One thing Black-Americans need to be sure to do more of when involving themselves in African issues is to keep up with what African journalist are saying about a particular African government. This way they will be better informed on what is actually happening in a country.

The exchange over Robert Mugabe showed how Mugabe is viewed as a freedom fighter by many Black-Americans but is viewed more harshly by many Africans. Jesse seemed to come with some defensivness over Omoyele's observation on how Mugabe is viewed by Black-Americans vs how many Africans view him. Jesse should check what Zimbabwe's journalist are saying on Mugabe.
