West Papua: The Genocide That The World Is Ignoring

AFRICANGLOBE - If you need evidence that politicians and the mainstream media pick and choose which oppressive conflicts to cover in order to further geopolitical ambitions, you need only Google “West Papua.” Ever heard of it? Have you ever been sitting at home watching CNN, BBC, or Fox News and heard the news anchor mention West Papua?

Germany’s First Genocide Was In Namibia

AFRICANGLOBE - It has become known as the first genocide of the 20th century: tens of thousands of men, women and children shot, starved, and tortured to death by German troops as they put down rebellious ethnic groups in what is now Namibia. Ideas and techniques that would play a key role in the Holocaust have some of their roots in German atrocities in colonial Africa, researchers argue.

Namibians Furious After Germany Refuses To Pay Reparations For Genocide

AFRICANGLOBE - Namibians lashed out Friday at Germany for refusing to pay reparations for the genocide of their people a century ago, calling it a “phenomenal” insult to the victims’ descendants. Germany had not only apologised to the Jews for the Holocaust, but had also paid reparations, Rukoro said. “Because we have a different skin colour, the German government is saying to us: it’s only an apology and that’s it,”

AFRICANGLOBE - A Facebook Live video posted by an angry bystander in Delaware who witnessed a white cop stop and question three children has clocked up almost 3 million views and sparked yet another debate around racism in law enforcement.

Europe’s Forgotten ‘Hitler’ Killed Over 10 Million Africans

AFRICANGLOBE - It seems that when you kill ten million Africans — you aren’t called ‘Hitler’, your name never comes to symbolize the living incarnation of evil, and your picture doesn’t produce fear, hatred, and sorrow — rather your crimes are simply swept under the historical rug and the victims of colonialism/imperialism remain forever voiceless.

Abortion: The Number One Killer Of Black Americans

AFRICANGLOBE - Since Roe v. Wade, more unborn, innocent African Americans have been killed from abortion than the combined deaths from police brutality, crime, AIDS and Cancer combined. Where are our rallies, protests, marches and vigils for the innocent unborn African American children who cannot fight for themselves? And while it seems far too easy for our people to make excuses for killing unborn children by saying “that’s their business“, “that’s between the woman and God” or even “it’s the woman’s body so it’s her choice“, a closer look at these excuses (and others) shows human irresponsibility, denial and the devaluing of human life at it’s very worse. So let’s tackle some of these weak excuses to see just how weak they are.

Aboriginal Righteous Anger

Australia’s aboriginals – her original people – were nearly wiped out by the invading British, starting in 1788. “Their lands were stolen, they were killed by new diseases, and even their children were taken from them as late as the 20th century.” A recent aboriginal demonstration frightened Australia’s prime minister, prompting accusations that the aboriginals were showing bad manners. But, “What are bad manners in comparison to genocide?”
