Hey I’m NOT Nigerian! Let me fly!

Post looks at the way that this foiled terrorism plot is being used as a new way to negatively stereotype Africans. Doesn’t matter if we’re Nigerian, Congolese, Senegalese, etc. The world still sees as one country. Many media outlets hear the word “Nigerian”, but they’re thinking “African”. The word terrorist can now be added to the African images of war, AIDS, famine, and amputees. As someone who has been to 10 African countries, this is just not the complete picture. This foiled attack was a near tragedy for American, but is already tragic for all Africans as the media has a field day with this attacker. Thanks again…
