Racism is deep-rooted in Africans - Diplomatic expert

International diplomatic expert, Farouk Al-Wahab, has opined that Africans and African-American people are more racists than the Europeans and Americans.

According to him, the whites-only treat the blacks in an ill-mannered way because of the supremacy they have had from colonizing the black race.

He made these assertions in an interview with Kwame Afrifa Mensah on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show.

“Whites are not racists. They have the supremacy because they colonized us. We are struggling to reach that supremacy. How well have we positioned ourselves?”

He noted that within Africa, we hate ourselves and that creates disunity among us. He exemplified his point by stating that Nigerians and Ghanaians are not unified in the same way that Zimbabweans and South Africans are not unified.

The diplomatic expert was of the view that while the Black Americans are the cause of their own woes, he “condemns the abuse of humanity in any form”.

He furthered that Black Americans could have avoided the abuse by the police if they integrated into the African system and expanded.

Cities in the United States have seen several days of anti-racism protests against the police following the murder of African-American George Floyd by the police.

There have been protests in other countries too through social media.

Here in Ghana, the government through the Ministry of Tourism organized a short funeral ceremony in honour of the late George Floyd.
