“There are no Successful Black Nations”

Blacks will never be respected and will remain “undignified” because they have never created a single viable nation state, Nigerian-born Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Chigozie Obioma, has announced.

Writing in the Foreign Policy journal, Obioma said that “no one will talk about the painful fact that most African and Caribbean nations have either failed or are about to collapse.”

There are no succesful black nations1

In the article, titled “There are no successful black nations,” Obioma argued that as long as “Africans continue to ignore Africa’s continuous wallowing in senseless poverty and destructive failures, as long as the Congolese or the Haitian remains the poster child for poverty and lack, we [blacks] will remain undignified.”

The “indignity and helplessness of blacks in America won’t end until we have a first-world African nation to lift up our people,” he says.

Of course, Obioma makes the obligatory accusations against white people for causing African ineptitude through “colonization.”

This commonly-used false argument ignores the historical reality that large parts of Europe were invaded and colonized by nonwhite Huns, Mongols, Moors, and Ottoman Turks centuries before Europeans explored Africa.

Inexplicably—in terms of the “colonization destroys us” argument—the mass nonwhite invasions of Europe did not seem to perpetually cripple all European people.

Obioma does however declare in his article that this “colonization” argument is “only a part of the cause.”

Rather, he goes on to say, the real reason why blacks have no “dignity” is simply because they have been unable to produce any first world nation or infrastructure—ever.

Calling it the “worldwide indignity of the black race,” he points out that anyone of any other race pointing out the total failure of blacks to produce anything is subjected to attack and dismissed as “racist.”

This has resulted in the fact that although everyone knows all black nations are hopeless wrecks, no one dares say so.

Black elites and activists across the world have adopted a culture of verbal tyranny in which they shut down any effort to reason or criticize us or black-majority nations by labeling such attempts as “racism” or “hate speech.”

Thus, one can be certain that any suggestions that our race may indeed need to do something to remedy our situation will not be aired—not by the terrified people of other races.

Therefore, Obioma says:

No one will talk about the painful fact that most African and Caribbean nations have either failed or are about to collapse.

Great men like Marcus Garvey, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Malcolm X all knew that a people is only respected when it has a nation worthy of respect.

A man who lives in a shack cannot expect to be treated with respect at a palace.

They knew that for us to reclaim power we must first reclaim dignity and that this comes through the construction of a solid black state with a demonstrable level of development and prosperity—and which can stand as a powerful advocate for the global black.

Today, no such state exists.

He then goes on to list some of the disaster black states by name, starting off with his country of birth, Nigeria:

Nigeria, the most populous black nation on Earth, is on the brink of collapse.

The machineries that make a nation exist, let alone succeed, have all eroded.

A culture of incompetence, endemic corruption, dignified ineptitude, and, chief among all, destructive selfishness and greed has played a major role in its unravelling.

The same, sadly, can be said for most other African nations.

States like Zimbabwe, Cameroon, and Equatorial Guinea are farcical democracies ruled by men who exclusively cater to their interests and those of their clipped circles.

Obiamo then goes on to admit that the primary reason for the invasion of Europe and America by millions of blacks is because their own nations are self-inflicted disaster zones:

Thus, it is no surprise that in the absence of any healthy black nation—in the midst of chaos, senseless wars, corrupted religiosity, violence, and economic collapse—African and Caribbean people leave home en masse.

They beg on the streets of Greece, prostitute in the red-light zones of the Netherlands, and make up 40 percent of the migrants flocking to Europe.

He admits that the blacks “turn up” in European countries “helpless, unwanted, starved, or maimed.”

This is why, Obiamo says, Africans are looked down upon—because they are so patently helpless. He writes:

Everywhere from Ukraine to India, nearly every day, black indignity, black helplessness, stares us in the face.

In response, he goes on, all blacks do is shout “racism” at everyone, instead of actually trying to create something of which they can be proud.

And all we do, we who hold the platform can do, is scream “racism!” and court the sympathy of others.

If we, black people everywhere, cannot gather the resources within our powers to exert real changes and restore our dignity, we will continue to be seen as weak.

