‘Wicked Black Monkey’: You Won’t Believe the Racist Comments N. Korea State Media Has Been Printing About Obama
The White House has condemned North Korean state media after the Korea Central News Agency wrote incredibly racist things about President Obama following his visit to South Korea.
Following Obama’s visit to South Korea, the agency published two pieces that included quotes that would make even the most racist American cringe. The text was translated by John Stanton, an activist who covers North Korea’s many human rights violations.
One of the pieces quotes factory worker Kang Hyuk as saying “how Obama looks makes me disgusted. As I watch him more closely, I realize that he looks like an African native monkey with a black face, gaunt gray eyes, cavate nostrils, plump mouth and hairy, rough ears. He acts like a monkey with a red bum, irrationally eating everything. Africa’s national zoo will be a perfect place for Obama to live, licking breadcrumbs thrown by visitors.”
In another article, the news agency writes about the South Korean president, saying “Park made waste water-like reckless remarks after inviting her American master reminiscent of a wicked black monkey to visit South Korea.”
Another description of Obama said he was “a crossbreed with unclear blood” and “has the figure of a monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years.” They said he “does not even have the basic appearances of a human being.”
National Security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden said “while the North Korean Government-controlled media are distinguished by their histrionics, these comments are particularly ugly and disrespectful.”
Frank Feinstein, who monitors North Korean propaganda, said “there is no similar instance of this sort of language in the recent KCNA history.
