Nonviolence For Whom?

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?

Hypocritical, Self Righteous America

AFRICANGLOBE – The racial upheavals in America, if not solved quickly and amicably, might escalate into a bloody, racial conflagration with more lives and property being lost, making a mockery of the self-righteousness of those who rule that country and regard themselves as a model society where human rights are observed and no one is discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion or creed.

The EU, Mediterranean Deaths And A Failed Libya

AFRICANGLOBE – The case of Libya today as an example of a failed state is beyond doubt with rival splinter groups tearing each other apart and dismantling a once vibrant economy well manned by Gaddafi. The Libyan Coast is now left wide open to dinghy boats captained by many Captains Unscrupulous who are willy-nilly cashing it big time while putting people’s lives in danger.

South Africa’s Afrophobia A Legacy Of White Monopoly Capitalism

AFRICANGLOBE – The American investment bank, Citigroup, recently ranked South Africa as the world’s richest country in terms of its mineral reserves, worth an estimated $2.5 trillion. South African whites and Western foreigners own a staggering 80 percent of this wealth. South Africa is unquestionably the world’s most racially unequal society.

South Africa: No African Is A Foreigner In Africa

AFRICANGLOBE – No African is a foreigner in Africa! No African is a migrant in Africa! Africa is where we all belong. No amount of national-chauvinism will erase this. No amount of deportations will erase this. Instead of spilling Black blood, we should all be making sure that we rebuild this continent and bring to an end a long and painful history – that which, for too long, has dictated that to be Black is a liability.

Killer Cops And The War On Black America

AFRICANGLOBE – As Frederick Douglass said, “for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.” The United States produced a bumper crop of what Billie Holiday would call “Strange Fruit,” in March: at least 111 bodies, the majority of them unarmed Black men, shot down by police in the blood-fertilised streets of American cities.

For Africa, A Renewed Quest For Integration

AFRICANGLOBE – The desire expressed the other day at a Conference of Ministers in Addis Ababa by some African leaders for increased ownership of the African project and integration was quite assuring and may have presented the continent with another opportunity to break away from a seemingly incurable lethargy.

White People Cant Be Terrorists

AFRICANGLOBE – White people can’t be terrorists. We’ve been told this for years. Not directly, perhaps, but when a white person bombs a church or massacres a school or flies a plane carrying 150 people into a mountainside, killing everyone on board, it’s hard to draw any other conclusion.
