Are You Really African as You Claim?

By Sicebise Msengana










How African are you?

*Your parents won’t give you privacy because its their house

*Your mother hits you and hits you harder if you keep on crying

*When you have uncles and aunts younger than you

*You drink tea even when its blazing hot outside

*When your parents yell at you for hurting yourself

The Myth of African Deadbeat Fathers

Dr. Umar Johnson writes "You’ve heard the rumors, for they are everywhere, and although unproven, they still resonate as “facts” throughout much of American society. The untruth that Black men don’t want to care for their children has become a staple in American folklore. Even sadder is the fact that these rumors are not only postulated by the numerically dominant white majority of this country, but are actually created, maintained and reinforced by the Black community itself...."

500 Years of Resentment and Anger Against Africans

By Sicebise Msengana











I won't speak for  'Hebrew Israelites' and 'Black Indians', let their advocates speak for them. I will only speak for Africans -- both continental Africans and Diaspora. I understand that these pseudo-identities our people have picked up are coping mechanisms in a white society that bashes anything that looks 'African.' The poor arguments are in contradiction to scientific and archeological evidence. The purpose of these ideologies are to serve as a group therapy for those affected by slavery.

Modern African Traditional Clothing

The feelings of so-called civilisation are mixed. What may appear as 'civilisation' might be instincts.

"My  own  impression,  from  having  divided  my  life  between United  States  cities  and  New  Guinea  villages,  is  that  the  so-called  blessings of  civilization  are  mixed.  For  example,  compared  with  hunter-gatherers, citizens  of  modern  industrialized  states  enjoy  better  medical  care,  lower risk  of  death  by  homicide,  and  a  longer  life  span,  but  receive  much  less social  support  from  friendships  and  extended  families.  My  motive  for investigating  these  geographic  differences  in  human  societies

Religion Has Been a Stumbling Block of Progress

" when you do science, you have to put aside religion. You must exclude the divine from your theories about the world. Once you bring in the supernatural, you can explain anything, but none of your explanations can ever be confirmed, since you're using ideas that go beyond human sense"--Steven Weinberg

From its beginning religion has been a stumbling block against scientific developments. The claims made by religious fanatics are fallacious in many ways. Just because religious scientists did or still do scientific work has nothing to do with science. In fact, greatest scientists were and always irreligious and didn't bring science into religion (i.e. Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin).

No One Has been Held Responsible For Apartheid

The white man likes to dodges responsibility for his crimes against humanity like a psychopath -- absence of guilt or remorse, "I wasn't there" or "I didn't support apartheid." Yeah right. We all know that some whites were not born or were little at that time. But the vast majority of white people supported or were complicit with the system that offered them real benefits and privileges.

 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court  described apartheid as "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime." The heinous ideology that mimicked Nazism. Both ideologies – Apartheid and Nazism had common roots Christian religio-nationalism, which led to the creation of segregation of races. Along these lines and that of scientific racism, a racist white power structure came in being. Apartheid would’ve a great experiment if races were segregated but the

Let's Not Cry A River For Africans

By Sicebise Msengana












"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." --Mao

I will continue to say that there are no tears for people who fail to protect themselves. Therefore we should not cry for the African whose lands are in European hands because they're of hurting white people's feelings. Similarly, we should not wail and weep for our people in America who continue to march, sing and beg white people for basic human rights,  while being gunned down by predatory vicious cops.

White people: Join us or Leave us Alone

By Sicebise Msengana







White people say I’m a “hate teacher...racist.” Another white person said I should remove the “human rights activist” description on my online profile because I “hate” white people.  To a certain point, I’m a hate teacher. I hate racism and racists.  I don’t  love a heinous ideology of systematic oppression. An ideology where white people are rewarded  by white supremacy in it’s many forms for simply being white. I always say that white people should prove that they are against racism by their actions, not words. The same measure they put in their own freedoms should be the same measure they  put in ours.
Malcolm X argued “Now if you are with us, all I say is, make the same kind of contribution with us in our struggle for freedom that all white people have always made when they were struggling for their own freedom. You were struggling for your freedom in the Revolutionary War. Your own Patrick Henry said “liberty or death,” and George Washington got the cannons out, and all the rest of them that you taught me to worship as my heroes, they were fighters, they were warriors. But now when the time comes for our freedom, you want to reach back in the bag and grab somebody who’s nonviolent and peaceful and forgiving and long-suffering. I don’t go for that, no.”

