Who or what did we celebrate in 2018 in Africa. Here are 10 people, events and things, which marked the year 2018 (if there are some other you would like to share, please send them in): 1. Abiy Ahmed Ali became prime minister of Ethiopia this year, and brought in a wave of new measures. He is […]
Senegal, like many other African countries, would like the restitution of all the looted African arts taken by Europeans and still hosted in European museums.
10. Not sure whether to applaud this or not: Major museums across Europe have agreed to loan important artifacts back to Nigeria for a new museum the country plans to open in 2021 (Europe’s Largest Museums to “Loan” Looted Benin (Nigerian) Artifacts back to Nigeria). How someone can loan you something they stole from you is beyond me! They should just return it!
Uh…descendants of slaves stolen from Africa, the Africans want you to know that they are pissed off only because ARTIFACTS that were stolen from them by the Europeans should be returned to them. Your Black ass??!!! Not so fast! You see, artifacts are much more valuable to those who let our ancestors be taken from their native land.
How many African countries or nations have yelled and screamed that they want the Europeans to return Africa’s stolen people? None! And they never will because you see, Africans do not view us as true Africans even as you don dashikis and African head wraps and ‘jump the broom’ and recognize Kwanzaa and other stupid shit of the like. Those ‘people’ over there don’t give a shit for those of us who are the descendants of people who were stolen by the Europeans and deposited on these shores. When will you understand that Africa doesn’t give a shit for you? They don’t claim you! They never have.
You are somewhere handing money to Ancestrydotcom and some 23andmeDNA kit shit so that you can find out where your so-called African ancestors originated from so that you can do what? Go over there and get your feelings hurt? Unless you are part of a delegation that is bringing back a stolen artifact, those people ain’t thinking about your ass.
Those of us who are descendants of slaves are on our own and we had better recognize that fact, deal with it and move the hell on. We don’t have anything in common with those Africans and whatever DNA of theirs is in our makeup is so minuscule thanks to the rape our ancestors had to endure at the hands of slave traders and plantation owners and their overseers, that it makes no sense for us to consider ourselves to be, African.
We don’t have a ‘motherland’. We are a people without a country. Deal with that. No one has come to our rescue. Not Africa, not this shithole called Amerikkka and nothing will. It is up to us to do for us and the sooner we recognize this, the better off we will be in understanding that we need each other because we are all we have!
You are not a valuable artifact and because of that, Africa doesn’t give a shit for you or me! That’s reality! Ask yourself this, “What has Africa done for you lately?” I know what it’s done for me. Not a goddamn thing! I don’t expect it ever will because I face reality and I deal with it.
The sentence below is taken from the article. Re-read it and get a clue!
“How someone can loan you something they stole from you is beyond me! They should just return it!”
So as you can see, they want the return of ‘it’, an artifact. You? That would be a resounding, “NO!” Think about that!
