I seriously doubt that the Good Carpenter is happy with those vainly calling themselves Christians but acting like insatiably starved wolves set loose on a sea of new-born lambs, asserts Akinyi Princess of K’Orinda-Yimbo who is currently publishing her 2nd book titled DARKEST EUROPE & AFRICA’S NIGHTMARE A Critical Observation Of The Neighbour Continents.

I came to know of Princess Akinyi from her well researched assertive yet eye opening observation ‘Pink Declines Whiteness‘. A journey from the beginning of the 13th century where a certain Wolfram von Eschenback of Germany created the image of the so-called noble Moor as a knight full of virtues, courage and a ripe fruit of faithfulness.Those were the days before Africans were classified as “heathen” and “black”. It is a mind opener into the misplaced and misrepresented history of Africans. At one point she poses, When and how did Afroancestrals “officially” become “blacks”? And when did Europeans stop referring to themselves simply as Christians in “Christendom”?.

“Moor girl under the magic tree” by an unknown painter, 1944. The African woman, in Euroancestral eyes, is always a seductress with her mysterious sexuality.

While giving an introduction to her upcoming book, Darkest Europe & Africa’s Nightmare, Her principle is that on which the United States of America was based: All men are created equal. Then, she argues, how come the West preaches democracy but behaves very undemocratically when their “interests” are at stake? The Western citizenry have been schooled to think that their countries are wealthy because of the sweat of their brows or their brains – a deliberate belief to support hegemonic delusions. The truth, the author maintains, is that they are rich because they have robbed and still rob their wealth from the rest of the world, creating the “poor countries” who should not be poor at all. The world has enough resources for twice the present world population to live on very comfortably. American and European corporations whisk away Africa’s resources to enrich their own economies and peoples. The West “gets rid of” African leaders who, to quote Henry Kissinger, are not “our son of a bitch”.
