Why The West Must Understand Africa Now

By Neenah Payne

Africa Unites Against WHO World Power Grab shows the new face of Africa on the world stage now with the launch of the African Sovereignty Coalition (ASC).

Africa Led Opposition To WHO Global Power Grab

Part of Dr. Joseph Mercola’s article “The Shocking Truth About the Global Depopulation Agenda” copied below shows that a united Africa led the opposition to the World Health Organization’s global power grab as 47 African nations just said “No!”

“The U.S. proposed 12 regulations in December 2021 that would put the WHO at the center of these things and put in place very draconian regulations that would allow the WHO to supersede any decisions at the national government level. In a vote on those new international health regulation amendments, 47 African countries rejected all of them.

Africa really led the way in saying ‘No, we don’t trust the WHO, we don’t want the WHO in this role.’ That’s very exciting because Africa absolutely has been exploited in every which way by the WHO and their pharmaceutical industry partners. I don’t think the WHO agenda is dead. We still have a lot of work to do. But clearly, we did have on Saturday an African sovereignty coalition launch, which you can see on the Children’s Health Defense TV website.

There were activists, advocates, physicians, scientists from all over Africa, and then supporters from around the world. It’s very exciting. I think Africa is sending a message loud and clear we will not put up with this.

TED Talk: The Danger of a Single Story

Although Africa is the homeland of humanity and civilization, most Americans know little about this vast continent because our educational system doesn’t cover African history. The corporate media always presents Africa as poverty-stricken, AIDS-ridden, rife with ebola, and war-torn with massive migrations. However, as Africa increasingly assumes a greater role on the world stage, Americans will need to understand more about this vast continent of 54 nations.

The danger of a single story, the 2009 TED Talk by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, is one of the most popular TED Talks — with now over 10 million views. It explains,

“Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.”

In the video Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – PEN Pinter Prize 2018, Adichie spoke about what it means to be a writer as she accepted the prize in London. Adichie has given speeches to the graduating classes of Harvard, Wellesley, and many other Ivy League universities.

In the video Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – “Americanah” – International Authors’ Stage, Adichie shows us that understanding the African perspective gives us greater insight into America.

Myth of White Supremacy Is Based on Stolen Legacy

The Myth of White Supremacy says that Europeans and White Americans created everything of value in the world and no other peoples created anything. Therefore, Europeans have the right to take the lands of other peoples, enslave, and kill them. We are told Greeks are the fathers of Western civilization. However, the ancient Greeks said they learned everything they knew from studying in Egypt.

Oscar Is Based on Egyptian God Ptah explains that we are basically living in ancient Egypt because the US Founding Fathers worshipped Egypt — and knew it was Black. So much of the real history of the West has been erased.  Several European and American authors have been working to restore our fascinating real history. The Hermetica: The Lost Wisdom of The Pharaohs shows it would be hard to overstate the impact of Egyptian culture on Europe. In the inspiring video below, British author Peter Gandy reads from the book’s introduction and cites the quote: “A nation without a history is like a man without a memory”.

Gandy points out:

The correct memory of who we are, where we’ve come from is essential to understanding who we are right now, and where we are going. We live in a culture that has been so bowdlerized by the Christian takeover which has endured for a couple thousand years and has given us a completely mistaken identity of who we are. Our memory is wrong. Your memory is your identity. Without a correct memory, we don’t know who we are or where we’re going. So, for me, history is a sacred science. Also, it is about giving credit where credit is due.”

Gandy explains that when the “Classics” were established as the curriculum of the British Empire, the English and other Europeans could not admit their debt to the peoples they were enslaving and falsified the origin of Western civilization by attributing it to Greeks rather than to Egypt. However, ALL the ancient Greeks studied in Egypt — the center of learning. It was a badge of honor to study there.

When President Thomas Jefferson defeated the Moors in 1804, there was no one left on the world stage to keep the record straight and Europe began to falsify the origin of its civilization to maintain The Myth of White Supremacy based on The Stolen Legacy. See Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy. Instead of sharing their new-found knowledge, Europeans used The Myth of White Supremacy to justify the theft of continents, slavery, and genocide in the Americas and Africa.

Moors Rescued Europe From The Dark Ages

When Moors Rescued Europe From The Dark Ages explains that the Moors re-introduced the wisdom of ancient Egypt the Greeks had not been able to maintain. Egypt is the origin of Western civilization – our languages and alphabets, architecture, sciences, the three Western religions, and so much more.

Europeans were illiterate except the clergy. The Moors introduced libraries and 17 universities to which Western Europe flocked. They replaced Roman numerals with Arabic numbers we use today. The Moors created gardens that enhanced the nutrition and health of Spain and surrounding countries.

The Moors introduced awesome architecture — the pride of Spain today. While the kings of England were living in huts, the people of Spain had air-conditioned, heated homes with lighted streets. The Moors introduced maps, ship-building, and guns. Without the Moors, Spain, Portugal, England, etc. could never have sailed to the Western Hemisphere or conquered Africa.

Without the Moors, Europe might still be in the Dark Ages today! Yet, the first people the Spanish enslaved were the Moors!

Understanding Africa Is Key To Understanding The West

World War I led to World War II which was devastating for all of Europe, America, and Japan. We are told that WWI started because the Duke of Austria was shot. However, in the video How Europe Conquered Africa, Professor James Small explains that is just a cover story which had nothing to do with the real reasons for WWI.

Professor Small discusses the connection between Europe’s colonization of Africa in the late 19th century and the launch of World War I. He explains that at the Berlin Conference in 1894-1895, European nations agreed on how to carve up and colonize Africa. When Germany later discovered it had gotten the short end of the stick in Africa, it attacked France, Poland, and Austria to gain the coal, timber, and farmland it needed. That was the real reason for the start of World War I.

The video Ancient Africa: How Europeans have it wrong points out that Africa is now the fastest growing economy of the world. In 2013, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 2015–2024 the “International Decade for People of African Descent.”

Professor Kevin MacDonald of UCL African Studies explains that the real history of Africa as well as its political, artistic, and technological sophistication have been written out of our understanding of Africa and are just being recovered now. He says we need to re-educate ourselves and the world about Africa.

Professor MacDonald explains that about 2,000 years ago when Paris had a population of about 10,000, there were cities of 10,000-20,000 in West Africa. These civilizations were on a par with anything in Britain at the time.

He points out that the 19th century European scramble for Africa came at a time when African cultures had been devastated for centuries by European enslavement of Africans. Otherwise, Africa could have defended itself. In fact, Professor Small shows in the video How Europe Conquered Africa that Africa put up a mighty fight – some countries for 50 years – and almost won!

The Berlin Conference (1884-1885)

King Leopold II’s Murderous Assault on The Congo

The video linked below explains how the exploitation of rubber from the Congo facilitated the use of bicycles and cars in Europe and America. King Leopold of Belgian owned the Congo (14 times the size of Belgium) and established brutal penalties if rubber quotas were not met. By the time photographic evidence of the horrors forced Leopold to relinquish control of the colony in 1908, it is estimated that 10 million people, half of the Congo’s population, had been murdered during Leopold’s inhumane greedy rule.

 The Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 | Africa’s Great Civilizations (video)

“In 1884 the leaders of fourteen European countries and the United States came together to discuss control of Africa’s resources. Known as The Berlin Conference, they sought to discuss the partitioning of Africa, establishing rules to amicably divide resources among the Western countries at the expense of the African people. Of these fourteen nations at the Berlin Conference, France, Germany, Great Britain, and Portugal were the major players. Notably missing were any representatives from Africa.”

How Berlin Conference Led to WWI and WWII

Dubois and Africa: The Convergence of Consciousness

Dr. Molefi Asante was raised in the US and was given an African name. His wife is from Ghana. He discusses the connection between The Berlin Conference and WWI and WWII.

