Re: Unmasking Saudi Arabia: An Enemy Under the Cloak of Friendship?

Has Saudi Arabia ever been the friend of African people? Remember they only abolished slavery in 1964. And in my personal opinion they are still practicing by enticing Islamic converts from other nations to live in the country. I've seen it myself. If anyone knows what a slave looks like, its definitely African-Americans.. well at the ones who are awake at the wheel.

Islam, of course, was born in Saudi Arabia but it was in Ethiopia that its adherents were first allowed to practice it free That decision on Ethiopia's part turned out to be a BIG, huge mistake. And the Ethiopians have been PAYING for it every.......since. But!

I have to wonder why there was such swift and decisive action taken (by the French or anyone else!!) to help the people of Mali and crush this 'takeover' ... yet, 100+ people a day have been killed in Syria for almost two years .... and no one is doing anything to stop that slaughter??

Interesting. So based on the articles thesis, should African's be focused on the corporate developmental model OR people with dark skin claiming to be friends and wanting cooperation but only wanting to steal African resources? I support Black media, but the same sensationalism that gets MSM into trouble isn't going to better inform people on Black perspectives.

Not to worry. I'm about to say something really controversial...but then again, maybe not. America (for example,) operates from a system of eminent domain (even though the land belongs squarely to the Lakota.) One can purchase land for 'bragging rights', which is about all that amounts to, but one could never truly own land, as evidenced by the thousands of examples readily available. (The U.S.court system takes land from 'private ownership' on a daily basis.) This action (from my...

"However, as long as that european economic methodology is in place around the globe then, maybe nothing will change." Agreed! I'd only add that the "european economic methodology" has a name, and that name is Capitalism. Part of why I don't like screaming headlines is that it plays off of the "shock value" of the headline to get a response rather than the information in the story (as presented) or subject as it exist.
