Corruption in Europe
Who can criticise European leaders when they are corrupt? Can African leaders dare criticise European leaders of being corrupt?
Whenever there is corruption in Africa that gets uncovered, we hear of the leaders from developed countries standing up in unity to attack black leaders.
When corruption is uncovered in European countries, we hear no black leaders in unity stand up to attack the white leaders.
This tells a lot about the fear inflicted on that the black people by the white society.
The black man, and woman will always want to be respected, but is not in tune with reality that requires him or her to demand it.
The black people dwell in a continued tradition that allows the white people to force themselves into the Black’s territory, and the black people are sitting there waiting to give them unconditional respect, even when the white is not entitled to respect during that particular moment.
Flying African to Africa
Fly to Africa using African airlines, in company of white passengers, and see the way you will get treated if you are a black person.
Those in the cabin are black, but in most cases, they will give special services to a white passenger than the black one, even if the black is travelling first class, while the white one is in the second class , having even paid less for the ticket.
It is not the class you are travelling in, or how much you have paid, but the colour of the skin that determines, and it is really disgusting that such behaviour still has to be allowed to continue this century.
Why is the white equalled to God when in Africa?
In fact we have seen in many occasions, when senior black government ministers, or ambassadors visit a country like Norway, how they are treated disrespectfully.
But when the white ministers and ambassadors are in Africa, they are treated like God, for the simple reason – the skin colour!
Some of the white ambassadors in Africa are quoted often in the media abusing African presidents, acting like they are in Africa to save the African people, and yet they benefit a lot from the black people’s generosity.
And nothing is done about it. APN dreams of a day that an African ambassador in Europe will criticise a white leader for wrong doing.
One thing that is always forgotten is how the white ambassadors live when they are in their own countries.
In most cases, they do not have maids, cooks and gardeners like they afford while in Africa. This is due to costs. To get a cook or gardener in Europe, it would cost them dearly.
Anyone who knows how Europe functions, will agree with APN when it now says that European ambassadors enjoy when in Africa, but when they return to their countries, they sometimes become less entities reduced to travelling by bus and bicycles, while they spend weekends, not bowling like they do when in Africa, but to do laundry and cook their own food.
This is why the Africans must change their attitude towards the white people. The posh lifestyle remains in Africa.
Who is to blame?
The African is to blame. The African is the causer of such discrimination. If the African could treat his, or her fellow African with respect without having to look at his or her status, Africa and its people will go ahead to become prosperous and successful.
And yet, you will find that the white people, when they arrive in an African airport, are given special treatment, and sometimes do not require to stand in a Que like the black person, who will even be told to give way on the line for the white person to be served first.
APN is not being racist here, but pointing out the facts and would like to see the black people treated with respect and not down-graded every-time everywhere during every occasion.
How long will the African allow this to continue?
It is up to the Africans to take the step. And yet it seems they are satisfied with the status quo! APN is not calling for a protest or revolution. APN is saying it is time the African should wake up and not ask for his or her rights but “take it” and move on!
This world will only be peaceful when all people treat one another with respect deserved. The continued harassment of the black people, and lips service from the white population must stop, but we all know that it will not come to an end as long as the blacks themselves are the cause of their own downfall.
Africa and the African – Wake up and do the right thing. Stop licking the white people’s booths, and demand equality as a human being! If you are not listened to, take it in confidence! The 21 century is your century.
