Juju at Work: Land For The Grabs

Updated: Apr 1, 2019

Everyone knows that I am a relentless voice on decolonization of anything as I believe that colonization is the root of all evil and most importantly dis-ease. This infection has and continues to spread viciously to all people on this planet, to mostly people of color; I would like to declare it a public health emergency as it is an epidemic that should have it's own diagnostic code. My story is a 100 plus series novel and one day I will write it full of color and vigor so that you will understand fully the painted picture of colonization and how it has personally affected my family members in Africa; how some of my family members of the revolution in Kenya and Nigeria were divided, conquered, mentally affected, and more, till this day.

My ancestors will not let me rest tonight as I write this at almost 3 am, they keep asking me to share with the world the horrible atrocities that lie in the colonial strategy and mindset here in Puerto Rico. It's a system that my people will call juju (only pronounced in a heavy African accent- please do not repeat this in public if you are unable to pronounce it correctly), except that it is not strong juju, rather superficial juju. Its strength is its persistence. What is juju in this case? Evil spell casting, programing and dupping. Remember the passage from first president of Kenya's autobiography Mzee Jomo Kenyatta on missionaries role in land grabbing? "While they gave us the Bible and our eyes were closed in prayer, they were taking our land."

My spirit people have assigned me a great life, to travel the trail of our people in the diaspora to discover and observe, voice and deliver truth, obediently I share. I am thankful indeed! Puerto Rico is correctly Boriken, Land of the Valiant, just like Lake Victoria is correctly Lake Nyanza meaning Vast Waters. Maybe I'll start doing some videos in correctly naming the colonized landmarks around the world to deactivate the colonizers weak juju on everyone. Well, as soon as Puerto Rico reclaims Boriken for example, the sooner ALL her people will recognize their valiance, because word sounds power is the truth!

Anyways, I am here on the Land of the Valiant, witnessing the true strategies of colonialism. It's like I am reliving my grandfather's stories of the colonial era in Kenya and ancestral whisperings of the take over. We all know that the island is under colonial rule; and knowing this once "subtly" has become an obvious fact. You know scenes like the arrival of Spaniards on ships in Apocolyto or militia on horses (except its planes here) in Dances with Wolves? Those scenes are happening. As if directed by Mel Gibson himself! Very ignorant, racist, bullies are here!!! Squatting ancestral lands, destroying ancestral grounds, disrespecting the people who's ancestors have been here for hundreds of years. They've come to take over and grab land...for "free" at times. And get away with it!!! There's also the anthropologist style colonizer here, usually in the guise of the "liberal" who has come under the notion of helping to volunteer or give to the people. Usually very keen to learn the language quickly, giving out random addiction oriented gifts or money, finding ways to worship in
