QUOTE OF THE DAY: UK RAPPER SPEECH DEBELLE AIRS HER VIEWS ON THE KONY 2012 CAMPAIGN

Speech Debelle

For those of you who still don’t know what the now controversial Kony 2012 campaign is all about click HERE.

“I was quite quiet at the beginning. I’ve seen it going on for about a week.

It didn’t ring true to me. I was on the Al Jazeera website today when I saw one of the news reports they’d been doing on oil found in Uganda and it began to seem a bit suspicious. A bit too much of a coincidence. Again.

I’m not backing this Kony campaign. As far as I’m concerned, I’m not going to be part of a campaign that possibly – and based on historic fact – more than likely could contribute to more raping and pillaging of the birthplace of man. I’m not going to do that.

Especially when they’re so arrogant to use the same PR campaign that they’ve been using every time. There’s this bad man in a bush.. Even McDonald’s changes its campaign once in a while.

I’m a Jamaican. I am of Jamaican descent so that means I am the descendant of rebellious slaves. US invasion of Africa has never been beneficial to me. My personal history means that any time there is some invasion of Africa it has not ended up well for Africans and the descendants of Africans, so therefore I can’t be a part of it.

They know that it works. It works to tell everyone there’s a bad man and everyone jumps behind it, so that’s what they’ve been using for the past couple of invasions. There needs to come a time where people say, ‘Hold on, I think I’ve heard this story before’.

And the story ends up the same. How did it end up for the Iraqis? We were supposed to save them but I don’t know if it ended up too well.” [Via Digital Spy]

PREACH!!!!!

She speaks the truth! Someone buy this woman a drink.

  1. The whole thing smelt phony from the moment I noticed the online buzz about it – so I didn’t watch the video. It probably is just another one of their cover-ups to hide the truth!

  2. Yes the campaign sounds phoney, and I question the motives behind it (like everyone says, why now?), but let’s not forget that Kony is still evil.

  3. The truth is white people never help people unless there is something in it for them. SIMPLE AND PLAIN. Arabs have got them by the balls so they are looking for more places with oil.

    Oh dear. I really hope you don’t believe this.

  5. Yes dear. I know this for a fact. It’s sad but true All this is about oil why do you think the US and UK suddenly just got invloved in the middle east, it weren’t to help the people it was about oil and now the arabs have them by the balls and are charging more and more for oil they are looking for more places. Africa and South America. You give money to charites in Africa about 10% goes there it’s a business
