Root of all the problems in Africa

29 May 2014, 13:01 Onyeji Dominic

"The stories you read in Bible are reflections of what have happened in the past and are still happening in reality," said Danials Joniuor Awuah. Here we are! This is exactly what I have wanted to hear. I mean he has said it all. It means that Bible has been confirmed here as a bunch of fables or mere story book. That is it.

Let me just add that it is very clear in many ways, and we know it that the white wrote Bible and Koran in order to brainwash the black in jungle. They have never mean well for the black. I have always said it but people do not seem to take it from me.

What I know is that white men are roots of all economic, religious and social problems in Africa. They have been the brains behind our down fall and misfortunes. Bible said it to us in wisdom but majority of us seem to be too foolish and myopic. They know the story about Esau and Jacob but they do not know the intricacy of the massage to mankind. I had always wanted us (the black) to be frank to ourselves in life.

Wise ones know that the black were described as Esau in Bible. We read it that Esau was black and hairy like animal. That was why he lived his life as haunter and farmer. His twice brother was white and cunning. That was why he deceived, cheated and deprived Esau of his birth-right. I do not need to interpret it because people are taken as fools when they demand for interpretation of parables. What I know is that Jacob means deceit of the white to the black. Simple!
