News Alert: Don't Blame the Gold - Blame the Blacks!
- From: WWW.AfricanCrisis.Org
[In the news story below they blame Gold for keeping the war going. But
this is all wrong. If one were to go back into history you will see that
the whole concept that Africa will be peaceful under Black rule is really
a lot of nonsense. When Whites arrived here, Black Africa was split among
300 tribes who were constantly at war with each other. Now that the hand
of the White man has been removed, we are seeing Blacks returning to
their former state (with some minor differences).
People will say: "The White man came to Africa and took advantage of the
ignorant Blacks who then traded all their valuables for a few beads.
Ergo, nasty, cunning, horrible, devious White man."
What these people forget is WHY the Blacks and Whites interacted as they
did. Many times, the Blacks, in their incessant wars with each other then
took to trying to manipulate the Whites to side with them and to ask for
White help in conquering someone else. When Blacks weren't busy stealing
from each other, they tried it against the Whites. But the Whites didn't
take kindly to that - hence the various "Kaffir Wars". There are many
historical instances where the Blacks came and stole the cattle from the
Whites, and the White farmers banded together, got their muskets, climbed
on their horses and set off to retrieve their stolen cattle and punished
the Blacks. (Our forefathers ROCKED!! Wouldn't it be cool if we could
band together and hunt down and kill some of these Black criminal gangs
which our Police never catch?) Gradually, over a period of time, our
forefathers either totally pacified the Blacks through FORCE, or they
drove them back. Either way, they ended up in control of Africa bit by
The individual tribes of Africa were so busy stabbing each other in the
back, that often, the only people they ended up turning to, either out of
need or because they could trust their word, were the Whites! There are
many instances where Blacks hated each other so much, that the only
people they could trust in any way, were White people.
How the Whites conquered Africa was really because of the way Whites
build on what they have. The Blacks on the other hand, destroy what they
have and end up in really bad situations of their own creation. Then when
they are in a desperation which they created, then they run off and start
selling the Gold and the Ivory, etc. In certain instances, in South
Africa and Zimbabwe, Whites received large tracts of land as part of
historical signed deals between Whites and Blacks. Its the Blacks who
ended up screwing themselves because they can't live with each other.
I watch Blacks failing daily... one day I will tell the story in much
more detail. I have so many juicy stories to tell about Blacks and Whites
who were promoted, and how they worked, when the Whites were in charge,
or when a Black guy took over. Or, as recently happened, a Black guy
couldn't take the heat and he resigned, then a White junior who was
supposed to report to him, suddenly took over and suddenly, things were
being fixed at a staggering rate. Everyone then looked up and said: "Wow,
nothing happened during all the years when that Black guy ran the
department, but this White lad is doing more in a few weeks than the
Black guy did in years!"
Also I noticed, that many Blacks, when they suddenly find themselves in a
position of responsibility, and are now required to actually get a job
done - then immediately try to get Whites under their wing, because they
don't trust their own kind to get the job done. I am watching some
hillarious things daily... where I work. Its a hoot, and I will write
about it one day. Its too funny. I am finding it extremely instructive.
I'm definitely refining my ideas on why Blacks can't work together. In
fact, from observing them closely, I can now see what they can't see.
Do you remember Prof Parkinson and "Parkinson's Law" that you rise to
your level of incompetance? Blacks in Africa are way beyond their levels
of incompetance, and that's why Africa, including South Africa, are
doomed to fail ... but more about that on another day...
Whites defeated the Blacks in the past. It can be done again. In many
ways, with modern technology, it is actually easier than it was back
then. One could debate, who has benefitted the most from technology. I
believe, that if Whites stand together, they would do even better than in
But I think, this time, the Whites must not rule them, but get them out
of our lives for good. We must not control them. We must not be
responsible for their failures and their lives. I don't want to be
punished by God for their failures in life. I just want to be responsible
for myself. So I say, for our own sake, we should get the hell away from
them and leave them. They will be at war with each other, killing each
other for the next thousand years. Watch it. Its coming. Blacks are their
own worst enemies. There is no doubt about it in my mind. Jan]
Curse of gold has fuelled slaughter and rape in Congo
The lure of gold is fuelling major human rights atrocities in the
Democratic Republic of Congo, Human Rights Watch says in a report
Regional warlords and international companies are among those benefiting
from access to gold-rich areas while local people suffer ethnic
slaughter, torture and rape. "Rather than bringing prosperity to the
people of north-eastern Congo, gold has been a curse to those who have
the misfortune to live there," the New York-based group said.
Human Rights Watch alleges that co-operation between one leading gold
mining company, AngloGold Ashanti, and the murderous Nationalist and
Integrationist Front (FNI) has provided "meaningful financial aid and
logistical support" to the FNI leaders, a group responsible for some of
the bloodiest atrocities in the war-torn region.
The report into the investigation by Human Right Watch claims that
AngloGold's links with the FNI have helped the company access the gold
reserves around the rebel-dominated town of Mongbwalu.
It is here that the Hema and Lendu ethnic groups fought for control of
the mines for more than two years, costing the lives of at least two
The local population, still in the grips of conflict, is at the mercy of
the armed militia, the report says.
"We are cursed because of our gold," one miner told HRW. "All we do is
suffer. There is no benefit to us."
AngloGold Ashanti denies there is a "working or other relationship with
the FNI" but admits it has on one occasion yielded to militia extortion
In a statement, the company yesterday said this action was against its
principles: "That there was a breach of this principle in this instance,
in that company employees yielded to the militia group FNI's act of
extortion is regretted," it said. "As soon as it came to our attention,
we publicly acknowledged it, condemned it and said it would not happen
"As a company committed to corporate social responsibility, AngloGold
Ashanti should have waited until it could work in Mongbwalu without
having to interact with abusive warlords,"HRW Congo researcher, Anneke
Van Woudenberg, wrote in the report. "Congo desperately needs business
investment to help rebuild the country, but such business engagement must
not provide any support to armed groups responsible for crimes against
The area around Mongbwalu, 30 miles north-west of Bunia, capital of the
Ituri province, is still firmly in the power of the FNI and there is
little indication the situation will change soon.
Since war ended in 2003, the Kinshasa government has failed to establish
control of the province where self-styled president of the FNI, Floribert
Njabu, is fully aware of his own power. "The government is never going to
come to Mongbwalu," he told HRW. "I am the one who gave [AngloGold]
Ashanti permission to come. I am the boss of Mongbwalu. If I want to
chase them away, I will."
HRW tracked millions of pounds worth of "tainted" gold which was
funnelled out of the country with the aid of local militia during the
war, most of it ending up in Switzerland.
The report reveals how a Swiss company, Metalor Technologies, bought the
gold from Uganda. In a statement to Human Rights Watch, the company said
it had believed the gold "was of legal origin". It has vowed to never
purchase gold from Uganda again, a move HRW applauds.
