Advance photo/Jan Somma-HammelAli Kamara, 17, of , Stapleton, claims he was assaulted by a group of white men with bats.

The FBI has joined the investigation into an alleged racially-motivated beating that took place on Staten Island election night, where a black teenager says he was attacked by a group of white men with bats who yelled "Obama."
The U.S. District Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York announced today that it and the FBI are investigating the assault of 17-year-old Ali Kamara, a black Muslim who reported he was beaten in apparent retaliation to Tuesday's historic election.
Kamara says he was jumped on Pine Place in the borough's Stapleton community at about 11 p.m., the time Barack Obama was declared winner of the presidential election, by a car-load of white men wielding baseball bats who shouted, "Obama!"
Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, called the feds' involvement in such a case "normal" and said it would be working jointly with the county district attorney and NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force.
A police spokesman said that the attack on Kamara has not been officially classified as a hate crime. The beating is so far the only assault alleged to be connected to the presidential election reported in the city.

IA and Secret Service Called Over Station Incident

MILWAUKEE - A Barack Obama poster defaced with what appeared to be a bullet drawn near the head was left on a table in a district station of the Milwaukee Police Department.

Police Chief Edward Flynn issued a statement Friday saying the incident Thursday at the District 5 police station immediately became the subject of an internal investigation which is continuing.

He said there is no indication of any threat to the president-elect, but police notified the U.S. Secret Service about it anyway.

The chief said he is "committed to getting to the bottom of this troubling incident."

It's going to be a long 4 years because a black kid was beaten up in NY??? Are you fucking kidding me?
Isn't that a regular Saturday night fare in the cesspool we call NY?
Whites beaten by blacks, blacks beaten by whites, Asians beaten by anybody?
I'm sorry, but this is no great turning point based on my time spent in the Apple....

Italian Official's Obama Comment Draws Fire

ROME - Italians never quite know whether to laugh or cry at Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. But many reacted with incredulity and outrage after the prime minister, visiting Moscow on Thursday, amiably called the first African-American president-elect in United States history "young, handsome and suntanned."
Mr. Berlusconi made the remark while meeting President Dmitri A. Medvedev of Russia, saying that Senator Barack Obama's good looks, his youth and his so-called suntan were "all the qualities" for Mr. Medvedev and the future president to "develop a good working relationship."
Many Italian newspapers gave the comment nearly as much front-page attention as Mr. Obama's victory itself. The journalist Curzio Maltese wrote in the center-left La Repubblica that "bookmakers wouldn't even take bets" on how long it would take for Mr. Berlusconi to let slip another of his famous gaffes. "Mr. Berlusconi never fails to live up to our worst expectations."
Mr. Maltese added that just when Mr. Obama's victory was "inspiring billions of people" to consider "democracy, the most extraordinary triumph of humanity after centuries of bloodshed and intolerance," Mr. Berlusconi instead contributed "a miserable, vulgar and racist remark, for which he didn't even have the courage to take responsibility or the dignity to apologize."
A billionaire populist, Mr. Berlusconi excels at deflating such lofty talk. He said that his remark had been "a compliment" and that his critics lacked irony. "If you want to get a degree in idiocy, I won't stop you," La Repubblica quoted him as saying. "I say whatever I think."
He said the Italian left was wrong about everything, "including their lack of a sense of humor." He added: "Too bad for them. God save us from imbeciles."
The center-left opposition leader, Water Veltroni, had earlier called such "cabaret one-liners" unworthy of a statesman and asked Mr. Berlusconi to apologize.
In Brussels on Friday, when Mr. Berlusconi was asked by a reporter if he would apologize, he said whoever had asked the question should be added to "the list" of imbeciles, Bloomberg News reported. "You should apologize to Italy," it quoted him as saying.
Later on Friday, Mr. Obama, who has been calling world leaders, had a "long, cordial" telephone conversation with Mr. Berlusconi, according to the Italian news media. The two did not discuss the gaffe, the ANSA news agency reported.
The furor over Mr. Berlusconi's remark has raised a question: Why, of all the problems Italy is facing - a weak economy, higher mortgage rates - would Mr. Berlusconi get more attention for his off-the-cuff remark than for his political program?
"Because it's the last straw," said a political commentator, Beppe Severgnini. "By now, Berlusconi isn't a political case; he's a psychological case."
Mr. Berlusconi's remark "wasn't racist; it was infantile and untimely," he added. "He has such a high opinion of himself that he thinks it's acceptable to say anything to anyone."
On Friday, Italy's leading daily newspaper, Corriere della Sera, ran an illustrated display of Mr. Berlusconi's most infamous gaffes. In 2002, he said that Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen of Denmark was "so handsome I'm thinking of introducing him to my wife."
In 2003, he compared a German in the European Parliament to a Nazi concentration camp guard. In 2005, he caused a diplomatic commotion after hinting that he had persuaded the Finnish president, Tarja Halonen, to back Italy to host the European Food Safety Authority by wooing her. "I had to use all my playboy tactics, even if they have not been used for some time," he said.
Yet Mr. Berlusconi's latest gaffe seemed to tap into a deep well of anger at him, which is at least as strong as his high approval ratings. A brief report on NYTimes.com about the comment drew nearly 1,600 responses, most from upset Italians.
A reader named Alberto wrote, "Mr. Berlusconi's stupid joke is a further demonstration of the racism and intolerance that grow inside Italian population, helped by the embarrassing attitude of Italian politics."

