– We encourage the US government to elaborate a National Action Plan for Racial Justice to fully implement the International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) and comprehensively address racism affecting African Americans. – See more at:

It’s a relief to know the world is paying attention to black strife in America.  It’s extremely sad that after so many years in this country, so many tears and blood shed to build it, that blacks are still marginalized in America.  The United Nations took the time to pen a lengthy letter with observations and facts happening to blacks in the United States.  

The statement comes from the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent. It listed several concerns that highlighted racial disparities such as police brutality, mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline.

Please pray for the people of Nigeria dealing with murder and senseless terror.  The Religious extremists terrorist group Boko Haram, continues to terrorize and take innocent lives to the extreme of burning children to death.  Details available below —-

A survivor hidden in a tree says he watched Boko Haram fighters firebomb huts and heard the screams of children burning to death, among 86 people officials say died in the latest attack by Nigeria’s homegrown armed group.

Scores of charred corpses and bodies with bullet wounds littered the streets from Saturday night’s attack on Dalori village and two nearby camps housing 25,000 refugees, according to survivors and soldiers at the scene just 3 miles from Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram and the biggest city in Nigeria’s northeast.

The shooting, burning and explosions from three suicide bombers continued for nearly four hours in the unprotected area, survivor Alamin Bakura said, weeping on a telephone call to The Associated Press. He said several of his family members were killed or wounded.

The violence continued as three female suicide bombers blew up among people who managed to flee to neighboring Gamori village, killing many people, according to a soldier at the scene who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to journalists.

Troops arrived at Dalori around 8:40 p.m. Saturday but were unable to overcome the attackers, who were better armed, said soldiers who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. The Boko Haram fighters only retreated after reinforcements arrived with heavier weapons, they said.

Journalists visited the carnage Sunday and spoke to survivors who complained it had taken too long for help to arrive from nearby Maiduguri, the military headquarters of the fight to curb Boko Haram. They said they fear another attack.

Eighty-six bodies were collected by Sunday afternoon, according to Mohammed Kanar, area coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency. Another 62 people are being treated for burns, said Abba Musa of the State Specialist Hospital in Maiduguri.

Another 62 people were being treated for burns, said Abba Musa of the State Specialist Hospital in Maiduguri, the biggest city in northeastern Nigeria, which is about 10km from from Dalori.

Nigerian troops were initially unable to fight off the attackers, and Boko Haram fighters only retreated after reinforcements arrived with heavier weapons, soldiers said.

“As they saw the flames of the fight, then they alerted us. I informed the soldiers … and that’s how they checked,” Lawana Geti, head of a local vigilante group called Kondugua, said.

“And when the soldiers were coming, Boko Haram rushed out of the village.”

Boko Haram has been attacking soft targets, increasingly with suicide bombers, since the military last year drove them out of towns and villages in northeastern Nigeria.

The 6-year uprising has killed about 20,000 people and driven 2.5 million from their homes.

At first I thought this was a hoax, so I didn’t blog about it, and guess what, it is.  This story has been making the rounds on the Internet, and credible sites have been reporting it.  The Eritrean GOVERMENT has made it mandatory that the men marry at least Two women, due to a shortage of men as a result of immigration and war conflicts with Ethiopia.  As for the women, if they refuse this way of life they will face life in prison. All lies. 

Well Eritreans are very beautiful people, and I’m happy to learn it’s a hoax.  It would be scary if Government could mandate who you marry and force this way of life.  Of course being American this is completely foreign to me, but they could adapt and maybe approve of this as a culture.  Sounds expensive and unreasonable to me, but the Muslim religion approves of having at least 4 wives as long as you can financially support them.  I guess that’s why I’m not religious.
