Black Soccer Sides Suck

Although as I write this Ghana has just eliminated the USA and thus enters the last 8, but remember they only qualified for the last 16 by being awarded a penalty for a “handball” that never was – against Australia.

So the dreams of FIFA and the multi-cultis who are so desperate to see a nigger nation steal the Soccer World Cup, are thus kept alive for another game. But, can you imagine the uproar and the rioting that would occur if the blackies made the Final, or even the semis, and were then eliminated by having an “unfair” penalty awarded against them?

Is there a referee alive who is brave enough to award a crucial penalty against a black side on the verge of winning the WC? I seriously doubt it.

Anyway, if Ghana makes it through to the semis, I am predicting that the Africoon quota will be increased from 5 to 6 or even 7 teams at the next WC. Because by foul means or foul a black side MUST be made to win and thus eliminate another hurdle of the white racism and inequality that has always held them back!

Anyway, the best thing about this WC was the humiliating early exit of a “French” team whose majority black players apparently refused to sing the Marseillaise and then went on training strike over an alleged “racist” slight from their white trainer. The way things are going Englands similarly multi-cult side will also exit soon – and good riddance!

I fancy Uruguay as an outside bet – dammit I really meant to have a $100 punt on them at the outset when I probably could have got 100 to 1, but my computer connection was so poor and the Betfair site is so full of stuff that I couldn´t get the frigging bet on. Too late now, others have woken up to their chances.

Anyway, this is a very good article about the racial make-up of the competing teams – be sure to click on the link and read the always excellent comments of the Amren readers.

Soccer—fútbol, Fußball, futebol, football—is the world’s most popular sport, and literally hundreds of millions of people are now watching the 2010 World Cup. {snip}


Race is also on display on the pitch and for all the talk of diversity, multiculturalism, and a global community, most of the 32 teams in the field feature racially exclusive teams.

European and South American teams dominate world soccer and have won every single World Cup. But to make the event a truly global affair, there are quotas for each region so that everyone feels represented.

I watched each opening round game and noted the races of all 11 starters for each squad. All five sub-Saharan Africa squads (Nigeria, South Africa, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Cameroon) start all blacks. All three Asian teams (Japan, South Korea and North Korea) start all Asians. The one North African team (Algeria) starts all Arabs. The eastern European teams (Slovenia, Slovakia, and Serbia) start all whites.

Australia and New Zealand are not soccer powers but each qualified this year. Australia starts an all white team and New Zealand starts 10 whites and one aboriginal (probably a Maori).

Latin American teams are a mixed bag racially, much like the region itself. The races of some of the players are often hard to pinpoint. Are they mestizos or darker skinned whites of Portuguese or Spanish descent?

The three white nations of Latin America start mostly white sides. Argentina starts nine or 10 whites with one or maybe two mestizos. Uruguay starts nine whites with one clear mestizo and one clear Negro. Chile starts seven or eight whites with three or four mestizos.

Mexico and Paraguay have a starting 11 consisting of a mixture of whites and mestizos. Honduras starts eight mestizos and, surprising, three blacks.

Brazil starts four whites and seven players who are black or racially mixed.

The United States again made the tournament and has a decent shot of advancing to the next round of 16. Racially, the team starts seven whites and four blacks. Mestizos are now about 15 percent of the U.S. population, but there are only three Hispanics on the team and one of them—Carlos Bocanegra—is clearly a white Hispanic. The two mestizos are backups and there are no Asians or Middle Easterners on the U.S. squad. The U.S. is being overwhelmed with millions of soccer-mad immigrants every year. Why aren’t these people making the national team?

So far, most nations of the world have teams that racially represent their people. Black Africans, Asians, Arabs, and Eastern Europeans (God bless ’em) can support teams that reflect them 100 percent. Whites in Australia and New Zealand can still proudly support a team that looks like them.

Blacks are overrepresented on the Brazilian side, but most Latin American nations have squads that reflect their racial demographics. Americans are no doubt used to blacks being overrepresented on national sports teams, but the current squad has enough whites so that it is not viewed as alien—like the often all-black U.S. national basketball team.

We are constantly told that multiculturalism and diversity are unalloyed blessings. But of course, white nations are the only countries that are enjoying these blessings—and it is starting to show in the national squads of the Western European teams.

Italy has won four World Cups including the last one in 2006. They cling stubbornly to the view that Italians don’t need blacks to win World Cups and still start an all-white (and, with one exception, all-Italian) side. {snip}

Germany has won three World Cups and is always a threat to win it all. This year’s starting squad can be described—depending on your definition of white—as either all-white or as nine whites and two Turks. Like Italy, the Germans have stubbornly resisted starting supposedly superior black players.

France has shown no such resistance. Historically not a soccer power, they won their only World Cup in 1998 with four black starters and apparently attributed the victory to having more blacks. They have consistently fielded seven blacks starters since and this year is no exception as the four true Frenchmen who start for France stand out on the pitch. The French side represents Africa and not the traditional French nation. Happily, the side is beset with squabbling and will probably go home early this year.

Nigger penalty kick

England won their only World Cup in 1966 with an all-white side but is perhaps going the way of France. They started a bare majority of whites over blacks in their first round game. They may start 7 whites for the next game but the team is trending black. Perhaps if England is bounced from the tournament in the first round it will change things. The team disappointed in a first round draw versus the U.S.

Spain is the favorite to win the whole thing. Like the Italians, the Spanish are all white and have found great success lately. {snip}

Portugal also has an outside chance to win the whole tournament. Led by the great Cristiano Ronaldo, the squad starts 10 whites and one black.

The Greeks round out a solid Southern European contingent with an all-white side.

A few years ago, the Netherlands seemed on the verge of becoming another France. This year’s squad starts nine whites but has several black substitutes who will see playing time. {snip}

Denmark has 10 whites and one black who distinguished himself by accidentally hitting the ball into his own net and losing the first game for the Danes.

Switzerland starts two blacks and an Arab. But the team still retains an overall European identity and pulled a huge upset over Spain in the first round of games.


Since only white nations let in millions of people of different races, they are the only countries to be effected by demographic change. Asians, Africans (both Arab and black) and mestizos can be sure their national soccer teams will always represent them. If Eastern Europe can hold the line on immigration, they can also be confident that their teams will always reflect them as well.


Another lesson is that it is mainly blacks who are changing the face of the Western European soccer teams. There are many more Arabs and Middle Easterners in France and the Netherlands than blacks. Why are these significant minorities absent from the starting lineups? In England, there are many more Pakistanis, Indians, and Bangladeshis than blacks. Yet they are not represented on the national team. As noted, mestizos and Asians have yet to make an impact on the U.S. side.

