By Lincoln G. Peters Monrovia, April 16, 2024: Liberian opposition politician Alexander B.

By Othello B. Garblah In his 2020 article “What Racism Cost Us All,” written for the International Monetary Fund, Joseph Losavio bemoaned the significant economic cost associated with racism. “Systemic racism is a global problem. It is real, and a robust moral argument for addressing it exists. However, one factor that is often ignored in this critical conversation is the broader economic dimension. Because it prevents people from making the most of their economic potential, systemic racism carries significant economic costs. A less racist society can be an economically stronger one.” Mr. Losavio wrote. This is exactly the situation Liberia is facing. The country’s racist clause enshrined in its 1986 Constitution has made many non-negros or persons of non-negro decent rethink their investment in the country. It is non-debatable that Liberia has been and remains a racist country since its independence in 1847, at least according to Article 27 (b)...

Nimba County Senator Prince Johnson’s calls for UN investigators into perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Liberian Civil War has added a twist to the ongoing debate over the establishment of a war and economic crimes court here. By Jonathan Browne Monrovia, April 10, 2024: Former rebel general, Senator Prince Yormie Johnson, one of the key actors of the Liberian civil war listed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for prosecution, trashes the TRC report here. Instead, he wants the United Nations to come and conduct an independent investigation into perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

He notes that Commissioners of the TRC were divided on its final report and recommendations with four against three.  Senator Johnson’s position followed the signing of...
