In his article "White Supremacy and Devaluation of African [Heritage] Lives," Blumenfeld explains how hunting animals in Africa is very similar to murdering black people.
Dr. Blumenfeld begins, "The philosophy and practice of white supremacy devalues all African and African heritage lives whether human or non-human animal. White supremacy links slavery in the "Americas" with the ongoing police killings of unarmed black people and to the killing of animals on the continent of Africa."
"Wealthy white people invade Africa," according to Blumenfeld, "and then track, entice, snare, capture, kill, sometimes skin, and behead majestic and noble animals... These so-called "hunters" kill not for food, but rather, for sport."
He writes, "When we look side by side of pictures of white people standing with big smiles beneath black people they hanged and white people standing next to African animals they killed, we witness many similarities in what some white people perceive as "tropies [sic].""
African animals' lives matter, Blumenfeld concludes, and are "directly linked" to human lives.
"In the final analysis," he says, "we must see the senseless murder and devaluation of the lives of animals on the continent of Africa as directly linked with the enslavement, segregation, denial of rights, and murder of African heritage people in the United States, for all this attests to the white supremacist plundering of life continuing to this very day."