A proper HBD response might be that blacks are better athletes than whites, and much better athletes than Arabs, Asians, and mestizos. But that is certainly not reflected in the World Cup results. All-black African sides are losers who have never come close to contending for the World Cup, though soccer is universally played throughout the Dark Continent. Some might say they need better training and coaching, but all black African teams are currently coached by whites. Even the Asian sides usually outplay the all-black nations. Though they enjoy home field advantage, the record of the all-black teams at this writing is a pathetic one win, four losses, and two draws. {snip}

On a more political note, I noted the typically fawning news coverage the media have given South Africa. They have not been too curious about the robberies of players and fans and the killings (one victim was Nelson Mandela’s great granddaughter, which kept him from the opening ceremonies) that have occurred around the event.

Several commentators have referred to the “the rainbow nation” of South Africa without wondering why the national team is all black. This is especially ironic as the ANC has mandated quotas for the sport of rugby to ensure some black representation in this white-dominated sport.

On the SAS blog someone wrote a story about a Transkei school that is much in demand by the local better-off blacks for its top academic results, as most of its teaching staff is white.

This reminded me of what Gedahlia Braun said in “Racism, Guilt, and Self-Deceit” – now an e-book available from AfricanCrisis. He claimed that ordinary blacks fear black rule because they know from their own experience that, even under apartheid, whenever some blacks got power – eg, as police – they become corrupt and arrogant, tyrants and bullies. He said you can test his theory by asking your domestic/gardener if they would prefer white teachers for their kids, white doctors, etc. And after they have answered “yes” to white everything, you then ask them “so why do you vote for a black government?”

After reading this I did the test on a black employee and, sure enough, she agreed on all points until, when it came to my suggestion that she should vote DA, she simply said “I won’t vote next time..!” So the idea of actually voting for a white party was a bridge too far – probably because she would have been in dread fear of discovery via the tokolosh in the polling booth.

So, due to rampant Kaffirmative Ekshun, Kaffirmative Procuration, EmployMUNT Equity, and BEE (Black EnrichMUNT by Extortion) we now have a new breed of blacks who have suddenly accumulated wealth beyond their wildest dreams and totally disproportionate to their skills or ability, or rather lack of. After white liberals (a fast disappearing species) these Kaffirmatised blacks are the biggest threat to SA whites, because they owe everything to the ANC and they know it, and they have the most to lose from a white resurgence.

These black (fake) diamonds resent whites remaining in SA because we are a daily reminder of their own inferiority and they are well aware that one of us, not them, should be driving their luxury car to their overpaid unearned executive position where they depend totally on subordinate whites to do all the real work.

Even when his victims are oblivious to his identity, a criminal feels very uncomfortable in their presence lest he be discovered. And they know that if they do not get rid of us, then one day the country will revert to its founders and rightful masters. But can the self-deluded liberal Mandelatopians see this coming?

Despite all of this, I am willing to wager good money on the following speculation…..

At least 90% of the black so-called “elite”, the black so-called “diamonds” prefer….
Their teachers to be white
Their doctors to be white
Their dentists to be white
Their surgeons to be white
Their computer technicians to be white
Their lawyers to be white
Their private detectives to be white
Their accountants to be white
Their airplane pilots to be white
Their helicopter pilots to be white
Their bankers and money-managers to be white
Their stock-brokers to be white
Their architects to be white
Their engineers to be white
Their most important employees to be white

From this list one thing stands out clearly –

wherever BRAINS and FINANCIAL TRUST, are crucially important….



for some reason they prefer a BLACK GOVERNMUNT..!

Are they admitting that a black government has no need of either BRAINS or TRUST..?

Am I the only one to have noticed this coontradiction?

Requiem for Rhodesia

Carlos W. Porter (b 1947)

In re-reading this brilliant essay one should be reminded that the author was only 26 years old at the time and had not been brought up in Africa. Considering that, it is truly remarkable that he could have been so unfashionably "illiberal" and so insightful into the African psyche.

As the essay is so long and not everyone has the time or inclination to read it all, I have selected some of his most perceptive remarks.....notice how horribly relevant to the awful situation that white South Africans find themselves in today.

Truly, this is a case of deja vu all over again..! (sic)

For those who want to read it all, here is the link again: http://www.cwporter.com/rhodesia.html

In Africa, European-owned farms, homes, and businesses are tolerated only
until the Africans can stand the chaos created by their confiscation. The owners
are given 24 hours to leave the country with two suitcases and a few dollars; or
they are given cash and expelled, but are prohibited by “exchange control
regulations” from taking the cash with them; or they are paid off with
government bonds which do not mature for 25 years and can be repudiated by any
succeeding government; or they are terrorized by thugs and are told by the
police, “If you don’t like it, why don’t you get out of the country!”

We (the Western nations) must help to kill the white Rhodesians (or S.Africans)
so as to butter up the blacks into allowing us to help exploit their property,
or the enormous mineral resources which the blacks were never aware of.

“The trouble is, a lot of the Europeans just got greedy”, said a woman in
Salisbury who ran from Zambia. “A lot of them just thought, oh, well, it won’t
happen to me. I knew someone who had a business in Zambia. He stayed. They
waited ten years. Then sure enough, when he had built it up into an established
business, they ‘Africanized’ it.
The terrorists are not freedom fighters. The purpose of terrorism is to discourage civilian cooperation with an established government. What is not safe is to be an unarmed African in a terrorist-infested zone. Such a person is likely to see his chief beaten to death, his wife and daughters raped, his sons kidnapped, his ears, lips and nose cut off . Since he fears being cut to pieces with a rusty bayonet more than he fears hanging or imprisonment at the hands of the authorities, the whites cannot win in a contest of terror and do not try.

Liberated" of her lips by Mugabe's "freedom fighters" (with full approval of your government)

Is failing to outnumber the blacks really a worse crime than murdering them all?
Or is it simply that the Rhodesians are white? Are we fighting a race war
against ourselves? Do we despise ourselves that much? Or is it simply that
we only care about money? “Oh God, let my neighbours be slaughtered one by
one, let my children live under Communism, but let me have my boat, my car,
my TV, my sauna bath, my swimming pool, my plane, but oh God, please don’t
make me think about tomorrow.”

Perhaps you have noticed that countries in which Africans hold all the land must
subsist largely off foreign aid. The Frelimo government of Mozambique
confiscated the homes and farms of a quarter million Portuguese, and then asked
the Rhodesians to feed their starving population! As soon as they got their
hands on a couple of trainloads of Rhodesian maize, they declared war on
Rhodesia! They were instantly given a healthy dose of foreign aid “assistance”
by Britain, whose socialist Prime Minister at that time owned five houses.

