 "If we must stop the external imperialists –America and Europe from stealing African natural resources, we must be ready to stop internal imperialists from doing so as well. As Nigerians, it is time we say final no to internal imperialists if we must stop external imperialists. True Federalism or outright division of Nigeria will reduce external imperialists influence on our wellbeing" -

AFRICANS:
"Africans are neither angels nor demons; they posses and exercise the potentialities of both angels and demons. They can be as kind as the Germans, but they can be as murderous as the Germans; Africans can be as generous as the Americans, but they can be as greedy as the Americans; they can be as friendly as the Russians, but they can be as cruel as the Russians; they can be as honest as the English, but they can also be as equally hypocritical. In their human nature, Africans are Germans, Swiss, Chinese, Indians or English-...."

(1) You discover to recover. Awareness, the proper information,facts of events and history are necessary to get accurate and lasting headway. Of course, no one should be blamed for African's self centereness, short sightedness and high egos (not perculiar as a race). Sincerely lots of questions have been asked about Nigeria and the African's being, philosophy and psychological make up , why they are where and how they are .
(2) What happened to Africa is also compared with others in Asia and South Americans. The African situation I think is deeper than just comparing with what happened in those places and the African's self denier not making thing easy at all. There is no way any messiah in the name of GOOD and VISIONARY LEADERSHIP (Africans dreaming about with an urgly mind of looking at self, compared with the white wash mentalities that dominate the African psyche) without putting the wrongs RIGHT. for example, LANGUAGE : the chinese speaks their, the indian, even the jews have theirs. CULTURE, RELIGION, EDUCATION, POLITICAL ADMINISTRATION, TERRITORIAL DEMACATIONS, go figure. you find those every developed nations have their own defined fomular unlike Africans that still believing the they inferior, thinkless, etc. Just take a look at Nigeria (WAZOBIA) Coutry for instance: You really think Nigeria can attained major development as to world powers as it is right now? why are the Nigerian body of knowledge, economy and political administration/system depending on the OUTSIDER? Why ? Nigerians don't even know themselves, a house mounted in confusion and cemented with lies? Lastly, I believe both the past, present and future need critical examination and ameliorations to keep the balance determining a true viable state anywhere in the black world. AFRICA. Bro, so much is wrong with Nigeria and Nigerians (internally and externally) that can not make them grow or develop to world powers and the very first step the the will to re-examine and restructure its foundation for a new begining . AFRICA NEED A NEW DIRRECTION FOR SELF ACTUALIZATION to be able to do what others are doing. not continue in lies and confusion. thank you

