Are Afrikan Countries “shitholes”, or Does the Truth Hurt?

12 01 2018

I am not defending Donald J. Trump’s alleged comments. However, in his brash way, (if he indeed did say these words, although he denies it) he has a manner at pointing out the obvious, and this is one of the reasons he resonated with the inbred mutant albino (white) electorate in the USA and became the president.

 

But the fact of the matter is that the term “shithole” is a euphemism for a place nobody would want to be for very long. More specifically, it is a place with ragged, unreliable, underdeveloped infrastructure, and severe socioeconomic problems that leads to desperation, poverty, and persistent disorganization. Does this describe any Afrikan nations you know? If not, then what is the reason for thousands of Afrikans to risk life and limb to journey to Europe on very dangerous vessels, piloted by very nefarious people to become second and third class inhabitants? No one risks their life to leave paradise.

 

To be more correct, it goes without saying that there are areas of Afrikan nations such as Ghana, Kenya, and Rwanda that have areas which are as developed as some other Eurasian nations and North America, but these are outliers. They are not the norm. Most of Afrika, (and I am speaking of areas populated by authentic Afrikan people) are still a long way from being dynamic and technologically developed nations. In many places the electricity is unreliable, roads and transportation systems are shoddy, and much of the technological infrastructure is owned and/or managed by foreigners. This includes engineering companies, water delivery systems, and health and medical facilities.

 

Case in point, if Afrikan countries were not “shitholes” as Trump allegedly chose to describe them, would Afrikan leaders like Mugabe and Buhari need to travel to Singapore or Europe for medical treatment? Apparently, they don’t trust their own hospitals and doctors to provide state of the art care. On a related note, I have personally seen doctors working in Afrika from Europe, America, or India who are barely competent and are only in Afrika because they can’t accomplish anything significant in their careers in their home country. The best and brightest Afrikan minds are enticed to go “study in the West” (or east) and then once they graduate at the top of their class at Harvard or Johns Hopkins University, we see a laudatory story about how they are an immigrant who “defied the odds” and “made it” in the USA or Europe. Typically they serve the white establishment and network of institutions while Afrikan nations continue their reliance on ne’er do well misfits, and misguided “do-gooders” with white skins from the west to “help Afrikans develop”. Wouldn’t it be better to just have world class institutions in Afrika in the first place so that Afrikan people can offer the superior care that we are already capable of doing? People often use the excuse that there are not enough skilled Afrikans to become doctors, engineers, pilots, and other technologically sophisticated professionals. Well, my question is, how long does it take to learn software engineering? Civil engineering? Medical science? Construction engineering? Piloting? Does is take more than 4-10 years of university studies? If not, after more than 60 years of independence, what is the excuse for not having these professionals trained, in place, and undertaking industrial projects?

 

Dr. Ben Carson is supposedly one of the best neurosurgeons in the world. He has written many books that are widely distributed around many Afrikan countries and they are read by many aspiring youth. However, he has not participated in developing the medical education system or the medical industry in any Afrikan country that I know of, why? Is he really qualified to be the HUD secretary in the USA when his background is in surgery?

 

Why is it that all of these sycophantic Afrikan-americans who slavishly follow the white liberals around are “offended” at Trump’s supposed remarks? It is because they would rather feel good about the liberal ideology of not pointing out uncomfortable truths which contradict their “one world, one people” fantasy. Do these Afrikan politicians, pundits, journalists, and media figures have any significant programs and policies which are designed to directly connect, and hence benefit Afrikan-americans and continental Afrikans in any demonstrable and measurable way? People decry the school to prison pipeline and the police shootings of Afrikan people in the USA, but where were all of these people when Dr. Umar Johnson and others like him wanted to start institutions to address these circumstances? They were either critical or silent. They are now only REACTING to media reports of what an anti-black man allegedly said (Trump). Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammed once said that “when you toss a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that yelps is the one who got hit“. That seems to never be truer than in this case.

 

Now, I am not in support of Dr. Umar Johnson per se, I am only using him as an example. I know he was ambushed on a “Black news show” recently and many have publicly criticized and defamed him even though the charges levied against him by the state of Pennsylvania were frivolous at best and baseless at worst, yet many took the opportunity to castigate him openly. Now, I have definite disagreements with what he says at times, but I have never wasted my time to go through the trouble of writing an article or posting a video completely about him and his issues.

 

Furthermore, I am aware that Oprah Winfrey has a school in Azania for girls. However, have any uniquely talented students emerged from that effort? I don’t know, I am asking, and I hope that there have been. This great video by Mr. Superboy223 explains the hypocrisy of Oprah Winfrey regarding Afrikan development both in the USA and Afrika and how she, and other Black people like her, are only interested in being recognized by inbred mutant albinos and don’t really give two shits about recognition from Afrikans or what Afrikan people think about them generally or specifically. They return to the Black community when they need their “I’m Black” card renewed like Omarosa did, then they continue trying to snuggle up to white institutions and white people themselves.

