As white people from Russia wage war on white people in the Ukraine, and white people in both Europe and the United States care about the event unfolding – potentially plunging the world into another pointless world war – one black writer at CNN is mad we aren’t focusing our attention on Africa.

Moky Makura is the executive director of Africa No Filter a group working to shift stereotypical and harmful narratives within and about Africa through storytelling and community building. She wrote for CNN this piece below, which basically states: white people may be dying in the Ukraine, but what does this have to do with Africans?

[Media coverage of Ukraine shows it’s time to rethink what we know about Africa, CNN.com, March 4, 2022]:

“It’s very emotional for me because I see European people with blue eyes and blonde hair being killed.” These were the words of Ukraine’s Deputy Chief Prosecutor, David Sakvarelidze, during a recent BBC interview about the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

It wasn’t so much what he said, it was more what was implied; that not all lives have equal value. And that idea — the belief that some races are superior to others — is a fundamental principle of racism. It’s alarming to me that Sakvarelidze was left unchallenged during his interview.

As a Black, African woman without the benefit of blue eyes or blonde hair, it’s been equally emotional to see the number of racist and ignorant comments in the coverage on Ukraine that have passed unchallenged by the interviewers and media platforms that have aired them. CBS, Aljazeera, France’s BFM TV and ITV have all reported the invasion in ways that illustrate deep bias, informed by a belief system that screams of an old-world, White-led, order.

ITV News correspondent Lucy Watson on ITV reporting back to the studio summed up the collective hypocrisy and underlying narrative that the Ukrainian war has exposed when she said: “The unthinkable has happened…this is not a developing, third-world nation; this is Europe!”

According to the narrative she believes, “unthinkable things” happen only in “third world nations” (now an outdated and derogatory term, someone should tell her), and that narrative is perpetuated by the type of stories she and many like her, have heard about the continent.

In Africa, it’s the stories of conflict in Ethiopia, insurgency in Mozambique, election violence in Uganda, and the recent coups in Mali, Chad, Guinea, Sudan, Burkina Faso and Guinea Bissau. But it’s clear that far too many are not paying attention to them because the people in these stories are not rich or from the Global North.

It’s the reason why the ‘unthinkable things’ that happen in places like Africa are typically reported in terms of issues, numbers and trends — rather than the people, the emotions and the lives destroyed. In Africa our stories tend to offer simplistic analysis that lacks context and nuance, and prioritizes headline-grabbing proclamations, like this one from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres about an “an epidemic of coup d’états” in response to the six coups in five out of 54 African countries over an 18-month period.

These examples have shown us that global media is complicit in perpetuating racist narratives, by not encouraging diversity in its newsrooms and giving an unrestricted platform to reporters and influential spokespeople with implicit biases that are left unchallenged. But rather than dwelling on this, I want to share some of the facts that should make us all rethink the traditional and stereotypical ways we dismiss non-White, non-rich countries and their people.
The traditional world order is undergoing a dramatic shift, driven by Covid-19, China, Russia, and movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter. The new world order is providing an opportunity for the world to rethink the little they know about the rest of the world.

By 2050, Nigeria will overtake the United States as the world’s third-most-populous country with a population of 400 million people. That’s one reason enough to pay attention. Africa’s population is growing rapidly and experts predict it will account for half the world’s people growth in the next two decades.

This means that more than a quarter of the world’s population will be on just one continent — Africa. The thought that the world will be overrun by Africans (no blue eyes or blonde hair here) will be an uncomfortable idea for some people, especially if they are unaware of the roughly 125,000 millionaires, 6,200 multimillionaires, 275 centimillionaires, and 22 billionaires that exist on the continent today.

Indeed, a report by the University of Southern California in 2019, highlighted how poorly Africa is depicted in the US. It also revealed that Americans seldom see mentions of Africa or Africans on TV entertainment shows or in the news.
When they do, the portrayals are often negative and stereotyped. According to the report, most mentions of Africa (43%) appeared on national or local news and tended to be ‘hard’ news stories which often fed the stereotype. After politics (32%), crime received the most mentions (16%), while business and the economy accounted for just 8% of news coverage.

