Eyes that can’t see
By Lucius Gantt
Many Africans, African Americans and others of African descent have eyes but can’t see!
Africa is the center of the world, where mankind began and the cradle of civilization!
The Mother Land is not a continent of nappy haired naked people running around with spears in their hands and bones in their noses but we can’t see that!
The devil will tell you everything about Africa is bad and at the same time work undercover and behind the scenes to pirate African resources, African commodities like oil, gold, diamonds, coffee, rubber, uranium and platinum. Satan even dominates and controls the refining of the African Shea nuts that you find in all of your cosmetics and in some of your food stuffs like chocolate.
Yes, many of us have a twisted idea about our royal ancestors and our glorious past because the tricky devil has taught us to hate ourselves, each other, our history and out culture!
Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti said it best when he recorded one of my favorite songs.
“English man gets an English name, Russian man gets Russian name, Chinese man gets Chinese name, German man gets German name, Spanish man gets Spanish name but Africans have eyes but can’t see.
“(Our) religion is disorganized, utilities disorganized, government disorganized and infrastructure is disorganized. Everything is upside down,” Fela’s song says.
For some reason, people of African descent, especially African Americans, don’t think Africa is great, they don’t know or care about the African way and they don’t do things African style!
Who would you want to be like – a cave woman or like Cleopatra, a cave man or a man like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkrumah or Nelson Mandela?
If you don’t know where you came from how can you determine where you are going? If you don’t know what’s best for you how can you tell what’s good for you?
Black people in America and Blacks all over the world should set their minds on Africa. We need Pan-Africanism today more than ever.
We have no excuse for being knowledgeable about our great past, history and culture.
Stop letting Facebook and Twitter educate you about you. Pick up a book sometimes. In fact, buy your children and grandchildren more books and read to them and with them.
If you don’t know, in my opinion, the African race is the strongest race.
Why do I say that? You have to be the strongest to occupy the center of the world and to overcome colonization, slavery, hate crimes and everything else that we went through and are going through!
Those colored contacts you are wearing are perhaps a little foggy. Check your eye sight and you’ll realize when African Americans unite with Africans and others of African descent the world will be ours!
