REFLECTIONS OF BLACK HISTORY: THE POLITICAL CRIME OF BELGIUM IN CONGO (AFRICA)

Africa’s vast natural resources inspired Europeans to invade Africa. One of the greediest, bloodthirsty and wicked kings was Belgium's King Leopold II. These are some of the images of the crimes he committed during the colonial era in Congo.

Despite the magnitude of those horrible crimes against humanity, Belgium mocked the victims and congratulated the perpetrator, King Leopold II, by naming streets after him throughout Belgium and built statues in his honour. We don’t have to blame God, for the evil in this world, because God is not part of this. 

The reason I’m appealing to all African-American artists, Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Chris Brown, Rihanna etc, never to perform in Belgium, if they value themselves as human beings until the streets named after King Leopold II are changed and those statues come tumbling down like that of Saddam Hussein’s.

African-Americans shouldn’t complain of disrespect when they are part of their own calamities. Would a Jewish singer perform in a country that has the statue of Adolf Hitler? This is the question to African-American musicians and athletes to answer.

The evil deeds of a man can't be praised unless you are evil. The statue of the evil King Leopold II of Belgium
