I shall begin by saying that I am of pure, unadulterated African descent (before I get accused of being a White supremacist).
First of all, I would like to define what exactly African culture is? Is it the tribal issues that we see today? Is it the style of life that we see
in African countries today? If so, one can clearly see that such ways of life are not conducive for the advancement of the African and humanity.
Now, without disrespect, having been born and brought up in a European country, I feel that the adoption of European/Western ideals/values by
Sub-Sahara Africa should take place.
Or even more so, African culture should be redefined. That is, emphasis should be placed on industriousness, self-determination, ambition, strength
and independence. What we see of African culture today is the irrational clinging onto colonial religions (i.e. Christianity/Islam) and ancestral
traditions (which have themselves done nothing to advance humanity or the African himself).
Furthermore, I believe that African countries should go through a Nazi-German-type like stage. Not fascism or socialism per se - but rather, some
strong and formidable ideals that make the African proud and confident and hard-working and industrious and self-determined.
The African should be rational. He should take up empiricism and the sciences as beacons of advancement and not dwell too much on irrational clinging
to unhelpful traditions and unhelpful religions.
Basically, what I say is that the African should basically start over. He should completely cancel his history (of which not much is said about and of
which not much led to the advancement of the human race) and then start over with some grand and magnificent values. Because right now, I do not at
all think that the African way of life is working. And giving aid fosters laziness and kills any hard-working persona. Constant aid is a handout and
excessive welfare. For a man to constantly feed himself, he must learn how to feed himself. If he is being constantly being fed by a third party, he
will never learn/never bother to learn to feed himself.
In short, there are hundreds of millions of people in this region - the potential to create a super race of Africans is too great. Petty corruption is
too ridiculous and stupid and harms the advancement of the African. Whilst Europe and America build space stations, many African countries still drive
around in old bangers from the 80s and don't contribute greatly to the advancement of the human race. This is not good. It is my belief, contrary to
popular belief, that the African can be one of the greatest peoples within the Human Race - but he must change his values. Clearly all of this
claptrap about "community" and whatnot has failed and only served well if in a state of stagnation and halting of development. Not now. Not when the
likes of China speed on to advancement. Not when the likes of the UAE, which has less oil than Nigeria alone, build skyscrapers daily.
