The newly triumphant rebels in Libya have decided one of their very first priorities is rounding up blacks from sub-Saharan Africa and sticking them into makeshift jails. The men being held claim they’re just innocent migrant workers, but the rebels claim they were actually mercenary fighters for the regime of Moammar Gadhafi.
Just last week, we talked about how the rebels were turning out to be murderous thugs, but it turns out that they’re being even more systematic about their thuggery than we thought, because it’s now racial.
There are almost always unintended consequences when one nation sticks its nose into another nation’s business, so that’s not unusual in itself. But how ironic is it that the first black U.S. president is largely responsible for black Africans being unjustly imprisoned in a country he just worked hard to destabilize?
