Culture: White People Learning What It Takes To Be An African

 

Africa

Did curiosity really kill the cat? Why so many white people now interested in the diversity of culture, leading them to Africa, the continent the Western and American media never write anything good about, than Aids, Ebola, war, famine, and crime?

The media plays an important role in the society; unfortunately many don’t see it in that way, because of the type of news they disseminate to the public. I was quite impressed and amazed when I met a white man telling me about his visit to Sierra Leone and Ghana. The fact that he could even speak some of the languages inspired me to find out his reasons for leaving his continent of luxury, to a strange hard living continent like Africa.

“If a white man comes to live in Africa for six months or a year, the Western media hails him  brave and adventurous, with publication appearing in the newspapers, but the same places I visited are where Africans have lived from generation to generation but the media fails to praise them on the same issue,” said the white man. He is right. There is crime everywhere in the world, especially Italy, Britain, Columbia, Brazil, and America, but the media has made South Africa the most dangerous country on earth.

Every year thousands of Europeans travel to Africa, just because they want to know how Africans live, despite the lack of electricity in many villages, medical facilities, water shortage and poor sanitation. It is amazing to see many white people on African streets, with families interacting and learning many things including how to make African meals. Surprisingly some participate in cultural and festival activities dressed in African fashions, especially in Kente cloth.

Despite the lack of teachers and poor educational facilities, an African child can be able to tell one geographically, the capital city of every country in the world, yet ask a white child of the same age, the capital city of Ghana, Sierra Leone, South Africa or any African country. He will tell you “I don’t know,” with quick remarks “Africa is poor,” because that’s all that his geography teacher has taught him.

I am hundred percent sure that if African and European children meet in a quiz competition, the African children would win because they know much about Europe and America than what European and American children know about Africa. This is not an exaggeration but facts based on research I did. Imagine an African student of fourteen in a Belgium school, who doesn’t even know who Patrice Lumumba was, even though her parents come from Congo. This is a tragedy, not sadness. I didn’t blame her because teachers have failed to teach European students enough about Africa.

I wish exchange of program in education and on moral issues, would take some European children to Africa, to learn the reason why despite immense poverty in many parts of Africa, students don’t smoke, commit suicide, no teenage pregnancy, no shooting, stabbing and above all the reason why respect exists in African schools than any school in Europe and America.

If One Pretends To Be Dead, Mourners Will Pretend To Bury You Alive

problem 1

Discussing your problems with someone you love is the best way to get help and solutions to the problem.

“If one pretends to be dead, mourners will pretend to bury you alive,” is one of the thousands of African proverbs meant to educate, shape our lives and inspire us, as each proverb carries a moral lesson, advice, and wisdom. This particular proverb speaks against pretending.

As imperfect human beings, we are responsible for both the good and bad things we do. Whichever way one takes it, to pretend is also considered to be something bad. The question is why do people pretend? According to a study, pretending has both advantages and disadvantages.

Sometimes one needs to pretend. For example, when all of a sudden in a cinema hall, a gunman on a shooting spree takes everyone by surprise without any escaping route, pretending to be dead among those already dead could save your life. But in other ways, pretending can cause self-destruction, depression, loneliness and other psychological problems. How?

The pressure in the society is enormous. Things are not going well, yet many people prefer to hide their problems behind a false smile. If you don’t share your problem with your family or a trustworthy friend, how can someone know your problem to give the attention or help you need? Researchers reveal that hiding a problem behind a false smile or faking happiness, is more likely to bring you harmful feelings.

You might not be happy with your job, because your boss or a colleague is sexually harassing you, exploiting you physically, emotionally and mentally, yet you wear a false smile behind such psychological scars. Instead of pretending to be okay, it’s always better to tell your problem to someone to receive help.

Many wish to be someone, because of the extravagant lives other people live. But we must be careful about what we sometimes wish for. We must be content with whatever we have to live a happy life. Don’t let your neighbor’s expensive car, push you to live beyond your means, and put on a fake smile, deceiving people that you are living great, while you know that you are struggling to make ends meet.

In Africa and other countries around the world, many are believed to be sick of HIV but scared to go and see the doctor, because they aren’t ready to be told they have contracted HIV or Aids.  They rather prefer to hide their problems with a fake smile, forgetting that no one drinks medicine on the behalf of a sick person.

To pretend that everything is okay, while suffering, is not good for our health, we must, therefore, confine our problems to those close to us for help and solutions. That’s the only way we can overcome and defeat our problems.

US Bio-warfare Laboratories in West Africa Are The Origins Of The Ebola Epidemic

Leone.

By Johan Van Dongen

More and more citizens around the world, are strongly demanding United States of America to face justice at an international tribunal, for its flagrant human rights violations as described in many publications and official documents and of course in our book ‘Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind’ referring to the fact that the deadly Ebola virus was reported and documented to be spread by the US, kingpin of human rights abuses in the world. Ronald Reagan’s Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts disclosed it an article that the U.S. developed a progenitor of Ebola virus, at bio-weapon institutes built in West African countries, for the purpose of launching a biological warfare. The unexpected news shocked the world.

Russian scientists, a Liberian professor and an Egyptian newspaper criticized the U.S. government and military, as main culprits who conducted a bio-terrorism in African nations with Ebola virus, crime and violation of human rights, despite the US all the time, hunting and prosecuting those that violate human rights internally and in international arena.

“It’s a typical US behavior,” said Dr. Kim Yong Suk, North Korean’s chief of the Ministry of Higher Education. Anti-racism demonstrations have lasted for months in the US, with the case of shooting an innocent young black man to death by a white policeman as a starting point. Even after a state of emergency was declared in Ferguson City, Missouri State on November 17, 2014, the demonstrations raged throughout the U.S., including New York and Los Angeles, in protest against the failure to indict the murderer.

Within this chaotic period, another US police again shot to death a 12-year-old black boy in Ohio State. What happened clearly show that the US is the worst tundra of human rights condemned worldwide. These injustices place the US in a position of an A-class criminal that should face a stern punishment by mankind for its unprecedented human rights violations.

Normally almost every Western journalist such as Marc van den Broek of the Dutch newspaper ‘De Volkskrant,’ politicians like George W. Bush, Richard M. Nixon and Ronald Reagan or scientists like Ab Osterhaus, the Dutch professor virology and advisor of the Dutch Government, wouldn’t agree with me but reject these accusations. But someone like investigative journalist, Joel Savage will agree with me, because he sees injustice, the way I see it, and wouldn’t cover up truth the way I wouldn’t cover the truth over Aids and Ebola medical crimes.

A quick reference: I always refer Joel Savage as an investigative journalist, the fact that he was the only African journalist, (despite an African politician in Belgium) to go to the notorious Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp, to investigate the high death rate of Africans in that hospital, which had sent shock waves through the spine of the African community in Antwerp, that no African dares to enter the place.

Joel Savage’s investigations at the hospital which he published in his book ‘Little Boygium-Wonderful Experience,’ didn’t only bring the killings of Africans for body organs to an end, but also made Stuivenberg, one of the safest hospitals in Antwerp. “The investigation was necessary because Belgium committed horrific crimes against Africans in Congo and Rwanda, above all they built statues and named streets after Leopold, the criminal that committed the crimes, when there is no statue of Adolf Hitler. This shows that the body of an African is valueless, the reason I believed they were killing African patients for body organs” Said Joel Savage

Micro-surgeon, Professor Johan Van Dongen. His books about Aids and Ebola medical crimes published in Dutch, caused his downfall in his native Holland, but he is happy because the truth is gradually popping out.

There are scientists who couldn’t cope with these criminal and their infectious lies and turn towards the green side. One of them is Professor Francis Boyle. We would like to thank him for his open interview as published below.

Law Professor Francis Boyle interrogated

A reporter learned that Federal agents from the FBI, CIA and Terrorism Task Force, tried to get a distinguished international lawyer to inform them about Arab and Muslim clients, in violation of their Constitutional rights to attorney-client privilege. When the lawyer refused, the FBI placed him on a “terrorist watch list.”