"WE ARE REALLY DEEP INSIDE THIS BLAME GAME.THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT GRAND CONSPIRACY THAT APPEALS TO OUR PSYCHE AND MAKES US FEEL GOOD OVER OUR DEPLORABLE CONDITION AFTER ALL THE BADGUY'S YOKE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON OUR NECK.IF THE JEWS HAD BOUG
HT INTO THIS LINE OF ARGUMENT,THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SOME GLOBAL RESCUE PACKAGE AFTERALL DIDN'T THE WORLD WATCH AS NATIONAL SOCIALISM OBLITERATED A THIRD OF GLOBAL JEWRY? BUT THANK GOD THEY DIDN'T WAIT,THANK GOD THEY QUICKLY PUT THE HOLOCAUST BEHIND THEM.IS THERE A PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUFFERED MORE STEROTYPING AND PERSECUTION THAN THE JEWS? HARDLY.YET THEY ROSE FROM THE ASHES OF THAT TERRIBLE POGROM TO WORLD DOMINANCE.THEY NOW CONTROL THE FORCES THAT CONTROL THE WORLD.THE ATROCITIES THAT THE JAPANESE COMMITTED IN CHINA ESPECIALLY IN MANCHURIA WAS ENOUGH TO TURN THE CHINESE INTO BEGGARS FOR SOME SORT OF REPARATION.THANK GOD THEY TOOK THEIR DESTINIES INTO THEIR OWN HANDS AND DELIVERED FOR THEMSELVES A SUSTAINED PROGRESSIVE LEADERSHIP.IT CAN'T BE OVERSTRESSED THAT WE ARE OUR PROBLEM,LEADERSHIP IS THE PROBLEM AND THE SOLUTION MUST BEGIN FROM TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRESENT MIASMA WE FIND OURSELVES,DOING THE RIGHT THING,USING PUBLIC FUNDS FOR PUBLIC GOOD.A NATION THAT EARNS 282MILLION DOLLARS EVERYDAY FROM CRUDE OIL HAS NO RIGHT TO BLAME EVENTS OF 500YRS AGO FOR FAILURE TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR HER CHILDREN.SHE MUST NOT WAIT FOR SOME 'GRAND RESCUE PLAN' FROM PEOPLE SHE THINKS OWE HER SOMETHING.I AM YET TO KNOW OF ANY NATION OR REGION WHERE THE SO-CALLED 'GRAND PLAN' HAS BROUGHT PROSPERITY.THERE WAS NOTHING GRAND ABOUT THE MARSHALL PLAN.ITS 13BILLION DOLLARS WASN'T EVEN UP TO 5% OF WHAT A NON MAJOR PLAYER LIKE ITALY LOST DURING THE WAR,AND LIKE I SAID BEFORE EUROPE WAS ALREADY TECHNOLOGICALLY AND INDUSTRALLY ESTABLISHED.THE CLOSEST I GOT TO A KIND OF GRAND PLAN WAS FDR'S 'NEW DEAL' MEANT TO PULL AMERICA OUT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION.AGAIN,THERE WAS NOTHING GRAND OR NOVEL ABOUT THIS PLAN;IT WAS A HODGEPODGE OF SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND EVEN PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFORTS TO ENCOURAGE AMERICANS TO START CREATING WEALTH BY DOING SOMETHING.OF COURSE IT DIDN'T END THE DEPRESSION,IT WAS THE WAR THAT ENDED THE DEPRESSION IN THE U.S. AS RE ARMAMENT HAS DONE IN GERMANY SOME 13YRS BEFORE.NO ONE DENIES THAT AFRICA LIKE EVERY OTHER SUBJUGATED AND COLONIZED PEOPLE LOST MUCH DURING THE PERIOD WHERE THEIR RESOURCES WERE EXPROPRIATED TO BUILD EUROPEAN ECONOMIES BUT HANGING ON TO THAT PAST AS AN EXCUSE FOR OUR CONTINUED FAILURE TO HARNESS OUR ENORMOUS RESOURCES AND WHIP THE ENGINES OF GOVERNANCE TO YIELD TO US AND OUR CHILDREN THE GOOD THAT GOD AND NATURE-GOD ORDAIN,IS MOST REGRETABLE." -- Osahon Daniels Osazuwa

"Now you understand why they didn't think twice when they sat down at the Berlin Conference of 1884-85:
Sophie Oyewole, edited edition:
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 - 1778): "The black people are unable to think in any reflexive manner. Their engagement in arts is, therefore, a thoughtless activity which is the ant-thesis of the intellect."
Thomas Jefferson, (1743 - 1826), The third president of the United States who coursed the phrase "All men are created equal" wrote in his, one and only published book, Notes on Virginia that 'it would be impossible for a black person to understand the mathematical formula in Euclid's famous book The Elements. This, to Jefferson is proof of the intellectual inferiority of black people. Comte Joseph-Arthur Gobineau (1816- 1882): "Africans are people who lack the sophisticated linguistic skills, the scientific and political faculties of the European and are best suited to dancing, dressing up and singing."
Allier: "The Negro is content with vaguer ideas, he (does not) allow himself to be troubled by the flagrant contradictions, which they contain. These Negroes have no theories; they have not even conviction, only habits and tradition." (1929)
Henry Maurier: "Do we have an African Philosophy? The answer must be: No! Not yet." (in Wright, 1984:25).
The various philosophical perspectives of the Enlightenment and Modern scientific discoveries have not changed the hypothesis that the Africa is a negation of all-cogent human experiences and expressions." - Reggie Akpata

The viewpoint that “Africans” enslaved “Africans” is obfuscating if not troubling. The deployment of “African” in African history tends to coalesce into obscurantist constructions of identities that allow scholars, for instance, to subtly call into question the humanity of “all” Africans. Whenever Asante rulers sold non-Asantes into slavery, they did not construct it in terms of Africans selling fellow Africans. They saw the victims for what they were, for instance, as Akuapems, without categorizing them as fellow Africans. Equally, when Christian Scandinavians and Russians sold war captives to the Islamic people of the Abbasid Empire, they didn’t think that they were placing fellow Europeans into slavery. This lazy categorizing homogenizes Africans and has become a part of the methodology of African history; not surprisingly, the Western media’s cottage industry on Africa has tapped into it to frame Africans in inchoate generalities allowing the media to describe local crisis in one African state as “African” problem.
