Matt Pennington Interview About Libya

Although Col. Muammar Gaddafi has been killed, everyone living within the country of Libya are not free. The National Transitional Coalition (NTC) has been targeting Black Libyans and sub-Saharan migrants, claiming that they are still Gaddafi supporters. Many of the migrant workers left countries such as Eritrea, Chad, and Somalia to make a living in Libya. Now, they are being accused of still being against the NTC.

In towns like Misrata and Benghazi, rebel forces have driven Blacks out of their vicinity. They have also killed them for no reason at all. Actually, the Muslims' hate of Black people stems from the teachings of Mohammed himself in the Sahih al-Bukhari, which mentions that Mohammed had Black slaves and that Mohammed believed that Black people are infidels that need to be forced to follow Islam. Refugee camps have been set up all throughout Libya by organizations such as Refugees International for those whom have been displaced.
