>(Mr. Moukouani Mukwani Bukoko, born in 1915, transmitted this text
to us; he obtained it by good luck in 1935. Moukouani Mukwani Bukoko
was a nurse at Kwamuth (Congo) Bolobo, and bought a Bible. This text
was in that Bible.Surely the priest had forgotten it by mistake.
This is from a speech by King Leopold II of Belgium delivered in 1883
to Belgium missionaries:

"Reverends, Father, and Dear Compatriots:
The task that is given to us to fulfill is very delicate and requires
much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your
evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests.
Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to
teach the niggers to know God. Thus they know already. They speak and
submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don't
know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else's wife, to
lie and to insult is bad.Have courage to admit it; you are not going
to teach them what they know
already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of
administrators and industrials, which means you will go to interpret
the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests
in that part of the world.
For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our
savages from the richness that is plenty in their underground. To
avoid that they get interested in it, and make you a murderous
competition and dream one day to
overthrow you.Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find
texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty. Like
happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven and it's
very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.You have to
detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives
courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic System and
their war fetish - warfare protection - which they pretend not to
want to abandon, and
you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.
Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for
they won't revolt when the recommendation of the priest is
contradictory to their parent's teachings. The children have to learn
to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their
soul. You must singularly insist on their total submission and
obedience, avoid developing the spirits in the
schools, teach students to read and not to reason.
There, dear compatriots, are some of the principles that you must
apply. You will find many other books, which will be given to you at
the end of this conference. Evangelize the niggers so that they stay
forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt
against the restraints they are undergoing.Recite every day - "happy
are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them."
Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine
months of submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in
sign of recognition - goats, chickens or eggs - every time you visit
their villages. And make sure that niggers never become rich. Sing
every day that it's impossible for the rich to enter heaven.Make them
pay tax each week at Sunday mass. Use the money supposed for the
poor, to build flourishing business centres. Institute a confessional
system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black
that has a different consciousness contrary to that of the decision-
maker.
Teach the niggers to forget their heroes and to adore only ours.
Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don't give
him more than one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he
gives you a chicken every time you arrive at his house.

Some people av met on this site dont know that and would never know, am not sure though, does it have anything to do  with upbriging?

I think the Deeper Life Ministry in Nigeria has perfected that act.

Good way to describe the Fulani dominance of Nigeria, hiding behind the name Northerners/hausas.

White supremacy till tomorrow. Except it changes when Jesus comes

What a good read.  smiley
