They are again having the meeting of the G20 in the UK because of the perceived â€˜world economicâ€™ situation. Why call it â€˜world economicâ€™ situation when we do not have mortgage defaults in the developing world, called TOXIC DEBTS?
Once again, they are trying to confuse us all in the developing world with their supposedly â€˜knowledge of all on this earthâ€™. It is not so and we should not always be taken in because they are white folks and once our colonial masters hence must always be right!
After World War II, these people conveyed a meeting at Bretton Woods in the USA, where the present systems of financial institutions and structures were put I place. At the time, no black nation was represented despite the facts that these black nations or colonies provided over eighty percent of the worldâ€™s natural resources. Today, 2009, when these developing nations still provide most of the worldsâ€™ resources, none of them is present at this G20 meeting!
Leaders, or should I have said rulers, in the developing world, why are you not voicing your concern, at this treatment of second class citizenship by the blue eyed brigade of the world? Where will these G20 nations be if we do not supply them with the resources that have made them into the so-called G20 nations?
Our problem is the fact that we are not united because of corruptions. Before a vital vote in the UN, these G20 nations buy the votes of these developing nations, by offering them dollars for their votes; a good example was the votes for the invasion of Iraq! Right now, they have sent their representatives, the IMF and the World Bank to the developing world and, offering loans because they know that their economies will suffer!
Our economies are in perpetual suffering; our graduates are without jobs; our people are jobless and many of them have been jobless for many years. Yet, when they face what we have been going through since Independence, they ask their Federal and Central Banks to print money and lend it to the government. The IMF and the World Bank do not lend them money and ask for retrenchments because they are already fearful of that.
But when these two bodies, organs of the suppression of Africans and the people of colour come to us, they tell us we must have more unemployment and cut the civil service and social spending! Why have they not extended these advices to the so-called developed countries?
There is a hidden agenda against Africa and the people of colour! We must go back to the Christian religion to really understand the evolution of things as they are today. Egypt was the birth of the One God religion, The Sun. As history tells us, the Jews moved out of Egypt and went to Palestine.
During the expansion of the Roman Empire into Palestine and the subsequent inhuman treatment, doled out to the inhabitants, by the Roman Governor; and unable to comprehend what was happening to his people, a rebel emerged! That person was Jesus. He started organizing dissident groups (called disciples later) in total opposition to the Roman rulers of Palestine.
Also, as always, different forms of religious worship started manifesting in Jerusalem and the Christian was one of them. They were all trying to build their capacity and preached in such a manner as to attract as many followers as possible. The Roman rulers were opposed to these new developments and in trying to stop the spread of this religious opposition; it arrested Jesus and had him crucified, thinking it would put an end to the situation at hand. Fortunately for the Christians, Paul carried on where Jesus left off until one of the Roman Emperors was converted to Christianity.
The Christian religion now became the religion of the empire and that was how it spread to every nook and corner of the Roman Empire; this is also why the head of that religion is based in Rome up to this present day! The De Mediciâ€™s were the early Pope and that is how they are one of the richest families in Italy today. Differences built up in the Organisation because the wealth was not trickling down; this led to the split up of the Organisation.
Also, when Henry came into power as King of England, he did not wish to be dictated to from Rome hence abolished the religion in England and replaced it with the Church of England, because he was refused a divorce so he could marry a new wife.
I did not aim to go into all this detail but I had to let the reader know that the writer is writing factually. The point I had wanted to highlight is the fact that when one visits the Museum in Rome, there is a painting of the CREATION of us. In that painting, there were no Africans and Asians. God, Adam, Eve, et al, were and still are depicted as WHITE FOLKS! WE WERE NEVER IN THEIR PICTURE AND THAT IS STILL HOW IT IS TODAY!
Therefore, from the time the Egyptians civilization was surpassed by this new civilization, which grew from within Christianity, the white people have seen themselves as saviour of the rest of the world. This was why some of the slavers justified slavery because it was written in the Bible that the well to do must take care of those lacking.
We can also see how the USA intervenes all over the world, especially where they think their stability may be affected by events in those foreign places. They do these things through the IMF, World Bank, and the United Nations towards world domination! It, USA, wants to stay the worldâ€™s greatest power hence any challenge to its position is seen by them as a threat to the rest of the world and a threat to their national interest â€“ OIL!
That is the reason why they have tried to prevent whosoever they do not like from acquiring nuclear technology. These nations will be a position to retaliate if attacked by the west in an attempt to forcibly control their natural resources, be it manpower for cheap labour or for other commodities; this I believe is the hidden agenda so we need to open our eyes!
Do not allow foreign money to be used in your country, as it will undermine your own financial independence. Do not allow importation of goods that are easily available in your country and in doing that, you will not need foreign currency. You will be able to supply your own currencies for your commerce (STIMULATING YOUR ECONOMY) and ignore the advice of both the World Bank and the IMF because they do not want any good thing for black Africa!
Let us take the US dollar as an example. All the US governments from time immemorial have tried to project the currency as the best in the world. If that is accepted, it then becomes accepted that the USA is the best country in the world. In the age of the Empires, Africa was in complete isolation. Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, and later France, ruled the world. These peoples forced their languages, education, and currencies on their conquests and became the methods by which trades were carried out.
This was and still is part of their imposition of their nationalism on lesser nations. It therefore saddens me to see supposedly independent nations accept the dollar as their currency of choice for doing business in their own country, where is their nationalistic ethos that propelled them to independence nationhood? Unintentionally, these nations are undermining their own financial independence by allowing foreign currency as the currency of choice for international commerce in their countries!
