- Do I go on about the current news story and reactions from the so-called World about the kidnapping of over 200 young ladies sold into slavery or marriage, or both?
- Do I go on about the self righteous out cry from folks whose backyard has to be filled with bullshit clutter?
- Do I go on about how this thing has been going on for quite some time and that it only just hit the news after 3 weeks and the Nigerian Government had done little or nothing to resolve this issue?
- Do I go on about the so-called Afri-Con logo??
Yeah, maybe I will start here.
Folks, are we too blind to see? What does this symbolize?
Looks like a vagina to me!!! Looks like it is encased in a red oval, looks like them same NWO leaves embracing this red oval, and looks like they are focusing on 4 stars, 4 star nations… I am sure Nigeria is one of them…. then Sudan, which they have already made sure that it was split apart. Libya of course, Man Made River, water resources, gold…
But for sure they are concerned with the whole continent. Where are the African voices against this tyranny? Is the idea to birth a New Era for African Nations, Peoples, Resources, Commodities, Wealth? A New Era of domination by Euro-Western powers (NATO)? This image is scary. Where does it display cooperation between nations. There are 54 nations in Africa…. Or should I say 55 countries in Africa, how do they intend to Command 55 Nations? and draw them into their new womb, web of Command??
How ludicrous, how blatantly arrogant to think that one small country can claim dominion over a whole continent! What if it were reversed and Africa decided to create the United Africa USA Command and put all 50 states and its various land claimed territories around the world.
And the most unfortunate thing about this impetus is the so-called Leader of the Free World, has a Black Face. How utterly disappointing!

News story and reactions from the so-called World about the kidnapping of over 200 young ladies sold into slavery or marriage, or both?
There is so much more to this story than is being told. Corporate media needs another distraction. The spin is nauseating. We can always find reason to point fingers, how many of these heralders are willing to undo the damage their ancestors did to the African when they were colonizing it. How many Africans were kidnapped, raped and murdered? What about the hundreds of years when Africans, male and female, were denied the right to read thru fear of punishment? How many of them became rich families due to slave labor? Where is the outcry? The retribution? The reparations? The acknowledgment that they too are guilty. Not to mention the underlying theme of Destabilization to create a reason for invasion. Be careful. Haven’t they learned yet?
The Obama administration is dispatching military officials and hostage negotiators to Nigeria to aid in the recovery efforts of more than 250 girls kidnapped by the militant group Boko Haram, whose leader recently boasted “I will sell them in the market”

US Army Prepares for Nigeria’s Possible Break-up (2015)
-The article below and related articles raise pertinent questions- 1. Is the United States promoting a breakup, in what’s known as the ’tissue scarcity scare’ scenario, where the suggestion and promotion of a concept leads to its manifestation. Nigerians skeptical about the possibility of a breakup get reassured that best analysis from the US suggests its high possibility of success and parties in favor of this go ahead in full force to make this so-called expert analysis a reality? Or is a natural breakup indeed the reality?
The US has been known to be at the center of important breakups in the past. Countries like Vietnam and Korea had the US play a major skewed role, and when these Nations divided into North and South, the US stationed its troops at the border to defend usually the Southern territory, and the Northern usually became a rejected, isolated rudiment.
In Nigeria the North, currently the power holding block, which is majorly Muslim, and lacks petroleum resources will almost certainly be turned into an Arab aligned, possibly terrorist ‘axis of evil’, Nation. While the US will according to experts defend and instill puppet rule over the resourceful South, which it is believed it will assist in secession if a breakup war occurs.
| cover of Newsweek magazine,
dated January 11th, 2010
The US will likely favor such a breakup for obvious reasons- the current leader of Nigeria thumped his finger in the US nose, clearly rejecting the installation of US AFRICOM military command in Nigeria. Nigeria’s government has also of recent signed deals with Russia and Iran for major resource, military and power(Nuclear generation) mutual ventures. This alliance possibly does not sit well with the US. In addition, Nigeria has been promoting development, not by serving US interest but by cooperation’s with so-called third world Nations like Brazil………………………………………………..

Nigerian church at Christmas 2011
Nigeria is reported to be used as a major drug transit and money laundering centre for the proceeds of the CIA drug trade. (CIA Agents & Nigeria.)
The CIA takes a strong interest in NIGERIA
Former Nigerian leader Ibrahim B. Babangida is reported to be a Mossad or CIA agent (CIA Agents & Nigeria.)
“IBB is a Mossad/CIA asset, as was Abiola and Umar Muttalab (father of the crouch bomber and former Chairman of Nigeria’s premier bank, First Bank) amongst others like Orji Uzor Kalu.
