Black Lives Matter movement presses the world to confront colonial statues

Black Lives Matter movement presses the world to confront colonial statues 1

 

Protesters in the UK did what years of debate did not — tore down the statue to a slave trader. As the Black Lives Matter movement gains momentum, triggered by George Floyd's death in the US, countries are being pressed to confront their racist colonial history and the statues that commemorate that past. #CNN #CNNi #News

    Way to go 🇰🇪 Kenya
    We’re 👀

    • Kenya is crap

    • @Doris Kalangi Unfortunately your owed absolutely nothing. You should actually pay reparations to the Republican North for the loss of soldiers who fought in the Civil war and won for you to be free when the whole plant was useing slaves of all genders. Especially Jews. But this is what you’ve done with that freedom. Spit on them? There’s a movement called Blaxit that maybe you should look into. It’s a black organization for blacks to pay for them to move to to Africa for free! Everybody so far has returned though. It’s a nightmare they don’t want to relive. Your turning the entire planet against you right now. People are starting to hate you and become sick of the professional victim garbage. You have a better chance of getting into College than anybody because of the charity handout that is affirmative action that places you in College regardless of your capabilities. I would be insulted and ashamed if somebody though I was too stupid to achieve this on my own merit. But you will take anything! Collect food stamps that we pay for. Collect welfare that we pay for. We are tired of paying your way through life and getting spit on in return. Your gonna be on your own in a little while because I know my money isn’t going towards anything like that ever again. I’m done helping such a sad group of humans that whine and cry every 10 minutes about how they hate being black. No pride. No shame. No more. Sorry. I’m over it:)

    • CYBER GHOST LCDR : The Democratic Party is THE Party of Nazis and Racists.

      The Globalists are White Supremacists. racists, Nazis and eugenicists. Their useful idiots army fights on behalf of the whitest most elite Nazi scum on earth.

      The Globalists are Nazis. UNESCO is waging war on Jerusalem and the Jews.

      The Left allies itself with Radical Islamists who want Israel destroyed and Jews eradicated.

      The entire history of the Civil Rights movement was spearheaded by Republicans in the 1800’s and aggressively opposed by Democrats.

      The only reason people think the parties swtiched is because LBJ admittedly bought the votes with bribery by expanding the welfare state. The Democratic exploitation of the black community from that point forward is a tragedy of epic proportions.

      The Confederate statues offer proof of the nobility of our nation.

      During a time when slavery was the norm throughout the world, America was the only nation to wake up and put an end to it. America refused to allow the abomination of slavery to continue.

      We felt strongly enough about it to fight the Democrats who #resisted all efforts to end slavery. Because the Democrats insisted upon keeping their slaves, the Civil War broke out. It was the bloodiest war in our nation’s history.

      Great stride were made-in spite of Democrats #Resisting all efforts to free the black community and #Resisting all efforts to stop segregation and discrimination.

      By the 1990’s racial tensions had all but disappeared.

      Racial harmony does not serve the Democrat agenda. The Globalist Party (Democrats and RINOs) sought ways to destroy America from within.

      Imploding the economy, indoctrinating our youth to hate their own country, weakening our military and of course-starting a race war were just some of the tools at their disposal. The Party’s true leader, George Soros, is highly skilled in destroying countries and learned many skills as he served Hitler and betrayed his own people during the Holocaust.

      During the Obama reign the Globalist Left breathed new life into wars fought and won decades ago for the rights of women and minorities.

      Perhaps they were hoping to redefine the crisis, then take credit for “resolving” the imaginary discrimination and orchestrated chaos. They could declare themselves the “cool” anti-racist Party, especially since the half white President was “black.” They’d simultaneously re-brand the Right as the racist Party. The Globalist Left would revive the pain of racism in America while ignoring the fact that their “black” President was elected not once, but twice.

      The Big Lie is that somewhere along the line the Parties “switched.”

