Dyingcracy is what I call the slow death by democracy

16 Mar

South Africa identified the lack of skills and education as the reason South African youth are unemployed; involved in crime, drugs and sex that litters the streets with teenage mothers. The political solution is more shocking than the statistics of these anti-social behaviors.

The solution from the politicians, specifically the ruling party, was to encourage the mushroom of FET colleges. Called Further Education and Training colleges, these institutions are nothing but what you get in high school for former model C or to put it in South African terms, ‘white schools’. Yet often an FET graduate is still no match for someone with just a matric certificate from someone from, let’s say Parktown or DHS (Durban High School.) The promotion of FET education to black youth is so strong that it is clear that a large percentage of black youth will never have an academic mind. I agree we need plumbers and carpenters but it should really be because people want to do FET education not because university education is made in-accessible via costs and the obvious inequality of our society.
The African National Congress has a duty to every black person to re-dress the injustices of colonization and apartheid. To me this even means the land minerals must be nationalized to provide academic education to all those who had their future changed by apartheid. To say the born frees are not victims of apartheid is stupidly ignorant and insulting. Because apartheid determined what opportunities your grandparents can afford your parents thus determining how your parents could be able to equip you. Black people don’t want handouts, they want sound social re-dress and for me that re-dress is education and exposure that allows us to dream again, and to believe again. Else how were our parents to encourage us to dream when they saw their dreams being deferred?
The ruling party closed teacher colleges, merged technikons with universities thus creating only universities that have almost a uniform academic approach to education while technikons had a near technical kind of education and much more affordable than universities even in terms of admitting via results. The ruling party did not consult and does not consult properly when it comes to education. I will not even bother about the lowering of standards in high schools. It is clear the intellect and academic muscle is under attack, especially for those who cannot afford to buy education because although there are government institutions but the hidden truth is that education is in a way long been privatized. I have worked with both high school students and graduates and the level of intellect and the ability to grasp has dropped.
There is a consolidated effort to make black youth accept FET education as the last and greatest level of education suitable for them. In a country that lacks academics, leaders, social justice advocacy, independent minded journalists, problem solving scientists/ architects/entrepreneurs. Why is the ruling party lowering the bar and denying black youth to aim for the stars? And why do social movements, unions, political parties, social commentators finding no fault at this band-aid approach to problem solving? South Africa is not rising, it is dying a slow death. Not just morals but dreams, passion, hope, and the right to dignity.
Over the past 3 years I have taken several courses on social advocacy and they all brainwash activists into ‘advancing democracy’. But to what end?

the war of the Gods

23 May

the majority of black people get consumed by the medium. start talking shit about NEW AGE values and ONE WORLD desires. some go as far as calling themselves WORLD CITIZENS. i have seen a few countries, and none accept black people as their citizens. some claim they do but they call them REFUGEES. even the white people of CAPE TOWN, SOUTHERN AFRICA call Africans refugees in their own land. the black South Africans call the Chinese people Africans, but Zimbabwean and Mocambique people are called foreigners, amakwerekwere(someone who speaks something you can not understand. later changed to a deragatory term by the white media and their black stooges) … everytime you try to solve the mental problems of the black mind. you get thrown off the exit, until you shut up. and whiteness continues to feed on blackness. we are below slaves but we talk and psyche ourselves up with dreams of whiteness and it is alway IF I COULD MAKE MORE MNEY ILL BE WHITE AND BUY DIGNITY. the ones who wont bend to be fucked by white imperialism are punished by career suffocation. the ones who do not care about careers like me end up with fake white friends, studying them, documenting them, profiling them and if possible, feeding them self destructive white ideas like REVOLUTION, ANARCHISM and all the other ISMS that have been invented by those seeking eternal dominance. it is the war of the ages. very few black parents have told their children the story of creating, the promise SIMAKADE* made or even the meaning of this ere, the era of IMAGES (IMMORTAL+AGE).
so sometimes black people are thrown off by white media, especially the Jewish media creators. we are told not to call it when we see it because hating a Jew is like hating God. So we are forcefed News, Views, Jews…we see the Christians too selling their souls…talking shit about a home in Jerusalem…i ask my Aunt DO YOU KNOW WHERE IS JERUSALEM. she says -i dont-i say then what the hell you seeing THIS IS NOT MY HOME, MY HOME IS IN JERUSALEM for??? she does not stand alone. millions of black women have been taking abuse from men, and turning to the elder women, the elder women recommend Jesu Krestu…and so we die, spirit and flesh. some of us have a terrible thing of seeing through the mirrage. but didn Jesus de Krist die for seeing through the mirrage.
at some point we will get tired of telling, we will fight fire with fire. we will be called dictators, we will be hunted and even killed for show like bhambatha, biko, sankara, lumumba even gaddaff··i, saddam··. when we produce stories to reveal these horrors, it gets sidelines and shelved by the eating lot.
one minute whe are human, the next we are animals, never MANKIND. some marry religion, some marry money, some marry all under consumerism. in the end it is not a problem. it is the seeing that are ANGRY, NEGATIVE, HATEFUL, AND OBSESSED WITH RACE…ONE DAY…we will have to account … for even a man who denies his ancestors, when faced with a beast in the jungle he prays for strength, only to survive and die another day.