“Mossad’s chief operative in Nigeria is Alon Nelken, an Israeli and owner of Megaplaza shopping mall in Victoria Islands, Lagos.
“In Nigeria, one would find a clear infiltration of foreign bodies posed as foundations and organizatonal institutions all geared toward influencing government policies in the oil and gas sectors.” (THE CIA IN NIGERIA)
by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley May 7, 2014
“The last thing Nigeria needs is a foreign military presence to prop up its corrupt government.”
Bring back our girls. The message is a simple one that resonates with millions of people around the world. Those four words were first seen in a now famous twitter hashtag in the aftermath of the kidnapping of 280 teenagers from a school in Chibok, Nigeria on April 14, 2014. The Boko Haram group which is fighting that country’s government admits to holding the girls captive.
Only people who closely follow international news were aware of this situation until last week. It is right that so many people are concerned for the girls’ safety. Unfortunately, the effort to draw attention to this horror is of little use without a deeper understanding of Africa’s political situation.
Because western nations continue to interfere in Africa’s affairs and place compliant “strong men” in power, nearly every government on that continent is weak. Presidents and prime ministers exist only to enrich elites and ensure that valuable resources reach the western capitalist nations. It seems ludicrous that Nigerian president Goodluck Johnathan at first denied that the kidnap had taken place, and then vacillated between claiming that the girls had been recovered or that the number captured was smaller than reported. Hashtags and petitions are a poor substitute for a government whose infrastructure is dedicated to producing and delivering oil to the West but not doing very much for its own citizens…………………………………
People need to get their own house in order before pointing fingers backed with little or no knowledge of what is really happening. Not to mention the resources that are mysteriously missing from this equation.
Self Righteous outcry from folks whose backyard has to be filled with bullshit clutter? Oh and did I mention child prostitution? Real men? Don’t buy children, organs, drugs, politicians, land from the indigenous, poor education, toxic chemicals to be sprayed in the air, nuclear weapons, I can’t even think about this. There are billions of things that real me should never buy, but it is done daily without a second thought.
Please, we really need to wake the hell up!
Prosperity Of Black Women (POBW)
“wow, it’s sad when you have more white celebrity men speaking more against this than the black celebrity men, but are we really that surprised??”
Then someone posts this picture of Jamie Fox, yep that certainly fixes that issue.
Folks really need to research stuff before they get on the band wagon. I don’t know how many of these pics were photoshopped or how many celebs agreed to be posted with these signs, but for information about where it came from in 2011 check out this article.
Why “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” Just Doesn’t Work
Posted by Andrew Unterberger on 04/12/2011 at 4:51 PM News
The Popdust Files: Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, drake, justin timberlake, viral video
It’s noble that celebrity power couple Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are attempting to use their fame and hypnotic hold on the internet for a worthwhile cause such as raising awareness of child sex slavery. Enlisting some of their more popular friends for a series of ads on the subject, attempting to go viral with the campaign, getting creative with the message—all commendable. But watching through one of their “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” spots, something just feels wrong about the entire venture. Not immoral, not insensitive, but rather simply misguided, in a very fundamental way.
In case you haven’t seen them yet, the “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” spots are under-a-minute-long shorts based around male celebrity cameos—including pop stars Drake and Justin Timberlake—which feature them doing goofy, irresponsible things (Drake beats up a robot, Justin shaves with a chainsaw) in order jokingly to demonstrate what “Real Men” do (view robots with distrust and prefer a close shave, respectively). This pronouncement, voiced by an unseen narrator, is then immediately followed by another pronouncement: “Real Men don’t buy girls.”

Do I go on about how this thing has been going on for quite some time and that it only just hit the news after 3 weeks and the Nigerian Government had done little or nothing to resolve this issue?
A few years ago, I was listening to NPR, believe it or not, it was my lucky day, and the information that came across the airwaves about Nigeria was daunting to say the least, then a few years before that, the Women protested topless against the Oil Moguls, then another article about how the regulations are next to nil when it comes to how the oil is refined, the toxic waste in the water, the debate over GMO foods, the so-called Goodluck and the cronies gathering the riches into their coffers and leaving the rest to suffer and die in poverty and lack of good educational facilities. The influence of the IMF and WB and the backroom deals that were/are going on. The internal agitation and disposition between so-called warring factions.
It was just a matter of time before Nigeria began to tumble. Its support of the toppling of Qaddaffi was key. I have sat among Nigerians and heard them discuss the state of affairs in their beloved country and the corruption of the leadership. My heart cried out for my brothers and sisters in Ghana, especially when they found oil reserves there.
