Donald J. Trumps Definition of “Shithole”Country, Reveals To The World Civilization Is At Base…Only Cyclical! Say’s Andy Akporugo Jr
For the President of a country to use such vulgarity as “shithole” to describe other countries, adds one more piece of evidence to my belief that civilization is at base, only cyclical. The days are going fast that we are star struck on beholding the American President. We are going back where we all started; a place in fact, which we never truly left!
When we soberly contemplate it, we may find that the primordial tendencies that handed us our most distinguished herdsman are very similar to those that foist the most uncouth form of our humanity on us, as world leader.
Truly, when all pretences to civilization are dropped, we may have to hold mirrors to beasts, to understand ourselves better!
See Donald J Trumps definition of “shithole”country status:
1) Your leaders steal your money and hide it in other countries
2) Your children can’t find jobs so they cross the desert, get sold as slaves or make it to the Ocean and cross in dinghies get to Europe to do menial jobs.
3) Your citizens are embroiled in vicious community , tribal and religious killing and the government is helpless.
4) Your institutions don’t work, corruption is celebrated.
5) Religion is the drug your citizens use to calm themselves and attack each other.
6) Life is short and bitter.
7) Your citizens enjoy luxury goods and produce nothing.
😎 Politics is do or die and the party in power absorbs every thief because each man wanna chop.
😎 Nothing works in your country except faith.
10) Your sisters dominate the prostitution trade in far away lands and excel in “juju” bondage.
11) Workers salaries are not paid, and state governors are arrogant.
If your country fits this bill then you are from a SHITHOLE country, face the truth and make it better . Stop blaming other country leaders.
Remember, as a migrant (whether you are first or second or third …..or x generation migrants) you can’t escape your (African) identity. Change your accent and inflections, bleach your skin, live in a predominantly “white” neighborhood, send your children to Ivy league schools, marry a white man or woman, steal money from your country and live large in Europe or the Americas e.t.c, you still would not escape your identity. You will always be the outsider from a ”shit hole” country. Your respect is tied to the respect of the average citizen of your country. You are the average African. And for now, the identity of average African does not command respect around the world.
You have only one option: fix it! You are the richest in terms of solid minerals and other resources, people from dry lands should not refer to your home as a “shit hole”. If you get angry with Donald Trumps disrespect, channel your anger appropriately. Use that anger to unseat leaders who steal your money and cause you shame around the world. Your problem is not the ignorant Donald Trump, your problem is your leaders.
