A Common but False Perspective
According to a widely shared belief, Africans are disappearing at a fast pace, and soon, Africa may very well be completely depopulated. “In one hundred years,” a friend of mine proclaimed authoritatively not too long ago, “There will be nobody left in Africa.” That such a demoralizing narrative should have become widespread is not really surprising since it is continuously reinforced by Western media always eager to show images of troubled Africans dying and starving. AFRICA IS A LARGE, POPULOUS CONTINENT AND WE ARE BOMBARDED WITH THE ICONS OF DISASTER FROM CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC TO LIBERIA, FROM GUINEA TO ERITREA, AS IF THE ENTIRE CONTINENT AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE ARE IN THE AGONY OF DEATH. Indeed, whether it is ravages allegedly caused by AIDS, famines or wars, the future, we are thus led to believe, looks quite bleak for Africans on the continent. (Of course, we are never told where AIDS or the weapons used by Africans to kill one another came from).
Yet, such a narrative does not survive even a cursory review of the latest reports on African demographic trends, such as the 2015 United Nations Report on World Population Prospects. In fact, contrary to what is widely proclaimed and believed, it is clear that far from dying, African people are reproducing at a faster rate than most other people. The current African fertility rate is quite high, with 4.9 children per woman, compared to a world average of 2.5 children per woman. In addition, since the African population is quite young, with 70% being under the age of 19, there is an inbuilt momentum for population growth. Moreover, not only are large numbers of African babies being born every day, but life expectancy has also increased significantly (by 6 years in the 2000s) in Africa as well, which means that Africans live longer lives. The current African population is about 1.2 billion and is expected to reach 2 billion in the next 20 years or so. According to the United Nations Report, “Africa continues to experience very high rates of population growth. Between 2015 and 2050, the populations of 28 African countries are projected to more than double. By 2100, ten African countries are projected to increase by at least five-fold: Angola, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Somalia, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia.” As for Nigeria, it is expected to have the third largest population in the world by 2050: “Nigeria’s population, currently the seventh largest in the world, is growing the most rapidly. Consequently, the population of Nigeria is projected to surpass that of the United States by about 2050, at which point it would become the third largest country in the world.” NIGERIA HAS ALREADY SURPASSED THE POPULATION OF EVERY EUROPEAN NATION AS WELL AS RUSSIA. THIS WILL INCREASINGLY BECOME A POLITICAL ITEM OF DISCUSSION AMONG EUROPEANS AND AMERICANS.
Why, then, one is compelled to ask at this point, this spread of gloomy lies about the physical demise of Africans? With so many young men and women on the African continent, one may only imagine Africa, not as moribund, but as a vibrant place, full of life, ideas, projects, AND dreams to be realized –especially given the many natural endowments of Africa. One realizes, of course, that the construction of Africa as place of death continues to occupy a central place in the paradigm of Afro-pessimism in which Africa is supposedly a “lost, dark continent,” from which Europeans have tried to rescue the “natives,” through enslavement and colonization, and today, through “globalization.” The objective is, among others, to make Africans lose hope in themselves, and continue to look to Europe for salvation while Europe continues to plunder Africa.
European Populations are in Decline
However, for an African person to continue to look to Europe for salvation would entail serious problems, not the least of them being the serious demographic decline of Europeans themselves. Indeed, the same United Nations Report informs us “Fertility in all (my emphasis) European countries is now below the level required for full replacement of the population in the long run (around 2.1 children per woman, on average), and in the majority of cases, fertility has been below the replacement level for several decades.” Women in Europe have on average 1.59 children. Consequently, and to make matters worse, Europe also has the oldest population in the world: “Europe today has the oldest population, with a median age of 42 years in 2015, which is expected to reach 46 years in 2050 and then 47 years in 2100.” In comparison, the median age in Africa is 19. Migration, the United Nations Report also informs us, will not be able to compensate excess deaths in Europe whose population is therefore expected to shrink by 32 million by 2050, decreasing from 758 million to 726 million. The precariousness of white demographics appears even more fully when one remembers that the loss of population in Europe would actually be far worse if it were not for the relatively prolific immigrants of color living on that continent. YET WE KNOW FROM CURRENT REPORTS IN THE PRESS THAT EUROPEANS ARE INCREASINGLY RESISTANT TO TAKING IN MANY MORE IMMIGRANTS OF COLOR. THEY FEAR THE CHANGE IN THE NATURE OF THEIR NATIONAL IDENTITY. HOWEVER, IT APPEARS THAT THERE IS LITTLE OPTIMISM THAT THESE COUNTRIES WILL BE ABLE TO GENERATE THE POPULATIONS THEY NEED TO REMAIN VIBRANT. Take England, for example, where white women have on average 1.7 children, while on average foreign women of color bear 2.5 children. In addition, about 69 people (mostly of color) enter the UK every hour, while on the other hand; whites are leaving the UK in unprecedented numbers, moving primarily to Australia or the U.S. In a poignant plea for white genetic and cultural survival, the white nationalist Arthur Kempf, in his book Third World Invasion: How Third World Immigration is Destroying the First World -- And What Must Be Done to Stop It (2015),deplores the fact that white students are already a minority in schools in London while whites are expected to become a numerical minority in the whole of England within three generations. According to Kempf, France also offers a disturbing picture, with at least 20% of the population being of foreign origin. Those foreigners, Kempf emphasizes, have very high reproduction rates, and have trebled their numbers in less than twenty years. In Marseilles, which holds a special place in French history and culture since it was the very first French city to come into existence, the situation is particularly preoccupying for whites, with 42% of those under the age of 18 being foreigners – mostly of Arab, North and West African origin. As a result,whites will become a minority in Marseilles within the next fifteen years or so. Of course, as foreigners move into France, England, and other parts of Europe, they do not simply bring their physical selves but also their culture. Thus, a grand mosque is being built in Marseilles as we write, which will have the capacity to house no less than 7,000 worshippers of the Arab god, Allah. The whole project is expected to cost $28 million. Attempts by a group of white citizens to prevent the erection of the Mosque failed in court (Kempf, 2008, p. 51).
Whites have also lost considerable demographic ground, and will continue to do so, in the United States as well. In effect, the white population has declined by 24% in 50 years, decreasing from 88% of total population in 1960 to 64% in 2010. For the first time, according to the 2010 Census, babies of color outnumbered white babies under the age of two, and white children will become an absolute minority by 2020, that is, in only a few years from now. Moreover, according to figures released by the US Census Bureau in June 2015,white people are dying faster than they are being born, and are thus expected to become a numerical minority in the US in the next 30 years (Kempf, 2008, pp. 101-102). Five states (California, Texas, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Nevada), as well as the District of Columbia already have a majority population of color.
What thus emerges is a similar demographic scenario in the “white” world characterized by low fertility rates due to cultural preferences (e. g., individualism, materialism); anti-life attitudes; as well as physiological impairment, most specifically decreasing sperm counts. According to a study of semen quality performed in Western countries between 1938 and 1990, for example, the sperm counts of European men has decreased by 50% over 50 years! And there is no reason to believe that it has not continued to decrease since 1990. In fact, a more recent study of semen quality conducted in France between 1989 and 2005 suggests just that, with a loss of one-third of sperm. Possible causes for such a development include stress, environmental chemicals (e.g., pesticides, plastics); an unhealthy diet (highly processed foods, loaded with sugar, hormones, antibiotics, trans-fat, dies, and fake salt, and more recently, GMOs), as well as cellular telephones.
While one would never suspect, based on the information conveyed by Western media, the dire situation in which Europeans find themselves (by their own doing), Kempf laments with good reason that “If the demographic processes outlined in this book continue unabated, then the very existence of all European people is in grave danger.” (Kempf, 2008, p. 143). What he suggests to ensure white survival is no less than separation, in the form of what he calls an “ethnostate,” a “European homeland” similar to Israel for the Jews. Europeans would withdraw there and protect themselves the best they can from foreign encroachment, all in the hope of protecting their white genes and culture. Needless to say that this is already a lost battle for sooner or later Europeans will end up vanishing due to very low reproduction rates – even more rapidly if they are left on their own.
