June 12, 2020 "Information
Clearing House" - While I am following
closely various discussions on Western mass media and
social media, simultaneously engaging in several direct
exchanges, one overwhelming leitmotif that I see is
clearly emerging: “What is happening in the United
States (and the UK, France and other parts of Western
Empire) is not really about the race. Let us protest
peacefully, let us not allow ‘rioting’ to continue, and
above all, please let us not single out the white race,
Western culture as a sole villain. Let us have peace,
love each other… Then things will miraculously improve;
terrible occurrences will soon go away.”
I have worked and lived on all continents, from far
away island nations of South Pacific (Oceania), to
Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia. Of
course, I lived in Europe and North America, too.
Colonialism, neo-colonialism, imperialism – these are
all my topics. Seriously! I have been studying them,
investigating them; I wrote and made various documentary
films about them. On several occasions I came very close
to losing my life, confronting them.
My conclusion after all that I saw and experienced
and survived? You can probably guess it:
“To claim that the race
is not what has been, for centuries, dividing our
Planet, is outrageous hypocrisy. Or deranged wishful
thinking. Or something much worse: it is calculated
blindness that serves only the ruling, white group of
To make it blunt:
Our Planet has been reduced to only two races: White and
On top of it, the color of one’s skin is not always
identical to what the West, in general, perceives as the
Caucasian/white race. To be “white” is the state of
mind. It means: belonging to the culture which perceives
itself as “superior”. The culture which sees itself as
‘exceptional’, and somehow ‘chosen’ to judge and advice
the entire humanity.
It also means ‘a state of indoctrination and
obedience, as well as lack of intellectual courage’. All
this, in exchange for the privileges; fabulous
privileges! “Plunder the world, and live well above your
means; live grotesquely plush life! And while you are
living it, do not forget to whine, demand more, and keep
repeating that ‘you are also exploited and, actually, a
very poor victim’”.
Denying the privileges is part of racism, too, as
it demonstrates unexpectable
spite for the real
victims! Or, perhaps, self-imposed
Citizens of some countries, such as Russia, Cuba, and
Turkey, may look mainly ‘white’, but they are actually
not. They are not invited to the ‘club’, because their
mindset is different because they are not submissive
because they think on their own.
Such conclusions may not be popular in New York,
London, Paris, or Berlin. Especially not now, when the
United States and the entire West are in turmoil.
The culture which was built on blood, bones, rape,
and theft, ‘culture’ shaped by more than 500 years of
colonialist terror, is now turning, twisting, and trying
to justify itself. It tries to survive while staying in
a driving seat. Countless editorials penned by both
‘conservative’ and so-called ‘liberal’ scribes are
carpet-bombing the pages of newspapers at both sides of
the Atlantic Ocean.
Fear of perhaps mortally injured beast – Western
regime and its citizens – is delectable by its repulsive
stench, and it stinks for miles.
Suddenly, most of the so-called ‘progressive’
publications do not want to hear from those writers and
thinkers who are shooting powerful projectiles in the
form of highly uncomfortable truth. Actually, in the
West, there are hardly any true “left-wing” sites or
magazines left, of course with some shining exceptions.
What is really progressive these days? I don’t want to
name the sites or publications here, but you are most
likely aware of which ones I am talking about: they
almost exclusively carry the stuff written by the
Western/white men, for other white men’s consumption!
They never cross the line: their criticism of the
Western white-dominated world is half-hearted,
“peaceful”; in short cowardly.
A white man is an individual who has been brought up
and indoctrinated in a certain way, who thinks, speaks,
and writes in a manner that is expected from him or her
by the Western regime.
And all these ‘non-whites’, all over the world,
including the minorities in the Western countries, are
expected to sit on their asses, shut up and listen to
him or her, but mostly him. And of course, to obey. Or
Or else: they will be verbally attacked and
humiliated, eventually, they will get sanctioned, their
governments were overthrown, countries invaded. There
will be corpses all over, the stench of burning flesh,
overflowing mass graves. And ‘at home’, in the West?
Bullets shot at their eyes, or necks squashed by
military or police boots.
So, what actually happened a few weeks ago to Mr.
