I hope the response to Albin Kurti's comments on sexism in Vetevendosje is part of a new wave of anger. The time for panel discussions and reports is over - it’s time for rage accompanied with action.

Is there racism in Kosovo? Of course there is. But addressing it through an American worldview would be inappropriate, since Kosovo is a multiethnic society in its own way.
The best way to deal with racism in Kosovo is to center the dialogue on Kosovo’s own racialized minorities. Treatment of foreigners of color can be part of the conversation without dominating it.
