Pan African fight against global racismWhether in the United States or in the Mediterranean to the Motherland (ie Somalia, Libya and Sudan) and Israel, African people are catching hell all over the world. American police have shown their true colors over the past year with the murders of several unarmed African American men ranging in age from their 20s to 50s who were shot, beaten or had a part of their body broken. The heaviest pain came when 12 year old Tamir Rice was shot dead by the police playing with a toy gun. Baltimore to Philadelphia and Minneapolis are rightfully up in arms and rising their anger to the world against the mass killings of African American men and boys. The media hasn't helped with replaying the old, negative stereotypes of African American men as violent thugs, as African migrants to Europe as an existential threat and demographics.
In Israel, Ethiopian Jews, one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world isn't seen as Jewish enough along with Sudanese are seen as "cancers and infiltrators" in Israeli society. The Western countries want Africa's resources to keep their societies propped up but don't care for the people who are caught up in the man made wars and chaos caused by NATO led and proxy wars by Western allies. Jewish Ethiopian Israelis have been segregated, discriminated against across Israel in the same manner as occupied Palestinians. Ethiopian women have been forcibly sterilized while Israel insists that racism against non European Jews does not exist the Middle East's only democracy. After all how can Israel be racist towards non white Jews including Arab Jews when the country is Jewish itself? Israel's subtle racist legal system towards Palestinians and Ethiopian Jews as well as African migrants is also showing its own colors. The world is hearing more about Israeli treatment towards Africans. Ethiopian Israelis are protesting today against long standing police brutality against their community in Tel Aviv and Negev where many Ethiopians live.
