AFRICA: THE WORLD IS WATCHING US, by Kifon Emile

E.C.  Picture Out of Africa

“The world is watching at us, as we move through this highway of history, with thoughts that we commit the same errors of the past and somber into doom. Vigilance and governance is the key if we shall cross safely into the promise land of greatness.”

Ultimate Governance Code

It is not too long ago when we were the cradle of the world’s finest civilizations [3000 BC]. Men thronged from all over the world to come and to learn, admire, and contribute to the intellectual edifice that our people had designed through hard work and diligent ingenuity.

Even though most of us migrated to the south, we still kept the spirit of hard work and sacrifice. During this time, the world was still three dimensional. There was the North, Hellenistic; the East: mystic; and the South: holistic.

They were the dominant cultural standards which defined for us our perspective of the time. The world could be appreciated either through the rational model of the Hellenistic world, or through the mystical Asiatic model or again through a more comprehensive approach that considered the real as a whole comprising all models of reality.

After about five millennia, the world is now barely two dimensional. We can measure a predominance of the Greek world view harbored in the West and a very minimal reference to the Asiatic East. Or more strictly, the world has become one dimensional.

That two dimensional rational model characterizes capitalism, democracy and the instruments that go with them, e.g., debt money, industry, rule of law, human rights etc. It is a long process through which our role has been systematically reduced through the application of engineered strategies ranging from the cruelest to the most diplomatic the world has ever known. The consequence is that we are now more subject to state power and its police instruments of execution on all fronts.

But what actually went wrong? And what led to our decline and prolonged subjugation?

The genealogy of irregularities over thousands of years differs in variety and intensity from place to place. But some of these remain outstanding and are worth mentioning.

It should be mentioned that since the fall of the Egyptian civilization and other empires which had relative strength over its territories [Mali, Zulu etc], most of our societies were very vulnerable due to the limited educational, military and economic adaptation.

The educational limits were characterized by the fact that most of us had an oral tradition wherein detail knowledge was easily lost and its transmission often led to distortions and misappropriations. Knowledge is a cumulative process of experiences. Oral traditions made it hard and eventually impossible to build and enrich present generations with past experiences. This explains why the same errors were committed repeatedly by different people over different periods.

Military weakness was another vulnerability that exposed us to our neighbors and also put us at risk to foreigners against whom sticks and stones could do very little. Even though not all battles are won with weapons, having them always constitute a source of defense.

Concerning the economic strength, most of our economic activity was based on natural harvest: harvesting from nature, doing subsistence level agriculture and the primary mode of trade by barter. But what is more?

We created endless divisions among our own people in the name of tribes. Some were friendly while others were made to be enemies.

Like most cultures, tribes have always existed but they become dangerous when they become the sphere within which we define humanity, charity, justice and love. In such an isolated and free floating sphere, the other tribes naturally loses inherent human rights because he doesn’t belong to a particular tribe that holds a strategic power over a given territory.

It is precisely this artificial boundary that was exploited by the west when they landed on Africa in search for labor and minerals. None of our societies were left untouched. Everyone suffered the consequences of ignorance, division, and greed and the failure to have established a viable functional economic model not only made the trade of humans seem profitable but also normal.

But the world was watching us…hoping that we would learn from our past mistakes and make better decisions. We didn’t. And when we did, we never did so effectively. That is why the same people had to come back and domesticate us in our own homeland – what others call colonization.

Again, we were subjugated using the same old schemes by the same people while some of us saw in them good people who just wanted to make us better. Make us better?

The old tricks worked. Our knowledge failed us and our know-how didn’t defend us sufficiently. But then, we should remember there is no society that has not been penetrated by the western powers at varying degrees with the same objective.

Thanks to the bravery of some among us, independence was won through blood and iron. Those brave ones have always existed but in most cases their merits are not illustrated enough nor appreciated even though they have served great causes over centuries.

From its very beginning to this day with independence, we came to understand that things shall change. We have come to understand that we have learned the game and that we now take our destinies seriously and put our fate in our own hands to make a difference in governance.

In other parts of the world people also fought for their independence and won it. Now it is time to give an account of our character and on what we have done with the power we have acquired, to educate our young, to expose them to freedom, and to transfer our natural resources to them.

At an age when most people have made tremendous progress, it is now our turn to make the moves that will raise us up.

The laws of nature have been deciphered; information has been made abundant and available; technology has been made cheap and easy to learn; and many great things have been discovered. Above all, we have men and women who have studied in the same schools as others and given the same practical skills. Today, ignorance cannot be tolerated as an excuse!

No one has asked us to discover gravity, it is has already been done; to invent laws of physics; to land on the moon; or to discover the cure for Ebola. No one has asked us to do these things but they watch us day and night.

Our greatest discovery lies simply in learning from our mistakes. To create cultures of good governance instead of ethnocentric ones; to apply the rule of law; to transform our own resources for the benefit of our own people, build good roads, schools, hospitals, take care of the sick and old, protect the weak and fight the opponents of yesterday, get unified, eliminate war and live in peace as children in one family. Is that too much? Just being what we are called to be by the natural principle which unites us all?

If we cannot do these things, then we are only justifying the fact that the others were right in all the wrongs they did to us and that we have confirmed that we are incapable of managing our own lives.

I am Africa.  I watch over you and shall watch over you.  All I request of you is to change your ways and be a better African for yourself, your children (home and abroad) and in the world.

CAMEROON: THE GREAT PARADOX, by Kifon Emile

Camaroon 1

In 1884 I was colonized by the Germans who, with a reign of brutality, created plantations that served the citizens of their homeland. This was part of a sharing deal of Africa by the European countries.

During the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, France along with its allies won and I was again colonized by the French whose rule was characterized by duplicity and exploitation.

About 10% of my territory [north, west, south, and west] was under the British rule that, through indirect administration, showed little interest in the region.

From 1914-1960, French rule dominated my territory. The France made French the official language while English was made the official language of the portion it controlled.

For half a century, those two nations, skilled in the art of exploitation, taught a small group of my people how to manage an administration using the skills taught to them by the west while expanding the cocoa, banana, and coffee plantations left by the Germany.

The selected few who assisted the colonizers had a fragmented education and had never been the real rulers of my people. The colonizers worked in collaboration with their missionaries whose primary tool was the Christian religion. They indoctrinated my people in the art of submission, and blind faith in the absence of reasoning. Parallel to that the colonizers defined new rules while criminalizing most traditional values.                                    

While wondering why my people had been so vulnerable, I took delight in those who had the courage to fight for independence so that my name could be restored to its honorable state. As such, in 1960, I got my independence and my people were joyful to be liberated from the masters whose rule had demonstrated with clarity that it served primarily the interests of the colonizer.

My first president Ahmadou Ahidjo, a young man known for his courage and ambitious moves, instituted a one party system: the Cameroon National Party, a practice which was common among my fellow states.

With the objective to unify a territory with almost 250 ethnic groups, one party seemed to be the best way to harmonize a heterogeneous social landscape, and the public administration played a great role in this integration. 

By 1982, Ahmadou Ahidjo resigned and assigned Paul Biya as the successor. A decade later, a wave of democratization was sweeping across many nations and I was not excluded. But despite many constitutional reforms designed to conform to democratic principles, Paul Biya is still in power, thereby making me, Cameroon, a new pontificate State, or more correctly a democratic caliphate where power is being concentrated disproportionately at the top and uprooted at the bottom.

The result of this is the destruction of the dream that my people had. Freeing themselves from their former colonial masters has led them into the snares of new masters who continue not only to neglect their own welfare but remain loyal to those former patrons who continue to exploit them using the present leaders – the comprador bureaucracy.

It is this system of bureaucracy that has led to the corruption of the idea of independence. Allegiance is still paid to the former colonial master who takes pride in the misery of my people to create a good name through dependence on charity, international aide, an activity already criminalized in its conception, execution, and evaluation.

Although I have been patient and in pain waiting for my people to grow in maturity, I have realized that I am running out of time and out of patience. I had said to myself that they had to make errors and learn from their mistakes but, regrettably, these mistakes seem to be normalized, internalized, and even institutionalized in some cases.

For example, the modification of the constitution in 2008 removed limitation to presidential mandates thereby giving the present caliph, who is already 81 years of age, the possibility to run for office again in 2018. That modification despite that fact he has a record of unmatched mediocrity in the domain of governance and economy.

To sustain such unconventional norms, intellectuals have been bought off or skillfully eliminated in order to limit critics. While journalists have been killed, and others driven into exile, the opposition has been carefully weakened thus leaving only the president to appear to be the most capable political man under the circumstances.

This patrimonial rule, rooted in a tradition of uncontested authority, pride, non discursive deliberations and inevitable corruption, puts me in a situation of paralysis where I remain immobile, angry, sad, frustrated, morose, and jealous. I feel that way especially when I see my brothers of the same age making progress: Indonesia, China, Dubai, Thailand, Brazil etc.

But then, I have always held that society always corrects itself. In fact, many other societies have corrected their past errors and have made progress and left their bad ways aside. With time and patience running against me, I have found this situation a little different and slow. When I question the fundamental nature of man, I see that it is one, and such a premise leads me to the conclusion that the processes shall be certainly different but the result shall be the same: change in favor of fellow man and society.

Camaroon 3

Before being optimistic, I have always reminded myself that it is still dark, and that the situation remains scary especially with regard to the urgency of the situation. For example; when agriculture flourished in the 70s, I remember officials from South Korea who came to visit my leaders to learn how they could make similar triumphs. But in a few years, South Korea had made progress in all domains of life while my own people languish under the ambush a deceitful rule. I feel betrayed.

While the per capita GDP of a South Korean is about $30.000.00 a year, that of my citizens is barely $1,300.00. But I have been generous enough. Although I have a vast territory with about 13% arable land of which just 2% is in active exploitation, my people still import almost 400,000 tons of rice at the cost of about $200 million.

Camaroon 2

 

My kindness has been boundless to my people, besides tolerance, I have given them gold, diamond, cobalt, aluminum, oil, bauxite, nickel, retile just to name a few. What my brothers and sisters in Japan have only up to 10%, I have them all in abundance. But it is not serving the best interest of my people. So, I have decided to keep my promise. These resources shall remain in my good earth, but if leaders don’t change their ways, they shall remain in servitude due to their own ignorance, greed, and injustice.

I am Cameroon, presently in a paradox;

A big nation with small realizations;

Many resources but little to show for it;

Too many intellectuals but few productions;

Fertile fields but hungry citizens;

Consume what I don’t produce but produce what I don’t consume;

Good laws but unjust application;

 

 

 

                                                                           

THE HIP HOP CULT: BLACK WOMAN HATERS, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

Hip Hop Suicide

Black women are under attack; they are the target of a global mass media effort to dehumanize them. One powerful instrument of mass media is the hip hop cult of black female haters and those who follow them.  

Hip Hop is a cult. It is a cult because it turns on a unique set of values unlike any values among civilized people. Their values are life denying values.

Hip Hop’s followers, like all true believers, are committed to acting out their life denying values whether it is with drugs and alcohol, promoting atheism, or promoting the belief that human life has no spiritual purpose. Their culture is a culture of debasement and that makes it a culture of suicide.

They are a whole generation of young African Americans. Those born within impoverished inner cities during the crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s and who have been raised on the denigrating lyrics of countless hip hop performers and a culture of inner city violence.

They are a generation of hip hop cultists. They have internalized hip hop symbolism and stereotypes into their subconscious minds and act with a minimum of reason and forethought.

They have elected as their leaders performers who spew out the hip hop message of white supremacy as they are paid to do by major white financial institutions.  Why do they attack black women? They attack black women because they have adapted the white supremacist myth of black women.

There is a lie being circulated on some Youtube programs propagated by some black men about some black women. The men circulating the lie are young black men between 17 and 40. These men have learned or are being paid to circulate a wholly negative view of black women. Their expressions are full of emotive terms.