Strategic Responses to European Population Decline
White elites have been aware of this danger for quite a long time. They have met behind doors, and probably continue to do so in order to find solutions to their self-inflicted predicament. As early as 1929, the famous American Philosopher of Science, Bertrand Russell would declare that "It cannot be expected that the most powerful military nations will sit still while other nations reverse the balance of power by mere breeding." To be honest, Kempf’s recommendation of the creation of a separate European state is on the gentle side since the author does not recommend exterminating us. Other recommendations, however, have been far less benign, as it was revealed, for example, when NSSM 200 was declassified in 1990. The National Security Study Memorandum 200, also called The Kissinger Report, defined the official US policy toward the so-called “over-population” problem, that is, the rapid growth of babies of color around the world. Several agencies, such the CIA, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), as well as the Departments of State, Defense and Agriculture were involved in drafting US policy toward people of color. In a nutshell, it was resolved that the US should take swift measures to prevent or curtail the demographic expansion of people of color since such expansion would interfere with US access to natural resources around the world. In Kissinger’s own terms, "(…) the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad; especially from less developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interest in the political, economic, and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States.“ The implementation of population control programs was thus a high priority, with a push for the legalization of abortion worldwide; financial rewards for nations to augment and maintain their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates; the brainwashing of children of color; paying women of color to have abortions; or simply demanding population control in exchange for food relief during a disaster. NSSM 200 also emphasized that US policy should not be carried openly by the US government in order to avoid charges of, and resistance to foreign imperialism, but instead should be implemented by US-controlled agencies and NGOs. Therefore, one should not be surprised that in 1986, for example, the World Bank announced that, as far as Africa was concerned, its top priority was the reduction of the African population. Any loan from the World Bank would automatically include a commitment to population reduction on the part of the borrowing African country. Also, the Population Council, an agency created in 1952 by John Rockefeller III, and heavily involved in population reduction schemes around the world, has also received generous support from the US government, such as a $2 million grant to curtail the fertility of “poor” women in the United States in 1969.
Crafting a Logic for the Masses to Believe
Finally, in any case, NSSM 200 insisted that population control programs should always be presented as altruistic, that is, as having the interest of the people of people of color at heart, for example, the defense of people’s “right” to not have children, or only a few, of women’s “rights,” or facilitating “development,” since it was said and repeated that a large population hinders “development,” with Europe and America being held as success stories and models to emulate.
This hypocritical rhetoric can only mask with great difficulty the racism inherent in population reduction programs. For one thing, while encouraging if not forcing nations around the world to reduce their population, all European nations on the other hand have taken measures to increase their own white population. Germany, for instance, created a special population bureau whose goal is to facilitate the birth of 200,000 additional German babies every year. As for Russia, it created in 2006 “Procreation Day” in an attempt to reverse its dangerously low birth rate. Every couple who manages to produce a child on September 12 receives gifts and congratulations. Tracing the genealogy of the population control paradigm automatically leads one to thinkers or bodies of thought such as Malthus, Darwin, Spencer and Social Darwinism, and Galton, the father of Eugenics. As an illustration of the true orientation of these European thinkers about people of color, let us observe that the complete title of Darwin (1809-1882)’s most famous work, often abbreviated to The Origin of Species, was The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. In that book, Darwin (1874: 178) declared the following: “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate (my emphasis), and replace, the savage races throughout the world." Of course, history is proving Darwin wrong, unless maybe whites are understood as the real savages …
In addition to the push for abortions and contraceptives, two salient strategies employed by Europeans to curtail the growth of people with melanin must be mentioned. The first one is the imprisonment of young people of color in white-dominated countries, thus preventing them from reproducing as much or at all. This is the case in the United States, where no less than 745,000 black men are locked up. In France as well, “Muslims” make up 70% of the prison population. The second strategy is the use of bioweapons, that is, the use of viruses and bacteria to kill or incapacitate people of color. Examples of such bioweapons would include the “mysterious” HIV virus, Ebola, Chikungunya, and maybe the more recent Zika? Reports of diverse vaccines generously distributed around the world and loaded with sterilizing agents have also surfaced. The latest and most sophisticated bioweapons, though, have now taken the form of genetically engineered food injected with spermicides. In 2001, a US company, Epicyte, announced a breakthrough invention: contraceptive corn, loaded with anti-sperm antibodies taken from sterile women. Epicyte presented this invention as its contribution to solving the world’s “over-population problem,” a mere euphemism for the elimination of people of color.
As we conclude, we are reminded of Marcus Garvey’s accurate statement that, "We of the Negro race are suffering more than any other race in the world from propaganda – Propaganda to destroy our hopes, our ambitions and our confidence in self." Educating ourselves about developments in the world, especially of a demographic nature, will go a long way in preventing us from falling victims of anti-African propaganda and white bluff. Far from gloomy and desperate, the future looks quite bright for African people. Indeed, despite the many continuous and savage assaults against us, we are still around and thriving. Furthermore, there is ample evidence that the young people of Africa will not be as gullible as their parents, and that the wind of African Renaissance has started blowing over our beloved Continent. Vigilance, however, is a must given that, as time passes, Europeans will become more and more desperate, and susceptible to commit greater crimes against us.
