White Media: ((((yawn...)))

If you want truth and accuracy about 1) what is going on in Lebanon 2) what is going on with reparations 3) what is going on in the world in general, DO NOT, I repeat do not rely on the white-controlled media. It is agonizingly boring to listen, read and watch white media continually distort everything from the war crimes committed by the Israelis in Lebanon, to their neglect in reporting one of the most important elections in recent African history, the Congo.

With all white media, everything is measured in degrees and so I tend to listen/read several outlets (except for the mind-numbing and stupid Fox "News" network) and make up my own mind about what is really going on in the world. Unfortunately, most Americans get their news from TV and rarely go beyond what the talking heads say to them each night.

I don't want this to be another missive about white bias in the media, there are tons of articles that already deal with that. What I want to provide are a few links for getting accuracy when you simply want to know what is happening with people of color around the world. Here they are:
