“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.

 

What Is The Significance Of An African Politician In Belgium?

 

I don't think any African wants the help of Mr. Collins Nweke because he can't help himself

What is the significance of a black politician in Belgium when the country has a statue of a king that killed over 10 million Africans, including women and children? It’s a disgrace.

In a country like Belgium, that committed so much crime in Africa, both physically and medically in the colonial era, under the administration of the murderer King Leopold II, having a Black or an African politician in Belgium, should have given Africans in Belgium, a sigh of relief. Because all eyes are on him to make things easier and better for Africans living in Belgium.

Joel Savage playing the role of the African politician

Just like Africa, many Africans disappear when it comes to money matter in Europe. In this way, to fulfill financial obligations to ease the pain and suffering of many Africans, especially illegal immigrants, we rented an office, filled it with office equipment for the Africans to learn the language, while many come there to use the office equipment. With the dues from the members, we contributed regularly to see the office running. We continued doing this for two years, until financial mismanagement by one of the leaders running the center, led to permanent closing doors of the office.

All those tough and hard times, we were aware that there was an African politician in Belgium, but our efforts didn’t mean anything to him, until I joined the ‘Sierra Leone Welfare Association in Antwerp-SLAWA, to continue the help. Like before, I assisted many Sierra Leoneans with diverse problems, both materially and financially.

I wasn’t surprised when in 2005, on the behalf the Sierra Leone association, I was awarded ‘Certificate Of Merit’ by Mr. Abdul Kargbo, who was then the Chairman, for the selfless services I offered to SLAWA. Where was the African politician in Belgium then? He should have been the one to receive that certificate, not me.

The African politician in Belgium is not among those putting pressure on the Belgian government to pull down the statue of the butcher of Congo, Leopold II

Many African leaders, especially those from Congo are putting pressure on the Belgian government, to pull down the statue of Leopold. They also want Streets named after him changed because that man was a criminal, rapist and murderer. He doesn’t deserve such recognition in this modern times, after killing over 10 million Africans, including children.

If there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, because he killed 6 million Jews, then there shouldn’t be any statue of the criminal Leopold. I have written many articles about this issue and have requested African-Americans athletes and musicians to stop performing or participating in events in Belgium if they respect themselves. Believe me, I haven’t seen any article or heard the voice of the African politician in Belgium over this issue, like other leaders.

Investigating the high death rate of Africans at the notorious Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp

The African politician was still in Belgium, when the African community in Antwerp, who were scared to visit the Stuivenberg Hospital, call on me to find out the reason any African that goes to the hospital with a common leg injury, doesn’t come back alive. I investigated and found out that they were killing Africans for body organs.

After the publication of the book over this crime, Stuivenberg Hospital now remains one of the safest hospitals in Antwerp. Being an African, no media ever published this story, but the authorities know I published the truth, else Stuivenberg Hospital wouldn’t be as it is today.

African politician in Belgium clears his voice

Apart from reading his profile on social media, I haven’t really taken the trouble to know what the African politician does in Belgium because I am expecting him to know how Africans in Belgium, including Antwerp, are doing. Then couple of months ago, after writing an article captioned

‘Why Many Africans Are ‘Allergic’ To Reading?’

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-many-africans-allergic-reading-joel-savage?trk=mp-reader-card

The African politician in Belgium, thought its the right time for Africans, Africans in the Diaspora, including those in Belgium, to feel his presence. As soon as the article was published, he came out with this:

“I sincerely have my doubts that Joel Savage has been reading balanced materials judging by the sort of one-sided views he expresses. I see a resolve in his writings to dangerously reinforce stereotypes and disrespect Africans in general, including himself. I suggest Joel Savage embarks on that self-abuse all by himself and show Africans some respect, please!”

Joel Savage’s remarks:

Thanks, Mr. Collins Nweke. I am very happy that this discussion has forced you to join. It’s necessary to let you that I don’t write articles with my own imagination. I make research before making a post.There are hundreds of similar articles online or the internet, the reason many foreign organizations, including non-profit organizations, helping African children to cultivate the desire to read, by supplying books. You suppose to know this better than me. 

I am neither the first nor the last writer who have written such article, so why are you against me alone? The great African-American writer late Maya Angelou, stood firmly and challenged those that wrote, “If you want to hide anything from a black man write it in a book.” So I think this is the right time to challenge those who have written similar articles years ago, before coming to me. You might be pleased over the standard of reading in Africa, but hundreds like me aren’t. Thank you.

African politician’s remark:

Research indeed! I true research would have thought you better than dishing out opportunistic, unbalanced pieces, rather unperturbed! You still don’t get the point, do you, Mr. Savage? It’s unproductive going into a long epistle on your decision to consciously make sweeping and generalized one-sided statements about a people. You have an obligation to use your creative license with decorum but you have obviously chosen to hide under the excuse that those before you have sinned and that it’s fine to continue where they stopped. Good luck to you but let me assure you that you have made the wrong decision.

Comments of other contributors:

Patricia Pitsel:

While I agree that it is important for everyone and anyone to read (the man who does not read is no better off than the man who cannot read), I do have a concern with the vast over generalization that Africans don’t read. There are some 54 countries in Africa – surely the author is not suggesting that the same “don’t read gene” is equally distributed equally over the continent.

Victor Ikoli: Copy Editor at Qatar Tribune Newspaper

Reading books is fantastic but the culture is practically on the decline not only among Africans. I think reading books comes with skill and some people just don’t have it. Their parents didn’t have the skills and can’t read, their partners don’t read. They just don’t see the point to read. It’s a shame, but it just really isn’t part of some people’s lives to read books but things get better with quality book covers and content to attract people.