CUMJUVA A Great success although looms a betrayed perspective of FREEDOM

10 Oct

Written by Sabelo Dludla

The World Afrodescendant Youth Summit (WAYS) is the most  exciting milestone in the history of Afrodescendants. It gives more hope even than the declarations that gave birth to African Union and other African oriented tools of engagement with our infinite struggle for  freedom and self-advancement. I say so because the young lions have taken the centre stage and facilitated amongst themselves a platform that allows for more than just exchanging perspective but engaging outside of the normal spaces. That said my hope and enthusiasm has room for disappointments.

 

My coming to Costa Rica to contribute and learn from my brothers and sisters  during CUMJUVA has had expectations, and I know everyone who showed up had such expectations too, even if not similar.

I had hoped that before the seminars and deliberations begin we would look at whose paradigm do we use in our deliberations. I had also hoped that the panels will be chosen based on seeking regional understandings. Unfortunately in the part of my country ~CUMJUVA gave a politician, Mr Andile Lungisa (NYDA http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/YourStory/How-the-NYDA-could-have-spent-R106m-20111010) the podium, and we already lost footing L.  Andile did a great job however revealing his spiritual nudity and what has become of the government of South Africa. That said I waste no time on the government that let our lives be battle for survival.

I had hoped that we would start by declaring that we are Afrodescendants and as a result we would for once take the African paradigm of navigating the world, for how can we agree that the world is anti-black (see Troy Davis, Andries Tatane, Amadou Diallo, Steve Biko, Thomas Sankara, Chris Hani, Zimbabwe, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia…that’s if you don’t believe the world is anti-Africa…) I understand that in Central America and to a degree in the Caribbean the Afrodescendants there don’t face direct military operations of the US, and they face worst in the CIA operations and capitalism strangling and racism as faced globally, and UN and UK, we are under siege. We face western COUP DE TAT supported by the very same organizations that gather us to talk Rights Law and Justice, on the paradigm of our oppressors.

I had hoped that our deliberation will be guided at best by Afrodescendant spiritual understanding of the world, not the perspectives of the people who have identified themselves as our enemy and who have spent all their lifetime to destroy and keep us under subjugation. In this regard I believe we already dropped the ball, and maybe I have been harsh to say we sold out, for all the Afrodescendants, with an exception to a few, have agreed that ‘not everyone who helps us is our friend and comrade’. I add that all organizations with ‘UN’ are tools to destroy and keep us under the thumb of oppression forever. This include UNESCO, UNAID, USAID, UNCHR, UNHR…and most of them who use liberal language against military and underhanded assault on Africans. My view is that we cannot afford to be liberal at this time when military bases are being build in Botswana and American battle ships dock in the Somali waters claiming to be fighting pirates, which are actually Somalia’s coast guards that protect Somali waters from the very same Western Countries that dump toxic wastes in the horn of Africa. WE Are BEING KILLED Everyday by OUR POLITICIANS AND THEIR WESTERN CONTROLLERS, and stools like UN, NATO, USAID and all these global tools are part of this WAR ON AFRICA.

 

While we used ways to connect and plot our strategies under the table, I have already reservations with Afrodescendants working in Washington. Knowing Condolesa Rise, Collin Powell, Barack Obama and many black liberals makes me uneasy. Especially when after I spoke a sister who is a banker in Washington stood up to directly while being indirect, clarify that she is there to use the ‘Washington’ tools and not to engage on African perspective…she would later present the most evil tool of the western banking system as a viable and desirable tool for Afrodescendants. This view needs to be understood and not dismissed without fully understnding how is UNESCO really used. UNESCO steals lands in Central America, Africa and the East by calling them World Heritage Sites, thus these lands no longer belong to the people but the UN, which Africans do not control or write the policies, but enemies of Africa do.