Let me tell you a little historical fact. When white people arrived in my country, they took land by force and bullied our ancestors, the Nguni people, pushing them around. Using basic common sense my ancestors fought back against murdering child rapists for about 200 years. But the British colonists being militarily superior asserted their domination. The Xhosa put up a strong resistant against colonial terrorists. Jared Diamond wrote on his book, Guns, Germs, and Steel “the  Xhosa  at  the  Fish  River in  1702,  a  period  of  desperate  fighting  began.  Even  though  Europeans  by then  could  supply  troops  from  their  secure  base  at  the  Cape,  it  took  nine wars  and  175  years  for  their  armies,  advancing  at  an  average  rate  of  less than  one  mile  per  year,  to  subdue  the  Xhosa.” The fatal mistake they made was to trust the white man which attributed to their demise. Sadly even today we see our people falling for the same trick over and over again. White people cannot be trusted under any circumstances, unless they’re proven to be reliable.

With the increase in racist attacks against the African American community and neo-colonisation of Africa perpetuated by whites, it would be madness to have white folks as our allies in the struggle for basic human rights. Trust is earned. If the white community is to make a meaningful contribution in the anti-racist discourse, they should look for answers internally than externally.

Do white people do as mentioned above? No. In fact, they will infiltrate our communities and preach about “love” and “let go of the past”, as if “love” and “letting go” are substitutes for justice. Would white people  ask Jews to “love” and  “forget” the Holocaust , because it’s done and over? No. Because it still has a devastating impact on the Jewish community. Why would whites apply a new set of standards when it comes to non-whites, especially Africans?  White supremacy makes the world be a place where injustices will never decrease and where people will never be able to live together without hate.

 My message to the white community: civilise yourselves and focus on changing yourselves. Preach love and tolerance among other whites than in African community. Any well-meaning white person should invest their time and resources in educating, raising awareness and even considering joining the fight to alleviate the sufferings of their fellow human beings who are trapped in the evils of racism. But if this message is unbearable, then they should leave us alone. Because we can clearly see the false motivations of these “good” white missionaries who act as saviours in the guise of philanthropy. Africans can solve their problems.

Secularism: Scepticism Over The Supernatural Fantasies

By Sicebise Msengana












Predictions for the future:
In the years to come there will be a big evolution of religion. In the next 50-100 years, it won't be the religion we know like today. Just as there is a revolution in world religions. Take a look at Christianity, it is not what it used to be. Some of the teachings taught today would make the epistles and martyrs turn in their graves. For example, prosperity gospel that is used to cheat people of their hard earned money by promises of "divine blessings," faith healing and many other outlandish claims.

Years ago, I asked a person of faith, why doesn't God perform miracles as He used to do in ancient times. The answer was simple: "miracles have failed to convince people of God's love and grace.  Even if God performed miracles through his prophets, the emphasis today is put on people using faith to find and please God." A look at Islam, Take a look at Islam in its infancy. The religion was built on bloody conquests of the pagans. The Jihad or holy wars were fought in the name of Allah were means to spread the Muslim faith across the world.

But today one may find that there is a slight deviation from the original teachings of the Quran. Islam is becoming more tolerant and accepting particularly among the Western countries. Much of the Quran is interpreted metaphorically by many Islamic scholars. The same holds for other world religions. In the next 100 years, humanity for the first time may witness a form of religion that is secular in nature. We might see a form of world religion that incorporates all world religions in one religions system. A religious system that is tolerant to the homosexual community, the doctrine of Hell is metaphor of a real place. Scepticism over blind obedience.

Reason and logic over the supernatural and miracles. Sick people over depraved sinners. Today, scientists are trying to solve the problem of consciousness, if the findings reveal that the soul is not immortal. Then, Heaven and Hell, will be allegories of real places. Instead, of people going to suffer in hell for eternity. Hell could be a place that purifies sinners who were unable to attain sanctity in this lifetime. As science advances people won't need God to provide explanations for the difficult questions. Scientific advancements will fill most of the gaps. The fundamental doctrines of this secular religion is more of a "lifestyle religion." One can believe in God, or not, God won't hold you accountable for your lifestyle choices. A person can do whatever they want as long as they are good to their fellow human beings, tithe to church.
