Today I came across this article that looks like it was written by an Australian man and I just thought I would share it with y’all to look at and make your own conclusions on below that I have attached my comment that I left on his post:
- Oh Mr. Evans, Mr. Evans, Mr. Evans. You know what as a fellow human being to the other let me say hello and wish you well.The article whereas very well quoted and cited – at a level that sadly I believe my blog can never get to – the argument unfortunately began by not making a very key distinction:Refugees vs Immigrants
Whereas I love all my African brothers and sisters , there is no denying there is a huge disparity between African immigrants and African refugees for among other reasons the different classes of the groups and the trauma that refugees have to go through.Secondly, there are 50+ countries in Africa each with their own tribes, languages and immigrants and refugees that they have sent here.If we are to have honest, fair discourse, please change your article to reflect at the very least these two factors and also just what will happen to these Somali kids who have no home and no culture to return to once they are deported.A place is never judged by how it treats its best citizens but its weakest and most disenfranchised.
- Apologies, I called you Mr. Evans. I am wiping the haze of sleep of my eyes now.
Africans and Victimhood
I found this article on Global Voices Online, find it in the Displaced African resources or by going to Global Voices Online . It’s about an idea that I will definitely expound on myself later on. However, she discussed it perfectly so check it out. Below I have pasted a conversation I am having on Global Voices Online about the article. Feel free to join in.
