Africa is The West’s Greatest Antipathy

“We have not found among the Europeans who have become our neighbors and who desire our welfare and independence. The West Europeans in their desire for new land have encircled us crossed our borders to deprive us of our independence and are causing us trouble” Ras Makonnen – cousin of Menilek ll. June 1892
President Barack Obama marked the Persian New year, ‘Nowruz’ with a special video message to Iranians. The First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a celebration of the Persian new year, at the White House. Even Google celebrated the Iranian New Year Navroz with a colorful doodle on its homepage.
I agree with the author of this article who wrote, “there is absolutely nothing wrong with honoring the many events celebrated within this magnificent e pluribus unum melting pot of ours. The problem is that this is not about honoring a group of people who make up less than 1% of our population.”
The question I want to ask as an African – as an Ethiopian – is, why haven’t the “African-American” President Obama, First Lady Michelle or Google never ever honored on the 11th of September the one truly African traditional New Year’s celebration – the Ethiopian New Year? Why don’t they extend their best wishes to the great ancient and honorable people of Ethiopia? Not that it matters, but, being curious, do Ethiopians have to abandon their Judaeo-Christian identity, or constantly demonize Americans (the great Satan) like the Iranians nicknamed them, do they have to terrorize Westerners, infiltrate their institutions, bomb their embassies, take hostages or force them out of the country to earn their attention and respect? Do bulling and terror sell?
It gets even more curious…
‘Black’ Africa Ain’t a Priority
Recently, CNN military analyst, Maj. Gen. James “Spider” Marks revealed a controversial perspective on why the Boko Haram atrocities are ignored
According to him, the United States has the capability to root out Boko Haram but it’s not a priority. He also stated that Black West Africa is not a priority. He goes on to state that if Boko Haram were in some other region of the world perhaps in “White Africa” (North Africa) or in the Middle East, it would cause more alarm.
“Very stark, very hard to say, but that’s the case right now,” he said.
French Cynicism: Africa gets priority when it comes to demonization of its people, intimidation and murder of its elites
French international broadcaster went down to Ethiopia to report on the Great Renaissance Dam. It came back with nothing new, but with the usual french cynicism concerning Africa and Africans. After all, cynicism is perfected by the French – as it emerged in the works of leading french atheist “Enlightenment” philosophers, such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Denis Diderot.
Today’s France practically finds itself in a state of stealth cultural war with Arab Muslim invaders. It really strikes me, instead of dealing directly with this scourge, the French continue babysitting North Africans, training them to persecute French Jews, expel them from their ancestral homes, work together with the same Arabs to destabilize parts of the African continent. Mali, DRC, CAR etc are just some of the tragic hotspots where la petit “Grand Nation” has used the Arab useful idiots to demonstrate their outdated interventionist culture and control mechanism. They arrange a well orchestrated chaos and destruction plan in order to play the “savior” card. In the Ethiopian case – with the report on the Renaissance Dam – the French don’t hide their intention to undermine the development of the Ethiopian nation — which never showed enmity towards France and its people. In this cynical report the French attempt to paint too much negativity around the dam construction project – simply primitive anti-Ethiopian propaganda – an ugly disinformation campaign on behalf of Egypt.
