  • "There has been very little attention in the U.S. press to repression in Honduras under the coup regime. Hopefully, that will now change: Amnesty International issued a report yesterday documenting "serious ill-treatment by police and military of peaceful protesters" in Honduras, warning that "beatings and mass arrests are being used as a way of punishing people for voicing their opposition" to the coup."
  • "The portrayal of these gangsters is horrific. White racist mythology of subsaharan Africans is concentrated in these characterizations. The Nigerians are vicious, stupid, superstitious, corrupt, sadistic, slavishly led by a demented honcho who is an eager cannibal. This is Idi Amin as symbol of the black-ruled parts of this continent. These Africans are the wicked masters of chaos and District 9’s mini “failed state.”"