Our protestations and grievances will be met with sympathy, which does nothing to inspire respect.

Black elites should allow for self-criticism and soul-searching and for the restoration of the Pan-Africanist movement with an eye toward building sustainable black nations.

As long as we continue to ignore Africa’s continuous wallowing in senseless poverty and destructive failures, as long as the Congolese or the Haitian remains the poster child for poverty and lack, we will remain undignified.

As long as we continue to ignore our own self-assessment and soul-searching, we will remain the undignified race.

  1. Fantastic that a black man of authority is saying what everyone knows but no one has been allowed to mention without cries of `racist` raining down.. How sickening that so many people both white and black, who could and should have been as upfront, open and honest as this courageous gentleman, have spent years denigrating we whites for the shortcomings of the blacks.
    Wallowing in self-pity for so many years with movements such as` Black Lives Matter` etc, and being championed by those sanctimonious whites who make a living out of racist causes, exactly how do you put the genie back in the bottle ?

    1. As will be seen over on Breitbart London Black Lives Matter is just another offshoot of the Soros empire, now they’ve been hacked they are openly boasting of their ‘achievements including turning the educational system to being purveyors of socialism. As for this article, spot on, fortunately I’ve never been close enough to people who might deny it, to argue the cause. I’m kind of glad that I’m not long for this mortal coil, neither is Soros, unless they can keep him going with cryogenics, but the seeds he’s sown are going to need a hell of a lot of weed killer over a long period.

    1. No hold on. Those brothers can shonuff detail a car.
      Know what’s that all that about. Organization, cognitive abilities, bookkeeping, working on hot days – Ehra pass that malt liquor will ya

  2. Of course, Obioma makes the obligatory accusations against white people for causing African ineptitude through “colonization.”

    I’m so sick of the BS about European colonization around the world. Let’s be VERY honest. European colonization, especially in Africa in places like Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), South Africa and so on, afforded the Blacks a quality of life that they never could have achieved on their own. Just look at videos of old Rhodesia and then juxtapose that with images of black-ruled Zimbabwe today, which became famous for its worthless currency and the $1 trillion bill. Many Blacks in South Africa now openly admit they had a better life under apartheid (which was terribly misrepresented in the media) than with the ruling communist African National Congress. South Africa is a total disaster now.

    Haiti is a great example, too. The French originally colonized Haiti and built an amazing infrastructure and society there. Decades later, after a Black uprising, all the French who weren’t slaughtered left. At that point, the Blacks were in total control of a MADE country. They had nothing to create but to simply maintain the beautiful country they had in their hands, and it all went to hell very quickly. Eventually, the U.S. moved into Haiti and rebuilt the roads and the entire infrastructure once more. Years later, the Americans moved out. Once again, the Blacks were GIVEN a finished country and for the second time, it became a Third World hell hole. Dr. William Pierce has a great video online called The Lesson of Haiti that details the story.

    It all goes back to 150 years of research on Race, Evolution and Behavior. Dr. Phillip Rushton spells it all out in his excellent book of the same name. His presentations are online, too. The point is that Blacks haven’t produced a viable nation because they cannot. They must have an overseer as in colonization, otherwise, natural tendencies will take over every time. It amazes me that people looking at the issue, even Black people, can’t admit this now. Every White person could leave the planet and they’d STILL be using the excuse that because White people even existed at all is why they couldn’t produce a viable civilization or accomplish major achievements. It’s astounding, but being “undignified” and disrespected is the price of Blacks playing the victim and using the race card to avoid taking personal responsibility for their condition in life.

    1. There were of course several types of colonialism, you’ve mentioned some of the best examples, almost all British, a few reasonable French examples but the Belgians in the Congo, and the Germans in East Africa could hardly be held up as shining lights.

