Tanzania Kicking Africans from Land so Europeans can Hunt

Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“When the governing class isn’t chosen for quality it is chosen for material wealth: this always means decadence, the lowest stage a society can reach.” — African Proverb (KMT)

Europeans standing on top of a pile of Buffalo skulls. This is entertainment to them!

For what reason would you kill a bear? In the last post we discussed separating from as opposed to exterminating all bears as an allegory on how to view Europeans who have done incomparably more damage against Africans and Africa than bears can ever dream of. Whereas Africans would rarely will the slaughter of bears, it’s imperative to understand that other races, Europeans especially, would make a sport of killing bears regardless of the threat the bear may make. Europeans kill things for fun.  Europeans kill things for entertainment. Europeans find entertainment in killing. Europeans would purchase plane tickets, travel with their family and friends to another country, go into another people’s land and kill those people and the animals–for fun. Europeans enjoy killings things and have enjoyed killing things for tens of thousands of years. Europeans kill things–for fun. Europeans watch things die for fun. Europeans cause death for fun. Europeans simulate killing in virtual worlds for hours on end as entertainment, calling it ‘videogaming’–to them it’s fun.  Europeans kill things for fun. For fun! For fun! For fun!

A Lion in Tanzania. It’s these animals that Europeans want to kill for fun. But they will kill Tanzanian Politicians and Tanzanian Residents (the Maasai) to kill these Lions, because to Europeans killing is killing is fun.

All that is said to reinforce one natural fact that is oft ignored in African circles, and its part of one of our core tenets: The problem with Europeans is Europeans. We ignore this reality. For some reason, we understand to never cross paths with a Crocodile, or a Bear, or a Lion, or a Tiger.  We understand that if one of these creatures mauls a person, it’s in its nature and that person should have known better. Yet, the European who is incomparably more dangerous, malicious, heartless, cruel than any of these beasts, still surprises Africans when he or she does something dangerous, malicious, heartless, or cruel. When a Police Officer beats an African youth in the streets, Africans protest “How is he allowed on the force?” as if these same Europeans never enslaved Africans and whipped and raped us at their leisure; as if these same Europeans never visited their own schools and shot every man, woman, or child for whom they had a bullet; as if these same Europeans never initiated two of the largest wars in history, the latter killing over 75 million in 6 years with over 100 million participants, roughly the population of the U.S. at that time; as if its somehow surprising that the people who daily abuse us are capable of abusing us!

Granted Europeans mis-Educate Africans and beat into our heads in school and on television that we are the uncivilized ones so naturally it would be hard to conclude the opposite of what one is taught one’s whole life (one’s foundation); yet this Ignorance has its backlash, Europeans are influential in our Governments at home and abroad. So for instance, in Tanzania, Europeans who want to kill things tell Tanzanian politicians that they can either kill Wild Animals or African Politicians, and with an ultimatum like that, it’s not surprising that Tanzanian politicians are ousting the Maasai people.

Problem number one is the Maasai are peaceful with a people with 40,000 years of Military Experience (and nothing else!) under their belt. Give a European an inch and he’ll take an ell.  Didn’t the Natives of America try to make peace with the European, too?

Europeans are the problem. This Knowledge will lead you to the natural consequence: You need to build Power to Protect yourself from the Problem. As Marcus Garvey said, “The only protection against INJUSTICE in man is POWER—Physical, financial and scientific.” When you think about Tanzania and the Maasai, think about Ancient KMT (Egypt.) Ancient KMT was part of the Nile Valley High Culture. The Nile Valley High Culture originated at the start of the Nile River. The Nile River starts in Uganda and travels through Tanzania and other nations until finally ending in KMT. This means that Tanzania was once part of the most powerful Civilization on the planet. You can still see today, remnants of that High Culture in the Maasai’s dress. Today, despite being descendents of the founders of KMT, and descendants of Ancient KMT’s diaspora, the Maasai are being exterminated by Tanzania in order that Europeans can hunt in Tanzania. When did African Power become synonymous with rolling over? Below is the letter from the Elders of the Maasai; following are articles on their ousting; throughout this newsletter are strategies on true organization. The African Blood Siblings needs more hands to recreate Powerful African Civilization. African Power somehow became synonymous with rolling over. If you believe it shouldn’t be, join the African Blood Siblings.

Marches are alright for exercise but we need Power for protection. Garvey started the UNIA with 13 people, ended up empowering over 6 million. The African Blood Siblings follows this strategy. Those who want justice will join.

Letter from Maasai Elders on Displacement,

Dear friends,

We are elders of the Maasai from Tanzania, one of Africa’s oldest tribes. The government has just announced that it plans to kick thousands of our families off our lands so that wealthy tourists can use them to shoot lions and leopards.The evictions are to begin immediately.

Last year, when word first leaked about this plan, almost one million Avaaz members rallied to our aid. Your attention and the storm it created forced the government to deny the plan, and set them back months. But the President has waited for international attention to die down, and now he’s revived his plan to take our land. We need your help again, urgently.

