“No matter what its name or provenance, it is believed that the arrival of Europeans on Hispaniola unleashed fukú on the world, and we’ve all been in the shit ever since.” —Junot Díaz, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
*fukú means curse*, don’t worry I had no idea what it meant either!
So, what inspired this post? I watched a documentary about slum dwelling, povo stricken White South Africans. The crux of the video ponders the fall from grace of the White invaders after systemic racism against the REAL Africans was legally extirpated. The heresy of NOT EXERCISING RACISM on the native population! What is the world coming to?… Is this some kind of equality joke?
Look, I know I appear a tad cold if not downright liquid nitrogen-esque in my assessment of Westerners but you know what? I do feel sympathy for those who are experiencing the vicissitudes of life, including White people who are struggling.
I do own a pulse and with it, an alcove of very human emotions behind the political poker face I give to the world. I put myself in the shoes of the disadvantaged and think how would I feel if I was subjected to the same hindrances?
That being said, I also know history.
You must understand that my distain towards the Western mind lies not with skin colour, nor with the individual. It’s what the monolithic representation means when White Western people assume power, that results in my vexation towards them. They literally exercise no clemency towards their fellow human beings when power rests in their paws. Infact, they justify the subjugation via science, philosophy and religion.
It is indeed a lofty stance to only assess the dire circumstances of a person when they have fallen, but feign amnesia to the lashings and lynchings they besieged upon you and your kin when they held the whip in one hand, and the digits to your bank account in the other. I personally can’t dispense kindness and aid to people WHO ONCE DESIRED NOTHING MORE FOR ME and my brethren, than to watch our innocence, joy and hope dissipate to assuage their own ego, that they do indeed belong at the apex.
It’s not forgiving White people that is the problem, it’s not allowing my ancestors and a part of myself to perish in vain which matters more.
Same blood, different spillage
Why does this arouse more empathy in you….
I’ll tell you why. White people denote “humanity” whereas coloured people represent in your mind, a “group” or “kind of” people, but not HUMANITY per se.
I know you think I just wrote some messed up shit here, but no, I clarified what everyone subconsciously THINKS!
If you doubt the veracity of my claim, just look at the disparity in press coverage of terrorist attacks in France as opposed to ones in Iraq.
In the Paris 2015 terrorist attack, 130 people died. The same year in Iraq?
Just look at the numbers for yourself, 130 vs a head shaking, jaw dropping 6973! The 130 drew massive social media attention, with the fake heart breakers on FB and Twitter spitting out clout enhancing condolences to a bunch of snail eaters (oooh did I really say that? Sorry, escargot it is!) yet no “sorry for your losses” to Iraqis who were the real victims. Iraqis were concomitantly victims of terrorism, and being pawns of the dastardly American Empire in its relentless pursuit of global domination.
Australia immediately tried to open its doors to WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS when a few home made videos of White farmers made the social media circuit about an apparent “genocide”……49 White people getting murdered constitutes a genocide. However, 2000 coloured people evicted from Diego Garcia (their home) in the Chagos archipelago by the British to secure land for an American military base DESERVES ALMOST ZERO mainstream media coverage and equally as much condemnation! How quaint!
“Murders of white farmers make up a small fraction of the total in South Africa, which has the world’s fifth highest murder rate. In the 2019/20 financial year there were 21,325 murders across the country, of which 49 were white farmers, according to police statistics. Reuters
No news headlines were made when this was said by the Poms… ostensibly if you say shit like this against coloured folk, IT AIN’T GENOCIDAL AT ALL!
“During the 1960s, the UK and US
governments conspired to get rid of Diego Garcia’s population. Gore-Booth, under-secretary at the British foreign office, wrote: “There will be no indigenous population except seagulls.” Down to Earth
Removing the Chagossians was not the only atrocity committed on Diego Garcia…..this is what the “animal loving” Yanks did to the dogs, a pet rarely seen without their human companion.
“At first they tried poisoned fish balls,’ said Lizette. ‘That killed a few and left many in terrible agony. Then they paid a man to walk around with a big stick, beating them to death, or trying to.’ ‘What year was this?’ ‘Spring 1971. It was very hot. American soldiers had already begun to arrive to build the base. They backed several of their big vehicles against the brick shed where the coconuts were prepared; hundreds of dogs had been rounded up and imprisoned there.
