Why Scotland Should Split From Britain

Why Scotland Should Split From Britain

AFRICANGLOBE – Great Britain lost its allure long ago, but with Scotland taking its leave, that will surely deliver a crippling blow and reality-check to British pretensions There’s one good reason for why Scotland should vote yes for independence: the breaking up of the United Kingdom would be an imminently good thing for the sake of world peace.

Coconut-ism And The Death Of African Culture

AFRICANGLOBE – Black youths raised in 21st century South Africa have very little Black culture to identify with. Black culture tells them to wear long skirts and head scarves, and to leave the room when adults are talking. For leisure, old Black cultures tell them to sing hymns and dance half-naked on river banks. They want hip-hop, rock ‘n’ roll, miniskirts, gold stockings and red skinny-jeans.

Racial Repression And The Murder Of Michael Brown

AFRICANGLOBE – Few who heard the eyewitness accounts of the murder of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson needed an autopsy report to know that Mr. Brown was gunned down in cold blood. The autopsy report and the investigations to follow are the technocracy of racist slaughter, official reports of all of the details except those that matter. Had the murder been an isolated incident it would be tragic. But the death of Michael Brown was a political assassination. The systematic nature in which Black youth are harassed, intimidated, incarcerated and assassinated perpetuates the historic repression of American Blacks from the barbaric founding of the U.S. in slavery and genocide to supposed resolution with the Civil Rights movement. This is to state that any of these murders might be considered individually but the aggregation paints a clear picture of systematic racial repression.

Ferguson: No Justice In The American Police State – A Must Read

AFRICANGLOBE – Today Americans have no more protection against state violence than Germans had under National Socialism. Far from being a “light unto the world,” America is descending into cold hard tyranny. The “land of the free” looks like a Gestapo Nazi state. Clearly, the American police are an enormous danger to the public. It is not American civilians with carry permits who murder 500 people a year. It is the goon thug police. Gun control should be applied to the police who lack sufficient intelligence and judgment to go around armed.

South Africa’s Landless Blacks: Why Does The Impasse Continue?

AFRICANGLOBE – It was in 1652 when people of European descent began to systematically drive Africans in South Africa off their resource rich ancestral land, through force of arms, falsification of history, pseudo science, religion, the myth of White superiority and legal skulduggery.Yet for over 1 000 years before the Dutch arrived at the Cape of Good Hope, Africans were already accomplished farmers on their lands. By 1913, the settlers had dug in — deeply. The most brazen act of greed and racial oppression was the Natives Land Act of 1913 which was enacted and enforced by a consolidated White settler regime to deprive nearly 90 percent of Africans of 93 percent of their land. The 7 percent of barren land allocated to them was later increased to 13 percent. It did not end there.

Al Sharpton Does Not Have My Ear: Why We Need New Black Leadership Now

AFRICANGLOBE – If the nation does not believe in and protect its people, we should not be surprised when the people no longer believe the idea of the nation itself. These young people, some more militant than others, some whose understandable nihilism and “don’t give a f___” attitudes show up as militancy, are looking for leaders with the courage to tell the truth.The inconvenient truth is that the continued machinations of racism and its devastating and traumatizing impact upon Black communities will be the undoing of America.

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.