George Floyd, has been constantly happening to non-white
people all over the world, to the entire communities and
Then, suddenly, people, all over the world, had
Almost everywhere, not just in China, Russia,
Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Libya, Syria, Iraq, and
Enough of being treated as some lower, subservient
races. Enough of being treated like a scum; brutalized,
killed like Mr. Floyd!
Now, in the West, both liberal and conservative media
is making noises, claiming that Mr. Floyd was “not a
saint”, that he used to serve some time in prison.
What can I say? People, in general, are not saints.
People and countries. Very often, circumstances make
them behave in a very nasty matter. But if you are
raised as a second-class citizen, if you are beaten, day
and night, by your own regime, are you expected to turn
out to be a romantic poet? Get real!
Our countries, non-Western ones, are not always
behaving like saints, either. But they are still better,
much better, than those that have been murdering
hundreds of millions in their colonies!
Don’t they understand, in Washington, London, and
Paris, why those millions of people, from Tokyo to
Buenos Aires, from Africa to Asia, are now marching in
support for the African-American people? It is because
all of us, outside Europe, North America, Australia, and
New Zealand, are somehow related to Mr. Floyd!
Yes, we read those phony essays. We observe those
cynical little smiles on the faces of the people who are
denying racial and racist division of the world.
Individuals who are defending the status quo,
the rule of that tiny minority over the planet, so they
could maintain their advantages.
Some defenders of status quo are now going
as far as claiming that the rebellion against the white
rulers is actually some sort of dark conspiracy theatre,
triggered by the well-concealed business elites, or that
it is connected to COVID-19; but above all, that it is
not spontaneous at all.
It is clear, where they really stand and what they
want to achieve.
It is never “them”. It is always somebody else. They
keep pointing fingers at some invisible bankers, or the
minorities in their own countries. You know precisely
what I mean. As long as it is not them! But it is all
much simpler: most of Europe and North America are
constructed on white racism. And so is imperialism,
colonialism. Citizens in the West are voting right-wing
scum, voluntarily, and consistently. Can you imagine a
genuine North American or European “internationalist”?
Maybe a few. Perhaps 1%. Not more! So, the proverbial
gold keeps flowing in. And billions of non-whites are
rotting alive, in all corners of the globe.
My friends, my comrades, all over the world, are now
opening their eyes, realizing what is happening in the
United States and its colonialist daddy: Europe. Many of
them, of course, already knew. At least they knew
something. But those who did not, are now wide awake,
getting well aware of the brutality of the Western
regime, as well as of the racist nature of the “global
Those who were, for centuries, manufacturing consent,
justifying and glorifying colonialism, imperialism,
racial discrimination, as well as Western supremacy, can
suddenly do nothing to stop the avalanche of awareness.
This may be the beginning of the end of segregation,
of global apartheid. Just the beginning of the true
struggle for equality.
A knee of a beefy white racist cop in Minneapolis,
which had cut the supply of air, killing an
African-American person, somehow managed to trigger that
Nobody wants to live like this. Oppressed nations do
not want to be threatened this way by those white
Western cynics and nihilists: like Clinton and Trump,
Navarro, Pompeo, and others. What a hellish troop of
third-rate violent porn performers, these people!
Oppressed minorities inside the empire, be they of
African descent, Hispanics or Chinese, are sick of the
vicious and repulsive racism. Mostly, they are
frightened to speak. But now, day by day, they are
The United States of America has been built on the
genocide of the non-white people. The great majority of
native folks had been slaughtered so the small number of
the first and brutal European settlers could thrive.
This is “to some extend” known fact, but learning
in-depth what really happened to the original
inhabitants of ‘America’ has been thoroughly
discouraged. Word ‘genocide’ is hardly ever uttered, in
connection with the first chapters of U.S. history.
Actually, it is taboo.
Slavery has been turned into folklore. Millions, tens
of millions of broken, methodically destroyed human
lives, is hardly ever presented in its real, nightmarish
authenticity. People in Africa were hunted down like
animals, tortured, raped, killed, and shipped like
cattle to the so-called ‘free’ and ‘democratic’ “New
Does a country constructed on such macabre
foundations have really any moral right to exist, let
alone call itself ‘free’? Can it be allowed to police
the world? It is as if you would allow that murder cob
who killed Mr. Floyd, to run a nation!
