Recent killings in black communities worldwide, especially in South Sudan, reveal black on black crime is becoming a nuisance even in our backyards here in America and in 2014, "the death tolls are huge and the individual incidents gruesome. One estimate says nearly 10,000 people have been killed in South Sudan in a month of warfare, while in neighboring central African Republic combatants in Muslim vs Christian battles have reported a significant amount of children casualties). The articles say that "compared to decades past, Africa and its people are suffering from fewer conflicts today, but several recent outbreaks are cause for concern" and I say "were people of African ancestry always like this? What happened to Ubuntu, or peace chants of the African people? Or could it have been the case of who gave these people the ammunition and weapons of mass destruction and these weapons ending up in the wrong hands? We know women have played a huge role in bringing solutions, such as the Aba women riot in 1929. However, could the approach they used be considered peaceful? Should it be used today or should explore other traditional practices used?

 

We believe certain African traditional practices can be applied in our communities today and used to deal with conflicts today .i.e., Bokom-Haram, South Sudan situations. Black on Black crime in America, African American and Black immigrant relationships, relationships among our kind here in America. What do you think?