President Kikwete may not care about us, but he has shown he’ll respond to global media and public pressure — to all of you! We may only have hours. Please stand with us to protect our land, our people and our world’s most majestic animals, and tell everyone before it is too late. This is our last hope:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/maasai_fb_dm_3/?bNDofcb&v=23793

Our people have lived off the land in Tanzania and Kenya for centuries. Our communities respect our fellow animals and protect and preserve the delicate ecosystem. But the government has for years sought to profit by giving rich princes and kings from the Middle East access to our land to kill. In 2009, when they tried to clear our land to make way for these hunting sprees, we resisted, and hundreds of us were arrested and beaten. Last year, rich princes shot at birds in trees from helicopters. This killing goes against everything in our culture.

Now the government has announced it will clear a huge swath of our land to make way for what it claims will be a wildlife corridor, but many suspect it’s just a ruse to give a foreign hunting corporation and the rich tourists it caters to easier access to shoot at majestic animals. The government claims this new arrangement is some sort of accommodation, but its effect on our people’s way of life will be disastrous. There are thousands of us who could have our lives uprooted, losing our homes, the land on which our animals graze, or both.

President Kikwete knows this deal would be controversial with Tanzania’s tourists – a critical source of national income – and does not want a big PR disaster. If we can urgently generate even more global outrage than we did before, and get the media writing about it, we know it can make him think twice. Stand with us now to call on Kikwete to stop the sell off:

This land grab could spell the end for the Maasai in this part of Tanzania and many of our community have said they would rather die than be forced from their homes. On behalf of our people and the animals who graze in these lands, please stand with us to change the mind of our President.

With hope and determination,

— The Maasai community of Ngorongoro District

      Justice is relative. The European sees right in doing wrong. This is why giving him Power and not developing our own is one of our Race’s worse undertakings.

    I agree. I’m starting to realize that there is no justice, there is only power.

      There is Justice, but it’s not Universal, rather Racial. This is the lesson of the African Blood Siblings’ 5-part discussion on Race.

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/12/26/dialogue-one-of-five-on-race-culture-defined/

      The Code of Ethics and thus Justice is well-defined albeit in a complicated sentence:

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/directory/abs/lore/laws/law-of-morality/

      Simplified, two factors influence one’s decisions, “logic” and “circumstance.” Circumstance also has a diversity: internal and external circumstances. Logic is universal, external circumstances are local, but internal circumstances vary from race to race, species to species, negligibly from person to person.

      Our unity comes from our negligible differences in internal circumstances, i.e. Africans have a spiritual need to restore; erstwhile Europeans or Asians dominate or enslave, respectively. This makes our ethics different but existent, so as Justice is different so too is Power. African Power is different from European Power is different from Asian Power.

      All this is to say, our goal is different from other people’s. That’s why we Separate and why they can not assist. What’s more our goal is just for us. That’s why we are African Nationalists.

    This is what dependency looks like. Tanzania is dependent on Middle East and European tourism for survival. If this dependency means a destruction of what the essence of the country and it’s people is; then it’s too heavy a price to pay for tourism.
    Unfortunately, Tanzania has a trade imbalance. Exports are only half of what imports are. In addition to this negative situation, all their trading partners consist of European countries and the United Arab Emirates. The absence of trade with other African countries is astonishing.
    Plus debt with the IMF and World bank have proved to be disastrous, due to the high interest rates.
    All these things would have to be addressed, in order to pry it’s economy away from their enemies. In the mean time it would appear the only recourse is to bring world attention to the situation.

      What Amos Wilson wrote in Chapter 21 of “Blueprint for Black Power” of Africans in America can easily be expressed for Africans in Africa:

      “The power of the concept of nation as an analytical instrument used to arrive at a practical understanding of problems faced by the Afrikan American community, can be demonstrated by applying it in the analysis of a broad range of social problems. For example, the basic cause of institutional under-performance and/or dysfunctionality (e.g., inadequate educational, recreational, social(ization) institutions); lack of employment opportunities; family instability and disruption; inadequate housing; antisocial, criminal behavior; individual distress and dysfunctionality; can in significant part, be traced back tot he general state of the Afrikan American community considered as a nation. For this litany of problems which afflicts the national Black community may in large measure be said to reflect the disorganization of the Black American economy. More specifically, if the Afrikan American community were perceived as a nation it would become immediately apparent that its fundamental problem, like many other Afrikan nations which present similar problems, is its national debt. Like other Afrikan nations, it suffers a net outflow of monetary and human resources; it is unable to retain for any reasonable length of time, hard currency reserves within its borders; its economic infrastructure is dominated by alien business establishments which siphon its wealth; it is by far, more indebted to outside communities than to its own internal establishments and as a result, suffers a chronic liquidity crisis. It suffers from infrastructural problems (poor highways, streets, industrial facilities, housing, police protection, etc.) which hamper its economic growth potential and attractiveness to investors. It suffers an overwhelming trade deficit with other communities, meaning it buys far more from other communities than it sells to those communities, that it retains for itself far less of what it earns from other communities than what other communities earn from it and retain for themselves.”

