Libya's spectacular revolution has been disgraced by racism

And all the morons at The New York Times sigh a moronic sigh in between their warmongering breaths. "Racist overtones...oh well, the empire must continue!"

From The Guardian

The New York Times refers to "racist overtones", but sometimes the racism is explicit. A rebel slogan painted in Misrata during the fighting salutes "the brigade for purging slaves, black skin". A consequence of this racism has been mass arrests of black men, and gruesome killings – just some of the variousatrocities that human rights organisations blame rebels for. The racialisation of this conflict does not end with hatred of "Africans". Graffiti by rebels frequently depicted Gaddafi as a demonic Jew.