What would happen to the standard of living of American and the world if all the
best land were divided up into 1 acre parcels to be farmed by people who use no
machinery, who plant by poking holes in the ground with a stick, who use no
contour ploughing or erosion control, no artificial fertilizer, who quit work
for several years every time they get a good harvest, who use no crop rotation,
who erode and exhaust the land and then move?

The South African government spent 77 million Rand (100 million dollars) on farm
machinery for the Zulus. The next year everything was rusting and going back to
bush. And the Africans said, “We had a good harvest last year, why the hell
should we work this year?”

Rhodesia (SA) is criticized for spending more money on the education of white
children than black. What do you expect? The whites are outnumbered every year
simply by the number of black babies born. Either the whites must adopt an
African standard of culture and educate no one, or they must spend more of their
money on themselves. Half of the blacks in Rhodesia are less than fifteen years
old; yet the percentage of population in school is almost as high in Rhodesia as
it is in Britain.
If the blacks are not capable of educating themselves, what makes them capable
of running the country?
American and British policy towards Rhodesia is to support “majority rule”, even it that means minorities must be killed. Since this is in direct contradiction to the policies followed in their own countries, where minorities are worshipped, it simply means that if blacks are in the minority, they must be given privileges. If they are not in the minority, they must be given more privileges.

Perhaps those journalists to whom 10,000 miles’ distance has given a superior
understanding will explain what gives the African his right to wreck everything. Perhaps those who sell their homes at a loss rather than share a single American city with the blacks will explain whether they would prefer to farm in Zambia.

To say that one hopes for a peaceful solution to Rhodesia’s (or S.Africa's) racial problems while agitating for majority rule, is simply to utter a hypocritical threat. Rhodesia’s racial problems are created by foreign politicians. If they do not get what they want for nothing, they will resort to war.

The peaceful solution is/was to leave Rhodesia (SA) alone.

Would you abandon your home, your business, your savings, risk the lives of your family, to beg charity in foreign countries you have never seen, in climates you have never experienced, in middle age -- if you could escape? And for what? So that Africans can vote?

In the weeks following UDI, military take-overs and revolutions were taking place in Africa at the rate of one a week. Every single one of these dictatorships was recognized by the world within a week.

Look at the slaughters, look at the tortures, look at the ignorance. It is not enough to treat the Africans better than they have ever treated each other? No. It is not enough to treat the Africans as well as you can. No. In Rhodesia (SA) the rule is not “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” In Rhodesia (SA) the rule must be: “Allow others to do unto you things you w ould never dream of doing to them, just as long as they are black.”

Everything the Africans have has been given to them by the whites. It is to satisfy the ignorant envy of people too incompetent to supply themselves with the most basic of modern conveniences that Rhodesia (and SA) must be destroyed.

It is to erase the last reminders of the black mans technical and inventive inferiority that the whites must be killed with our help.

“Few of their houses are equipped with electricity…” says Time. One would think the blacks invented electricity, since it is theirs by right regardless of cost, possibility, or birth rates. The whites must be killed to allow the politicians to pretend that they did invent it.

To defy the world for independence with a handful of professional soldiers would at one time have been called “courageous”. Today that is a privilege reserved “For Non-Whites Only”.

Overweight "exploited" Africans line up to vote for majority rule, 1979, followed, in many cases, by emigration to Britain or flight to South Africa.The "majority" today would probably emigrate anywhere they could, now that they have their "rule". (Only 15 years later S.Africa went the same suicidal route to "democracy")

Britain, which only recently modified a law theoretically permitting any citizen of a Commonwealth Country (that is, about half the world) to enter Britain as a permanent resident regardless of money, skills, diseases, or knowledge of English, will take black Rhodesians, but not the white.

(White Rhodesians and South Africans) know that as long as white authority is maintained, they are safe; but the day it crumbles, their homes will be attacked, their wives will be raped, their children will be butchered. This is no fantasy; it has happened in a dozen UN member states. It is dismissed as fantasy by people who live in fantasies of their own.

Doodler, commenting on Irish Savant blog, said
“I know several black professionals, but when one gets to know them well, you begin to understand the chasm between us. For a rapid understanding, get one drunk - their true colours become readily apparent”.

Unlike many white South Africans who have to suffer the predations of the faeces species daily in their lives and workplaces, my face-to-face encounters with these parasitical creatures are happily rare, mostly car guards, building wekkas, the occasional over-promoted minor bureaucrat, and the like, or should I say, the dislike! And although it is good and advisable to try to keep it that way, I do have one big regret.

Purely for scientific purposes, and the furthering of my own "Bantu Education", I would dearly love to meet some of these fabulous (but almost certainly fake) black diamonds we keep hearing about, and discover what (stolen) mechanism makes them tick. But I have little contact with any AA-infested wekker-place nor any BEE dis-industry.

However this following story of a chance recent encounter confirms 100% what Doodler said above.

At a new CT wine bar we met a pleasant Dutch couple (30-ish) and a very well-groomed, smartly-dressed, very affable, black gentleman, a lawyer of some sort (at least in its own estimation), and a connoisseur of fine wines. Eureka! Maybe I had at last sighted that mythical African beast, a sophisticated black gentleman!

On being invited to join their table the smooth-talking SBG displayed his sophistication by launching into a discussion of fine red (nevertheless whitey, if you get my drift) wines. It soon became apparent that the woman, a tall busty blonde, had been er, making amends for apartheid by engaging in bestiality, er, close inter-personal activities with the SBG.

With the help of SBG’s sophisticated chat, we were all getting along so well that the Dutchman suggested we go to a nearby favourite bistro of his. Turned out the prices were somewhat more sophisticated than we were accustomed to but, never mind, our SBG had taken charge of the wine ordering department, and as the usual restaurant convention is that the person in charge of the wine is the one presented the bill, I thought all was fine.

We were enjoying our new friends and I, especially, was more than a little fascinated with the SBG. As he discoursed along in his amiable fashion, it crossed my mind that maybe our SBG was the ideal of the Holy Grail of liberal equalitarian fantasy.

Here was maybe a genuine black diamond - a cultured and civilized being from the noble but downtrodden race that had been so grievously traumatized by (in the measured words of Noble Prize Bishoprick Tutu) “The Unspeakable Horrors of Apartheid”, damningly indicted by the Orgasm of Useless Nations as “a Crime against Humanity” (sic) and, with nary a hint of histrionic hyperbole, a “Holocaust comparable with THE Holocaust” (words to that effect), by the incontestable authority of the faultlessly virtuous and saintly Lord Madiba, blessings be upon thee.

