South Africa’s Afrophobia A Legacy Of White Monopoly Capitalism

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.

Zanu-PF And Zimbabwean Nationalism

AFRICANGLOBE – If there are any political parties in Africa known for nationalism today, certainly ZANU-PF will be counted among them. It is a party founded on nationalism, rooted in the liberation legacy that brought us national independence, and has a contemporary image synonymous with the revolutionary land reform programme, as well as the contested but highly popular indigenisation policy.

‘We Declare To The World That Africa Must Be Free’

AFRICANGLOBE – The imposing statue of Marcus Garvey in Lawrence Park, St Ann’s Bay, Jamaica has a powerful story behind its unveiling that, at the time, demonstrated a determined alliance with the African freedom fighters’ movement thousands of miles away. It is a moving story, and one that should be told over and over again, not only in Jamaica, but across the continent of Africa,

The War On Black Masculinity

AFRICANGLOBE – It should be obvious by now: true Black masculinity is under attack here in America. Like never before. And yes, I’m connecting the war on unarmed Black men with the gaying of Black culture, because it’s the same dang war being fought on two different fronts.

Police Violence Spreads In United States

AFRICANGLOBE – In reality, a police badge is effectively a licence to kill in the US. In working-class communities throughout the country, the police effectively function as judge, jury, and executioner, brutalising, arresting and killing workers and Black people with impunity. The growth of police violence, which according to government statistics has hit the highest levels in decades, parallels the dramatic expansion of social inequality in the US.
