This is a great example of the nonsense Europeans brought to Africa. And as a result of colonalism, this sick mindset was absorbed into African culture as custom/tradition. But quite frankly it is nothing more than supertision[sp]. This practice has NEVER brought back the dead, have never perform a good. The only thing it has done is pulled Africans even more back in primitive and backwards thinking. And what' so disturbing is Europeans used this psychological tool to control and gain power.

I am thrilled that these idiots were prosecuted for this gruesome crime, I only regret that it was not life without the possibility of parole. However, Europeans may have manipulated Africans psychologically with concepts of superstition, I don't believe that Africans' belief in witchcraft and superstitions did not exist before Europeans. Witchcraft and sorcery was already highly ingrained in many African cultures for centuries before the slave trades, although I doubt that the heinous...

Witchcraft and soccery[sp] derived from the darkest pit of Europe....not Africa. It is the Europeans who brought this mindset to Africans [in 6th century-during the same time Arabs began invading North Africa and brought with them the originally slave trade]]. Although Africans had their own form of spirit-seeking....it is much like that of Native Americans. I think the term is animist or something to that order. Worshipping multiple gods i.e. omnigod. It is absolutely a myth that Africans,...

Lemme say this...if the "root" witchcraft was derived from Africa[with all its deadly connoctions and spells]...first! The Arab Slave Trade would not have existed and have lasted for over 1400 years. I mean if in fact voodou/witchcraft HAD any power. Those semites would have NEVER went back across the Red Sea. Secondly, if the first prevented the invasion of not only the Arab Slave Trade but the crusades of both Islam and Christianity....there wouldn't have been the Atlantic Slave Trade...

By the way....the reason I went into a historical rant is because I grow tired of folks thinking that this backward barbaric form of worship comes from Africa. Every time someone says voodou, witchcraft and Africa, it is an assumption that all three go together and it doesn't. Just like colonalism has a long term affect on Africans and their ancedents throughout the world, the same can be said of these dark images of spiritual worship. I don't like it. Yes, these things are now practiced in...

When You Kill Ten Million Africans You Aren’t Called ‘Hitler’

When You Kill Ten Million Africans You Aren’t Called ‘Hitler’ By Liam O'Ceallaigh On 22 December 2010 · 147 Comments Take a look at this picture. Do you know who it is? Most people haven’t heard of him. But you should have. When you see his face or hear his name you should get as sick in your stomach as when you read about Mussolini or Hitler or see one of their pictures. You see, he killed over 10 million people in the Congo. His name is King Leopold II of Belgium. He “owned” the Congo...

Not too much talk about this MONSTER. And he was a liar too. Pretending to help Africans. He was a greedy bastard who destroyed millions of unsuspecting blackfolks. But no ever one bothers to bring his name up...not even black rightists. Next to him? Hilter is a kindergartener....but! I forgot. He merely murdered black people....not like HIlter who killed white Jews. My bad. I guess there won't be thousands of movies about this holocaust. Right? But!

http://digitaljournal.com/blog/11297 Thank you for bringing out this atrocity. Who else but the victims of genocide will tell the facts of mass butchery? Armenians have spoken on and on about the genocidal savagery of the Turks who regularly deny it to this day. Germans seemed to miss cattle trains and trains and trains of Jews sent to slaughter. Some say it never happened. Euro-Americans folks in the US seem oblivious to the holocaustic suffering inflicted upon enslaved American and their...

Wow! This seems beyond macabre to read. Black people don't get bothered by white people fucking with them. We've been suffering their abuse over here forever and a day. We're more like white people over here than black people. I've NEVER seen an African in my life besides what's on YouTube and Television and Nelson Mandela and his wife on TV too. We're a bunch of black sick puppies, have always been and will always be. Black women walking around in PLATINUM WIGS. There's not much weirder...
