Amid the coverage of attacks on Ukraine by Russian forces, those with ties to other countries in conflict are raising questions about inequalities in public response.
A series of clips are circulating on social media in which broadcasters and interviewees on major platforms make statements that seemingly paint Ukrainian victims of tragedy as more sympathetic than non-European victims.
Tusidanganyane mujamaa, Africans are too lazy to develop anything … we are only good at making noise on shosho media and getting drunk & naked. Show me any invention from Africa na usiongee mambo ya ile tuktuk ya Laikipia aka bj20.
I tire with the whining. cover your own wars. they are covering theirs.
How do you expect white people to come talk about your issues? if they do cover your issues they will do so in a manner that favours them.
Except that whites also cover “our own” wars.
And except that failure to allow foreign coverage on a colored nation is bound to be condemned as failure to allow “freedom of press/speech/rights/democracy”
That war should present third world nations with an opportunity to be not only critical of the developed nations, but to also move with speed to wean itself off begging and return to the doctrine of nonalignment.
From your quote, it’s the ukrainians that will build back better. It’s the Russians that should suffer.
But the war is felt in Kenya, where absolutely no one is involved in it. That’s how much unequal globalization has fucked the African.
you cover your own wars and also cover theirs and paint them however you want. ndio mheshimiane. Right now they have a free reign to do whatever they want because the rest dont take it seriously. even russia is realizing why it should have built its own media empire. the only people that seem to understand this apart from the west are the chinese and the japanese.
konyagi supressed coverage of somalia war so that they could sell charcoal in peace. Aljazeera does it and it paints kenyans very negatively. I can understand that the mandevu journalist was trying to support terrorism but it should have been handled better.
