Most people can’t wait to get a better job that pays them more money. Across the world, no matter where we live, everyone is looking for better opportunities and more money. Some of us would take more money even if we don’t enjoy what we’re doing. Sometimes we don’t want more money because we need it, we want more money because we are greedy. This greed is something that is passed on to us from the people who marginalized us a long time ago. And the more money we have, the more lavish we live for absolutely no reason. Sometimes we live so lavishly, we don’t even take the future of our own kids into consideration. How many celebrities or rich people died penniless, leaving their children in poverty after they earned millions of dollars throughout their careers? Greed also breeds selfishness. Still, we live in a world where capitalism has become the driving force behind our financial demise. Capitalism is nothing but greed, and greed has affected us in the most negative way, going all the way back to when white people discovered Africa was full of resources that they wanted to steal to build their wealth and country. And that included free labor as well. On the surface, greed is sold as nothing more than drive, but how driven must a person be to try to force the rest of the world into poverty, so they can amass all the wealth in the world for themselves? Does it make sense that we have people taking dumps in gold toilets, while other folks are digging through piles of trash for their next meal? We really don’t give a fuck about that, as long as it is not us. We see the guy sitting on the gold toilet as driven, while we look down on the person digging through the trash as lazy. We don’t ever make the correlation between the two. We never hold the guy sitting on the gold toilet responsible for the guy who’s forced to find his next meal through a pile of trash. Africa serves as the best metaphor for the world’s greed and capitalism. The world’s interpretation of “drive” is something that everyone is forced to thrive for. However, not all driven people are good people. Bernie Madoff was very driven, but his drive led to the destruction of many lives that he ruined financially. The Walton family makes billions through their Walmart chains, but their workers have to supplement their income with food stamps. Jeff Bezos overwork his employees and pay them wages that they can’t even live on, but we see nothing wrong with that. He’s even designing new stores that require less human interaction, eliminating more jobs than ever, but we only see his genius. We look at Jeff as a financial guru who became the richest man in America. Slavery in any other name is still slavery. The entire continent of Africa produced free labor for most of the developed countries around the world, and it was driven by greed. Most of the developed countries in the world are exploiting other underdeveloped countries around the world. Another thing, racism is bred from greed and capitalism. In order for white people to justify the maltreatment of black people and others, they use racism to apply stereotypes that have been debunked by logical thinking and proven research. The manipulation of race superiority has forced the world to accept that certain groups of people deserve their position in life. For God’s sake, Kanye is brainwashed enough to believe that Trump is good for America. We can look at that in more than two ways: Kanye first rapped about black men who made it and turning their backs on black women for white girls, but he turned around and decided to allow his art to imitate life by marrying a white girl. Back then, he could rap about that, because he hadn’t made it yet. He married a white girl who sought capitalistic opportunities from any black man with fame, talent or money. He became the fools that he rapped about, and she built a career based on her exploitation of these fools. Has his better financial position in life manipulated his way of thinking? We don’t think too much about that, but Kanye is not alone. There are millions of affluent black people around the world who suddenly don’t see racism because of their money. They see themselves as capitalists, but they also forgot about their many family members who have not climbed the capitalistic ladder. Bill Cosby sure as hell didn’t see racism, and neither did OJ. Bill Cosby even scolded his own people, because of his own capitalistic achievements. Capitalism has a way of controlling our minds to the point where we can become blinded by the reality that’s before us. Back in the day, white people didn’t think black folks were capable of doing many things, because they thought they were superior in so many ways. After thousands of inventions by black people that white people rely on to this day for their own daily survival, some of them are still trying to hold on to some of the stereotypes created by their forefathers to exploit black people because of greed. Capitalism changes everyone, but the origin of it is always greed and control by a particular sector of society. Racism only justifies it all for them. France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and England have been extorting their former African colonies to the tune of over a trillion dollars a year since these countries asked for their independence from them. Yet, these Europeans are quick to get on their bullhorn to announce how poor so many nations in Africa are, while these countries are forced into bankruptcy to pay a lifetime debt that the white imperialists have banded together to force upon them. If any of these countries fail to pay France, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Germany, the imperialists will come together as one unit to destroy them. These despots are in Africa sucking the financial life out of the continent. Also, Haitians can’t seem to get away from the tag “The poorest nation in the western hemisphere,” but the white scoundrels are in Haiti trying to steal the newly discovered oil and gold reserves found in Haiti that can help the country back on its feet without any assistance from America and the other imperialist exploiters. Now, I would refer to this as racism masked by greed, or greed masked by racism, but either way, the privilege that white people have established for themselves through capitalism, make them feel they have the right to the resources of any country around the world. The wars in the Middle east have everything to do with oil, and nothing to do with democracy or human rights violations. White people also feel they have the right to murder any leader around the world at will. You know why? Because capitalism, greed and racism afford them that privilege. When was the last time a US or European president face charges in an international court for the ordered assassination of another leader? Capitalism also yield the kind of power where world leaders get to decide which country can develop nuclear power. It’s another form of racism and control established by capitalism. We can’t blame the white extortionists alone, because the corrupt leaders in Africa, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and the Caribbean play a major role in assisting these imperialists with their greed and racism. Survival of the fittest is also borne out of capitalism. Many third world leaders around the world are forced into corruption, because their power is controlled by the first world leaders. These leaders are used as overseers to enforce the best interest of the super powers. Any president of a third world country who believes his power is absolute, is also a delusional leader. Capitalism is the other cancer of the world, only second to religion.
