In his recent column New York Times opinion writer Thomas B Edsall frames the (white) world in terms of "Conservative Nationalists" who seek to defend their borders and culture from an influx of immigrants and "Progressive Open Borders" advocates who seek free trade to make the world more liberalized and prosperous through fair commerce.
I chose to use his FRAMING as presented in the column as a a means of showing how CONTAINERIZATION works.
On this blog I have challenged (particularly) Black people to stop focusing on the immigration policy of the "Historically White Controlled Nation" in question. YOU ARE NOT ON "The Right Side Of History" for merely supporting increased immigration of non-Europeans into this country.
LOOK AT THE CONDITIONS IN THE 'SOURCE NATION' - and you will see that your only influence (and sadly your "only concern") is your battle in American politics, using this issue as yet another political proxy fight). For every 1 immigrant into the United States or Europe - there are more than 100 souls who "did not make it out".
I reject Mr Edsall's framing because it is "America / European Centric".

I have a video from "BBC 'Focus On Africa' " that I will post.

THESE PEOPLE WERE NOT FEATURED IN THOMAS EDSALL'S REPORT.
10 years ago the world was celebrating 'The Newest Nation In The World" - South Sudan.
Today various factions seeking power in the nation have committed mass murder and massive destruction of infrastructure and agriculture.
