Xenophobia in Africa the work of Colonizers

xenophobia

Xenophobia in Africa is the work of colonizers and is designed to keep Africans dumb, violent, and dysfunctional.

We don’t like to spread conspiracies but some situations bear too much evidence of external coercion to escape controversy. When we see how some South Africans are violently trying to expel Nigerians from their country and vice-versa, we know that there is colonial influence behind it.

The colonizers know that most Africans are in too much social and financial despair to be able to see the big picture and will destroy themselves before they realize what happened. The colonizers already have Religious control so with the use of tribal violence, they know that soon they will return to take back political and economic control of Africa. 

Africa is a continent that has been mired in violence and social despair for centuries; some say since the arrival of Arab and European colonizers. In the last half century however, ever since the colonizers have loosened their political grip, allowing Africans to dictate their own political affairs, life had begun to improve.

Some African leaders have even developed the audacious confidence to wrestle economic power away from the colonizers. The one part of covert colonial influence in Africa that is definitely not a conspiracy is the fact that the colonizers have always regretted giving up political power in Africa.

The colonizers hated how Robert Mugabe (RIP) liberated Zimbabwe so they successfully used economic sabotage to ensure Mugabe’s influence didn’t spread throughout Africa. Instead of falling apart however, most African countries thrived and developed successful economies. 

With the emergence of numerous Millionaires and Billionaires the colonizers know that the more economically self-sufficient Africans get, it’s the more they themselves will lose access to Africa’s enormous untapped natural resource wealth. So, how are colonizers working to thwart the rise of Africa?

In the midst of all the confusion and daily reports of xenophobic violence there is a sinister campaign going on to accelerate the violence. Hidden hands are spreading false reports of xenophobic murders that either didn’t take place or are events that happened long ago.

One video even showed students in India jumping from a burning building as an event involving Nigerians. The Nigerians have predictively retaliated by attacking South African nationals living in Nigeria. Some Nigerians have now called on their home-grown Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram to kill all South Africans and they have agreed.

Our vision is not blurry. we can see the colonizers rejoicing now that the bonfire of xenophobic violence is spreading to include other African countries. All they have to do now is wait for Africans to call for help from the international community.

The colonizers will then send in UN peacekeepers and eventually the World Bank to seize financial control of more African countries. The development of Africa will regress by 50 years and Africans will return to 100% dependent state.

Never Forget the Rwanda Genocide

rwanda genocide

Never forget the Rwanda genocide because not only is it a valuable conscience building lesson for all Afrakans, if we ignore and forget it, we are bound to repeat it in our various countries and cultures.

April, 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the worst genocide in modern Afrakan history, which resulted in the deaths of nearly one million Tutsi Rwandans at the hands of their fellow Hutu neighbors. It is of utmost importance to all Black and Afrakan people to never forget an event of such magnitude because if we do, we will never learn to become more conscientious people, its accounting will be altered, denied and forgotten, and because of those circumstances, we will undoubtedly repeat it over and over.

As westerners of Afrakan descent, we may never be able to understand the tribal nature of our genetic homeland and many Afrakans may even be quick to point that out if we dare to project any sort of moral superiority over the many and various cultures on the Afrakan continent. Therefore, we can only seek commonality with Afrakans through the fact that we are all human beings who want the same things in life, which are; mutual respect among men and freedom to live according to the historical ideologies that provide comfort and purpose to life.

With that said, it is well documented that the Rwandan genocide is the result of extreme tribalism between the prominent tribes of the region, the Hutu and the Tutsi. We recognize that the conflict began out of a lack of tribal respect on both sides. Some say it is due to deep colonial brainwashing that saw centuries of divide and conquer tactics at the hands of European powers. Some say no, its jealousy over physical features and Hutus believing that the Tutsi are East Afrakan invaders who don’t belong in the region.

Whatever the reason was, it was obvious that the level of conscience among the people had sunk to extremely low levels and when conscience is suppressed ideology will rise to take over the mind of anyone, including preachers. Before the killing frenzy began, years of animosity had slowly turned into racial hatred. Hutu politicians, Pastors, and their supporters were openly using hatred to spread propaganda until the general public was willing to kill without remorse.

