Why does UMOJA magazine focus on positive news?

We focus on positive news purposefully, for a reason. Mainstream media has a history of focusing on Black struggles without a balance of achievements and victories; negative statistics; athletes without a corresponding balance of achievement in other fields; criminality, without a corresponding balance of other news. Athletes, riots and thugs. That's how mainstream media has positioned Black people.

Black people must unlearn this tendency to see themselves only in negative and adverse terms. We don't know how to recognize who we are and what we have done. We don't know how to recognize and compliment one another. UMOJA is part of a growing movement to change the image of how we see ourselves and how we talk about each other. In this movement, we are a leader.
