The spread of HIV and the resultant AIDS epidemic in Africa was a deliberate and ruthlessly calculated and crafted creation of the former colonial powers of the West, including the U.S.. At a time in the recent history of the African continent, when there was unprecendented economic, political and social prosperity in the newly independent and rapidly progressing nations there, the Western powers found themselves essentially at the mercy of a potentially powerful Pan-African conglomerate which given the fact that they were and indeed still are so dependent upon the natural resources of the continent, this of course was not to be tolerated.
In 1976, right around the time that OPEC had just humiliated the Western powers with their oil embargo, HIV makes its first appearance in Africa. Between 1976-1980 the rate of infection rose astronomically from just 0.7% to well over 40% in those 4 short years. Yet during all the many years of colonialization by the syphilitic and venereal disease infested Europeans, who had regularly raped or had sexual relations with African women, no epidemic of any sexually transmitted disease had ever been reported in Africa. Yet the Western powers would have us believe that suddenly in 4 years, Africans in the most mineral and resource rich nations such as the Congo, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana, all suddenly decided to become so promiscuous that they spread a previously unheard of disease sexually transmitted disease at such an explosive and exponential rate in just 4 years? The fact is this was the calculated and deliberate extermination of a people for economic reasons.
Lord Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament in 2 February, 1835:
“I have traveled across the length and breadth of Africa and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Africans think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.”
Now of course there is some dispute as to whether he said “Africans” or “Indians” but either way it amounts to the same thing; an ingrained ideology that ruthlessly set out to exterminate the heart of a people in order to pillage their natural resources and keep them in a state of dependency upon said pillagers. But once again what I am saying here is nothing new. I only brought this up as a sort of background to what I am going to talk about next over the next week.
My father recently hipped me to the UNESCO project to correct all the many discrepancies and outright falsehoods that are taught about African history. Because Africans were considered to be savages all the archeological and oral records about the many ancient cultures and civilizations which flourished ALL OVER THE AFRICAN CONTINENT and not just Egypt, were discounted and worse. The ancient stone cities in Zimbabwe, for example, so baffled European scientists with a racist agenda, that they came up with some asinine theory that some several thousand years ago, whites must have somehow migrated deep into the southern forests of Africa and established a colony there and they were the ones who built these ancient cities. Forget the fact that there was, is and never will be any such evidence to prove such a bold face lie; it is interesting that the idea of civilized and technologically savvy africans was so abhorrent to these people that they chose to rewrite the entire history of a continent to suit their sad and racist views, with stories so ridiculous that even they knew the deception couldn’t last.
(This is not Egypt)
(Nor is this)
I am going to end this post for now because as I said before everything I have posted about this month (except my sometimes silly more personal posts) has been leading to a dialogue about race from many different angles. Please keeping on reading , I have lot more to come for this month before I come to some sort of conclusion……but for now I am getting a little angry so……..
