    Please watch this video before proceeding.


    The Western media has perpetuated that Sudan's problems are essentially Arabs attacking Africans.

    In a 2007 interview, Omar al-Bashir, President of Sudan, stated "Talk of Arabs killing blacks is a lie. The government of Sudan is a government of blacks, with all different ethnic backgrounds ... We're all Africans, we're all black."

    What do ya'll think of this? Has the West been lying to us the whole time?

    I don't believe

    one word this President is saying. There has been an influx of Sudanese into my city, and they will tell you that conditions at home were tragic.

    Who did they say is responsible for the tragedy? The government? An extremist militia?

    I guess no one cares about what may or may not be going on in Sudan, even though it may be significantly hurting Black people.

    I agree.
    Most are not interested unless there is something in it for them.

    Plus makes them realize that we have it much better here than and that we hurt our own morethan anyone ever has.

    yes the media has been lying,there have been posts on Destee about the blacks in northern Sudan. my guess is something to do over resources. and or land,like every other war on the planet.
    my guess would be, that the government wants the land,and resources that the southerners live on. my guess would be that Arabs ,whites or maybe Chinese are the buyers for whatever it is they (Sudanese Northerners) want,and that the government of The Sudan will profit immensely .

    Interesting.

    I can't remember the exact web address, but I read a blog yesterday where Gaddafi had been asked to get Arabs to assist in developing Southern Sudan.

    His response was basically that they (Arabs) wouldn't help unless Southern Sudan was going to be Islamized.
