    Did the Rev Al stay up a bit too late overnight, watching Steve Kornacki at the Big Board? The question arises because this morning, Sharpton made a statement so strange that it made you wonder about his state of mind. On Morning Joe, asked by Joe Scarborough to comment on the meaning of Georgia having voted "to elect America’s first black vice president in November, and . . . the Democratic party’s first black senator after four years of Donald Trump," Sharpton responded: "It means that this country has really come back unto showing that we’re not going backwards to...

    In a daily report dedicated to news updates and guidance for county employees fighting the coronavirus, an Oregon county in the Portland area said it was creating a safe "grounding space" for minority staff to escape a predominant “whiteness.” The April 5 "situation report" from the Multnomah County Office of Emergency Operations Center announced that the "Emergency Operations Center Equity Officer is hosting a grounding space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) employees to share, heal, connect, and get grounded in a space that is not dominated by whiteness."

    South Africa’s state power company intensified rolling blackouts to a record, signaling a deepening crisis at the debt-ridden utility and raising the risk of a second recession in as many years. Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. said on Monday it will move to Stage 6 load-shedding from 6 p.m. local time, meaning it will cut 6,000 megawatts from the national grid, after a technical problem at the giant new Medupi Power Station curbed supply. That’s the biggest cut yet. The utility downgraded the status to Stage 4 as of 10 p.m. The utility is curbing power for a fifth straight day...

    A South African court has partially banned flying the country's apartheid-era national flag, saying such display amounted to "hate speech" and "harassment". Wednesday's landmark ruling in South Africa's Equality Court in Johannesburg barred the so-called "apartheid flag" - comprised of three stripes of orange, white and blue with the emblems of Britain, the Orange Free State and the South African Republic at its centre - from being displayed except for academic, artistic or journalistic purposes.

    Africans have come out to boycott South Africa after days of looting and violence targeting foreigners in which five people died. Nigerian singers and Zambia's football team are among those in the boycott. South Africa's Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu told the BBC the rioters feared losing their jobs to foreigners. The country has become a magnet for migrants from other parts of Africa. Who has boycotted South Africa? Nigerian Afrobeats star Burna Boy vowed to never go to South Africa again until the government "wakes up". He tweeted that he himself had had his own "xenophobic experiences at...

    When South Africa opened its books on the atrocities of the apartheid era in the 1990s, a tantalizing series of faded documents reignited one of the continent’s enduring mysteries. The records suggested that a white militia, operating with the support of the C.I.A. and British intelligence, orchestrated the 1961 plane crash that killed the United Nations secretary general, Dag Hammarskjold. Twenty years later, a team of documentary filmmakers set out to investigate the shadowy militia, known as the South African Institute for Maritime Research, and to determine whether it had really assassinated Mr. Hammarskjold. What they uncovered, if it is...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chief negotiator Saeb Erekat on Thursday evening accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of “victimizing the criminal” following the Prime Minister’s speech at the UN General Assembly. “Netanyahu’s speech is a combination of old and well-known talking points that conclude on victimizing the criminal and blaming the victim. His speech further exposes Israel’s systematic denial of our right to exist, to live in freedom and to celebrate our national identity,” said Erekat in a statement. “The reality on the ground in occupied Palestine is a manifestation of what Israel is: a colonial- apartheid state. Despite the oppression, racism...

    Economist ^ | 2017 | George Weigel
    Vladimir Putin may frighten some countries, but Russia gives many South Africans a warm and fuzzy feeling. They remember support in decades past: during apartheid the Soviet Union provided military training and arms to the African National Congress (ANC), as well as to other liberation movements on the continent. Some surprisingly common South African first names—such as Soviet, Moscow and Lenin—are living tributes to these old ties. Sputnik Ratau, born shortly after the first satellite’s launch, is a spokesman for the water and sanitation department. A high school in KwaZulu-Natal is named after Eric Mtshali, a stalwart of the struggle...

    Ilhan Omar, who once called Israel an “apartheid regime,” but who more recently came out against the boycott Israel movement, handily won the Democratic nomination in a Minneapolis-area congressional District. Omar, a Somali-born community activist and representative in the State House, is favored to win in November in the 5th District now held by Keith Ellison, who won the DFL primary for state attorney general. DFL is the state’s Democratic Party. There were primaries Tuesday in four states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Vermont. Omar’s tweets about Israel have earned her notoriety in the pro-Israel community. In 2012, she said...

    Do you know what Obama did in South Africa? You're not going to believe it. It's the biggest disgrace in the history of the U.S. presidency. But the mainstream media won't say a word- it's a total blackout. This is (as Obama would say) a "teachable moment." Ninety-plus percent of President TrumpÂ’s coverage by the U.S. mainstream media is negative. Terribly negative. Horribly negative. Remarkably negative. That same media adores and idolizes former President Obama. The difference in the way they are treated is remarkable. Remember it was Obama who first separated illegal alien parents from children. The media said...

    Sitting on a salvaged sofa in the centre of her small tin shack, Nomfusi Panyaza looks increasingly worried, as heavy clouds gather in the sky outside. “When it rains, the public toilets overflow into my living room,” she says. “Water comes in through the ceiling and the electricity stops working.” Outside her makeshift home in the sprawling township of Khayelitsha, on the eastern edge of Cape Town, barefoot children play on the banks of an open sewer, while cows roam next to an overflowing rubbish heap. Panyaza shares this tiny cabin with her two daughters and four grandchildren, a family...

    Hey, give Joy Reid credit. At least she didn’t go full Hitler analogy . . . On her MSNBC show this morning, Reid claimed that a recently-adopted Texas immigration law sounds “almost like an apartheid-era law.” To support her alarmist claim, Reid badly mischaracterized the law, suggesting that under it, “any person can be stopped for any reason and asked essentially [to] show their papers.” Her ACLU guest seemingly agreed, saying, “that’s right.” But she added that immigration-status inquiries can be made “once a person is legally detained,” thus debunking Reid’s suggestion that a person could be stopped and asked...

    or the last few days, a petition to “stop Israeli apartheid” at the Dead Sea has been circulating. And while many rightly smelt something fishy about it, others floundered as they fell for the hoax, hook, line and sinker. On March 29, a guy named Ian Brown in the United Kingdom started a Change.org petition titled, “Stop Israeli apartheid against Dead Sea fishermen – make Israel give them a fair deal.” The petition says the following Since Israel took control of the West Bank in 1967: It has not issued a single fishing permit to Palestinian fishermen for fishing in...

Guterres distanced himself from the report by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) but US Ambassador Nikki Haley said it should be scrapped altogether. “The United States is outraged by the report,” said Haley in a statement. “The United Nations secretariat was right to distance itself...

    The United States fired at back at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday, after he released a video equating the Palestinian Authority’s demand that a future Palestinian state be free of Jews to ethnic cleansing. “[T]he Palestinian leadership actually demands a Palestinian state with one pre-condition: No Jews. There's a phrase for that: It's called ethnic cleansing,” Netanyahu said in the video, which was released in Hebrew and English, as well as in a version with Arabic subtitles. “And this demand is outrageous. It's even more outrageous that the world doesn't find this outrageous,” he added. “Ethnic cleansing for peace...

The revolutionary stated: “We just need to start migrating back to those states and taking control of the economics in those states. If black people move in, most definitely white people will move out. So it’s not a hard process for us to...
