I love Octavia Butler's scifi books! Kindred was the hardest to read, though, because of the realistically horrible things the slaves went through. I wondered if this graphic version of her novel would make the pain easier to bear, but my hubby gave up in horror. The original book took awards, and I highly recommend it, but beware. Butler is such a good writer that she makes you hurt right along with her characters. (Her others are less brutal, and recommended as well!) #lifeofanauthor #pacificnwauthor #slavery #timetravel #blackauthors #bookreaders #booklovers #octaviabutler #kindred #scifibooks #prizewinning #femaleauthors

Mr. Magafe, The Libyan Warlord Who Feeds On Immigrants

The name Magafe literally means the one who never misses in Somali and that is what Somalis use to describe a Libyan warlord who has made a business out of kidnapping poor immigrants heading to Europe via the Sahara desert.

He waylays for immigrants in southern Libyan and has over the years built a network of freelancers said to be mostly Tuareg militias across the Libyan Desert snatching any immigrant crossing the Libyan border.

He then goes to illegally detain the immigran’ts until when they pay off a ransom to buy their freedom. Talk of slavery in the 21st century!

After he is paid a ransom, at least he is descent enough to take the immigrant’s across the desert to the coastline and hand them over to other human traffickers who charge them a certain amount of money to take them across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe via Italy.

Mr Magafe’s kidnapping business has grown so huge that it is said that he has a fleet of 4×4 vehicles, horses and even camels specifically bought to patrol the expansive Libyan Desert in search of immigrants.

He commands dozens of battle hardened-Tuareg militias who fought for the Libyan President Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and who are inhabitants of the desert themselves giving him an edge over the immigrants as his foot soldiers know every hiding place in the desert including the entire oasis where travellers rest during the hot humid day, which is the only location you can find a well or water source which in the desert means survival or death.

As a result of Mr. Magafe’s cruelty on the immigrants, it is believed hundreds if not thousands have died in Libya either in the hands of Magafe himself from torture and at times even assassinations.

If you thought that is cruel enough of Mr. Magafe wait until you hear what he does to beautiful immigrant women.
Survivors say any beautiful woman caught by Mr. Magafe naturally becomes his wife until when her family buys her off like a slave. His libido must be abnormally high since it is said that he sleeps with more than 4 or 5 women a day at times during the high season #slavery #libyaslavetrade #libya #kenyan

Human trafficking takes away your dignity, your opportunities, and your freedom—a basic right that so many of us often take for granted. Harry tells us what freedom means to him. 🎥 #SaturdaySnaps

This is what they think of women in certain parts of the middle east. Where is the international community to stop this. Slavery still exist. #photo #slavery #women #middleeast #muslim #sold #standup #getmad

The first edition of "The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience", appeared on December 15, 1962 in a single volume, of which about a third each was dedicated to North American African-American studies, and to Afro-Latin America. It then was published in a five volume series.
_____
In their introduction to Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience, co-editors Henry Louis Gates and Kwame Anthony Appiah describe W.E.B. DuBois’s half century campaign to publish an encyclopedia that would encompass the African diaspora. It appears below:
_____
"Between 1909 and his death in 1963, W E. B. Du Bois, the Harvard trained historian, sociologist, journalist, and political activist, dreamed of editing an "Encyclopaedia Africana." He envisioned a comprehensive compendium of "scientific" knowledge about the history, cultures, and social institutions of people of African descent: of Africans in the Old World, African Americans in the New World, and persons of African descent who had risen to prominence in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Du Bois sought to publish nothing less than the equivalent of a black Encyclopaedia Britannica, believing that such a broad assemblage of biography, interpretive essays, facts, and figures would do for the much denigrated black world of the twentieth century what Britannica and Denis Diderot"s Encyclopedie had done for the European world of the eighteenth century". _____

For those Black Muslims who don't know the history of the Arabs and the rise of Islam.
In activity as a place in human history the Arabs are basically an AD people. There is no BC activity of consequence that can be contributed to them. So if you want to follow a people who have just arrived recently into the human arena and adopt a religion that has only been 1400 years and discard the African culture and spiritual belief system that have been for millions of years, that's your choice but don't assume a second that your position will be regarded equally under their domination. @rootsconnected

@a_lallie_ thank you for this share.
Honestly I have never liked @FloydMayweather as he’s money-obsessed, arrogant, selfish and self-absorbed. He has a massive #FurCoat collection, has a pet tiger, has a recent photo on his page of him posing with somebody else’s captive white tiger and as we can see here, he also loves to assert his dominance over the animal kingdom by standing on slave elephants too 😒
_
Hey #MoneyMayweather - it’s a shame that all that cash you flash will never be able to buy you compassion and empathy for the suffering of others. If you learned to love others as much as you love yourself and your money, people may actually respect you.
_
#ElephantRides are cruel. Elephants spend their lives in chains, get deprived of food and get beaten with bullhooks in a process called #Phajaan to crush their spirits to force them to obey their human slavemasters and carry ignorant or heartless tourists around. If you go to places like #Thailand, please never have an #ElephantRide. If #Slavery is wrong for humans, then why is it an accepted norm for animals? Wrong is wrong irrespective of species. Elephants deserve better 🐘
