Honduras' interim president Roberto Micheletti fired his foreign minister Enrique Ortez late yesterday for some virulent racism he directed at President Barack Obama.
An excerpt from the Associated Post:
Micheletti also replaced his newly appointed foreign minister who caused a flap by repeatedly referring to President Barack Obama as "a little black man who doesn't know anything" and a "little black field hand." He named Roberto Flores, Honduras' former ambassador to the United States, to replace Enrique Ortez late Wednesday.
Ortez has been a prominent spokesman for Micheletti, defending the coup as legal because congress and the Supreme Court had ruled Zelaya violated the constitution by pursuing a referendum on retooling the charter.
