When Will It Stop? We Support Reparations Now Yesterday was a powerful day for racial justice. The House Judiciary Committee reviewed the Immigration No Ban Act, and there were historic hearings in Congress held for the Self-Determination Act to move towards decolonization of Puerto Rico, and H.R. 40 For Study and Proposals for Reparations for African Americans. We are in the midst of mourning and protesting the murder of Daunte Wright, the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin as we relive the trauma of George Floyd’s lynching, continued efforts across states to suppress the voice and power of Black and Brown voters, and the spectacle made of Black life through the recurring videos replaying our slain bodies on the news on social media. This is all no different from early 20th century postcards of lynchings of Black people.   A reconciliation is beyond due. Today and beyond, we have an opportunity to truly move towards a democracy rooted in equity and liberation.   Black people in this country are being harmed as we speak. We cannot build equity without dismantling the past and present violence as well as the  strategic harm by the government towards Black people in this country. We thank Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee for leading the charge in the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee towards America paying what is owed for the labor, blood, violence and systemic practice of disenfranchisement of Black people in America. The first time ever, a bill to study reparations is headed to the House for a vote. The roots of anti-Black racism in this country impacts the oppression of all people without proximity to whiteness. The liberation of Black people is bound to our collective liberation. We support reparations now, because justice cannot wait.

NIGERIA O!-Why YouTube suspended TB Joshua’s Emmanuel TV

Why YouTube suspended TB Joshua’s Emmanuel TV

Posted by Abiolapaul on April 16, 2021 at 4:18pm


A UK-based media organisation ‘openDemocracy’ has claimed responsibility for the sudden closure of Pastor TB Joshua’s popular YouTube Channel Emmanuel TV, which had over 1,800,000 subscribers and 600,000,000 views.

In an article ( published to their website titled, ‘YouTube closes African channel promoting televangelist’s violent conversion therapy’, Kerry Cullinan explains how the American video-sharing site terminated Emmanuel TV “in response to our enquiries about TB Joshua’s controversial exorcisms”.

According to the report, the channel posted at least seven clips showing “the charismatic Christian televangelist engaging in exorcism to ‘cure’ gay and lesbian congregants of their sexual orientation by casting out ‘the demon of homosexuality’.”

Cullinan, however, acknowledges that after the Nigerian cleric’s prayers, the individuals concerned all testified that they no longer experienced same-sex attraction.

“YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit hate speech and we remove flagged videos and comments that violate these policies. In this case we have terminated the channel,” a YouTube spokesperson told openDemocracy after they reported Joshua to the social media giant.

In his statement announcing the suspension, Joshua refuted the allegations of ‘Hate Speech’.

“Our mission is to share the love of God with everyone – irrespective of race or religion – and we strongly oppose all forms of hate speech,” he wrote on Twitter.

In the description of the video which triggered the suspension, the cleric states: “God hates sin, not sinners. When the Bible says, ‘Do not judge so that you will not be judged’, it means we should hate sin, not the sinner because sinners can change…

“We should hate the act, not the people because our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the ‘spirit beings’ that cause all these acts.”

The announcement of Emmanuel TV’s removal has continued to elicit backlash from the pastor’s teeming supporters who have taken to social media to vent their indignation.

“How can praying for someone who freely came to your church to ask for God’s help with same-sex attraction now be classified as ‘Hate Speech’?” fumed Jennifer Ayre in a comment on Joshua’s official Facebook Page. “This is an affront to Christians worldwide!”

“I think it’s because YouTube is not making any money from Emmanuel TV because it’s the largest channel which doesn’t monetise its contents,” asserted Hakeem Oladiran, referring to Joshua’s stance to not allow adverts on his clips, promote merchandise or engage in fund-raising campaigns.

“They can suspend the YouTube channel but they cannot suspend the truth,” tweeted Adey Henrietta, calling on Emmanuel TV to launch its own social media platform instead.

For two days, YouTube’s official Facebook Page has been inundated with requests to restore the popular Christian channel and complaints about the suspension.

OpenDemocracy, which describes itself as an “independent global media organisation” whose projects include championing “women’s and LGBTIQ voices”, also revealed they reported Joshua’s activities to Facebook and DSTV, which hosts Emmanuel TV on satellite in Africa.

Joshua’s Facebook Page, which has over 5.6 million followers, remains active although the company stated certain videos had been removed after openDemocracy’s queries.

Nigeria is a country blessed with lots of talented individuals who have been showcasing their works for the world to see.

According to a post from A Facebook page , a Certain Nigerian man have amazed fellow Nigerians after building a Moveable car which was tagged as “Super Car”.

The man took to the streets to drive his self-built car to the Amazement of Passersby who couldn’t resist than to stop by and have a clearer view of the Vehicle which was driven by its maker who wore an helmet.

The car is indeed a super car as it doesn’t look like the Normal cars we find on the road. It’s actually a two-seaters Automobile with an Extra Tyre at the back. The car looks to be nearing Completion in terms of spraying and making it look colourful.

As usual, Nigerians would never fail to commend good things. A lot of Nigerians have taken time to commend the Effort of the Young Nigerian Man.
