Ok, let’s break it down for you. My position on the Shithole-gate is this. The guys who leaked the private conversation DID NOT do it because they cared so much about Africa and Haiti.
They got back at Trump because they needed ANY TYPE of muck to unseat him as the president who is embarrassing their country on an hourly basis.
The circus has moved from slurs against Muslims, Latinos, American blacks, and now Africans and Haiti.
Trump hasn’t spared his closest advisers or American officials too. He attributed fraud and incompetence to his refusal to commission the the new American embassy in London.
Obama was half-Black. His worst decisions happened in Africa. He bombed Libya, shunned Nigeria, call it names and did zilch for us.
Tomorrow when Trump is replaced, the new occupant of that power seat WILL NOT dismantle the institutionally racist system against Blacks or Africans.
They will not force ExxonMobil to clean up the spills in Niger Delta.
They will not withdraw AFRICOM bases in Africa. And they will compete for influence with African countries.
They will not stop dumping GMO food on Africa.
They will not stop threatening Rwanda or any other country who falls into the trap of buying their second hand clothes with economic sanctions like they have consistently done.
SO, YOU CAN BEGIN TO GET MY POINT THAT THE WORDS WON;T BRAKE MY BONES. WHAT BREAKS OUR BONES IS OUR OWN LACK OF ORGANISATION.
And it’s down to the evil we permit from our public officials.
David Cameron was caught saying that the Nigerian leaders are ‘Fantastically Corrupt’! ARE THEY NOT?
Singapore was way behind Nigeria, Ghana and a few sub-Saharan African countries on ALL nation building indices in 1960!
Today, they have built a successful economy and are championing innovation massively.
We have fallen behind abysmally.
WHY SHOULD I BE BOTHERED WITH TRUMP WHO IS EXPECTED TO SAY DAFT THINGS ANYWAY AS MUCH AS I SHOULD BE BOTHERED WITH BUHARI WHO IS PLUNGING THE COUNTRY INTO THE ABYSS?
I think the African human is always afraid to look at the man in the mirror. We hate the truth.
The truth is with the resources Africa has, which has fed the world since Roman times on a global scale, sustained the British and French empires, became home to the Dutch and the Germans, we SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY EXCUSE TO BE AS BACKWARD AS WE ARE!
You have no idea that 80% 0f all charity adverts/solicitations are for people in Africa and South East Asia.
Every European kid watches these pathetic ads and grow up wanting to go offer charity in Africa!
Will the Libyan slavery debacle ever happen on any other continent and their AU equivalent do nothing? NOT EVEN A SANCTION. NOT ONE.
Human beings were roasted like pigs. They were bought and sold. Rape happened. Bestiality happened. Not a sanction against Libya from AU.
South Sudan only got independence after the Arab humiliation of them at Darfur. You would have thought that shame would be curtailed. Now, they too are a basket case.
African youths are perishing on the high seas trying to run away from their countries because the leaders have made it a shithole.
But these things do not bother us. The words of a lunatic is what we want to hold on to and make another protest which will give way to another protest soon.
I am not into that. You have gotta get wisdom like the Psalmist said. And you’ve gotta get understanding.
I would rather focus my anger where it should go. The stealing, looting and plundering mofos we elect into government and their civil service collaborators.
THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE EVERYDAY LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS ON THE NIGERIAN PEOPLE!
Enough said. Stop being eternally naive.
