Does Obama Care That 234 Kidnapped Nigerian Schoolgirls Are Still Missing?

Nigerian girls

16 days have passed since hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped at gunpoint by militants who oppose western education for girls.

The militants of the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram arrived at the boarding school in the dead of night. They exchanged gunfire with armed security guards outside the school before storming the school and rounding up the girls.

The frightened schoolgirls were herded onto waiting buses and motor scooters by the gunmen who assured them, “Don’t worry. Nothing will happen to you.”

18-year-old Deborah Sanya was one of the 43 lucky ones who managed to escape from the militants’ base camp.

She said she and the other girls believed they were in safe hands, until the men started shooting guns and shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great” in Islam). That was when she knew the men had lied.

According to an article in the New Yorker magazine, the families of the 234 missing girls are wallowing in the midst of uncertainty. They complain that the government is refusing to update them on the efforts to find the girls.

Even more disturbing is a Washington Post report that the girls are being sold into arranged marriages, though the report hasn’t been verified.

In a similar incident involving the Boko Haram in November, dozens of Christian women were kidnapped and forced into domestic servitude. The women were eventually rescued by the military deep in the jungles.

But as CNN.com notes, “at the time of their rescue, some were pregnant or had children, and others had been forcibly converted to Islam and married off to their kidnappers.”

Meanwhile, President Obama spoke on the ongoing controversy surrounding racial comments made in private by LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

So far, Obama has not mentioned the 234 missing Nigerian schoolgirls. Neither has multimillionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who once built a school for girls in South Africa. Oprah is all over the news these days for allegedly expressing an interest in buying the Clippers team.

Imagine the media exposure the Nigerian schoolgirl kidnapping story would receive worldwide if Obama and Oprah cared about the missing girls as much as they do about pampered pro basketball players?

    Oh, and I don’t see (from what little i did read) how Obama is responsible for this? We got children missing right here in DC and he can’t make the responsible parties HERE do what’s right either. :shrug:

    Why should Obama care exactly – I am so sick of America being asked to act as international police…. we got our own problems here in the US to contend with…

    This is really sad those dang Africans are violent as hell and I wouldn’t be surprised if they already sold those girls into slavery…

    Sandra you are right about publicity but why does it have to come from Oprah and Obama just cause the kids are black why can’t Clooney care or you for that matter you have celebrity ears holla at yo peeps and see what they can do for these girls – instead of having standoffs with police maybe TI and the Game can round up some of their boys and persoanlly go look for the missing girls…

    Imagine would would happen if westerners shined a light on these missing girls. They were kidnapped due to the groups views on western ways invading their way of life. Either of the O’s condemn them and we’ll be seeing dead bodies everywhere. I bet he already has Seal team 15 on the ground looking for them. He don’t have to talk about it but he do have to be about it.

    Africa has long been the forgotten continent. Every few years a yt celebrity would make a big deal about an ongoing issue (aids epidemic, tribal genocide, etc), the world gets together, raise a few dollars while some celebs profit, people like bono and elton john look like saints and then the world no longer cares until another 10 or so years that someone wants to shine light again on Africa

    I agree. I empathize with them, really I do, but our government is our government and theirs is theirs.

    There are THOUSANDS of lil’ black chirrun here in the US that need to be saved err’day. Not just black, ALL colors.

    Ummmm this is a strictly NIGERIAN issue, what you want Sandra, a World War 3? Nigeria has to handle this and if they can’t, they can summon the UN. We can only offer monetary aid or weapons, if that at this point.

    Boko Haram has been terrorizing the country and its up to these greedy ass politicians in Nigeria to pool resources to do something about it. As of now, we just have to watch n wait.

    First off HI PYT :kiss: Yes these little young heffas got life all twisted, not all but a lot of them. Since when did it become cool to be so dumb and not worry about an education or your future. I really feel like what is our future going to be like with this new generation coming up and raising kids. Too many parents are not concerned with their children or their education, which make it harder for the parents that do because the out of control kids are influencing our children. #end rant

    Plus obama cant do ish. Human trafficking, kidnapping, selling into slavery, marriages, etc is considered to be a human rights violation which gives no one but local government jurisdiction unless its a UN affiliated country. If the country is not part of the UN, only the UN can place sanctions against them. Only thing Obama can do is send the troops if the UN calls for them as the US is the world’s primary army
