Yeah, not when he stole the Presidential election in 2000.

Not 9/11.

Not Guantánamo.

Not Bagram.

Not all the “rendition” and “interrogations”.

Not when they crafted a media campaign to get people to support another occupation.

Not when we littered Iraq with radioactive waste because we loved our DU shells.

Not when we used White phosphorus on Fallujah in a way that can only be described as a city-wide collective punishment.

Not when that war ate up the national guard and reserves so that the federal government just didn’t have the resources on hand for when Katrina broke the levees.

Not when the Bush administration continued to bungle the response to that, leaving thousands of mostly Black people dead or homeless.

No, Kanye’s the gross one, supposedly.

And Bush said that after he left office I’m pretty sure, so we’re talking about him also disregarding how he bailed out the irresponsible banks while home values tanked.

DOCUMENTARY: Hustle On A Mile - Short film by Bemigho Awala.

Hustle on a Mile presents a foray into life at the popular Mile 12 Market, in Lagos.

Through the eyes of Sanni, a young secondary school leaver who picks soft tomatoes for sale, we experience the daily hustle in this bustling city market.

The movie touches on soft thematic strands like the dignity of labour, primordial survival instincts, and the pursuit of happiness.

A gripping tale of grit, ardor and candor.

Such  great short! Great to see documentaries of this nature produced by Africans.

Back in 1981, Mauritania became the last country in the world to abolish slavery. Now, over 30 years later, human rights activists still maintain that this heinous practice still exists and that up to 20% of the country’s population are enslaved, despite claims by the Mauritanian government that it is ‘a thing of the past’.

In response to this, the Mauritanian government has now set up an anti-slavery agency that aims to combat the practice and culture of slavery in the country, as well as reintegrate former enslaved peoples into Mauritanian society.

In this conversation hosted by Al Jazeera, The Stream talks to Mauritanian human rights and anti-slavery activists who break down the situation and complexities of the culture and system of enslavement, under-representation, and systematic marginalization in the country that are sustained by ethnic, and sometimes racial, divides, also bringing in a very important perspective on the relationships between black Africans and Arab colonizers.