Over approximately 100 days it is estimated that close to one million Tutsi were massacred throughout Rwanda. Gangs of Hutu soldiers, and civilians roamed the streets killing Tutsi men, women, and children wherever they found them hiding. No sanctuary was safe as they kicked down the doors of homes, schools, and churches to hack people to death with machetes. United Nations peacekeepers, who were stationed in the country due to prior tribal conflicts, did there best to save as many people as they could in the beginning but their calls for further help were ignored. It clearly reveals the hypocrisy of some so called morally responsible world powers.

25 years after the Rwandan genocide, it has been largely forgotten in the Western world because most of our leaders never gave a damn in the first place. When it is brought up in terms of accountability, most Hutu are remorseful but a small number of them remain defiant and are actively working to change the narrative. Like the German holocaust deniers, they spread misinformation claiming that only a few hundred Tutsi were killed or it was the Tutsi who orchestrated the whole thing, sacrificing their own tribes’ people to gain sympathy from the international community.

At Afro-Conscious Media (ACM), we do not subscribe to conspiracies. We were alive and followed the news when the genocide was happening and we’ve heard neutral 3rd party accounting from people such as Roméo Dallaire, commander of the UN forces who was on the ground in Rwanda during the genocide.

Most Tutsi survivors of the genocide express that they are still being haunted by the trauma of the event. Some say they have forgiven the Hutu in order to try to forget and move on while others have simply done their best to forget by building happy memories to suppress the bad ones.

This is the way the human mind works; we compartmentalize trauma in order to protect our sanity but while it is comforting, there is a danger in forgetting because over time those same petty differences, be they tribal or racial, will inevitably return if they are not dealt with properly and commemorated in a conscientious way.

ACM will always commemorate the Rwandan genocide, not to rehash the trauma of the event but to encourage conscious thought as to what will happen when we as Black and Afrakan people continue to engage in colorism, tribalism, and racism.

South Sudan Needs Your Help

There is a crisis of epic preportions unfolding in South Sudan. The Afrakan country is being ravaged by war, famine, and disease causing thousands of deaths on a daily basis. The suffering, especially to innocent women and children, is extremely severe but we know that no situation is ever helpless. Each and every one of us can make a difference in saving lives. The time to act is now because South Sudan needs your help.

South Sudan is the world’s newest country. It gained its independence from Sudan less than 10 years ago after many years of civil war. However, shortly after becoming a full-fledged republic, the country itself fell into turmoil over tribal conflicts and political and ideological differences between the ruling tribes.

While it may be understandable that every nation experiences internal strife, what makes the situation in South Sudan worse is the unending Drought affecting the entire region. As people watch their crops, animals, and children die of starvation, fighting between government troops and rebel forces is also driving them into UN refugee camps in the millions.

The UN has been trying to broker a cease-fire between government forces and rebel fighters with little effect. At the same time, numerous Aid agencies are on the ground in several areas providing medical aid to the sick and dieing as well as handing out food and water to the starving.

Many people have never heard of the situation in South Sudan. Those who have, fall into several groups. Some people help by donating to charities, some people turn a blind eye thinking that it’s the job of the UN, and some simply don’t care. Forget about the people who don’t care because we know that a great many people care but either lack the resources to help or don’t know how.

If you care about the lives of your fellow Afrakans then there is a way that everyone that cares can help. This very simple method involves the spreading of information. Ever heard the saying…?

Out of sight, out of mind

This is a True and Wise statement. When some people hear about the situation in South Sudan and feel helpless to do anything they simply put it out of their minds. When information is present on the Mind people have no choice but to think about it. When it’s information that affects the Conscience it generates Empathy and people begin to care.

Your task therefore is to spread information. Spread the word to everyone you know in person and on social media. Get daily updates from news sources or do a search on Google Alerts for “South Sudan”. Post the information on your Twitter and Facebook accounts and encourage your family and friends to spread it too.

In time so much information about South Sudan will be in front of people’s eyes that they will have no choice but to think about it. The information will begin to dig into their conscience creating an involuntary response of wanting to help. In time the fighting factions in South Sudan will notice the world looking at them and become self-conscious about their unethical war.

The UN will notice that citizens in their respective countries are holding their political actions in account. They will send in more peacekeepers and other support resources. Aid organizations will notice that a lot more of their donors are watching their actions and allocate more of their resources to the region.

South Sudan needs your help. Start the information spreading campaign today.