Unaware of my musings our SBG continued to display his leadership qualities, sophistication and, a hopefully fat wallet, by ordering 3 more expensive bottles of wine, on top of the 2 or 3 already consumed. But inevitably whitey’s stuff did its devilish work on the SBG - the fragile mask of sophistication dropped like a stone and the pent-up rage against whitey’s achievMUNTS erupted in a torrent of infantile resentMUNT pouring like vomit from the suited monkey.

Not wishing to assist the SBG in, what had by now become, his feverish quest for the “Holy Grail of Kaffir entitleMUNT” (the cherished 100% discount!!!), I somehow resisted the enormous temptation to chime in. All to no avail, as the arrival of the sophisticated bill was the cue for our (not-so) SBG to go shake hands with his best friend. Not having brought enough cash I paid the bill by card and the Dutchies gave me their cash.

When our now rather unsophisticated BG came tottering back, and I asked for his share, the wine fancier exclaimed “Eish Man, eh no marney..!”

Long story short, Blondie paid the missing share a couple of days later – almost certainly her money not the SBG´s who, she informed us, "she´d dropped". Sadly, we never saw our Dutch friends again, I suspect because I attempted to give them an unwelcome crash course in Bantu Education (ie, educating whitey about the Bantu).

A Mindless Mantra

The mindless regurgitation of the equalitarian mantra that blacks are inherently as capable as whites is puzzling when the evidence to the contrary is so enormously overwhelming. So one has to ask why, in public if not in private, virtually 100% of white people pay lip service to this absurdity?

Of course we all know the answer to this seemingly incomprehensible paradox. It is the FEAR of being labelled a racist, a fear as dread as that of being labelled a heretic in an earlier period when truth was also no defence against the dogma of religious correctness.

With the benefit of hindsight, we know how invidious that fear was both for science and society. And we rightly consider that period to have been an era of darkness and tyranny in which countless "heretics" suffered cruelly at the hands of the inquisitors whose mission then (now) was to "root out heresy (racism) in all its forms, wherever and whenever it appears".

"Racism" - a new "deadly sin" concocted by the neo-marxist left barely 80 years ago - is "heresy" re-made for new uses, a tool with which to intimidate, suppress, and ultimately liquidate those who dissent from the prevailing political orthodoxy - "the innate equality of all mankind".

So on the side of darkness and ignorance are "racists" who question or deny the holy scriptures of the god of equality.

Against them are the forces of light and goodness, so-called "liberals" who heartily promote freedom of expression provided they endorse what is being expressed. The holy warriors for the cause are the "anti-racists" latter-day inquisitors - self-righteous thugs on their mission to "root out racism in all its forms wherever and whenever it appears".

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

Will Whites Never Learn?


It would be nice if the entirety of this book is as good as this review but I suspect many of the more forthright sentiments are not quite those expressed in the book, but rather those of Jared Taylor, because I doubt it could have been published otherwise.

One paragraph towards the end (that JT strangely doesn’t dispute) that SAS readers will rightly call “utter liberal rubbish” is where Mandela is dutifully praised as being “among the tiny number who have not enriched themselves”. I wish the author had told us who the others are.

Now let me think of other leaders of African countries who did NOT get filthy rich. By far and away the least corrupt was Ian Douglas Smith who, at one time, even rode a bicycle to office. (If he was such a racist bastard how come a black bus or truck driver didn’t run him over?) Later he drove himself in an old Peugeot 404 without any security whatsover..! But we must also not forget the unfairly slandered Hendrik Verwoerd. PW Botha retired to a house in Wilderness but that’s not exactly Constantia or Cannes is it? Who else? Ah, I’ve just been told that whites were racist rulers and not “African leaders”.

Sorry..! Then all I can say is that the "tiniest number" one can get is ZERO..!

Review by Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, February 2006
The Fate of Africa: From the Hopes of Freedom to the Heart of DespairBy Martin MeredithPublic Affairs Press, 2005752 pp., $35.00

At close to 800 pages, The Fate of Africa is a huge book about a huge subject: the history of Africa since independence. Martin Meredith, who worked for years as a journalist on the continent and who has written eight other books about Africa, carries off this nearly impossible task with just the right combination of style and scholarship. At the same time, he sugarcoats nothing and spares no one. As any honest contemporary history of the continent must be, this is largely a story of greed, corruption, oppression and massacre. There may be no better and more up-to-date single-volume account.

The Fate of Africa covers North Africa as well, but this review will concentrate on the continent south of the Sahara. Although Mr. Meredith draws few broad conclusions, he offers a wealth of evidence for anyone who wishes to.

Untouched by Europe
As Mr. Meredith explains, even though in some cases colonization had lasted 200 years, most blacks were essentially untouched by Europe. The French ran their West African empire with only 385 white administrators, and the British were famous for equally thin-stretched, indirect rule. At the end of the Second World War, only the British even thought in terms of eventual independence for these untutored lands, and did not foresee it until the end of the 20th century. It was pressure from the United States, post-war exhaustion, and militant independence movements that forced a pace no one anticipated in 1945.

Whatever the timetable, because it was West Africa that had been in closest contact with Europe, it was thought best prepared for self-government. By 1920, for example, the Gold Coast (future Ghana) had 60 practicing black lawyers, whereas Kenya did not get its first lawyer until 1956. The first black deputy to the French National Assembly came from Senegal in West Africa in 1914. Leopold Senghor, another deputy from Senegal, helped draft France’s Fourth Republic constitution in 1945. His French was so good he was in charge of policing the constitution’s grammar.

Independence consequently did come first in West Africa, with Kwame Nkrumah as leader of Ghana. Nkrumah’s career set so many patterns for the new Africa that it is worth following in some detail. What began with great promise ended in tears, in a cycle so often repeated that Mr. Meredith has adopted it as the subtitle of his book.

Nkrumah had one of the most sudden rises to power of any politician in history—from prisoner to prime minister in a single day. Held in a Gold Coast prison for stirring up anti-British riots, his party managed to win 34 of 38 contested seats in a 1951 election. The British governor, Charles Arden-Clark, stiffened his upper lip, summoned his prisoner, and asked him to form a government.

Ghana went on to six years of democratic self-government under the close supervision of Arden-Clark. It seemed to be perfect training for sovereignty for the perfect candidate for independence. Ghana had a sound educational and economic infrastructure built by the British, excellent natural resources, and healthy foreign currency reserves due to cocoa exports.
(I recall they had 200 million sterling in reserves, more than Britain at the time)

The Cold War was raging, and both the United States and the Soviet Union were eager for new clients. Mr. Meredith writes that when independence came in 1957, there was world-wide hope and optimism on a scale now difficult to imagine. The six-day gala was a love-feast of goodwill and high expectations.

