When Will African-Americans Learn?

Williams

Pharrell Williams, he does what a Jew won’t do because he doesn’t respect himself.

The problem with many African-Americans is they hate to be referred to as Africans, even though they didn’t miraculously land in America from heaven. Every race has a history. If African-Americans will continue to support Africa and show respect and love for the continent of their ancestors, they will fully enjoy America and be respected like all Americans. Before someone gives you respect, first you need to respect yourself. That’s what many African-Americans lack, the reason from the time of slavery they continue to suffer without end in America.

Both Jews and African-Americans have sad, distasteful, disgraceful and unpleasant historical stories, but the Jews are more respected than African-Americans because they don’t do what African-Americans do. While a Jew proudly wears his skull-cap to identify himself as Jew, African-American wouldn’t like to hear or to be called an African. “I am an American not an African,” he will tell you. It’s very sad indeed. Such statement is taken as ignorance than intelligence.

Let’s face the fact: Can any Jewish singer, perform in a country that has the statue of Adolf Hitler? Even in many countries, holding any material of Adolf Hitler is an offense. You may face fine or end up in prison. Why then should Lionel Richie, Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Rihanna Chris Brown etc; come to perform in Belgium, a country that has statues of a King, who maimed, tortured and brutally killed over ten million Africans, including children in Congo? Besides, there are so many streets named after him in the country.

Black people have been taken for granted, used, abused, mocked, scorned, hanged and sold into slavery, because of cheap labour and the colour of the skin. Unfortunately, black people are still sleeping without any effort to change the situation and history. All over Belgium’s television, advert of Pharrell Williams coming to perform in Belgium is being shown.

Do African-Americans who perform in Belgium think the Belgians love or care about them? They mustn’t deceive themselves. Belgium doesn’t care about them as human beings, but only use them to make money. If Belgium cares about them, they wouldn’t have built statues and name streets after someone who disgraced, humiliated and killed over ten million of their ancestors, including children in Africa.

How can African-Americans change history and make things better for themselves, when they ignore their own institutionalized or created disgrace and yield to people who don’t care about their welfare but only money?  If black people are still sleeping then I will remind them of the words of the ‘The Father of Black Consciousness’ the great Steve Biko of South Africa.

He writes “Black consciousness seeks to talk to the black man, in a language of his own. It is only by making familiar with the basic set up in the black world, that one will be aware of the urgent need for the reawakening of the sleeping masses.” He stressed, “It urges black people to judge themselves as human beings and not to be fooled by the white society, which has white-washed itself to enjoy privileges at the expense of blacks.”

If all Blacks, including African-Americans, want to be respected, they should let all the numerous statues of King Leopold II in Belgium come down, before ever setting their feet in Belgium to perform. “No one drinks medicine on behalf of a sick person.” We need to fight for ourselves. Those fight long started by Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, Kwame Nkrumah, Marcus Garvey, J. F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln etc; have to be continued.

No black artist, including African-American musicians, should perform in Belgium if they really respect themselves. That’s the only way we can change history to bring respect and comfort for our children in the future. The statues of King Leopold II must come down! How do you expect Belgium to respect the black man when they don’t respect their own people, French speaking ‘Walloon,’ causing a big division between them and the Flemish in such a small country?

Time for the black man to wake up is overdue, we have slept for too long.

Film Legend Al Pacino Has Nothing To Do With Nazi or Adolf Hitler

 

Entertainment

American film legend Al Pachino

If you want to be respected, first you need to respect yourself. A great man like Al Pacino, wouldn’t put himself into a center of controversy and ruin his reputation over Nazi or Adolf Hitler issues. The American acting legend pulled out of a stage adaptation of ’Hunger’, the dark psychological novel by Norway’s Knut Hamsun, because of the writer’s enthusiastic support for Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.

Al Pacino, best known for playing Michael Corleone in The Godfather films and Tony Montana in Scarface, had signed up to be the narrator in the play, which was scheduled to premiere at the Bergen International Festival in May 2017, when he decides to pull out. In today’s world, it’s insane to associate or support a man like Adolf Hitler.

The man killed six million Jews, the reason there is no statue of him anywhere, because of the crime he committed, so why then Belgium has built statues and named streets after a criminal worse than Adolf Hitler? King Leopold II, killed over ten million Africans, yet African and African-Americans keep taking part in activities held in Belgium yearly. How can African-Americans be respected when they continue to show that they are valueless?

Leopold 1

Statue of the criminal Leopold II in Brussels, Belgium.

In past Chris Brown, Beyonce, Rihanna etc; all performed in Belgium, instead of canceling Belgium tours. Again sports activities have brought hosts of African nationals and African-Americans to participate in events, instead of boycotting games over those statues of Leopold. “Don’t care where you come from, as long as you are a black man, you’re an African”- Sings the late Peter Tosh. Is it time for Africans and African-Americans to learn something from Al Pacino?

“No one drinks medicine on behalf of a sick person.” It’s the responsibility of every black man to fight the battle against racism, discrimination, disrespect and whatever system used to cripple the black man. Until all the statues of Leopold come down and the streets named after him denounced, any black man who respects himself shouldn’t participate in any even in Belgium, because they take our humbleness and respect as fools and slaves.

Pioneering Your Career Unparalleled In Today’s Job Market

Professionals

The definition of ‘life’ is defined in many ways by different dictionaries. My explanation for what life is: Someone taking a journey. If he drives carefully, he reaches his destination safely and if he drives recklessly, he ends up in a ditch or even dies. Everyone has a problem and many times psychologists and psychiatrists traced the cause of the problems to our homes.

Many were born in broken homes and daily abused by alcoholic parents. At school children becomes subject to bullies, racism, discrimination and all kinds of mental torture, leaving them psychological scars, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Even some children born handicap, feel discriminated and shunned by society.

