This is what usually catches my attention. I understand it, and agree but not often for the reasons people may think. We (understandably) look at white supremacy from the perspective of how it manifest against us (i.e. Dr. Fransis's if you're Black get back etc). However, the same thing exist among "people of color" (which is a term typically meant to exclude that people lacking color). There are efforts to redefine relationships that do not use western influences as an intermediary or...

Excellent my sista True dat in everything you conveyed here. It is the SAME in this country....where the MEDIA says what it wants you to know. It is only afterwards do you learn the entire truth. For example: the current massacre in newtown. Well it was LATER that we learned that the mother had all these weapons in her home.

Because the Chinese are not European they get a pass?? They have resource needs as well as economic needs. They as other outsiders see the chance to exploit the people and resources of a politically, economically weak Africa. I just don't understand how African descended people continue to lie in bed with Asians. Especially since we understand how they treat us in the U.S. Time to grow up politically.
