[One of my readers pointed me to this article by Mike Walsh. I’m in definite agreement with him on this principle and I’ve even used it myself. He is dead right that even educated, high ranking blacks still believe in this. I can say quite a bit about this topic myself. I do believe if we used a combination of psychological warfare, based on these black beliefs, along with various tricks; that it could scare the blacks a lot. The idea is definitely sound. We whites need to become malicious and cunning. I’m sure we could scare the blacks under certain conditions. The blacks fear witchcraft and spells more than they fear God or any other concept. Jan]
As a regular visitor to modern Africa, I was intrigued by talismans or juju habitually worn by African natives. It was explained to me that shamans are worn to protect the wearer from evil spirits.
Even educated Africans wore juju talismans to ensure they would never be consumed by fire, drown, or suffer a violent death. It was useless to claim these were fantasies; the Africans beliefs were unshakable.
Most Africans, including those in suits, are genetically programmed to be credulous. We too are superstitious but the African’s mind is a maelstrom of the darkest and most primitive fallacies. Witchcraft is more widely practiced today than ever before.
The phenomenon of African witchcraft is not confined to the most inaccessible parts of the Dark Continent. Due to immigration witchcraft is prevalent in the great cities and towns of Europe.
It is not unusual to see cases such as that of London child Kristy Bamu who was subjected to the most appalling cruelties and final drowning in the household bath after being accused by his African sister of being possessed.
Africans are firm believers in voodoo, witchcraft or in the Lingala language, Kindoki. In some areas of Africa, the numbers of allegations have amounted to epidemics of accusations. The Congo and southern Nigeria can be particularly singled out, but accusations occur almost everywhere in Africa. The greater is the tension the firmer the beliefs. Some of the possessed are taken to pastors for exorcism; others attempt their own weird exorcisms.
As a guest of European factory managers, I was privileged to be a guest in a sentry guarded residential compound. The stately home in which I stayed was flanked by grand houses occupied by government ministers. These stately homes formed a horseshoe ring shape around the most impeccably manicured bowling green sized lawn I had ever set eyes on.
But, set in the centre of the lawn was a hideous construction of wattle, wood, and straw; it was about the size of a garden privy. Aghast at its ugliness I was told that it was where the witchdoctor carried out his primitive rituals on all manners of creatures and other life forms.
When I protested at the inappropriate setting I was told by my hosts that if they had insisted on the witchdoctor’s den being located elsewhere their African workforce would walk out and stayed out. This is the reality not just of Africa but of the African mind.
I believe our besieged and terrified ethnic European peoples of South Africa could use this primordial superstition to their advantage. I am serious. If every threatened white farm, homestead or property was to adopt a talisman then many lives might be saved. If it saves just a few lives, puts fear into the hearts of attackers, it is worth a try.
By rumour and by notice a vulnerable property (or person) could be said to be protected by White witchcraft, spells, and hex. “If harm is committed to this property or person the malefactor will be cursed, his protective spell broken, and his family consigned to hell.”
