Shem Hotep ("I go in peace").
"If you are the son of a man who had a wealthy estate and you inherit
Your father’s estate, you have to pay off the debts that your father
Incurred before he died. The only reason that the present generation of white Americans are in a position of economic strength...is because their fathers worked our fathers for over 400 years with no pay...We were sold from plantation to plantation like you sell a horse, or a cow, or a chicken, or a bushel of wheat. All that money. Is what gives the present generation of American whites the ability to walk around the earth with their chest out? Like they have some kind of economic ingenuity. Your father isn`t here to pay. My father isn`t here to collect. But I’m here to collect and you’re here to pay." El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X)
NOTHING "FEMININE" ABOUT FEMINISM...
There has been a literal tug-of-war between the Black man and White Supremacy over who will dominate the black woman. After 400 years of slavery the black man finally "laid claim" to his woman during the 1960s. But then, the white women invented Women’s Liberation, which sought to take the black woman away from her man. This philosophy tried to give black women what they "already had"! Meaning, no one was as "free" to do what they wanted as black women did. The only man a black woman had to answer to was her slave "master". And there is an old but popular cliché that proves this: The only two things that are free in America are a black woman and a white man.” The attitudes of American black women in the 1990s prove that she has indeed been tricked into the Women’s Liberation philosophy. Therefore, black men need to launch a rescue mission and rescue his women.
Darfur death toll at least 300,000
LONDON (AFP) - More than 300,000 people have died as a result of the conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region, British lawmakers said in a report, a figure more than four times greater than an official UN estimate. Compiled after interviews with non-governmental organizations, UN officials and British Development Secretary Hilary Benn, the estimated death count dwarfed the World Health Organization’s (WHO) figure of 70,000?
“We think that is a conservative estimate,” Tony Baldry, the chair of the House of Commons’ international development committee, told AFP.
The committee’s report faulted the UN health body for making a “gross underestimate” of the toll of the two-year conflict, began when a rebellion in the vast western Sudanese region was put down by government-sponsored militias which led a scorched-earth campaign against local blacks.
Yvette, 14, said she was paid $1 by U.N. peacekeepers to have sex. "I`m sad about it. But I needed the dollars," she said. "Who will feed me?"
Congo’s Desperate ‘One-Dollar U.N. Girls’: Shunned Teens, Many Raped by Militiamen, Sell Sex to Peacekeepers.
BUNIA, Congo – She’s known in the community as a “one-dollar U.N. girl.” At night, she sleeps on the cracked pavement outside a storefront. In the mornings, she sashays through the dusty streets, clutching a frayed parasol against the blinding sun. Yvette and her friends are also called kidogo usharatis, Swahili for small prostitutes. They loiter outside the camps of U.N. peacekeepers, hoping to sell their bodies for a mug of milk, a cold soda or – best of all – a single dollar. “I’m sad about it. But I needed the dollars. I can’t go farm because of the militias. Who will feed me?” asked Yvette. At 14, she has a round face with wide eyes beneath a cap of neatly shorn hair, and her hands rest on her hips in an older girl’s pose.
When Yvette was 10, a militiaman raped her, leaving her without clothes, she recalled. She cried a lot, wrapped her body in rags and then got up. She sought counseling at a women’s organization, where she
was told that she had done nothing wrong but that the theft of her virginity made her worthless as a bride. She should understand, the counselors said, that now no man would marry her. “From time to time, I still do it. I am obligated,” Yvette said. She and the other teenage girls interviewed for this article agreed to be identified provided only their first names were used. “Sometimes it happens in U.N. cars, other times at the camp. But at least they paid us. I was worthless anyhow. My honor was lost.”
Yvette’s story is not uncommon. The United Nations is investigating 150 instances in which 50 peacekeeping troops or civilians in the Congo mission are suspected of having sexually abused or exploited women and girls, some as young as 12.
