    U.S. State Department lifts warning to African Americans about ‘racist’ Spaniards… just as Michelle Obama jets into Marbella

    By Mail Foreign Service

    Staff at the U.S. State Department removed the contentious advice to travellers, which included the phrase ‘racist prejudices could lead to the arrest of Afro-Americans who travel to Spain,’ from its website on Monday.

    The First Lady landed in the Costa del Sol this morning for a break with her youngest daughter Sasha, nine.

    She is on a four-day visit and will be staying at the five-star Villa Padierna, rated as one of the world’s top 30 hotels, with 40 friends. The party has reserved 60 rooms.

    But Mrs Obama’s trip now risks being overshadowed by a row about institutionalised racism.

    The State Department advice sat alongside information about ETA and Islamist terrorist attacks in the country.
