President Obama a “wicked black monkey” – North Korean state media

Korean-only article published by North Korean state media outlet contains highly racist language

North Korean state media called President Obama a “wicked black monkey” and South Korean President Park Geun-hye an “old prostitute” in a duo of articles and highly inflammatory commentaries published last Friday.

The condemnations, which included unprecedented levels of extremely racist and offensive rhetoric, were published following a speech made by President Obama during a visit to South Korea in April and spotted by North Korea watcher Joshua Stanton of the One Free Korea blog, several days after publication.
