where you find illiterate Africans struggling to construct English sentences when conversing. It’s
only a few white people who bother themselves about speaking to Black people using Africanlanguages.
It’s so amasing that wh
don’t want to be associated with Afrikanness,
while Africans are deeply rooted in the traits of the western world. This disgrace was conceivedby the inferiority complex that slavery and colonisation instilled on the African race. The factthat the white man presented himself as an architect of the whole human civilisation the restof the world was obliged to boot lick the western ways. However this faked superiority wasfounded on capitalism, barbarism and historical myths promoting racial prejudice. This issubstantiated by the history of Europe which alludes to wars of conquests by power hungryvultures like Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler and many more European heroes of violence. This cultureof violence was later inflicted on Africans by the Europeans who captured gold out of Africa.Notable among these were the Portuguese traders who attracted the coming in of otherwestern capitalist merchants. The next sweeping tide being slavery, then what could theAfricans do? . They had to receive their plight in the hands of these pig skinned, mercilessGoliaths. Hence in chains they were bond to captivity, this is where the story of culturaldilapidation began.
They may say Black is evil, but the bibl
e ‘’the pure book’’
is under thecaptivity of the Black ink. The same colour that they associate with evilsuperstitions.
Psychological denigration of Africans was another process used by the slave master to defeatthis gullible people. Thus the same clergy who had come bearing the banner of Christianitywhich inscribed the morals to govern mankind
’s virtue was the same villain
who blessed theslave batches that sailed to the west. In such circumstances the African began to regard thisplight as natural as it was sanctified and ordained by a member of the self-
that also claimed to have known the true GOD. Now the Africans having been brandedas
as said to be symbolized by their
skin, humblyaccepted slavery to serve their God given masters who bore the gospel. After this successfulmental imprisonment, the African thought that Blackness was the ugliest thing ever; henceanything to do with Blackness had to be avoided by any means necessary. That meant bleachingtheir skin colour, using the western languages for communication. The lost sons and daughters
of Africa cursed their Blackness, simple because they were told ‘’Black is cursed and evil’’