Over 60 research papers, reports, books, academic journals that we analyzed from the year 2000 written on Africa in the media told us that poverty, conflict, corruption, disease and poor leadership were the five frames through which most stories are told about Africa.

This persistent portrayal of a single story is the reason why over the years, Africans have fought back with hashtags like #TheAfricaTheMediaNeverShowsYou and #SomeoneTellCNN over a 2015 CNN report describing Kenya as a “hotbed of terror,” for which it later amended. And organizations like Africa No Filter, which set out to shift stereotypical narratives about Africa, were created. It’s the reason why the Twittersphere erupted recently when journalist Alan Macleod put together his greatest hits of racist coverage of the Ukraine invasion — thank you, Alan!

ORDER IT NOW

Contrary to what negative media portrayals might have you believe, Africa actually has some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. For example, to most of the world, Rwanda is synonymous with its 1994 genocide. But with an average GDP growth predicted of 6.7 between 2021-2025, it is in the top five of the fastest-growing economies alongside India. Rwanda has been able to attract foreign direct investment and is one of the easiest places to do business in Africa (after Mauritius) according to a World Bank index. This means Rwanda and countries like Seychelles, Mauritius, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Kenya are worth considering as potential destinations for investment, not just development dollars.

Wait… in 18-month period, there were coups in 10 percent of African nations? Talk about political stability on display in post-colonial African!

Even when two white nations are waging war on one another, we must put aside the thought of white people dying unnecessarily and ask ourselves, what does this have to do with Africans and our glorious future teeming with a black planet (due to out of control population explosions in Africa)?

After all, Star Trek has already assured us interplanetary space travel isn’t possible because of African-Americans like Elon Musk, but all due to the scientific contributions of blacks (Hidden Figures), who will one day make possible Stacey Abrams being the President of United Earth.

Until then, we must put aside any consideration of the wanton loss of white life on either the Russian or Ukrainian side and ask ourselves, “but of Africans?”

    Black blabber mouth lives matter… I remember the good old days when the only thing one ever heard or read about apefrica was in a national geographic article.

  2. African Americans don’t consider themselves to be our fellow human beings.

    At this point the feeling is mutual, but it was not so for most of my adult life, nor for most White Folks (as far as I can tell).

    At one time stories like this would outrage me, but now I shrug. That’s what African Americans are like, and no point trying to prove anything or win them over.

    But I sure wish most White Folks would share my attitude. We’d move forward quickly if that were so.

  3. HT says:

    Yet, most white people still believe we can have a society and culture where blacks have significant influence. They refuse to accept that blacks only care about protecting black interests.

  4. Wokechoke says:

    It has much to do with the Black/Jewish/Hispanic/LBGT coalition that installed Joe “I’m Irish honestly I am” Robinette Biden* against the white male majority. Good luck recruiting an army of competent white men to fight the Russian military under a leader who doesn’t represent his own ethnicity and folk.

    *Biden as a family name is English. The ancestry is paternally Anglo. His mother had a great great Irish grandfather. He is Catholic but so was Henry V or James II and Charles II. Robinette is also clearly a French patronymic.

    Biden does not command the loyalty of white men. The men who would fight such a titanic war. Putin appears to be commanding the loyalty of Russians so far.

    Deep State will need a Republican with white men voting overwhelmingly for whoever they choose, and they will, to prosecute this war against Russia.

  5. Rooster13 says:

    I don’t think the affirmative action hire realizes that the MSM tries to downplay black violence at all costs, even on the world stage; lest Whitey realize they’re a dangerous species. Thus, TrueCrime TV, ABC 20/20, and The News, will all still continue to focus on White violence ad nauseam.

    There’s a reason the world takes note of the fighting between Ukraine and Russia. These two nations produce something more valuable than millions of unneeded Africans. They are among the largest grain exporters in the world. Grains are what the UN distributes to emaciated fly covered Africans when they have nothing to eat.