      The lie probably had its roots in LBJ’s showy “War on Poverty” that created the welfare state. He admitted his bribery with virulent racist rhetoric , As mentioned before when he signed off on the Civil Rights Act he said ” “I’ll have those ni**ers voting Democratic for 200 years.”

      The so-called switch is a sick lie and a form of mind control that couldn’t have happened without the help of the school and college swamps and the propaganda machine- MSM, CNN , etc

      The Big Lie

      It was Hitler who coined the phrase “The Big Lie” in his book, Mein Kampf touting the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

      Another trick out of Hitler’s playbook was for the DNC to cover their crimes and blame Hillary’s loss on the Russians. As mentioned previously, German-occupied Russia the Nazis used propaganda to blame the Communists for their atrocities against civilians.

      The Democrats are the racist Nazi Party.

      The “loving” Left cry out for diversity but attack black people for being conservatives. They label them as sellouts and Uncle Toms. But what could possibly be more of a sellout than to align yourself with the Party that has continually sought to suppress, rather than free and elevate black people?

      Some on the Left may wake up when they see this list. Others may wake up once they realize they’ve been conned by the Russia/Trump Collusion Hoax.

    King Leopold killed over ten million people in Congo after he turned its lands into his private property for rubber plantations

    • Stalin and Mao in combine killed over 100 million. Amin alone in Uganda killed over 2 million in one year.

    • Communist collective farming killed over 150 million in the last century.

    • sounds like trump killing 1000s in Raqqa and Mosul, and now killing 100000s in america with his virus.
      and giving cops the license to kill.

      This is the insanity of the left >>> British anti-racism protestors called for the destruction of Egypt’s Giza Pyramids on Sunday, after tearing down a statue of a slave trader in the city of Bristol and throwing it in the Avon river, CNN reported Monday.
      The pyramids have been among the most frequently discussed topics in the UK over the past several hours, inspired by controversy over who built them.Protesters tore down the statue of British slave trader Edward Colston on the second day of protests condemning racism in the UK, part of a response to the killing of George Floyd, an African American man, by a white policeman in the city of Minneapolis, USA.
      Colston was responsible for the enslavement and transfer of more than 80,000 people from Africa to the New World in the 17th Century, while working with the Royal African Company, according to CNN.Some then called for the destruction of the Egyptian pyramids in Giza, claiming that they were also built by slaves.
      The controversy surrounding the pyramids prompted Twitter users to begin sharing a news article published in the UK media 10 years ago.The article features an announcement by the Egyptian government, on January 11, 2010, of the discovery of the tombs of laborers who constructed the pyramids more than 4,000 years ago.
      At the time of the announcement, archaeologists said that the discovery supported evidence that the people who built the pyramids were not slaves, but rather were paid laborers. The laborers’ tombs, which were built of mud during the Fourth Pharaonic Dynasty, contained jars of beer and bread for the next life.
      At the time, head of the excavating team Zahi Hawass said the discovery showed that the pyramid builders were paid workers, not slaves.Hawass added that, “These tombs were built next to the pyramid of the king, which indicates that these people were not slaves in any way.”
      As the debate in Britain over the demolition of the pyramids raged, foreign archaeologists published a slide depicting records written by the pyramids’ builders, which confirmed that the pyramids were not built by slaves.
      UK Home Secretary Priti Patel told SkyNews that toppling the statue of Colston in Bristol was “utterly disgraceful” and “a distraction from the cause in which people are protesting about.” Meanwhile, earlier on Sunday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that anti-racism protests in his country were “subverted by thuggery.”

    As of 2019…

    At least 40 million people are victims of modern slavery worldwide – with nearly 25 million trapped in forced labour and about 15 million in forced marriages.
    *Almost three-quarters are female – and one in four a child – with modern-day slavery most prevalent in Africa followed by Asia and Pacific.
    *North Korea has the world’s highest rate of slavery, with about one in 10 people enslaved, followed by Eritrea (9.3%) Burundi (4%), Central African Republic (2.2%), Afghanistan (2.2%), Mauritania (2.1%), South Sudan (2%), Pakistan (1.7%), Cambodia (1.7%) and Iran (1.6%).
    *India is home to the largest number of slaves globally, with 8 million, followed by China (3.86 million), Pakistan (3.19 million), North Korea (2.64 million), Nigeria (1.39 million), Iran (1.29 million), Indonesia (1.22 million), Democratic Republic of the Congo (1 million), Russia (794,000) and the Philippines (784,000)….