      1. There will always be exceptions in any situation, but in the vast majority of cases, even with the British in India, the existing inhabitants on the whole were provided with a vastly better way of life than was already in place. Even with regard to slavery, there were many, many slaves that ended up with a much better quality of life on U.S. plantations than they’d previously had in western Africa. They had a roof over their heads. Many were even allowed to raise their own livestock and sell their goods for income. Masters of plantations would invite all the slaves and their children up to the main house on Sundays so everyone, including the master and misses, could have dinner together. At that time, children were checked for illness so that the doctor could be called, if necessary. There were many benevolent plantation masters who afforded the slaves a much better life. This isn’t to advocate slavery but to show that the experience of the slaves was nowhere near the way it has been presented. In fact, after the South surrendered, countless freed slaves returned to their plantations and continued to work there for years until the plantation owners passed away. They didn’t do this just for money or to keep a roof over their heads, but because they had genuine relationships with the White families that ran those establishments. If life for slaves on the plantation was exactly as Hollywood portrays it, none of the slaves would have returned, but a great amount did. Meanwhile, the freed slaves who went to the North and were left to their own devices ended up starving and in abject poverty. You can read more about the real situation of the slaves in their own words in The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography, a 41-volume set of interviews with the last remaining slaves conducted in the early 20th century.

      2. With all due respect but the Germans started building up an Infrastructure, abolished the slave traffic at the east coast of today Tanzania and the Askaris showed there gratitude by fighting with the Germans until the end of WW1.
        As the Germans started pretty late with their colonial enterprise they hadn’t had the time to develop as much as the British and French.

  3. The problem ignored is that all the negative elements of the black person is actually in the DNA. There is no division (as Obiama suggests) between the elite and the masses in that regard.

  4. The first African independent state was Liberia. A former American “colony” created for slaves who had been freed over 100 years ago.
    Liberia remains a poverty stricken, crime ridden cesspool.
    The last state to attain majority rule was South Africa, the industrial giant of the continent which used to generate 70% of all electricity produced on the whole continent & which now suffers electricity blackouts on what is basically a rostered system. The economy is stagnating, corruption In high office is rampant, 50 + murders per day and infrastructure rotting from within. Don’t mention education or health standards!
    Obit a is quite right. The proof is there for anyone who is interested to research.

  5. Obioma has totally missed the point. Blacks are incapable of ever producing a first world state. What little they have is a result of white colinization. Without it they would just be where they where thousands of years ago. They didn’t even invent the wheel. When new tribes are discovered in the amazon jungle they are usually in a prehistoric state of ignorance not much above apes.

      1. Handouts, plain and simple. Take, take, take take and even more take. How many years is it that we’ve seen pictures of crying emaciated children pestered with flies all seriously in need of what? More and more and more handouts. Is this a recent phenomena? No, its been going on for ever! Certainly as far back as I can remember. Hundreds of charities have been formed in between whiles and their CEO’s have made millions.
        More handouts, more handouts, more and more handouts. A week doesn’t pass without more and more scenes of struggling Africans wanting? You’ve got it: more and more and more handouts. Now they are arriving in boat loads into Europe wanting? Yes, more and more and more handouts.

    1. Not god, but rather the Vatican and the Pope who does, and the only reason they do, is because they know it’s easier to convert poor uneducated people into the Catholic faith, than it is to keep trying with westerners, who they’ve already milked and abused. By doing this, it gives them the opportunity, the Pope that is, to dictate Gods will to them, and thereby deny them birth control, condoms for the protection from STD’s or family planning. However, at no time does the Vatican open its own bank to feed this fast growing population, or concern themselves over all those malnourished children. If there was a god, he/she would never allow this on such a massive scale.

  6. Finally an article that plainly says what I’ve always known. In all of recorded human history there has never been a black nation or civilization that even remotely approaches first world societies, and never have blacks been able to govern themselves on a scale greater than that of a tribe. Black states fail, every time. When they fail blacks flood into successful and prosperous first world states as parasites with a chip on their shoulder, blaming everyone else for their own failures. The same can be said of Muslims, and thus we have the current invasion of Europe and the rest of the first world by the masses of the failed states.

