I purchased a diamond 2 or 3 years back as I was engaged to be married (things later didn't work out). After deciding on the cut, color, and clarity (quality markers) of the diamond I wanted, I told the jeweler I didn't care where he got the diamond from as long as it wasn't Africa. He told me some diamonds are mined in South America and Australia, so I said make sure it came from one of those places. I refuse to buy a diamond that comes out of Africa! My take on the whole thing is that every diamond that a Euro sells is a "conflict diamond". How can they murder our ancestors for their land, then parlay a TRILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE, and then label a few diamonds mined by African slave labor or those on "conflicted land" are "conflict diamonds"? They have no right to sell them and so any diamond a Euro distributes and sells out of Africa is conflicted given it is complete disrespect to us as a people!! That would be like the Arabs succeeding in murdering or committing genocide against all the Jews in Palestine and then selling the coastal Dead Sea Salt creating a trillion-dollar empire in the process. Lastly, about the movie "Blood Diamonds", it is just another attempt by psychopathic Euros to "analyze the victim". They created those conditions in Africa, and now they want to make a movie where the savior needs to be a Euro man to civilize things with savage Africans. It is utterly disgusting in my opinion. The second thing it does is remove the attention from South Africa, as the movie's plot is the West African country of Sierre Lione (if I am not mistaken). Over 90% of the world's diamonds come from South Africa controlled by DeBeers, a Jewish company. We seriously need to manifest a cultural consciousness to acknowledge and behave as the same people on the Continent and in the Diaspora as Americans coordinate efforts with sub-continental Europeans. We need to recognize how Euros are typically unable to acknowledge their guilt, and so will psychopathically twist things around in order to appear as if they are addressing real issues.
