YOU CAN'T DENY THIS
No OFFENSE. There is something wrong with white people. Not all, but a majority. If you look at history, once they get into powerful positions, they tend to want more power and oppress their fellow humans. All major wars in history have been instigated and fought by them. If you look at the history of the native americans, or the indians or the Africans, nothing close to the nature of caucasian people is found. They are natural trouble makers. I have tried to study many history books and I am disappointed at these people. They have evolved from monarchial governments into democracies. The former, being the best mode of governing, was corrupted by them to take advantage of people below them. The latter is the most evil and unjust, contrary to popular opinion, just look at the division it creates as opposed to a monarchy whereby, under desirable circumstances, the rulers rule for the benefit of all people.

I have found for example, that in Africa, prior to these people setting there, there were powerful kingdoms in different places. There were no wars or imperialism of any sort. Now that they have introduced democracy into those countries which the divided for themselves, they have ruined everything there. They turned africans against one another. They sold them weapons for this. One good example is the democratic republic of Congo. Many westerners sympathize with those people for killing one another but fail to realize that it is white europeans who instigated the rift.

They claim to be for freedom and justice, while killing people in their wars. They have been practically all over the planet conquering and displacing people. They don't seem to stop. When will the stop their imperialism under different guises? Their latest attempt is the ongoing financial breakdown, cleverly engineered by them in order to have a one world government. When will they stop? I know a majority of people reading this are caucasians. NO OFFENSE, I JUST HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH BEHAVIOR FROM ANY RACIAL GROUP, LENDING ME ABILITY TO CONCLUDE THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE CONGENITALLY UNFRIENDLY. I AM AWARE THERE ARE SOME INTELLIGENT KIND CAUCASIANS, I AM JUST SICK OF YOUR LEADERS LEADING THE WORLD ASTRAY FOR MILLENNIA.

Re: YOU CAN'T DENY THIS
How about cannibalism??? NOT FUN!

Nearly all the tribes in the Congo Basin either are or have been cannibals; and among some of them the practice is on the increase. Races who until lately do not seem to have been cannibals, though situated in a country surrounded by cannibal races, have, from increased intercourse with their neighbours, learned to eat human flesh.

Soon after the Station of Equator was established, the residents discovered that a wholesale human traffic was being carried on by the natives of the district between this station and Lake M'Zumba. The captains of the steamers have often assured me that whenever they try to buy goats from the natives, slaves are demanded in exchange; the natives often come aboard with tusks of ivory with the intention of buying a slave, complaining that meat is now scarce in their neighbourhood.

There is not the slightest doubt in my mind that they prefer human flesh to any other. During all the time I lived among cannibal races I never came across a single case of their eating any kind of flesh raw; they invariably either boil, roast or smoke it. This custom of smoking flesh to make it keep would have been very useful to us, as we were often without meat for long periods. We could, however, never buy smoked meat in the markets, it being impossible to be sure that it was not human flesh.

The preference of different tribes for various parts of the human body is interesting. Some cut long steaks from the flesh of the thighs, legs or arms; others prefer the hands and feet; and though the great majority do not eat the head, I have come across more than one tribe which prefers this to any other part. Almost all use some part of the intestines on account of the fat they contain.

A young Basongo chief came to our Commandant while at dinner in his tent and asked for the loan of his knife, which, without thinking, the Commandant gave him. He immediately disappeared behind the tent and cut the throat of a little slave-girl belonging to him, and was in the act of cooking her when one of our soldiers saw him. This cannibal was immediately put in irons, but almost immediately after his liberation he was brought in by some of our soldiers who said he was eating children in and about our cantonment. He had a bag slung round his neck which, on examining it, we found contained an arm and leg of a young child.

A man with his eyes open has no difficulty in knowing, from the horrible remains he is obliged to pass on his way, what people have preceded him, on the road or battlefield – with this difference: that on a battlefield he will find those parts left to the jackals which the human wolves have not found to their taste; whereas on the road, by the smouldering camp fires, are the whitening bones, cracked and broken, which form the relics of these disgusting banquets. What struck me most, during my expeditions throughout the country, was the number of partially cut-up bodies I found. Some of them were minus the hands and feet, and some with steaks cut from the thighs or elsewhere; others had the entrails or head removed. Neither old nor young, women or children, are exempt from serving as food for their conquerors or neighbours.

