In life we choose how we want to live. I am a strong and firm believer of that. If you have been watching the news lately, South Africa has been disgracing themselves, so have a few other nationalities.
There is a special place in hell for people who cannot treat their fellow human beings with respect. Sad part is many of these people profess their love for God. If you cannot love a man whom you have seen how can you love a God you haven’t seen?
The violence against foreigners in South Africa is totally uncalled for. I keep saying something, a lot of African Monarchies are a burden on the systems they are intended to guard. A few weeks ago it was the Oba of Lagos, in recent times, its the Zulu king. These people need to start being punished for reckless endangerment of lives.
As for the South Africans, truly your liberation from apartheid wasnt by your will alone, it took combined efforts from many other nations. Show some gratitude in the least. Dont go about killing people who have done nothing to you. Immigrants havent failled you, its your same system they come and exploit that has failed you. Keep in mind many South African owned businesses thrive in Nigeria- if we all carried on the same way, these businesses wouldnt thrive and lives would also be endangered.
Imagine my bewilderment when i heard about Christian vs Muslims in the open seas? The other week it was Muslims throwing Christians overboard while crossing in fishing boats to Europe. Even the Europeans were more humane to those arriving by boat than they were to themselves – fellow migrants. You truly start to wonder if this issue is one of black and brown people.
Of all this, one this I do know for certain is that killing another human being under the assumption that they have taken your opportunities is absurd. If you were able to utilise that opportunity well, the person wouldnt have come in and created it.
Folks need to stop the bullsh*t and own up for their own personal failures as adults. To the Zulu king – he has failed himself and his constituents. To the murderers they have failed themselves and future generations. To anyone propagating Religion in these environments- you have failed the same God you attempt to worship.
Lets cut the chase and say no to Xenophobia. Boycotting South African owned businesses in Nigeria is not the answer either as these companies provide employment for millons of Nigerians and provide us with services we need ir want.
THE ANSWER IS TOLERANCE! I challenge myself and everyone else to attempt to love the human being which they have seen before propagating how much we love God. Lets start from there, its really basic. Practice basic love, teach your children basic love and tolerance.
A thought for you- are brown and black people more prone to senseless violence? Half of the Middle East is in chaos, Africa- almost in its entirety is a perceived war zone. Just thinking out loud.
