People take up arms for various reasons-economic,political,religious and racial or a combination of said factors. The African independence wars were sparked off by a mutually reinforcing confluence of these causes. All over the continent in a process starting in 1950s the West,North,East and South colonised black people took up arms to defeat their white colonisers.
For all practical purposes these struggles were race wars since the belligerents were fighting to overthrow a political system that enshrined anti black racism. There are many definitions of racism;this being the most basic:
- 2a : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principlesb : a political or social system founded on racism
- 3: racial prejudice or discrimination

Many would be shocked to discover Africa has its own race wars within its own population. The earliest post independence race war was the first Tuareg rebellion which began immediately after the French left when the latter found themselves divided into 3 countries. A proud hierachical semi feudal people they couldn't understand the authority of the ruling southern tribes,the Bambara,Soninke and Malinke.
From whence did their legitimacy come? How and why did the French independence agreement with southerners,a sedentary farming people affect nomadic pastoralists? With such attitudes war was inevitable and began in 1963 soon after self government.
Mali brutally suppressed the insurgency. A few years after the worst of the fighting the devastating Sahel drought of 71-73 saw the Tuaregs lose 80% of their livestock die. Corruption and inefficiency of Malian aid efforts worsened already fragile Tuareg/Mali government relations.
In fact the entire north remained an area of low level insurgency throughout til 2002 when a Tuareg was nominated for the office of the PM. Western intel sponsored Islamist groups introduced the terror aspect to the rebellion. Now genuinely legitimate political grievances have been subsumed by the reality of the urgency of confronting the global war on terror,which has now raised its head in the Sahel,specifically Mali.

The Khoisan are generally accepted to be the original inhabitants of southern Africa. The men of this hunter gatherer people are below 5" 2',with a buttery yellow complexion,high cheekbones and an epicanthic eyefold.
About 100,000 in number they live in the same groups of 4 to 5 families indefinitely sharing everything migrating hundreds of kilometers throughout the deserts of arid zones of Angola,Namibia,Botswana and RSA hunting animals and searching for edible plants.
Their lifestyle has changed. Now they consume starchy maize flour like their Bantu neighbours with whom they had a formerly rocky relationship. Southern bantus,Tswanas,Chokwes,Ovambos,Damaras and Hereros among others are all cattle keepers with larger stockier physiques. Equally important they had steel-or rather steel weapons. It was inevitable the Khoisan would be pushed out of the original wetter homelands into todays semi arid savannahs and true deserts like the Kalahari in a process that began with the first bantu immigration into the area circa 2000 bc .
The Khoisan earned the undying enmity of their larger neighbours by treating their cattle as normal prey:the first white settlers also hated the Khoisan for the same reason. In fact the Khoisan were pushed into the marginal lands they now inhabit by bantu cattle keepers.
The Khoisan marginalisation process approached genocidal proportions when the Dutch arrived in the the 1600s.One can estimate their population loss by one stark fact: Dutch East India Company records state 2500 were killed and almost 700 captured in the between 1785-1795. Later there was a standing order for the British South African Police active all over the British protectorates and colonies in the region during the colonial era to shoot any male Khoisan on sight!

Two different races were in competition for resources-cattle,good grazing land and women. Even a complete newcomer can notice many Southern bantu have certain Khoisan characteristics facially and physiologically.

More than enough has been said about the Hutu/Tutsi situation. Most of the MSM writeups as to be expected are still complete bullshit,though the BBC 3 years back came out with the truth revealing that the entire narrative had been inverted.
Don Cheadle's Hollyweird vehicle was the perfect example of reality turned inside out.
The latter thumbnail is correct! The Tutsi RPF invaded from the north,Uganda facilitated by architect of regional Tutsi supremacy Museveni
What happened in April 1994 ideally should go into a separate post since there's so much new info and the old details must be properly reinterpreted but basically it was the attempted return of millennia of intra African apartheid. The old 'whites,'the Tutsi in the form of the Rwandese Patriotic Front were returning to the newly freed blacks,' the Hutu,their erstwhile serfs,with scores to settle.
The relationship was founded on the assumed superiority of the Tutsi;the entire culture restricted Hutu to a permanent underclass. He couldn't own cattle,had no say in a rigid hierarchy based on Tutsi royalty and indeed lived only on his Master's sufferance. Ofttimes even princes would sport kill a Hutu

In fact MRIs show she looked like this and a proper translation of her hieroglyphs reads Nfurituje,which in Kinyarwanda means,"Calm and great beauty."
Tutsi have a lot of Horner including Oromo,Somali and occasionally Semitic looking Habesha features. Here the mass murderer Paul Kagame is with his doppelganger, the new Somali ambassador to Rwanda. They've historically been extremely selective with their breeding.
Especially the royal clans the Abega,Abanyiginya and Abakono have actively safeguarded their phenotype from contamination. Which explains the preponderance of stunning pulchritude among Tutsi women. 6 footers are common. Kagame's daughter Ange towers above 6" 2' Obama and is 6" 5'.