      More than World Attention, Local Organization can work toward the retention of indigenous and alien earnings, as well as disciplining the consciousness of Africans toward African industry. This is part of the mission of the African Blood Siblings. It is our hope that Africans in Tanzania respond to the call toward Local Organization and put into practice the theories of our loving forebears. Marcus Garvey’s quotation remains a favorite: “[We] must not mistake lip-service and noise for bravery and service.”

    sittinducks,

    Are the leaders of Tanzania creating this symbiotic relationship on purpose?

      The problems the countries in Africa are faced with are many. I don’t see any evidence that leaders of Tanzania are creating this symbiotic relationship on purpose. But rather many of the problems are rooted in colonialism and neocolonialism. For instance infrastructure was built only to take out raw materials. The loans to African states have often proven to be booby traps, carrying very high rates of interest and given only under unfavorable terms. There are serious internal problems as well, such as corruption and inefficiency. In order to get products to an African market, vendors often have to pay many bribes and the logistics can be overwhelming.

      The following is one of the better sites on the subject:

      Brother Morpheus,

      One passage from Amos Wilson reminds me of your question. I’ll type it for your convenience. It is from from Chapter 21 of “Blueprint for Black Power.”

      The failure to view the Afrikan American community as a nation-within-a-nation or in short, as a nation, by Afrikan American scholars, thinkers, social analysts, intellectuals (i.e., opinion shapers such as newspapers columnists, print and electronic media establishments and personalities, community activists and institutional leaders) and social commentators means that many of the problems which confront the community have not been appropriately and usefully analyzed or resolved. This means that a number of useful and powerful approaches to resolving those problems have been ignored or overlooked. The principal conceptual instruments that Afrikan American thinkers and problem-solvers utilize in dealing with the problems confronting the Afrikan American community have been those handed down to them by the liberal intellectual establishment which represents the interest of the White American nation. These instruments primarily include individualistic and familial analyses, and secondarily, institutional, communal and (sub)cultural analyses. Consequently, the use of these instruments and their analytical outcomes almost invariably leades to the victim-blaming conclusions; that the sources of all social problems in the Afrikan American community are either due to an aggregation of individual inabilities, capabilities, lacks, impairments, deficiencies, errant motives and drives; family weaknesses, values, pathologies, disruptions; institutional insufficiencies and dysfunctions; or to aberrant communal and subcultural mores, folkways and worldviews.

      While other analysts may with sound reasons point the finger of blame at the racist, structural dynamics and hegemony of the White American nation, they all but ignore the structural dynamics of the African American community and its organizational vulnerability to racism. This is principally the result of their stimulus-bound and reactionary belief that the Afrikan American community is hopelessly dependent on the White American community, is incapable of self-determination and therefore must await the favorable transformation of White racist attitudes, behaviors, and social structural dynamics before it can be rescued from its problems. Therefore, an inordinate amount of individual time and energy as well as organizational skill is utilized by this group of thinkers and activists not to productively, socially, economically, and politically transform the African American community, but to vainly importune, cajole or pressure the White community to change its ways. Meanwhile, the Black community is left to fester and decay, its potential to build a nation wasting away.

      Individualistic, familial, institutional, and subcultural approaches to White racism in America and social problems in the Black community, can only yield problem-solving outcomes commensurate with their narrow analytical ranges. While social structural approaches to these issues are much broader in their analytical range, their analyses of the overall national dynamics which interact to the detriment of the Afrikan American community instructive, their relative lack of concern with changing the structural nature of the community leads to additional problems while not solving the original ones.”

      Frankly, the “leaders” do not have a choice, much like 98% of working Africans in America work for Europeans without a choice. Carolina Maria de Jesus wisely stated it, “Actually we are slaves to the cost of living.” I wrote out before, the four necessities are “Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness.”

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/the-fourth-necessity/

      The vast majority of Africans worldwide depend on Europeans or Asians for these four. As we established, “Dependence is Poverty is Slavery.”

      Amos Wilson and Sister sittinducks shows, it’s not the ‘leaders’ but the debt. Alton Maddox put it thusly,

      We Organize for Liberation because we are enslaved.

      Leaders are only Balloons (see Allegory: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/allegory-of-the-balloon/)

    Thanks for the rsponse, the PDF you linked was a good read.

    I asked if it was done on purpose because I know that governments have done things like that in the past. The leaders are usually lobbied – and bribed with so much wealth that they can care less about their people. I thought that this was happening.

      Bro. Amos Wilson in his book “Blueprint For Black Power” places the corruption, not so much in the leaders, but powerlessness on the part of the African masses, whether they be African on the mother continent or African in the diaspora. Here is an excerpt from Chapter 31, “The Crisis Of Leadership”:
      “In the United States Of America the primary source of the host of problems which plague the Afrikan American community is powerlessness. Powerlessness is also the source of the host problems which plague Afrikan nations and peoples across the Diaspora. Afrikan communities, both at home and abroad, are corrupted by weaknesses which if not remediated by their acquisition of power will inevitably lead to their absolute corruption and final demise. Rollo May asserted “Power is essential for all living things. If we neglect the factor of power, as is the tendency in our day of reaction against the destructive effects of the misuse of power, we shall lose values that are essential to our existence as humans.”
