South African rapper, AKA, has just re-echoed the level of institutional racism that still takes place in the international media.
At the moment, every News media in the world is focused on the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium. And this got the attention of the rapper, who rightly called out CNN and other international media for downgrading terrorist attacks in other parts of the world. Even when the situation is worse and the death toll is higher. He tweeted;
Aka’s words might come off as insensitive but his words are not further from the truth. Over the years Africans and other minorities in the world have been relegated to the background and while this is not the major reason why “spineless” terrorist attack innocent people. It is top on the list.
All lives matter!
