2,000 Black Lives in Nigeria Don’t Matter

President Obama and Eric Holder have spent an inordinate amount of their energy on Ferguson, Missouri – in a fruitless effort to convince the world that the United States is racist. Because Black Lives Matter, I’m told – by Rodney Lee Conover

My question to you is: Do you think the over 2,000 people in Nigeria who were brutally chopped up, shot or burned alive earlier this month would rather have been in Philadelphia?

The fact is, when the planes bringing black people from one continent to another in order to settle in a place with hope, liberty and opportunity for all – they’re all flying this way. From Africa to America.

No one is claiming the U.S. is perfect and only a fringe few say bigotry is dead, but the race pimps – like Sharpton, Holder, most of the major media, Barack and Michelle Obama, Jesse Jackson and the rest of them are strangely silent on a massacre that should be leading every broadcast.

Yes, there are terrible things going on in the world, but what is more horrific than Boko Haram going into the town of Kano, Nigeria and slaughtering everyone in sight?

Boko-Haram-.-kill-Agric-students-in-Gujba-Yobe-stateGrenade launchers, automatic weapons, machete’s and the literal burning of people alive were the methods of these psychopaths.

Do I have to say it? Black lives don’t matter if they’re raped and murdered by other blacks.

There – ya happy? Tell me I’m wrong – I’m waiting.

Show me where the President is sending an elite force of kick-ass to wipe out Boko Haram. Let me know when Sharpton’s press conference is and by all means, when they make Eric Holder’s schedule change to heading down to the Mother Country – lemme know.

You’ll be lucky to even hear about this outside of this article. Black lives don’t matter to this media or this President, unless it’s at the hands of whitey. Preferably Republican whitey. Ohhhhh, and if it could only be Tea Party whitey – there’s the perfect storm.

From CNN International… not regular CNN, mind you.

Boko Haram has terrorized northern Nigeria attacking police, schools, churches and civilians, and bombing government buildings. The Islamist group has said its aim is to impose a stricter form of Sharia law across Nigeria.

But the scale of the early January attack — the death of hundreds, possibly thousands — defies belief:

The attackers sped into a Nigerian town with grenade launchers — their gunfire and explosions shattering the early morning calm.

“If reports that as many as 2,000 civilians were killed are true, this marks a disturbing and bloody escalation of Boko Haram’s ongoing onslaught,” said Daniel Eyre, Nigeria researcher for Amnesty International.

Some sought refuge in their homes. They were burned alive. Many who tried to cross into neighboring Chad drowned while trying to swim through Lake Chad.

The Nigerian military said the description of the attack as “the deadliest” was “quite valid.”

“The attack on the town by the bloodhounds and their activities since January 3 should convince well meaning people all over the world that Boko Haram is the evil all must collaborate to end,” it said.

That was January 3, just a few days ago, yet dead and still dying bodies still linger in the jungled surrounding area because it’s not safe to go in there – the area is occupied by Boko Haram. Civilian fighters gave up on trying to count all the bodies.

Most of the victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when the scum fired rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents.

These are sociopathic cowards. Why does the world put up with this? If I were in charge (and I will be), it would be simple, because black lives do matter.

Where are you president Obama?
