The Polish Foreign Affairs Minister Radoslaw Sikorsky has stirred a big scandal with his statement that the grandfather of the US President-elect Barack Obama has been cannibal, a joke that was deemed shocking by his fellow Polish politicians.

Sikorsky, who is an Oxford graduate had said laughing "His grandfather ate a Polish missionary years ago."

The Polish authorities have asked that Sikorsky is sued for racism.

Another Polish politician, the Member of the Polish Parliament Arthur Gorsky, is also going to face the tribunal over accusations of racism. The reason is another statement about Obama, who Gorsky described as the "black messiah of the new left."

Gorsky further defined Obama's presidential win as the "end of white man's civilization."
