“Perversion Of African History By Euporeans”
Igbo wiseman will always tell you: Onye chefuru ochie ohuru agaghi akpo ya ihu which roughly translates ‘ one who fails to appreciate the good past will live to experience an awful present. Similarly what Ba’ al Shem Tov emphasized in a more cautioning language “ Without memory there can be no redemption”
It’s heartbreaking when Africans begin to blame witches, sin, and ancestral curses as their woes of life, failing to understand that Africa and its roots had been ransacked and uprooted, and replaced with Western deuces.
We fail to ask: Why Alexander the Great in 332BC conquered Kemet and plundered the first-ever world library? Same Africa meant to believe to be unlearned by the Western manipulated histories!
Why our indigenous African academic maestros sank in their acclaimed knowledge whenever histories of their origin are mentioned?
Haven’t you sat down and ask yourself ‘ Why Western artists dubiously and callously painted God and God’s associaties ( his angels, his believed only son, mother of the only son, even the heavens) in their own color?
You haven’t ruminated reasons behind Negronizing Satan, the most renowned unrepentant enemy of Most High, who appears black through the ages?
If you find the reasons why Western philologists and lexicographers associates black with malefaction and debasement words like black magic, black day, blackmail blackMaria, etc . You can easily know why they introduced Bible and Koran as a dignified ‘HOLY BOOK with HOLY HISTORIES ‘ of how white skinned had shown their love for humanity throughout the ages and how God primly created only the white with exquisite care without mentioning blacks!
If you can’t question why Authentic histories were excluded from African school curricula — teaching only stupid and unconcerned topics like “ the first African man or woman to bla bla bla or first Nigerian bla bla bla…
If you don’t know why autochthonous artifacts are found in Western Museums and galleries, you don’t know why they called their ancestors Saint.
The same reason why African Pastors, Priests, Prayer Warriors, and Imams refused to idolize our ancestors but keep on condemning and praying against Ancestral curses and for patrilineal cleansing . Cleansing what? If I may ask. Cleansing the rape of our ancestors by the pale-faced imperialists, or cleansing the forceful sodomisation of our grand uncles and aunt by this white pigs? Or maybe cleansing the plunder done by Westerners to our economy and culture.
If you can’t find the missing puzzle between the milking of our Commonwealth by African leaders and banking the same money in the Western States, you can’t answer why these so-called saviors will delays the return of these funds till after adequate use of the money for development of their different states.
The above statements and rhetorics as paradoxically as it may sound surmises Common Cause of aetiological unrest tribal war, ethno- social crisis, inferiority to Westerners, and in general Underdevelopment in whole African.
The problems of an African man are not witchcraft and our ancestors, the common problem of Africa is in the extirpation of African History and smugly accepting the Western Cock and Bull.
The Solution Is Sanatio In Raddice, ‘Healing In The Root’ by Teaching Core Histories In Churches, Mosques And Schools!
