BLM Is Global: What Is Joe Biden's Foreign Policy? (4:06) Shakaboona

Black Lives Matter is global, so what's Joe Biden's foreign policy? When a black rebellion spread like wildfire in America immediately after the police's murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, that far left across borders and oceans finding- tending tinderboxes of similarly racially, oppressed black national communities throughout Europe. Igniting and it's spreading massive black rebellions and protests in European capitals of Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Belgium, New Zealand, and the Netherlands. This shows the face of global white supremacy, commonly diluted to the generic term of racism, how black lives doesn't matter all over the world under Caucasian governments.

 

Since Black Lives Matter is a global problem and America is the self-proclaimed leader of the free world, then what is presidential hopeful Joe Biden's foreign policy to bring the world in line with respecting the human rights of African-American peoples globally. Lest African-Americans not forget that the history of Africans kidnapped, enslaved, racially segregated, and civil rights struggle happened to black people in Britain, France, and Germany as well. And whether we are aware of it or not, this history connects black peoples throughout the world in a pan-African way.

 

So oceans apart, the struggles of African-Americans and African Britain, French, Germans are identical. We are fighting to overcome institutional racial class oppression, and a million racial injustices and inequalities imposed by Caucasian governments. Acknowledging that shared history can help us focus on our shared reality, which is white supremacy carried out by Caucasians is a global problem that requires a global response and solution led by America.

 

Joe Biden's presidential campaign has begun to adopt a domestic anti-racism policy, but where is his parallel foreign anti-racism policy and message at- for the rest of the world's nations and the treatment of their black communities? What good does a domestic anti racist policy in America serve an African-American that travels to France only to have white French cops murder him because he is black like they murdered the African French brother Adama Traoré when French cops pinned him on the ground and suffocated him to death. France is even worse than America.

 

Obviously an American foreign anti-racism policy is greatly needed. It's a terrible shame that none of today's African-American leaders having knowledge of our illustrious pan-African ancestors as W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Robert F. Williams, and Huey P. Newton have not called for a Pan-African anti-racism agenda for the world or demanded that the Democratic and Republican parties adopt global anti-racism as America's foreign policy.

 

In addition to the bourgeois so-called African-American leadership being consumed with making Joe Biden pick a black woman for the historically weak vice president position at home, they should be pressing Biden to fulfill many of the powerful cabinet positions of Treasury Department, the NSA, the State Department, the Justice Department, and Ambassador to the UN with African-Americans, that they may be positioned to push for a human rights and anti-racism policy for black people at home and abroad. That way, black lives will matter worldwide.
