BTW they're still in the curriculum, akina krapf na Livingstone. In Japan, they met their match, all were eliminated. Tells you alot about them, hata leo, the Japanese are afraid of foreign religions such as Islam and Christianity and what they do to civilizations.
Those religions have brought about many problems to the continent.
Many would rather believe in a 'prophet' or 'pastor' than facts.
Even Europe had to break away from the papacy in order to achieve the age of enlightenment and industrialization.
They are a means of neocolonialism...recently I read on the forum some people looking down on our traditional Agikuyu(and many other tribes) religious practices.

This has reminded me about some incident involving regiments of the British Army in Kenya some years ago. The regiments are made up soldiers from different mzungu tribes [scots, welsh...] as majorities. Solders from different regiments walipatana sportsman's arms wakachokozana. Walipigana mpaka wakauwana.
Huko Nanyuki ndio mambo yote jameni. Those soldiers eeeeeer wacha tuu. And they abuse our women from dawn to dusk.
Along with the Coastal region.

Yep. So true. They hate each other so much that sometimes you can almost touch/feel it. Strangely tho, the Irish are vv good people and so are the Scots. Same cannot be said about the English.
The English oppressed the Irish for years, even to date. And yes America has a huge chunk of the Irish people who fled then. I watch documentaries of such families tracing each other and it is always heartbreaking...just watching how a dad set out in the stormy seas for greener pastures America/Canada and made it but was not able to bring his family over. So what happens he remarries again and those are the re-unions we watch with tears flowing down our cheeks. Atee you are my sista they hug they cry and they are now in their 70's.

TBH hii kitu tulijiwekelea is not a joke. Immigrating. It has repurcussions and this will heavily impact on our kids in years to come. Like our Kenyan ones....
Quite interesting. Many years ago before I knew better, I happened to work on some project with an Irishman and an Englishman in Nairobi. I was really shocked at the hatred these two guys displayed towards each other, yet they were thousands of kilometres away from home, and to us they were just white men from the UK. I decided to really understand them, and so I ended up learning how England oppressed Ireland for so many years, for as far back as the Victorian times. The scars have never healed. In particular, Irish farmers had to flee their farms and head to US and Canada during the great potato famine. English landlords were leasing the farms in Ireland on very unfair terms. It was so bad that majority of Irish (whole families) had to leave their homes in numerous ships, just to stay alive (1846-1851). That's how Irish people got concentrated in Canada. But many died at sea in the process.
True, many of these Europeans that sneer at how 'Africans are tribalists' won't tell you at the many tribal wars they fought against each other.
The theme of 'European Nationalism' as it was put was actually tribalism on steroids. People identified each other tribally, culturally and formed borders on that basis. The Ottoman empire collapsed out of this 'nationalism'
As much as we Africans are struggling with the same, it is not a problem tied to us alone. We are actually doing much better than what you'll be told and it would be ideal if we united regardless of the same(many tribes)

There is this progy I have been following. Tribe next door it is called. The one that caught my eye so bad is the one where the Brits went to Namibia. Have tried to search for the main series sikupata.
But the star is one Scarlett Moffat and her family and how they settled in kwa desert. If you are able to catch the whole series pls post here. I am sure I did post under my old handle but siipati saa hii. A v interesting watch.
Snippet...

For this one wacha nikuwe house negro/ uncle tom or whatever

Take a look at the infrastructure they left behind, those so called mau mau elitist haven't / dint do shit.. To improve it

Take a look at residential areas that those colonialists constructed , especially Eastland's area from jamhuri , kariakor, Jerusalem ,makadara, Jericho , Uhuru , harambee, k-south ... All those areas are properly designed houses with enough area, social amenities are there ( playing fields, dispensaries, markets, schools and social halls )
Look at what was developed by those you called liberators ... A very unplanned and disorganised - flats za kayole,flats za dandora, pipeline all in the name of buroti maguta maguta
I'm a house nigga too

You are mistaken to think that any of the liberators even got a seat in the post-colonial government. Your mzungus carefully chose who would take over. They picked the greediest and the weakest of them all so that they could f**k up and make you believe they are actually superior human beings than you. But since you bought the mzungu's lie and abhor critical thinking, you can keep the house negro title.

You are clearly missing the point here... or is this your admission that you are inferior to a mzungu? Because if that is your line of argument, I don't wish to engage you any further because you are inherently irredeemable.

But if you paid a little attention, you will see a lot of individual Kenyans doing big things, both in Kenya and beyond. To me, those should be the leaders of our country and not the crap that mzungu chose for us after independence.

The red Indians died because they were vulnerable to European diseases. Africans already had some immunity, otherwise Africa would also have been overrun with white people.
At first they weren't really interacting much--they had no common language. War is what did them in.
There were instances where the Brits used small pox infected blankets as a biological weapon