These are the Bantu leaders who stopped a continental race war. Kabila Sr and Robert Mugabe. Uncle Bob at the time of the 1998 invasion was head of Southern Development Community under whose jurisdiction he sent 11,000 troops to resist the foreign invaders.
Sam Nujoma who also contributed significantly to defend the DRC
Angolan prez Eduardo dos Santos forces were critical in rescuing Kinshasa from imminent capture in August 98 after Tutsi forces had seized the outskirts and had infiltrated most of the city.
The Tutsis with breathtaking hubris had actually operationalised a long running plan with their second 1998 invasion of the DRC to capture the entire continent and rule as proxies. Possible Tutsi agents had been identified as far as Botswana.
The two Tutsi supremacists,Kagame with his mentor Museveni. These two should be hanged hundreds of times over in any fair court for the 6mn+ Bantu deaths in the Great lakes resulting from their depradations since 1996 alone. That figure doesn't include the 1994 mass killings of Hutus the MSM wrongly refer to as the Tutsi genocide,the mass murder of Nilotes in Uganda after Museveni took power in the 80s or the hundreds of thousands of Baganda murdered in false flags during his 'freedom struggle' in Luweero, a Baganda region of Uganda.
The scope of the Tutsi power grab was so astonishing it was and still is unbeilevable even to serious researchers. Kenya,gateway both to the Great Lakes,Horn and the Indian Ocean was in their sights. In 97 they openly proclaimed Moi would leave 'but not necessarily by elections.' Truly they believed in their own propaganda. This is why some 20 RPF cadres a mix of spies,saboteurs and assassins were killed in a house in Riruta,some ten km, outside Nairobi by Recce coy of the GSU.
In the late 80s there was a cold ,sometimes hot war between the presidents of Uganda and Kenya. It came to a head in December 1987 with a firefight at the border town of Malava as Museveni's National Resistance Army fighters were repulsed by police GSU forces.
For a time both countries withdrew diplomatic relations. Moi actively supported anti Museveni forces while the latter activated a small armed resistance group sending a 100 Kenyan university students to Libya for guerrilla training. Their leader along with at least half the nascent embryonic rebel army were killed in a GSU raid at their Uganda base before they could infiltrate Kenya in 1990.
Undoubtedly the worst open anti black racists are Somalis. In the colonial era they enjoyed a higher status than Africans,just above Goans. When independence arrived they refused to allow themselves to be ruled by bantu Christians they considered beneath their own lordly status. Therefore it was only logical for their Kenyan homeland,the North eastern province bordering Somalia to secede.
It wasn't a surprising response since the Somali dna has always been extremely important to the community. They're one of the few Africans apart from Tutsis to marry their cousins. As such their gene pool has very little non Somali input and the phenotype has remained untouched.
To see real apartheid one need only look at how the Somali bantu population was treated. By the 1990s their numbers reached 1 mn. They were despised on multiple levels-for being Christian,bantu,farmers not pastoralists and ex slaves from Malawi,Mozambique and Tanzania who had been purchased in the 1800s from Zanzibar to work plantations mainly in S Somalia along the Shabelle river.
One can only imagine how these poor people suffered particularly in the early 90s during the long drawn out agony of national unravelling when starvation and clan wars and sheer contempt for human life killed between 350,000-500,000.
They're known as the jareerwayne,meaning nappy haired people. A million people reduced to a minor racial characteristic says much much more of racist attitudes than a hundred sociological field reports. During the worst of the famines in the early 90s,Western aid workers were shocked speechless when many starving Somalis would reject assistance from black UN and NGO workers! Even at the point of death they remain true to hardline racism.
These are Somali mummies from 3-4kya. For the longest time,long before Islamisation they've been a racially homogeneous group,marrying within their own lineages .
This racism was the wellspring of Kenya's first war,the Shifta war wherein the first Kenyatta government fought Somali forces and their local allies. It was a hot little war fought with platoons and companies with few if any prisoners across the length and breadth of the vast 100 km2 semi arid and deserts of the NEP.
It was merely one section of an intended Greater Somalia which would have adjoined the Somali part of Ethiopia,the Ogaden and Somalia itself.

