Racism And War In America And Beyond

AFRICANGLOBE – America’s ruling elites are blatant in their intentions of maintaining “white privilege” at home and economic dominance by military means abroad. The American sense of “manifest destiny”, accompanied by the “white man’s burden”, never truly faded into mere historical references. They are real notions that continue to exist and define “white privilege” at home, and military crusades outside.

Time To Reform America’s Grand Jury System

AFRICANGLOBE – Rooted in history as a skeptical check on the crown, the American grand jury — a secret panel of 12 citizens — has become largely a prosecutor’s rubber stamp. Grand juries almost always return an indictment, except in one specific instance: when it comes to cases involving a police officer.

Ferguson And American Double Standards

AFRICANGLOBE – American police seem to have awesome powers when it comes to Black males. They can arbitrarily stop and frisk them. When they pull them over in cars, they can smash and drag them through the windows if they take too long to disembark, and make them lie face down on the dirty sidewalk or street if they deem it necessary.

Michael Brown, Racism And America’s Open Casket

AFRICANGLOBE – The Michael Brown verdict is yet another reminder, if any was still needed, that racism was and always will be America’s open casket through which Black suffering is on constant display. Once again, the nation and the world are numbed at the no-guilty verdict and the closing of America’s moral casket on the hopes, dreams and aspirations of Michael Brown, a young Black teen whose body was riddled with America’s bullets of racism and indifference to Black suffering.

The N-Word Doesn’t Oppress Black People; White Supremacy Does

AFRICANGLOBE- Even if we get rid of the word n*gger, as Morgan desires, it will do nothing to dismantle the White supremacist system that allows the George Zimmermans of the world to stalk a Black teenager on the street, kill him, claim self-defense and then be set free by a jury of his mostly White peers.

Elections USA, Towards A Republican Controlled Congress? Will The Right’s Fake History Prevail?

AFRICANGLOBE – If most polls are correct and voters elect a Republican-controlled Congress on Tuesday, a principal reason is that many Americans have been sold on a false recounting of the nation’s Founding Narrative. They have bought the Right’s made-up storyline about the Constitution’s Framers detesting a strong federal government and favoring states’ rights.

Modern Day Lynchings In The Age Of Obama

AFRICANGLOBE – It is not an exaggeration to concur with those who believe that Black men in America are an endangered species, hunted like wild animals in a blood sport, to the extent that hundreds of rap protest songs about police brutality are now in high demand. For many Black Americans, the election of their first Black president signalled an end to the bad, old racist days and a beginning of the good, new tolerant society.

The U.S. And Global Wars: Empire Or Vampire?

AFRICANGLOBE – The notion that the US is building an empire, by engaging in wars to exploit and plunder countries’ markets, resources and labor, defies the realities of the past two decades. US wars have not resulted in the expansion of markets, greater control and exploitation of resources or the ability to exploit cheap labor. Instead US wars have destroyed enterprises, reduced access to raw materials, killed, wounded or displaced productive workers around the world, and limited access to lucrative investment sites and markets via sanctions.

War And Terror: Washington’s Secret Agendas

AFRICANGLOBE – One might think that by now even Americans would have caught on to the constant stream of false alarms that Washington sounds in order to deceive the people into supporting its hidden agendas.
