Did you know that the richest person of all time… was black?
The richest & most powerful king that ever lived, was black. He controlled most of the worlds gold and had an army of the likes only seen under Aragorn (King Elessar) in The Lord Of The Rings. Hell, the size of his army might even have inspired the scale of the armies of Middle Earth… To quote Money Magazine on Mansa Musa Keita the 1st:
Wealth: Richer than anyone could describe
Mansa Musa, the king of Timbuktu, is often referred to as the wealthiest person in history. According to Ferrum College history professor Richard Smith, Musa’s west African kingdom was likely the largest producer of gold in the world—at a time which gold was in especially high demand.
Just how rich was Musa? There’s really no way to put an accurate number on his wealth. Records are scarce, if non-existent, and contemporary sources describe the king’s riches in terms that are impossible for the time.
Some tales of his famous pilgrimage to Mecca—during which Musa’s spending was so lavish that it caused a currency crisis in Egypt—mention dozens of camels each carrying hundreds of pounds of gold. (Smith says one year of Malian gold production probably generated about a ton.) Others said Musa’s army consisted of 200,000 men, including 40,000 archers—troop numbers even modern superpowers would have a difficult time bringing to the field.
But to get caught up in the king’s exact wealth is to miss the point. As Rudolph Ware, an associate professor of history at the University of Michigan, explains, Musa’s riches were so immense that people struggled to describe them.
‘This is the richest guy anyone has ever seen, that’s the point,” says Ware. “They’re trying to find words to explain that. There are pictures of him holding a scepter of gold on a throne of gold holding a cup of gold with a golden crown on his head. Imagine as much gold as you think a human being could possess and double it, that’s what all the accounts are trying to communicate.’
When no one can even comprehend your wealth, that means you’re pretty darned rich.”
This man was richer than Gates, Rockerfeller & Carnegie. Richer than the Rothschilds…
We always wonder why nations acted in concert to bring Africa to its knees… Here it is. It was simpley to capture our wealth.
It is then not that far fetched to see how the wealth acquired by the oligarchs that control the factories where Africas resources are turned into products is directly proportional to the poverty in Africa.
The wealth of Africa is never really put into context. Its always obscure & blase blase intangible… By seeing this comparison of the wealthiest people of all time, we can now determine that Africas combined wealth could count for at least a 3rd of the global GDP if left to flourish… at the very least. An argument could be made for half.
Also by looking at the way women of all persuasions tan their skin, enlarge their breast & get buttock enhancements… we can conclude that even the African female form was deemed as a treasure and was & is the most desired.
Now contrast that with the Africa you know and the way African women are treated & we see a picture of a people decimated in the name of lust, greed & jealousy.
Now Im sure you are thinking ‘That sounds a lil far fetched & a bit mean. No one would go out of their way to pick on an entire peoples. Right?’
Normally you would be right. But you forget that like the conquests of Genghis Khan & the rest, the conquests of the Roman Empire & then their later form as the British Empire, were also about dominance. The dominion of the Anglo-Saxon-Roman nation over all others. And like rape is about dominance, so was enslavement & the plundering of Africas resources.
To put it into context: conquesting nations, like rapists, capture their victims violently or by seduction. They then force themselves onto & into her and then use her until she is spent. Once they are done with her, they then leave her broken to pick up the pieces or kill her to cover their tracks.
This was the fate of #Africa.
You see, in order to acquire the wealth of this all powerful people from this abundantly rich & fertile land and in order to create the imbalanced socio economic society we have where 1 man can have a higher net worth than a whole country & a handful of men can control most of the resources of the world, war was waged on Africa by the nations of Europe & her kings were slain.
Her peoples were enslaved, our cultures were perverted, our knowledge was cencored & our history was supressed. Africa and her peoples were dominated & decimated. We were left for dead, to watch as Africa is raped over & over again.
This is capitalism at full tilt ladies and gentlemen. Of course the Rothschilds did turn around and do this to the rest of the world too, by creating & then capitalizing on the “money”/banking system. But the 1st victim of capitalism, was Africa.
So maybe we should start walking with a little more surety going forward. Maybe we should try speaking with a little more conviction from now on. We are not descended from slaves, my black people… we are descended from kings!
Maybe, just maybe, if we were to cultivate the African economy (Gadaffi’s gold backed African currency idea was actually a good one btw) and create & share a free quality and high grade education system… maybe we can regain control of our destiny.
Imagine what we could accomplish if we Africans all banded together? After all… once upon a time, we lowkey ruled the world.
