Pope Benedict the Sixteenth could not hide his clear enjoyment of the first Black people he had ever met when the American First Black family visited Vatican City. Former Hitler Youth, Johan Ratzinger, now Roman Catholic Pope Benedict told Vatican L'Osservatore Propaganda Romana that he never knew American blacks could be so entertaining:
" I knew that they sang and danced and made fools of themselves( I have always been a big fan of Gary Coleman...ask my henchmen, I always say- What you talking about Willis! when they suggest changing 2,000 year old doctrines) But these Negros have read books, even write books and have opinions, rudimentary though they may be about the stems, cells and embryos that I love so much. And that Schwartze woman...Ach du liebe St Augustine, did you see the guns on that broad!"