      And even if that was true which it isn’t. It doesn’t change the fact that the left seems more preoccupied with tearing down statues than they are with confronting actual slavery whether be here in the US or abroad.

      Yep but they would probably be gunned down

    • The left tried this in 2019 with what 4 mass shootings in a row. Didn’t get response they wanted. So they did 4 black killings in a row. Notice not one mass shooting since or this year at all. Democrats organized to kill George Floyd infront of camera. With all the news about cop brutality you think 4 cops would do this if it wasn’t on purpose for a cause. People have layed on there sword for way less.

  6. How about the insurance company that insured the slave trade business that’s in London. Lloyd’s of London

    • Josey Wales first pay them what they are owed

    • That should tear down Buckingham Palace. Britain is estimated to have stolen £1500 trillion from its African and Asian colonies.

    • peter kreisler the difference is Romans built things, British Empire just stole. Britain owes its colonies an estimated 1500 trillion in stolen wealth.

    • Voice Of Reality I’ve been campaigning for reparation for years!! I’ll always put my voice out there! How do you suggest I ‘take it back’?

    • peter kreisler Rome did not capture Brits, buy and sell them for 500 years and build their nation on the back of their free labour. Time to educate yourself my friend . Not time for wise guy cracks it’s time for change.

    We can’t control how others think or act, but we can influence them with love, community, commitment and actions! If you truly care, be the change you wish to see. Don’t demand others to change first. You change! We can only control what we do. Be a light and guide others by your actions and with love. Work hard. Be honest. Show love to ALL men and women. Go volunteer to be a mentor to a child or young adult. Love is contagious.
    Violence and anger breeds more violence and anger.
    The Bible says “a kind word turns away wrath.” Most people are good. To allow a few bad people to dictate how we feel about an entire race or profession is not normal thinking. Stop allowing the media to keep you angry and emotional. They love it. It gets them ratings and clicks. If they truly cared, then where is the outrage over inner cities low graduation rates. The gangs infesting neighborhoods and keeping the citizens in fear. The high numbers of black on black murders in the double digits happening every single day! The high number of young people throwing their lives away to dropping out of school and drug abuse. The media doesn’t care about those people. It doesn’t generate ratings. They don’t care about you or me! Wake up! They want to sow seeds of racism and divide us!
    The media is manipulating the people for political reasons.
    Malcolm X knew this all too well. He said the media has the power to make the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent. He said the media controls the minds of the masses. Why allow them so much power over how you feel. They don’t care about us. They care about $$$.
    How many times has the media told you something that you later find out isn’t true. How many times in just the last 3 months has the media said the “experts” said this or that, to have the information flip and change days later. So why are you still hanging on them for knowledge and information? It’s pure Insanity!
    How long will you continue to let the rich elites who own the media to dictate to you how to feel. Telling you who your enemies are and who to trust. Who to vote for and who you should condemn.
    They have too much power because we gave it to them! The CCP has infiltrated our media for their own agenda. To divide and conquer! Please open your eyes. Seek truth. Do your own research and cross reference anything you hear or read.
    Let’s shake the system up and win this battle to deliberately brainwash us and create division for their own sinister agenda!
    More than ever we all need to unite and lift each other up.

  17. The world is starting to memorialize people who have lived their lives in thee most despicable way if they are killed unjustly.
    To me this seems to be the most concerning aspect of civilization right now within the western world. We glamorize killing each other, stealing from one another and so on. Yet, when someone who glamourized those very ideas is killed. We start protests & riots aimed at ending the very problems we ourselves produce.