Most of the discussions fail to make logically cogent arguments and argue without support of statistical facts.  Black women are falsely blamed for getting pregnant as if black girls and women inseminate themselves! Further, they blame black girls and women for being on welfare.  

Those who make such allegations get thousands of hits and likes on You-Tube from other black men. These followers feed on the lies because it helps them to rationalize their subconscious white supremacist mental orientation.

The show hosts falsely present themselves as economic innovators as well as being intellectual or knowledgeable and who aim to enlighten listeners when in reality they are the non musical compliment of the hip-hop cult of black woman haters.

The lie suggests that a large percentage of black girls and women between the ages of 15 and 30 years of age decide or with willful intent conspire to manipulate black men into relationships to become pregnant so that they can collect food stamps and qualify for welfare cash benefits. The black men who circulate that lie are misogynists.

You can recognize them by their language or speech. They refer to black women as ‘hoes’, ‘bed-winches’, hood-rats, Thot, bastard baby-makers, and many other negative words. The men who use such terminology hate black girls and women. They even have deep rooted hatred for their mothers.  

They hate their black mothers who raised them despite her sacrifice and her struggle to raise them without a committed man. They hate her because they hate being black and they don’t know how to be a man. They then transfer all their conflicted emotions onto all black women and girls. Why such hate and venomous words?

They need to do that so that they can rationalize their rejection of black girls and women. They do it in order to make themselves feel justified for marrying a woman of a different race or so they can be comfortable with being closet homosexuals. They are like the white slave masters’ black overseer who beat the black slave women willingly for the slave master and is then rewarded.

Such black men are genetic racists. They are genetic racists because they psychologically subscribe to classical white supremacy. They are no different than the hip-hop cult of black woman haters who get paid by white men to spew out the most hateful satanic lyrics about black women in U.S. history. 

They are no different than the Ku Klux Klan because they react with fear and sexual repulsion to the same subconscious network of images, stereotypes, and failed personal experiences as white supremacists murderers whether they are police officers or district attorneys or state and federal judges who hate all black people. 

The fact is that neither women nor men have children with the willful intent of qualifying for welfare. The fact is that men and women are bio-chemically motivated to be attracted to each other sexually.  Black women have a sex drive. The sex drive in both men and women is constant no matter what their life situation.

 The emotional and physical pleasure experienced in the sex act is centered in the brain of both men and women and reinforces the desire for more sexual contact.  But there is also another dimension to the act of sexual intercourse.

The sexual act occurs within either a responsible or irresponsible socio-economic condition. Metaphorically, a couple will have sex on a bed or on the floor; either on clean sheets or on dirty sheets. They will clean themselves with dirty towels or with clean towels. Welfare dependence results when the context of sexual activity by men and women is socio-economically inadequate.  A man and women who are sexually involved are members of all other couples who like them are sexually involved on any given day.  This fact is substantiated by the fact that thousands of babies are born on the same day.

The sex drive in men and women is a constant instinctual impulse. And, because at least one third of black women live at or below the poverty line, it is highly likely that a large percentage of black women are going to act out sexually under poor social conditions. 

What I mean by poor social conditions is that many black women will engage in sexual activity with whom they can when they can. That is more likely because the marriage rate for black people has been on the decline for over 40 years. Marriage is rare among black Americans today. Serial sexual relations are the new norm. The side effect of serial relations is that 72% of all black babies are now born to single parent families.

Poverty, low education, and incompetent black men qualify black women for welfare. Do this mental experiment, imagine if family courts awarded physical custody of children 3 years and older to fathers as a rule, would black women in those same social conditions still have serial sexual relations? The answer is yes. 

The answer is yes because the sex drive in all people is constant; the sex drive is always on.  The problem is that the sex drive of black people was economically profitable under slavery, but beyond the slave era black sexual energy has increasingly become an economic deficit. Since the profits have dried up, that same sexual energy is being manipulated by white institutions in such a way so as to cause as much conflict and competition between black men and women as possible.  

The slave master engineered the cultural framework of both black women and men. The slave system was made in such a way that the value of marriage was negated.