Sidney Langford Hinde (former captain of the Congo Free State Force), The Fall of the Congo Arabs, Methuen, 1897





The whole wide country seemed to be given up to cannibalism, from the Mobangi (a major tributary of the Congo) to Stanley Falls, for six hundred miles on both sides of the main river, and the Mobangi as well. Often did the natives beg Grenfell to sell some of his steamer hands, especially his coast people; coming from the shore of the great salt sea, they must be very ‘sweet’ – salt is spoken of as sweet, in the same way as sugar. They offered two or three of their women for one of those coast men. They could not understand the objections raised to the practice. ‘You eat fowls and goats, and we eat men; why not? What is the difference?’ The son of Matabwiki, chief of Liboko, when asked whether he ever ate human flesh, said: ‘Ah! I wish that I could eat everybody on earth!’ Happily his stomach and arm were not equal to the carrying out of his fiendish will.

Fiendish? Yet there is something free and lovable in many of these wild men; splendid possibilities when the grace of God gets a hold of them. Bapulula, the brother of that ‘fiend,’ worked with us for two years – a fine, bright, intelligent fellow; we liked him very much...




They divided up their human booty and kept them, tied up and starving, until they were fortunate enough to catch some more and so make up a cargo worth taking to the Mobangi. When times were bad, these poor starving wretches might often be seen tied up, just kept alive with the minimum of food. A party would be made up and two or three canoes would be filled with these human cattle. They would paddle down the Lulongo, cross the main river when the wind was not blowing, make up the Mobangi and sell their freight in some of the towns for ivory. The purchasers would then feed up their starvelings until they were fat enough for the market, then butcher them and sell the meat in small joints. What was left over, if there was much on the market, would be dried on a rack over the fire, or spitted, and the end of the spit stuck in the ground by a slow fire, until it could be kept for weeks and sold at leisure.

Sometimes a section of the people would club together to buy a large piece of the body wholesale, to be retailed out again; or a family man would buy a whole leg to divide up between his wives, children and slaves. Dear little bright-eyed boys and girls grew up accustomed to these scenes from day to day. They ate their own morsels from time to time, in the haphazard way that they have, and carried the rest of their portion in their hands, on a skewer or in a leaf, lest anyone should steal and eat it. To this awful depth have these children of the Heavenly Father fallen! This is no worked-up picture, it is the daily life of thousands of people at the present time in Darkest Africa.

Rev. W. Holman Bentley (Baptist Missionary Society), Pioneering on the Congo, TRS, 1900 (2 vols.)





The Bambala, these missionaries found, regarded as special delicacies human flesh that had been buried for some days; also a large, thick, white beetle grub found in palm trees... and human blood boiled with manioc flour. The women of the tribe were forbidden to touch human flesh, but had found many ways of circumventing the tabu, and were particularly addicted to human flesh, extracted from graves and in an advanced state of decomposition.

Garry Hogg, Cannibalism and Human Sacrifice, p. 114





For various reasons, the custom was kept secret, and even members of the [Bagesu] tribe were not permitted to look on during the ceremony, which was performed by night. Yet the custom was known to all, and each family was aware of what was going on, though they never sought to watch their neighbours' doings.

When a man died, the body was kept in the house until the evening, when the relatives who had been summoned gathered for the mourning. In some exceptional instances it took one or two days to bring the relatives together, but as a rule all was ready by the evening of the day of death, and at sunset the body was carried to the nearest waste ground and deposited there. At the same time, men of the clan hid themselves in different places round about and, as darkness deepened, they blew upon gourd horns, making a noise like the cry of jackals.

The villagers said that the jackals were coming to eat the dead, and the young people were warned not to go outside. When darkness set in, and it was felt to be safe to work without intrusion from inquisitive onlookers, a number of elderly women relatives of the dead man went to the place where the body lay, and cut it up, carrying back the pieces they wanted to the house of mourning, and leaving the remains to be devoured by wild animals.

For the next three, or sometimes four, days the relatives mourned in the house in which the death had taken place, and there they cooked and ate the flesh of the dead, destroying the bones by fire and leaving nothing. There was no ‘purification,’ or ‘shaving’ when this mourning was ended; sometimes an ox was killed for a feast when the heir was announced, but as a rule the people simply returned to their ordinary life without any ceremony. The widows, however, burned their grass girdles, and either went about naked or wore the small aprons used by unmarried girls.

