(CNSNews.com) Only three months to go until the First World Summit of African Descendants, a U.N.-sponsored event that aims to right historical wrongs.
The August 18-21 summit in La Ceiba, Honduras, will focus on the socioeconomic conditions of Afro-descendant populations and establish a plan to ensure development with equity for these groups, said the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), which announced the event in Washington on Thursday.
The event is part of the United Nations-declared International Year of African Descendants.
This International Year of African Descendants provides an opportunity to right historical wrongs: in health, education, poverty, land rights, jobs, and financial credit for economic and social progress, said Pan American Health Organization Director Mirta Roses in a news release. This celebration is important for recognizing the strength and resilience of Afro-descendant communities throughout the Americas, who have thrived despite historical discrimination and repression.
The U.N. says an estimated 150 million African descendants live in Mexico and Central and South America.

Sweet. Does the UN plan to hit up descendants of the Africans who sold their brethren into slavery for checks?
I agree. So who’s paying for it?
Drat. You beat me. I can’t even post what I’m thinking when I’m the second poster. :)
We’re all African. It is just a matter of when our ancestors left.
Well then here is where the ridiculous “one mother out of africa” theory comes in right handy. We are ALL descendants of africa. If this idiocy can be even hinted at by the UN, then either science will have to change its irrational theory, or the world will have to treat us all like black people. Uhhhhhhh
.05 seconds. Wow
Exactly. Makes me crazy that only blacks are believed to have African ancestors.
Okay, but let’s not forget you second and third world people, that over 80% of the African slaves went toe South America and not the United States. So let’s draw the payments accordingly.
Efe la U. N.
The UN. how is this different from any other redistributionist scheme of theirs?
I read about a walled community in Brazil that had 30,000 residents (mostly White) and employed 1,200 armed private security guards.
All non-residents were subject to searching going & coming.
The U.N. thinks that amends should be made for the slave trade. I AGREE !!!
“over 80% of the African slaves went toe South America “
/// sadly, not true.
“The U.N. says an estimated 150 million African descendants live in Mexico and Central and South America.”
yes, and even more black slaves went to Saudi Arabia.
Slavery wasn’t “officially” abolished there, until 1964 !
(a century AFTER Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.)
HOW many decendants of them, live in Saudi today ???
...it is the most ignored genocide in human history.

“Its important to remember that the bulk of the slave trade went in the opposite direction from Africa to the Arabian peninsula. ... The truth is that Muslims have been slaughtering and enslaving black Africans for more than a millennium. ... Where do you see a thousand years of African blood in Arab countries? You dont. The men were often killed and boys were castrated. Many of them died as a result. The women were used and discarded. They disappeared and another generation, fresh from Africa, replaced them as though they had never been.”
” However, at least 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East. As at least 80% of those captured by Muslim slave traders were calculated to have died before reaching the slave markets, it is believed that the death toll from the 14 centuries of Muslim slave raids into Africa could have been over 112 million.
When added to the number of those sold in the slave markets, the total number of African victims of the Trans Saharan and East African slave trade could be significantly higher than 140 million people. “
sadly, almost NO ONE in the West knows about this.
Especially black Americans, who are brainwashed to only hate Western slavery. Which certainly was abhorrent!
...but Arab slavery was an order of magnitude worse.
and because African-Americans don’t know these, they are the leading source of converts to Islam, in “Dearbornistan”, and elsewhere in the USA.
...just as most people don’t know how the “Hindu Kush” got it’s name.
...from the death of millions of captive Hindus and Buddhists marched over the mountains there. it means “Hindu Slaughter”.
...from the accounts of the Muslims OWN historians, it is estimated that over 70 million Hindus and Buddhists were killed over the centuries of conquest, plunder, and rape.
Muslim historians left DETAILED accounts, of literally thousands of Hindu temples destroyed.
(often building a mosque on top... sound familiar?)
...in one account, due to a sudden battle, they were forced to kill all the Hindu slaves they couldn’t guard. their OWN accounts say it was more than 100,000 slaughtered...
The American sucker.....er taxpayer for the most part.To wit: You and me.
This is racism pure and simple. It is classic. A group writes its history as a story of suppression and mistreatment, and demands that the world make up for its alleged past wrongs.
Naziism was founded on this approach, and communism did the same thing on a class-basis (usually also becoming entwined with racial and national resentment).
This game exculpates the favored group from any responsibility, often undercuts their own initiative while waiting for the world to give them the reward they think is their due, and also justifies violence against perceived tormenters.
We facilitate this mass psychosis by pandering to any racist movement (except one favoring ourselves, of course). Thus we tolerate La Raza, an hispanic racial group whose name means The Race, which seeks the recovery of all the land from the Mexican Session. It reminds one of all the other countries which often have moivement seeking a return to their historic boundaries, generally the boundaries at their greatest extent. By this standard, Lithuania should be one of the largest countries in Europe!
The US coddles racism in political powerful grups: for example, by issuing a US postage stamp in honor of Malcomb X, and annually for Kwanzaa.
There is no group in the world which has not been mistreated somewhere in its history. The resentments can be extremely exaggerated responses to very distant injustices.
In the case of Blacks: most were enslaved by other Blacks, who then sold them to strange, pale foreigners, because they wanted money to buy guns to attack their Black neighbors even more efficiently. This fact almost never reaches history books in our public schools.
What makes me laugh is that most Hispanics never say anything to Spain. Spain, which is why we Latinos speak Spanish, conquered and damn near wiped Central and South American Indians off the face of the Earth. On top of it, in my families home land of Cuba, Spain held on to the bitter end in maintaining the slave trade. Yet, it is always the “white man” at fault for their own short comings. Truth in this argument should be directed to Portugal and Spain, which were the two leading countries to exploit the African coast. Just my two cents.