Once the British were gone, Nkrumah stamped out the opposition, built up a personality cult, squandered money on gold-plated projects, and ran the economy into the ground. He built the largest dry dock in Africa, which was almost never used. He set up a national airline and insisted it fly to politically fashionable places like Cairo and Moscow for which there was no commercial demand. He set up state-run corporations and state farms that only spread failure and corruption. He made it a crime for anyone to “show disrespect to the person and dignity of the Head of State.” Foreign businessmen learned that anyone with a glib tongue and a bright idea—the more grandiose the better—could get a fat government contract. The head of state himself signed deals.

Nkrumah had ambitions for the entire continent. In 1958 he hosted an All-African People’s Conference to promote anti-colonial agitation. Among his guests were many who later became heads of state: Julius Nyerere (Tanzania), Kenneth Kaunda (Zambia), Hastings Banda (Malawi), Patrice Lumumba (Congo), Amilcar Cabral (Guinea Bissau—assassinated shortly before independence), Holden Roberto (Angola), and Joshua Nkomo (never quite made it to the top in Zimbabwe). Nkrumah is still something of a saint for many Africans and American blacks because of his militant anti-imperialism. He dreamed of an Africa as mighty as the United States, and squandered millions on a huge complex of buildings he hoped would become the capital of a continent united under his leadership.

Nkrumah’s follies had predictable results. By 1965, just eight years after independence, what had been one of Africa’s most prosperous countries was bankrupt. Increasingly deluded and anti-white, Nkrumah blamed every failure on imperialists and neo-colonialists. He might have gone on wrecking Ghana had he not tried to clip the wings of the army. In 1966, while he was junketing in Peking, the generals took over and told him not to come home. School children who had been taught to chant “Nkrumah is our messiah,” now chanted “Nkrumah is not our messiah.”

The cashiered messiah found refuge in a clapped-out house in Guinea Conakry, where he received ever-dwindling bands of admirers, and spent his days drawing up impossible plans for Ghana. He was convinced that a popular movement would rise up to bring him back to power. By the time of his death in a Bucharest hospital in 1972, he was a pathetic figure.

Nkrumah was also typical of a surprising number of independence rulers who had been jailed or banished by the white authorities before taking power: Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia, Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Bourghiba of Tunisia, Banda of Malawi, Mohammed V of Morocco, and Patrice Lumumba of Congo (convicted of embezzlement, not independence activity).

Accra - Monumental Mausoleum of Kwame Nkrumah

In many respects, therefore, Nkrumah set the pattern for the continent: dictatorship, corruption, mismanagement, quirks bordering on madness, and involuntary departure from office. In particular, his example of one-man rule caught on almost everywhere. A few dictators explained that nation-building required unity of purpose, but most simply siezed power without explanation or apology. When someone once asked Habib Bourghiba of Tunisia what kind of political system his country had, he relied, “System? What system? I am the system.” Hastings Banda of Malawi once observed, “Everything is my business. Everything.” He also said, “Anything I say is law. Literally law.” In 1965 he went further: “If, to maintain the political stability and efficient administration, I have to detain ten thousand or one hundred thousand, I will do it.” Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, whose attempt at African socialism will be examined later, explained that political parties arose in the West because there were economic classes. In Africa, there were no classes, so only one party was necessary: his.

Also, like virtually the entire first-generation of independence leaders, Nkrumah had lived and studied in Europe or the United States. Men who went abroad were undoubtedly a better sort to begin with, and some experience of the West probably tempered their excesses, at least at first. In the next generation, semi-savages like Idi Amin (Uganda), Samuel Doe (Liberia), and Jean-Bedel Bokassa (Central African Republic) would shoot their way into presidential palaces, and go on to ever-more gruesome antics.

Unlike most African rulers, however, Nkrumah did not surround himself with toadies and mistresses, and seems to have been lonely and isolated. He decided, apparently on a whim, to marry, and asked Gamel Nasser of Egypt to find him a wife. Nasser did: an Egyptian girl who spoke only Arabic and a bit of French; Nkrumah understood neither language. He married her the same day he met her, and she gave him three children but little companionship. The only real friend Nkrumah seems to have had in power was a British woman, Erica Powell, whom he met when she was Governor Arden-Clark’s private secretary. He hired her away, with the governor’s blessing, and always said she was the only person who gave him unbiased advice. (He didn’t take the advice presumably?)

Central Africoon Emperor Bokassa

Nkrumah’s interest in a European woman did not lead to marriage, but for many rulers it did. Kenyatta, Bourghiba, and Banda had white wives, as did Leopold Senghor of Senegal and Seretse Khama of Botswana. Jean-Bedel Bokassa, who crowned himself “emperor,” had 17 wives, including a blonde Rumanian cabaret dancer, a German, and a Swede. (He kept wives in separate houses and left his office several times a day to call on them.)

(Emperor Bokassa had a good sense of humour – don’t know if its repeated in this book but I recall reading that he carried out public executions in a football stadium whilst the loudspeakers blasted out Mary Hopkins’ “Those were the days my friend, we thought they’d never end..”)

Finally, Nkrumah differed from other African rulers in another important way: He does not appear to have looted the treasury. He enjoyed the privileges of office—his secretary Powell wrote that he was “a-gog with excitement” at the prospect of meeting the Queen of England—but his own greatness was to come not from bank accounts but from a spectacular new Ghana.
All things considered, by African standards, Ghana’s transition to independence was a great success.

Elsewhere, there were failures, some so spectacular the West could not ignore the mess. Mr. Meredith’s account of the Congo’s almost immediate implosion is worth summarizing.
The Belgians have long been derided for failing to prepare the Congo for self-rule, and there is some truth to the accusation. In 1960, the country had only 30 university graduates and no black doctors, secondary school teachers, or army officers. However, the Belgians had built good basic infrastructure, and a broad base of elementary schools. They simply had not foreseen independence, but did not try to thwart it when times changed. After riots in 1959, they proposed a four-year transition to self-government. It was the Congolese who insisted on a quick handover.

Mr. Meredith points out that the independence ceremony of June 30, 1960 set the initial jarring note. King Baudouin of Belgium praised the early colonizing work of his great uncle, Leopold II—whose exactions were so ruthless that the Belgian government took over in 1908 what had been his private preserve—and talked down to the Congolese: “It is up to you now, gentlemen, to show that you are worthy of our confidence.” Patrice Lumumba, prime minister to be, replied with a rant against “exploitation,” “terrible suffering,” and “humiliating slavery that was imposed on us by force.” “We are no longer your monkeys,” he added. (not Belgium’s monkeys maybe, but still monkeys..!)

