Shhh, don’t tell BH Times about all the incidents where Kim Jong Un’s official propaganda called Obama a “black monkey.”
Or that North Korea has strict blood-purity laws (South Korea is portrayed as the decadent, racially-tainted “Yankee colony”).
Or this incident reported by the East German Embassy:
On 28 March, there was a serious incident at 6:00 p.m. while the Cuban ambassador, his family, and a delegation of physicians from Cuba were touring the city.
A Korean passerby called to Korean residents in the vicinity to act against the Cuban delegation. A large crowd of people gathered quickly, including 100 children, and the crowd pounded the car with their fists, ordered the occupants to get out, and hurled insults, especially against the Cuban ambassador as a black man.
Although the Cuban ambassador identified himself as the ambassador of Cuba, both in Korean and in Russian, this had no effect on the crowd's actions.
The militia in the vicinity took no action at all.
The Cuban physicians urged the ambassador to open the car to get out. Once the Cuban ambassador exited the car, the delegation's cameras were taken away from them.
As the unit's troops arrived, they proceeded to exercise extraordinary brutality against the crowd, including the children. They struck these people, including the children, with the butts of their weapons.
Once the crowd had been driven away from the car, the Cuban ambassador established that the Cuban flag had been torn off and was no longer there. He asked the leader of the security troops to return the flag. Then the security service troops committed even worse acts of brutality against the people in the street and in the nearby houses, demanding that the flag be returned. The Cuban ambassador remarked to me that their actions were so brutal that if he had been Korean and had had the flag, he would have preferred to eat it rather than to give it back.
It’s like how the people who supported banning Muhammad cartoons (because drawing Muhammad was “Islamophobic”) never considered that the theocrats calling for Salman Rushdie’s death are the dictionary definition of Far Right. They’re in the top right corner of the AuthRight quadrant on the political compass.
