Dear President Akufo-Addo and Ghanaians,
I am humbly writing to share my thoughts about President Trump’s naked truth about Africans – “Africans are from shithole countries”. President Trump is the most honest White President ever when it comes to his takes on White-Black relationships – he publicly voices the thoughts of his pretending comrades.
Mr President, this is the response you gave to your colleague President Trump, “the language of @realDonaldTrump that the African continent, Haiti and El Salvador are “shithole countries” is extremely unfortunate. We are certainly not a “shithole country’. We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful.” Please, Donald Trump didn’t insult us. He just perfectly described the state of Ghana or most Black nations in the world. He doesn’t need to apologise to anyone! Blacks are total disgrace to planet earth. If there is heaven somewhere, I think that Utopia world described in religious manuals is Africa. Africa is supposed to be the Utopia of planet Earth but we chose to make it a cesspool with our corrupt attitudes.
Globally, Ghana is currently the 7th dirtiest country in the world. Ghana (Accra) experiences annual flood due to poor drainage system. In Ghana about 1.2 million people from 15 and above are unemployed. Do you know 84,000 youth struggled over 500 Immigration Service slots in 2017/2018 Recruitment? Ghana’s debt stock is GHc138.9 billion. Aren’t you a ‘shithole country’ when you have less than 30% shares in your own oil reserve? Aren’t you a ‘shithole country’ when you have to even beg for mosquito nets from other countries? Aren’t you a ‘shithole country’ when you allow foreigners to destroy your water bodies through small scale mining? Aren’t you a ‘shithole country’ when you have these rich natural resources yet the average person live on $2.00 a day?
Ghanaians, President Trump told us the naked truth but we couldn’t face the realities about ourselves so we got offended. Blacks all over the world need to face the hard realities about ourselves before we can move forward as people with mission. Blacks don’t even know how to transmute anger into productive venture. Instead of us to use the worlds of Mr Trump as inspiration to unite and develop, we are attacking him for telling us the truth!
Sorry I mentioned UNITY! I forgot Blacks all over the world don’t even understand what UNITY is. We ignorantly think to unite means we need to to have everything in common. Unity simply means we have a lot of differences but we ignore and focus on our common interest. Put Black people together on a platform, we will focus on our differences (religion, tribe, politic, etc) and fight instead of focusing on our common interest (total self-reliance of Africa) and work together. Blacks do not support their own. Nice words Ghanaians say about their comrades are mostly tributes.
No matter how racist it might sound, President Donald Trump was very honest. The question every Black must ask himself is, does the Whiteman in England, Germany, Serbia, etc know the difference between Akan, Ewe, Moosi, or Zulu? The truth is, they don’t even care about our tribe or religion. To them, all Blacks are exploited race no matter the religion, tribe or political affiliation. So, why do we allow trivialities prevent us from uniting to work for our collective development? Imagine what USA or Russia will achieve with a researcher like Apostle Dr Ing KWadwo Safo. In a ‘shithole country’ like Ghana, we don’t even see his value because of our ‘shithole mindset’.
Concluding, if Africans want respect, we should simply develop our countries with all the resources we have and nobody will insult us. This current economic status of our nations in the global village depict our nations as ‘shithole countries.’
Thank you very much.