 

In conclusion, I am not impressed with this phony outrage people are displaying at Trump’s reported comments. I just have one word for Donald Trump if he did in fact make this statement (which he has apparently denied doing). MORE ! Give us more Mr. Trump! This is why I wanted him elected, even though I did not vote for him. I wanted him to take the mask off of this fake liberal claptrap so that Afrikan people can see the face of our enemy once again, and then clearly understand what me must be about and what we must be doing. Even if he did not describe Afrikan countries as such (which includes Haiti even though the African Union doesn’t think so) if this possibly media manufactured incident doesn’t inspire Afrikan people on the continent and in the diaspora to seriously take up the Afrikan Power Project, what will? More military incursions into Afrika like France, the USA, and now China are doing? What will it take to put aside our silly, infantile feelings and build a network of strong institutions, connected by resilient infrastructure, operated by a realistic and appropriate ideology designed for the survival and empowerment of actual Afrikan people? This is the only source of outrage we should have now. Not at what our enemies are saying about us, but at why we haven’t moved forward more than we have. I say again here, as I have said in other posts, where is the international Afrikan media outlet that is solely and jealously focused on communicating a viewpoint from the Afrikan worldview and Afrikan interests instead of repeating what the BBC, CNN, France 24, and CGTN have to say? Where are the Afrikan public affairs programs that discuss the real issues we have instead of allowing western media outlets to dominate the market with simplistic tripe like the shows African Voices or Hardtalk where they simply reprimand Afrikan leaders and give fluff pieces about white people and other non-Afrikans going into Afrika to help “empower women”. This creates an image in the public mind which is not useful to the goals of Afrikan power. Until, Afrikans really get serious about rectifying our position in the world, people like Trump and these “good white people” will take turns at insulting Afrikans directly or indirectly, and giving unnecessary aid and assistance in projects that go nowhere and only lead to a continuance of Afrikans’ dependency on others. This, in my opinion, bespeaks of a truly “shitty” situation, if not an outright shithole as Trump describes.

I agree 120%….this shit is made up to try and get Blacks to vote him out of office. Good Luck, I think Trump base is stronger because of the Oprahs and Obama. Many African immigrants who come to the US adopt a White Ideology and claim racism of African-Americans are fictitious…Since Trump became President they are now using the same rhetoric to try and get Blacks to vote. I dont think it will work.

You’re certainly right. It seems to be a massive media manipulation. Trump has denied making the statements, and I have updated this blog post to reflect that. However, I continually hear colleagues express fake outrage at this media-created incident, and they repeat the same facile talking points heard on CNN. I wonder if they really think Oprah would be a better president, or if they just want to again immerse themselves in the shallow feelings of inclusiveness that emanated during the Obama era. It’s probably a little of both. But the election is still a far away, this will be forgotten by then.

Do Black people really worship Whites this bad?

That’s a good question! As I am sure you suspect, it is not all Black people, but many do. Among the celebrities there are people like Van Jones, Oprah, and Michael Jordan. Among non-celebs, there are quite many too. I once worked with a Black man who was talking to me about racism and how we can’t get hired at good jobs because we are Black, then he ended the conversation by saying he wanted to go to law school and become a lawyer because, “I want to live with them” (referring to whites). He then walked over to this white girl we worked with and hugged her. She was giddy because she was getting the attention and adoration she craved. Many days later she said in my presence that we need to get rid of some people here (at the workplace), and motioned to me. No doubt it was because I always ignored her since we didn’t work together directly. So, there are Blacks who talk about racism, but secretly or openly desire to be with whites. I have more stories, but I’ll leave it there for now.

You have the same experiences as I. The Western Man Learns From His Mistakes and ow the Blacks who adore and worship Whites will be used against those who want to regain what we lost during slavery and colonialism.

You dropped some truth bombs in this post. But I give you props for keeping it real. I also agree about hypocrites like Oprah. But it’s the truth. And sometimes the truth hurts. Great post brother 👍🏿

Thanks! I tried to provide some prospective on this media event. Trump has said he did not make the statements. But, even if he didn’t, it is a good opportunity to talk about some real issues.

There is a video on Bhekezitha’s YT channel “ACBN Live” which reflects some of the points in this blog post. It was made by a Nigerian man who calls out the Nigerian diaspora for emigrating, rarely visiting Nigeria, and all the while living a relatively comfortable life as a doctor, professor, engineer, economist, etc in Eurasia or North America,…and then, getting mad when this type of statement is put out in the media. This needs to be called out. They can’t have it both ways. Either you work to build up your own nation and people and ignore the derogatory comments made by your enemies, or you accept the pay-off in the form of an easier, more comfortable lifestyle in another nation’s infrastructural system and just accept the insulting jabs as part of the price of doing business. There’s no two ways about it! I am not justifying this behavior by our enemies, but if you stick your head in the sand like many of us do, it won’t prevent these things from happening. They will continue until we have group power, not just individual wealth.

Yes I agree. Group power is of the utmost importance. There’s no way around that. I will have to check out that ACBN Live video. That sounds very interesting.

These are same Nigerians who will ignore Africa-American details of racism in this society as Blacks being petty but since Trump is elected now they are bemoaning racism.

Many Black peoples around the world want the freedom to serve Europeans and negate their own people.