Then they gassed them through a tube from the truck’s exhaust. You could hear them crying.’ The bodies of the dogs, many still alive, were thrown on to a shelf that usually held the flesh of coconuts as it was cooked above husks burning below. This was their pyre. Children listened to the howls of their pets being burned to death and watched a few trying to escape on to the beach, and being driven back into the flames by whippers-in. It took more than a ton of husks to complete the slaughter.” Freedom Next Time, by John Pilger.
This is what makes me loathe Westerners the most, the fact that they take away the most simple of joys which give arduous circumstances a sliver of respite.
The sound of children crying, the haphazard culling of innocent life and the initiation to an existence of acute emotional anguish, does not even penetrate the mind of the Western Empire for a nanosecond…..the pain we feel as coloured people, becomes the most potent elixir of joy for White people. This is not even hyperbole, White people genuinely derive satisfaction in seeing us suffer, then coming over to ask us what’s wrong before taking away our children to indoctrinate a system of self hate. Must feel good to play the role of the white hero while conveniently leaving out the fact that our calamities are the result of THEIR GREED.
You STILL think I’m cherry picking?
There is nothing apropaic enough to stop White people from taking what doesn’t belong to them. No level of avarice signals enough, and EVERYTHING is atoned for if it affords a smile on the deity of profit. No act is ever egregious enough that White people won’t commit, because conscience is a relic emotion that has no place in the empire, nor on Wallstreet.
Which culture has a White imprint that isn’t wholly or partially destroyed? Please NAME JUST ONE! *The following is a speech by Tecumseh a great Shawnee Chief, Native American.
Brothers.—When the white men first set foot on our grounds, they were hungry; they had no place on which to spread their blankets, or to kindle their fires. They were feeble; they could do nothing for themselves. Our fathers commiserated their distress, and shared freely with them whatever the Great Spirit had given his red children. They gave them food when hungry, medicine when sick, spread skins for them to sleep on, and gave them grounds, that they might hunt and raise corn.
Brothers, the white people are like poisonous serpents: when chilled, they are feeble and harmless; but invigorate them with warmth, and they sting their benefactors to death. The white people came among us feeble; and now we have made them strong, they wish to kill us, or drive us back, as they would wolves and panthers.
Brothers.—The white men are not friends to the Indians: at first, they only asked for land sufficient for a wigwam; now, nothing will satisfy them but the whole of our hunting grounds, from the rising to the setting sun.
Brothers.—The white men want more than our hunting grounds; they wish to kill our warriors; they would even kill our old men, women, and little ones.” Great Speeches by Native Americans, by Bob Blaisdell.
You may choose to help them when you see them in dire straits, or forgive them for the harm they once inflicted upon you, thinking that magnanimity exercised on your part, will wrought out the better angels of their nature. You DAMN FOOL! As soon as they get a keg up on you, they will ensure that your gesture of clemency was nothing more than gullibility. The White soul suffers from “omphalos syndrome,” a condition rendering the belief that the world revolves around them.
When we choose the path of forgiveness in the eyes of the West, it evinces their belief in their INNATE SUPERIORITY. Why? Because IRRESPECTIVE of how they treat us, they receive ZERO CONSEQUENCES. Think about it, who else has the power to supersede judgement and suspend the laws of nature? God almighty!
But surely you can’t compare White people today to their predecessors! *cough* BULLSHIT!
On the question of the world’s second juggernaut, China….ever wondered why the West is out to draw blood? It’s because they have NEVER THOUGHT OF THE CHINESE AS HUMAN BEINGS and now that they are successful? Well, how bloody dare they!
Rewind time back to when the British were committing simultaneous economic evisceration on China and India, the topic du jour was which act of moral indecency deserves higher priority: butt fuckin’ India by curtailing opium sales or maiming the Chinese through drug addiction leading to a life of debauchery…… difficult decisions indeed, considering NONE of these concerns would benefit India or China. This was purely a conundrum of the bath resistant ones who didn’t want to be associated with blood money, but WANTED THE DAMN COINS!
