Letter from King Leopold II of Belgium to Colonial Missionaries, 1883

Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solution for Africans is Africans!” — Onitaset Kumat

Today: King Leopold II’s letter to Colonial Missionaries.  Here he writes candidly of our ethical superiority and the intentional dependence forced upon us through religion.  It’s important to realize that Occidentals (Europeans) organize against our independence, thus in order to become independent and prosperous, we need to organizeSubscribe to the African Blood Siblings’ newsletter that we can coordinate and organize to create independent, prosperous African communities at home and abroad by building African Blood Siblings Community Centers at home and abroad.  Write us for more information.

Preface: “The [below] speech which shows the real intention of the Christian missionary journey in Africa was exposed to the world by Mr. Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko,  born in the Congo in 1915, and who in 1935 while working in the Congo, bought a second hand Bible from a Belgian priest who forgot the speech in the Bible.” —  Dr. Chiedozie Okoro

“Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact.  You will go certainly to evangelize, but your  evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests.  Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach the niggers to know God, this they  know already.  They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know.  They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s  wife, to lie and to insult is bad.  Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already.  Your essential role is to facilitate the task of  administrators and industrials, which means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in that part of the world.  For these  things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make  you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you.

Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will  inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.”  You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives  courage to affront us.  I make reference to their Mystic System and their war fetish-warfare protection-which they pretend not to want to abandon, and you must do  everything in your power to make it disappear.

Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings.   The children have to learn to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul.  You must singularly insist on their total submission and  obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason.  There, dear patriots, are some of the principles that you must apply.   You will find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference.  Evangelize the niggers so that they stay forever in submission to the white  colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing.  Recite every day-“Happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for  them.”

Convert always the blacks by using the whip.  Keep their women in nine months of submission to work freely for us.  Force them to pay you in sign of  recognition-goats, chicken or eggs-every time you visit their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich.  Sing every day that it’s impossible for the rich to  enter heaven.  Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass. Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres.  Institute a confessional  system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker.  Teach the niggers to  forget their heroes and to adore only ours.  Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you.  Don’t give him more than one cigarette.  Never invite him for  dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at his house.

  1. Everything witten by this King Leupold has come to pass. By now it should be obvious to anyone what the Europeans were doing in Africa. Religion is simply a tool for them. Other than that it had no meaning. This is evidenced by all the suffering in the world. Religion is the flip side of corrupt government. The directive not to let “niggers” get rich applies as much today as it did then. For example, after researching some background on Michael Jackson’s finances a truth started to emerge. That truth is that no “nigger” was going to control that level of wealth and hence power. MJ had rid himself of governments’s tool and spoke from his own spirituality radiating from within. He had to die. And power attacked him from all fronts.

    1. Brother,

      Tell us more about this MJ finance situation. Maybe you can write an article for our consumption. We would be much obliged. I do not know the level of MJ’s wealth–and its relation to his death [I never really followed that news.]

      That’s something though. This is why African people need to “Maroon.” Nanny knew how to deal with Europeans.

      1. Thank you brother for inviting me to write an article on the truth about Michael Jackson’s financial situation. I will be very happy to submit a factual history of his finances complete with sources. The mainstream media was no friend of MJ and reported to the public lies and misinformation about him, particularly when he started to expose racism and corruption in the music industry.

      2. Brother, it sounds like an interesting article already. I did not even know that MJ was growing in his consciousness. That’s not being covered in the news. It would be great to read of the importance of this MJ trial. Things happen all over again. But hopefully, if we repeat ourselves enough, our people will see the light. Bless you Brother. Hotep!

    1. Encourage those you know to subscribe and look around this site. There’s more to the “zapping” than Leopold. My latest post, “Amazing fact 91,” shows that we used to call ourselves “Negroes” in Africa at least 3,000 years ago, but today we hate the term: our own names. Beside, I also host stories to encourage our economical, political and cultural ascent. Here we can communicate to our reclaimed legacy!

      Hotep (Peace)!

  2. This site is treasure for us nigger,black like us. Africans need information and education about our history,our grand grand parents have not have bible and use to worship God, and respect the law of God,i will be happy to continue to receive information from this web
