While China, Japan, India and other countries are trying to build bridges with Africa through respectful relationships, France murders, threatens and robs Africa using its armed robbers (the French army). By doing so, they keep creating enemies across the world, especially among Africans. More and more Africans are getting tired of this practice, and we will not back down.
Let’s think about for a second... What is the first thing that comes to your mind when talking about France? As Africans, regardless where you go around Africa, French or English speaking Africans, the answer is the same:
- France is seen as arrogant people with an eternal history of colonialism.
- France is seen as a country with weapons, which killed and kills Africans to rob them of their wealth.
- France is seen as a terrorist nation with bunch of robbers who destabilize the stability of countries that are supposed to be sovereign, just to feed itself.
So, in such situation, what else are France good at aside from murder and robbery? And how is France compared with other nations? Let’s look at what makes those nations respected and liked first.
Germany: When we talk about Germany, people think about cars and engineering. From Mercedes-Benz to BMW, from Audi to Porsche, Germany is known for hard work. They build the best cars and are able to sell at every corner of the world, without making any enemies. No matter where you go, from North Korea to China, from Uganda, to India, German cars are respected and loved. German products are seen as being of strong quality and people love to buy them. When you talk about Germany today, the last thing that comes to mind is war. Nowadays, Germany is known about anything but being accused of murdering citizens of any other country or destroying countries around the world. As a result, Germans are respected and well seen across the world.
Switzerland: Do you wear a Swiss Watch? Do you have a Swiss Bank Account? Have you visited Geneva, Zurich? Do you enjoy Swiss Chocolate? There is anything you can imagine from Switzerland except murdering and robbing other countries. Switzerland is known for smart working and success, because they focus on thinking rather than killing, like the French way. To the point that, many French people are so poor that they sometimes run to Geneva to find jobs. Instead of focusing on using their brain to build something decent, France prefers to rob, because they got weapons. Switzerland is respected today for staying neutral to the world’s problems; hence, they are almost welcomed by any other country in the world.
Sweden: Similar to Switzerland, Sweden is also a neutral country. In fact, neither Switzerland, nor Sweden were involved in war since 1800’s. Despite being a small country, Sweden prefers to focus on thinking and creating great cars like Volvo, great companies like IKEA and caring for the wellbeing of its citizens. Swedes, like most Nordic people, are today one of the wealthiest and happiest people in the world, unlike France where almost everyone complains about something with arrogance like bastards.
Great Britain: Yes, Britain was known in the past for colonizing almost every single country. But today, 2021, countries that were formerly under the British colonization are not expressing any resentment against Britain. Instead, they cooperate with Britain in a respectful way, and they have the ability to diversify their economic partners. Why is that? Well, because Britain has learnt to turn the page and focus on business rather than murders and robbery (like France does). Great Britain is known for luxurious and great cars like Rolls Royce, Land Rover, and Mini Cooper before they sold some of their brands to other car manufacturers. Britain is also known for one of the biggest companies in the World, such as Unilever, AstraZeneca, BHP, etc.
The list goes on once you start adding countries like China, Japan, India, Russia, South Corea, etc., you wonder why can’t French act like those respectful countries. You can accuse those countries for anything, but murdering and robbing Africans for no reasons.
France, on the other hand, is Africa’s number one enemy. It sounds like France is incapable of thinking, using their brain to build their lives like Germany, its major rival, does. While Germany keeps thriving and maintaining its 4th place among largest world economies, behind Japan, China and the US, France keeps sliding down. India and the United Kingdom are doing much better today than France. Instead of thinking for better ways to thrive, France is still hanging on its centuries-old practice – colonialism – killing other people, threatening Africans with guns in order to rob them of their wealth.
There is no difference between the French style and terrorism or robbery. It is exactly the same process. You got weapons; you use your weapons to take other people into hostage so you can rob them of their wealth. Additionally, instead of teaching your people to use their brains, you keep them in laziness, feeding them with free money while they do spend no efforts to improve their lives. That is the French style. When you have not earned the money you spend, it is easy to waste it. But when you have to work hard to earn that money, than you spend more time saving it and teaching your “kids” good and sustainable manners.
While China, Japan, India and other countries are trying to build bridges with Africa through respectful relationships, France murders, threatens and robs Africa using its armed robbers (the French army). By doing so, they keep creating enemies across the world, especially among Africans. More and more Africans are getting tired of this practice, and we will not back down. We do understand that we do not yet have the military deterrent, like North Korea does, to keep France away from us and build our economy. But we absolutely will win the fight in the end. France will keep creating enemies in Africa, while other countries keep building bridges with Africa. Sooner or later, the African people will act in our own ways – it starts with some protests here and there, than some endless articles like these one to ask for France to rethink its methods – before it goes much worse. It is not late for France to put it arrogance aside, be more respectful towards the African people and stop manipulating African leaders.
Dear France, do the right thing. Think and choose the right paths with Africa.
