Algeria’s Black Fear

Until recently, the Sahara desert has never been a destination for black African migrants, but as trans-Saharan travel from Niger to Algeria has increased due to closures of other migration routes to Europe, Algerian desert towns and cities have become the new landing spots for many black migrants. The “influx” of black migrants into the Sahara has sparked racial tensions between them and Arab North Africans, with numerous attacks by Arabs against black migrants occurring throughout Algeria. Anti-migration efforts have focused on the Sahara desert, the new path to Europe, deporting thousands of black African migrants from Algeria and “repatriating” or dumping them in Niger each year. Since Niger allowed Algerian authorities to cross into its territory to repatriate migrants in 2015, many black migrants have reported racist treatment from Algerian security forces during deportation, including theft and violence. In addition to direct police action against black migrants, Algerian officials have deployed xenophobic attacks against migrants in the press to drum up anti-migrant sentiment.

    They will make slaves of the acceptable ones and you can only guess about the rest.

        well we can hope, anyway. But, if all those black Africans refused to be slaves and sex objects, they will probably go for each other’s throats – which be a very good thing.

    I’m wishing for these two population groups to do abhorrent things to one another and in the process to leave no one standing.

    And you can bet the blood feuds between the African Moslems and Algerians. A lot of African Moslems will be agasht and disgusted by the Algerian and Arab racism

    Hmm, maybe they should have stayed home? If like they want us to believe, and Africa is the cradle of civilization then it should be the most advanced place on earth and have it better than anyone else, it is not like they lack for resources. I wonder why they are not leading civilization ……….
