How Europe underdeveloped Africa

Amilcar Cabral writing about ignorant white people who were appointed as supervisors, writes thus

I was an agronomist working under a European who everybody knew was one of the biggest idiots in Guinea; I could have taught him his job with my eyes shut but he was the boss; this is something which counts a lot, this is the confrontation which really matters.

  1. White people? Ignorant? Naw! White folks are supreme! Well, genetically speaking, at least. Just ask any white supremacist; they’ll tell ya’. Yep. Genetically superior. No question.

    *The above comment has been read over by members of the US Supreme Court and determined to be potentially triggering to some more sensitive individuals. This may have been done intentionally, but, as of this writing, evidence to prove this is shaky at best.

    Have a nice day, and, please, don’t run with scissors. You could poke your eye out if you trip and fall.

  2. There is one thing in which many white people truly are superior – the superiority of their belief that they are genetically superior.

    I have been in the US military. Trust me this is a common problem. I remember once when I was assigned to a new post, in charge of the communications for the deputy commander in chief of Europe. Everything was fine for about a week. I checked everything and was involved in all aspects of the operation. After the first week when my shift reported for duty I delegated the check of our secure codes to a junior in rank ,something I had been doing to get use to the new system. He bucked. He did not want to do it. I had had this happen when transferred into a unit with more rank, so I quietly insisted. The person did as I requested. Later when I asked why he was so upset it turned out they had planed a trap for me by screwing up the security stuff we had to check each shift, and hoped I wouldn’t catch it, but then had to correct every thing they messed up. It was not me they disliked but the fact someone had been brought in over them. After we became the best of friends. Hugs

    White people are genetically superior to other races? They are taught that, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is truth. Hitler thought the same thing about “his” type of white people and look at what happened to him. Naked hugs!
