Don’t kill white people. After all is said and done, the Charlie Hebdo outrage, the hashtags, and the
million person marches amount to that simple but very powerful dictum. In the eyes of the
governments that do most of the killing on the planet and the corporate media who act as their
scribes, there is nothing worse than targeting even a handful of white people for death.

One look at Charlie Hebdo cartoons shows that the word satire is being used very loosely. The
depictions of cabinet minister Christiane Taubira as a monkey, and the kidnapped Nigerian
school girls as pregnant welfare recipients
make a mockery of the world satirical. Regardless
of how many French politicians are skewered in its pages, it must be pointed out that Charlie Hebdo
indulges in racist hate speech.

Their reputation for insult and offense was quickly forgotten and the call to unquestioningly
identify with the victims was immediate. Within a few days, #Jesuischarlie was tweeted more than
one million times. The propaganda onslaught created an awkward example of hypocrisy for world
leaders who are always the worst killers of all.

media.
