  • They’ve enslaved millions of Africans
  • They’ve raped thousands of African women
  • They’ve castrated thousands of African men
  • They’ve killed millions of Africans

They’ve made us “Afro-Arab (although I don’t like to be called Afro-Arab) hate ourselves…now internalised anti-blackness has manifested in us. Many “Afro-Arabs” in Africa and diaspora hate identifying as black and would rather be called Arab. So many of my Swahili family members think that they’re Arab and not black and that our Swahili culture is thanks to the Arabs

I’m a Congolese Swahili (my Swahili ancestors came from Zanzibar to Congo) and let me list a few things the Swahili-Arabs did in the Congo:

  1. Butchered Congolese men, women and children
  2. Rape Congolese women
  3. Stole from our land
  4. Enslaved us

oh wow

they don’t teach about the arab slave trade at all in the US.

The ankhs don’t talk about it. I guess they don’t know. Or it would conflict with their religious beliefs or lack there of.

Sophia Doe, above, sits with her grandchildren while watching the arrival of an Ebola burial team, who have come to take away the body of her daughter for cremation on Friday in Monrovia, Liberia.
Medical authorities say the bodies of Ebola victims pose a significant health threat and therefore must be cremated, but the burial of loved ones is an important tradition in Liberian culture, making the removal of infected bodies for cremation even more traumatic for surviving family members.

But you got scum out there making jokes still

😔

Damn….

My heart mourns for this mother & her grand children. 

Poor babies..
