North Korean leader in racist rant to President Obama


Nothing important in North Korea occurs without the tacit approval of its leader Kim Jong-Un. Therefore, it would be unthinkable that the run agency which launched an ugly, racist diatribe against President Obama was not approved by its leader.

In the ever increasing row between the US and North Korea over the satirised film the ‘The Interview’ which sets out a comic plot to kill the North Korean leader, the news agency called the first Black head of state a "Crossbreed with unclear blood."

The agency also said that Obama:

still has the figure of monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years,"

and that

it would be perfect for Obama to live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the bread crumbs thrown by spectators."

In spite of knowing very little about North Korea and its leader, except that he loves basketball and has had a particularly strong friendship with the former NBA star Dennis Redmond, the impartial world, I guess might have had some sympathy for a country which seems, at times is bullied by the western world.

But by insulting President Obama in the way it has, the North Korean leader and his news agency also insults every person of African descent, by suggesting that we Africans are less than those who have lighter skin. If Kim Jong-Un cared about what the world thought of him and his country you would not go about insulting the African world.

With all the problems across the globe today, the world sits a little more uneasy as the North Korean regime sits with powerful weaponry and an unpredictable leader with profoundly racist views
