their opinions across. This lady seems to have dealt with the insult in the most dignified manner. Well done to her for keeping calm, and she's right that it's a waste of food too. Sad.
