WE WUZ ZAMUNDANS
I hope you have enjoyed Occidental Dissent’s coverage of Black History Month 2018.
We started with the black fictional image that is Prince T’Challa and the Wakandans. We close with the beloved Prince Akeem and the Zamundans who will soon be returning to theaters in Coming to America 2. Neither T’Challa or Akeem bear any resemblance to real African emperors like Bokassa I or real African princes like Teodoro Obiang Nguema or Robert Mugabe Junior.
No one is starving or living in poverty in Wakanda or Zamunda. That’s only Haile Selassie’s Ethiopia. No one lives under a brutal dictator who has killed millions like Shaka. No one is being murdered by drug addicted, crossdressing generals who command child soldiers like in Sierra Leone and Liberia. No one is dying in clan warfare like in Somalia or being eaten by cannibals like the Simbas in the Democratic Republic of Congo. No one is being butchered as cockroaches by génocidaires like in Rwanda. No one is a modern day slave like in Mauritania or dying from AIDS like in Botswana.
Next year, we will take a look at how Africans live in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. We will finish our search for a real world Wakanda or Zamunda where black people have demonstrated the capacity to live like they do in The Cosby Show.
Note: The president of Gabon married a black woman from California who was living on EBT.
