(PRWEB) June 15, 2004 -- Proudly declaring himself a "Capitalist Nigger", Chika Onyeani is sick and tired of black people being sick and tired. In chapter after chapter of his book, "Capitalist Nigger," he looks at black people and finds them wanting.
In this no-holds-barred book, which excels as an explosive and jarring indictment of the Black race, Onyeani asserts that the Negroid race, as naturally endowed as any other, is culpably a non-productive race. "The Black race," the book charges, "is a consumer race and depends on other communities for its culture, its language, its feeding, and its clothing. Despite enormous natural resources, Blacks are economic slaves because they lack the "devil-may-care" attitude and the "killer-instinct" of the Caucasian, as well as the spider web economic mentality of the Asian."
At a time when Indians and the Pakistanis have both detonated the atom bomb, when China is providing the technology for quick acceleration of launching satellites into orbit, Africans still don't have the capacity even to refine their oil for themselves."
Dr. Onyeani is equally disdainful of blacks on this continent, noting, "In Black America today, the situation is the same as in Africa. Blacks make up the second-largest group of Americans. Economically, Black American communities are under occupation by others.
I have been spending a lot of time lately in Harlem - the so-called capital of Black America. Boasting about such a place as a capital of Black America is one of the greatest insults that could be bestowed on African-Americans. It is an insult. From the hub of Harlem, 125th Street, you can understand what I am saying. Here is a so-called capital of 36 million people. Going from one establishment to another in Harlem, all the people I saw behind the counter were not people of my color. Approximately 95% of the people who live in Harlem are Blacks. Conversely, only 10% of the buildings in Harlem are owned by Blacks." He is aghast at how other races and nationalities can pull themselves up by economic bootstraps, while black people remain consumers and not producers.
He finds that coming from the continent richest in natural resources, Africans cannot convert these resources into products. In fact, the Africans themselves are used simply as another tool in extracting the raw materials and shipping them overseas where they are converted into products and devices that blacks buy, but do not make.
Using at times overly broad strokes, Dr. Onyeani excoriates the Black race, declaring it stupid, saying that it needs to change or forever be condemned to a life of servitude and to eventually watching the race fade away
"The collective irresponsibility of a race is what is so astonishing. Europeans came to Africa in the 1600s. They had already possessed the gun. Black people were still using the bow and arrow. Millions of Black people were killed and millions more were taken as prisoners. They were brought as slaves to the shores of America.
We have just entered the 21st century. The intelligence of a race comes into question when, after more than 500 years, the descendants of the people who were conquered still rely on the same enemy who killed millions of their people and took millions prisoners and slavesÂ .If I were a Caucasian, I would find it quite comical that these dumb-assed idiots are incapable of learning a lesson or two since the first Spanish armada landed in Africa."
"The authentic education of the African will start not just with changing the historical, cultural, political and economic history books of our schoolsÂ . Our authentic education will start when we endeavor to produce the goods we consume; our authentic education will start when we start parallel organizations to the Europeans, Japanese and Caucasian Americans and stop the dependency mentality." The subtitle of the book is The Road to Success - The Spider Web Doctrine. This is the notion that when money enters the community's economic web, it does not leave.
Onyeani puts the responsibility for the change on the man in the mirror and slaps him around enough to shake him out of it and make him think, which is always a good start.
Thanks, I needed that.
