THE BLACKED SKINNED PEOPLE OR THE DARK CONTINENT PEOPLE. Failure is of the mind and never of the colour. Success is of mentality and not complexion. The triumph of a man is never a function of the texture of his skin but a measure of the tenacity of his being. Every man can survive hard times, whether by the guerilla tactics of survival or any other means employed for survival. It still stands that the chances of any man living, is never a function of the flares on their skin, but an aftermath of endowed endurance and a high spirit to live out all odds. Is being black synonymous to setbacks? Is being black synonymous to rudeness and cruelty? Is being black of an evil underlaying? Is being black synonymous to low self esteem? Is being black synonymous to insecurity? Is being black synonymous to poverty? Or better said than afore-mentioned above; Is being dark skinned a curse rather than a blessing? Is being dark skinned a taboo that sets in setbacks? Is being dark skinned a means of personality degeneration? Is being dark skinned a pain in the heart or a plus in the head of the possessors of such or being rather better placed than as above. If being black were horses, the world over would ride… If being black were gold, the world would mine, and even trade every of their riches known and all that could be traded for it. If being black were roses, all would admire the splendor with which she has been gracefully adorned so attractively. If being black were like the tender lilies, all would queue to take a gasp of her aroma and saintly smells of the beauty of the nature, so carefully designed for her and with which she has been blessed by providence. The dark skinned people or the dark skinned continent people, the black skinned people or the black continent people… A people of an habitation fashioned cunningly, even by divine providence, a people of great stature, culture and statutory beliefs, who have cut their own niche across the globe, and carved out their own stones of reckoning , even the whole wide world over. But alas the present of all inappropriateness, with leaders given to insatiable urge, and creation of self-possession of all that ever does matter to them. Power tasty leaders who have ended up treating their own people, kindred…and close associates, as with dogs and peasants begging for food, even daily needs and shelters over their head. Leaders who have disjoined remorse from power, who care less about the plight of their people , the people with which they started out in life launching into the boat of faith and hope, on which they now upward sail without a moment gaze on all evil predicament perpetrated by selfish loose traits of rulership.
