Hillary Clinton’s Celebrity Feminism Was A Huge Failure

AFRICANGLOBE - Hillary Clinton will not be our first woman president, a symbolic blow made more painful by the fact that she lost to a raging misogynist and sexual predator. Donald Trump is now set to preside over a unified Republican government. This will almost certainly be disastrous for women, but according to exit polls, 53 percent of white women voted for him anyway.

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Man Kicked In Head, Has Car Stolen As Mob...

AFRICANGLOBE - A shocking video of a white man being beaten by a group of Black youths while witnesses shout, “You voted Trump,” and, “Don’t vote Trump,” has been posted online. The disturbing footage shows the man lying on the ground, struggling to get up as he is repeatedly punched and kicked in the head.

Obama: ‘Do For Hillary What You Did For Me’

AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama urged Americans to make history on Tuesday by electing the Democrat Hillary Clinton to succeed him in the White House. "I ask you to do for Hillary what you did for me," Obama told a rally in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the first of three he is holding for Clinton on the eve of the vote.

Kenyan Software To Prevent Fraud In U.S. Election

AFRICANGLOBE - Whatever the outcome of this year's election may be: Ushahidi - a tool sparked by crisis in Kenya - will help to keep elections fair in the United States. A group of tech-savvy Kenyans got together and developed the crowdsourcing software that let people report cases of violence and tracked them on a map. This provided a far more complete picture of the situation than any news outlet. Their technology has been used for all kinds of purposes - from earthquake response to journalism. And this year, it will help monitor the U.S. election.

‘If Democracy Was A Poison, Many Are Excited To See America...

AFRICANGLOBE - There is a consensus that the US election exposed the rotten underbelly of American society. Like Britons who voted Brexit largely because of prejudice against the ‘other’, Americans too are mainstreaming hate and prejudice as an ideology of power. And they are callously ethnic. Just listen to the rhetoric. It’s “pitchforks and torches time”, says Milwaukee sheriff David Clarke, who previously called the #BlackLivesMatter crowd “the enemy”. But there’s a positive side to this upheaval. America may be awakening to itself. People can see its endemic corrosion. At the very least, having some self-awareness is better than not having any.

Clinton And Trump Neck And Neck In New Poll

AFRICANGLOBE - Presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are in a virtual dead heat in their bitter race for the White House on the eve of their first head-to-head presidential debate, a new poll showed yesterday.

It Makes No Sense Asking White Politicians About A ‘Black Agenda’

AFRICANGLOBE - Sadly, shamefully, and sinfully, we are living in these so-called ‘United States of America’ whereby people – especially African-Americans –are still raising the question to politicians and political parties, “What about the Black Agenda?” Why Ask? Why do we keep raising this question every election cycle to people who don’t really care about the Black Agenda? To be blunt about it, it’s stupid, insane, and irrational.

Silencing America As It Prepares For War

AFRICANGLOBE - The election of Trump or Clinton is the old illusion of choice that is no choice: two sides of the same coin. In scapegoating minorities and promising to “make America great again”, Trump is a far right-wing domestic populist; yet the danger of Clinton may be more lethal for the world.