    The World Food Program has taken notice and is running ads for donations using the plight of Ukrainian refugees need for food assistance to raise money because compassion fatigue has set in among donor countries over hunger in Africa. That is the norm. It is unusual in Europe however so the WFP is hoping people will donate to feed Ukrainian refugees so they can divert the money to pay for the soaring costs of wheat, corn etc resulting from the disruption of grain production in Ukraine and Russia.

    Since the UN and NGO charities have budgets and with inflation, particularly for fertilizers oil, grains and shipping costs, reducing the amount of food they can actually buy and send to Africa, the real story will be that millions of surplus Africans are likely to starve in the coming months and the world will just not have the food available to prevent it. The good news is Nigeria will be very unlikely to have a population of 400 million in 2050. It may actually shrink between now and then if fertilizer and fuel costs reduce global food production.

    If I knew for a fact all donations would absolutely go to help Ukrainian refugees, I might consider it – but the odds of that are basically zero. Most, if not all worldwide and national charities are nothing but scams and grifts anyway.

    You can’t say that necessarily. Without Black Americans, the NFL/NBA wouldn’t exist. White Americans don’t care for hockey and baseball anymore. Say what you can say about Joe Montana, Tom Brady, etc., they would be nothing without Jerry Rice, Willie McGinest and other Black stars.

    The civil rights puppeteers like ACLU, etc. are to blame for this.

  17. This idiot doesn’t admit that all the stereotyping of Africa and Africa she bemoans is true, but only becomes prevalent and entrenched once colonial powers pulled out or were overthrown. Rhodesia was a bastion of agriculture and industry, capable of feeding the continent. Once it became Zimbabwe, dictator and plutocrat Robert Mugabe reduced it to economic and war torn rubble during his 37 year stint as supreme ruler.

    South Africa was able to sustain productive agriculture, create cutting edge oil from coal technology and produce the most formidable military on the continent, all funded by the white minority taxpayers who supported the blacks, whilst leveraged with international sanctions. The black majority has turned South Africa into a food importer dependent on foreign aid and turned South African cities into crime ridden dystopias.

    We have come to expect civilized countries to act civilized, so when killing breaks out, yes, we’re taken aback.

    By the same token, we expect savages, wherever they live, to kill each other with guns, knives, machetes, or anything else they can put their hands on. They are just being themselves and for them this is “normal.”

They can stop begging for handouts from Americans any day now. No more feed the world needed.

    Ukraine commentary is definitely over the top in trying to pull on heartstrings. Fortunately I’m a cold and calculating white man that thought it was their battle and we should let them fight it out without the stage lighting. Maybe someone can enlighten me as to under what authority sno bidet is allowed to unilaterally throw billions of dollars to a country he once considered too corrupt, at least until his son was paid? Why won’t any congress critter have the guts to demand accountability for this reckless war spending? At least take it away from another program.

    “Good luck recruiting an army of competent white men to fight the Russian military under a leader who doesn’t represent his own ethnicity and folk.”

    I think you are exactly right. The military is daily demonstrating that it has no respect for White men. I advise that everyone finish their hitch and leave. They should not reenlist if White, unless they have only a few years to go.

    When you spoke of the leftist’s coalition as Black/Jewish//Hispanic/LBGT, you probably should have included White females. Too many suburban women vote against even their own husbands. If they had sons in the military, they might vote against them too. I remember being in the military, and thinking that risking death to fight foreign enemies in a foreign land made little sense, as the worst enemies of our freedom and our way of life were domestic.

Guess they forgot to mention that anywhere from 70-95% of the entire growth from the very beginning has been due to the direct investment and involvement of China. It alone has built over 80% of the current infrastructure of the nation, built their entire Vision City housing for their middle class, and has sunken trillions of dollars into that nation. ….. Blacks built Rwanda just like they built South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Bring back the old white teams and game. Blacks were welcome and contributed greatly, but before they dominated everything about the game, it was much better.

