It’s no secret that most native Chinese see Africans, and blacks in general, as inferior. The dynamics of that sentiment are numerous and I won’t go into them, but China itself seems to be building policy around that general concept.
The approach seems to be, “Africa isn’t doing anything with all that land, so we will. Nobody there will be able to resist us because we’re offering things they don’t have in return.”
From a This London article:
In short, they’ve already raped most of China’s environment, and now they’re moving into Africa with very little resistance and establishing a new home base.
Not like they’re using the stuff, right? Goodness…
It’s genius, really. They’re aggressively colonizing Africa right in front of the world, but nobody is talking about it, let alone doing anything about it. Africa is becoming an extension of China, and all the West can do is watch.
The West has sent billions of dollars to try and jump-start the continent from within, and it was, for the most part, squandered. China says, “fuck this”, and just moves over there and starts taking over. They’re basically enslaving Africans to work them, while maintaining separation between themselves and the natives.
The Real Question
So what should the West do about this? Do we just watch as perhaps the biggest threat of the next 20 years basically annexes a continent, takes over it’s resources, and wage-slaves its population?
Think of the power they’ll gain by essentially owning Africa and everything in it. They’re going to build an entire extension of China. They’re basically spinning up a new Chinese state. Over a quarter million Chinese have already moved, and many, many more are going.
The reality we need to grasp is that China doesn’t care about anyone but themselves. They will pillage anyone and everyone to get ahead, and Africa is an easy target. We need to decide what to do about it. Do we:
Try and oppose their incursion, or…
Realize that this isn’t likely and go on a land-grab ourselves
Option 2 isn’t really an option. Africa is wise to white people coming in and offering shiny stuff. But evidently they haven’t figured out that China will be even worse. The door is mostly shut to the West doing what China is doing at this point; it’s too politically hot to try and replicate their move.
And China knows this.
So I guess we just watch as China becomes infinitely more prosperous, and establishes a new military stronghold in Africa. Great. I wonder if Rosetta Stone has a Mandarin course…:
