Racism Is Very High In Kenya And Africa

we too will one day rise

we too will one day rise

In the western world, or in some western country if you call a black man a Negro, you might even get jailed or at least very ostracised by the rest of the society so that it is just not worthy it being racist. Look at Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. In Kenya or in Africa, racism is at an all time high point. It is so bad, that it has been taken for granted by the local, people now see racism as something that should be. Racism has been accepted in Africa. How has this been achieved in the modern world where everyone, especially on television, seems to be fighting it.

The sprawling poverty in Africa

This is our beautiful home

This is our beautiful home

Poverty takes away any dignity that any human has and some evil white people know this and those who are unable to cure their racist behaviour have come to settle in Africa as tourists (of cause not all tourist are racist, some are nice fellows who only want to see lions in this country called Africa). Poor Africans can not help but worship the whites because the whites have money and the racist whites have taken advantage of this situation and are being blatantly racist. A good instance is the sexual exploitation that is happening at the Kenyan coast, old women, as old as 80 years old are raping young men, as young as 15. They call it love. Seriously, how can a fifteen years old boy fall in love with an eighty years old granny whose skin is hanging on to the bone like windows curtains. This is rape. If you are having sex with someone because they have money, because they have power for money is power, you are getting raped, it is your poverty driving you to do that disgusting act. They come with all manner of diseases and they do not butt an eyelid as they have unprotected sex with these minors. Why do they do that? Because they feel they are dealing with a less version of human, they do not feel shame just as you do not feel shame when killing a chicken for its meat or while riding on the back of a horse or Carmel. Recently, a white man was arrested for allegedly forcing girls at the coast to have sex with dogs, Of cause he was not forcing the girls to do that per se, he was paying them because he could afford it and they could stoop so low. Recently, the British government agree to pay compensation to the mau mau guys who sued for abuse and the amount they agreed to pay, about $4000 to people who lost limbs, land and relatives only affirm the notion that Africans are considered less human by the white people.

And then there is superiority and inferiority complex

"May I ride too?" "yeah, if you don't want the dollars"

“May I ride too?”
“yeah, if you don’t want the dollars”

This is a true story. I was once in a hotel and I was struggling to get the attention of the waiter and the waitresses and then a white couple came into the hotel and it was just shocking how the waitresses were falling over each others to serve the two.

"how old did you say you are?" "I will soon be thirteen, but I look eighteen don't I?"

“how old did you say you are?”
“I will soon be thirteen, but I look eighteen don’t I?”

This is so strong that when a black person is in the presence of white people, as either their guide or servant or spouse, the black person automatically feel superior to other black people, it is as if the fact that a white person is talking to them is an affirmation of this black person superiority to his other black brethren. But the black fellows at the coast do not feel this because they know they are merely being used as sex tools. They instead feel pathetic and turn to drug use and are not concerned about practising safe sex since their lives have lost meaning and value. sexual exploitation can do that to you.

The toothless african Governemnt

I sure do hope they do not overthrow me, I wish my countrymen understand that I am a mere puppet

I sure do hope they do not overthrow me, I wish my countrymen understand that I am a mere puppet

When Africans or black people see how their leaders act subserviently toward the white people, it drains down to everyone, they feel automatically that they are interacting with a superior race. Africans only wait for the talent and guile of one of their own to be recognized and applauded by the whites before they can follow suits. Look at the football and notice that the captains of all the teams are those individuals prying their trade in the western world. The same goes for literature where we have the like of Wole Soyinka, Ngugi Wa Thiong’o or the late Chinua Achebe being considered power house simple because they were recognized by the whites. This is in spite of the fact that they may not be the best or the most talented. For instance, Ngugi wa Thiongo may be a darling of the west but in kenya, the person whose stories are known by all is John Kiriamiti and his prison memoirs and Grace Ogot and his tekayo story. Kenyans know that Ngugi wa Thiongo is not the writer that fully represent them and I am sure the Nigerian in the street might disagree that Chinua Achebe is the writer who have touched them the most. I have read several books by Ngugi wa Thiong’o such as the river between, grain of wheat and devil on the cross but it did not touch and lift me as much as tekayo or Mwangi Gicheru’s popular book across the bridge nor did I find Chinua Achebe being as deep as Wole Soyinka or that guy who wrote that story Africa kill her sun. But, the white people spoke nicely about these people whom they possibly picked at random and Africans had to fall suit because Africans have no weighty say in such matter.

The slow but sure return on television and music of racism.

The modern technology

The modern technology

have you noticed that racism has returned to television as jokes and comic relief. Those doing these are riding on the assumption that those who suffered most at this evil are either dead or not much into the modern thing because a person who suffered at the hand of racism, a person who was barred from voting due to the color of his skin can not find anything funny in racist joke. Dave Chappelle discontinued his Chappell show on account that it was no longer about jokes but pure racism. Family guy is raced with racism for instance and although it is done with a light touch and only meant as comic relief, the fact that it has reached to a point where racism is a mere joke show how far and deep racism is entrenched in the mind of the world population and it is not different in Kenya and most of Africa. It is only worse in Africa.

    Interesting article.

  2. Raegus says:

    The only correction I would make is that racism is very rife in the western world, just that these days white people are racist only with their actions and not so much their words.

  3. But the Incurably racist from the west come to Africa where they know they can get away with racism

  4. Yolz says:

    This is what we want people to talk about

  5. David K Methu says:

    We’ve a certain casino in Westlands where the Romanian GM makes you curse the colour of your skin! She fires and hires depending on her your colour skin and she lets you know that you can’t take her anywhere as her employer is a politician of Asian decent.

    • what is his name we expose him and do you have some evidence of those he has fired because we can hound hem out of Kenya.

      • Doctor Menguele says:

        If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough…. There is no racism in this world; it is just the conception of the human being… A Kenyan Traffic Police who daily took bribes from White /Asian without any shame is not a racist indeed, he is just trying to make a living…

      • There is no racism? tell that to a south african or david methu

  6. David K Methu says:

    It’s apparent that the NCIC is toothless when it comes to ‘loaded’ perpetrators of racism. Ms Alina, a GM in one of the casinos in Westlands is an open racist and she knows she’s protected as her boss is an politician!!! What a shame….

  7. Taharka says:

    I am a Black man from England and I have seen first-hand how the white elites like the BBC subtly undermine black self-confidence for example they teach in schools that Wilberforce almost singlehandedly stopped the slave trade. That Africans sold Africans to white people this is the only dialogue that is allowed to black children; particularly from the Caribbean don’t feel a positive connection to Africa only negative. They don’t talk about the Africans who fought both white slavers and their black helpers to stop the slave trade or the forts built in places like Northern Ghana or Mali that were there to defend Africans from slavers. Attacks were launched from these places on slavers dragging Africans from Africa’s interior to the coast.

    I have lived in Ethiopia, the whites there can’t talk to the Ethiopians any way they please however, when I visited Kenya the blatant racism I witnessed from the whites was a real shock.
    Also the lack of racial pride in Kenyans and almost worshipping attitudes towards some real low life whites particularly from Kenyan females was also a real shock. Racism is white people’s problem not Africans I am now living in Ghana and the white people here banging on about gay rights while being quiet on racism makes me want to vomit and excellent article.

    • Well put Taharka, very well put, and you are spot on on noticing that in Ethiopia racism is unheard of, the Ethiopians possibly have the highest sense of pride esteem in africa, remember, they were never colonized and thus never learnt to worship the white people like most african who are just learning not to worship these fellows

  8. WAGAKIRA says:

    This is a very god article.I am in a college where students fall over themselves to please white classmates,especially the girls!Surely such behaviour has to stop…Not to mention how everyone was dying to help after westgate…simply because majority of shoppers are white or Indian,yet turn a deaf ear when people in Turkana are starving.

    • you nailed it WAGAKIRA? Finally someone who saw the hipocrisy about the westgate affair although we condole with those hurt, we should show similar emotion when people die of hunger in turkana or die in a bus accident

  9. eli says:

    why is this happening in kenya

  10. You're not a teacher says:

    Do you have any idea how racist this post actually is? It’s akin to the same racial fear mongering spouted by the likes of the KKK in the US. There is no doubt that racism exists in Kenya, but it is not a one way street. Your own racist words prove you are no better than those whose actions you condemn.