Toyin Adewunmi: Reporter at The Guardian Newspaper

I agree with you reading habit is fading off, and in order for this country to move forward, we need to bring the habit back to the grass root.

Joel Savage’s final comment:

Hello, Mr. Collins, I respect all those who comment on my articles, I will, therefore, like to discontinue arguing with you. I’m very glad that you live in Belgium yourself, during your leisure hours, please do visit the new library at the Connick Plein in Antwerp, from Monday to Saturday and count the number of Africans in the Library and those you will see at the nearby coffee shops drinking beer. We shall always remain friends on social platforms, but now I’m sorry I need to quit this argument and finally nothing changes my style of writing.

The writer’s opinion: All the seven continents have one goal, to reach the top of Mount Everest. Some have reached, some are in the middle but Africa is still at the place it started. The reason is simple and logical because we hate to learn, yet we don’t like corrections. We don’t even try to do something to realize achievement or failure when failures would have given us the experience to do better.

As for me, I write and my  passion as a writer doesn’t change my attitude or the tone of my articles, because, I don’t depend on either hate or love from readers, so if you hate me, you are just wasting your precious mind. That will rather encourage me to write something that would hurt you more, because “I write what I like.” Tribute to Steve Biko.

BELGIUM: If There Is No Statue Of Adolf Hitler, There Shouldn’t Be Statue Of Leopold

Leopold

Statue of the murderer and butcher of Congo, Leopold II

How would you feel as a black man, whether from Africa, America, Jamaica, Cuba, Surinam, Tobago, Trinidad, Guyana etc; if you see a statue of a murderer and a useless king, called Leopold II, who killed over 10 Africans, including the ancestors of Africans in the Diaspora, children and women in Belgium?

Believe me, your thoughts and feelings will never be the same and wish to curse Belgium for God to rain down brimstone and fire over them, if He humbly hears our prayers, because innocent blood can’t be shed and the dead can’t be mocked. I am very happy for the Jews; not seeing any statue today, of that criminal called Hitler who killed six million of them.

I give my greatest thanks to God, for bringing me to Europe decades ago, else I wouldn’t have known that some white people, including politicians and journalists, are senseless like a waste matter. Because at school we were brainwashed by our stupid teachers that the white man is closer to God, the reason they are very intelligent.

Upon arrival in Europe, I realized our teachers are just fools like those white men they thought are nearer to God. We Africans are rather nearer to God, the reason despite our sufferings, including wars, ethnic problems, man-made diseases, including Aids and Ebola, we keep on surviving.

While the advanced countries, despite the luxury and places of comfort, they are always committing suicide. (That doesn’t mean that I am happy about that, but I am rather commenting on this issue, because for ages, I’m trying to find out the reason, without any solution.)

Writer Joel Savage shares his experience as an Africa in Antwerp

Life in Belgium as a black man is a tough experience , but I always feel happy to be alive and share my story.

I am the happiest man indeed because the articles and books I write make some people uncomfortable. But they never change and remain the same. There is no country that can progress after building a statue of a murderer, the reason if you visit Belgium from other European countries, you’ll see the lack of development and progress in Belgium.

Didier Reyners Bestowed European Diplomat Pierre Vimont With Order Of Leopold? :Belgium Is A Country Without Shame

I don’t think in any civilized world, an intelligent person will be happy to receive  a decoration or honour of “Grand Officer of the Order of Hitler,” when bestowed on him, because the crime that Nazi leader committed has brought shame and dishonour to the entire Germany. The reason Hitler’s name has disppeared from from the lips of people and the society.

Belgium

A honour of disgrace to both Belgium and the receiver.

I couldn’t believe when I read about Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders  bestowed Mr Pierre Vimont, Executive Secretary General of the European External Action Service (EEAS), with the decoration of Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold  on March 5th, 2015, because King Leopold was the worst criminal in Belgian history than Adolf Hitler.

He killed, disfigured and maimed over ten million Africans, including children in Congo.To me such an award, decoration or honour bestowed on any body is a total disgrace to the entire family and country of the receiver. Reynders confirms:

“By appointing Pierre Vimont as Secretary General of the new “European diplomatic service” in 2009, the High Representative chose a person deemed by his colleagues as “the best diplomat at the Quai d’Orsay.”

For Belgium, the effective establishment of the EEAS was a foreign policy priority, particularly during the Belgian Presidency of the EU in 2010. Pierre Vimont played a crucial role in both the political and strategic steering of European foreign policy and the daily operation of the new external service. He helped realize the diplomatic success of High Representative Ashton in the second part of her mandate. Pierre Vimont did so while showing respect for all Member States, regardless of their size or power.

Through this award, Didier Reynders not only pays tribute to the achievements but also to the person of Pierre Vimont: a man characterized by his respect for others, a sense of concrete action and superior work ethic. For Didier Reynders, Pierre Vimont is a connoisseur and friend of Belgium. This is the third time that the French diplomat works and lives in Brussels.

The Writer’s opinion

I have said over and over and I will still say again. To say sorry, apologize or show remorse over crime one committed against another, doesn’t make you a stupid person, it rather shows how intelligent you are, but to pretend there is no problem, yet your ‘Backside’ is getting hot in the fire, shows you are inmature and lacks wisdom. Until all the statues of King Leopold come down and all the streets named after him changed, the world including Africa will always view Belgium as a cruel, savage and non-educated country which lacks wisdom.
