“Turncoats will not dine with us!” — Onitaset Kumat
A tragedy of our condition is how our own people embrace turncoats. The African Blood Siblings Community Center is the only bastion of ethics which allows us to distinguish turncoats and educates us on how to truly address them. Build one in your area. In the mean time, read this story of Prime Access. Note, too many of us are not acting. Act.
Of Prime Access — The Ethics of Africans Marketing For Europeans
By Onitaset Kumat
As I try to emphasize, we Africans need an ethical philosophy for we are often mis-educated into doing against our interest or enabling our own oppression.
In our ideal aspirations, we Africans would never need to patronize Europeans. Unfortunately, we remain in a situation where patronizing Europeans is difficult to get around.
Nevertheless, some of us go out of our ways to patronize Europeans. An example of this is Prime Access Inc. http://www.primeaccess.net/index.php?ni=1
I came across this site from a listing of the “top Black companies.” I looked into its work and noticed its pride at working for Europeans. It makes advertisements for European corporations so that Europeans can better profit off of Africans, Americans and homosexuals (an odd pairing.)
Quite naturally, some object to criticisms on an African company, seeing how no one criticizes a European company for the same thing. The problems are different or the problem is more defined. So to speak, it’s a different problem when Europeans try to profit from Europeans. Moreover, where are the European companies trying to make Africans profit off of Europeans? Finally, and most importantly, a just people must war against all injustices: African sell-outs ought be punished.
Without an ethical philosophy Africans are doomed as a people. It’s one of the first things robbed from us. I am on a mission to inculcate morality specifically because most of us have forgotten what goodness is. This corporation here vaunts its complicity in our poverty; yet we as Africans don’t even have the philosophical basis on which to object.
We are in a shameful state of affairs.
Beside from emphasizing the need for Philosophy, I urge how we must be critical of Africans too. Ideally, we will patronize Africans exclusively but on our terms. Turncoats will not dine with us!