  49. If [Moky’s] complaint is attention paid to a story serves to reinforce negative stereotypes, then that’s just a general indictment of the “news” business. The reporters misrepresent everything, except for last night’s ballgame scores (and even that I’m not so sure of). “The world’s most dishonest people.” Trump was 100% right.

    I’m sick and tired of the reporters characterizing public education as being “underfunded”, i.e. taxpayers are cheapskates. Public school funding is currently at record levels, unnecessarily helped along after the trillion dollars or so that the USG recently kicked in under the guise of virus relief. Still, it’s never enough.

    Later this month, (early) voting begins on a $1.7B bond whopper to benefit the Guilford County (Greensboro, NC) School District. That’s on top of the $300M voters gave it not even two years ago. A county commissioner pointed out, We spent $900,000 on a study to find out what the schools’ needs are – so of course we are going to listen to that study. Naturally, the reporter framed that grotesquely wasteful expenditure in the sentimental form of attributing it to a necessary game of catch-up after decades of underfunding.

    Africa was (and much if it is still) in the stone age until parts of it were civilized by European colonization.

    Since then, (((liberal communists))) have successfully pressured for it to be turned back over to negroes.

    We have seen how that worked out in Rhodesia.

    (about like Haiti after the negroes took over in 1804.)

    The same is now happening in South Africa as described in this interesting commentary:

    (((They))) are trying to turn the USSA into Africa and turn it over to negroes. The mayor, police chief, and DAs of many US cities are now negroes. There are more and more negroes in the Federal Government. We will have a negro president again after Joe is removed. Incessant propaganda shows negroes in numbers and competency way beyond reality and promotes miscegenation.
    BRA will change from America run for just the benefit of blacks to America run BY blacks as well as for blacks.

    So what?

    Of course, if there were non-stop coverage of the ongoing wars in Africa, this African-in-America would be throwing a tantrum about the news making blacks look a bunch of pathological killers. And this is one of the many reasons why blacks are not welcome to the party: no matter what the story, all they can do is chant: “Racism-Racism-Racism!”

    It’s like listening to some slightly demented four year old who constantly repeats their favorite four letter word and thinks they are clever.

    If this African-in-America thinks coverage of the Ukraine War is so unbearable, then he might emigrate to any of the numerous black run countries in Africa and do his teleprompter reading from there. He would quickly find that Africans-in-Africa are far less likely to put up with his tantrums.

  61. A mere 150 years ago, sub-Saharan Africa was largely in the Mud Age (Africans-in-Africa rarely built with stone). The exceptions were in a number of European enclaves along the coasts and whatever impact Islam had here and there. White-run South Africa, of course, was building a modern civilization since the 17th century.

    Today, solely because of White people, Africans-in-Africa have the potential of moving into the 21st century. And what do they do with that potential? Trash their cities and then run their mouths, blaming some amorphous force called “racism” for their own failures. This is doubly so for Africans-in-America.

    An objective commentator might observe that the African-at-CNN is still seeing the world through the miasma of the jungle. That old demon “racism” is responsible for laying low cities from Detroit to Johannesburg.

    It’s what happens when civilized people abdicate control.

    Wake up, YT, wake up.

    the suspect waited 20 minutes in the parking lot for her to come out.

    For the murderer’s sake, I hope he can prove that he was busy, during those 20 minutes, with matters that did not involve planning to kill her.

    The article also mentions that the victim and the rapper were high school sweethearts. While I oppose public education in general, I oppose co-ed schools in particular, especially for teens whose only purpose to show up at school is to take in the social scene.

    How typical. Good paying, local government bridge tender job goes to affirmative action hire (incompetant). Mother-in-law is supervisor (nepotism), and both lie to cover an act of negligence (both criminally culpible). BOTH should be sentenced to prison!