Just a few days later, black soldiers revolted against their white officers, and went on a rampage, beating and raping whites, singling out priests and nuns for particular abuse.

(Unless he says more in the book this is somewhat glossing over the reality – I heard from a friend who lived just over the border in Mufulira that pregnant white women had their babies cut out. And probably eaten too.! And what exactly happened to the white officers? Presumably the same fate as white SA officers when the day comes)

Thousands of whites fled the country—setting a model for what was to happen with dreary regularity elsewhere. The Belgians asked Lumumba for permission to use force to save whites. When Lumumba refused, Belgium acted unilaterally. The southwest province of Katanga seceded. The Congo was just two weeks old and already in chaos.

Lumumba called on the UN for help, which arrived in July, but what he most wanted UN soldiers to do was kick out the Belgians. He gave the UN two days; otherwise he would turn to the Soviets. Ralph Bunche, the black American head of the UN mission described Lumumba as “crazy” and acting “like a child.” (“half-devil, half-child” noted Kipling) Later that month, Lumumba visited the United States. Under-Secretary of state Douglas Dillon thought him “an irrational, almost psychotic personality.” (only “almost”???) Lumumba telephoned the Congo desk at the State Department and asked for a blonde companion. The CIA found someone to send over, but the White House quashed the tryst.

(Lumumba was before his time – he would have gone far in the ANC..!)

Belgian troops eventually left the Congo after they had evacuated whites, but Lumumba then insisted that the UN put down the Katanga rebellion. When another province, South Kasai, went into revolt, Lumumba really did call in the Soviets, who sent technical assistance. His attempt to put down the Kasai rebellion resulted in massacre and produced 250,000 refugees. By now, both Belgium and the US were convinced Lumumba was a menace, and both governments wanted him assassinated.

President of the Congo, Joseph Kasa-Vubu, dismissed Lumumba, who in turn dismissed Kasa-Vubu. In September, Joseph Mobutu, chief of staff of the army, ousted all politicians in a military coup. Lumumba stayed on in the prime minister’s residence in Leopoldville, guarded by an inner ring of UN troops to keep Mobutu’s men from arresting him. An outer ring of Mobutu’s soldiers made sure he did not escape. In pouring rain on the night of Nov. 27, Lumumba slipped out and headed for Stanleyville, where he had support, expecting to form a rival government. He might have reached Stanleyville, except that he kept stopping to harangue villagers. Mobutu’s men caught him and brought him back to Leopoldville, and his supporters in Stanleyville set up a government without him. That made a total of four competing governments, along with Mobutu’s, and secessionist regimes in Katanga and South Kasai.

Mobutu had Lumumba hauled before him and spat in his face. With the approval of the Belgians, he flew him off to the leader of the Katanga revolt, Moise Tshombe, who was certain to kill him. Tshombe helped torture him for hours, returning home, according to his butler, “covered in blood.” The next day, Belgian officers commanded a firing squad that executed Lumumba. The Belgians began to worry about bad press, and concocted the story that Lumumba escaped from detention and was killed by “patriotic” villagers. To cover their tracks, they cut up Lumumba’s body and dissolved it in sulfuric acid. Still, word of his murder prompted anti-Belgian demonstrations all over the world.

To this day, Lumumba is a hero to nutty leftists because he called in the Soviets, and to nutty blacks because he was rude to white people.

The UN eventually put down the Katanga rebellion in 1963, and by the time Joseph Mobutu consolidated power in 1965, he could almost be seen as the savior of his country.

Far less well known is the independence disaster of the tiny country of Equatorial Guinea, which was a Spanish colony until 1968. The Spanish had groomed Francisco Macias Nguema to be leader, but like so many whites, had no idea how much he hated them. One of his first acts was to stir up anti-white violence, and most of the country’s 7,000 Spaniards left their businesses and farms and were gone in the first six months.

Nguema was a real monster. When a director of statistics published figures that displeased him, Nguema had him cut into little pieces to “help him learn to count.” On at least two occasions, he ordered the killing of all known former lovers of a mistress. Whenever he wanted a new woman, he had her husband killed. Of his 12 original ministers, only two escaped murder.

Nguema ran out of money and started paying only soldiers and the police. (This would't happen today - the tiny country is swimming in oil..!) Every other part of the government shut down. Nguema closed all libraries, newspapers, and printing presses, and in 1974 emptied the country’s last school. He outlawed Christianity and turned churches into warehouses. To raise money, he started holding foreigners for ransom: $57,600 for a German woman, $40,000 for a Spaniard, $6,000 for a dead Soviet. He held hostage the last Claretine missionary, age 85, until he got a ransom. Nguema carried on for 11 years until a nephew deposed him in a 1979 coup. When it came time to execute Nguema, blacks were so afraid of his rumored supernatural powers they refused to pull the trigger. Moroccan soldiers had to be found for the firing squad.

The new man, Teodoro Obiang, is still in power, and the country still has no newspapers. A recent statement from an aide hints at the flavor of his regime: “He can decide to kill without anyone calling him to account and without going to hell because it is God himself, with whom he is in permanent contact, who gives him this strength.”

A few African leaders have sincerely tried to help their people. A curious and genuinely tragic figure, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania stole nothing, fought corruption, and worked tirelessly. The trouble was, his schemes were all wrongheaded. With his “Arusha Declaration” of February 1967, he set out to nationalize everything in sight, even private houses that were rented out. He wanted the whole country run on the principle of ujamaa or “familyhood,” which was supposed to capture the ancient spirit of “African socialism.”

His state corporations posted huge losses, but his greatest folly were collective farms, or ujamaa villages. Joining up was supposed to be voluntary, but eventually 11 million people were herded onto collectives in the largest mass movement of people in African history. When farmers fled back to their old fields, government workers burned their houses. (Imagine the international condemnation if this had happened under white rule..!)

Nyerere tolerated no dissent from socialism, and under his rule Tanzania went from being the largest African exporter of food to the largest importer. Always the darling of Western leftists, he got enough foreign aid to keep the country from starving. In 1985, after 23 years of familyhood, he gave up and left office. With a frankness unusual in politicians anywhere, he announced, “I failed. Let’s admit it.”

Nelson Mandela is another exceptional figure (???). He, too, is among the tiny number (zero?)who have not (???) enriched themselves, who genuinely tried to better their people, and who sought true racial reconciliation (???). With his successor, Thabo Mbeki, South Africans are discovering what black rule is really like. Those who follow are likely to be worse.

