Amerikansk rapper overfaldet under besøg i Danmark

Amerikansk rapper overfaldet under besøg i Danmark

Da den amerikanske rapper Talib Kweli besøgte Christiania i København i torsdags, blev han overfaldet af to personer. Det skriver Kweli på Instagram, hvor han beskriver, at han blev slået og sparket af to personer på grund af sin hudfarve. 

"Christiania var et af mine yndlingssteder i verden indtil i går aftes. Jeg havde hørt om den stigende racisme i Danmark, og nu har jeg set det med mine egne øjne. Jeg blev angrebet af to fanatikere. De sagde, at de "hader mig". De vidste ikke, hvem jeg var, de kunne bare ikke lide min hudfarve," skriver rapperen, der understreger, at han stadig elsker sine danske fans.

Kweli gennemførte trods hændelsen stadig sin koncert i Pumpehuset 26. november som planlagt. Se hele Instagram-indlægget herunder:

 

Me and @nikohigh walking into Christiania Copenhagen last night. One of my favorite places in the world until last night. I've been hearing about Danish racism on the rise. I witnessed it firsthand. I was attacked by two bigots last night saying they "hate me" and they didn't even know who I was, they just didn't like the color of my skin. It wasn't an Internet attack, it was physical. I was hit and kicked. Thank you to @nikohigh for helping me get out of there. It goes to show you that racism and hate doesn't stop for ppl with money or "celebrity" whatever that means. They stop nothing tho. The show still went on, Copenhagen was a great crowd. Even tho I will never see Christiania the same, a place I once wrote about for a travel blog as utopian, I will always love my fans in Denmark. Your love last night, especially while I was away from family during holiday, only made me stronger.
