Revenge can be a bitch

Black Africans in Mali rising up against their Arab slave masters

From Eric Dondero:

A new, and entirely unexpected development in Mali as a result of the French intervention. The blacks are rising up against their Arab/Muslim rulers in the north.

Buried in the 11th paragraph of a Reuters story (via NewsMax), "Mali Islamists Suffer Split as Africans Prepare Assault":
reports of killings of lighter-skinned Tuaregs and Arabs by Mali's mostly black army has raised the risk that the internationally-backed intervention against the Islamist fighters in the north could trigger an ethnic bloodbath.

"These people took up arms against us, our colleagues were killed. . . . I no longer have any Tuareg friends," one Malian soldier, who asked not to be named, told Reuters.
Editor's comment - It's really hard to argue with that logic. Of course, the long history of Arabs enslaving the black African population doesn't quite fit the liberal media template. So, expect this story to be go un-reported at CNN, and buried in the last paragraph on page A-18 of WaPo and the NY Times.

It's not unexpected, same thing happened in Sudan with little or no foreign help.

I haven't been following this story closely, but it seems like there already was an ethnic bloodbath against the southern black Africans.
