Prosperity Churches Warrant Taxation

AFRICANGLOBE – Recently Zimbabwe’s Commissioner of Taxes made a ground-breaking statement. He said that religious organisations are going to be taxed. Zimra is now working on the legislative framework which will be ready by November. Some people screamed that the Government of Zimbabwe was getting desperate. That may be so. But is taxing churches a sign of desperation or just a sensible response to the proliferation of so-called prophets and pastors who are more celebrity than men of cloth?

American Militarism And The Charleston Massacre

AFRICANGLOBE – The murder of nine African-American men and women in a Charleston, South Carolina church on Wednesday night is an event that raises many troubling questions. Millions of people, in America and worldwide, want a deeper explanation than the superficial nostrums offered by the media and official political circles. The initial media characterisations of senseless violence by a mentally disturbed individual explain nothing.

Africa Needs More Men Like Mugabe

AFRICANGLOBE – “I used to hate Mugabe with passion for making Zimbabweans come in millions to our country South Africa, but now, my eyes have been opened. I now see, know why the Zimbabwean economy was deliberately plunged by West as they sabotaged it in order to instil fear in other African nations wishing to take the Zimbabwean route – taking away land and other mineral resources stolen by whites,” Tshabalala said.

Why Not Bring Our African Americans Back Home?

AFRICANGLOBE – Perhaps it is about time to make a political statement about the oppression of black people in America and register Africa’s disgust at the situation unfolding in America where Blacks are targets of police brutality and murders.

Decoding Racial Tensions In America

AFRICANGLOBE – The shooting and killing of an unarmed Blacks speak massive volumes as to the omnipresence of racial tensions/distrust between the Black community and white police officers in the United States. As an overt corollary, to all intent and purposes, these shootings and killings seem to concur directly with the March 1857 US Supreme Court Dred Scott decision to the extent that Blacks “had no rights which the white man was bound to respect” and that “slaves are not regarded as US citizens.”

South Africa: Land, Statues And Malema

AFRICANGLOBE – There is no doubt that the South African government, under its beleaguered President Jacob Zuma, is feeling the heat, as the EFF relentlessly remind the ruling ANC at every opportunity to resolve the question of disproportionate land ownership between the white minority and African majority South Africans. The EFF has not made a secret of their encouragement of potential land invasions. Their populism, a news headline and vote-catching stunt, has got the ruling party worried about a potentially explosive issue.

Africa, Race, And The World Order

AFRICANGLOBE – The failure to acknowledge race as a fundamental feature of today’s unequal world order remains a striking weakness of radical as well as conventional analyses of that order. Current global and national socioeconomic hierarchies are not mere residues of a bygone era of primitive accumulation. Just as it should be inconceivable to address the past, present, and future of American society without giving central attention to the role of African American struggles, so analyzing and addressing 21st-century structures of global inequality requires giving central attention to Africa.

Nonviolence For Whom?

AFRICANGLOBE – As cities erupt after decades of oppression and violence at the hands of police, calls for nonviolence can be deafening. “Violence isn’t the answer,” the moralists chide when protesters throw rocks and clash with police. They’re right. But they’re telling the wrong people.

The Mediterranean Crisis: Western Media’s Deadly Disinformation

AFRICANGLOBE – The tragic death of hundreds of African refugees last week in the Mediterranean Sea has once again brought to light the deadly hypocrisy of Western leaders and their mainstream Press. Omissions and distortions are disconnecting the catastrophic event from its roots, preventing the real culprits from being publicly exposed. Were the victims Libyan “migrants seeking a better life in Europe”, or rather refugees fleeing a war zone created and fuelled by Western powers?