    The quality of your writing and the continuity of your argument is remarkably poor. You’re not a life teacher. You’re an uneducated (or at best poorly educated), racist cunt who has done nothing to further a dialogue that would lead to more understanding and peace between races. Your hateful words only further the division you seek to draw attention to.

    • did you read this line? “Poverty takes away any dignity that any human has and some evil white people know this and those who are unable to cure their racist behaviour have come to settle in Africa as tourists (of cause not all tourist are racist, some are nice fellows who only want to see lions in this country called Africa).” notice the word some, notice the words in blackets?

    The “white people” or those racists you claim to exist are a minority in the Western World. The U.S. has been the most obvious offender of the Black race and is paying the consequences of its actions even today.

    When Obama was elected it put an OFFICIAL end to the argument that “White People” are racist. Their are some white racist but they no longer exist in ANY majority.

    The white generations that abused Black People are either so old they are irrelevant or dead.

    To keep bringing up White People as being racist is in of its self racist.

    The Jews were almost wiped off the face of the Earth and do you see them calling all White Germans hate filled racist/bigots?

    People make mistakes, races make mistakes and generations make mistakes.

    I am a firm believer of remembering the past in a way of preventing such actions in the future.

    In order to do so one must first evaluate the actions of our own People, communities and religions before making general racist accusations.

    In the US their are people who feel so bad about being White and the horrible things White people have done, that they have set up clubs for them to talk about how bad they feel.

    These people where not involved in any racist/bigoted actions and in most cased neither were their parents or grandparents, yet they still feel guilty.

    I am not writing this to dispute your personal experiences, I am writing this to show you that your experiences being generalized in the way that they are, are in of them self racist.

    I believe in my heart that Africa in the next 100 years will be the next world power. Africa has the people, raw materials… to advance to or even surpass the economies of the Western World.

    For centuries the West and now the East has exploited Africa for its wealth. Africa is turning a page from its abusing history with the West to a more prosperous one.

    If at the end of the day Africa and Africans can not move on from the overwhelming racism is has and in some cases is still going though it is putting its future at risk.

    I apologize if any grammar or punctuation is incorrect.

    Sincerely,

    why is this not a concern to the kenyan people there are more of them then anybody and yet they still wait for better treatment why

  13. Anon says:

    Kenyans are outwardly humble and friendly people by disposition, especially toward people perceived as strangers. This includes people from other African countries. Nobody refers to us as having low self esteem for watching Nigerian movies, listening to Tanzanian and Congolese music or ordering Indian or Chinese. This humility should not be confused with true worship, especially when the subject of the adoration happens to come from economies tipped to benefit from ours through trade policies of the so called first world and currency standards. As for the usury of Kenyans in sex trade/tourism, it is a matter of morality, and some of the poor foreign men and women end up falling victim to fraud, con games and many get dumped when the money runs out.

  14. Anon says:

    Also, the reason why our political leaders act so subservient toward our former colonial masters is that our independence is a sham. The Kenyan stocks market is British dominated. So are the Kenyan blue chip, high employee and GDP contributers. Europe/US is our debtor and market and we would be risking a Zimbabwe kind of backlash if we diregarded their policies. It is not a coincidence that only a British oil company just happens to be striking all the best spots for oil. Its for this reason that our President on swearing in spoke about the struggle for independence not being over. So called Francophone Africa is worse. They are forced to deposit their countries reserve with france, give away oil and other minerals to french companies and have been losing any president who challenges France. Ivory Coast, Mali, Chad, to name a few. Lets hope our jubilee sees the end of this.

  15. Anon says:

    Actually, Life Teacher, it is because we are brainwashed from a young age. We are taught how the western powers saved us from backwardness, saved the world and gave us the UN, which is just another platform that our colonizers are using to maintain grip of our governments and resources. Lets also not forget the power of western controlled media where ogres and the ugly are given African features-with our front tooth beauty gap and all slaves are black. Why do our kids play with white dolls? American movies are also subliminal campaigners of the White savior of the world, the superiority of their culture, governwent, science, military and beliefs. Their citizens believe these. I recently heard an American missionery in South America comment how the locals kids were fascinated by the thought of an American in their world. I have read similar assumptions on sites belonging to caucasian expatriates in Kenya. It is the result of soft but effective power of subliminal brainwashing, on both sides.
