Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Kill the Messenger: The Media’s Role in the Fate of the World - Why Blacks should support Black Media, NOW!

In her new book, “Kill the Messenger,” Armoudian explores how the media’s role in society has contributed to violence. She closely examines this through several case studies, most notably during the Rwandan genocide, where local media outlets pushed the perception that the destruction of the Tutsi population was a social good. However, Armoudian also points out in a detailed analysis, that media can play significant positive role in terms of democracy and human rights. For example, in Senegal, a national media campaign against the custom of female genital cutting (FGC) led many local communities to abandon the practice. Additionally, the advent of the internet and its multiple digital platforms for information dissemination has created a new dynamic in media.