And those states which are now forming Europe? Their
citizens are the descendants of those who were hunting
down millions of human beings. Offspring of those who
perpetrated and then got rich on such mass-slaughters as
those of the Namibians, or people who used to inhabit
what is now known as Congo.
When dragged to the broad daylight, it is all very,
very uncomfortable, isn’t it? Better to sweep the truth
under the carpet, and talk about “love”, “goodwill”. And
then keep robbing and murdering as before, far away from
This way, nothing would ever change.
Repeating over and over again: “race does not matter;
it is actually all about class”, could make those who
are in control of the world feel good about themselves,
even sometimes sorry for themselves, which is actually
their favorite state of mind. But it is a terribly
hypocritical and deceptive position. And it has to be
unveiled if there is ever to be justice!
On 3 June 2020, UN News, published an essay
condemning the situation in the United States:
“Voices calling for an end to “the endemic and
structural racism that blights US society” must be heard
and understood, for the country to move past its “tragic
history of racism and violence”, the UN Human Rights
chief said on Wednesday.
“The voices calling for an end to the killings of
unarmed African Americans need to be heard”, UN High
Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said in
a statement. “The voices calling for an end to police
violence need to be heard”.”
Ms. Bachelet, a Chilean, knows precisely what she is
talking about! She knows what it is to have someone’s
knee choking your aorta. Her father, an army General
during the socialist era of President Salvador Allende,
was murdered after the U.S.-sponsored coup led by
Augusto Pinochet. Ms. Bachelet herself was kidnapped and
She looked ‘white’, but obviously not ‘white enough’
for Washington and its local assassins.
What is truly significant is that even the United
Nations (usually subservient to the U.S.) is now
unwilling to remain silent.
Race ‘issues’ have to be addressed. Racism, inside
the national boundaries, as well as on the global scale,
has to be fought against, by all means.
The depressing state of our planet is a result of
Look at the map of the world at the beginning of the
20th century, and you will see: a great
majority of the nations were colonized by the West.
Colonialism is one of the most evident forms of racism.
It humiliates victims, it robs them of everything: of
culture, dignity, land.
To a great extent, most of the world is still being
colonized. Even right now, as this is being written.
Almost the entire Planet is brutally controlled by
the white race. Through the racist West-centric
education system, and by the mass media which is
controlled by the White boy’s Western narrative. Things
have been arranged, so that the people in non-Western
countries have been ‘learning’ and ‘getting informed’
about themselves from the Western curriculums and the
fraudulent sources disseminated by the U.S. and British
media outlets. That is grotesquely racist, isn’t it?
Close to 10 million people have died in the
Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in just a quarter of
a century. It is because they have coltan, uranium, and
other essential raw materials, desired by the West. But
also, because to the West, their black lives matter
close to nothing. My film,
“Rwanda Gambit”, is clearly addressing the issue.
But who cares? In the West, they rather watch porn,
instead of learning the greatest genocide of the 20th
Century, which they helped to trigger! And who cares
about the West Papuans, who are murdered with almost the
same intensity by the Indonesians, on behalf of their
Western masters? After all, the West Papuans are
blacks, therefore matter nothing.
On those millions, mountains of corpses, huge
companies, and even entire countries are thriving,
prosper. While their CEOs and Presidents are talking
rubbish about some ‘corporate responsibility’ and love
And most of the white Europeans, Canadians,
Australians, have to sacrifice very little, in order to
live their obnoxiously luxurious lives.
Isn’t this racist?
The entire arrangement of the world is!
Soon, it will be impossible to hide behind all those
I work at the frontlines. Where human bodies are
crushed by all that “love” of the white colonialism and
racism, directly but also indirectly. Racist violence is
the most repulsive and the creepiest thing on Earth.
I want it to end; once and for all. I don’t care if
some shops get looted or trashed in the process.
Peaceniks who are crying over them are mostly sitting in
their plush living rooms, watching censored news. They
do not see those tens of millions of victims of racism
rotting in tropical heat, floating on the surfaces of
polluted rivers, thousands of kilometers away!
Images of Mr. Floyd being murdered, slowly and
sadistically, is as close as they ever got to reality.
For centuries, they did all they could in order not
Now they are running out of excuses.
Not to see, not to fight against the white, endemic
global racism is a terrible crime. A crime that has been
taking place for more than 500 years. The crime against
