Racism and American Policy


ABOVE: A depiction of the minstrel show that Matthew Perry organized for the Japanese to stir hatred of Africa in Japan.


The following was part of a lesson taught at my Racism and American Policy class this semester:

For hundreds of years Africa and China shared a peaceful and beneficial relationship based on mutual trust. The two great powers traded both goods and cultural lessons. For example, Africans introduced the Chinese to advanced mathematics and medicine while the Chinese introduced silk to Africa.

By the mid-nineteenth century whites in America grew increasingly alarmed about the Africa/China relationship. By this time America had already kidnapped and murdered millions of Africans and wanted to invade the African interior to rape the continent of its natural resources.

White America feared China would come to the aide of Africa and find itself at war with the Eastern power. It was decided that America would force an alliance with Japan in order to threaten the Chinese with an American/Japan union to keep the Chinese in check.

It was known that Japan was an isolated nation and quite possibly knew little or nothing about Africa. The Americans decided to exploit this and introduce racism among the Japanese towards Africans to form a lasting hate of Africa.

In 1852, America sent the warmonger Matthew Perry with a fleet of warships to Japan. Perry’s mission was forge a union with Japan, instill racism towards Africa and hate towards China.

When he arrived in Japan, Perry organized among other things, a minstrel show to “entertain” the Japanese. Perry had also brought with him a number of African slaves to show off to the Japanese. He wanted to show the Japanese that Africans could be chained and controlled and he spread lies that Africa had plans to attack Japan with help with the Chinese.

The rest as they say is history. Japan became a militant power and eventually attacked and occupied China. In fact, Japan grew so aggressive due to American influence that it eventually attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Bigger Pictures: Most Asians Believe in Karma, Do You?

Hundreds of thousands of years ago, the black men drove the white men out of Mother Africa. The white race were shunned, ostracized and forced to find shelter elsewhere. They survived, thrived, and founded great civilizations. Somehow, in the recent thousand year of human history, the white men ended up enslaving the black men for labor.

Perhaps, the fate of the black men today is the result of karma.

Thoughts?

ha ha, anonymous you're a dunce.
unfortunately for you you've been had by this pisstaking website, its a so-called troll blog, written quite intelligently to ensnare wankers like you into outrageous reponses.
your infomation is even more flawed than the nonsense the authors have fabricated; why would white people develop such a pigment in africa? i thnk you'll find that only a northern migration and subsequent vitamin D deficiency and lack of constantly strong sunlight may have militated towards pigment transformation. As for the bloggers, keep it up, its not only a funny read but the replies are brilliant. by the way, sharpen your grammar if you want to accurately portray yourselves as lectures or professors .

And now, China is exploiting Africa for all its worth, while Western nations try to help her.

It's a wonder Temple University has not fired you by now. Sounds like a place I'll never send my kids to for higher education with racists like you employed by them.

in the mid ninteenth century China couldnt have gone to war with USA to help africa becaouse it was being kept in check by the British. And in that time period most of Africa was colonised so how could you call it a great power?
