    Decoy tactics sister,

    Nothing more.

    Expect a lot more of these types of decoy to appear in a variety of forms as support in the US grows for Robert Mugabe and his anti West land reforms, which if continued will end with African's all over the world gaining in pride and therefore, confidence, and prosperity and power and therefore, an unwillingly given, forced respect, but respect nevertheless, that is on our own terms and requires no pleading or appealing on our part, as opposed to this sham that passes for equality today.

    As long as you don't protest the fact that we are killing your brothers and sisters, and cry when we raise our flags and sing our anthems, then everything is cool, for now.

    The hope is that blacks in the US will be enraged at the blatancy and ill regard of these board games, what-have-you and that their focus will be diverted from the real issues that will affect them in the years to come, their very existence.

    Can you imagine, say, a million black man and woman march in support of Robert Mugabe and Zimbabwe, and in protest of US and European attempts to destabilise the continent?

    Whew...then you'd see some bowels begin to loosen.

    Decoy tactics sis, that's all they are, decoy tactics.


    Peace.......

    Regardless, the end result is exactly the same as if a white klu klux klan grand wizard nazi sympathiser, rosicrucian knight of malta created it, a loss of focus or misdirected focus; the objective of every good decoy.

    And don't think that just because a man is black or latino, that he is incapable of doing his own people harm, consciously, subconsciously or 'in good fun'.

    Blacks don't have the luxury of losing focus and that's what these games etc do.
    I mean, the NAACP was in on the focus on this game, and IMHO, that is not what these organizations should be working on.

    Now you look at the NAACP, and how they focus in on [and encourage others to do so] ghettopoly et al then read what NAACP president and CEO, Kweisi Mfume had to say about Robert Mugabe last year after the elections.


    http://www.naacp.org/news/releases/zimbabwe032602.shtml

    Mfume said:

    Where was the NAACP protest against injustice in Africa at the hands of the United States [the world record holder where undemocratic governmental behaviour is concerned] and its coat tail clutching European lackeys???

    Voicing the same disdain for a man [who is determined to complete his mission to stand up for the black man, and therefore woman, and vice versa], that the West [headed by the U.S] hypocritically do with much conviction when the U.S displays on a daily basis, hatred for African Americans and Native Americans.

    To understand my point, let me ask another question, where was the mass support from the black leadership of the time when Marcus Garvey got the ball rolling with Black Star etc?

    The so called heavy handedness was the arrest of opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, charged with attempting to assassinate Robert Mugabe, the man the West happen to love to hate.

    The charges stem from a videotape that was first aired in Australia.
    It showed a former Israeli intelligence agent allegedly discussing a plot to assassinate Mugabe with the MDC leader.

    The validity of the evidence is not the point, that is another issue [Tsvangirai claims he was set up, then why did he deign to involve himself in a discussion of this type, knowing full well that a man in his position could well be targeted in that regard?, he didn't become opposition leader in a national election by acting without forethought].

    Now if the authorities in the US had reason to believe the same thing and had that kind of evidence of a plot to assassinate President Bush, what do you think they'd do?

    Where was the official NAACP complaint by Mfume on the deliberate spread of AIDS in Africa as the mounting evidence attests, or on the same exact strain of Ebola turning up six years and thousands of miles apart, the same exact strain, no mutations, none.
    Where was the NAACP complaint on the fact that U.S imperial strategies account for 4 million African deaths or the U.S financed proxy wars in:

    The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
    Sudan
    Liberia
    Burundi
    Rwanda
    Somalia
    Uganda
    Ethiopia/Eritrea Congo/Brazzaville,
    Algeria.
    Angola and Sierra Leone.

    Are African's not 'coloured'?, although I subscribe to Malcom's view that whites are more coloured than we are.

    What?, you think if you side with whites, they'll be nice??

    Do you really think the West's real concern is that democracy is the order of the day in Africa, you think they give a stuff about Africans?

    No, it's because he's doing what African leaders should have done since the 50's, heck he's doing what African leaders should have done when Europeans came sniffing for African slaves to take 'home' to treat in an appalling manner.

    How long have African Americans been trying to be accepted in the United States and how much ground do you feel blacks have truthfully made in achieving acceptance? [acceptance being defined as true equality]

    Nazis in the army, racists in the police force, in the judicial system, in the media etc, blacks beaten to near death caught on camera and nothing in the way of Justice, nothing!

    What do you think would happen if Kobe Bryant were caught on camera actually raping that white girl?

    The US, the UK, anywhere there are whites, you'll never be accepted because to truly accept you means to truly tackle injustice and to tackle injustice means to stop the theft and in turn, a loss of financial profit and therefore power, therefore control or the means by which control of people can be attained, and those behind the scenes are not likely to do that anytime soon, they don't even like that fact that you are breathing air from the same planet as they.

    Anyway, as usual I digress lol.


    Peace...