    1. Martina, the looming problem is that the influx will transform the accommodating EU and UK into Third World states as can be seen already in the UK’s and US’s ghettos. Unless the madness is halted soon and reversed pretty quickly there will be no spare cash for Governments to put into International Aid and the money donated by supporters of the charities will also dry up as indigenous peoples become poorer. This will mean that the invaders will have slowly but surely killed off the ‘money tree’ and that means, that the ‘hand out’ countries in Africa will suffer but with one big difference: there will (just like Africa and parts of the US) be no hope of being commercially successful again such that aid can be resumed. As the EU and the UK will be drained of benefits neither will the so-called refugees be receiving handouts. And so, the cycle goes on and on and on.

    2. Tribes are the best form of society, homogenous tribes as our own ancestors were, the Anglo-Saxons and other European peoples. Even the ancient Greek philosophers recognized that democracy only works with small, homogenous populations. Who needs large states?

  7. Strangely, no mention of the 70 to 85 IQ range deficit that is a MAJOR contributor for this disparity. Higher testosterone levels and lower impulse control don’t help matters either. Ain’t genetics and heredity a bitch?

  8. Oh come on you haters. You know, because negroes tell us over and over, that Africa was a paradise of gleaming cities before we, rotten evil to the core, whites showed our faces in Africa. They were inter galactic space travelers and Kings and Queens. We destroyed Africa and stole the plans of trains, planes, and automobiles from them! They even admit they were the original peeps of Europe and after they built our gorgeous castles and cathedrals we kicked them out. Jesus, Mozart, Michael DeAngelo and Shakespeare were all white too. If you don’t believe any of this, well, just axed them and they be tellin’ ya is jus be so truff.

  9. I am a white South African. Reading this actually makes me a little teary… It is soo nice to read something other than anti-white rhetoric around this topic! And then to Not read comments that (badly) try to refute the facts: Sheer bliss… It is mind-boggling that the average African Cannot make the connection between: I make a mess of things, hence I have a mess on my hands. It is always someone else’s fault… Great point about how Europe also suffered invasions! Now,how to go about making Prof. Abioma King of Africa…?

  10. Has anyone noticed how on TV and in movies black people are represented as super intelligent. How many black generals have we seen or scientists who always manage to save the world. I know most of them are Morgan Freeman but I am sure reality does not support this illusion. I saw a piece on REBEL media were they said that if you took tv as a guide you would think blacks made up 40% of the population instead of the 16% they actually are ( even less if you discount the prison population.

  11. Having lived through that nasty tertible apartheid regime where black people were suddenly brought from mud huts into the 1st world, suddenly introduced to electricity, cars, education etc ad nauseam. The simple question is…why not stay in their mud huts as they had for millenia before if it was so awesome? No…they loved the white world we created for them. Now they want it all so they can destroy it

    1. Steve, SA is the warning template for Europe. Problem is for the Islamicists and Blacks, where will they go after destroying Europe and the West? They’ll have ‘run out of road’ and every country previously advanced will be in a permanent state or ruin and financially broke.

  12. Nice write up. As a Nigerian and of the same Igbo tribe as the writer, I bet to disagree with some of his points.1) is the division of the contraption like Nigeria into small manageable entities, the case of Somalia cast some doubt in that argument.
    Somalia is made up of 85% ethnic Somalis, but have been embroiled in long term conflict.
    I strongly believe our problems as Africans are more genetic than external factor. It is indeed a hopeless situation.

  13. So, it sounds like the answer is something we’re already seeing, the merging of the races. By the time Captain Kirk arrives, he will be a blended human, smart and fast, with rhythm!!

    1. Fraid’ it’s the old expression, George, ‘You can take the blacks out of Africa, but you cannot take the Africa out the blacks’.
      Look how their slowly destroying South Africa and, as usual, they blame the white folk.

  14. Hi to everyone.I live in Ireland,and see whats going on on our streets. Of course,its not as bad as in Marseilles or Spanish border towns, but still. Blacks are on social welfare payments and playing the race card. Property prices are significantly lower, if they live nearby. But of course,mainstream media do not discuss situation,its all rosy and politically correct. Diversity, multi-culturalism and other BS. Funny enough,80% of Irish people admit they do not want any African/Arab immigration. The only people who support it(on TV anyway) are those who live in palatial estates, and never going to live with immigrants. Next 2-3 years would be highly entertaining in Europe. Have a nice day guys.
