Poster Politic

This poster has appeared all over Roma today.



Here's what it says (not translated word for word but with the intent) with apologies for any of the epithets.

NOTE: I have found a more powerful translation which is an even clearer message:


You call me a dirty nigger or a disgusting lesbian
But you are offended if I call you Mafioso.

Racism (prejudice) is a boomerang.
Sooner or later it comes back to you.

Well, they certainly don't mince words. However, in it's own way I think I prefer the direct approach. There is no chance they are going to be misunderstood.
