    Islamophobia, xenophobia and lack of accountability in the Atheist Community

    in Atheism

    Please join us Sunday 10AM CST as we discuss the hate crime that took place this week.  For those unaware, three Muslim students were murdered over an alleged parking dispute.  The murderer entered the home of the students and killed them execution style.  The media and police are hesitant to call it a hate crime.  The atheist community are attempting to distance themselves from this matter.  I am seeing 'No True Scotsman' fallacies everywhere. 


    I find it interesting that when it's a white person, they are judged as individuals. People are claiming that this domestic terrorist was mentally ill and a lone wolf.  However, people of color are judged as groups and made accountable for the actions of individuals.  This double standard has been prevalent in this community.


    We will discuss how the atheist community has created and cultivated a toxic environment.  We have been calling this community out about the Islamophobia, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.; yet, it has not been addressed.  The mainstream atheist organizations have ignored the warning signs and have even attempted to make excuses for the bigotry.


    We spoke about this matter extensively on our TwitterChat and you can find more details here.  We want to continue this much needed discussion.  There will b more discussion on this in the future.


    The dial in number is 310-982-4273 and press 1 to speak with the hosts.

    The Audacity of a Black Atheists to Speak about GOD! Part 1

    in Spirituality

    This episode is dedicated to my brothers and sisters of the Christian, Islamic, Jewish  and others faiths: 


    I examine why it very hard to discuss religion within the African American Community. I look at how this subject has became taboo. I examine how people express such emotionalism behind this subject through personal experience. I also go deep into what causes people xenophobia to discuss religious ideas different from theirs. I discuss the nonfactual evidence given in religion through stories, history etc...

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Here is an article taken from a News paper coming out of South Africa Yesterday. "Shackled, four men who allegedly stabbed Emmanuel Sithole to death at the weekend smiled at their loved ones, even sharing a joke, as they were led to the holding cells of Johannesburg's Alexandra Magistrate's Court.


    "They were laughing just like that as they walked away from killing my brother," wept Sithole's sister Thando Sithole.


    "They hunted him down like a dog. They killed him like a dog in the street. And now they laugh.''


    Speaking after Mthinto Bhengu, Sizwe Mngomezulu, Ayanda Sibiya and Sifundi Mzimela appeared in court, Thando Sithole was unable to contain her rage.


    "We want justice. We want them to get life. They must get life for taking a life. They must never taste freedom again."


    Sithole's younger sister, Jordina Masia, who was with Emmanuel when he was attacked, said she had pleaded with the men not to hurt him. "I begged. I cried. I asked them not to. They killed him because when they took his cigarettes without paying, Emmanuel confronted them, demanding payment. Just like that they killed him."


    A series of photographs in the Sunday Times chronicling the Mozambican trader's murder in Alexandra on Saturday continues to enrage South Africans.


    That rage, compounded by Monday night's shooting of a Zimbabwean couple in Alexandra, prompted the government to deploy hundreds of troops to the township and other xenophobia flashpoints, including in KwaZulu-Natal.


    Late last night, about 400 police, supported by heavily armed infantry soldiers in armoured vehicles, shut down large sections of Jeppestown, Johannesburg." With the greatest of scrutiny and disbelief I am watching as the Fall of African Unity begins

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    After weeks of killings in South Africa the African nations most affected have started to take actions against the Nation of South Africa.  Nigeria has called for a trade embargo against South Africa.  From The Barr News paper Kenn Ukaoha issued this statement from NANTS  "Unfortunately, we have not seen enough measures by the South African government either to intervene or halt this wanton looting or protect innocent lives of law abiding immigrants whose contributions to South Africa's political and economic prosperity cannot be overemphasised."


     The Nations of Africa are holding the President of South Africa responsible for supporting the violence through his reluctance to act against the Murderers and against Goodwill Zwethelini's inflamitory statements.  This small excerpt from an article by Tabia Princewill says, "Julius Malema of the opposition party to the ANC said that President Zuma and the South African state promoted a culture of violence and xenophobia which led to Black South Africans attacking migrants and foreigners." Africans from neighboring countries that came to assist the poor economy after the fall of the Apartheid Regime whom they blame for their own economic misfortune. 


    Of all the orginzations PAC headed by Chris Sankara is in full force in the streets protesting against the government, that has not done anything until this week to even try to quell the situation.  In the news today I saw masses of supportoers of the PAC orginization and others come together as one and confront the Zuma presidency and the officals of the Government in South Africa.  As Pan Africanist all over the planet are watching the movements of the Government and Zwethelini the supposed King of the  Zulu's, we are expecting Justice for the people murdered in the streest of South Africa in broad daylight.  Senseless Murder by the Mob is Anarchy

    An iconoclastic netcast that challenges the preconceived and misconceived notions of the culture in which we live. Using misdirection, shock and awe this matrix has been highly successful in capitalizing on the innate xenophobia of its adherants using that to its advantage. What we aim to accomplish is to point to the pathways out.
