Obama: White Terror, Black Tears

Obama: White Terror, Black Tears

AFRICANGLOBE – When all is seen and assessed, Obama’s presidency raised Black hopes that today collapse into a heap of Black bitterness. To die under White rule strikes me as a lot more honourable, a better tribute to race history, than to be sacrificed under the rule of one of your own. The epitaph in the one is that the White world killed you; the epitaph in the other is that the Black president failed you, could not save you.

America: When Being Black Is A Crime

AFRICANGLOBE – Black Americans learned Obama’s political strategy on race early in his first term, Obama seems obsessed with convincing White Americans that he is not here to take their privilege away, rather than recognising that, pragmatically, America still has enough deeply held racial biases that he will be perceived as a race man by some, no matter what he does.

Why Are White People Scared Of Black People’s Rage At Mike Brown’s Murder?

AFRICANGLOBE – Make it stop, White people. You are the ones who created this godforsaken racist system by using your circumstantial power and privilege 400 years ago to institutionalize White supremacy. Now use that power and privilege you still have, 400 years later, to dismantle it.

Dear Africa: Watch Out! You Can’t Trust America!

AFRICANGLOBE – As America offers the handshake of friendship to Africa, Africa should wear gloves when shaking the hand of America. Do you remember what Obama said at the summit? Did you feel the insult when he set the conditions, when he tightened the strings, for economic cooperation between America and Africa?

Michael Brown Shooting: We Must Defend Ourselves

AFRICANGLOBE – Now, even more than in slavery days, we must defend ourselves. We must protect ourselves, our families and our communities because no one else will protect us. When White people feel their lives or their children’s lives are in danger or they are being threatened Whites are encouraged to purchase hand guns and automatic assault rifles. When Black men, women and children are slapped, punched, body slammed, choked, shot down and killed by neighborhood watchmen, policemen and other law enforcers hired to protect Black people we are told to pray, march and sing!

Zimbabweans Walk The Walk, Talk The Talk Of The Truly Free

AFRICANGLOBE – Zimbabweans are 300 years ahead of South Africans. They have their country back, while South Africans are landless, unemployed squatters crammed in townships with no hope, despite having the best constitution on earth. We continue to refuse to learn from Zimbabwe at our own peril.

Jamaica: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

AFRICANGLOBE – While Jamaica is an unsuccessful country, Jamaicans at home and abroad are a successful people. We have no doubt that it is within the capacity of our people to ensure that the good triumphs over the bad and the ugly. We have to stop being a nation which has great individuals and become a nation that collectively achieves the greatness

No African ‘Excuses’ But Trauma Of Slavery And Colonisation, Mr. Obama

AFRICANGLOBE – President Barack Obama’s recent remarks urging Africa to stop making “excuses” for the continent’s economic doldrums based on history of colonialism were not only unfortunate and ill-conceived but also insensitive. I’m not sure whether Obama has deliberately developed selective amnesia not to realise that the wealth accumulated by the country he now leads has been through the blood and sweat of those from the cradle of mankind.

The Lynching Of Eric Garner

AFRICANGLOBE – Let me be clear – Eric Garner was lynched. He was brutally assaulted and choked to death by a police officer who, supposedly trained, abused his authority with deadly precision. It is not enough to state that the officer used deadly force because when it comes to Black males and police, there is a violent regularity that has persisted for decades.