The BEAST can only prevail when there is fighting and antagonism amongst the people. “United we stand, divided we fall.” Nigeria is falling because it is divided… this issue is just the tip of the iceberg and it demonstrates a deeper problem that has been going on for decades. The Nigerians can call for Global Assistance from NATO (North Atlantic Terrorist Organization) but they obviously are short-sighted and forgetful about what that cry has done to other Nations around the world, and particularly what it has done to Libya!!! Here’s an article that you may want to archive…
Written December, 2011
NewsRescue[Op-ed] In the aftermath of the unfortunate bombings and sporadic attacks that took place in Damaturu the Yobe State capital and environs on the last Sallah Day, the Embassy of the United States in Nigeria hastily put out a public statement declaring that such like bombings should be expected in three well known hospitality establishments in Abuja the nation’s capital.
To discerning observers not only did that score high marks for bad manners as that was hardly what a nation still grieving and coming to terms with its losses expected from a supposedly friendly nation, but that the US embassy was being economical with information on what it actually knew about the incident, and more significantly, the role the US government itself has been playing in the whole gamut of acts of destabilization against Nigeria.
“REAL MEN DON’T BUY GIRLS”
This meme really got me going in more ways than seven. I have always had an issue with the term “real men” or “real women” as opposed to fake ones? I would always ask. Who determines what is real and what is not real and who determines who is more of a man/woman than another? Certainly, the Western man who goes to the gym and eats out three times a week finds himself much more privileged than the man who has to hunt for his food. And women who have gotten their education in the so-called “finest” western institutions of learning feel themselves more “real” than a woman who feeds her family by farming.
But more than these examples is the blatant bias and bigotry that these memes convey. Without further details, the picture says it all. We, Eurocentric White Males are “Real” and anything other than what we convey is “not real”. And that means all of you out there who are not “privileged” to be a part of our class.
We are looking at celebrities, people! We are looking at people who have been bred into one of the most corrupt industries the Western world has to offer. We are looking at people who cover their own guilt and complicity with a sign signaling that they are “better” and more “real” than the rest. They are telling their “fans” who have made them “rich” through their hard work and support, that they are better than them, and the fans don’t get it, as they are mesmerized by the very idol, they idolized.
Does it really matter how many celebrities carry this sign when these same celebrities give blood diamonds to their to be spouses?
Does it matter when these same folks own more things that they could ever use, at the expense of slave labor in some godforsaken land?
Does it matter that these celebrities eat at the finest restaurants being served by folks who do not even make minimum wage.
Does it matter that these celebrities have enough money to buy all the “fashion models” they want and fill their parties with them.
Does it matter that these celebrities have their pick of the finest wines, glasses and drugs that wars have been fought over to satisfy their elitist palates.
Does it matter that the core belief that these celebrities were bred on was the superiority of their stock over all of humanity.
Does it matter that pedophilia, child porn and child prostitution runs rampant in the Cult of Entertainment.
Does it matter that they ate a few opponents on their way to the top?
And with that and much more, does it matter that these celebrities carry a sign……. A sign that singularly drenches its carrier in disgusting bigotry!
I say, put down the sign, and clean out your own backyard. Confess your own hypocrisy and move to change the world YOU LIVE IN!
LOOK AT THE MAN IN THE MIRROR!
On the Death of Nelson Mandela
- The vicious system of apartheid—blatant, racist, brutal oppression and discrimination against black (and other non-white) peoples in South Africa, which Nelson Mandela struggled against—was part of a legacy of centuries of the most horrific plunder of Africa as a whole by the capitalist world. In South Africa after World War 2, apartheid further institutionalized and intensified that vicious oppression. Black (and other non-white) South Africans were locked down in prison-like “Bantustans,” without the most basic necessities of life (like clean water or decent shelter). They were treated as non-humans, subject to fascist “pass laws” that governed their every movement. On the backs of their labor, white settlers lived the lifestyles of northern Europe and global capitalism-imperialism accumulated massive profits.
- Nelson Mandela emerged as an opponent of the apartheid system in the 1950s. He joined the rising tide of courageous, widespread struggle among many different sections of people in South Africa that went up against the whips, clubs, guns and torture chambers of the regime. For this he was sentenced to a life of hard labor in prison, and he never backed down in his opposition to apartheid. The struggle against apartheid became a cause that inspired people around the world. Many people gave their lives in this struggle. And Nelson Mandela became the most prominent symbol of that struggle.