African countries with natural resources in the form of commodities should not allow the so-called G20 countries to control the prices of those commodities. Farmers in the so called G20 countries are heavily subsidized by their governments and yet our farmers in the developing world are not allowed these subsidies, because the IMF and The World Bank say it would not stimulate production but instead encourage laziness.
Due to the heavily subsidized foreign products dumped onto our markets, prices for the locally produced goods are costlier; hence, our farmers lose out and get discouraged and disillusioned with farming! This is all as the result of IMF and World Bank interference in our economy; because the agenda is to prevent Africa from developing.
When we are given these loans with all the debilitating conditions attached, a few of the people at the top benefit and the rest are saddled with debts until their life time. Unborn children having to bear the burden heaped on these countries by the IMF, World Bank, and the corrupt political leaders, who have had some percentage of the loans paid into numbered foreign bank accounts!
Right now at this moment in our history, March 2009, there is a financial crisis in the developed world. Governments such as the United States of America, Great Britain, and France, have challenged the Swiss bankers to open their books for scrutiny. They suspect some of their citizens have billions in deposit in Swiss banks, which they have failed to declare for the purpose of taxations. One of the banks, UBS has promised to open its books to the western authorities but one wonders why they have not made the same gestures to the African countries.
We must implore the IMF, The World Bank, and the United Nation Assembly to force the Swiss Banks to release illegally acquired money, by the politicians and ex-politicians and top civil servants from Africa. The stolen money should be repatriated to the state of origin to alleviate the anticipated hardship in Africa and keep the IMF and the World Bank away from Africa! If they really want to help Africa, the west or so called G20 nations should force the Swiss banks to release all the monies belonging to present and past politicians held in their accounts.
They have in the past helped released Israelis assets hence I cannot envisage any problem unless they are not serious about helping Africa. We do not want the World Bank or IMF monies; we want our monies in secret foreign accounts, released to the countries of origins!
Our present leaders, those who are clean, must lead this action or crusade to break our dependency on the white folks or the west G20, if you prefer it that way. Domination is still the bottom line and we must not fool ourselves if we do not understand it is the objective â€“ source of cheap commodities and cheap labour when required. We must not be fools forever!

1. South Africa was represented alright but it was their finance minister who happens to be a white man!
2. I am a Deist and as such, cannot celebrate and claim the religions they have imposed on the people of colour. Religion was the instrument that was used to subjugate our people and paved the way for the transportation of our forefathers and mothers to the western world as slaves.
When religion was created by man, they never knew black people existed. This is why there is no picture of a black person in any paintings of the 'Creation' hanging in Roman Museums!
So please, let me put it straight, I am against all religions because they were invented to control the people, and Moslem religion was invented to stop the proposed expansion of the blue-eyed domination of the world!
We are ignoring the interest of our country for the interest of the developed world! You are in Texas, USA; why are you in Texas USA? You are there to facilitate the economy of that country.
Due to the bad advices given to African states in the past, we have not been able to develop our ECONOMIES in Africa. Because forced slavery was abolished, thereby depriving the west valuable manpower availability, they had to do something about the situation hence the reason why their advices have kept us poor in Africa!
The Africans therefore had no choice but to flee and come to the west voluntarily, which I refer to as 'voluntary slavery'. Why do you think the USA introduced Green Card lotteries and professional schemes for migrants? Because they need the manpower to keep their economies going! If by some chances African nations eradicate poverty, where would the west get their cheap labour from?
Before they started buying Nigerian oil, were we not existing? If we did not have oil, you mean we will cease to exist; is that what you are saying?
Black men that have ruled us in the past and present have been puppets of the white men. Why is it that our leaders are allowed to plunder the wealth of their countries and bring them to the west for the development of the west? Why have the west not arrested those leaders for money launderings?
They have not, because they are in collusion with them! Those that resisted were toppled by the CIA and the MI5, such as Kwame Ankruma, Patrice Lumumba, Abdel Nasser, Anwar Sadat, to name but a few.
The west needs Africa more than we need them and until our leaders understand that, we will never move forward. Our leaders have been abroad and they have seen how things are done, you mean they are stupid not to want the same for their people; of course not! You need to understand the ways of the west to understand why we are where we are and how we will forever be enslaved to these people.
They say ' Monkey See Moinkey Do '. Our leaders see but they NEVER DO, in that case, the monkey must be clever than our leaders unless there are external forces, which there are! If you are interested to find out, there are many mediums out there to enlighten you!
Lastly, why did the USA not ask IMF or the World Bank for loans to stimulate their failing economy? Why have we now gone again to the IMF for new loans when Obasanja just paid off our loan?
Because they want to keep majority of that loan in western banking system for safety, after their tenure of office! WE MUST UNDERSTAND THE SIMPLE FACT THAT ECONOMICS IS NOT A SCIENCE, IT IS AN ART!

They are members because of the stages of their economies not because of the colours of their skins. If we develop we will join them, if we don't, we will remain in the basement, begging for handouts.
We can't blame everything on the white man, when the black men that have ruled us (except for a few) and are ruling us, have done and are doing their best to make sure we remain permanently under-developed.
Last time I checked the following are the G-20 members.
Waka-about Texas, USA April 05, 2009
1) South Africa was at this G20 meeting and last time I checked it is a black nation 2) You condemn the policies of the developed world but celebrate and claim the religion (Christianity) that they imposed on "developing" nations. You can't pick and choose from these.
The "developed" nations need to learn that no country will ignore their interests and fight for the interests of another country. Life is not "charity", no matter how much we want to believe it. If developed countries want to be invited to "G20" then they should be able to offer something to the rest of the world and not be used only as dumping grounds.
For example, what can Nigeria offer to the world? Oil doesn't count because if they stop buying Nigeria's oil, Nigeria will be finished.