The Facts As He Finds Them
Mr. Meredith records the facts as he finds them, and the result is largely a litany of horrors. He gives us full accounts of the complex and sordid events surrounding the Hutu/Tutsi genocide of Rwanda, the wars of extermination in Sudan, the chaos and barbarity of “liberation” in Angola and Mozambique, and the downfall of white regimes in Rhodesia and South Africa.

Still, a few of Mr. Meredith’s observations stand out: In Kenya, a popular saying is “Why hire a lawyer when you can buy a judge?”

Omar Bongo of Gabon, who ran the country for 22 years and had a penchant for trying to seduce American Peace Corps volunteers, spent no less than $500 million on his presidential palace.

Nigeria spent $8 billion on a steel industry that never produced steel.

During the civil war in Chad in 1982, mobs sacked and burned both the national museum and the national archives.

President Siaka Stevens of Sierra Leone once spent two thirds of the country’s annual budget to host a meeting of the OAU.

When AIDS was discovered, Africans widely derided preventive measures as a racist plot to keep them from reproducing.

In 1973, Juvenal Habyarimana of Rwanda forced everyone, even babies, to join his political party.

And how is this, asks Mr. Meredith, for an absurdity: In the late 1980s, Cuban troops were protecting American-owned oil fields in Marxist Angola from attacks by US-supported guerillas.

Here are more vignettes from The Fate of Africa:
Abeid Karume became ruler of Zanzibar in 1964 before the merger with Tanganyika that produced Tanzania. One of his first acts was to supervise the slaughter and expulsion of Arabs and Asians. (one of the most memorable scenes in “Africa Addio”) Somewhat more unusually, he stopped all anti-malaria measures, claiming Africans were “malaria-proof.” There was a huge upsurge in malaria. An army officer shot Karume to death in 1972, not for political reasons but over a personal grudge.

In 1984, Haile Mariam Mengistu of Ethiopia spent $150 million on the 10th anniversary of his Marxist-Leninist “revolution” rather than do anything about a terrible famine ravaging his country. As he explained to an aide, “There was famine in Ethiopia for years before we took power—it is the way nature kept the balance.”

Liberia has had a particularly colorful history, but a few episodes stand out. Thomas Quiwonkpa led a revolt against tyrant Samuel Doe in 1985. When Doe’s men caught and killed him they publicly castrated him, cut him in pieces and ate him. Five years later, it was Doe’s turn. Prince Johnson ate at least one of his ears while he was still alive. After suitably torturing him, (needless to say this included castration..!) Johnson’s men paraded Doe’s mutilated body through the streets of Monrovia in a wheelbarrow. Doe had been a guest of Ronald Reagan at the White House in 1982.

In 1996, one of the groups fighting in the streets of Monrovia earned the nickname the Butt Naked Brigade, from its belief that fighting naked gave protection from bullets. In 1997, when Liberia held elections of a sort, warlord Charles Taylor announced there would be killing if he lost. He campaigned on the slogan “He killed my ma, he killed my pa, but I will vote for him”—and won.

Nigeria, with its oil revenue, should be one of the richest countries (if it were run by whites there can be no doubt it would have been THE richest..!) on the continent, but hundreds of billions of dollars have disappeared. In 2000 and 2001 in the eastern part of the country, crime was so bad and the police so corrupt that vigilantes took charge. A group known as the Bakassi Boys liked to herd criminals into a public square, where huge crowds watched while they hacked away with blunt machetes. If some of the condemned men were still alive, writhing on the ground, the boys would finish them off by tossing gasoline-doused tires on them and setting them on fire. Street crime disappeared, and the Bakassi Boys were hugely popular.

Mr. Meredith tells us that even the fabled revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara had an African mishap. In 1965, he went to north Katanga in the Congo to test his “detonator theory” that revolution could be kicked up with a little violence. It was a complete failure. He was supposed to be helping Laurent Kabila (who was still knocking about 30 years later and had a brief stint as Mobutu’s successor) but Guevara found him “addicted to drink and women.” “The basic feature of the People’s Liberation Army,” he wrote later, “was that it was a parasite army; it did not work, did not train, did not fight, and demanded provisions and labor from the population, sometimes with extreme harshness.” It was worthless as a fighting force: “Often it was the officers who took the lead in running away,” he wrote. Guevara gave up in disgust after seven months. (sounds a lot like the ANC's so-called liberation ummy - Umkhonto Ve Sizwe)

The French, who had been in Africa for a long time, seem to have understood that European forms of government are not natural to the continent. They kept bases and soldiers in Africa, and used them frequently to keep order. As one spokesman explained, it just wouldn’t do “for a few men carrying machine guns to be left free to seize a presidential palace at any time.”

Even with Europeans around to spoil the fun, African politics have been a gaudy business.
By the end of the 1980s, of the 150 heads of state the continent had boasted, only six had left office voluntarily, three of these after more than 20 years in power. Not one had been voted out of office.

That did not come until after the Cold War, when the US and the Soviets stopped propping up thugs for ideological reasons. Western donors began to pressure the Big Men to hold multi-party elections, and in 1991 Benin became the first country to see a ruler voted out. Democratic change hardly caught on. By 2000 only three others had been voted out.

When pressured to produce “democracy,” Africans showed considerable resourcefulness. In 1989, General Babangida of Nigeria set up two parties. His government wrote their constitutions, gave them their emblems, and most of their cash. One was to be, in the general’s words, “a little to the left” and the other was to be “a little to the right.” Three years later he got tired of them, and abolished both. Sani Abacha, also Nigerian, did even better. In the mid-1990s, under yet more pressure to democratize, he set up five political parties. Each duly chose him as its candidate for president.

The idea of elections makes no sense to the average African ruler. The whole purpose of government is to make him rich and powerful. (But black rule in South Africa would be an exception because we have Mandela…!) An election, of all things, is the stupidest reason to step down. For the huge majority of Africans, political activity is therefore palace politics; the closer you are to the Big Man, the better your chances for patronage, kickbacks, payoffs, and outright theft. (and now BEE which is essentially all those rolled into one package..!)

Mr. Meredith writes that almost without exception, government jobs mean legalized theft. Public service is an empty concept on a continent of what he calls “vampire governments,” where nepotism and corruption are as natural as breathing. (Vampires are far preferable – at least they are only active by night..! The ANC are 24/7looters..!)