John Roscoe, The Bagesu and Other Tribes of the Uganda Protectorate, The Royal Society, 1924





Innumerable acts of cannibalism have been reported from time to time by both Belgians and French, the most recent of which I have actual knowledge being the waylaying by a party of Azande of a Belgian Officer proceeding on leave from the Lado Enclave (now Western Mongolla); they tore him limb from limb and ate him raw. This occurred twelve years ago...

This is a portion of a book written by Godfrey Higgins in the 19th century


"The religion of Buddha, of India, is well-known to have been
very ancient. In the most ancient temples scattered throughout
Asia, where his worship is yet continued, he is found black as jet, with
the flat face, thick lips, and curly hair of the Negro. Several statues
of him may be met with in the Museum of the East-India Company.
There are two exemplars of him brooding on the face of the deep,
upon a coiled serpent. To what time are we to allot this Negro?
He will be proved to have been prior to the god called Cristna. He
must have been prior to or contemporaneous with the black empire,
supposed by Sir William Jones to have flourished at Sidon. The
religion of this Negro God is found, by the ruins of his temples and
other circumstances, to have been spread over an immense extent of
country, even to the remotest parts of Britain, and to have been professed
by devotees inconceivably numerous. I very much doubt ....."

Human sacrifice is the act of killing human beings as part of a religious ritual (ritual killing). Its typology closely parallels the various practices of ritual slaughter of animals (animal sacrifice) and of religious sacrifice in general. Human sacrifice has been practiced in various cultures throughout history. Victims were typically ritually killed in a manner that is supposed to please or appease gods, spirits or the deceased, for example as a propitiatory offering, or as a retainer sacrifice when the King servants die in order to continue to serve their master in the next life. Closely related practices found in some tribal societies are cannibalism and headhunting. By the Iron Age, with the associated developments in religion (the Axial Age), human sacrifice was becoming less common throughout the Old World, and came to be widely looked down upon as barbaric already in pre-modern times (Classical Antiquity). Blood libel is a false charge of ritual killing against such taboos.

Even if not ostensibly connected with religion, infliction of capital punishment is often highly ritualised and thus difficult to distinguish from human sacrifice. Death by burning historically has aspects of both human sacrifice (Wicker Man, Tophet) and capital punishment (Brazen bull, Tamar, tunica molesta). Execution by burning of Christian heretics was introduced by Justinian I in the 6th century. Detractors of the death penalty may consider all forms of capital punishment as secularized variants of human sacrifice.[1] Similarly, lynching, pogroms and genocides are sometimes interpreted as human sacrifice following Theodor W. Adorno.[2]

In modern times, even the once ubiquitous practice of animal sacrifice has virtually disappeared from all major religions (or has been re-cast in terms of ritual slaughter), and human sacrifice has become extremely rare. Most religions condemn the practice, and present-day secular laws treat it as murder. In the context of a society which condemns human sacrifice, the term ritual murder is used.

Nonetheless it is still occasionally seen today, with reports from the 2000s from India and Sub-Saharan Africa (muti killings), but also isolated cases in the immigrant African diaspora in Europe.[3][4]

Re: YOU CAN'T DENY THIS
I don't support this racist mongering and baiting on GLP.

Races should NEVER be blamed or responsible for anything. Culture should be. Genetics or biology possibly too.

But PIGMENTATION and our visual perception of it is a false paradigm. It's a weak argument. Look beneath those layers, and you will see the truly responsible agents & machinery that cause the destruction of humanity.

It is the LEADER and the Group Hive Mentality that is responsible for that shit. The leader may happen to use "race" as a bonding quality to congregate people towards a common destructive purpose.

It is never a black/white/asian thing.

It's a culture thing. Culture is not your friend. Culture is passed down information from previous generations, whether true or false.

Your ideas, insights and knowledge is interesting, OP, when you read african history, what you said is true. Africa had kingdoms, universities, and was incredibly wealthy, and then other countries went in and pillaged the place, burnt down the schools, teachers, kings, queens etc...

The people who destroyed these vast kingdoms of africa should not be described by the pigmentation of their skin, nor should the victims make it a race thing...

The people who covertly start these wars and destroy civilizations are NOT of ANY human race! They're not even human, even though they maybe black/white/asian/chinese...
See ya.
