Covid-19 And Black Lives Matter

You can be your own greatest enemy and you cannot win a battle when you are the oppressed and standing on the same side as your oppressors.

Covid-19 And Black Lives Matter

By Adeola Aderounmu

I have not written so much in recent weeks/months. This is the 26th day of June 2020. I did not even write anything about June the 12th this year. I am sure l still have a lot of blog entries from the past that would suffix on that topic.

This year so far has been dominated by the covid-19 pandemic and BLM-Black Lives Matter demonstrations. I have so far refrained from writing about both until now.

Researchers in Norway have put to rest the origin of the virus. In a report released and later erased on Forbes, the researchers concluded that the virus was man-made which we have suspected all along. Covid-19 is China-American invention. If the world can speak with one voice they will call out both countries and the purpose of their evil action would be ascertain.

But for as long as no one is bold enough to ask the real questions, then let all of humanity continue to suffer and grief the death of our loved ones.

I wish l could address the world at the same time how l feel about the BLM. I wish I could address Africa and then Nigeria about my feeling about the BLM.

If I stay on the my lane as someone who originated from the country called Nigeria, it becomes a very personal thing and my views are not going to be the same as an ignorant black man in Nigeria fighting the BLM cause without looking at himself in the mirror to see the reflection of himself-a hypocrite.

Black lives has never mattered in Nigeria since the first of october 1960. It got worse between 1967 and 1970 when black people in the geographical region called Nigeria massacred one another in a bitter civil war.

If you are an African scholar of history (which l am not), you can do a chronological order of the wars and violence in Africa since the end of slavery and colonisation. How well has the black race fared in running her own affairs? It is always easy to blame the influence of the outside world but do you know how easily Africa and Africans will set themselves free by becoming united and determined to take their rightful place in the global order of things.

Africa can hold the world by its balls and finally taste freedom.

I would stay on my lane because it´s too easy to get involved in Africa and the global mess.

You can read my blog for all the evil things that Nigerian politicians have unleashed on the citizens since 1960. Do Nigerian lives matter? Really?

In Nigeria, the politicians are either former criminals or present criminals. Look at the value of life of an average Nigerian, look into my eyes and tell me a Nigerian life matter. Fuck you if you dare tell me that!

Even a Nigerian politician has no value on his own life or the lives of those he loves and hate.

Do you need examples?

When Babangida´s wife was sick, where was she treated? She was treated abroad and she died abroad. If Babaganida loved his wife, she would have been treated in a hospital that he built out of all the several billions of dollars he stole. So, look at this this way, he hated the people so much he stole and impoverished them. He hated himself so much he cannot provide for his health care in Nigeria. The lives of the people don´t matter. His life and that of his family never mattered. Do you still think black lives matter?

Look at Yar Adua and Ajimobi. It is old fashioned not to speak evil of the dead. Who is going to leave this planet alive anyway? Both men were governors of their respective states in Nigeria for 8 years. When they got sick, they could not be treated in their respective states. Were these normal human beings? Did their lives matter? To whom? Themselves? Do you think black lives matter to them when for 8 years, they did not think of providing basic and standard healthcare even for themselves and their families in their own states of origin?

If you read my blog from 2007, you will find one thousand reasons why Black Lives don´t matter in Nigeria.

As you read, nobody knows who is in charge of Nigeria. But today Nigeria is running a government of the corrupt, by the corrupt, for the corrupt. How can Black Lives Matter when the purpose of politics is to steal, create criminals and spread poverty? Help me to understand how black lives matter in Nigeria.

We are clamouring for regional government. We are shouting for change and independence of Biafra, Oduduwa, Arewa and the Niger Delta Republic. What we are not talking about is what we are going to do with the evil in the hearts of men. We are wicked, selfish, and very, very thoughtless!

If Black Lives would matter in Nigeria, we need to talk and l want to be involved.

I need to know how you think and what you are doing to emancipate the black race.

I wish l have the time to blog all my thoughts and everything in my head. My examples are not the only ways to view black lives matter and the way get the black race out of bondage. An African woman is wearing a wig and is shouting black lives matter. What happened to the African hair that makes her African? You threw away your identity and your culture and you think your lives matter. Help me understand how you think. You abandon your religion and demonised your ancestors and you are shouting black lives matter.

You can be your own greatest enemy and you cannot win a battle when you are the oppressed and standing on the same side as your oppressors.

Our lives begin to matter the day we unite as Africans…
