Iraqi Soldiers Makes Fun of Black Americans

This video is too many things. None of them good. You must watch it. What it makes me think about, which I have been thinking about for quite some time, is the manner in which images of African-Americans get transplanted across the globe.

Iraqi soldiers here, are clearly identifying with the white American soldier(s) filming this video. The most disturbing moment is when the Iraqi solder mimicks neo-Nazis, and says “White Power! No Black Power.”

I just can’t.
