The “humanitarian” U.S. military occupation of Africa has been very successful, thus far. “The Chibok
abductions have served the same U.S. foreign policy purposes as Joseph Kony sightings in central
Africa.”

Imagine: the superpower that financed the genocide of six million in Congo claims to be a defender of
teenage girls and human rights on the continent. If you believe that, then you are probably a member
of the Congressional Black Caucus.

A chorus of outraged public opinion demands that the “international community” and the Nigerian
military “Do something!” about the abduction by Boko Haram of 280 teenage girls. It is difficult to
fault the average U.S. consumer of packaged “news” products for knowing next to nothing about what
the Nigerian army has actually been “doing” to suppress the Muslim fundamentalist rebels since, as
senior columnist Margaret Kimberley pointed out in Black Agenda Report, the three U.S. broadcast
networks carried “not a single television news story about Boko Haram” in all of 2013. (Nor did the
misinformation corporations provide a nanosecond of coverage of the bloodshed in the Central
African Republic, where thousands died and a million were made homeless by communal fighting
over the past year.) But, that doesn’t mean the Nigerian army hasn’t been bombing, strafing, and
indiscriminately slaughtering thousands of, mainly, young men in the country’s mostly Muslim north.

The newly aware U.S. public may or may not be screaming for blood, but rivers of blood have already
flowed in the region. Those Americans who read—which, presumably, includes First Lady Michelle
Obama, who took her husband’s place on radio to pledge U.S. help in the hunt for the girls—would
have learned in the New York Times of the army’s savage offensive near the Niger border, last May
and June. In the town of Bosso, the Nigerian army killed hundreds of young men in traditional
Muslim garb “Without Asking Who They Are,” according to the NYT headline. “They don’t ask any
questions,” said a witness who later fled for his life, like thousands of others. “When they see young
men in traditional robes, they shoot them on the spot,” said a student. “They catch many of the others
and take them away, and we don’t hear from them again.”

Before reading this I was thinking about the "Get Kony" campaign, and this mentions him.

Let's face it bro. Raptor. There are some people on this site who are wrapped in American flags and Christian robes so they will never accept any of this as fact but will forever make obvious their Christian propaganda, anti Islamic sentiment and westernized pro american imperialist mindset.

The brainwashing is complete. I guess they don't realize how many Africans will die as a result of all this killing of African Muslims if it continues. We are talking about millions of people. And this is happening along with the spread of Christianity into areas of Africa where white missionaries have not been able to penetrate. All under the name of fighting terrorism. But instead of attacking the so called terrorists the American backed forces keep slaughtering innocent civilians en masse while these negroes are cheerleading them on in the name of democracy. It's downright sickening to me.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
