    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I love watching the African Animal Documentaries. It really doesn't matter what African Animal is being showcased, but i especially love the predators! You can find these types of programs on Animal Planet, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, etc.

    I've often wondered, how is it that white men and women get the lucrative job of hosting these programs, when surely ... the Black Man and Woman have lived with these animals longer, are more familiar and concerned for the animal's well-being. I mean, it's white men that have historically killed these same animals, for fun and sport. I don't believe that's been documented amongst our people. Anyway ... i just think those who have lived with, closest to the animal, might know it best.

    But it's always white people hosting these programs about African Animals.

    I use to believe it was because African Sisters and Brothers, would have an accent, and they didn't want the accent ... but that's not true ... because they have many white show hosts, with strong accents. Remember the crocodile dude, that got killed by the stingray? There goes that theory of mine.

    So what's really going on?

    How is it, that the African Man and Woman ... The Black Original People ... get completely left out of this ... except as guides through the forest, as they know them best, or as mules, to carry equipment, and even as their early warning system ... to protect them, warn them, alert them ... of potential trouble from the very animals they seek to showcase.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Wassup wit it?

    :heart:

    Destee,

    #1. Taken as a metaphor.

    White folks believe that they are not only 'masters' of the universe, but that they are the masters of all that they survey....(meaning whatever *literally* that they see.) including LIFE itself.

    #2.

    They own the major media outlets.

    At least YOUR'E asking questions.


    ROARIN......

    i'm still mad about this ... all these years later

    they have the Africans all in the back, finding the animals, scouting them, doing the work ... while they are in front of the camera, talking

    they've devastated the planet ... killed most things to extinction for sport ... then parade themselves as the concerned ones ... amazing

    'Cause it's there TV program.

    We're too truthful that we are hard at discerning truth. White folk say that they play a fair game, but our eyes don't lie.

    If Black folk want money with no strings attached--well--the White man ain't the one to ask.
