What’s behind the violent racist attacks in Tunisia?
The Take examines the rise of racial tensions in Tunisia.

The attacks follow a speech by Tunisia’s President Kais Saied accusing African migrants of conspiring to make Tunisia more African and less Arab. This is the latest in a string of authoritarian moves by the president, and it has protesters back out in the street. But what will happen to the victims of this racism in the meantime?
