Chika Onyeani Every African must internalise this book - ruthenpress.info INTRODUCTION. In October I decided to write 'Capitalist Nigger' also as a doctrine of making money and Being Tuareg Music and Capitalist Reckonings in Niger A dissertation submitted.
He continues by stating that Capitalist Nigger is a daring expose of a deep problem of "Africans being products not producers", Shahadah goes on to state the "naturally these kinds of agendas which destroy White economic privilege in Africa will not be welcomed by all those that continue to profit from an economically weak African nation.
The article noted that "Onyeani has no qualms about degrading not just an entire group of people but himself as well. He is, however, not entitled to his gratuitous insults. He replied simply "inferiority complex".
We whine and whine about how the Europeans looted our natural resources. Yes, they did, so what? We allowed them to do it, and we are still allowing them to do it even today.
There is too much whining among Africans, Blacks, continental Africans and Africans in the Diaspora - whine, whine, whine ad nauseam. We are beggars. We beg for everything. If you need something, be a man. Go and get it! Don't start whining for somebody to do it or get it for you. The French colonies used the French franc. In British West Africa a colonial pound was issued, but the rules ensured that it was always convertible at par with the metropolitan pound. It was only at independence that the new African governments had the option of creating national currencies, an option the former French colonies mostly declined while the former British colonies soon accepted.
It was the above-mentioned discovery, during the Second World War, that the export marketing board could be a major revenue-raiser, which was the major fiscal innovation of colonial rule. As independence approached, this unintended consequence of a wartime expedient offered African politicians unprecedented opportunities to, for example, transform educational opportunities for their populations.
The marketing board as a fiscal instrument was an important colonial legacy, and its possibilities and implications were only beginning to be understood. By the s the limits of the device had become clear, as ordinary traders and producers could evade it by trading on parallel markets Azarya and Chazan There is much in these criticisms, but recent research has shown that the borders were not necessarily so arbitrary in their origin and that at least some of them have subsequently acquired social reality and even popular legitimacy Nugent Again, while the colonial legacy includes several very small States, most colonies even the small ones were larger than the pre-colonial polities on which or in place of which they were imposed; and some of them formed parts of larger regional units notably French West Africa.
While the colonial borders have been largely preserved, colonial attempts to introduce Weberian bureaucracy have proved much less durable Bayart One reason for, or manifestation of, this is the salience of ethnicity in most African countries for political competition over resources.
Recent historiography has shown that the emphasis on the capacity of colonial States to invent and manipulate traditions, including those relating to ethnicity and chieftaincy, was partly justified, but it underestimated the capacity of African elites and peoples to influence the outcomes themselves Spear By no means all ethnic divisions originated in the colonial period Vansina , although they were usually deepened and reified by the interaction of colonial and African elites Prunier Whatever the precise division of responsibility in this interaction, there is general agreement among scholars that ethnicity has been a more important organising principle of political association and conflict since colonial rule than before it.
This matters for economic development because ethnic divisions are often seen, by public opinion and by some economists notably Easterly and Levine , as primarily responsible for rent-seeking rather than growth-promoting policies in post-colonial Africa. However, that approach has been criticised on various grounds notably by Arcand, Guillaumont and Jeanneney , and it is arguable that the salience of ethnicity in African political and economic life is as much a response to as a cause of the difficulties of enlarging the economic cake in African conditions and of the continued weakness of State capacity.
Daron Acemoglu, Simon Johnson and James Robinson a argue that it is an exception that proves the rule, i. In my view two considerations point to a different conclusion. First, without the discovery of diamonds, it is hard to see how post-colonial Botswana could have grown dramatically faster than colonial Bechuanaland. Indeed, during the first three decades of indendence the non-diamond mining sector of Botswana did no better than Zambia Jerven Second, British rule was relatively intense, rather than the opposite, in Bechuanaland.
By the criterion of the number of Africans per administrator, circa it was fifth out of 33 African colonies Richens, forthcoming. Simultaneously French firms were apparently becoming less interested in colonial economies Marseille If so, it is ironic that the French government remained closely involved with its former colonies after their independence, not least through the franc zone.
Again, in the s British firms on the spot expressed concern about their future under independent African governments, but they failed to attract much notice from the decolonising authorities Tignor ; Stockwell Conclusion 45This article has considered the issue of colonial legacies in relation to the longer-term dynamics of economic development in what was in an overwhelmingly land-abundant region, characterised by simultaneous shortages of labour and capital, by perhaps surprisingly extensive indigenous market exchanges, especially in West Africa, and by varying but often low levels of political centralisation.
Colonial governments and European firms invested in both infrastructure and especially in southern Africa in institutions designed to develop African economies as primary-product exporters. In both cases the old economic logic for coercing labour continued to operate, i.
But there were changes and variations. The resultant income at least enabled many of the slave-owners to become employers instead.
Thus, the first generation of post-colonial rulers presided over economies which were as yet too short of educated and cheap labour and sufficient and sufficiently cheap electricity to embark successfully on industrialisation.
It has taken post-colonial investment in education and other public goods to move West African economies, and tropical Africa generally, closer to the prospect of a substantial growth of labour-intensive manufacturing, if international competition permits it. The large-scale use of coercion was the basis for the construction of white-ruled economies that, especially in South Africa, eventually became profitable enough for a partly politically-impelled policy of import-substituting industrialisation to achieve some success.
Thus, the rents extracted from African labourers were channelled into structural change, although the process became self-defeating as it progressed, contributing to the fall of apartheid. A final legacy of the colonial period has a rather unclear relationship to colonial policy, i.

He is, however, not entitled to his gratuitous insults.
Onyeani was asked in an interview the question of what is stopping blacks from doing what they need to do? He replied simply "inferiority complex". Continental Africans think the world owes them something. We whine and whine about how the Europeans looted our natural resources.
Yes, they did, so what? We allowed them to do it, and we are still allowing them to do it even today. There is too much whining among Africans, Blacks, continental Africans and Africans in the Diaspora - whine, whine, whine ad nauseam.
We are beggars. We beg for everything.
If you need something, be a man. Go and get it! Don't start whining for somebody to do it or get it for you. Why Blacks Can't Run is the title of an upcoming book by Chika Onyeani that also deals with the economic status of both blacks in Africa and around the world.
It is considered a sequel to Capitalist Nigger.
