When this story about a slave market in Libya first hit, I knew black media wouldn’t cover it – I expected a blackout.
But, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. I gave them over a week to report on this and they FAILED! So, here I am trying to mop up the mess they failed to acknowledge.
When the western world obliterated Libya under the Obama administration and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I heard no one complaining about this military action. At least not from the people that were complaining about the recent Syria bombing – which they credited to Donald Trump.
But we all know the real reason this demographic didn’t support the Syria bombing was only because they held disdain for President Donald Trump. Had this very same military action occurred under their candidate, they would be silent. How do I know? Because they were!
Why are these groups now silent when it has been reported that Libya now has active public slave trade markets as reported by The Guardian 7 days ago? The head of the IOM’s Libya mission told journalists in Geneva that migrants are being sold as low as $200.
The West invaded Libya, destabilized the region, and now slavery is active. The actions of the west opened the door for slavery.

You would expect black media to be on top of this thing but unfortunately, they are too occupied with attacking black men.
The article highlights black women killed by their partners. We cannot for a second try to ignore this topic because it is an important issue that needs to be addressed. But how come they don’t discuss the violent relationships within the LGBT community?
We covered the topic which exposed the fact that LGBT relationships face a greater risk of domestic violence than heterosexual men and women! But again, their motive is to paint black women as victims and black men as the predator so this goes against their narrative. These people are NOT pro-black – they are agents of black destruction.
Slavery is active and there is a complete media BLACK OUT from Black Media. Amazing!
I searched ‘Libya slaves’ on Ebony.com and the search results returned two stories about Trump and the alleged Muslim Ban.
On theroot.com the search results returned another Trump Muslim ban story.
On Blavity.com there’s a story pushing the white vs black narrative which shackles the black community to a perpetual state of victimhood and progress stagnation.
On Essence.com we also get another Trump Muslim ban story.
Doesn’t it appear as if black media is being given stories to report on as opposed to doing any real independent investigative journalism? They all have the same content. It’s as if some entity wants to brainwash the entire black community. No wonder we’re so lost. ????
How is it that the same type of negro that uses slavery as a crutch to support their victim narrative does not want to discuss present day slavery? Is it because they are now pushing this POC title – which happens to group the Arabs with Blacks and since the Arabs are running the slave trade they don’t want to offend an “ally”?
Or is it because this new and recent PC culture classifies any criticism of a people as offensive, racist, or in this case, Islamaphobic?
We see that slavery is occurring in the present day as reported many times in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the UAE. In fact, Mauritania was the last country to abolish slavery in just 1981. WOW!
Why is it that many of these slaves happen to be women? African women? Or as some would call them, Black women? Shouldn’t it compel the black feminists in America to raise awareness?
I’ll tell you why they won’t cover the Arab slave trade of Africans. Because it does not support their mission to vilify and reduce the image and perception of black men. Which they like to coin, “toxic masculinity”.
Another problem is they are too busy patting themselves on the back. Giving out awards for virtue signaling and tweeting, which they try to claim as “woke”. But how woke are you if you won’t even acknowledge present day slavery?
We must hold black media accountable for providing the most important news. We have to hold them to a higher standard than the mainstream media, which practices deception.
Media is how a culture communicates with its people. So, if the media is not providing relevant information, you can expect your people to be behind the times.
Please reach out to the media outlets which I’ve named above and have them raise awareness about this. They have a large reach that spans many generations of the so-called black community. Let’s hold them responsible!
