who's your daddy?
I was watching NBC news this morning, and could hardly believe my eyes! I was very bitter and enraged.
We (Africans) suffered the ravages of foreign ideologies in the form of christian crusades and islamic jihads, slavery (of our own people in foreign lands), exploitation in the hands of greedy colonialists, and now rejection by the very same foreign puppetiers who still control our destiny today. Race (which coincidentally is a biological myth, but a societal reality) and racism have tied dark skin to the lowest tier of most societies. We are still scraping the bottom of the barrel of humanity. Collectively, in the eyes of Others, ALL dark-skinned people are the same!
We keep squabbling like little children over petty shit like tribalism. I can just hear Them mocking away: "Look at these fuckin' African savages.... !" The Europeans figured out early enough that They didn't have to exterminate Us: "Those Africans are sooo dumb they'll effectively do the dirty work themselves. Bwahahaha!!" We willingly destroy ourselves through war & diseases- and don't know any better because we are too busy kissing ass, and trying to be Them. It is trully disgusting that we've bought into the myth ... resigned ourselves to believing the propaganda that We, the fauna of Africa, are nothing! We (Africans) are like dogs, sitting obediently on our haunches by the table hoping for little crumbs. Nothing more that bitches, running around with our tails between our legs, after being fucked in the ass by our bestial 'Massa', ! Arrgghhhh! I'm sick of this shit!
What happened to our pride, eh? Have we no shame? How can we allow these atrocities to happen? Why do we continue to debate about who is to blame for our problems instead of taking the helm into our own hands? How much more of this crap are we going to put up with? How long is this humiliation going to go on?
Brethren, wake the fuck up!!! It's time we realized that we (Africans) are on our own- no one gives a damn about us! Fuck the lip-service paid by these imperialistic bastards ! I say that we (Kenyans) need to take fate into our own hands and control our own destiny. For chrissakes, We need to stop complaining and do SOMETHING about it!
We need to embrace a true sense of pride in ourselves, and shake off all the negative actions, attitudes, and stereotypes directed towards dark-skinned people. All dark people need to unite and map our own destiny. In Kenya, we need to create sustainable projects that can rejuvenate our economy and inprove the standards of living of our peoples. We have:
- the manpower (unemployment rate hoovers about 40%, and we have a labor force of about 11.4m 2004 est),
- literacy rate is about 85%, and
- the current govt. has undertaken certain reforms that have began to show encouraging results.
The groundwork is in place to plant seeds of (re)development of our homeland.
Pass the word around: This is an open call to Kenyan (and African) diaspora abroad to join me in planning a development strategy for our motherland. I would like to convene a panel of experts and potential investors that will get together to create sources of affordable capital, technology inputs, and infrastructure, etc. Ideally it shall be a private network of individuals who will raise venture capital, and coordinate investment activities that would stimulate the Kenyan (and African) economy into a globally competitive market like China or India.
I've put myself on the block for this project- but I can't do it on my own, do you feel me? I want to gauge how many people are of the same mind
