“Enlighten the people, generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day.”

Thomas Jefferson



It is even better to chastise ourselves before others do so. Why must we Africans always want the West to spoon-feed us and even change our diapers and then some of us will be screaming their heads off about racism.

Everybody as a chance to make a choice.America and Europe don't force us to buy their arms. So, we can be wiser now than ever before and use whatever Aid they give us to really help the poor majority in Africa. But, I believe that charity begins at home. So, let Africans help themselves before going to harass the G-8 for alms in exchange for arms? Are we so backward and shameless that we want to continue crawling at the feet of America and the rest of the developed nations, like dogs begging for crumbs of their left-overs? Look at my country Nigeria for instance. Nigeria was better when she was still a British colony than now. Now, Nigeria is very dirty, filthy and corrupt and I cannot continue to tolerate the whole rubbish making me sick everyday by day. Come and see our public schools and public hospitals and you will weep for this so called giant of Africa that is so blessed and yet the majority of the over 150 million Nigerians live below the poverty line? Millions of Nigerians live in misery and penury! It is a shame.

Africans are among the dirtiest people on earth and they only clean up to impress the white folks. I can tell the difference, because I live in an estate managed by the Dutch and it so clean, beautiful and peaceful that we are praying that the Dutch should never leave it in the hands of Blacks. Because, they will mess it up with filth, corruption, greediness and their religious hypocrisies.

Look at Robert Mugabe who has turned the State House of Zimbabwe into his African Shrine and does not want to vacate the place until he dies? The only true leaders we have in Africa are Papa Nelson Mandela and em...em...You see, I cannot even find any more to boast of!

May God help us to help ourselves, so that we don't have to go cap in hand to beg America, Britain and the other members of the G-8 for debt relief and debt cancellation and more donations, as if we are paupers. And we are so blessed with so much mineral resources and human resources, but our greediness, wickedness, nepotism, tribalism and corrupt oligarchies are destroying our beloved continent. I wonder why Africa is so blessed and yet majority of Africans are so wretched? Why can't we vote out all these corrupt rulers like Robert Mugabe, Olusegun Obasanjo and the rest of the horrible and terrible leaders wrecking our continent?

Let us speak the truth on every issue, regardless of race, colour or greed. And no matter whose ox is gored.

May God help us all?
