Tunisia’s Dirty Secret – the terror of being Black in North Africa

tunisia is in africa, just like egypt, morocco, liby and algeria
i know about this problem but looking at this video and hearing from the brothers and sisters themselves highlights what an absurd fucking world we live in
while we’re at this, read about what they did to the Tawergha’s of libya after obama started dropping his freedom bombs (the destruction of libya was obama’s coming out party)

To investigate just how accurate these claims were, we travelled to the region with one of our contributors, a prominent Tunisian anti-racism campaigner. Approaching the town of Sidi Makhlouf, we met fierce resistance from the local police who had somehow heard we were coming and clearly did not want us to document the realities of life in their community.

Once we managed to get past them, we soon discovered why. Hard though it is to believe, we found that in this town separate buses were used to transport white and black children to school – a practice that seems more reminiscent of 1950s America or even apartheid-era South Africa. Members of the local community we spoke to said this practice had begun some years ago when a local mixed-race couple got married and aroused the fury of the area’s “white” majority. Now they don’t want their children to mix with those from black families.