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago family says they were subjected to racial taunts and maced after the election Tuesday.
And they believe their attackers were Chicago police officers. Other similar incidents have also been reported.
While the rest of the country and world praised Chicago for how peacefully people celebrated Barack Obama's presidential victory, there are reports of disturbances that night and early the next morning. And the trouble reportedly came from the most unexpected source.
"I remember this navy blue, unmarked car was the alst of the three police cars that was trolling each other, and they rolled past and they yelled out, '*********** ******,'" said Christine Ballard, alleged hate crime victim.
Ballard and Cornelius Voss were in their lawyer's office with their two daughters and a niece Friday. They say they were in the family car with the windows open on West Division Street in the Austin neighborhood Tuesday night when the men in the other car shouted the n-word. Then Voss says the men sprayed mace at Ballard and the children, destroying the family's celebratory mood.
"For it to be the beginning of a new day, it didn't feel like it to me," Voss said.
Voss and his family showed proof of their hospital treatment that night. He says he believes the four men in the blue sedan were police officers because the vehicle had a license plate that began with the letter "M."
On Friday afternoon, the Independent Police Review Authority confirmed that as the celebration in Grant Park ended so peacefully, on the West Side, that night and Wednesday morning there were "multiple allegations involving O.C. spray" used against civilians by suspected police officers. The IPRA would not confirm whether the other complaints involved an unmarked blue sedan or racial slurs.
Ballard and Voss have filed a lawsuit related to the incident. They will use the courts to retrieve surveillance camera videotapes to help them identify the alleged police culprits.
"We thought that Tuesday evening was the beginning of a new era in America. Unfortunately and apparently, some Chicago police officers felt otherwise," said attorney Gregory Kulis.
Other attorneys could reportedly announce lawsuits related to the same alleged incidents in the coming days. And with so many witnesses on the street that night, it's possible the actual license plate number of the offending vehicle may have been noted.

Two 18-year-old men have been arrested and charged with assault as a hate crime in an Election Night attack on a black teenager on Staten Island.

The two men are also charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the attack on 17-year-old Ali Kamara, a black Muslim who moved to the borough from Liberia in 2000.

Kamara has said he was assaulted by four white men who looked at him and said ``Obama!''

Police say Kamara told them he was walking home when he was jumped by a group of white men. Kamara required staples for a gash on his head. He was treated for wounds on his arm and leg.

The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has called for an FBI investigation into the attack.