Law professor Francis Boyle, have a chilling account of how in the summer of 2004, two agents showed up at his office at the University of Illinois. “Unannounced and not knowing who they were, they questioned my secretary, gained access to my office and interrogated me for about one hour. They repeatedly tried to get me to become their informant on my Arab and Muslim clients. This would have violated their (clients) Constitutional rights and my ethical obligations as an Attorney, so I refused, then they put me on all the ‘terrorist watch list’ in America.

Professor Francis A. Boyle interviewed by Aggeliki Dimopoulou

Could Ebola have escaped from US Bio-warfare Labs? American law professor Francis A. Boyle, answers questions for tvxs.gr and reveals that USA has been using West Africa as an offshore to circumvent the Convention on Biological Weapons and do bio-warfare work.

Is Ebola just a result of health crisis in Africa – because of the large gaps in personnel, equipment and medicines – as some experts suggest?

That isn’t true at all. This is just propaganda being put out by everyone. It seems to me, that what we are dealing with here is a biological warfare work that was conducted at the bio-warfare laboratories set up by the USA on the west coast of Africa. And if you look at a map produced by the Center of Disease Control you can see where these laboratories are located. And they are across the heart of Ebola epidemic, at the west coast of Africa. So, I think these laboratories, one or more of them, are the origins of the Ebola epidemic.

US government agencies are supposed to do defensive biological warfare research in these labs. Is there any information about what are they working on?

Well, that’s what they tell you. But if you study what the CDC and the Pentagon do… They say it is defensive, but this is just for public relation purposes than anything. It’s a trick. What it means is what they decide at these bio-warfare labs. They say, “well we have to develop a vaccine”, so that’s their defensive argument.

Then what they do is to develop the bio-warfare agent itself, usually by means of DNA genetic engineering. And then they say, “Well to get the vaccine we have to develop the bio-warfare agent” – usually by DNA genetic engineering – and then they try to work on the vaccine. So it’s two uses type of work.

I haven’t read all these bio-warfare contracts but that’s typical of the way the Pentagon CDC has been doing this since at least the 1980’s. I have absolute proof from a Pentagon document that the Center of Disease Control was doing bio-warfare work for the Pentagon in Sierra Leone, the heart of the outbreak, as early as 1988.

And indeed it was probably before then because they would have had to construct the lab and that would have taken some time. So we know that Fort Detrick and the Center for Disease Control are over there, Tulane University, which is a well-known bio-warfare center here in USA – I would say notorious for it – is there. They all have been over there.

In addition, USA government made sure that Liberia, a former colony of the USA, never became a party to the Biological Weapons Convention, so they were able to do bio – warfare work over there – going back to 1980’s – the USA government, in order to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention. Likewise, Guinea the third state affected here – and there is an increase now – didn’t even sign the Biological Weapons Convention.

So, it seems to me, that the different agencies of the US government have been always there try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention and engage bio-warfare work. Indeed, we had one of these two lab bio-warriors admit in the NY Times that they were not over there for the purpose of either screening or treating people.

That’s not what these labs are about. These labs are there, in my opinion to do bio-warfare work for different agencies of the US government. Indeed, many of them were set up by USAID. And everyone knows that USAID is penetrated all up and down by the CIA and CIA has been involved in bio-warfare work as well.

Are we being told the truth about Ebola? Is that big outbreak begun all of a sudden? How does it spread so quickly?

The whole outbreak that we see in the west coast of Africa, this is Zaire/Ebola, the most dangerous of five subtypes of Ebola. Zaire/Ebola originated 3500 km from the west coast of Africa. There is absolutely no way that it could have been transmitted 3500 km.

And if you read the recently published Harvard study on the DNA analysis of the West Africa’s Zaire/Ebola, there is no explanation about how the virus moved there. And indeed, it’s been reported in the NY Times that the Zaire/Ebola was found there in 1976, and then WHO ordered to be set to Porton Down in Britain, which is the British equivalent to Fort Detrick, where they manufacture all the biological weapons for Britain.

