"LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING. DO YOU HATE WHITE PEOPLE?

I hate white people.

DOES IT MEAN THEN THAT ALL WHITES WHO ARE IN SOUTH AFRICA MUST BE KILLED? IS THERE ANY WAY THAT WHITES, AS YOU SEE IT, THE WHITES THAT YOU'VE KNOWN CAN LIVE IN HARMONY WITH BLACK PEOPLE?
Look, I'm in the leadership! I know what human relationship means. I would love to see a black and white South Africa where people can live happily ever after. I wouldn't say I see it. I would be very happy if it could be there, but I don't see it.
The people at home are so bitter about the white people. Everybody feels like taking a gun and wiping the whole white population off the face of the earth in South Africa."

Oh forgot to update yall this group that may or may not be disbanded known as the Valkyries and/or the Sentinels are the org most directly responsible for shooting & killing Black people @ CHOP/CHAZ over the summer
The entire nonblack-dominated activist scene there bears collective responsibility really because people have known this for months. They even know the likely names of the two people who pulled the triggers on those two Black kids & pistol whipped them while they bled out
Please spread the word.

“by the beginnings of the twentieth century, the vision of the destruction of bourgeois society entertained by Western socialists had been shown to be of only partial relevance.
The working classes of Europe and America had indeed mounted militant assaults on their ruling classes. But in defeat they had also displayed their vulnerabilities to bourgeois nationalism and racialist sentiment. Elsewhere other realities had too come to the fore.
The shocks to Western imperialism, which in the previous century had appeared to European radicals to be at the margins of the world revolution, were by the 1930s occupying center stage.

why the world let the Mau Mau uprising be drowned in concentration camps.

from Mau Mau and Kenya: An Analysis of a Peasant Revolt by Wunyabari O. Maloba
“The colonial state, its agents, and African conservatives
adopted a very simplistic explanation of the Mau Mau movement. They looked at it as a ‘disease,’ as madness, as deviation from normal behavior.
The overseas left-wing radicals, and even the liberals, were equally uncomfortable with Mau Mau. In their writings they denounced British imperialism but failed to identify with the revolt.

“For the purposes of liberation, it is not necessary for Black radicalism to shadow or reiterate the world-system. There will be no proletarian armageddon with capitalism.
Centralism is anathema to revolutionary change for the courage, resolve, and intelligence necessary to defeat oppression issues from different historical and cultural sites.
I believe it is necessary for the Black Radical Tradition to remain focused upon the cultural legacies that have provided for its strengths. The Tradition is most powerful when it draws on its own historical experiences while resisting the simplifications of Black nationalism.

Rutendo Benson Matinyarare ~ AUTHOR ~ BEWARE THE BUTCHER OF THE GREAT LAKES.

Paul Kagame is the man who triggered the Rwanda/Burundi genocide,
after he as commander of the RPF (Rwandan Patriotic Front) used a Ugandan surface to air missile to shoot down a jet carrying the Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana and his Burundian counterpart Cyprien Ntaryamira.
This calculated move was designed to incite Hutus in both countries to massacre Tutsis and pave way for Kagame to launch a Tutsi counter attack on Rwanda, snatch power from the majority Hutus and replace them with a Tutsi hierarchy reminiscent of the colonial order.
