One of the big questions that we as congolese have been asking ourselves is: why isn’t our crisis being broadcasted? Unlike tragedies and strife in Ukraine, Gaza, Syria or even frequent gun shootings in the US that get large scale media coverage, the “Congo Crisis” is not a priority as it does not benefit from enough coverage and airtime on mainstream media channels. Nevertheless, it is one of the saddest tragedies in contemporary history. In 2012 congolese nationals demonstrated in the UK outside BBC premises to make their voice heard. They pointed that years of wars and painful stories were being swept under the carpets in prominent media houses. It has not changed since.
To tackle the issue of the lack of coverage concerning the Congo’s ongoing crisis-a war that was started in 1998 and claimed the lives of at least 6,000,000 people, equating the jewish genocide by Hitler-many countrymen are taking the initiative to speak out. Capitalizing on the social media revolution, they finally emerge to raise awareness and spread the word. Not only about the dead, but they also showcase war crimes and atrocities the living are forced to undergo, such as rape.
One of them is Vava Tampa (Twitter: @VavaTampa), a congolese part time activist based in the UK. He has had the privillege to pen down articles for CNN, Forbes and theguardian, in which he raises issues around war in Congo and explores avenues to solve the crisis.
For many years, Black superheroes have been dismissed as sidekicks, imitators of established white heroes, or are accused of having no role outside of blaxploitation film contexts. Yet the importance of a Storm, Luke Cage, Black Panther, or Jon Stewart as Green Lantern or Miles Morales as Spiderman cannot be understated. Their entry into comic books also served as entry to the hearts and imaginations of black children, confirming that they too can be superheroes and could one day save the world.

Just let me be.
Your willingness to want to change my thought pattern is alarming.

White dude in St. Louis named Kevin Miner was wanted for burglary.
He eluded police officers until they conducted a search of a resident’s home and found him.
He attacked both officers, breaking one cop’s hand. The media even alludes to Miner being forced to “fight back” against the police because of how he was being apprehended!
Miraculously, the cops managed not to punch him in the face repeatedly, put him in a chokehold, or shoot him six times including once in the face and once in the head.
He, in fact, barely had a scratch on him.
The next time someone says to you:
"BUT IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE (Patent Pending)!"
Throw your tea dead in their face Dominique Deveraux-style and pump on away from them like Naomi Campbell.