The British public had a tad more conscience than the government, and anti opium sentiments soon abounded, so what happened? A Royal Commission was established, and it travelled 20,000 miles, asked 28,000 questions and even published a 2000 page report on the “possible effects” of opium.
According to Samuel Merwin author of Drugging a Nation, The Story of China and the Opium Curse, the Royal Commission derived this conclusion – opium is both harmless and harmful depending on usage. Apparently smuggling drugs into China does not mean that this ILLEGAL PRACTICE is associated with harm…..it depends on how you use it (said with an imperturbable, stiff upper lip in the event of committing yet ANOTHER CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY).
The Commission then continued its journey (because psychopathy knows no bounds) and asked Japan, Transvaal (South Africa), America, Australia and the Philippines about the ramifications of smuggling opium into THEIR COUNTRIES? All the countries and provinces interviewed said “Hell no! We don’t want that shit here!”. Britain’s ugly twin America said the following SPECIFICALLY, all the while the Delano’s (Roosevelt’s family lineage) were making money hand over fist in their China drug trade! The Americans were second only to the British in robbing and drugging China into a narcotic hell. Western hypocrisy at its DAMN FINEST!
“The attitude of the United States is thus described by the Philippine Commission: “It is not perhaps generally known that in the only instance where America has made official utterances relative to the use of opium in the East, she has spoken with no uncertain voice. By treaty with China in 1880, and again in 1903, no American bottoms are allowed to carry opium in Chinese waters. This … is due to a recognition that the use of opium is an evil for which no financial gain can compensate, and which America will not allow her citizens to encourage even passively.” Drugging a Nation The Story of China and the Opium Curse, by Samuel Merwin
What about the Children? This question got tussled around by the Brits who had a visceral reaction of a white baby piping up a bong, yet felt no discomfort AT ALL about a Chinese baby living the “high” life….
“What would these British mothers say? It is a fair question. The “conservative” pro-opiumist is always ready with an answer to this question. He claims that it is not fair. He maintains that the Oriental is different from the Occidental—racially. Opium, he says, has no such marked effect on the Chinaman as it has on the Englishman, no such marked effect on the Chinese infant as it has on the British infant. I have met this “conservative” pro-opiumist many times on coasting and river steamers and in treaty port hotels. I have been one of a group about a rusty little stove in a German-kept hostelry where this question was thrashed out. Your “conservative” is so cock-sure about it that he grows, in the heat of his argument, almost triumphant. At first I thought that perhaps he might be partially right. One man’s meat is occasionally another man’s poison……………. The Chinese differ from us in so many ways that possibly they might have a greater capacity to withstand the ravages of opium.” Drugging a Nation The Story of China and the Opium Curse, by Samuel Merwin.
Can people change? Yes and No. The victim suffers a seismic shift in their core, while the assailant just tells the victim to “GET OVER IT”.
The irony being that White people are the FIRST to cry foul play at the slightest bit of mistreatment against them, which makes my loathing of them more intense. 49 dead White farmers is enough of a body count to qualify as a genocide, yet in my home Australia with the Black Wars, stealing children and the raping of young Aboriginal girls ALL registering as a CIVILIZATION MISSION!
China leads the way to self determination, dignity and hope.
I have been a strong proponent of naming, shaming and suing if possible, all the people who have been bona fide assholes to you. I’ve said this before and I’ll keep it on loop – YOU OWE IT TO YOUR OWN SELF-ESTEEM TO PUT DOWN THE PERK, IN YOUR JERK!
It’s not up to ANOTHER person to wield your blade, and you certainly don’t milquetoast your way out of fighting for yourself by claiming superior morals. Just call people out on their BS and turn the onus on the accuser to provide proof of their damning accusations instead of taking the high road!
When I saw the above video of Adrien Zenz getting his comeuppance, I leaped for joy. Finally China named this unscrupulous, fugly Nazi!
Now, let’s all take a leaf outta China 2.0’s book of asskickin’ and do our sanity a favour……
EXACT REVENGE ON OUR AGGRESSORS BEFORE WE START TALKING PEACE!
An eye for an eye. Only the VICTIM gets to decide the degree of retribution, NOT THE AGGRESSOR!
Until the score is settled, there is no such thing as equality. WHITE PEOPLE HAVE LITERALLY GOTTEN AWAY WITH MURDER!
