Berlin 1884: The Conference That Divided Africa

Berlin 1884, African history
Berlin 1884 Conference
The colonizers sat in Berlin in Germany to divide Africa among themselves as their personal and private properties. This was done at their free will without the presence of any African.

They freely took away Africa's valuable resources such as Gold, Diamond, Bauxite to build their countries and economy without paying a penny to any African. After all, Africa was their property so whom were they to make payments to?

They took away from the African society, the most intelligent, the strongest, the most skilled, and the most healthy human capital and made them slaves to force them to give them all the inventions of our society.

They kept the remaining human capital on the African soil under the control they termed as colonization in order that this people can work on the mines and farms they have on the African Continent.

To ensure that, there is animosity between the African he kept at home and the African he took away across the Atlantic, and to ensure that the African never come together in unity to seek for their ultimate liberation, he has conjured a story that the African at home sold to him the African he took away; and when he come to the African at home, he tells him that the African he took away is lazy and for that matter he is jealous about the African at home when he travels to this new world he has built.

By this, the African at home sees the African he took away as his competitor, while the African he took away sees the African at home as a betrayed brother who is worse than the worse enemy. The African has once again become a victim of their common enemy and they are suffering from the burden of their own failure to see.

Oh, why can't the African see the mind playing game here, and he has fell a victim for the oppressor's lies. There is nothing on the African soil which these colonizers ever paid for, not even the least valuable object.
