Hubert Collins, American Renaissance, May 17, 2020

By the end of the century, there could be more Africans than AsiansAfrica could actually have the largest population of any continent. Here’s a hint at what that future could be like.

The Cannibal Warlords of Liberia (2012)

The title says it all.

Empire of Dust (2011)

This examination of Chinese incursions into Africa shines a light on racial differences in every scene.

Robert Mugabe . . . What Happened? (2011)

Despite its liberal bias, this film shows how the West toadied to Robert Mugabe for decades.

Robert Mugabe and the White African (2009)

This is an up-close account of a white man’s battle to save his farm.

General Idi Amin Dada: A Self Portrait (1974)