Causes Of WWI explains:

“A cause of World War I not often discussed is the intense competition to rape Africa. A simple google search of “Scramble for Africa” would return you with plenty results citing the time period of the scramble as 1881-1914. There is no coincidence that World War I started in 1914 … I Don’t think it is a coincidence that Germany lost all four of its colonies after it lost WWI.”


“Imperialism was carried out by the powerful European nations against the rest of world in the decades before World War I began. For example, in the 19th century European nations carried out massive campaigns of imperialism against the regions of Africa in an event known as the Scramble for Africa. The Scramble of Africa led to the start of World War I because it increased the rivalry between the European nations as they fought against each other for territory in Africa and control over different regions.​

In general, European imperialism of Africa created tensions in that Germany felt left out of territory in the region. For example, in 1884, German leader Otto von Bismarck called the Berlin Conference which had the European powers meet to discuss the division of Africa into regions controlled by the European nations. The purpose of the meeting was to avoid starting a major European conflict and to lessen tensions because the Scramble for Africa was leading to an intense rivalry and distrust between the Europeans powers. The peace created at the Berlin Conference did not last as the rivalry between the European powers increased as they approached 1914. For instance, Britain and France were the two Europeans nations that had control over the largest regions of Africa during the Scramble for Africa and this caused tension with Germany. Germany was angry that it lacked the colonies in Africa (as well as Asia) that both Britain and France had and resented their general role in Africa. For example, in 1914, Britain had 56 total colonies around the world; France had 29 colonies and Germany was limited to just 10 colonies.”

Berlin Conference of 1884: Did It Start WWI?

“There were a number of causes for the start of World War I, including Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism and Nationalism. The Berlin Conference of 1884 contributed to each of these causes and, therefore, was also a contributor to the start of World War I.

In the latter half of the 18th century, European nations became rivals seeking the vast resources of undeveloped Africa as they sought to find sources of raw materials and trade to grow their economies….Some of these rivalries were settled by force. For example, in the 1800’s Great Britain took control of South Africa away from the Dutch…. This led to the first Anglo-Boer war in 1881…Later discoveries of metals and precious stones led to further expansion by the British….

The Berlin Conference heightened these rivalries by creating the so-called ‘Scramble for Africa’, especially due to the Principle of Effectivity, which required more than just a simple claim to a territory…. Still further expansion by the British, led by Dr. Jameson in 1896….proved to Germany, which sought to assist the Dutch in this conflict but lacked any naval power, that a stronger military was needed to protect their interests…..

Despite the agreed upon ‘Spheres of Influence’ at Berlin, it became increasingly clear that a buildup of military forces (militarism) would provide defense against aggressive European powers seeking to undermine the Berlin Conference agreements, as well as provide an offensive means to secure control themselves. Thus, the Berlin Conference sowed the seeds of militarism and eventually an ‘arms race’, which later contributed to the start of World War I.”

The Berlin Conference (1884 – 1885)

The United States of Africa

Dr. Molefi Asante is the author of The History of Africa. In the video below, he explains how the Berlin Conference (11/15/1884 – 2/26/1885) carved up Africa, why that happened, and the consequences today for an African Renaissance. Dr. Asante explained that when Idi Amin, President of Uganda, went to Scotland, he said if Europeans can name themselves kings and queens of African nations, he could name himself king of Scotland! This is the origin of the title of the film The Last King of Scotland.

Dr. Asante explains the three doctrines that came out of the Berlin Conference:

  1. Sphere of Influence
  2. Effective Occupation
  3. Legitimate Interest

Dr. Asante discusses the uniting of African nations into a United States of Africa with four languages and a single passport.  He discusses dual citizenship for Blacks in the diaspora.

Toward the African Renaissance: A New Africa

“Dr. Molefi Asante discusses his dream for a United States of Africa, a movement begun by Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president. He will examine the prospect for an African Renaissance based on the idea of an African Federative Union and present the prospects and problems of a continental government in Africa. March 8.”
