I’ve been reading a lot of articles about China’s moves to cement their presence and control across Africa and the Caribbean. While it may be necessary for these under-developed countries in the Caribbean and Africa to reach out to a super power like China for help, because of the history of white imperialism across the globe, it’s also imperative that these black leaders understand that they cannot afford to have an inclusive society with these people. As a matter of fact, there’s no such thing as an inclusive society in any African and Caribbean country. Reason being, these people bring with them their bigotry, prejudice and racism to use against the black natives, and they often create their own society to control the general population, economy and government. In addition, they also bring the danger of creating subgroups through race-mixing, and these people usually believe they are a notch above the black people because of their mixed blood. I’ve traveled enough around the world, and witnessed enough situations to understand the Chinese are following the blueprint of colonialism set in place by white people. We can talk about the development of Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya and many other nations across Africa, where the Chinese are lending a partnering hand, but we must also peel the layers to see at what cost are these Chinese offering help to the African and Caribbean people. It’s too much of a one-sided partnership. No black person should be discriminated against in their own country by fucking foreigners.
Desperate situations sometimes require desperate measures, but African and Caribbean leaders should not be so desperate to invite the Chinese to re-institute a new form of slavery or colonialism on African and Caribbean soil. Our societies cannot be inclusive for many reasons, but the first reason is the fact that Chinese or white people don’t respect African and Caribbean people enough to deal with them as business partners, and they don’t see these black leaders as their colleagues or peers. When you are in need of infrastructure, while you have the resources these other countries need, these people see you as lacking ingenuity and the intelligence to develop your own country and manage your own resources. Africa is not poor, because it provides enough resources to the rest of the world, where everyone knows it’s the richest continent in the world that keeps everybody else’s economy intact. However, black people have had a problem respecting their own talent for so long, they basically neglect to look in their own backyard to develop their own talent. We tend to put Chinese, white, and any other group of people on a pedestal, and we respect their intelligence far more than we do our own.
African and Caribbean leaders have not taken the time to select certain geniuses (bright minds) from their own population to send abroad to be educated in technology, agriculture, economy, business, community development, social development, healthcare, education, and everything else that a society needs, in order to build the infrastructure needed to keep Africans and Caribbean people at home. The most ingenious Africans and Caribbean people outside of Africa and the Caribbean, have all assimilated to the place where they migrated to on their own. Nobody’s going back to Africa and the Caribbean to teach their knowledge to other African and Caribbean people. These black governments are not giving incentives to the Black people in the diaspora to return home. When you rely on foreigners so much, you have no choice but to become a puppet to their rules and regulations.
When the Chinese or white men come to your country to help you, it’s automatically assumed that you are beneath them, and they are there to control your people and the projects they are running. We should be very mindful of their intent, and the reasons why they are offering help to African and Caribbean countries to begin with. There’s always more for them to gain. Get that “goodwill” bullshit out of your minds. These people don’t give a fuck about Africa or the Caribbean. The narrative for most African and Caribbean nations is always poverty. When somebody thinks your poor in spirits and finances, they’re more likely to think less of you, and they’re more likely to treat you like a beggar, instead of a colleague. These African and Caribbean leaders don’t understand that their resources are needed, and these people are coming to them, because they are easily bought. There isn’t enough patriotic leaders across Africa and the Caribbean who put the needs of their people and country first. These leaders often think about fattening their own pockets, and whatever crumbs that’s left after squandering the resources of the country, go to the people, which continues an endless cycle of poverty, and control by outsiders over their people. In addition, when you allow these people to stay in your country, they can assassinate your character as a leader at will, and create a civil war where your own people are gonna want to revolt against you.
I’m in no way advocating that African and Caribbean leaders should not deal with the Europeans, Americans, and Chinese when it comes to infrastructure and development of their countries. However, they should put in place their own young minds from their own society, to learn the ropes from these foreigners on an apprentice basis, so that these African and Caribbean countries can eventually rely less on the ingenuity of foreigners to help build their own land, and more on their nation’s brightest minds, which can create a better cycle of independence and the passing down of knowledge and education.
I’m completely against allowing the Chinese or white people to remain in any African or Caribbean nations after they complete their task of helping to build infrastructure. These people should be kicked out, and their contract should outline the fact that they are there to perform a duty, and teach young African and Caribbean engineers, doctors, economists, agronomists, IT people and other professionals the ropes, so they can take over after their contract is over. Too many outsiders or foreigners are dominating or running African and Caribbean societies. These people usually band together to maintain control of the economy, while putting a stronghold on the people and their efforts to come out of their dire situations. They’re always cohorts!
As black people, we must do better, and we must study the nature of all those people who come to us under the false pretense of helping. There’s no value in trading, if a foreigner can come into your country to steal and control your resources. Black leaders must also let go of their personal greed and selfishness, in order for any black nation to thrive. All black leaders around the world must be held accountable for their actions. Corrupt leaders should not be able to rob the coffers of their country during their tenure in office without any consequences. This behavior is rampant across Africa and the Caribbean, because the African and Caribbean people have not held these people accountable for their actions. While these African and Caribbean leaders are stealing money to hide in a Swiss account, giving the Swiss access to more money to develop their own society, the African and Caribbean people are suffering. When someone steals millions of dollars from their own government and place that money in a foreign bank, they are giving that foreign country access to more money to lend to their people, and to develop their country further. In addition, a lot of these thieving assholes are also purchasing homes overseas. Whose economy are they boosting? A lot of African and Caribbean thieves posing as leaders are imbeciles. They’re not even intelligent enough to understand that white and Chinese people are hip to their game and their greed. They are easily bought and sold, but too often the people they govern suffer the consequences. In addition, they all want to be president for life. That shit needs to stop!
