I consider myself to be passionate about Black people and the Black experience. That being said, I think its understandable that I will always fight for the underdog. Today is BLOG ACTION DAY, a day where thousands of bloggers around the world will focus on poverty. Its important that we never forget the poor among us in our world society. For its the number of poor among us that represents our success at large. Having said that, I wanted to take this day to shine some light on a little discussed subject here in America in the mainstream media: The Genocide In Darfur.

I don’t wanna get to deep, and share my thoughts on the current state of affairs. But sometimes, I have to wonder if Blacks in America are better off by being here, given the history of racism on this continent, as it relates to our African American History. I’d be interested to hear your opinions on that in your commentary. I will say this, I’m not pleased with the fact that this civil war in the Sudan has been taking place since 1983, and the U.S. Gov’t has done very little in my opinion. I think its really sad that it took the current energy crisis to make our gov’t shift focus and create AFRICOM. Under the guise of creating better opportunities for Africans in the Sudan, we’ll soon see American troops on African soil. The truth is, our gov’t is only concerned with the cheap source of oil that the continent and the region supplies on a world scale. Personally, I wish they would have acted sooner in an humanitarian effort, because lord knows how many lives could have been saved.

If you’re unaware of the situation…
