Mississippi: America’s Forgotten Underbelly

AFRICANGLOBE - As we empathize with the poor overseas, let us not forget places like Mississippi, where Blacks are struggling against daunting barriers here in the U.S. Life is tough in Mississippi, and poverty is extreme.

No, ‘Je Suis Charleston’?: The De-Politicization Of Black Oppression

AFRICANGLOBE - Where was the worldwide revulsion at the racist terror attack in Charleston? “Obama sang ‘Amazing Grace’ and lulled into a stupefying silence Black voices that should have demanded answers as to why the Charleston attack was not considered a terrorist attack, even though it fit the definition of domestic terrorism.” As a result, “the political space for international solidarity with the plight of African Americans was significantly reduced.”

Obama’s Grand Deception And The Disregard For Black America

AFRICANGLOBE - We know the president is passionate about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement, committed to sounding the alarm over climate change and determined to help illegal immigrants.

How The Civil War Never Ended For Black America

AFRICANGLOBE - “Everything about the Civil War is present tense,” author C.R. Gibbs told me. “This is not settled.

AFRICANGLOBE - When you use white eyes to look at Black lives sometimes, no most times, the vision is distorted!