- But the powers-that-be are not praising Mandela because of his role as an opponent of apartheid, but because he conciliated with the forces of the old order, and played a key role in dismantling apartheid in a way that didn’t excavate, but in the main reinforced the historic and horrific oppression of the black and other non-white peoples of South Africa. Whatever Mandela’s intent, his outlook of “embrace the enemy” which is being so extolled by the powers-that-be in their eulogies, went directly against the need to uproot all the political, structural, economic, social and cultural relations that formed the foundation for that system.
- We have to have the honesty to confront the reality of the path Nelson Mandela charted. It did not lead to freedom for the oppressed people of South Africa. The vast majority of people in South Africa continue to suffer in the grip of global capitalism-imperialism. Today, two decades after Mandela became the first black president of South Africa, the situation for the masses of black people in South Africa remains horrendous. South Africa is one of the world’s most unequal societies. Over half the population of South Africa lives in extreme poverty. The only source of water for 1.4 million children is dirty, disease-ridden streams. Immigrant workers from poorer countries in Africa are subjected to violent attacks. Conditions for women, who played such a heroic role in the battle against apartheid, are abysmal—South Africa has the highest rate of rape in the world. And, perhaps the most heartbreaking consequence of all, people have been left demoralized—seeing all this as more proof that fundamental change in society is not possible. That is not the case.
- But it is the case that nothing short of uprooting exploitation and oppression can free the people of South Africa or anywhere else. The “wretched of the earth” have made revolution and started on the road to communism—a society free of all oppression—first in Russia and then in China. They achieved great things before these revolutions were turned back. And not only has this been done before, it can be done again, and even better this time. We urge everyone reading this to get their hands on the special issue of revcom / Revolution “You Don’t Know What You Think You ‘Know’ About… The Communist Revolution and the REAL Path to Emancipation: Its History and Our Future,” and get into the work of Bob Avakian at revcom.us.
This story creates a shift in our self pitying paradigm and shakes us to the reality that we must not tarry to long. We must move outside of our mono-focused “all about me” world and “reach out and touch somebody’s” hand.
It may sound weird but that’s what this story did for me. It broke my focus on my own worries and pushed me to send “Healing Love & Light” vibrations to this family. Life & Death are both equally strong aspects of the experiential soul, however, it is how we engage the lessons and challenges that define our relationship to “Source”, “All In All”, “Creation” or whatever you want to call “God”.
The journey of life is filled with many twists & turns, ups and downs. Sometimes another’s sorrow, another’s loss is a wake-up call for others. Sometimes, as we sit bemoaning our individual fate; stressing about how to get out of a particular situation and grieving over our own losses; something like this happens and it seems to jolt us out of our own misery to acknowledge another’s sorrow. We are given a moment in which we can release our own sorrow and turn our attention and support to another.
Instinctively, we run towards another offering them compassion. This is healing. This is true concern for our fellow human being. This is true Love. Like a smack in the face, it wakes us up to the bigger issues we must confront living on this planet. If this smack can move us outside of our own mono-focused realities; then maybe we could spread that around to all those who suffer on this planet. Maybe we can be more pro-active in being gentler, more caring, more conscientious and less willing to allow senseless aggression/violence against our planet and the life-forms that inhabit it.
As living soul beings, we are teachers and students on the path of life.
Mother’s Worst Nightmare: Sons Killed on the Way to Graduation Ceremony as She Waits in the Audience
By Yolanda Spivey
WINDSOR, NC- A mother’s worst nightmare came into fruition as she sat in the audience of her 17 year old son’s graduation only to be pulled away from the ceremony to hear devastating news. Her two sons, 17 year old Deonta and 24 year old Anthony had been in a fatal car accident on their way to the ceremony.
Sandra Williams McGlone, and a host of other family members, were waiting to see her son Deonta Whitaker walk across the stage at his Bertie High School graduation to get his diploma, but instead she was told of the tragedy.
“I just can’t describe it. It’s unbelievable. It’s like it’s a dream that I want to wake up from,” said Williams-McGlone.
The family is devastated by this tragic news. Deonta’s aunt, Tamare Cherry told WBTW News 13, “This is such a difficult time for us. It was just devastating. Our minds were all over the place.”
Highway Patrol troopers said that the older brother Anthony was driving the younger brother Deonta to the high school graduation ceremony when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into trees on the road they were traveling. It is suspected that both young men died on impact.
The mother, Williams-McGlone stated that Deonta was headed to Elizabeth City State University and he was a scholar. He received numerous scholarships to attend the University. The oldest son Anthony was a graduate of Bertie County High School and was employed by UTI Global Logistic as a Technician. He leaves behind a 3 year old daughter.
Deonta’s best friend accepted his high school diploma on behalf of Deonta and his family.
The brother’s funerals will be held at the very same high school they were headed to. They will be laid to rest in Ahoskie, N.C.
