I’ve been busy with other obligations for the last two days so I’m late to this story. You can read the facts surrounding the case on a thousand other blogs and news sites so all I can offer is my opinion.
I used to be against the death penalty but my mind has changed on the issue and I now think it’s justified in some cases. This is clearly one of them. If he’s found guilty, and at this point it looks like he certainly will be, he should be exterminated.
I believe in God and I believe God’s love and goodness can manifest itself in people. I also believe that evil is real and that the forces of evil can work through human beings. Anyone who walks into a house of God and slaughters innocent people is evil. Period.
Dylann Roof doesn’t deserve life imprisonment at the expense of others…

Although it’s beautiful
To have a little melanin
Out in the real world
It’s truly like hell we’re in.
The lighter the better
Including the hair
Being victimised by genetics
Seems so unfair.
If you’re unlucky
Enough to be chosen
To work in a corporation
You’ll leave broken.
The people around
Will hate on your shine
Try to bring you down
By acting out of line.
But when you complain
They’ll look at your skin
Brush it all off
Like it isn’t a thing.
All the while
You’re doing your best
Wondering if this job
Is worth all the stress.
And when you finally
Decide to give in
Remember it wasn’t you
But the colour of your skin.
This is the man they killed and vilified over the years…
In the name of Allah, the …beneficent, the merciful…
For 40 years, or was it longer, I can’t remember, I did all I could to give people houses, hospitals, schools, and when they were hungry, I gave them food. I even made Benghazi into farmland from the desert, I stood up to attacks from that cowboy Ronald Reagan, when he killed my adopted orphaned daughter, he was trying to kill me, instead he killed that poor innocent child. Then I helped my brothers and sisters from Africa with money for the African Union.
I did all I could to help people Understand the concept of real democracy, where people’s committees ran our country. But that was never enough, as some told me, even people who had 10 room homes, new suits and furniture, were never satisfied, as selfish…

Black Wall Street, or Little Africa, was a town in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the 1900s where a multitude of blacks had created their very own infrastructure. There were grocery stores, churches, schools and even a bus system in place for the residents of this area and the population in that community was thriving. Sadly, due to a deeply rooted hatred and jealousy of blacks, the Ku Klux Klan infiltrated this community and killed 3,000 blacks in the biggest race riot in history.
Some are comparing the Baltimore Riots to the rioting that occurred that day saying the upheaval is just a sign that blacks really are fed up with the injustices faced on a daily basis. Could the Baltimore Riots be a sign that blacks are ready to rebuild and take back what was once ours? After all, this country was built upon the blood, sweat and tears of our…

An extraordinary account of how and why the US and France spearheaded the war against Gaddafi
And if that wasn’t enough to make your head spin, read this excerpt from a piece published last year in Pravda that analyzes the difference between Nelson Mandela and Muammar Gaddafi :
The lukewarm saint
When Nelson Mandela endured 27 years of isolation in prison, he paid the price of being the socialist revolutionary and the racial equality fighter that he was. His freedom was taken away by the South African Apartheid regime, a regime that was the result of the infiltration of South Africa by European colonial powers. How come the same colonial powers now consider him to be a hero and a saint? Did the Western elite have a massive change of mind, and thus all of the sudden embraced the exact same ideology that made them put Mandela behind bars a few…

On Thursday 9 April, hundreds of students were gathered on the upper campus of the University of Cape Town to watch as a crane carried out the removal of the Cecil John Rhodes statue. The statue was removed after weeks of demonstration that were initiated when students threw human feces at the figurine, which they described as a symbol of white privilege. The build up to the falling of the Rhodes statue has dispersed feelings of protest across Southern Africa, sparking a series of demonstrations relating it to Cecil John Rhodes and issues referring to the ways in which white colonialists deserve to be remembered.
Following the initial riots at the University of Cape Town (UCT) campus, students at Rhodes University in Grahamstown were riled with similar feelings of unrest and consequently demanded a change in their university name. The Rhodes governing body assuaged these protests, but did allow a
