2020 has been the year where almost everyone lays blame for their misfortunes. Regardless of the pandemic, there are people who minted billions in various means attached to the Covid-19. We have the Internet giants who apparently became double their worth. We could see Amazon enhancing transactions online, an avenue that was before thought to be filled with degenerates across the globe. I in particular have found a fat cow in the writing industry where apparently the Internet is involved. Before the work-from-home, it was as if people in my line of work were just invincible in the sense that the white-collared thought themselves better as they had a baseline and claimed that we did not pay tax. This was an attribute that troubled my thoughts as this was where i had found my pot of gold, yet the rigid system denied me the freedom to express my talent to the larger global audience. It being 2021, am looking forward to claiming that pot the government having put us in the tax bracket.
This past 2020 has been full of realities. It started with the campaign against police brutality where one George Floyd (May his soul Rest in Peace) was killed by a police officer in the middle of a street. Apparently, the officer made bail and is out in the streets. One would wonder how the Justice system of a 1st world country is literally in the gutter. Leave alone our own judicial systems that younglings’ desire to graduate in LLB only to find themselves in a cobweb that dictates their responses to the injustices that haunt the corridors of Justice. With the global response to the brutality, the world saw the unity of the black community; a stance that initiated a campaign that fought for the right of the black person. The feedback was positive as even Africa’s heartbeat could be felt across the world (A rare engagement). Those who lean on conspiracy could claim that the dreaded virus was a target for the Motherland. However, if that was the intention, those behind the puppets should call this Corona off, regardless of how mighty they could have become on their stay on this earth.
Now, with Africa, there have been efforts made by the Pioneer Pan Africanist who aimed at diverging Africa’s attention through the slavery chapter. They fought for the independence of the African man from oppression, and they won our independence from our white masters. This has been a victory that is almost blinding us in this new decade. If it were slaves, the Americans were still in bondage for three years in Japan. Why don’t we hear them complaining of slavery as much as the Black person smears the tag? I saw them in bondage, what happened to us was beyond any human understanding. They put chains through our legs and arms, sank hot metal deep into our black skins. It is a shame to them to date. I would find it a heavy burden to a white person born after 1990 being troubled by what they ancestors did based on the fact that the black community has refused to move on from this catastrophe to date.
The Japanese held the soldiers who were caught during the World War 2 with the intent of them building a railway track, which they built with the help of the Indians. I saw their figures then and believe you me, they were frames of a human person with skin covering their insides, which drew out their ribs, hips, cheekbones, knees, and their ankles. So, my Black brothers and sisters, appreciate that our ancestors built those who dub themselves First World. Maybe it will happen in retrospect and us of African descent will inherit the land of Canaan. It being the second day of 2021, it would be my humble decree that all world leaders come together and preach peace and unity, and advocate for engagement of the now elite African (Like Myself). In any case, Happy 2021 people!
