“I’m Not Afraid To Die: Save The World Or Perish In It”-Joel Savage

Malcolm 3

The destroying of our environment, the violence erupting daily in our society, the domestic violence robbing the peace of women, the constant rape of women around the world, the killing of innocent people with biological processed diseases etc, aren’t issues of concern to many people, because they don’t care.

A victim of terrorist attack, tsunami, violence, Aids, Ebola, Zika virus etc, has a story to tell you more than one who hasn’t experienced anything. I am an African, from a continent that has suffered all kinds of aggression, persecution, invasion, looting, diseases, depopulation and biological terrorism, in the hands of Europe and America. How do you expect me to react?

Whatever happens to an African, isn’t an issue of concern to many Europeans and Americans. Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever, Zika virus etc, were laboratory manufactured or man-made diseases by Europe and America and inflicted on Africans and Latin-Americans as bio-weapons. The media has covered up the crime in favour of those responsible for the medical crimes, yet their voices are heard anytime terrorism hits Europe or America.

Genetically modified mosquitoes are spreading Zika virus, yet the media and the American government want people to understand it’s just a normal disease. What kind of a normal mosquito that when it bites, your head shrinks? Why is America causing suffering to others? Why can’t they test the disease they invent on their own people, but they choose the poor and the underprivileged? Is that the true meaning of super-power or democracy? What kind of God America claims in him they trust?

No one cares about Africa, but I do, because that’s where I was born. If the leaders are corrupt and can’t do anything about the using of Africans as Guinea pigs for drugs testing, I will speak out, because I’m not afraid to die. If Africans and Africans in the Diaspora fear to die, then they should by the books about Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King Jr, to read and learn something about them.

If those black leaders: Steve Biko, Kwame Nkrumah, Marcus Garvey, Nelson Mandela etc, were coward and fear to die, African-Americans or black people wouldn’t have reached this far. The reason I’m not afraid to die because I am imitating them. You need to be a sincere, honest or faithful person before you can understand me, but I am not going to beg anyone to understand me, because such qualities are hard to find in people.

Many do ask me if I’m not afraid to speak against people: What a stupid question? It’s because of fear Africans can’t move forward or progress. Many don’t even have the ambition to try something in life to be successful or fail. It’s because of fear the White man leads the Black in everything today, but not because the Black man is stupid.

It’s because of fear Europe and America treat Africa bad. It’s because of fear instead of African leaders to confront Europe and America over those medical crimes, they polish the White man’s shoes to get gifts into their pockets. It’s because of fear, many Africans claim Aids and Ebola are curses from God. It’s because fear an African can’t scream or react if a White man is maltreating him.

It’s because of fear and love of money, many Africans are pastors, yet their deeds don’t show that they are servants of God. It’s because of fear, the statue of Leopold, a king who killed over ten million Africans, including women and children, still stands in Brussels, when there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, yet there is a Black politician in Belgium. What’s his significance?

Fear is an enemy that kills the coward million times before his real death. I want to die just once when my time comes, so I don’t have any room in my life for fear to occupy.

I know the truth hurts, therefore, I don’t expect everyone to like me. Yet still, I will change my life or the tone of my articles because I am Joel Savage.

 

LinkedIn: Thanks For Taking My Career To The Forefront

Like every aspiring and enthusiastic writer, I joined LinkedIn social platform to promote my work worldwide, since LinkedIn is the leading online professional directory of individuals and companies with over 85 million members, in more than 200 countries, including business executives, entrepreneurs and professionals from all walks of life.

As a writer, as well as a strong believer in God, I adhere to certain principles to enjoy my life and career as a Christian. Two things I hate in my life is pride and boasting, I always tried to avoid the two, because the Holy Bible speaks against them. But at times one gets into trouble, because of how some readers view or opinions over certain articles.

My articles have got me into trouble in the past, especially when I was writing for the ‘The Voice News Magazine’ in Amsterdam, and the latest was on LinkedIn’s platform, when I decided to encourage Africans to read, since many hate to read. God and the library are my witnesses. I was attacked on LinkedIn’s social platform, including a black politician in Gent, Belgium, when I wrote an article captioned ‘Why many Africans are ‘allergic’ to reading?’ Nothing of the sort breaks me down, so I continued with my writings, caring less if people read or not.

But in life, out of every misfortune comes something good. LinkedIn’s social platform didn’t only generate personal attacks over my articles, but has also catapulted my writings to fame. On LinkedIn’s platform, I had many paid jobs, but couldn’t fulfill them, because I need some time for my family as a family-man, to take care of my woman and two sons. (My elder son is now married and lives with his wife.)

I joined LinkedIn not quite long, but the number of newspapers that had contacted me to write for them are too numerous to mention. I chose few like Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper, Sprout Africa and AfricanBusiness.com. But this is not the end; more invitations were coming in with promises, including some American news magazines. Unfortunately, as I said earlier, I need more time for my family, so I couldn’t write for them.

Once a well known key figure and one of the directors of LinkedIn’s social platform contacted me to write an article about Google, because the giant search machine is greedily taking away all the commercials online, leaving nothing to other search engines and I wrote the article captioned ‘Is the greed of Google cutting its own throat?’

The latest was just last week. I had a mail from the editor of HBCUconnect.
HBCU CONNECT was founded in 1999, by Hampton University graduate William Roger Moss III, who connected with fellow HBCU grad and entrepreneur E. Shawn Starks to create the first African American targeted social network launched as “hbcu-central.com.”

I was very delighted when He told me that they were going to feature me on HBCU. How did he hear of me? Because he reads my articles. He asked me to register at the website, but all efforts were abortive, because the site is purely for African-American graduates, professionals and students. I never had any education in America, so the system was rejecting my application.

I contacted him over my fruitless attempts. I don’t know what he did, after some time the registration was possible. This was just six days ago and just posted my tenth article. I was overwhelmed with joy when I detected that my articles have generated a lot of interests, depending on the number of clicks they have registered.

In whatever career you are pursuing, you may climb hills and face opposition along the path. Don’t let those barriers and opposition be stumbling blocks along that path. Just concentrate without any distraction and at the end of the dark tunnel, there is a strong beautiful light waiting to shine on your success.