    We absolutely cannot have that. Just support Ukraine. Don’t question anything. Putin is killing innocent babies and blowing up hospitals because??????? A red flag for this entire thing is soros and Klaus Schwab calling for putins assassination. It’s as if he’s standing in their way. As everybody annoints zalensky as the second coming of christ, nobody looks a little deeper into his background, how he came to power, the atrocities he’s committed, and the fact he supports the one globalist economy. Even fox News is on board with this ( except tucker). Notice how any voice of dissent is immediately shut down and labeled an agent of putin. It’s astonishing how far America has fallen in such a short time. They accuse Russia of having a one sided media while at the same time doing the exact thing theure accusing Russia of doing. I know I’m all over the map with this. Guess what I’m saying is something hasn’t seemed right about this from the start. I’ve felt it in my gut and that thing never steers me wrong. All the more reason to keep preppin

    Without Black Americans, the NFL/NBA wouldn’t exist.

    And yet it did… for so long, too.

    What wouldn’t have happened, is exactly what did happen.

    But it is more popular today than ever.

    Face it, white America doesn’t have “hip edge”. Look at hockey. Most people don’t watch hockey. Even white Americans don’t care for the sport, yet they watch NBA/NFL.

    Remember a short-lived series called The Good(e?) Family? Ostensibly poking fun at Woke people – sample humour: “It’s all right to use the car, as long as you feel guilty about it”. In fact, slandering White, Christian conservatives by making them look creepy, with heavy hints of incest in an episode where young girls promise their fathers to remain virgins until marriage.

    There was an oafish son named Ubuntu, which they pronounced “You-bun-too” instead of “Oo-boon-too”, the joke being that they adopted an orphan from Africa, and to their horra! it turned out to be a White Afrikaner baby.

    The series only lasted a few (less than 6) episodes. I guess the Woke audiences were not amused.

  75. Had we experienced a better relationship with American Negros we might be more inclined to look to Africa with fond regard.
    The realities of Africa, population growth suggest Africa is an emerging foreboding presence/ episode rather than a nation to cheer and embrace.
    Sorry.

    I used to look at those pictures and wonder how embarrassing it would be for their descendants to see these pictures in a glossy magazine, treated as an anomaly or a historical curiosity by their clearly intellectually superior (white) betters.

    Later, when I was older, I realized these idiots would never waste good welfare money on fucking National Geographic.

    Who Cares About White People Dying in Russian/Ukrainian Conflict, What Does This Have to Do with Africa?”

    Great, White people should ignore Africa completely. Who cares about some Black people dying in some African conflict, What does this have to do with Europe?
    No more aid money, no refugee agencies, no medicine san’s frontiers…let black people take care of themselves.
    Yet he have idiotic White people going to help Africans, who as a population, hate Whitey.

    Also I have seen many many comments from some Muslims gloating with glee that now Europeans are suffering what Iraqis had suffered.

    Look at who draws crowds.

    Look at the rap concerts that a lot of White people go to and the Air Jordan sneakers a lot of white guys, even some 60-yr. old white men wear, etc.

    Whites don’t have that.

    Gore 2004———-A few years back,i reluctantly went to the local mall.My wife told me what she wanted and what jewelry store had it.Naturally,i only half paid attention to the details. I had already searched 3 stores. The nest jewelry store on my right had an amazing selection of “bling” Dollar signs,wearable alarm clocks,logging chain necklaces, rhinestone moneyclips that lit up,etc. A young black man was examining the other side of the case.He was wearing a puzzled look when we made eye contact.I just shrugged and told him that i was shopping for a 25 anniversary present. He Left. P.S. Men evolved selective attention as a marriage survival mechanism. If we had to actually hear everything wifey said our heads would explode.

    She will eventually suffer a violent sexual assault at the hands of the boys “people”.
    And I seriously doubt it will change her.

  83. Another reason to hate these dingle berry
    black garbage ape devil simian trash. they have the audacity
    atrocity to comment in what white people can and or can’t feel
    they have the nerve to say to caucasian people that they can not
    have feelings for their own people mean while other races like
    yellow, brown people can have feelings for their own people
    while these black bastards can have feelings for their own idiot people
    that commit crimes every where in the world an see them as martyrs and
    I find it ironic that these morons are so out of touch from actuality, reality
    ever since they existed on this earth that they think one race, ethnicity has
    too take care of their d**bass forever.
