Many have questioned why a large amount of attention has been placed on France, while the horrific Baga massacre in Nigeria seemed to receive lukewarm attention.
CNN military analyst, Maj. Gen. James “Spider” Marks recently revealed a controversial perspective on the matter.

He goes on to state that if Boko Haram were in some other region of the world perhaps in “White Africa” (North Africa) or in the Middle East, it would cause more alarm.
“Very stark, very hard to say, but that’s the case right now,” he said.
