Y’all heard about the mess in Zimbabwe just a few days ago, right? No? Oh – I forgot. Kim Khardashian and BLM took precedence over any and all other news. Here in the U.S. media it’s not news when an entire country gets shut down – particularly if it’s “only” in Africa. Consider the following: http://www.cathybuckle.com/index.php?id=210 (thanks to Whirlibird for this resource several months back).

“People power reigned supreme,” said the original (top) article. Indeed. Does the rest of the world have to descend as far as Zimbabwe before they figure it out?
