Hi Achiri,

If you don't mourn, your dead, celebrate your heroes, spread your religious and political mythologies, no one else will do it for you. What stopped the African media and governments to create a huge mobilization around the 10th Anniversary of the Rwandan genocide? How many African news organs are paying any attention to the ongoing trial of the perpetrators of the genocide in Arusha, Tanzania?

Did Cameroon's leading English language newspaper, The Post, dedicate even one line to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Lake Nyos tragedy? No!

We Africans must stop being perpetual victims; eternal crybabies always waiting for the "whiteman" to validate our pain and joy, or our successes.

Darfur is first of all an African problem not a Western one. Deal with it!

To AngryMan. U Cannot be so POed with Achiri. Awareness is the beginning. He makes a strong point. Why should africans cry about the pain of some arabs when arabs are busy massacreing Afrikans in the name of their religion?

Achiri

AngryMan u made no point!!!
