Putin: Africans Eat Each Other, So Get off My Back
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that “"We all know that African countries used to have a tradition of eating their own adversaries. We don’t have such a tradition or process or culture and I believe the comparison between Africa and Russia is not quite just."
Evidently all of this came out when Putin got defensive when people questioned his own human rights record.
So I guess in an attempt to put things in perspective for them he used Africa's history of cannibalism as a litmus test.
Predictably there has been this outrage over all of this, which will no doubt have African leaders as well as African American leaders demanding an apology from him.
I hate ignorance.
No, I am not talking about Putin.
I am talking about anyone who is outraged by his "Africans eat each other so get of f my back" statement because it is absolutely true.
There is a tradition throughout the African continent of eating your fallen adversaries to gain power.
Hell, they have the same tradition over in Haiti and you know where they got it from?
That's right. they got it handed down to them from the same Africans that were
brought over to Haiti during slavery.
Now the only thing that Putin was wrong about was when he said that “we don’t have such a tradition or process or culture”.
It might not be as pronounced as it is in Africa but one need not look any further than the records of the Greek Orthodox Church or Byzantine Empire and how they have very well documented incidents of priests refusing to go into certain parts of old Russia to proselytize because Greek Orthodox priest were getting eaten left and right.
Now I am sure he will say that they were only eating the priest because they were probably starving, but that is debatable. The fact that Greek Orthodox priests were refusing to even go into some parts of Russia without armed escorts out of fear of being eaten is not.
