Yes the topic of this thread is "Re-Colonization as we sleep", because that is what we (Black people as a collective people) are doing as our enemies are encircling us and preparing to destroy us. People open your eyes and look at what is going on around you. They are coming again...yet STILL we have no way to respond to them. Just as we had no way to combat them 120 years when the colonization of the African continent began; nor did we have any way to defend ourselves when they were enslaving our people (with the help of many sell-outs on our part); as we had no way to retaliate against the Arabs and their murderous campaigns to Islamicize 1/4 of the African contient and 2/3 of her people. Any way... Does any body know what is going on RIGHT NOW in Ivory Coast? This is something that is getting very little news in the U.S media (which is not surprising when one considers the traditional way which the media has treated any topic on Africa and her people) The French have just sent fighter jets to destroy all military war planes held by the Ivory Coast government. With this act of aggression—supposedly a response to government strikes on French positions in the country—which is being stepped up with bringing in more troops (the French already have 4000 troops, alongside 6000 U.N "peace keepers") to occupy the region. The French have been very blatant when and unapologetic, when it comes to it's intervening in the affairs of it former African colonies. They also have troops in Sierra Leone and other parts of Western Africa. http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/africa/11/06/ivorycoast.ap/index.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/3989567.stm Then, there is the issue with the British and their own machinations across the continent. They have tried to assassinate President Mugabe of Zimbabwe or destabilize his regime, and they were certainly responsible for the attempted coup in Equatorial Guinea. Now, we have British Prime Minister Tony Blair—who was over in Ethiopia last month, on his "African Commission" initiative—where he was spewing forth his own imperialist WMD (i.e. Weapons of Mass Deception) on the ever naive African populace. Along with promises of "Aid" and loans (which both keep Africa poor and dependent), he was laying out his plans (and those of his fellow European and American imperialist nations) to send troops into Africa and create base over their. This is even going to make be a top priority in the G8 summit, for crying out loud!! Those troops will go into the continent under the pretext of "stabilizing Africa". But we all know that what this really is…is re-colonization. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3725578.stm When are we going to understand—when are we going to get it through our thick collective skull—that Whites (whether European, Arab or other) are our implacable and mortal enemies. To copy and modify the quote made by the fictional time traveling character Kyle Resse, in the movie The Terminator: **White people are out there. They can't be bargained with! They can't be reasoned with! They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. AND THEY ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT STOP, EVER, UNTIL WE ARE DEAD!!!!** So, Black people need to WAKE THE F#%K UP...smell the coffee, read the writing on the wall and stop this b.s of thinking that we can be integrated with Europeans or form "coalitions" with other "peoples of color". The problems faced by Blacks are that faced by an entire race. Those faced by the other "minorities" are those face by ethnic groups, NOT by a race!! There is a BIG difference. Which is often (and intentionally) confused by the media, in order to equate and diminish the historically evil treatment and suffering of Blacks at the hands of Whites, with that of these other groups whose "struggles" are nowhere near on the scale as ours.
