The pervading assumption in the hearts and minds of many of us regarding biases and chauvinism towards the poor and black people emanates from the notion of blissful ignorance and our failure to properly and accurately articulate our story. The burden of proof is on us and that western media and press is absolved of responsibility and accountability. I think rather it is part of the pattern of behavior and is closely linked to the governing principles that guide the relationship between the world as constructed and projected by the west and the disconnect with the values and traditions that underpin the African narratives. It is not an error on anyone’s part but part of the design to perpetuate the subjugation, oppressive and dehumanizing world order. It is not merely a double standard but rather an indication of the effectiveness of the design of the system of exploitation disguised as impartial and virtues.
This video is a commentary of this very media hypocrisy and blatant racism as evident in this article https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-57791868 .
