Ideals Clash In Nigeria.

ng

In Maiduguri, Nigeria troops pounded the compound of an Islamic sect blamed for days of violence in northern Nigeria then attacked it’s mosque, killing at least 100 militants. An AP reporter watched soldiers shoot their way into the mosque and then raked those holed up inside. The reporter later counted 50 bodies inside the building and another 50 in the courtyard. Militants are reported to be seeking to impose Islamic Sharia law throughout the muti-religious country. Nigeria’s 140 million people are nearly evenly divided between Christians, who predominate in the south, and primarily northern-based Muslims.

Haitian Boat Capsizes, Dozens Missing.

somali_refugee_boat2-300x214

A sailboat carrying Haitian refugees looking for a better life capsized and sank off the Turks and Caicos Islands. A reported 200 passengers were aboard, and an estimated 85 are still missing. One survivor said the boat struck a reef as it tried to elude police, rescuers found 113 survivors on 2 reefs about 2 miles southwest of West Caicos Island.  Refugees routinely take to the seas in banged up, overcrowded boats in hopes of reaching the United States, the Bahamas, or the Turks and Caicos Islands to escape poverty in the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation.

Aboriginal Dreamtime.

Image3

This post is on the Australian Aborigines, natives of the island continent. It has always amazed me how they have been able to survive in one of the harshest places on the planet. The word Aborigine, to my understanding has come up with some controversy lately. As explained to me to abhor is to hate, and original is original. So the word Aborigine could mean to hate the original, interesting considering who named them. Did you know that Australia started as a penal colony (Prison) for England? Did you know 8 out of the 10 most poisonous snakes in the world are found in Australia? Also about 5 out of the 10 most poisonous spiders, Salt-water crocodiles, Great White sharks, vast deserts and ultimately European invasion. Still against all this they have thrived with their culture intact. A people as old as time, their history never written only passed down orally. And just like the Mayans, have interesting concepts of time. The thing is, THEY (the Establishment) have us living in linear time, which is not natural and cannot be beneficial to us.

This post is dedicated to one of the first, if not the original Pan-Africanist/Black Nationalist. Marcus Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. Garvey was unique in advancing Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Garveyism would later inspire others from the Nation Of Islam to the Rastafari Movements. Marcus Garvey also started a newspaper “Negro World”, and also started one of the first black shipping companies “The Black Star Line” in 1919. Advocating black business.

U.N. Tabs Bill Clinton As Savior To Haiti

haiti2

The United Nations yesterday tabbed Bill Clinton, to be “Special Envoy” to the nation of Haiti. Strange considering he helped de-stabilize it in 1995, then the U.S., France and Canada helped oust Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. Back on the subject, his appointment is meant to bring “World View” to the problems of the poorest nation in our hemisphere (Not By Accident). Did you know? Haiti was the first island in the Caribbean to fight for and attain it’s independence. Real recognize real. Peace.
