Don't the man remind you of the late Johnny Cochran? Keep up the good work, brother.


Slavery.. this word should be used with lots of caution esspecially by people of African descent. The mainstream media wants to downplay the horrors of the transatlantic slavery by claiming that it is still widely practised in Africa today.

I guess what Mr. Etongwe has to say is getting a lot of press attention for this reason.


Those who bring young women from Cameroon to help with domestic work and baby sitting should be very educated of the laws governing such activities. Failure to do so can land you a serious jail term and a fizzle of your american dream. As somebody pointed out, there are Cameroonians serving lengthy jail sentences for such abuses in the Washington DC area.
