cuz during the last year hundereds of egyptians arrived to work in Khartoum, they took over small jobs like construction and resturants services..
those workers are not put in ghettoes, they are treted well, in simple words, they are having a good life. I don't remember seeing any sad egyptian motherfucka here in Khartoum, matter fact their stupid loud laughter on buses makes me sick when I remember the misrable lifes of Southern Sudanese construction workers who go drink cheap liqueur after they finish their shift burning their souls, I see egyptians finish their shifts and go have some cappuccino in Ozone or Afra mall.
well, they do have some trouples..
"Sudan Government apologizes for police assault on Egyptian workers" was a headline months ago, which is some funny shit cuz the same police that apologizes to the egyptians is the same one that been and still practice brutality on sudanese citizens, we never heared them apologize for us. but thats a diffrent story.
what about sudanese people in egypt?
I read this testimony from an egyptian blogger who is "Disgraced to be Egyptian" a while ago, talking bout the sudanese refugees situation in Cairo, and it's really shocking.
Refugees lined up and started warming up too but saying ‘allah akbar’, ‘la ilaha ella allah’ and ‘hasbona allah wa neama al wakil’ meaning there is no god but allah and only him we delegate to handle our injustice. The Christians chanted Halleluiah. And this set identity for the war players. The few civilian audience started cheering for the Egyptian army against the dirty / black / Christian parasites. Yes, there was no humanity in the scene.
people and nubians are a great sketch in egyptian comedy movies.
But sudanese immigrants in Cairo streets suffer something more than getting shot to death at the borders, or kicked by egyptian police force, or facing stupid egyptians racism.
they are also killing each other
yub, blieve it or not, sudanese immigrants started forming their own gangs in the streets of Cairo.
Al-Jazeera People and Power article worth reading
Inspired by American hip-hop culture, these gangs provide identity and security to their members. Gangsters wear baggy clothes, have their own gang signs, carry knives and have turf wars. Gang life revolves around making music, fighting and holding parties.
anyone watched Blood Diamond? you saw them soldiers from RUF bumping Tupac's music right? what does revolution got to do with gangsta rap? can't answer that question better than Immortal Technique man, read his article Gangsta Rap is Hip Hop. these "Lost Boys" are violent, we can't argue that. thought they didn't receive them isreli Uzi's yet, but knives are they main tool for now.
Maliah Bekam, 24, came to Egypt to escape the civil war in southern Sudan, but he died in a pool of his own blood in a Cairo street.
I hope they realize that they are the roses 2Pac is talking about in his poem
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Provin nature's laws wrong
Funny it seems but, by keepin its dreams
it, learned to breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from the concrete
when no one else even cared
No one else even cared..
The rose that grew from concrete
