With the enormous mineral resources we Africans are blessed with, with the able bodied men or human resources at our disposal, the African land is one of the fertile if not the most fertile in the whole world, but why the African man wallow in poverty?
Are we supposed to blame the white men who are here to expand their capitalist economy and exploit Africans for the benefit of their own economy or the African leaders whom out of inferiority complex and corrupt minds who can’t stop running errands for the white guys that controls the world? I think the blame should be given to the latter, because they have the powers to give the white capitalists conditions to operate on African soil.
Why Do Black Men Hide Under God’s Name To Carry Out Evil?
Why do we blacks living in the black continent subscribes to idea of God but still practice evil? Most of we all claim to be worshipping God and being guided by the good God but have hands in most of the things that have taken place in our various countries which had partly contributed to the backwardness of the African continent. Isn’t it a blasphemy to steal public funds meant for the welfare of the citizens and take some of it to the so called house of God and ask those pastors and imams whom we cannot prove whether they were ever called by God or they called themselves to the work so that they can pray on their behalf for God’s blessings.
This is just an irony, in as much as you can’t clean yourself up with your urine you can’t as well bribe God we stolen money, because “He who comes into equity must come with clean hands.”
Why Do We Love Outsiders More Than Insider?
Does the the attitudes of loving outsiders?more depict inferiority complex among most Africans before people they barely know or those who are different from them culturally or maybe an absolute display of jealousy of people they know very well.
This problem common among we Africans, that is why we love the white men more than ours fellow black men. This is the reason why most Africans today prefers foreign products to locally made products even if the white men products are of inferior quality. The taste for foreign goods have made most if not all African countries a dumping ground for inferior goods from all over the white men’s world.
Why do we keep blaming others but finds it very difficult to look inwards. We keep reading books, journals and magazines that says Africans were underdeveloped by the white men without looking at contrary writings that explains why our backwardness is partly our fault.
Why have we all failed to find solutions to our underdevelopment, why can’t we tell our leaders to their faces to live up to their responsibilities and invest in this great continent.
Can we ever stop raining praises on the corrupt leaders simply because we are from the same region or because we of the same ethnic group or religious group?
Looking at our beautiful culture which is known for its uniqueness all over the world, one will see that is seriously phasing out as a result of negligence and we also feel that our cultural practices are evil and no longer trending.
Politically we have abandoned our traditional political systems which were majorly centralized or decentralized system of government, structured by the the true Africans which were very effective in governing Africans in their various societies.
The African traditional democratic system was better than the modern democracy that could not carry every body along in a multiqethnic countries like Nigeria.
So many things were displaced and replaced in Africa under the noses of our leaders and nothing was done.
Will pointing fingers or wishful thinking get things back to the right track for Africans?
