Egyptian Newspaper Publishes Incredibly Racist Front Page

The Egyptian newspaper Youm7 shocked and disgusted readers Thursday with its front page headline that uses extremely racist language to describe the issue of African gangs in Cairo.

WARNING: This article contains explicit language that some readers may find offensive.

The rest of the headline apparently reads, "Black Terror Gangs in Cairo," according to Twitter user Mona Eltahawy and others. Readers called the headline "disgusting," "gross," "a disgrace," and called for the paper's editor-in-chief Khaled Salah to either resign or be fired.

Others reacted as you'd expect:

Another major incident of racism in newspapers occurred earlier this week-- in the United States. On Monday, a Philadelphia newspaper fired its editor after it published a racist caption underneath a photo of a group of Asian Americans.
