Outspoken African politician Dr.Arikana Chihombori-Qua has reflected on the history of Africa, describing the Slave River as a very spooky place.
In an interview on Diaspora Weekly on DNT, the former African Union Ambassador to the United States stated categorically that descendants of the formally enslaved should never let anybody make them feel inferior, adding that they are the crème de la crème of humanity for their ancestors to have survived the rigorous condition during the slave trade era.
She continued to observe the treatment meted out to captured slaves at the time was the “depth of evilness”, explaining that it is unbelievable human did that to their fellow humans.
Dr. Arikana could not help but emotionally recounted how she felt on her visit to the Slave River in the central region of Ghana, so that she was so emotional while considering the animalistic nature of slave traders whose wickedness is beyond belief.
“Let me tell you something that I have learnt as a medical doctor, as humanity we are wired differently. There are some people who are just wired different. There is no other way to explain how they don’t see anything wrong with the suffering of one human being, they actually walk right pass it. So you find that even when you look at slavery, there was a percentage of slavers who did not want slavery to end”, she recited.
The learned African patriot admonished that there are still people in the world today who wishes for slave trade to continue so that they put black people in a subservient position and see nothing wrong with that. She also questioned “how one can be comfortable seeing another suffering”?
Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao is confident western lawmakers must end the barbaric behaviour of belittling fellow human beings, while her submission tells how much African’s failure to be independent has cost us as a people. Again, she quizzed why we cannot say we are not engaging whites until they put an end to the ongoing wickedness towards the black race?