Like all experts on Africa, Mr. Meredith notes that Botswana is the great exception. Independent in 1966 under Seretse Khama, it has little corruption and regularly-contested elections. Diamonds supply half of all government income, but the Big Men have kept hands off. By the end of the 1980s, careful use of diamond income had given the country a per capita GDP that hardly sounds like black Africa: $1,700. Like other experts, Mr. Meredith ventures no explanation as to how Botswana does it. (I don’t know Botswana but I dont think its the success it is often claimed to be, and if it is then I would venture it is probably due to all the white – mostly South African – expats helping to run the show)

Elsewhere, the picture is bleak. Since independence, the continent has swallowed more than $300 billion in Western aid with, as Mr. Meredith puts it, “little discernable result.” Corruption eats up an estimated one quarter of the continent’s gross domestic product. Although sub-Saharan Africa has ten percent of the world population, it has 70 percent of the AIDS cases, and accounts for only 1.3 percent of world GDP. By the end of the 1980s, per capita GDP was lower than in 1960, when many countries became independent.

Mr. Meredith generally refrains from drawing larger conclusions, (because to do so would of course be “racist”) but does note near the end of the book that “in reality, fifty years after the beginning of the independence era, Africa’s prospects are bleaker than ever before.” At the beginning he writes of “the extent to which African states have suffered so many of the same misfortunes.”

Why the mess? Mr. Meredith does not say. (if he had been as honest as a Jared Taylor, the book would never have been published) Perhaps the closest he comes is to note that tribalism has been a continuing curse. Ancient enemies sometimes buried the hatchet during the independence struggle but dug it up again once the common enemy was gone. The simplest conclusion is that Africans are simply not like Europeans and cannot build European-style societies. (but they are very good at destroying them..!)

Another conclusion Mr. Meredith could have drawn but did not is that white relations with post-independence Africa have been naïve and stupid. Interventions have been consistent failures. Whether it is Americans in Somalia or Liberia, the British in Sierra Leone, the French in Rwanda, the Soviets in Ethiopia or Somalia, no one gets what he expected. Even semi-Third-World people like the Cubans, North Koreans (in Zimbabwe) or Chinese (in Tanzania) got nothing for their efforts. When Europeans ruled Africans outright, without illusions that they were dealing with people like themselves, they had modest goals and achieved them. As soon as they started reading cultural anthropology, they lost their bearings.

Mr. Meredith writes that not until 1989 did the World Bank acknowledge that Africa’s problems were not all economic, that there were also leadership problems. (no mention of quality of people I suppose ) Men from 100 years earlier like Lord Lugard or Sir Garnet Wolseley would have been amazed by such stupidity.

Another remarkable aspect of recent African history is how easily one thug after another duped the white man. Both the United States and the Soviet Union funneled enormous sums to people who claimed to be either capitalist or communist but were really just thieves. (its the nature of the beast..!)

Samuel Doe was not the only White House or Kremlin guest to end up in a wheelbarrow.
Mengistu of Ethiopia, who let his people starve while he celebrated ten years of “revolution,” also played whites for fools. Once word got out about the famine, whites shipped in tons of food. Mengistu learned that it made no difference what he did with it—sell it on the black market, dole it out to friendly tribes, deny it to starving enemies—it kept coming. Gaafar Numeiri of the Sudan learned the same thing. The famine of 1984 did him a lot of good. White people showed up with boatloads of food he could use as a weapon. Whites fed his people while he bought guns and kept killing his enemies.

Perhaps saddest of all is that time and again—in Congo, Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa, the Guineas, Angola—whites who spent their lives in Africa and should have known better, underestimated the hatred of blacks.

Whites everywhere think blacks will love them if they treat them kindly.
They do not realize that kindness or fairness are not enough;
many blacks hate whites because they cannot be like whites.
No matter how they are treated, blacks will blame their failures on “racism.”

Some of the whites who fail to understand this end up in piles of bloody corpses. Others get out while they can. Two hundred thousand fled Mozambique, 300,000 left Angola, many thousands fled the Congo, Zimbabwe lost half its population immediately after black rule, and a steady flow of whites is now escaping South Africa. It was 40 years after independence, but thousands of French left the Ivory Coast when blacks started running through the streets shouting “Kill the whites.” There are pockets of friendliness and lulls in the process of dispossession, but
once blacks take power, they do not like to live with a minority whose success highlights their own failure.

Despite the rotting bodies and mountains of evidence, despite the chronicle of barbarism Mr. Meredith tells so well, whites have an inexhaustible capacity to deceive themselves about the motives and behavior of Africans.

Columnist Mary McGrory was fully exercising this capacity when she wrote in the Washington Post on May 12, 1994 about how wonderful black rule in South Africa was going to be:

“Newspaper readers will think they are reading scripture when they read dispatches from South Africa that cannot be read except through tears.”

People wrote rubbish almost as bad about Kwame Nkrumah. Whites will never understand Africa—or the blacks in their own countries—until they cease being capable of writing and publishing such nonsense. The Fate of Africa is an excellent corrective.

Simian Stupidity

In 1992 I had only been in SA for less than a year and was fairly ignorant about Black stupidity although I´d heard a few hilarious stories and jokes.

Having driven from the Cape to Joburg via Durban I had my car stolen on my very first day in Joburg. And, guess what else? In the boot was a recently purchsed case of 24×250ml dinkies of Nederberg Baronne (1984 “superior”) …! The bottles had screw caps, so predictably enough, the simians must have joy-ridden it around whilst pouring the stuff down their ugly necks because I eventually found the car a writeoff – front end completely stoved in – in a police stolen car compound (a vast field) in Soweto, the inside littered with empty broken wine bottles.

Shortly thereafter, still in Joburg, I bought a 1984 Honda Prelude (nice car), which I later took to one of those drive-through car wash places. I stepped out of the car to ask the ape attendant the routine, prices etc, and was about to get back into the car when the monkeyman seemed to indicate it wasn´t necessary for me to actually sit in the car during the wash.

Hmmmm I thought….anyway I fell for it..!

But there must have been something especially primordial about the look of this ape that made me somewhat doubt whether I was talking to a human (I have since discovered that I was not) or some other creature, so I carefully watched my car going through the process and noticed that exactly at the end of the rail where the car stops – or not, as in this case - the tarmac suddenly became a slope of about 10 degrees for about 15 metres or so, beyond which a troupe of simian wekkas were lazing around munching on fried Chicken and coke as is their fashion.

I looked around for my monkey but he must have disappeared back into his tree, so there I was helplessly wondering whether the car would come to a stop at the end of the process or would it career away driverless down the slope into the adjacent zoo and the waiting simians? Naturally enough it did the latter and I had to break into an Olympic dash and jump inside just before it wiped out the audience of Chicken Men who were meanwhile laughing uproariously at this stupid mlungu chasing alter a runaway car..!!

I went back to angrily berate the ape attendant, who hearing the commotion had climbed down from his tree, but all I got was SILENCE, and a blank hate-filled stare from BALEFUL EYES…!
