The Stories That Europe Tells Itself About Its Colonial History

by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“She said once she was shocked that her son while being taught Belgian history, was taught nothing about Congo. She said “They teach my son in school that he must help the poor Africans, but they don’t teach him about what Belgium did in Congo.” Of course, all countries are evasive about the past for which they feel ashamed, but I was shocked by what seemed to me not evasiveness but an erasure of history

If her son doesn’t learn that the modern Congo State began a hundred years ago as the personal property of a Belgian king, who was desperate to get wealthy from ivory and rubber, if her son doesn’t learn that the hands of Congolese people were chopped off for not producing enough resources to meet the king’s greed, if her son doesn’t learn that the Belgian government later led Congo with a deliberate emphasis on not producing an educated class, so that Congolese could become clerks and mechanics but couldn’t go to university, if her son doesn’t learn that more recently, even though it was the Americans who installed the Mobutu dictatorship, Belgium was a major force behind the scenes propping him up, if this young Belgian boy, knows nothing about these incidents, then, at some point, they would perhaps no longer have happened because the past after all is the past because we collectively acknowledged that it is so. 

This young Belgian boy would grow up to see Africa only as a place that requires his aid, his help, his charity with no complications for him. A place that can help him show how compassionate he can be, and most of all, a place whose present has no connection to Europe. 

It is not that Europe has denied its colonial history. Instead, Europe has developed a way of telling the story of its colonial history that ultimately seeks to erase that history”

Wow, you Ladies and gents must really love white people. I mean, dedicating a whole page to our race? That's such an honor. Thank you. XOXO

did you give yourself a pat on the back for this one?

You gave yourself a high five for sending this didn’t you. OMG so clever

This is your blog

that shit says “A safe place for Europeans/ American-Europeans/ Canadian-Europeans/ Australlian-Europeans/ ECT…to find joy and beauty in their race.”

White people need a safe space now?

Pale faces need a safe space? Was the entire globe not safe enough for you so you decided to make a blog with the same white people we all open magazines and see

with the same mayo wonder bread sandwiches we see on tv, in movies, on billboards, defining beauty everywhere we go, 

But that wasn’t assuring enough for you so you made a blog because white people already don’t have enough

Tell me why your blog look like i google searched crackers?

Why your blog look like i google searched white bread?

You better shut your dumb ass the fuck up because I’m the last one for you to try to get smart on, okay?

Queen Nina

"Ain’t Got No, I Got Life" by Nina Simone

I ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, ain’t got no class
Ain’t got no skirts, ain’t got no sweater
Ain’t got no perfume, ain’t got no beer
Ain’t got no man

Ain’t got no mother, ain’t got no culture
Ain’t got no friends, ain’t got no schooling
Ain’t got no love, ain’t got no name
Ain’t got no ticket, ain’t got no token
Ain’t got no God

Then what have I got
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what have I got
Nobody can take away

Got my hair, got my head
Got my brains, got my ears
Got my eyes, got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile

I got my tongue, got my chin
Got my neck, got my boobies
Got my heart, got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, got my hands
Got my fingers, got my legs
Got my feet, got my toes
Got my liver, got my blood

I’ve got life
I’ve got my freedom
I’ve got life

I’ve got life
And I’m gonna keep it
I’ve got life
And nobody’s gonna take it away

#STIXXALBUMS OF THE DAY: lets get started shall we? 

Zhane - "Pronounced Jah-Nay"
CLICK TO DOWNLOAD
TRACKLIST: 
1. Hey Mr. D.J.2. Intro (Interlude)3. Vibe4. Sending My Love5. Sweet Taste Of Love6. Changes7. You’re Sorry Now8. Love Me Today9. Off My Mind10. La, La, La11. Groove Thang12. For A Reason13. Hey Mr D.J. (Remix)

STIXX’S REVIEW: If you love singers (vocalist) like D’Angelo, Maxwell, Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu, you’ll more than likely appreciate the grooves of this duo. Neo-soul before it was the “In” thing to be, these two stepped on the scene with their smash hit “Hey Mr. DJ” ..followed by their collaboration with Busta Rhymes “Its A Party” (not on the album). This 90’s magic is perfect for this time of night, and goes best with a glass of wine (color optional). 
STIXX’S FAV SONGS: "Sending My Love" "Vibe" "Hey Mr. DJ" "For A Reason" "Your Sorry Now" 

Sending My Love…. the harmonies. I still say this was the birth of Neo-soul music.

Happy Birthday Dr. Huey P. Newton (Co-founder of the Black Panther Party); because they don’t want us to know he had a Ph.D in Social Science. They want us to think he was just some ignorant, trouble-making thug.
