South Africans March To End Anti-Foreign Hatred
2008-05-25 09:02:00
Thousands of people marched through the streets of Johannesburg holding placards that said: “Xenophobia hurts like Apartheid” or “we stand against xenophobia.” Police said there is a momentary halt to the violence which enveloped the area and led to the death of at least 50 people while forcing thousands to flee for their lives. President Mbeki, whose silence and inaction played a major role in the violence being allowed to occur, finally commented: “Today we are faced with a disgrace, a humilitation as a nation in that we have allowed a handful of people to commit crimes against other Afrcans living in our country.” At least 10,000 people are displaced in Cape Town and thousands have left the nation to return to their homes. The best explanation the Mbeki government can offer is to blame the riots on former members of “apartheid security forces,” whatever that means. Mbeki has remained silent about the terror in Zimbabwe so it is not ...

2008-05-20 18:45:00
Key West , Florida. USA .- by Ray Fernandez A lot of you have been by the cemetery on Higgs Beach and have heard about the Africans buried there.Some said they died and were buried there in the name of historical truth these people were murdered, when you shackle someone hands and feet without food or medicine for months, they just don't happen to die, they are murdered for financial gain . Now that we got that out of the way we'll get on with the rest of the story. The life story of Zephaniah Kingsley (1765-1843), alleged smuggler, trainer and trader of slaves, more certainly Florida planter and man of affairs.One popular anecdote about Kingsley, often repeated and published at least twice, tells of the capture by a Coast Guard gunboat* of 350 Africans whom, so the story goes, Kingsley was attempting to land illegally the government after confiscating the human cargo could find no one capable of taking care of the Africans except Kingsley himself.Consequently, they were put in hi...

Moneyweb - News - ANC urges South Africans to save electricity now, for our future: "The most effective way of tackling the energy crisis in the weeks and months ahead is for the whole country to use electricity more efficiently. Until new electricity generating capacity becomes operational, South Africa will need to use less electricity to prevent the load shedding that has affected most parts of the country in recent weeks.The ANC this week called on all South Africans to work together in implementing the measures proposed by government as part of the National Electricity Emergency Programme. Parliament held a joint sitting this week to debate the causes of the current situation and the best way of addressing it. Government also provided more details of its plan, particularly steps that could be taken by households to immediately reduce the amount of electricity the used."Link

Africans vs African Americans
2007-10-30 01:49:00
Being introverted by nature, I observe a lot. One thing I often observe is that nearly every true African I have met has been well educated, speaks very intelligently, and is always eager to learn more. I wonder why that was but all I had to do was take a short look at African Americans.African Amercians tend to take education for granted for whatever reason and either can't comprehend or care about the longterm impacts of this decision. I think I read somewhere that Opra was building her own school in Africa and got into a discussion with someone over it. My point was simple, "kids just don't give a damn in America." Here you have endless possibilities to learn from K-12 and even lots of assistance and incintives to continue your education into college. Not many places on earth have so many opportunities and yet I just read in our paper that we have 10 schools who have more dropouts than students graduating....This is Indiana, the conservative capital of the mi...