Hard stats of this undeclared war are hard to come by but the secessionists lost big. Livestock,
Outsiders were recently shocked when opposition Somali MP Junat Muhamad publicly called Mombasa security chief a monkey! On live TV!!
At 5.50! He then repeatedly refused to apologise. Somalis in many ways are similar to the Caucasoid Neanderthals , the fake Jews,the impostors of Israel today. Their derogatory categorisations of others are nearly identical ; I strongly suspect similar sociocultarisation which leads to endless trouble for both Somalis and Jews.
A wiser man than I explained:
Israelis refer to non Jews as 'goyim,' which actually means 'human cattle,' while white females,particularly lusted over blondes are casually referred to as 'shiksas.' This actually means unclean. All non Kushites or Africans with wiry hair (madh madhou) are similarly dismissed as 'adoon,' though the term 'jareer' is used.
One of the few perspicacious commentators in our media,Gitau Warigi touched on the episode with insights into Somali sociocultural attitudes.
At first, I absolutely couldn’t believe an African would label a fellow African this way on local television. I had to ask several people who watched the broadcast to confirm that is what Suna East MP Junet Mohamed actually called Coast Regional Commissioner Nelson Marwa.
I can’t quite recall the exact circumstances, other than that it had something to do with Marwa’s ongoing crackdown on drug trafficking at the Coast.
Now, Junet is not Caucasian (White) by any stretch of the imagination. He is as Black and African as we come, with just a stretch of softer hair than the rest of us.
But I can guess where he is coming from. Being Cushitic is fine, but low-rent types like him tend to resort to this “monkey” business whenever they want to insult other Black Africans. Many ethnic Somali people I know will not go there. Not on TV, anyway. But those like Junet can’t resist going down the sewer.
This Junet-style mindset holds this picture of “lofty” Cushites pitted against Bantus like Marwa who rule them in Kenya and about whom they hark to ancient tales of how the latter migrated from Congo, where presumably they were swinging in the forests like apes.
There is a simple conversational recipe that never fails to madly inflame those with a bogus Cushitic “superiority complex” like Junet. First, gently remind them that they are kinsmen to clans from the only failed state in Africa.
Go on to say that that nation, which has over the years sought to reclaim “lost” provinces in Ethiopia and Kenya, has suffered successive and humiliating military defeats as a result.
Crown it all by reminding them that, as we speak, armies from five different African states, including Kenya and Ethiopia, are stationed inside the Somali state.
Dear Reader,that was simply an impromptu glimpse into the racist mindset that has caused Somalis an ocean of woe.
This is why Somalis in the diaspora since the 1991 collapse have problems with Afro Caribbeans, Nigerians in London and Black Americans-not other minorities. Here's a printscreen of their typical issues
In the late 80s a worsening environmental crisis caused by copper mine tailings at Rio Tinto'
s Panguna mine in Bougainville,a PNG island led to unrest,killings and finally war.
Bougainvillears aren't actually Papuans like most Papua new Guineans seen here. The common phenotype is prominent eyebrows, lantern jaws and reddish skin tones.
They're Melanasian,like the neighbouring Solomon Islanders,the darkest people in the world. Many carry a gene for blondness. Culturally,linguistically and phenotypically they're as far part from Papuans as Swedes and Swazis.
The Bougainville Revolutionary Army was greatly helped by abandoned Japanese army equipment which to today still litters the Pacific islands as far north as Micronesia. With passion and a minimum technical capability learned ironically from mining operations the BRA set about refurbishing as much of these weapons as they could. Luckily,help came from Fijian volunteers assisting their ethnic kin. Many not only bought arms but actively served in operations against the PNGDF.
By the time the conflict began in 88 to the signing of a peace deal a decade later almost 400 PNGDF servicemen were KIA along with at least 1500 BRA fighters. Due to a long held blockade of Bougainville medicines and food were withheld and the nature of COIN operations,the destruction of civilian infrastructure including clinics and hospitals at least 10,000 civilians died.
7% of the entire population died in violence,starvation or sickness brought about by the attempted secession.
That's akin to 20 mn Americans dead in ten years , 8mn Japanese or 9 mn Russians.

As of now Bougainville is under autonomy from PNG. Both sides have agreed to a referendum to be held in 2019 to decide upon secession or'independence' depending on your reading of the issue. I'm 95% sure the Black Melanasians will split from their Red Papuan brothers.
10,000 years ago L Turkana was much larger. The whole N Kenya was as wet as the DRC today.
A set of 28 skeletons was discovered 2 years back in what is being called the first mass murder. It wasn't a fight but rather a massacre;the perpetrators weren't interested in taking prisoners or simply overpowering the enemy. Men,women and kids were bludgeoned,hacked,tied up and drowned in what appeared to be an attempt to not just kill but literally erase the identity of the victims.
The evidence was graphic and unmistakable: the remains, which include at least eight women and six children, show skulls smashed in, skeletons shot through or stabbed with stone arrows and blades, and in four cases, hands almost certainly bound.
The discoveries, published on Wednesday in the journal Nature, were made in 2012 at Nataruk, a site 30km from Lake Turkana in northern Kenya’s Rift Valley, and is the earliest evidence of violent confrontation between nomadic hunter-gatherer groups.
“The deaths at Nataruk are testimony to the antiquity of inter-group violence and war,” said Marta Mirazon Lahr, from the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies at Cambridge, who led the study.