I was also offended by other presentations made by ‘officials’ from global organization on issues like RIGHTS, LAW, JUSTICE. When you live in a continent under paralyzing attack and legal looting by white supremacy you cannot take lying down the presentation of the white’s only fraternal organizations as tools of liberation. It seemed to me that WAYS had already decided that we are subjects of ‘white imperialists domination’ and we must keep it that way. How can we accept for once that the people who came to our land and raped our mothers and killed our fathers would provide us the tools for liberation? How can we accept without questions that people who invented, slavery, colonization and all the evil experience afrodescendants have experienced can one day give us tools of Liberty ?

With all these frustrations I focused on the positive nature of the event and the heavenly possibilities. We emerged victorious in more ways than one. Some might say but UN’s put money in our course. To this I say they should and we demand they keep doing so because everything the world sees in America and Europe was build on our blood. The world owes Afrodescendants so much they can never pay us back for our pain and theft that happened in Africa.

The ideological war is a race war

16 May

Africa has found itself often the carcass that vultures of academia and intelligentsia feast on. Having failed hundreds of years ago to realize that the war of ideas is more important than the wars Europeans and later Americans were bringing to it. The war of ideas I speak of is the world of thinking new societies. These ideas are at the pillar of society. They include the idea of the state, the idea of central governance, the idea or law, justice, religion, democracy, colonization, apartheid, rights etc.
The white race has always understood that the cultures that give the world a direction will always dominate through its ideas and drill them into the skull of all through civilization, education, media and all available avenues.
Africa has allowed itself, mainly by the greed of its ruling elite and the laziness of its academia, to be the doormat of ideas. There is absolutely no reason why any country in Africa should subscribe to the idea of the state as dreamed by the very same people who colonized Africa. The is not a single white man who seats and think ‘what idea can I push down Africa’s throat that will make Africa great’. Every idea handed down to us by our colonizers is poisonous to our course, that is to those who understand the need for Africa to return to itself and be itself.
While most African ‘liberal-pan-africanists’ would jump around for shallow changes like changing the name of the state. I argue that every African country needs to remake the state if they need to and must think of something better than the state, something that put people at the heart of it and not structures. Changing the name of Rhodesia to Zimbabwe did not cut Zimbabwe loose from the world economic system, or from its ties to Britain as its colonizer. It clearly did not make Zimbabwe the original project of the Zimbabweans. The Zimbabweans have been merely continuing the project of the white race. And this is why when the Africans of Zimbabwe fight with the Europeans-who forced themselves on Zimbabwe. The world economy can crush Zimbabwe from a distance. The same can be sad for many African states.
The Republic of South Africa subjects its citizens to the justice system based on the Roman-Dutch law. A stupid thinking process that is so foreign to the Africans in the country that they are helpless victims to it. This idea puts justice and the protection of the law above the citizens. The police are protectors of the law, not the person who has been treated unjustly. The idea is so vague and removed from serving the people that even criminals have no regard for it. Lazy to think and too busy feeding on themselves like beaten snakes, the Africans in the Republic of South Africa fight each other for the crumbs of the white world. They beg and bribe to be accepted to white clubs that fuel the white race. Whether it’s the World Cup soccer tournament or the United Nations. Africans are always ready to serve and fight for ideas of the white race whose purpose is to put the white race above any other race.
The torment of democracy is one of the most active ideological weapon. African who have fought to bring this idea to Africa are made instant heroes by the white race appreciating their ‘self-less-ness’ in destroying themselves so that the white race can win the war of ideas. Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu have been instant heroes through their fight for democracy. Although we chanted ‘freedom’ it seems those who led the fight knew exactly what they were in it for. The recent developments of putting South Africa above all African countries is no surprise because the Africans in South Africa have proven that they can inflict democracy upon themselves. This is a messy situation but we celebrate it anyway.
In Kenya Wangari Mathai has become the most globally recognized Kenyan. Her heroism comes from pushing another European idea that gives more power to the white race. It’s called global warming. The war of ideas is one that gives the dominant culture power to change, influence, shape and even control the world. White culture does that. They have thought the education system, they’ve thought the governing systems, they’ve thought the trading systems. The Asian continent has been able to free itself partly from this although one may argue they went to the belly of white ideas and learned them and adopted them into their own cultures. Africa has not been so forward in its thinking. Africa has swallowed and been swallowed by the ideas of whiteness, they are its loyal servants, but also they are its crawling babies, its doormat, its dog and when mating season comes, they are that too.
I am convinced that Africa is capable of thinking in and beyond this century. I know of the systems that my nation had were some great and some needing more work. The lack of the will or the denial of the existence of the race and ideological war makes Africa seem like a blind person in a totally silence world.  African leaders for generations have been fighting for freedom and self-determination. It is however said that they interpret self-determination as being able to name the streets and buildings within the land. This while they don’t fashion the ideologies that run the country and determines its contacts with the world.