Others suffering from ailments and diseases such as Aids, are completely cut off from society and friends, instead of the love they deserve to pass through the hard times of their lives. Going through such life difficulties: Do you know that you have the courage and willpower to deal with your problems and be whatever you want to be in the society?

Why do you allow problems to take over your life and sell your body when you have a beautiful future ahead of you? Why do you sell drugs for living when there are many opportunities to lift you up from that situation? No matter how serious your situation is, always remember that: you’ve got the power to change your life to be a great person in the society.

That’s where career planning comes in and in fact planning your career isn’t a difficult task or needs skills. You only have to list your interests and choose one to pursue. Many times when writing articles, I love to share my experience. Belgium is not like America, Canada or even Netherlands, countries which have many opportunities for the black man.

I have seen many black journalists in neighboring Holland, America, France, Canada etc, but in Belgium for the past fifteen years, I haven’t seen any black journalist on their television yet. That doesn’t bother me any way, it rather encourages me to focus on my career to become a successful writer, and one thing which I did to avoid depression and to concentrate on my goals is to look for a job as a cleaner.

Even though I have a forklift driving license, I gave up the job and took cleaning as my profession. I clean eight hours per day and write my books at the same time. Just find yourself something to do, no matter how poor the job is and earn something monthly. That will lift up your spirit to be happy to do whatever you want in life.

Professional 4

The world is full of glamorous and beautiful people. We watch film and musicians performing daily on stage or on the television, yet you wouldn’t believe your ears, when you hear of what some of the celebrities went through when they were young. Charlize Theron, one of the successful film actresses, father was alcoholic. Together with her mother, they were abused by her father, yet she put all that behind her to be a great actress today.

Christina Aguilera confessed about how her father physically abused her mother, sister and herself. Rihanna’s childhood was badly affected due to her father’s drug addiction. Today both Christina and Rihanna are successful as musicians. The ultimate question is, would you allow your problems to kill you or determined to kill the problems?

Life is short but while in this world, you can change the world with your knowledge. Crime does’t pay, education is the key, but if it eludes you, another door is open. Cultivate your talent and pray, because through Christ who strengthens us, we can do everything. My life story about how I made it as a writer and journalist in Belgium, going as far as to investigate the high death rate of Africans at the notorious Stuivenberg hospital in Antwerp and brought it to an end, can be read in the book:

Reflections Of Black History In Images: The Crime Of Belgium in Congo (Part 3)

Africa’s vast natural resources inspired Europeans to invade Africa. One of the greediest, bloodthirsty and wicked kings, was King Leopold II. This is the crime he committed during the colonial era in Congo.

Leopold 2

Despite the magnitude of those horrible crimes against humanity, Belgium mocked the victims and congratulated the perpetrator, King Leopold II, by naming streets after him throughout Belgium and built statues in his honour. We don’t have to blame God, for the evil in this world, because God is not part of this. Whatever a man sows, exactly the same he shall reap.

The reason I’m appealing to all African-American artists, Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Chris Brown, Rihanna etc, never to perform in Belgium if they respect themselves until streets named after King Leopold II are changed and those statues come tumbling down like Saddam Hussein’s.

African-Americans shouldn’t complain of disrespect when they are part of their own calamities. Would a Jewish singer perform in a country that has the statue of Adolf Hitler? This is the question to African-American musicians and athletes to answer.

Belgium and King Leopold II, the spirit of Patrice Lumumba and all the victims murdered in cold blood are saying that “The Dead Can’t Be Mocked, So Do What Is Right. Let this statue come down”

African-American Musicians Should Stop Performing In Belgium

Let’s face the fact: Can any Jewish singer, perform in a country that has the statue of Adolf Hitler? Even in many countries, holding any material of Adolf Hitler is an offence. You may face fine or end up in prison. Why then should Lionel Richie perform in Belgium, a country that has statutes of a King, who maimed, tortured and brutally killed over ten million Africans, including children in Congo? Besides there are so many streets named after him in the country.

Black people have been taken for granted, used, abused, mocked, scorned, hanged and sold into slavery, because of cheap labour and the colour of the skin. Unfortunately, black people are still sleeping without any effort to change their situation and history. All over Belgium’s television, advert of Lionell Richie coming to perform in Belgium is being shown.

 

CUT 2There shouldn’t be a statue of a king that did this to children

This is how the Black man is used for money but what affects them is less important. I wonder if Lionell Richie desperately needs money, because he must reason. How can Black people change history and make things better for themselves, when they ignore their own institutionalized or created disgrace and yield to people who don’t care about their welfare but only money?

In the past so many African-American singers had performed in Belgium. Rihanna, Beyonce, Chris Brown etc; all played in Belgium, without taking the disgrace that hangs on their necks into consideration. If black people are still sleeping then I will remind them with the words of the ‘The Father of Black Consciousness’ the great Steve Biko of South Africa.

He writes “Black consciousness seeks to talk to the black man, in a language of his own. It is only by making familiar with the basic set up in the black world, that one will be aware of the urgent need for reawakening of the sleeping masses.” He stressed, “It urges black people to judge themselves as human beings and not to be fooled by the white society, which has white-washed itself to enjoy privileges at the expense of blacks.”

Those fight long started by Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, Kwame Nkrumah, Macus Garvey, J. F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln etc; we have to continue.

No black artist, including African-American musicians should perform in Belgium, if they really respect themselves. That’s the only way we can change history to bring respect and comfort for our children in the future. The statutes of King Leopold II must come down! How do you expect Belgium to respect the black man, when they don’t respect their own people, French speaking ‘Wallonia,’ causing a big division between them and the Flemish in such a small country?
