Marks of retardation in downhill

12 June 2013, 09:31 Onyeji Dominic Uzoechi

Truth remains that we, Africans, are meant to beat the white in everything. Heaven and earth know that God blessed us more than them. The only thing is knowledge through long term commitments in formal learning process.

Come to think of it. White men can never do without Africa for so many reasons. Almost all mineral resources they need are fetched in Africa. The only thing they have is wisdom gotten through knowledge which we, Africans, are neglecting.

White men are deeply given to sound education while Africans are deeply given to negligence and excesses. They come to Africa with science and technology which they acquire through serious commitments to learning.

Their lucrative machines, plants and companies are planted everywhere in Africa like parasites, sucking our blood, labour, man power, wealth, mineral and human resources.

The white are everywhere in Africa using science and technology to siphon our wealth, and we are here just watching them like morons, thinking that they are spirits and magicians.

Who said that Africans cannot be more knowledgeable and technical than the white? Who said that we cannot know what they know? Our major problem is downright negligence; we don't take things like education and wisdom serious. That is why the white are still using Africans like slaves.
