Seeing The Real Africa
For some reason the above link was listed as relevant to my post Nixing The Ugly American. I have apparently been targeted by this Blackinformant.com site as often three out of four relevant posts are from the site. That means that any possible referrals are subsumed into this African waste basket pretty effectively limiting my reach. That it is attached to Nixing, a post definitely not related to Africans would seem to indicate I am being monitored by ‘Africa’ and censorship by Africans is at least being attempted or thought desirable.
The above linked article indicates that Africans do not believe they are accurately represented in the US media. Bobby Mugabe having been given virtually a free ride with an unlimited pass seems to contradict the notion but, um, well…the Liberal media is indeed biased.
The writer wants Africa’s high rise buildings and five star hotels shown more than they are. The only problem there is that they were built by money sucked out of the Euroamerican taxpayer, And built by EuroAmerican architects, engineers and techniques. The only Africans involved were the hodcarriers. I watch little TV and yet from that little I have seen Ghana’s high rise buildings, five miles of quality highway and magnificent tarmac. All EA built with EA money. I’ve also seen the mega square miles of squalid slums without sewage where people wade through piles of garbage and …whatever. No toilet facilities I could see either. African built with African…money?
But, the writer continues: I have seen slums and squalor in Nigerian cities of Dopemu and Calabar but I have also seen slums and squalor in American cities of Detroit and Chicago.
Why, of course you have. We live in a global society, Sir, and America is one of the few truly global areas of the world; hence we have many large African colonies and you named two of them: Detroit and Chicago. Dopemu and Calabar, two other African cities, look just like Detroit and Chicago. That’s because customs don’t change when a people shifts around the globe. Their habits remain the same. As Dopemu, so Detroit. Can you understand that, Sir?
Also, Sir, perhaps you should note this. Can you point out one of the dozens of African countries that has a White president? No, sir, you cannot. And yet single America has an African president. By African I do not mean merely Black, I mean a man born in Africa, an actual citizen of Kenya. True. Your man Obama is the son of an unmarried White woman and an African prince who was born in Nairobi. He is not even legally qualified to be the President of the United States yet there he sits.
The real Africa? Blow it out your nose and may an elephant caress you with with its toes. Leave the planet; you’ve overstayed your welcome.
