Deceptive journalism as Washington Post changes picture depicting Africa in bad light

Washington Post

There’s so much deception in those who control information, so much for the western media, both print and electronic.

Africa, to the Western audience, has often been sold as poverty-stricken, diseased and ‘nothing good can come out of Africa.

The problem with such information is that from that sectarian lense, one wouldn’t be able to picture anything different. Even if they search on google, the same images of death and destruction is what they find.

It’s been argued and it’s true that Artificial Intelligence is racist. If you don’t believe me, then go on Google and search keyword, ‘beautiful people’, ‘poor people’ and see the results.

There are places in Africa that look like New York, and there are places in USA (especially West Virginia) that look like Embakasi Pipeline; dirty and neglected.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery.

The editor of Washington Post, a United States of America paper published a deceptive picture on their story about Africa receiving a donation for Covid-19 vaccinations from MasterCard.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/06/08/mastercard-foundation-donation-africa-covid/

They changed the picture afterwards but didn’t give an explanation as is required by ethical journalism.

The first picture depicts Africa as hell: Washington Post

Washington Post later changed to this without explanation

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, the world is beautiful, Africans are rich, the quality of life and the system of governance might not be at par with the West, but most Africans own things, while most westerners live on credit.

A slave system of life where if one loses their job, they end up in the streets, where they are being asked to pay a loan for underpants, phone, clothes…it is laughable.

In Africa, if one loses their job, they end up in the rural area where they own land.