And then Britain sent it to the US Center for Disease Control. And we know for a fact that the Center for Disease Control has been involved in biological warfare work. And then it appears, at least from whatever I’ve been able to put together in a public record, that the CDC and several others US bio-warriors exported Zaire/Ebola to West Africa, to their labs there, where they were doing bio-warfare work on it. So, I believe this is the origins of the Zaire/Ebola pandemic we are seeing now in West Africa.

Why would they do that?

Why would they do that? As I suggested to try to circumvent the Biological Weapons Convention, to which the US government is a party. So, always bio-warriors do use offensive and defensive biowarfare work, violating the Biological Weapons Convention. So effectively they try to offshore it into West Africa where Liberia is not a party and Guinea is not a party. Sierra Leone is a party. But in Sierra Leone and Liberia there were disturbances which kept the world from really paying attention of what was going on in these labs.

Recently USA sent troops to «fight» Ebola. What do you think about that move?

The US military just invaded Liberia. They send in the 101st Airborne Division to Liberia. That’s an elite division of combat and they have no training to provide medical treatment to anyone. They are there to establish a military base in Liberia. And the British are doing the same in Sierra Leone. The French are already in Mali and Senegal. So, they’re not sending military people there to treat these people. No, I’m sorry.

Weren’t they afraid Ebola’s going to go out of control even in the USA or EU in a massive way?

It’s already gone in the USA and the European Union. So, there it is. Which raises the question: Was this Zaire/Ebola weaponized at any of these labs? I don’t have an answer to that question. I am trying to get an answer. And therefore it is much more dangerous than the WHO and the CDC are telling everyone. The WHO and the CDC are up to their eyeballs in this. They know all about what ‘s going on. It was the WHO that ordered the original Zaire/Ebola in 1976 to be sent to Porton Down for biological warfare purposes. So this could be more dangerous than the WHO and the CDC are saying.

And you can’t believe anything they telling you because they are involved in that. But certainly I can’t say it has been weaponized. I don’t know that yet for sure. I have the Harvard genetic analysis of it. When I was in college I had very good courses in genetics, and biochemistry and population biology but I am not a professor of genetics. I have a friend who is a professor of genetics and he is going to take a look at this and try to figure out if there’s been a DNA genetic engineering organism GMO perpetrated or performed on the Zaire/Ebola.

Is there a genetically modified organism at work, a GMO?

I don’t know. But if a GMO is at work that’s a pretty good sign it’s been weaponized. But in anyway, it is far more dangerous than the CDC and the WHO are telling anyone, because it’s clearly transmitted for a certain distance – we don’t know how far – by air. Breathing and coughing and sneezing. So, anyone treating people seems to me, are going to need not only a protective suit but probably a breathing apparatus, at minimum.

And you saw what happened to that Spanish nurse and that Spanish priest that were brought in, infected with Ebola. So right now the WHO and the CDC are telling healthcare workers that in addition to suits they need breathing apparatuses. So, again, I don’t believe you can trust anything the WHO or the CDC are telling you. And I really don’t know about the European Health Agency…

If they‘re believing the WHO and the CDC then, in my opinion, they ‘re not properly protecting the health of the European people. And it’s simply bizarre that the CDC and WHO are relegating the screenings to the people in west Africa. It’s just bizarre. They need to be protecting health of their own people and they aren’t doing that. I read some of the European press but I’m not sure precisely what the European Health Agency is recommending but they certainly can’t rely upon the WHO and the CDC. As for Greece, I know you have your own Health Ministry there and they cannot rely upon them at all, as well.

Thank you,

Professor Francis Boyle.

The Author

sarah 2

Sarah Pekkanen is the internationally-bestselling author of the novels CATCHING AIR, THE BEST OF US, THESE GIRLS, SKIPPING A BEAT and THE OPPOSITE OF ME. Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously.

She penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery.

Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true. At least some dreams – Brad Pitt has yet to show up on her doorstep wearing nothing but a toolbelt and asking if she needs anything fixed. So maybe it’s only G-rated dreams that come true.