By preventing marriage, the slave master administered a patriarchal structure with white slave masters as the patriarchs. Beneath him were his wife then his children and other relatives in that order. Those next were the white overseers. After them came the slaves. At the bottom were black women, their children, and black men. Because marriage was not allowed, black women formed a matriarchal structure in the slave quarters and at the same time they were economically dependent on the white patriarch master.

The black man’s relation with the black female matriarch was competitive. Their relationship was competitive because they were pitted against each other in the field and as house servants.  Since all the profits went to the patriarch there was no economic support from black men for black women, thus black men were made inconsequential in the minds of black women except for sexual intercourse and breeding. On the basis of their slave roles they formed negative stereotypes of each other.

Black women had babies and may or may not have been with the men who fathered the children or it was the slave master’s child or children, and that truth had to be suppressed.

Under those conditions, dependence was learned by all black people. The master giveth and the master taketh away. But babies born of black women were added value to the slave master’s business. The slave master profited economically because the cost to feed pork guts to another slave baby was less than the money he earned by those babies as they grew.

The end of slavery brought about a new form of patriarchy. Government stepped into the boots of the slave master. But it was not a perfect fit because many black people sought to be families with economic self-sufficiency. However, many other black people did not form family structures nor did they find economically viable vocations. From them formed a culture of poverty.

After the failure of reconstruction and 1890, the southern Dixi-crats or Democratic Party reinstituted black economic dependence under the Roosevelt administration’s Aid to Families with Dependent Children.  They did it to get the black vote and to kick start the economy. The economy was fueled by funneling money from the U.S. Treasury to banks through poor black and white women.  

Now, Government patriarchy could operate in full force. It also reinstituted black matriarchy in poor black neighborhoods because black women had some monetary power. For that reason, black women shared in both the benefits of patriarchy and in the exercise of power in their matriarchal neighborhoods. One of the side effects has been the ongoing competition and negative feelings between black men and women.

Perhaps there is a conspiracy. But by no stretch of the imagination has there been a thought out conspiracy by poor black women to have children to get welfare money. Welfare dependence on the part of black women was and is because black men were and are economically marginalized. Black men were made economically incompetent during the depression in the 1930s as black men are generally economically incompetent today.

Thomas Malthus, a Scottish philosopher, explained that government can control the sexual energy of poor or marginalized people. He stated that to reduce the population of an unwanted people the state must engineer social conditions which negate marriage and blur sexual boundaries. That is the case today and its negative impact is evident.

Black babies born today are generally profitable for prisons, the welfare system, and for SSI dependencies. But each of those industries is beginning to cost more to upkeep than the profits once made. With the cost benefit shift, prisons are being closed; while over the last 40 years 22 million black fetuses have been aborted.

The fact is that demographically black women’s fertility rate and birth rate across all age ranges between 15 to 45 years of age has been falling since 1960. Today, black women on average have a lower fertility rate than white women. In fact, it is now about 1.8 babies born per black women between 15 and 45 in a given year.  The black birth rate is below replacement level. At that rate of fertility decline there will be very, very few black people after the year 2047. Thomas Malthus was right.

The facts make clear that white people control the sexuality of black people. At the ground level one cannot see the hand of white men manipulating their sex drive. A close look reveals the fact that white men manipulate our sexual energy through the medical system, the cult of hip-hop black women haters, and misogynistic pseudo thinkers.

Metaphorically, white men have their hands on black men’s penises and black women’s vaginas by controlling the conditions in which African Americans act out their natural instinctual energies.

Lastly, the misogynistic cult of pseudo thinkers and hip hop coons should get this; black men generally are the ones penetrating black women’s vaginas and leaving them with a fatherless child.

The problem of unwanted black babies is not due to black women. The problem is due to black men who don’t train their daughters to be moral and disciplined. The problem is black men who verbally and sexually abuse black girls; the problem is black fathers and step-fathers who commit incest.

So, black men, instead of denigrating black women you should take a look in the mirror at yourself because if some black women are dependent on welfare and food stamps it is because they don’t have a man who can support the family he made.
