AFRICA, THE WORLD OWES YOU
Palm trees, discovered in Africa
Exported to Asia in 1800s,
Farmed exploitatively in Asia.
Farming that promotes climate change,
Decimating forests and extinguishing species.
Palm trees farmed responsibly in Africa;
Farming that is environmentally friendly,
Sustainable, and undervalued by
Eastern and Western corporate interests.
Interests that put greed over humanity and the environment.
Palm oil is currently the oil
That powers the world economy.
Palm oil as ubiquitous as crude oil in
Powering manufacturing, especially in
The food and cosmetics industries.
Africans exported as Chattel Slaves to the Americas;
Americas and Europe, beneficiaries of chattel slavery.
Chattel slavery that powered the
Agricultural revolution and subsequently the
European and American industrial revolutions.
African slaves exploited as Chattel
Chattel if valued properly, would
Have stalled the industrial revolution.
Beneficiaries of Chattel Slavery still
Engaged in Chattel Racism and Hatism.
Africa, what have you gained?
Nothing but continued derision and exploitation.
The current Chinese “explorers” soon to be followed by
The Russians, Koreans, and the Azerbaijanians as
Africa and her rich resources continue to be discovered.
The world owes her progress and
Development to the docility and stupidity of Africans.
Contemplate the price of Palm oil, if
Palm oil came from Palm trees in Antwerp?
When shall the world start paying her debts to Africa?
