where do the ancient statues go,after ISIS demolishes them?
It was yesterday evening that I realized that the youtube channel of my friend Ngoniba ,is no more.Gone..
He didn't inform me and I was too busy to follow what was happening around.
The truth remains like a bad joke:1600 videos of (mainly)Malian and West African music treasures,many of them of unique historical value have vanished since 2 months from youtube due to Africacable claims of copyright infringement for some of their videos .
I was shocked though very familiar with the new (web or out of the web) practices.
It was like bombing a whole city for hosting 3 terrorists,or a very similar tactic to what those criminals of ISIS do in Iraq.I wasn't missing something.in my picture no!
Years of work and research have vanished with no good reason ,or I'm free to suspect for a very good reason:
Real African culture (and Third World culture in general )is unwanted in a business system ( I won't call it a civilization,civilizations even the most barbaric have at least principles ) that promotes (scientifically and backed up with tons of money ) racism,sexism, materialism and their variations as their basic everyday drag .
there is no future for the human race in such a system.
but there is plenty of future out of it
I'm really sorry for them.
....and I'm sorry for me too
for not protecting enough our heritage of those ancient statues
