London, Nov 18 : Poland Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski has allegedly passed racist jibes on US President-elect Barack Obama, saying that his grandfather was a cannibal, and ate a Polish missionary!
An Oxford-educated Sikorski (45) outraged colleagues when he joked that the US President-elect had Polish roots. "His grandad ate a Polish missionary," The Mirror quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, Opposition leaders in Poland are calling for him to be charged with breaking laws on racism.
Przemyslaw Gosiewski, head of the Law and Justice parliamentary group, said: "We are waiting for proceedings regarding Sikorski's racist statements."
Interestingly, another Poland political leader Artur Gorski, an MP, is already facing a court case for allegedly making racist comments about Obama.
