A bubu will preach African unity in one breath but when push comes to shove will be the first to call you an idiot for trusting an African. Racism is merely something to point their fingers at to disguise tribalism. Their concept of unity is based on others exploiting this fragmentation as opposed to a natural sense of an African collective.

It would appear even when intentions are sincere and honourable progress and unity still fails. As long as ones ambitions are rooted in inferiority which can also include the quest for equality then the associated negative energy this has is more likely to prevail than not.

In one hand you have the uneducated low-to-no ambition blacks who in denial associate academic progress and careers as being white. In the other you have the professionals who actually think they are white. So education and ambition aside the inferority complex runs from head to toe in the African community. Many on both sides of the fence of progress see bedding or marrying into white as a status symbol. Accusations of racism for many is merely to disguise or deny inferiority.

Ironic that we class children as juveniles who have no right to vote, drink, smoke or have sex yet if they're killing each other people start talking about personal accountability. If children fail its the generation before them who sold them out. Adults have accountability. Adult Africans need to stop harking on about racism and use their brains to unite.

The backwardness is truly shocking when you see it. There's no base, no foundation, no structure, no infrastructure but everyone's wicked ina bed. I see why many see attaining a babylon education as being the next step in the story of African evolution.

Its like black people don't learn they mimic. Righteous people do not need to point their fingers at other to define who they are. I still meet slaves hiding their denial for Africa behind the slogan 'They don't want us back'. Equally you have the bubu's who don't unite citing other Africans who don't. Lets be clear. You are not African by the consent of other Africans and likewise a slave/bubu who is not defending African unity does not define whether you do or you don't. Lose the inferiority!

Africans racist against Africans. Call it by its name: Tribalism. You might think you're uniting for collective structure and infrastructure only to find you've merely bailed out a slave/bubu class African from their weed wine and woman survival predicament. They can't see past their next plate of crumbs. Inferiority means life for a slave/bubu doesn't get any bigger than outdoing or looking better than another African as this is the closest they'll get to feeling equal to whites.

Africans need to lose the inferiority complex. For a people of colour their reference point seems to be white. Tell the common gro about prayer they will assume its bowing to blonde hair and blues eyes. Why is it not natural to assume its an afrocentric form of spiritual meditation. Exactly the same when it comes to marriage. Bereft of any cultural integrity blacks will continue to disrespect themselves believing they can hide behind religion and Walt Disney.

Africans need unity. No other race sits around worrying about what white people think. This perception of African tribalism where they continually sell each other out for crumbs will always be the achilles heel. The black community is a minefield of hustling ho's and juggling gigolo's. The slave/bubu class African male is incapable of unity. He doesn't have the discipline. He wants to be free to poke random pu$$y and will always be initimidated by the white man he's trying to be.
