Black Ain’t Beautiful In Libya

The inhabitants of the Libyan town of Tawarga are mainly black skinned people and most were loyal supporters of dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Rebel forces are closing in on the town from which most non-black inhabitants have fled. They assume when rebels seize the town there will be retaliation againg black skinned people from the town. Rebels insist these dark men were loyal supporters of Gaddafi and they took pleasure in torturing  and raping prisoners.

A typical comment from forces of the National Transition Council government is, “they raped our women, killed our children, they cut their throats. They’re not normal human beings.” We can expect there will be dead black skinned men when the rebels find those Gaddafi supporters.

I guess if one has a black skin in the new Libya, it is best to paint it white.
