There is a lot of misinformation being spread around right now. The shootings at Garissa University in Kenya took place in April not yesterday or today

The shootings were similar to what happened yesterday in Paris, the death tolls are so far remarkably close. Both were horrific.

The reason the articles seem to be trending today is because people are comparing the two events, as in how they were reported on and what happened during the events. 

Please please please, before you post news articles look at when they were published. History repeats its self, it is important to know which history you are reporting on. 

I know a lot of you missed what happened in Kenya, but we do not need this sort of misinformation spreading around. No one is reporting on it right now not because news sites to not care, but because they have already reported on it. Whether their reports were sufficient or not is another debate.

Why is it....

That we are ignoring to 147 men, women and children who Lost their lives in a terrorist attack in Kenya?

I don’t mean to sound like an asshole, but it’s a little bit ridiculous that we have to pay so much attention to particulate attack in particular parts of the world. Ignoring all these other places that are being attacked in Africa and the Middle East, such as Kenya or Palestine. I know some of you or even a lot of you haven’t heard about the attack in Kenya, but please be sure to keep your eyes and ears open to anything that happened and give your prayers to everyone that has suffered at the hands of these violent attackers.
Kenya Attack That Left 147 Dead Compared To Paris Attack News Coverage
The way Kenya is currently trending on Twitter and Facebook shows that folks have plenty to say about the Kenya attacks in comparison to the news coverage that

the Paris attacks have received. As reported by CNN, 147 people were killed at Garissa University College in Kenya back on April 2, but news hounds might only remember the horrific attack at the Kenya college as a blip on the radar in the news cycle in comparison to the equally horrific Paris attacks.

According to the website popularity tracking list called “What’s Hot” on, an Amazon company, a BBC News article about the 147 people killed in the Kenya attack by an Islamist group is the sixth most popular URL on their list as of this writing…..


Stop sharing Garissa victims’ dead bodies images

I find it utterly disrespectful that people are circulating photos of blood soaked bodies of the Garissa massacre victims. I understand that people are trying to be conscious and raise awareness. However sharing those images to prove a point is wrong and dehumanising. We didn’t need to see the bodies of Charlie Hebdo’s attack for the world to be horrified, or watch the videos of ISIS’ beheadings. The Garissa victims and their families deserve dignity! Don’t you find disturbing that when a tragedy happens in Africa, people feel the need to post images of dead bodies while we hear nothing about the victims? No names, no history, nothing. Very dehumanising indeed.

Let us never forget what happened to the 147 students in #Kenya that lost their lives earlier this year. People are making an argument over the #PrayForParis over #PrayForKenya movements. Let’s remember that the people that lost their lives don’t care about who is getting the most coverage. Let us all just pray for the innocent. #PrayForEveryone #SomethingsWillNeverChange #RememberTheInnocent…

No one is asking that you choose between #PrayforParis or #PrayforKenya or #BlackLivesMatter

They’re asking that you notice the difference between how media covers each tragedy.

Who gets humanized, demonized, you know the drill.

But I mean if you’re really doing your prayers if you’re really about change you’re past the debate and you’re taking action.
