    Recent violence against Afrikan immigrants in South Africa are escalating and being labeled by some as xenophobia, as Afrophobia by others. Some are calling for a boycott of South African products and media outlets. Meanwhile, it seems as the western mainstream media is rather quiet about these atrocities as the white nationalists in SA are preparing for a military takeover of the government. Thoughts?

    I'm going to be cliche and state 'The Only Solution Is A Real Afrikan Revolution', that is to say Pan Afrikan Unity at home and in the Diaspora because the stage is being set for Hillary 2.0 and the resurgence of white power, globally, in the latest Scramble For Afrika.

    Years Ago when I first look at the situation it was being fomented by the Zulus.
    In some sense it is tribalism....or a way of balkanizing Azania.
    Much the way they tried to do in Nigeria with the Biafran war and today's Boko Haram.
