Human rights organizations say tens of thousands of African migrants in Libya have been displaced from their homes and jobs by months of fighting between forces loyal to former leader Moammar Gadhafi and the transitional authority that opposes him. Many are living in fear under difficult conditions in makeshift camps.

Tensions are running high at Sidi Blal port where about 1,000 workers from sub-Saharan Africa have taken refuge. Although the fighting in this part of Libya has largely ended, the migrants say they are being threatened by unknown gunmen.

Edmont Okoror, from Edo State, Nigeria, had been washing cars for the past six years until he says gunmen raided his home near Tripoli.

“Our belongings, they took them from us, our money, even our phones,” said Okoror.

Now the mainstream media has come clean and admitted that Black Libyans and sub-Saharan African migrant workers are endangered by the Al-Qaeda Libyan rebels.

The racist rebels have participated in an 'ethnic cleansing' campaign of bloodshed and destruction in what was once the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, with the intended goal of replacing Gaddafi's multicultural Libya to a 'pure Arab' Islamic republic.

Seriously, Arab racism against black Africans is as old as Islam itself - there was no massive civil war of black slave liberation.

What do you think?

If you're willing to kill for your belief, you're usually willing to hate for it.
