Bob Dylan sued by Croatia for racism after saying 'Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood... the Serbs can sense Croatian blood'

The hostility between Serbs and Croats is chilling  -- so Dylan is correct to express that truth in his elliptical way

Famous musician Bob Dylan is being sued along with the French version of Rolling Stone Magazine for ‘racist’ comments in the cover interview of September’s edition.

A Croatian group in France didn’t like Dylan’s answer to the question about whether or not he sees similarities between America today and the civil war era, reported

‘This country is just too f***** up about color. It's a distraction. People at each others throats just because they are of a different color. It's the height of insanity, and it will hold any nation back – or any neighborhood back. Or any anything back, ‘said Dylan.

It was Dylan’s next comment in the interview referring to the ongoing dispute between majority Roman Catholic Croats and Christian Orthodox Serbs that caused outrage in the Croatian community. Signs of the tension are still visible. Balkin Insight reported that Croatian vandals tore down bilingual and Cyrillic signs in Serbian minority institutions—an act of blatant discrimination, reported Business Insider Australia.

 ‘Blacks know that some whites didn't want to give up slavery – that if they had their way, they would still be under the yoke, and they can't pretend they don't know that. If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood,’ he continued.

Bob Dylan has never been accused of being racist before and was at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.

"and was at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement..."

I wonder if he knows that the first official slave owner in America was, a black man.
