President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz called the language used by Polish far-right MEP Janusz Korwin Mikke during a parliamentary debate as "derogatory" and "racist” and said he would decide on “ensuing the appropriate measures”

"Mr Korwin-Mikke has damaged the dignity and reputation of the European Parliament, where mutual respect and opposition to any form of discrimination are the guiding principles," Schulz said.

Korwin-Mikke known for his controversial views has caused outrage on Wednesday when he compared Europe's unemployed youth to "n*****s" in the U.S. South, as he delivered a speech to other deputies decrying the existence of minimum wage laws.

"Four millions humans lost jobs. Well, it was four million n*****s. But now we have 20 millions Europeans who are the N*****s of Europe," Korwin-Mikke said.

The Socialist coalition urged Korwin-Mikke to apologize or resign for what it called the "worst insult of racist discrimination and humiliation".
