Notes

I keep hearing that CH was often racist; collecting notes on that here.

The director of Charlie Hebdo, Philippe Val, was charged with "racial insults" after the publication in 2006 of three cartoons of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, presumably in the wake of the 2006 Muhammad cartoon riots. (French, English Google translation)
