The Berlin conference started The African Black mans burden: How Africa subsidizes the west!



It just blows me away knowing Africa was divvied up at the Berlin Conference and after Colonization ended new lines were drawn up dividing Muslim people and others that hate each other, and what we did in the same regard to the middle east. The conference ushered in a period of heightened colonial activity on the part of the European powers, while simultaneously eliminating most existing forms of African autonomy and self-governance. Berlin Conference 1884: The divvying up of Africa

The so called civilized countries raped Africa taking all the natural resources they could take in   order to feed the machine of the industrial Revolution. The industrial Revolution: Natural resources and sustainability

We took what we wanted reset the boundaries putting traditional enemies in the position of fighting for ownership and not having the resources to support themselves and left. Africa as you know for most is a beautiful but harsh environment Despite what we hear as an effort to help Africa here too we are not the solution but the problem.

As you know, Hillary has been visiting Africa! We supposedly often "help" Africa and let them know about it as often as possible. Hell we created much of their trouble with the exception of their natural environment which is getting more harsh and we probably contributed to that too. So you have to agree with Kenyan's when they cheered Kenya's Prime Minister Raila Odinga when he declared that we in Africa do not need any lectures from the West. Damn straight they need the tools and the training to help themselves.

She should ask why is Africa at war with itself and admit why. She should ask why is Africa poor and admit we have not given them the tools to help themselves. Despite our so called help More than 300 million people south of the Sahara have to survive on less than a dollar a day. I was caught off guard when I found out that Two thirds of the poorest countries in the world are in Africa, also 34 of the 35 states with the lowest life expectancy. That truly is unbelievable. Please read this grim analysis! Africa: Black Man's Burden - How Continent Subsidizes the West

* In closing, What we did to Africa, the middle east, Afghanistan, India, Pakistan etc is terrible. I reiterate that I am sick of hearing we have done nothing wrong. Hell we have done nothing right! Africa has to be the richest continent in natural resources on the planet and it is one of the poorest! Africa is possibly the largest producer of raw materials in the world.

Mineral and Agricultural resources are mined by peasants earning pennies and taken to the rest of the world to enrich everyone else. The Black man, women, Africa, I am really sympathizing and we have to start making things right. One of our friends a couple days ago said if we do the right thing today much of the transgressions of the past will be forgiven. Let us get started!

You are so right, if you take all the trouble spots in Africa (and the world) and go back through the years, what you find is the same bunch of colonial troublemakers at root of everything. The divide and conquer mantra ruled the roost. While the USA is not a colonial power in the true sense of the word, the hundreds and hundreds of military bases scattered all over the globe, gives an idea of their intent. I could talk for hours on this subject.

Amen to that Jim. We the Dutch are also guilty, and the French. We all took a slice and, after raiding the land, we left.

But what about your country? Did you not do the same to your native Americans? How are they living now?

It is sickening knowing we have gotten where we are on the backs of others and our so called leaders say we did nothing wrong. Hell we can atleast admit it and move forward.

Hi Monique
Yes we did the same thing to my people. I am part American Indian and french sometime during the Revolution and Emglish and Irish off the boat in time for my Grandfather born in 1885 to fight WW1 for us!

Great article and good comments!
Monique is very right, it also shocks me, to know what all our forefathers have done and believing in reincarnation... well, well, you can guess the rest.

Didn't know about your genetical line, James, but you know what?!
I was wondering about that, because your skincolour doesn't match your diet. Isn't that funny?!

P.S. sent you a mail re healthcare. That's really gonna piss you off what they write there...

an average patriot said...

Sarah I have to laugh. I have always called myself a homogenized American! You are a riot, I never heard of skin color matching diet but I do know vegetarians are generally sickly looking to me and meat eaters have better color. I will eat anything actually as long as it was once alive and growing and rots! Stuff that stays good forever is scary!

Jim you need to realize that when countries went into Africa they brought with them greed and opression. Now that many have left as in South Africa our example is what remains. Greed and conflict are alive and well in Africa.
Does that about sum it up Holte?

an average patriot said...

Hi Demeur
You know when you put it that way greed knows no religion has no boundaries and seems to be the norm of all man. Being fair and equal is today a very rare commodity.

Holte Ender said...

Demeur - I think you have a point. The greed and corruption that permeates African politics was well and truly learned from us.
All colonial powers that went into Africa weren't equally greedy, some were just plain asset strippers, others tried to build a little bit of home and infrastructure as well as asset strip. The example that fills objective history books, is one of greed and conflict

Jim,
I didn't know we shared Native blood. My mother was an elder in the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa/Chippewa. I may even be a descendant of Chief Pontiac.

There are no records going back that far to prove it though.

One Fly said...

I have seen the results of the slicing up of West Africa.

The point I want to make is that the white man has not been in East Africa that long compared to the western part of this continent and it's a mess.

The white man mentality pervades every government on this planet to this day.

an average patriot said...

I agree, between us we have left no Muslim land untouched. It kills me since 9/11 we always hear we did nothing wrong. Hell we did nothing right!

That is cool huh? I am from a tribe in northern Maine. My brother has traced our heritage and some day I will run in to him again and get it!
