There are so many red flags in this story its unreal. The truth is that many (here and elsewhere) don't really care one way or another about what's going on in Africa (anywhere on the continent). The primary interest only in things that appear to reinforce a stylized and romanticized view of how Black people should approach liberation. The truth of the situation represents a problem to that romanticized view, so its dismissed and things (like the thread title) are repeated.

Hey I know the comment was not for me,.,,,but! Sorry I don't see any romanticized in killing your OWN people based on a religious belief. The Boko Haram is an extremist group....no? And the nigerian govt agency is also tied to islam in some way....no? All the people living there just wanna survive....no? Regardless of what god....no?

Re: The Charlie Hebdo White Power Rally in Paris: A Celebration of Western Hypocrisy

His observations are sharp. He elsewhere throws Obama in with Bush and Blair for war crimes. The global psychosis is complicated. The Je Suis Charlies are obviously not inclusive. Politicians who support the greedy – about 100% of them – are historically responsible for creating hell and hatred on Earth – just as it’s always been. I look at what people include and what they exclude. Does he also condemn ISIS whose latest psychotic antics include throwing groups of homosexuals off rooftops?

Yeah, I posted it because he did touch on some very real and relevant points, not because I agree with every word. While I don't necessarily agree that the " Je Suis Charlie" slogan and march is more about " White supremacy" than it is about Freedom of Speech , and a nation's natural reaction to preemptive violence, it is worth noting that such a large solidarity could easily be exploited by White Supremacists, and easily turned into an " arrogant rallying cry for white supremacy".
